A 2010 Audio Shortwave Recording Of Radio Taiwan International

My Shortwave radio reception report that I sent to Radio Taiwan International back in 2010.  In return they sent me trinkets from Taiwan.  I got some cool stuff from Taiwan.  Also included is an audio recording of the shortwave reception report.  Note that I’m not sure if this reception report pertains to the recording.  Report and recording are from August 2010.
