FW: Re: [HCDX] FW: Sam Voron-Somalia test report from Finland.

Hello Everyone: Please this type of "report" is not wanted, this is a waste of station staffs time and an insult to ones intelligence! This is NO WAY to get a QSL. I am here at Radio Galkayo, the station female annoucers laughed at this "report". "We may be African, however NOT stupid".
Please we would love to receive your correct reception reports. I have completed repairs to the SW amp and transmitter, listeners are reporting very good signals across Somaila, into Kenya, Ethiopia, Djibouti and Yeman. FM antenna repairs are now also complete, the < 20 watts FM covers Galkayo town very well.
Radio Galkayo is the most popular station in the Horn of Africa, the "new" sked: 0400-0600 and 0900-1900, this change per the Asst. Director. I have reminded him that the aging transmitter and amp may not handle to new work load, the people have spoken "We Want Our Radio Galkayo.
Please tune in, we would be happy to hear from you. We have no mail service, but I will arrange that full data QSL letters be mailed by travellers going abroad. 73.
