WDEL 1150
Wilmington, Delaware

This nice handwritten QSL folder from WDEL AM 1150 in Wilmington, Delaware arrived in our mailbox today. For a nice touch the QSL folder has an “official” raised seal on it. WDEL is another semi-local here at my listening post in Maryland. Thanks to Allan Loudell of WDEL for taking the time to write up the QSL and send it for my reception report.

Radio Peking
Radio Beijing
China Radio International

The official overseas broadcaster of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) has had three names over the years. Radio Peking signed on the air for the first time in December 1941. The name was changed to Radio Beijing in 1983. Finally, it has been called China Radio International since 1993.

In return for reception reports over the years, they sent the QSL cards and souvenirs seen below. A couple of them are a bit unusual because they are for programs relayed on radio stations in the Washington, DC areas WBIS and WUST.
