Xinjiang People’s Broadcasting Station
5800 kHz

Xinjiang People’s Broadcasting Station (新疆人民广播电台, Xīnjiāng Rénmín Guǎngbō Diàntái) is the name of a radio station which broadcasts from Urumchi, China. They broadcast programs in Uyghur, Chinese, Mongolian, and Kazakh languages. They were heard in Spokane, Washington in 1980, and replied with the all Chinese language QSL card and letter below. I cannot read Chinese, but a friend who does told me that they did indeed verify my reception report for their transmission on 5800 kHz.

Heilongjiang People’s Broadcasting Station,
Harbin, China
4915 kHz

Heilongjiang People’s Broadcasting Station in Harbin, China was a shortwave re-broadcaster on 4915 kHz. The name of the station in Chinese is 黑龙江人民广播电台 (Pinyin: Hēilóngjiāng Rénmín Guǎngbō Diàntái). The station’s successor Long Guang (Chinese: 龙广 Pinyin: Lóngguǎng) or Dragon Broadcaster in English does not broadcast on shortwave. I heard this station regularly on the West Coast of the USA around 1980. I sent a report to the Central Broadcasting Station in Beijing and they responded with the QSL card below.

For radio country counters, this station was located in the Manchuria portion of China (NASWA), a country that no longer has a shortwave station from what I understand.

Radio Omdurman
Sudan National Broadcasting Corporation

Radio Omdurman, the international service of Sudan National Broadcasting Corporation was occasionally active on the shortwave bands over the years. They responded with the mimeograph QSL form letter below for my reception report in 1986.

According to, Sudan is still on the air on 7205 kHz as Sudan Radio and on 9505 kHz as the Voice of Africa. Thank you to Dan Robinson for the information.
