It pays to be persistent. I worked Ron, KB8NOD, quite a while ago, and sent him a QSL card back then. I recently worked him again and mentioned that I never got a card in return. Well, he said that he’d run out of cards, or something like that. I pushed a little, noting that I had quite a collection now of QSL cards from stations whose callsigns spell words, and really would like to get his because I didn’t have any NODs yet. He said he would check again, to see if he had some squirreled away somewhere.
I got this in the mail yesterday. :) He writes, “This is my last one….I hope you like it.” I really do like it. I think hand-drawn cards like this have a lot of character.
