[caption id="attachment_452" align="alignleft" width="300"] QSL from NMN[/caption]
I checked the mail, yesterday, and was surprised to see a whole box
full! Not much in the way of junk mail but I did receive two
radio-related mailings. First was an envelope from "Commanding Officer,
U.S. Coast Guard CAMSLANT..." and the second was from "Radio Romania".
I couldn't imagine why I would be receiving something from
CAMSLANT but when I saw the
QSL card inside I remembered sending them a signal report after seeing
such a request on a NAVTEX broadcast. I wasn't really expecting a QSL
from NMN but it's always great to receive one!
Likewise, I sent Radio Romania a letter thanking
them for their continued broadcasts on the shortwave bands and commented
on a program I had heard. They sent me back a nice QSL, broadcast
schedule, calendar, sticker, and a letter. I always enjoy hearing
broadcasts from Europe as they seem to take great pride in their
transmissions. It's unfortunate that two of my favorite stations, Radio
Ukraine International and Radio Bulgaria, are now both off the air.
