Naw, we drink that for breakfast with our grits.
The Wild Turkey we drink after lunch.
When we want to quit, we put it in the freezer for a few hours...
and call it Cold Turkey.....

Two greenstamps' worth of IRCs

M. Schiefelbein
 

I've found a source for the new ones that I've been using for the past couple of months. The Providence, RI post office runs an Internet sales window for collectors and they recently started carrying them.

http://www.uspsdistricts.com/provdist/phphhome.htm

Shipping is usually fast (Priority Mail) and free(!).

Just make sure you specify you want them stamped for use! I received one batch unstamped and had to take them in locally to be canceled. Since they don't even carry them around here and none of the clerks had ever seen one, that caused all kinds of hilarity trying to explain what I needed.

W4KRN Sorry

I saw you Karen for a moment but suddenly I have Television noise at S9+20 (and its not mine its off).

I couldn't hear anymore so I didn't even try to call.

Hope it settles down soon.

Re: IRC's my two greenstamps worth

Steve W3HF
 

I was thinking about this...

The only thing I can think of is that some countries interpret literally the statement that an IRC is valid for "the minimum postage for an international airmail letter." Some countries (including the US) have different rates to different countries. They might restrict an IRC to the lowest rate, though I'm not sure why they'd make a distinction on the IRC's issuing country.

It would be as if the US were to only redeem an IRC for the 75-cent cost to mail to Canada (or 79 cents to Mexico) instead of the 98 cents for all other countries.

I've gone even farther than Darin--I've purchased IRCs on the secondary market (from big-time QSL managers) and sent them everywhere, and never had a problem.

How would country X know that you're using an IRC for "US" postage. The way they're supposed to work is that you cash them in for stamps equivalent to international postage.

If you then stick those stamps on a letter to the USA, how would they know?

Personally, I regularly send IRCs out that I have received from
other people as return postage on cards I send direct. Nobody has
ever mentioned to me that the IRC was rejected because it was, say, a Great Britain IRC and they were sending a card to me in Canada.

Has anyone actually had this third-country IRC rejection happen to them personally, or is it just an internet rumour?

Nice link Mike.

JM7OLW was my first JA contact on PSK some years back. I had just hooked up the interface and found his signal blasting into NM early in the morning on 20 meters. I always wondered what sort of skyhook was behind that signal.

I am also hungry for some of the imoni he pictures on his site... think I'll go get lunch.

Now these are towers !!!

Mike Flowers
 

Gang,

I've been working Suke, JM7OLW, for some years now on PSK31. He always has
a big signal into California from Japan, and I've always known he had a big
tower, but I really didn't know how big until I visited his website:

http://www.geocities.jp/jm7olw_suke/index.html
On the left hand side of the page, click on the *'Tower'* link to see the
photos of the construction of his KT35SR tower.

Then, return to his Home page and follow the *'Interests1'* link, then
the *'KT13N
Tower'* link.

It's a very impressive photo story ...
