SIBC 70TH ANNIVERSARY 23 Sept Special QSL.
This month, the Solomon Islands Broadcasting Corporation (SIBC) is celebrating 70 years of radio broadcasting in the country.
The original Solomon Islands Broadcasting Service (SIBS) went on the air through station VQO Honiara on the 23rd September 1952. Thus the 70th anniversary will be celebrated on the 23rd September 2022.
To mark the event, the SIBC will issue a special e-QSL card to long-distance listeners who report hearing the station (either MW [1035 kHz Honiara / Ed] or SW transmissions) on that day.
Please send reception reports (with appropriate program details for authenticity) to the SIBC at
It would be appreciated if these details could be shared with other DX and SWL networks worldwide.
