80th Anniversary of Radio Moldova.

MOLDOVA POST on 29 October 2010 issued a first day cover stamp marking the 80th anniversary of Radio Moldova. Cancellation postmark originated from Chişinău, Republic of Moldova. The printer was Tipografia Centrală, Chişinău and the designer was Vitalie Roşca. The stamp depicted the heaquarters of Radio Moldova. This particular FDC also carries an antique radio (one of two) issued in 2019.

The first radio transmission from Moldova was broadcast on 1 November 1928 by the Radiotelephonic Broadcasting Company in Bucharest. On 30 October 1930, in Tiraspol started broadcasting a Soviet radio station of 4 kW whose main purpose was the anti-Romanian propaganda to Moldova between Prut and Dniester. A new radio mast, M. Gorky, built in 1936 in Tiraspol, allowed greater coverage of the territory of Bessarabia. In that context, in 1937, Chişinău City Hall gave the Romanian Radio Broadcasting Company a building to open the first radio station in Chişinău, to counter Soviet propaganda. Experimental programmes began in the early days of June 1939. The transmitter installed by Marconi Company in Chişinău was the best in Romania. The first radio station in Chişinău was "twice stronger than that of Bucharest or that one in Tiraspol" wrote Gazeta Basarabiei in July 1939.
