Mike, NØODK, hosted a round table discussion on “chasing the QSL” – a necessary evil if you’re going to confirm the contact for an award or simply enjoy getting cards. Like everything else, the cost of mailing direct keeps going up. LoTW has become a popular way to confirm QSO’s if your not interested in getting a QSL. LoTW is not free, but the cost is a fraction of going direct.
Dave, KØIEA, showed the members a QSL from KP2A/KP1, Navassa, that he just received for a QSO dating back 27 years to 1982. He went direct after receiving a tip on the manager from KØKG.
DOOR PRIZE WINNERS:
KFØQR - $20, KØIEA - $20, Club Treasury - $37
@ 7:20 pm
Jim Junkert, KØJUH
