In 1981 we experimented with live special editions of Media Network directed to South Asia. There was a lot of mail coming in from India and Sri Lanka (mainly postcards) which we couldn't handle in the regular show. It was always a balance too - we were talking about technology that was not readily available in South Asia. But the feedback we got was that was an excellent reason to listen. This programme is 34 years old - from an era when phone calls were very expensive and mail sometimes took up to 3 months to arrive in Hilversum.

I was in Sri Lanka during this time and I started regular listening to MN in 1983. So, this is a new program for me. After 35 years, still it is interesting to listen. After an interval, I heard Victor. He has given a very detailed report on clandestine and official radio stations. It was also interesting to know there were lady DXers those days. I was a regular listener of RMI's DX program on MW with excellent reception. After listening to the DX essay from India, I can see how the situation has changed in India now.
