Adventist World Radio Wavescan DX Contest 2009

Once again, Adventist World Radio takes pleasure in conducting an
annual listener contest, and for this year the title is: "Silent
Shortwave Station Contest". You are invited to search through your
own QSL collection and assemble together all of your QSLs that verify
the reception of shortwave stations and/or shortwave transmitters that
are no longer on the air. In addition to the regular awards
worldwide, there will be special awards for those who include a
reception report of our DX program, "Wavescan", via
radio Miami International WRMI, in Miami Florida. Here are all of the details:-

1. List what you consider to be the five best QSLs from shortwave
stations or transmitters that are no longer on the air. The "best"
may be described as the station or the transmitter itself, or the
distance, or the power, or the age, or the circumstances under which
you heard the station; or the QSL card itself, etc. (Do not send the
original cards.)

2. In one paragraph each, describe the reason why you consider each
card to be one of the best in your collection.

3. Enclose a photocopy or each of these five cards, preferably in
color, though black and white may be acceptable. Remember, do not
send the originals.

4. Send at least three reception reports on any AWR broadcast from
KSDA Guam, or any AWR relay broadcast via any relay station anywhere
in the world. The AWR broadcasts may be on shortwave, mediumwave, or
FM. All reception reports will be verified with a contest endorsement
on the QSL card.

5. Where possible, please enclose three radio cards for inclusion in
the Indianapolis QSL collection. These cards may be old or new, and
they may be QSL cards, reception report cards, picture cards, etc.
Not valid for this contest are amateur nor CB QSL cards.

The 2009 AWR DX Contest, "Silent Shortwave Station Contest", will run
through the month of June. All contest entries must be postmarked at
the listener's location in any country of the world on any date during
the month of June, and they must be delivered to the AWR postal
address in Indianapolis no later than the end of July 2009. Return
postage in the form of currency notes in an international currency,
mint postage stamps, or IRC coupons would be appreciated. Also, where
possible, provide a self
addressed envelope, business size or half quarto size.
The only address for the 2009 "Silent Shortwave Station Contest" is:-

Silent Shortwave Station Contest
Box 29235
IN 46229 USA

The awards for this year's contest will be similar to all previous
contests. There will be a special award for the world winner, one of
the Jerry Berg radio history books; and "World Radio TV Handbook" or
"Passport to World Band Radio" for continental winners. In addition,
there will be special awards for those who send in a reception report
on the broadcast of "Wavescan" over the shortwave station in Miami,
