The full story of this beautiful photograph of the 1950's era, has yet to be researched. Mrs. Robert (Eleanor) Bowman, received this photograph as an Easter greeting from Mrs. Maria V. Maypa in April of 1950. It shows the family and home in Calangcung, Makato, Capiz, Panay (Island). The photo was taken on March 30. The assumption is that Mrs. Maypa was a listener to FEBC, and who visited Mrs. Bowman on a trip to FEBC-Manila.

The historic Pan American Boeing Stratocruiser "Clipper America" taxis to the ramp at Manila International Airport. The photo is from the collection of an FEBC visitor named "Jesse" who toured Asia and who arrived in Manila on this aircraft in about 1951. The Boeing 377 was the first step up from the PanAM "flying boats" that had been traversing the Pacific. FEBC personnel utilized this aircraft, in the mid 1950's as the first break from sea travel. See also #403 and #469.

Travelers arriving on a Pan Am 377 "Stratocruiser" in 1951 (est.) must disembark and walk across the tarmac in the bad weather at Manila International Airport. The photo is taken of the arrival of a visitor to FEBC named "Jesse." It is not known if "Jesse" is any of the passengers walking hastily along in the rain. The flag that waves on the right indicates "G&P Company."

This photo was taken by a person named "Jesse" visiting FEBC in the very early 1950's He was apparently impressed by the flags of the U.S. and Philippines flying side by side at CRCM, Manila. FEBC's initial effort was largely American, even though the intent was from the beginning to make the operations ultimately indigenous. The Philippines was part of the American Commonwealth from 1898 to 1946. FEBC began its work in the Philippines in 1947. In the background is the directional short wave antenna for the regional Philippines.

Here compound woodworker/carpenter Enyong del Rosario helps to push a steel leg into position. Sadly, a professional rigger hired to work on the project, was the only fatality, when crushed by a swinging boom.

The "SAVE" project was begun in 1995 under the name of Manila Short Wave Project (MSWP). Its goal was to install four 100kw short wave transmitters and steerable curtain antennas. Additional property adjoining the existing Bocaue site was purchased for the antennas. The ground breaking ceremony included the piling up of symbolic "stones of dedication" by staff. Upon completion of the project the stones were cemented together into a permanent pyramid of remembrance of God's faithfulness in providing for the US$8.5 million project. See #602 for plaque contents.

Aerial view of KGEI, Redwood City, California in July of 1968. KGEI, purchased by FEBC in 1960, and closed in 1995, was located 3 miles east of Bayshore Highway (101) near Belmont, and five miles south of San Francisco airport on the edge of the Bay. KGEI shared some 50 acres with local NBC station KNBR, whose AM towers are seen in the upper right near the HAZard signs. Three 125 foot towers and barely visible poles on the right support the three short wave arrays. KGEI’s building is the smaller building on the left. Also barely visible on the lower right is a small guard shack, occupied by Marines during WWII. .45 caliber bullets can still be dug out of the dikes. KGEI was widely listened to in Asia during the war. By 2005, the entire Redwood Peninsula was fully developed up to the front gate of the radio stations.
