Radio Free Asia post schedule and QSLs on Facebook

A few months ago, Radio Free Asia (RFA) started a new social network service on Facebook where DXers, and others, can access our latest broadcast schedules, frequency data, and information about our current, and past, QSL cards. We encourage everyone with a Facebook account to join us online at RFA QSL.
RFA encourages listeners to submit reception reports. Reception reports are valuable 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. If you have a smart phone, feel free to use this QR tag to access the automated reception report system and submit your reception reports to the web site. Many smartphones already come with a QR code reader, but if you need a code scanner/reader, try this source: .

You also have the option of using the following Microsoft Tag from your smartphone. The free mobile app for your smartphone is available at .

Reception reports are also accepted by email at , and for anyone without Internet access, reception reports can be mailed to:

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 .
Upon request, RFA will also send a copy of the current broadcast schedule and a station sticker.
