Empece en 1984, y a lo largo de estas decadas he podido escucharlos desde sus inicios y su gran participacion en el diexismo mexicano. Por esta razon les escribi a travez de mi primera maquina de escribir de mi madre, Oliveti modelo Lettera 22, lo cual fue el primer medio escrito que use para este intercambio epistolar antes de usar la computadora, asi que crei que seria un gran detalle para ustedes. He escuchado con gran agrado y gran interes su desarrollo desde esos primeros anos hasta la fecha. Me gusto mucho las fotos que pusieron en Facebook sobre su aniversario en los nuevos transmisores que adquirieron. Recientemente escuche el programa Antena DX en 9955 kHz a las 0205-0230 UTC con SINPO 45544,

Eastbourne, East Sussex, United Kingdom (Christopher Stacey) – First of all, may I congratulate you on establishing Global 24 Radio. Also may I wish you well in this project. It is a noble project. I live in a condominium on the seafront in Eastbourne, a seaside resort and business centre with a population of about 100,000 on the south coast of England, 60 miles southeast of London. If you look out of my front window there is nothing between me and Moulogne-sur-mer in the Pas de Calais in northwest France, save 60 miles of sea and sky.

I heard a program called Caribbean Trust, followed by some beautiful Spanish music. Reception was very good at 2315 hours with a strong signal. I can also receive this frequency around 1100 UTC but the signal is not so strong. I enjoy your programming very much. 9955 kHz is quite a difficult catch for long periods of time here at my location. World of Radio and Wavescan would be ideal for 11580 kHz.

The radio helps me to learn more about the peoples and the nations of the world.
