Radio Free Africa Network 1377 kHz verified with an undet. Letter in 75 days. P.Robic-AUT direct to QIP Jan 00
Da RFA Mwanza, Tanzania, nicht auf meinen Empfangsbericht vom Oktober 99 reagiert hat, habe ich es gestern mal mit e-mail versucht. Dieses kam als Antwort vom Stationsdirektor Mr. Diallo : - Martin, Germany. - We need a current reception report to respond. We do not keep on-air records for more than 30 days to enable verification. - Plse bear with us and try to monitor again and send the report to us by e-mail and will respond accordingly. Thanks Diallo of Radio Free Africa. Mwanza, Tanzania. M.Elbe-D A-DX-ML Mrz 00

QSL : R. Free Africa, Tanzania, 1377 kHz : Da hatte ich die Hoffnung schon aufgegeben : Heute kam ein QSL-Brief von Radio Free Africa aus Tanzania, dazu ein Sticker. Ein erster Empfangsbericht vom Okt. 99 wurde nicht beantwortet, auf ein e-Mail follow-up im März bekam ich zur Antwort, daß man Details nur für die vergangenen 30 Tage prüfen könne und ich deshalb einen neuen Bericht schicken müßte. War jetzt nicht mehr so einfach, da 1377 kHz inzwischen von Radio Prizren belegt wird. Ging dann aber mit viel Mühen trotzdem. Laufzeit 105 Tage. Anschrift : Sahara Communication & Publishing Co. Ltd., P.O.Box 1732, Mwanza, Tanzania. E-Mail : rfa[ät]africaonline.co.tz Web : www.rfa.co.tz Begeisternd, wenn nichtexistierende Webpages genannt werden.

Radio Tanzania bestätigte einen RR über die Frequenz 5050 kHz nach 155 Tagen mit detaillierter QSL-Karte. Die Sendeleistung beträgt nur 10 kW, reicht aber bei guten Bedingungen, um hier mit 0=2-3 gehört zu werden. Gegen 18 UTC kommen kurze englischsprachige Weltnachrichten - so für etwa zwei Minuten. Insbesondere zur vollen Stunde sind IDs zu erwarten, und die sollten ernst genommen werden, da Verwechslung mit Togo auf 5047 kHz besteht dieses Signal kommt gewöhnlich besser rein. Bei mir war das nach einem RR in den 8Oer Jahren und einem weiteren unbeantworteten RR 1997 (trotz 1 US Rp) der dritte Versuch, diesmal lag ein IRC bei. v/s war N.Nyamwocha - for Director of Broadcasting. Die Adresse ist P.O.Box 9191, Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. J.Adolph-D Eastside DX 02 Sep 98
Recieved a card today from Radio Tanzania for a report from 2 August on 5050 kHz. Veri signer looks like N. Nyamwocha for Director of Broadcasting.

I enclosed $ 2 US. I sent to the letter to Mr. Muombwa in care of the station because other DXers have received replies from him.

