Hi Emile, try a Google search for "Haiti Radio". You might find something
there to your liking.

As far as I know there is nothing on shortwave out of Haiti at the moment.

This thread reminds me of my "old days" .

Looking at a QSL from  Radio 4VEH Cap-Haitien Haiti. The one that is black &
white and has a  childrens choir with a mic top center. It is to me & dated
12-12-1978 at 2305-2330 GMT on 11835 KHZ  25 meters. Signed by Edna Beachy.
I'm sure many of you have a card just like it.

Heck I don't even fool with QSL's anymore. Seems like it would cost a
fortune &  I dx for my enjoyment. Not to try to wow others.

When I first got my Amateur license again.....12/18/98 .... working &
verifiy my first 100 countries was a BIG deal for me. Heck it took me almost
7 months. Then I got into contesting & found I could easily work 100
countries in one weekend .

I guess that is one reason I don't fool with QSL's.

I collect QSL's for my enjoyment... and to 'wow' others! What fun!

But, to really 'advance' in the ham hobby, one has to have the QSL's, to get the
awards at least.

But as you say, the enjoyment does come first.

As far as I know, 4VEH is no longer broadcasting on the shortwave
band or on streaming audio.  To get news your best bet may be to
check on the web pages of missionary organizations operating in
Haiti and see if they have status reports.

Once again, Good morning, Steve!

When are you going to stop lying and live up to what you promised to do?

Don't forget to budget your time. You must listen to the radio 18 hours a day,
right? You must get those awards so no one mistakes you for another retard,
right?

And thanks for your wonderful message. It should prove to be real useful.

I have that card too....except I heard the station in early 1979. The
card came in the mail much later, around September 1979 if I recall
correctly.

Also in late 1979, I read in the "Sweden Calling DX-ers" newsletter
(remember those?) that the Haitian Goverment had made up some new rule
preventing 4VEH from using the shortwave bands (they still could use
the "tropical" bands though). They disappeared from 11835 around the
start of 1980, and moved down to a couple of tropical band frequencies.
I don't know how long they used them, but they're not there now....

4VEH also experimented with a special antenna to enhance skywave
transmission. This was on 1595(?) kHz. Lasted about a year or so.
