Two QSLs from South Africa

Who might these be? Very simply, Adventist World Radio and Radio France International. Their broadcasts originated from the famed SENTECH transmitter facility in Meyerton. This is the same site of the former Radio South Africa, Channel Africa and a variety of international broadcasters. The RFI programming was transmitted from a 100 kW ABB transmitter; the AWR programming aired using a 250 kW Brown Boveri transmitter. Both transmissions reached Malaysia with relatively good signal strength, during year 2014. Though RFI and AWR have been QSLed many times, from transmitter sites elsewhere in the world, there is still sweet satisfaction in receiving their programming from South Africa. 73s!
