Radio Free Asia commemorates Year of the Pig with new QSL

Thursday 31 January, 2019


With the Chinese New Year just around the corner, Radio Free Asia (RFA) launched its 2019 Year of the Pig QSL.

QSL is actually shorthand for "confirmation of contact" in amateur radio, brought over from morse code. A QSL card is a written confirmation of either a two-way radiocommunication between two amateur radio stations or a one-way reception of a signal from an AM radio, FM radio or shortwave broadcasting station. It can also confirm the reception of a two-way radiocommunication by a third-party listener.

This is RFA's 69th QSL design and is used to confirm all valid RFA reception reports from January – April 2019.

Created by Congress in 1994 and incorporated in 1996, RFA broadcasts in Burmese, Cantonese, Khmer, Korean to North Korea, Lao, Mandarin (including the Wu dialect), Vietnamese, Tibetan (Uke, Amdo, and Kham), and Uyghur.

RFA broadcasts only in local languages and dialects, and most of its broadcasts comprise news of specific local interest.  

RFA welcomes all reception report submissions at (follow the QSL REPORTS link) not only from DX'ers, but also from its general listening audience.
