R0FA Sakhalin Island QSL Card

Got my verification QSL card from (R0FA) Sakhalin Island today! Should you take the time to read a few entries back; this island is shared by both Japan and Russia. I was able to work him with 3 watts and an indoor random wire antenna. This station was just above the mainland of Japan and a little East of China. When I spotted him on the cluster, he realized that I was "QRP" and stopped the "pile up" to say a special "hello".  You won't find many willing to do this.....my reward for a great contact!

Nice Card: 



I've been out of town for a few days and turned the radio on immediately to see if anything was on the air. I worked OK1PL for the third time on 30 meters.

Hello Bas,

It was very nice of him to send this by "direct mail". I'll have my return card to him the same way. This one will always have great memories for me.
