Radio Reception Survey in Guyana

TWR missionary, Ernie Franke, recently spent a week in Guyana, visiting some of our listeners and checking out how well our programming was getting into that country. We are planning to add Spanish programming to our evening schedule, but want to be sure not to mess up our English programming in the process. All the buildings are constructed of wood in Guyana. Sort of reminds me of Ocean Grove, NJ.

Here are pictures of some of the people who have corresponded with our station on Bonaire.

Ernie was really happy to be able to meet them in person.

In case you are wondering, Ernie brings that bear with him all over the world.

Ernie found that in the evening, there are only two AM radio stations across the whole the radio dial. That may be why we get more letters from Guyana than from any other country/island.

The good news is that our radio signals seem to be doing exctly what the computer models say they should be doing. Ernie is now studying the radio reception situation in Venezuela. We may be able to make some programming changes in October, but the substantial Spanish language changes may not be ready 'till the beginning of 2007.Posted by Picasa
