100 YEARS OF RADIO

30 YEARS OF HOPE

December 12, 1901 is very significant in radio history. It is the day that the first transatlantic radio signal was successfully sent from Poldhu Cove, Cornwall, England (pictured above) to Signal Hill, St. John's, Newfoundland. Using a transmitter one hundred times more powerful than anything previously invented, radio was born. For his achievement Guglielmo Marconi received many awards including the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1909. Recognizing how radio can also bring peoples together from across the world, he was also invited to be part of the 1919 Peace conference in Paris.

AWR will be celebrating this start of radio history through its programming this December. But we have more cause for celebration. Seventy years later, on October 1, 1971, AWR began life as a simple twelve-hour transmission from Deutsche Welle transmitters in Sines, Portugal. For thirty years, AWR transmissions have served to share hope in a troubled world in times of crisis and times of peace. That message is even more important in the context of today’s world events. Following Marconi's dream, AWR jumps geo-political boundaries to share Good News and Hope by shortwave, medium wave, FM, satellite and Internet. We believe Marconi would be proud of us.

Rejoice greatly, O daughter of Zion; shout, O daughter of Jerusalem!
Behold, thy King cometh unto thee; He is the righteous Saviour, and He shall speak peace unto the heathen.
