 Subject: HAPPY ANNIVERSARY
 
 Congratulations Glen on your 1000 World of Radio program. I have been 
 listening since the beginning when the show started on WRNO Worldwide.
 
 My name is Jim Taylor and I wrote you a few months ago. I am a HAM 
 Radio operator and my call is KB5FNW. Congratulations again and best 
 regards from New Orleans. (Jim Taylor, August 1)

Congratulations on reaching the 1000th edition of WORLD OF RADIO
(Edwin Southwell, Hants, 3rd August)

Hello, My name is Kelly Thomas and I live in Central Florida USA. I just 
wanted to let you know how much I enjoy your broadcast! It is great!  I 
try to listen every chance I get. Keep up the Good work that you do and 
God Bless you! (Kelly Thomas, March 16)

Howdy Glenn! Enjoyed  your radio spots for years ! If you have an 
e-mailing list, please put me on it! Hey !, have you ever thought of 
doing voice over work? Your voice has such "This is God speaking, so 
get your act together" quality about it, that seems sombody would find 
you all sorts of work ! Your fan, (Dan White)

Hello. I heard your program today. I think that you do a good job 
keeping listeners informed. Keep up the good work. Sincerely (Kevin 
Smith, March 8)

Hi Mr. Hauser, Just a short note to thank you for your programs and all 
the work you do to keep us informed. I listen to you mostly through the 
internet, although I can, sometimes, pick you up on RFPI with my Zenith - 
Trans Oceanic, cir 1956. Thanks, again, (Thom Leonard, Feb 28)

MONITORING TIMES FANMAIL

I am kind of a strange man - I purchase MT at the newsstand.  Why?
Because it's a good excuse for me taking a 70 mile road trip to the Quad
Cities every month, hi hi.  Actually, I do it so that other folks out at
the mall will, hopefully, stumble upon the newsrack and grab a copy for
themselves.  And so, hopefully, the subscriber base grows. It's a shame
that MT isn't on more racks around my area.  But I know it's not an easy
thing to do, getting them to distrubutors as well as subscribers.
  As for your competition, what else can I say?  It is definitely a pale
shadow of the quality product that your staff puts out!  It's a very,
very rare thing for me to not read Monitoring Times from cover to cover.
And of course, I find myself referring again and again to the copies
I've already read!
  One final, very important point:  Monitoring Times is MUCH more timely
than PC.  By a matter of 1 or 2 months, at least.  I think it must be a
motivated staff.  You all definitely show your true colors as dedicated
radio enthusiasts, as well as devoted writers, editors, and publishers.  
If you ever think about the competition and wonder who is the best, take 
a look in the mirror. (Stephen M.H. Lawrence, Dubuque, Iowa)

Good move on airing the first WOR broadcasts two days earlier.  It 
should make it even more timely.  I usually grab it as soon as it 
appears on WRN. (Dan Lewis, wbcq.net)

        Hi, Glenn, and as always thanks for your efforts. Al Weiner is 
entitled to his opinion, of course, but there is far too much hysteria 
on the airwaves as it is and I've been listening to you for longer than 
I care to admit :-)  For what it's worth, my better half Mike is no SWL 
but he sez you have a pleasant radio voice and I concur. The thought of 
WOR degenerating into just-another-nut-on-the-air, like so much other 
programming we are forced to endure, makes my stomach turn. Very 73 and 
Happy Valentine's Day de Anne Fanelli in Elma, NY 

THANKS FOR THE INFO MR HOUSER. IT SEEMS YOU ARE THE MOST INFORMED 
PERSON THERE IS WHEN IT COMES TO RADIO.  MY NAMES TIMOTHY NEBOUT.  I'M 
A 18 YEAR OLD SHORTWAVE LISTENER AND 11 METER CB'ER/DXER.  I LISTEN TO 
YOUR PROGRAM AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE ON THE SW BANDS BUT SINCE I HAVE THIS 
COMPUTER I THINK I WILL LISTEN MORE ONLINE. SOMETIMES ITS HARD TO COPY 
THE TIMES AND FREQS WHILE THE SIGNAL IS IN AND OUT.  I HAVE A OLD RADIO 
SHACK DIGITAL RECIEVER WITH A SLOPER ANTENNA THATS COMMERCIALLY MADE 
WITH SOME TRAPS IN IT. THIS WORKS FAIRLY WELL BUT I THINK MY RECIEVER IS 
REALLY  LACKING IN SENSITIVITY BECAUSE WHEN I LISTEN TO THE HAM BANDS I 
HEAR THEM GIVING STRONG SIGNAL REPORTS TO EACH OTHER AND I CAN BARELY 
HEAR THEM.  YOUR SHOW WAS THE FIRST OF ITS TYPE THAT I EVER LISTENED TO 
AND IT STILL REMAINS MY FAVORITE.  HOPE TO HEAR BACK SOON.  YOUR FRIEND 
AND FAN TIM NEBOUT

