Yesterday, 23 Sep I couldn't trace the station at all 1600-1800 and Sam gave explanation for that: "Yesterday our city power only worked in some areas, not ours, so we used our generator which means we cannot use our amplifier so we only used 100Watts last night."

Der Bericht ging (mitsamt Cassettenmitschnitt und Rückporto) an die bekannte Adresse in Deutschland (Konsularische Vertretung der Republik Somaliland, Zedernweg 6, 50127 Bergheim).

[SOM] Radio Hargeisa bestätigte die Frequenz 7530 nach nur 6 Tagen Postlaufzeit - von Spanien nach Deutschland und retour rekordverdächtig ! E.Gehrig-E A-DX-ML Jan 01
[SOM] 11640 & 11645 Radio Hargesia 2- f/d 'studio cards with two announcers' plus 2-PPC's, signed and stamped, in 23 years and 53 days after initial report send to station way back in 1977; 89 days after last attempt from the address in Germany v/s A.Dobenes, Consul. Thanks to Harald Kuhl for opening this one up especially for me to get this one finally verified. (Kusalik) E.Kusalik-AB-CAN Cumbre DX 330 Jan 01
[SOM] Coming home from another day at the City Operations, my wife indicated that I had possibly a QSL (she knows when I get these QSL replies..those strange envelopes with unusual stamps). Going into my DX shack (where else would one find a QSL reply) noticed the envelope, with the Large seal for 'Republic of Somaliland'. Nervously, I hesitated, but urging from my wife..'well go ahead open it' slowly opened the envelope. Out came two verification cards, showing the studios of Radio Hargesia, with station personal at the controls and on the back full data details. The reverse also gave a brief explanation about the Republic of Somaliland's history. Included with the full data QSL cards, was my own Prepared Cards, signed and stamped. The signature on the cards appear as 'A. Dobencs.Consul'. My reception was for November the 8th.1977 on 11645, and the second logging was for October the 12th.1987 on 11640 kHz. This ends my quest for a Radio Hargesia Verification..after 24 years of trying to get a reply. Wouldn't believe the lengths I went to get my reports verified, follow-ups, embassy routes, till finally just recently finding an address in Germany. Even had my good friend, Joe Talbot of Red Deer, Alberta, actually visit the station, on his trip to Africa. He just couldn't get past the armed guards at the front gate. In fact, Joe attempted some time ago to get my reports verified by 'contacts' in Ethiopia. Thanks to Harald Kuhl for the address and to Joe Talbot, for his support. The chapter is closed on this last African Country to get verified finally. E.Kusalik-AB-CAN direct to QIP Jan 01
[SOM] On Dec 26 I received a p / d Radio Hargeisa QSL- the same " studio card " others have received- in 53 days for a cassette tape and mint stamps from the German Consulate.

This was for 7530 kHz for Hargeisa's morning transmission (0328 UTC). Thanks to Harald Kuhl for the address ! J.L.Sgrulletta-NY-USA direct to QIP Jan 01

[SOM] R Hargeisa 7530 k 5d. T.-H.Ekblom-DNK Norwegian DX News 2001-02 Feb 01
[SOM] R. Hargeisa: Exact replica of the QSL reply for Hargeisa quoted in NU 1616 [..]; in 10 days for GM stamps. Prepared sheet also filled out. This was for a copy of a 1976 rpt on the period of rcpn on 11646 quoted in NU 364 [Nov 27, 1976--JB]. Seems that 24 years is a magic number for African holdouts; it took me also 24 years and numerous rpts to get responses out of Malabo and Zanzibar. That disposes of my African backlog. Now, does anyone know any successor to the Gibraltar Steamship Co. or a Swan Island consul who can handle a 1962 rpt on R. Swan/Americas? (Howard Hunt wasn't interested.) Two other things worth noting about the Hargeisa QSL. First, the consul represents the Republic of SomaliLAND, i.e. not exactly a country, more a quasi-country like Free Bougainville. I guess this works because Hargeisa is a long way from the center of authority in Somalia, and there isn't much of a central authority at the center anyway at present. But this doesn't affect the value (even philosophical validity) of the QSL, fortunately. Second, as far as my rough counting of SWBC stns according to demanding NASWA-type criteria on what it takes for a "station" to be a station, this is my 1000th SW stn verified. Time for a short rest now? J.Campbell-G Numero Uno 1617 Feb 01

Falls also Baldur, wie erwaehnt, zurueck sein sollte aus Somaliland und die Cassette selber abhoerte, duerfte klar sein, dass die eigenartige Musik doch von Radio Hargeisa kam. Auch in meinem Fall gab es keinerlei Ansagen. J.Thiel-D A-DX-ML Mai 02
