This is the official page of International Radio Listeners' Friendship & Fraternity Club (IRLFFC) written and maintained by MITUL KANSAL.

The club will give the chance to become friends with listeners and Dxers in other countries. The club will serve as a platform to take part in discussions, dialogue, and exchange opinions with people in various parts of the world. For a while it was like a dream but now it is a reality. By joining together we can do a lot for our planet. For example, help to ensure peace on Earth and save the environment. The main task of our club is to get acquainted with listeners in other countries. I think in a country where you have friends there is no room for enemy. And lastly very important, the members will established and promote friendship, fraternity and mutual understanding among them and it will be a first step to maintain peace on our Earth i.e. our common home.

Results of RRI contest “My Cultural Bucharest – from Radio Orchestras to Contemporary Art”

Sad news: RRI doesn't choose me as a winner for the Grand Prize in their latest contest because I am unmarried. They wanted to choose a couple or 2 persons from a single family. I said no when they asked me whether I can come to Bucharest with my family member or spouse or not? See what they wrote to me 
"Dear friend,

Thank you for being so prompt with your answer. As you may know from the contest announcement, the Grand Prize is a 7-night stay for two and the sponsor offers a double room at Hotel Royal in Bucharest. Therefore, please let us know if you could come accompanied by your spouse, a family member or friend.

We remind you that the other person who will accompany you will have to cover his or her travel expenses to Bucharest and back, and, if necessary, the cost of the visa for Romania.

Looking forward to your confirmation.
Best regards,
Lacramioara Simion"

What do you think about their policy of choosing winners?? I am going to write them a letter.
Anyways here are the results of the contest. I congratulate to all the winners.

Two different RMRC QSLs


Two different QSLs from RMRC. There are subtle differences, including the background blue colour, yellow letter reflections, and the different positioning of the image and data. 



Rhein Main Radio Club


Just got this QSL from RMRC. This is a common QSL card. They don't write any detail on the card. Not even my name.
QSL card was in doc format attached with a short write up.

"Hello Mitul,
thanks for listening our broadcast
greetings to all members of you DX-Club from Germany
