Radio Free Sarawak

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.
