The World Beacon

The Affiliated Media Group, an advertising agency, opened The World Beacon in April 2000. The World Beacon was a project which brokered religious radio programs for dissemination via the shortwave bands. I sent them a reception report soon after they came on the air and they replied with the limited edition special inaugural QSL card seen below for a transmission on 9675 kHz. A few months later they sent another QSL card with no data for the same reception report. I am not clear where the transmitting station was located, but believe it was Rampisham. The available DX literature indicates that they may have bought time on transmitters in Abu Dhabi, Meyerton, and an unnamed site in Russia. Affiliated Media Group shut down the project in April 2002 in order to pursue television and other projects instead.