Do you remember the mailing of M. Schöch informing us that he received a QSL-letter from Voice of Tanzania Zanzibar in which they appealed the DX-comunity to do some printing of QSL-cards ? If you do remember that, then you will probably also recall that I have taken up this challenge and send them a package of some 100 colour QSL cards. Today I was very glad to see that one of these cards arrived back here after a trip of 10 weeks. It was accompanied by a kind letter from Mister Abdulrah'man M. Said in which he expressed his thanks and stated that 'this will mark another era to Radio DX Listening Clubs' because they will be able to supply the needed cards. So if you want a QSL-card from Sauti ya Tanzania Zanzibar, write now ! If you want a picture from this QSL, ask me and I'll send you the file. Good DX ! G.Schotmans-BEL HCDX-ML Jun 98
At the end of march I reported the reception of a verification letter from The Voice of Tanzania Zanzibar (after only 25 days, on 11734 kHz). There they asked me to do the printing of QSLs for them. Belgian DXer Guido Schotmans took over this task and designed a beautiful colored qsl card showing a map of Zanzibar and a tranmitter place on the island. It seems, he even somehow managed to get the cards to Zanzibar since today I already received one of those newly designed qsl cards from them ! It was stamped with station seal and signed by A.M.Said. Together with it I received a copy of a thank you letter to Guido in Belgium. Quote 'This will mark another era to Radio DX listening club because we will be able to supply the needed qsls all over the world.' Radio Tanzania Zanzibar called me 'a real gentleman' in their letter. But its easy to spread a message on the net, but not so easy to deliver cards to Zanzibar. So we should all thank you Guido Schotmans ! Add : The Voice of Tanzania Zanzibar, Department of Broadcasting, P.O.Box 1178, Zanzibar, Tanzania M.Schöch-D HCDX-ML Jun 98
R. Tanzania Zanzibar / 11734 kHz, 22 days, pers. qsl-letter / $, picture postcard, v/s Ali Bakari Moumbwa. K.Oxenbauer-D ADDX 1998-21 Nov 98
Has anyone received (or seen reports about it in DX-magazines ?) that special Sauti ya Tanzania Zanzibar QSL I produced and sent to Zanzibar earlier in the spring of this year ? Remember when writing a RR to address it to Mister Abdulrah'man M. Said, The Voice of Tanzania Zanzibar, Department of Broadcasting, PO Box 1178, Zanzibar. G.Schotmans-BEL HCDX-ML Dez 98
Interesting to know. That makes At least 3 of us having this QSL : -I myself, -Martin Schöch, -Pentti Lintujärvi. I hope the list will grow further and that my efford was not senseless. G.Schotmans-BEL HCDX-ML Dez 98
I received 'Schotmans-Made' QSL-card and a letter from Radio Tanzania on 3rd of July 1998 as a response to my March '98 reception report. The verie signer was Mr. Said. P.Lintujärvi-FIN HCDX-ML Dez 98

Ali Bakari Muombwa von Radio Tanzania Zanzibar ist doch ein netter Mensch. Er hat mir wieder einen sehr ausführlichen Brief geschickt mit Infos über Zanzibar und Ratschlägen für meine geplante Reise dorthin. Sicher ist dieser Kontakt sehr viel mehr wert als jede QSL-Karte. Ali hat mir ja auch letztes Jahr einen RR per Brief bestätigt. Also, was will der Mensch mehr ? Doch da locken immer noch die QSL-Karten, die OM Guido Schotmans auf eigene Kosten hat drucken lassen und die sich irgendwo bei der Station befinden (sollten). Guido weiß von drei OM's, die eine dieser Karten bekommen haben. Die Frage sei gestattet : was wurde mit dem Rest veranstaltet ? Ali Bakari geht diesem Thema beharrlich aus dem Weg. Der Stationsdirektor Abdulrahman M.Said, an den man laut OM Guido seine RR's richten soll, gibt kein Lebenszeichen von sich. Der kluge Menschenverstand sagt einem nach drei vergeblichen Versuchen : gib's auf. Aber vielleicht riskiere ich ja noch einen Versuch.. E.Gehrig-E direct to QIP Mrz 99
I received a QSL letter from R. Tanzania Zanzibar last year within 30 days.v v/s was Mr Ali Bakari Muombwa, a very friendly employee who has repeatedly furnished travel information about Zanzibar to me. Unfortunately, I have not been able to receive one of the 100 QSL Cards that fellow DXer Guido Schotmans had made and shipped to Zanzibar at his own expense. To my knowledge, only three persons have received one of these rare QSL Cards. Hopefully I will be able to find out what happened to these during my scheduled visit to Radio Zanzibar in July of this year. E.Gehrig-E HCDX-ML Jun 99

