Reception schrieb:
Almost two years to the day after it's launch, the World Beacon will sign off, effective April 15. Affiliated Media Group, the parent company that operates the short wave based mission initiative has announced it will suspend operations to concentrate on the company's domestic ministerial

The Beacon was the brain child of Affiliated Media Group founder and chairman Ray Davis, who conceived a Caribbean version in the 1970s. At it's height, The World Beacon broadcast a full weekly schedule to Africa, Europe and Russia, shuttering European and Asian operations when sufficient clients could not be found to fill the broadcast time slots. The station broadcast from transmitters in England, South Africa, Russia and the United Arab

The Beacon was in fact the victim of Affiliated's incredible growth and success. The agency which represents a wide array of spiritual and secular clients found demand for it's domestic services far exceeded client requests for overseas radio ministry opportunities. The events surrounding September 11, 2001 were also a factor, limiting the company's ability to receive and
 respond to the flood of mail that the Beacon received each week.

The World Beacon launched on April 2, 2000 with it's popular signature theme performed by the new age group Deep Forest. In addition to a full schedule
 of spiritual programming, the Beacon produced "Midnight Ministry" and
"DXQSL" which were dubbed "listener appreciation programs." The station was profiled on the popular Radio Netherlands Media Network program and had a
 large cadre of devoted listeners around the world.

Program director Jeff Johnson will continue to process reception reports
 through April 15. Send yours via email to reception@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
