New Orleans to the Middle East is a long way, even for shortwave.

Posted: 01 Oct 2006

Robert Mawire, "a preacher at Arlington (Texas) based Good News World Outreach, plans to broadcast a Christian message to the Middle East over WRNO, a (New Orleans based) shortwave radio station. He and his associate Dean Spurlock hope to convert Muslims by transmitting the gospel, music and Christian conversion stories, all in Arabic." Fort Worth Star-Telegram, 28 September 2006. "Many in the Middle East still haven't forgotten the Crusades, and that was 1,000 years ago. They will see this as nothing more than another assault on their religion." Post to Star-Telegram blog, 28 September 2006.
