 Jarosław Jędrzejczak, Poland, 1st place.

I have a higher technical education.
My hobby is radio and everything related to it. I’m especially interested in Polish and Polish-speaking radio stations all over the world.
I’ve been listening to Radio Belarus since October 2006. Now I listen to you through the Internet.
I like your projects “Firsthand” and “Vernisage”. I like to travel and maybe this is why I like programs about your country “Welcome to Belarus”, “Travel Guide”, “Palette of Belarus” and “Belarusian Way”.

 

 Christian Ghibaudo, France, 2nd place.

- my profession: purchasing manager in a nursing home.
- I listen Radio Belarus in English since 10 years, and in French since 2011.
- My favorite program is Belarus de A à Z in French language.
- I wish plenty listeners to Radio Belarus, and hope that the French programmes will be broadcast daily on shortwaves, like now on Internet.


                                        Richard Chen, Trinidad and Tobago, 2nd place.

I am a State employee working in a large Government Ministry and my job is in the
internal auditing field.
 
I have been listening to Radio Belarus for the past year over the internet with excellent streaming reception as a result of the Contest.As a long time shortwave listener of over 20 years I believe I have heard  Radio Minsk and have written to you.
 
My favourite programmes are Postcard from Belarus, In the depth of the country, Letters to Editor, The Cradle, Best songs of "Slavonic Bazaar in Vitebsk", News from Belarus.
 
I wish Radio Belarus all the best as it seeks to promote international friendship and co-operation thru its programming; it is bringing Belarus to peoples  far and wide over the internet on radio, tv and shortwave.Personally I have learnt a lot about Belarus and I hope that Radio Belarus will continue to go from strength to strength in this new century.

I recently learned my surname is not Polish, but Belarusian. I heard you on shortwave in the past and am so happy to listen online in English. We hear nothing about Belarus here in the US so I am so glad to learn about your country. Keep on broadcasting in English. I also joined the Hoererklub on Facebook as I can understand German. If you have information or a station pennant, I will very much appreciate it.
