KSDA Adventist World Radio, GUAM – 15715 kHz

I then tuned into KSDA Adventist World Radio in GUAM on 15715 kHz in the 19m shortwave band. They were broadcasting in the Mandarin language.

Adventist World Radio (AWR) is a religious broadcast station. Their website states:-

No walls, no borders, no limits. AWR’s broadcasts travel where missionaries cannot go, transforming lives for eternity.

Adventist World Radio commenced airing programs for the first time in 1971 from a rented shortwave station in Portugal. The main focus of the broadcasts was to carry the gospel into Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa. AWR subsequently decided to build its own shortwave station on the island of Guam. In 1987 broadcasts began from KSDA-SW, covering the entire Pacific Rim: North and South Korea, Japan, China, and other neighbouring countries.

AWR broadcasts in about 80 languages via AWR’s Guam station and leased transmitters in various locations (see the map below):

I was copying KSDA well. The signal strength was strong with only minimal fading.
