The Mighty 1630 KCJJ
Iowa City, Iowa

When conditions are good to the west, The Mighty 1630 KCJJ can be heard breaking through the co-channel interference with a readable signal. I heard them on 30 January this year and decided to send them a reception report. Thank you to Jim Hunter, the station’s operations manager, for taking the time to reply by sending the QSL letter that you see below.

La Voz de la Amistad

KGEI, first known as W6XBE, came on the air in 1939. Later that year, the owners, General Electric (GE) changed the call sign to KGEI for GE International. Sometime after World War II, the Far East Broadcasting Company (FEBC) acquired KGEI and broadcast religious and other programs focusing on Latin America. They used the slogan La Voz de la Amistad (The Voice of Friendship.) FEBC closed the station down in July 1994 after they tried to sell the station, but could not find a buyer.

In response to my three reception reports, they sent the QSL cards which can be seen below