Congratulations on having done the incredible work over the years to
prepare and have aired over a thousand different WOR programs. You've
done more for the DX hobby than any other living person on the planet.
My hat is off to you. It is an honor to have known you over the years
and I really appreciate all the vast amount of information that you 
have given to me and the rest of the SWL/DXer world; information we
would not have received via any other route. If I had a laurel tree,
I'd make you a wreath. (Will Martin, MO, Jan 26)

I just have to tell you that I adore your voice on radio. 

You are wonderfully articulate, your grammar and enunciation are 
excellent, but most outstanding is its tonal quality.  I'd call it 
melodic, for lack of a better word (too bad I can't get to my 
thesaurus at the moment). It's smooth and consistent and extremely 
pleasant to hear. I'll stop there since I am a happily married woman. 

I also want to praise your technical expertise as well as your 
professionalism.  You don't seem to allow any emotional extremes in 
there, yet are not monotonous. 

Contrast this against the moody whines and moans that ultimately will 
surface at some point within the average broadcaster's rhetoric. 

I am curious about who you are and how you got to where you are and 
what you do now...for instance, how and where did you grow in the 
profession - was it through discipleship with one or more mentor(s), 
or did you receive formal radio electronics/broadcasting training ? 
                        
I have known only two people in my life who came even close to your 
knowledge of the subject...both are broadcast engineers, one with a 
local commercial Christian station and the other the communications 
director for our state (RI) Office of Emergency Management (and Air 
National Guard Comm. specialist).  
                        
He taught me how to climb and work on radio towers (best to remember: 
"dont't look UP !"), and he used to let me go with him to some of the 
transmitter sites and watch him work on the equipment.  Both of these 
guys are just plain radioelectronics through and through (dropping 
English down to their SECOND language).  I get the impression some 
people are just about born that way.  

Does that describe you also ?  I am enamored with the whole discipline, 
but I find it a little harder to study and learn the heavier technical 
stuff.  It seems to me it may have something to do with left-brain/
right-brain differences (gender-related).  What do you think ? 
                        
Also I'd love to read anything you've written personally, in which you 
express your opinions on things. Thank you for your consistently 
reliable and thoroughly enjoyable broadcasts to which you are obviously 
so committed. (Jennifer G. Ellis, Tiverton, RI) 

I should also point out that this "attitude" is elsewhere than just 
the NRC. I believe you can put guys like Glen Hauser, and a few of the 
other radio/dx clubs in the mix.  They continue to output information 
where commercial publications and broadcasters would never go. And yes, 
I do respect that some radio stations and people have to make a buck... 
but my point is, the person that does it because they feel the need to 
inform and educate are, (IMHO), a lot higher up the ladder than those 
that do it because it's a job.  As a matter of fact, I've noticed that 
when people start treating it like a job, then they fail at what they 
do. I also put more credence in content of what these people say because 
I know their opinion is not swayed by what some company or government 
might think. (Fred Vobbe, NRC DX Audio Service)

Dear Glenn, I have been browsing through your web page today and read
your interview. When I came to the part where you expressed your views on 
professional sports and organized religion, I stood up and applauded! I look at 
these sports fanatics and wonder what planet they came from. Most of them 
seem to be very shallow and you're right - they need to get a life!

I love your broadcasts and thank you for keeping the web site secondary. I do 
not have a computer at home and will not get one until shortwave dies 
completely. If I had a million to give away, I would let you start that station. I 
agree with you about not buying a high-end receiver until you have the right 
situation. Goodbye for now and thanks again for your good work. Sincerely, 
(David Mays, TX, Sept 26 via P-mail) 

WORLD OF RADIO. Greetings: Love your show and enjoy your comments as 
much as the content. Will listen regularly now that I found you on the internet. I 
know you do some work with Short Wave Radio. I have been for years trying to 
pick up the English service of "Voice Of Mongolia" for years. I tried their website 
again recently and see that they will be broadcasting on the Internet soon. I 
really look forward to hearing from this unknown country. Keep up the excellent 
programs (Tom Sliva, Sept 19)

I just drop this note to thank you for the latest SW-DX Report (#40). It had most 
interesting reading and greatest stuff I have seen anywhere for ages; I mean 
especially the glorious first-days-experiences for WBCQ. Keep up the good work. 
Best 73's, (Jari Lehtinen, Lahti, Finland, "The Crowd" of #swl)
