Galcom is presently working on a digital fix tuned radios 9/2001.
A recent Assist News Service article (May 2, 2001) looks at the
fascinating topic of portable missionaries. The focus of the article is
Galcom International, a Canadian based missions group, which, since 1989 has
invaded some of the remotest regions of the world by means of around
371,000 fix-tuned radios (AM, FM and short-wave). Galcom
International Director, Allan T. McGuirl, refers to these radios as portable
missionaries, because, as he says, they have no head, no arms or legs, but
they can go into any country. They don't need a visa or a holiday; they speak
the language immediately upon arrival and they work for 24 hours a day
without a complaint." If you'd like text copy of the article let me know:

Five students from the Robert Wagner Graduate School for Public Service at
New York University spent three weeks in Mozambique in January, collecting
data as to degree of usefulness of wind-up radios in a country where more
than half the population is illiterate. About 7,300 donated radios were
distributed to religious and community leaders in the months following the
devastating winter floods of 2000.
