Radio Free Asia (RFA) announces its latest QSL card which is the third its
Chinese Lunar New Year series. According to the Chinese astrology calendar,
2009 is the Year of the Ox. People born in ox years are considered kind and
caring, logical, positive, to have a great deal of common sense and with
their feet firmly planted on the ground. They are also considered to be hard
workers in order to provide comfort and security for their families while
also highly intelligent and strong minded. While this year's design is based
on the one using in our 2007 Lunar New Year card, this marks the first
design by RFA's Valerie Johnson who handles the majority of RFA's reception
reports and the sending of RFA's QSL cards. The card will be used to confirm
all valid reception reports from February 1 - April 30, 2009.

Radio Free Asia 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 mentioned on the front of the QSL card, 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.
