Here’s the second in the short bonus series of W8DFL QSL cards… two more to come after this one.
I’ll start off with this one from Sr. Cletus:
I’ve seen cards from priests out in the field, but this is the first and only one I ran into from a nun. Seems she was demoing the radio for a class or something.
How she picked Sr. Mary Cletus, I might never know. I’ve got to say, she does have impeccable penmanship.
This is interesting for two reasons, two slashes. Here’s Ove operating from the Åland Islands which seem to be Finish, but only kinda-sorta. The even more interesting thing is W8DFL/OE2 which means that Vic was operating out of Austria! I know he was out to Switzerland when he was transmitting from the ITU, but I guess he roamed further than that!
I’ll leave this with a shortwave listening card:
Why? I love the complete hand-made nature of this one.
I wonder who Bob is. I wonder how Vic was supposed to send a QSL since I can’t even seem to find the address.
But it’s fascinating to look at.
Even the coastline of the US is in there.
1935. Before WWII.
How things change.
