Happy station New Years contest

Hi Everyone,

Starting September 10th, 2009 we are launching a New Years contest with the
winners to be announced at 1230am (local HK TIME) that's 1730UTC on January 1st, 2010.

Times reflect the November time shift. Meaning 0100UTC now will be 0200UTC after that.

Let me fill you in the loop as they say. On December 31, 2009 both editions of Happy Station will be 2 hours each.

The transmission at 0200UTC will be a special program for South America and
the Caribbean and will run for 2 hours. Details are still being worked on at
this moment. I will fill you in when they become available. This program
will be recorded.

The transmission at 1600UTC will be LIVE from Hong Kong. My friends at RTHK
(Radio Television Hong Kong) are giving us a studio over looking Victoria
Harbor where at 1659UTC we will do the countdown to 2010. They are also
letting us patch into the audio feeds for RTHK, so you will be able to hear
the countdown live as it happens in Hong Kong. After the countdown, plus a
small concert of the Hong Kong Symphony Orchestra I will announce the winner
of the contest. Prizes listed below!

This contest is open to both email and post entries. But to enter you will
need to send in the time and date you hear a short message that will start
to air September 11, 2009 for the broadcast at 0100UTC. This message will
also be used during the 1500UTC program, and for the shows for Indonesia and
New Zealand. Now the message is in code, but if you can't understand it.
That's not important! What's important is you report the time you heard it
and the date. I will announce the the shows next week more details about how
it will work. But please remember to include your postal address! And that
even goes to those who send in emails.

1st Prize: Sangean ATS909
2nd Prize: Sangean ATS606
3rd Prize: The 3 books from Jerry Berg about SW
4th Prize: 1 Year membership to Communication from the BDXC
5th Prize: 10 winners of a CD by Tom Meijer called Easy Come, Easy Go!

So good luck to everyone!

Warmest regards,
Keith Perron
