Buro status of ANY station can be checked any time at
http://3905ccn.hamshackonline.net/bureau/bureau.php. We are getting
really higgh numbers of cards coming that are not GIB again. This one is
an easy one to prevent.
With Phil AC8UW now bringing the club call NO8I to the net a quick note.
Ø = 0 not O
8 and B are not interchangeable
The call is a 2 by 1 November Oscar Eight India. There were multiple
cards today for NØ8I, NØBI, and other variants. I know there are still
some who refuse to use NetLogger, but it really does cut down on these
errors when trying to read your own notes. These cards are being returned
as they do not have the correct call on them and will do Phil no good
trying to get a few awards for the club.
Not trying to be a hard @$$ here, but these are relatively simple things
that folks can do to in crease the accuracy of their QSLing and save
postage and time (theirs and ours).
Lastly, I saw one tonight that really made me scratch my head. If you
work someone, it would probably be greatly appreciated by the station you
worked if you sent the card in a timely manner (most of us try to get it
within a couple weeks at the most). Sure we all slip occasionally (stuff
happens, life gets in the way) but I got cards for someone who passed away
2 years ago for contacts that were 4 and 5 years old. I am good at sending
out mail, but there isn't any mail forwarding to the Pearly Gates.
