* visit to Radio Damascus
Dear Radio Friends
I just arrived back home in Belgium today after a fabulous 4-week visit to the beautiful and friendly country Syria is.
My very dear friends of Radio Damascus organised a whole program for me, reflecting the legendary Syrian hospitality.
The head of the English section, Mr. Rasheed Haidar, also organised several meetings for me with the director of the External services , the chief engineer of Radio Damascus’ shortwave station in Adra and the other staff of Radio Damascus.
I will very soon send you a full and detailed report of all the meetings I had with the motivated team of professionals at Radio Damascus, working very hard to bring us every day an attractive and informative program as well as what the chief engineer had to say about the known problems (modulation…)… be patient, good news is in the pipeline 🙂 .
From today on I again started to put the daily audio recording of the English program on the unofficial website of Radio Damascus I built for them at :
The podcast is in a regular MP3 format so you can take it with you on your Ipods or other MP3 players.
You can alternatively listen to the daily program of Radio Damascus on the official website of RTV Syria at :
A major update of the http://www.radio-damascus.net website will follow in the coming days.
And please send a letter or email to the good people of Radio Damascus. They love to hear from their listeners what they like about the programs.
The address is :
P.O. Box 4702

Or you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org which will be forwarded to the Radio Damascus staff immediately.
I also ask you, dear listeners of Radio Damascus, to let me know how you receive Radio Damascus in your part of the world on the shortwave bands. On which frequency you listen (9330 or 12085 khz). And if there is an improvement in modulation and reception conditions in general of Radio Damascus.
Stay tuned… more to follow soon!
