Radio Free Asia's Broadcast Open Development Exchange Initiative, this site, was launched to serve as an open platform to freely exchange information and technical development for the professional broadcast community.
RFA's Automated QSL pages where RFA listeners can file broadcast reception reports on-line. These reception reports are valuable to RFA in that they assist in evaluating transmission signal strength and quality. Radio Stations usually reply by mailing a "QSL Card". The QSL Card acknowledges the receipt of the report and confirms the details of the transmission for the listener.
RFA's CAD 3-D Project serves as a free exchange clearinghouse for 3-D CAD drawings and material/texture bitmaps. This 3D Project also includes detailed project standards information for file type, and the file/layer naming conventions. The 3D CAD files were taken from RFA's in-house technical drawings of its many facilities. A few of the CAD files were also uploaded to the site by users who wish to share their 3D CAD drawings through the 3D Project.
Music recorded by RFA can be found in TAM or Traditional Asian Music Project. The TAM Project exists to preserve and share the cultural ideals and values articulated through the traditional music of the diverse Asian communities of our broadcast audience. The music on this site is part of a growing collection from the Radio Free Asia Music Library. During the course of the years at Radio Free Asia traditional folk musicians have come to our studio facilities to perform at the request of the language services. These session recordings are offered for download in order to allow others to enjoy and appreciate traditional music that is unique to Asia.
