Radio Zanzibar

Radio Zanzibar is a relatively easy catch in North America on the nominal frequency of 11735 kHz (actual 11734). In 1998, I heard them blasting in here to Maryland, and decided to send them a reception report. However, I understood that they were a reluctant verifier. So, reaching into my bag of tricks, I made up a prepared card and sent it with a reception report. Below is the reply I received from them.

The verie signer was Ali Bakri Muombwa. He did not reveal his position with the station, but he had a working knowledge of the station because he completely filled out the card including the transmitter site, and noted he checked the news items I listed. So I assume he worked for the station in some capacity and so this QSL counts.
