Barry,
I saw your sig over here in CT last evening but you faded before I got my chance.
I would definitely take the card if we QSO because of the unusual callsign.
I'll keep looking for ya.  I have until the end of the year so who knows?

So far I've collected five special Canadian calls and always looking for more.

I was thinking that very thing when I tossed a bunch of cards in my box the other day...looked at them once and who ever cleans my shack when I become a silent key will just toss them in the trash without a second thought..same with all those awards that are stuck in a folder

I found a book at the bookstore a while back where a hams's son took all his dad's qsls and made a memoir of his dad's ham activities using the cards as story points..its titled "Hello World!, a life of ham radio"..a very interesting and nostalgic read..
