|Clare Rewcastle and Peter John Jaban|
An eQSL card from Radio Free Sarawak arrived in the email today, 14 December 2011. This unexpected verification from RFS was needless to say a VERY pleasant surprise. I am in seventh heaven!!! To view this eQSL card and details of the broadcast, time and frequency, please refer to my 3 October 2011 blog entry.
For those mot familiar with Radio Free Sarawak, it is a clandestine station that broadcasts Sarawakian music and political commentary from a Malaysian opposition party to the indegenious people of Sarawak, East Malaysia. The programming is produced in a London-based studio by award-winning British journalist, Clare Rewcastle Brown, who was born and raised in Sarawak. A former Radio Television Malaysia (RTM) announcer from Sarawak,Peter John Jaban, the granson of a Dayak headhunter and aka Papa John, is the station's DJ. Transmission originates purportedly from a relay station in Pulau.
