At the meeting, a congratulatory message from the WPK Central Committee to the workers, technicians and officials of the station was read out by Jon Hyon Chol.

The WPK Central Committee said in the message that the 70-year history of the station, which started its operation with the laying of transmission lines for the wartime munitions production in May Juche 41 (1952) when the Fatherland Liberation War was at its height, is shining with the heroic life and undying feats of its workers, technicians and officials who have taken the lead in the struggle to carry into practice the Party's plan for building a thriving nation.

The WPK Central Committee highly praised the workers, technicians and officials of the station who have contributed to the country's prosperity and the promotion of people's wellbeing with boundless loyalty to the revolution and devoted service, working hard at the most challenging and difficult posts for life, regardless of whether they are known or not and recognized or not.
