Radio Free Asia QSL commemorates 25th Annual SWL Fest

Radio Free Asia (RFA) announces the release of 44th QSL card. This QSL commemorates the 25th annual SWL Fest, March 1-3, in Plymouth Meeting, Pennsylvania. The SWL Fest is a premier DX'er event in the USA attracting hundreds of attendees. It is sponsored by the North American Shortwave Association (NASWA) and covers shortwave, mediumwave (AM), scanning, satellite TV, pirate broadcasting and more. This QSL card will be used to confirm all valid RFA reception reports for March 2012. RFA's new QSL card commemorates the 25th annual SWL Fest.

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.
