December 1992

The French called the Mid East the Levant, and Radio Levant was established by the Free French Forces when they and the British entered Syria in 1941 in order to eliminate pro-German activity. The station, FXE, was headquartered in Beirut and operated with 3 (later 10) kw. on about 8020 kc/s. It was destroyed, then sabotaged, and eventually rebuilt. The English news at 2000 GMT sometimes made it to the U.S. Radio Levant also had a transmitter in Damascus on 7090 kc/s.
