Radio Free Asia, transmitting from Iranawila, Sri Lanka, was logged on 17 January 2014. A Korean language broadcast featuring a Korean music artiste and current event news on North Korea was monitored from 17.05 to 17.45 UTC (broadcast time 17.00 to 19.00 UTC). Reception on 9.720 kHz was (SINPO) 55545 -- excellent reception on all accounts, except for minor and occasional fading.Radio Free Asia reportedly will issue a special panda mascot QSL card for the Sochi Olympics. Valid reception reports from 1 January till 31 March 2014 will be confirmed with this verification card.
Hopefully the reception report of the above transmission, which was emailed a few days later, will be honored with this unique QSL from RFA. Indeed, I did receive the Sochi Olympics QSL card on 6 February 2014.
