Back on October 23rd (a Sunday afternoon ) while I was sitting in the shack blogging about the fun I had out at the Long Island Lock station with Jose VA3PCJ on the Saturday, I managed a contact with W9W who was operating from US Island WI048R in Wisconsin.
Well today in the mail came a full color QSL card from them. This was unexpected… The postage on the card was almost a buck so its safe to say that for a two sided color QSL card it would cost at least a dollar a card so this group spent an average of a $1.50 to send out QSLs to all contacts. This is no mean feat… In the past I have sent out QSLs out via the buro for special event stations and mini DXPeditions but to swallow the postage for every contact could cost them as much as the radio cost they made the contacts with…
Like I said… A class act
Thanks to the crew of W9W which consisted of W9MZ, KC9MRV, KC9KOO, KC9KOP, KB9TPG, KC9NHQ, KC9LBO, W9JR and KC9UJM
