Surfin’: 39 Years to QSL
One thing leads to another on the Internet and the proof is in the pudding. Here’s the pudding.
Rich Holock, KY6R, e-mailed me a little while ago about an interesting story he had written. But at the time, I was busy waiting for The League to make up its mind about the future of Surfin', so I was distracted and did not pay much attention to KY6R's missive.
I just received a follow-up e-mail from Rich pointing out that his article has been picked up and posted on another website. Now that the smoke has cleared and the dust has settled concerning Surfin', I got my dupa in gear and checked out his article.
It tells Rich's story about working the Canal Zone back in 1974 and finally receiving a QSL for the contact nearly 40 years later. It is a great story and I highly recommend it.
I also recommend perusing DxCoffee, the website that posted Rich's article. It is a very cool website, "expressly for DXers" edited chiefly by Pasquale La Gamba, IZ8IYX, K8IYX. It is very good looking and well-organized containing lots of interesting and useful information for both the DXer and the non-DXer alike.
Until next time, keep on surfin'!
