The Chinese broadcasting scene 50 years ago was an alphabet soup of "X" calls. But the world famous "Voice of China" during the war years was XGOY, Chungking, the only international station. In 1947 an elaborate plan to increase international broadcasting from China was born with the introduction of a foreign service from 20 kw. XGOA in Nanking. It included the first English broadcasts to North America. The effort was under the guidance of Roy Dunlop, Director of Foreign Programs. Dunlop was a Canadian--an author, playwright and radio producer. He revised the foreign programming at station XORA in Shanghai as well, whose QSL is also shown here.
