Indian DX Report Issuing QSLs

Don't forget to listen to the 4th edition of Indian DX Report on AWR Wavescan on SUNDAY, 29th July.
We'll be issuing QSLs for correct reception report sent for this edition of IDXR. We have three designs of QSLs designed by our good friend Partha Sarathi Goswami of Siliguri India based on the photographs of Assam state of India captured by Prithwiraj Purkayastha.
And here is our QSL policy for your kind information:
For sending a printed paper QSL by post we request our listeners in India to send 1 IRC or Mint Indian stamps worth Rs. 25/- (for each QSL) as return postage and all listeners in abroad are requested to send return postage in any form like 2 IRCs or Mint Indian Stamps of the same value along with the reception report for a paper QSL by post. Reception reports without IRCs or Mint Stamps sent via postal mail or email will be awarded eQSLs. 

Send your comments, suggestions & reception reports to: 

C/o. Prithwiraj Purkayastha
JORHAT 785001

Or email your reports to <>

With love from Assam....

Today I have posted nine letters containing reception reports and pasted with beautiful Indian stamps to Radio Rwanda, Radio Kuwait, Holy Tibet, Radyo Philippines, Voice of Korea, IBB Philippines, Radio Africa Network (Eq. Guinea), NHK Radio Japan and AWR Listen to AWR DX Contest.

I did have some old IRCs which are, as per recent updates, invalid. So trying my luck with them as I sent few with some reports as return postage. This is the biggest lot I have ever dispatched in a single go. Now fingers are crossed to hear some good news from the other sides...

Radio Free Asia announces its 46th QSL card scheduled for distribution for all confirmed reception reports dated July-August 2012. This QSL card commemorates the 2012 Summer Olympiad in London, England which will be held July 27 through August 12, 2012. The Games have always brought people from around the world together in peace to respect universal moral principles. The card shows an adaptation of the graphic of Radio Free Asia’s Olympic pin, as created by RFA’s Brian Powell, which was originally used for the 2008 Beijing Olympics. This latest version adds a bearskin which is traditionally worn by the British Foot Guards.

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

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. If you have a smart phone, feel free to use the QR code below to access the automated reception report system and submit your reception reports to the web site.