R. Tanzania-Zanzibar : the QSL Card was designed by Dutch DXer Guido Schotmans and there were only 100 made. I have one and two or three other German DXers also received one. When I visited the RTZ last year they still had plenty of them. It seems they only send them out to selected people; -) RTZ remains a hard to QSL station. Good luck ! E.Gehrig-E A-DX-ML Jan 01
It was me [who designed the RTZ qsl card]. I have sent 100 pieces to Zanzibar in the spring of 98. But there are only very few DX'ers that have received one of those QSL. Enzio Gehrig made a trip to Zanzibar about a year ago and he assured me that there is still a stock of those QSL. It looks like they are using the QSL's for special occasions. And there is one big problem with reception reports. Almost nobody speaks English at RTZ. Somebody not in service at RTZ is translating reports into Swahili, and that takes time and a lot of trouble. So be patient. You can also try to write in Swahili. Maybe you can find a contact on the net that will translate your report. G.Schotmans-BEL HCDX-ML Jan 01

At least ! replay from Zanzibar ! : Hola, Yes, after a pile of reports today I have received QSL from " Sauti Ya Tanzania-Zanzibar ". As Enzio Gehrig suggest me I sent my last report to Khalid Hassan Rajab, Head of Shortwave Radio Transmitter, Voice of Tanzania Zanzibar, P.O. Box 1178 Zanzibar / Tanzania. With the report I sent a CD with the station recording, a PPC QSL, a S.A.E. and the only US banknote I had (a 5 $ one). I have received my PPC signed and sealed in the SAE I sent after 6 weeks. My 171 country ! M.Molano-E HCDX-ML Jan 01
Hello Daniele, Congratulations with your new QSL. You are one of the few that received the card that was designed by me. It's very strange, but it seems that, since I have sent that pile of QSL cards to Zanzibar some two years ago, only appx. 10 DX'ers received my card in reply to their RR's, while others received a QSL-letter. It's some kind of a lottery. Enzio Gehrig deserves also a part of the credit for keeping the ties with the DX-community alive. BTW : I thought that obtaining a Zanzibar QSL would become much more difficult because of the recent uprising on the island, but it turned out to be the opposite : the last few weeks, there were more reports on Zanzibar QSL's.

Bad news for Guido Schotmans : the number of his QSL cards at Voice of Tanzania Zanzibar stock has decreased by one.; -) Good news for Guido Schotmans : I thank him a lot (my thanks also go to Mr. Khalid Hassan Rajab, the veriesigner) -- I'm now among the successful holders of the QSL, designed by Guido, too !

Address: Sauti Ya Tanzania Zanzibar, P.O.Box 1178, Zanzibar, Tanzania. Signed by Khalid Hassan Rajab. [..] This QSL card has an interesting history. The station can be received on shortwave throughout the world, but for a long time people at it had no knowledge about reception verification. In spring of 1998, Belgian DXer Guido Schotmans designed a QSL card for Zanzibar, printed 100 copies and donated them to the station. In 1999, Spanish DXer Enzio Gehrig had a five-day visit to Zanzibar. Certainly, he visited its main radio station. Talking to its employees, Enzio realised why they respond to reception reports so rarely. It's because Ali Bakari Muombwa, the person responsible for incoming mail, cannot read in English well enough. He has to ask other people to translate listeners' reports into Swahili, and that causes delays and other problems. ?-? Signal DX 003 Mrz 01
Nevertheless, Enzio was content with results of his trip. He especially mentioned that all people he met there were very friendly and hospitable. When Enzio realized that people at the station are not aware of how to deal with QSL cards donated by Guido, he explained them all details of QSLing technique. In his turn, Mr.Rajab promised that all correct reports would be confirmed with that card. On the contrary, Khalid Hassan Rajab, SW transmitter chief, speaks English very well. (He has a training course in the US). Many DXers recommend to address letters to Mr.Rajab personally, but there's no 100 percent reply guarantee — writing responses is not his job at all. Giovanni d'Amico, from Switzerland, was the first DXer who reported in hard-core-dx about the verification written on this card. It was in March 2000. But DXers community still considers Sauti Ya Tanzania Zanzibar as a hard-to-QSL station. According to various sources, some people received that colorful QSL for their reports, while others had to be satisfied with nothing more than an official form confirmation letter. A kind of lottery? (- info taken from hard-core-dx and BC-DX archives) D.Mezin-RUS Signal DX 003 Mrz 01
