One of the earliest views of the CRCM compound in 1946 or 1947. The inscription on the back, probably written by Arvid Veidmark: "More Q. material. Little house on right is plywood." Apparently "Q" meant Quonset (military prefab) material from which the first transmitter building and missionary housing would be built. The famous "jeepdozer" is visible under the tree, as well as the "gate house" in the background.

William Winter was the CBS/KSFO commentator who broadcast hope to America's allies on KGEI, during World War II. This photograph, from his book "Voice from America," shows him in 1946 in the Philippines, to attend a State dinner in his honor, given by President Manuel Roxas. FEBC acquired KGEI in 1960, but maintains its historical record from 1939.

These are four copies, probably made in the 1960s, of the minutes of the first FEBC Advisory Board Meeting, held in Los Angeles. Note James Hudson Taylor II, was in attendance. The original document is not found. The Shoreham Hotel was the location of the second FEBC office (the first was in the Calvary Assembly of God, Inglewood, CA). The hotel was eventually demolished, and at this revision, is a parking lot.

The Nanjing Tai Dong Seminary choir that provided FEBC with music for its broadcasts. The director David K. Shao (Shao Kuang) [See #408 and #151]] is in the rear (glasses). This photo appears in the April 1948 "Broadcaster" publication which includes a summary of CCBS activities in China. By the end of 1947 FEBC had 6 hours of broadcasts on XGOA, the government station, with local broadcasts in Shanghai and Nanking (Nanjing). We had just been granted time also on two SW frequencies. "XGOA" was the "Central Broadcasting Station." There was also an FEBC-sponsored broadcast on a "Ginling" station in Nanjing (XLAW), produced in cooperation with the Lutheran Mission, China Inland Mission (Today OMF), and InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. FEBC was called CCBS, Chinese Christian Broadcasting System. Recording equipment provided by CIM, but mainly used by FEBC. The chorus in the photo was associated with the Tai-Tung [Tai Dong]Theological Seminary. Back of photo has a partially obliterated description:
"CCBS Ch[orus?]....
XLA....
Center left......ow-kwan
All...are co[mmitted?]
Christians. " The "ow-kwan" is undoubtedly referring to David K. Shao (Shao-Kuang), the choir's director who appears, in fact, center left. (See also #408). "XLA-" is undoubtedly XLAW. The actual schedules were published in a 1948 calendar (#890).

QSL cards from XGOA and its companion XORA.. We obtained these on a DXer website. They are from 1947, the very time FEBC was broadcasting on "two SW freqs," and, locally in Shanghai and Nanking. By combining information in the January, 1948 "Broadcaster" brochure, along with information found in a calendar giveaway (#407, 890-1) we have been able to reconstruct most of the schedule (see image 890). According to the "Broadcaster" FEBC began on these SW frequencies on October 19, 1947.

The Veidmarks The Arvid Veidmarks were the first missionaries to join FEBC. Their job was to prepare the 12.5 acre site at Karuhatan (Valenzuela) about 2 miles north of the city limits of Manila. The tool of choice was this "JeepDozer" that Arvid used to clear the site in readiness for the construction of housing. The Veidmarks at first lived in U.S. Army housing, before moving to Karuhatan in May of 1947. The jeep was purchased in California (where the photo was taken prior to departure.
