9395 kHz 02.30-03.00 UT WRMI AWR Wavescan with 1985 year interview by Jonathan Marks and Victor Goonetilleke 4S7VK on R Neth

Sunday, November 20 2022

Surprise, surprise, very very emotional memories came to my mind.

USA 9395 kHz WRMI Sun Nov 20 at 02.30 UT S=9+35dB powerhouse signal heard
in Alberta-CAN:

AWR Wavescan program. Old SWL memories of 1974 / 1975 came back into my
mind. On 9395 kHz I listened to today's AWR Wavescan program, with contain
of Jonathan Marks and Victor Goonetilleke interview recording for
Radio Netherlands Media Network DX px of 1985 year.

A decade earlier in 1975 I had visited Victor 4S7VK in Piliyandala / Mount
Lavinia beach on his wedding party with Niromi and also exchanged DX hobby
information about the Philips(?) 10x100 kW and 100 kW transmitter units
of SLBC Colombo in Ekala site and small 35 kW Collins unit of Voice of
America tx unit at the Ceylon island.

Victor's voice in the interview was also as clear and present as I met
him 48 years ago and could later accompany him on some of his European
trips to Basel, Vatican, Salzburg, Dusseldorf, Hilversum and DSWCI
club conventions in Denmark.

9395even kHz WRMI relay of Adrian's AWR Wavescan hobby program noted
22 kHz broad wideband audio at 02.47 UT, Jonathan/Victor interview of 1985
Tamil war conflict in 1985, bigger Tamil audience content: Talk on
Tamil, Sinhala, Hindi, Urdu different language family history.

Dutch colonial era history on Ceylon island centuries back.

SLBC studio move in WW II in 1941 to avoid the Japanese power.
Jonathan's e-mail address given at 02.55 UT, then followed French
Carribean Martinique music piece played in AWR Wavescan program end.
