On Monday I received a package of 49 QSL cards from the W2 incoming bureau handled by the NJDXA. There was actually 54 cards in the package but 1 was for the wrong call (and they aren’t listed on QRZ) and 4 more were multiple cards from the same call sign. I went through Ham Radio Deluxe and checked each of them of which maybe 5 or 6 were for contacts I had not sent out a QSL card, so I filled out an outgoing QSL card to send back.
Some of the more notable cards received were:
4U1UN – United Nations in NY. Not a real hard one for me since they are less then 20 miles away, but I wanted the card which comes from HB9
Received a batch from Madeira Island with a real nice card from CQ9U which was an IOTA DXpedition back in July 2008
OL9HQ – representing the 2009 Czech IARU HF Championship team
OM8A – showing a picture of a large antenna farm for their contest group. I count 10 towers with many having stacked arrays.
PY2SEX – The picture is just stellar!
TF3Y – The front of the card has many pictures showing from 1975 on showing the operator as he grew up in front of the radio.
I really enjoy looking at the cards that come in and continue to send out many regardless of LoTW being free and giving me the quickest confirmation for a new DXCC.
73 & good DX,
