That's interesting. The CR8 on the card I posted was Diu Island (Portuguese India) off the West coast of India (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Diu_Island). Numerous places say, "There was only one operation from this rare entity. It was Bill Hunton, W6ODD, on August 2nd, 1948. Mr. Hunton only made 55 contacts."
