Farewell QSL from International Serbia Radio

Here's another 'Farewell QSL'. This one comes from International Radio Serbia. A letter postmarked with a couple of lovely Serbian postage stamps arrived today, 29 July 2015. Enclosed with the letter was their QSL card for a May 2014 reception report and -- here's the disturbing part -- a note stating, "By decision of Serbian government, International Radio Serbia - Radio Yugoslavia, ceases to exist on 31 July 2015".

So, once again I have mixed feelings. I have great memories of listening to and verifying both Radio Belgrade and International Radio Serbia in past years. And now, it is disheartening news to see another shortwave broadcaster leave the airwaves.

THANK YOU International Radio Serbia for one last QSL and 79 years of service.
