H.M. King Bhumipon Adunyadet using radio equipment, with on the left the logo of the Amphon Sathaan (fig.) Radio Station, i.e. a transmission tower in a shape reminiscent of the royal crown and with the Thai letters O. S. (อ. ส.) interwoven with each others in the centre of the tower. It is a reference to his Majesty's role in the establishment of the Amphon Sathaan Radio Station at Chitralada Palace in Dusit, which still broadcasts regularly from the above location on FM 104.0 MHz, under the name Or. Sor. Sathaanih Witthayu or Amphon Sathaan Radio Station. The letters O. S. (อ. ส.) are the initials of Amphon Sathaan (อัมพรสถาน), from where the first broadcast was made in 1952. In the background is the silhouette of the rooftops of Wat Phra Kaew (fig.), and in the bottom left corner the logo of the National Communications Day, i.e. a stylized messenger pigeon.
