RFA Year of the Dragon QSL ends Feb 29

a reminder to our readers.....


Radio Free Asia (RFA) announces the release of our 43nd QSL card. This QSL commemorates 2012 as the Year of the Dragon. According to ChineseZodiac.Com, Dragons are characterized as ambitious, risk takers, and as people who gravitate toward challenges. If left on their own and allowed to live by their own rules, Dragons are usually successful. Dragons are also passionate in everything they do and while they frequently help others, Dragons will rarely ask for help. The Year of the Dragon is from January 23, 2012 – February 9, 2013. This QSL card will be used to confirm all valid RFA reception reports for January-February 2012.

RFA’s 43rd QSL card commemorates 2012 as the Year of the Dragon.
