Radio Free Asia Releases Year of the Monkey QSL January 2016

Radio Free Asia (RFA) announces the release of our Year of the Monkey QSL. The Year of the Monkey begins February 8, 2016 and ends January 27, 2017. The design is used with permission from the United Nations Postal Administration (UNPA). The sheet is made of ten $ 1.20 USD stamps with the UN emblem as a standard international first class postage stamp. Those born in a monkey year are said to be optimistic, adventurous, humorous, forthright and to-the-point, and intelligent. Monkeys have strong personalities and are witty, but also mischievous, clever and curious about the world around them. The Chinese New Year is celebrated in many countries around the world. This is RFA’s 60th QSL and is used to confirm all valid RFA reception reports from January-April 2016.
