friends, This weekend, the final four minutes of Shortwave Radiogram will be
devoted to an advertising campaign by Tecsun Radios Australia.
Revenue from the advertising goes to WRMI to defray the
considerable expense of transmitting, and helps keep shortwave alive.
The campaign includes a chance to win a Tecsun PL-880 radio.
Preliminary messages will be this weekend and next weekend. The
actual campaign, with text and images, begins the weekend of 21
December and continues through 25-27 January.
Last weekend's ASCII art was very successful (see examples below).
We'll do it again in furture broadcasts.
