QSLs from Japan’s Overseas Service – Radio Japan/NHK World Radio Japan.

Radio Japan has issued attractive QSL cards over the years.  The earliest QSL shown here is from 1969. At that time, Radio Japan broadcast from only one site, Yamata, Japan. Since then, they have broadcast from over 20 different sites, mostly on lease agreements. In 1979 and the early 1980’s, I served as an official monitor for Radio Japan.

Sometime in the 1990’s, NHK changed the name of its overseas service from Radio Japan to NHK World Radio Japan.  It is still the same station but with a slightly different name.

As of this writing, there are 52 different QSL issues for 17 different transmitter sites in my collection. I am sure more will be added in the future.
