DODECANESE ISLANDS (RHODES)


QSL card from VOA on USCGC Courier at Rhodes 10 May 1956 on 11.760 MHz. Power was 35 kw.


This QSL was from the Voice of America relay station located on the U.S. Coast Guard Cutter the Courier that was docked at the island of Rhodes. This is the only instance, in my knowledge, of the use of a moored ship as a permanent radio station for broadcasting to countries other than the one it was moored in.
