Radio Free Asia (RFA) announces the release of our 16th anniversary QSL card. RFA’s first broadcast was in Mandarin on September 29, 1996 at 2100 UTC. Acting as a substitute for indigenous free media, RFA concentrates its coverage on events occurring in and/or affecting the countries to which it broadcasts. Those countries are: Burma, Cambodia, Laos, North Korea, Peoples Republic of China, and Vietnam. The design was chosen the favorite over four others posted on our Facebook page, RFA QSL. The microphone and flag is typical of what our broadcasters use in our Washington DC studios. This card will be used to confirm all valid reception reports from September 1 – December 31, 2012.

RFA’s 16th Anniversary QSL card.

Friday, August 24, 2012


Radio Free Asia announces its 47th QSL card to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Japan Short Wave Club (JSWC). This special QSL is scheduled for distribution for all confirmed Radio Free Asia reception reports dated August 25-26, 2012. The release of this special QSL card also coincides with Tokyo HAM Fair 2012. This updated RFA Olympic pin QSL includes artwork from JSWC member, Mr. Kim-Yeong IL, who was a professional painter and designed many JSWC QSL cards before passing earlier this year.

RFA is a private, nonprofit corporation that broadcasts news and information to listeners in Asian countries where full, accurate, and timely news reports are unavailable. Created by Congress in 1994 and incorporated in 1996, RFA currently broadcasts in Burmese, Cantonese, Khmer, Korean to North Korea, Lao, Mandarin, the Wu dialect, Vietnamese, Tibetan (Uke, Amdo, and Kham), and Uyghur. RFA strives for accuracy, balance, and fairness in its editorial content. As a ‘surrogate’ broadcaster, RFA provides news and commentary specific to each of its target countries, acting as the free press these countries lack. RFA broadcasts only in local languages and dialects, and most of its broadcasts comprise news of specific local interest. More information about Radio Free Asia, including our current broadcast frequency schedule, is available at

RFA encourages listeners to submit reception reports. Reception reports are valuable to RFA as they help us evaluate the signal strength and quality of our transmissions. RFA confirms all accurate reception reports by mailing a QSL card to the listener. RFA welcomes all reception report submissions at (follow the QSL REPORTS link) not only from DX’ers, but also from its general listening audience.

Reception reports are also accepted by email at qsl (at) rfa (dot) org, and for anyone without Internet access, reception reports can be mailed to:
