W4BUD Latest QSL in My Collection

W4BUD QSLThis card from Sam, W4BUD, is the latest to be added to my collection of QSLs from stations whose call signs spell words. I was making a rare appearance in the phone band, and had just finished a QSO when Sam broke in, asking for a signal report.

Sam writes, “My call was issued to me in 1953, so it is not a ‘vanity call.’ W4BUD was originally issued in the 1930s to someone who became a Silent Key, and I was lucky enough to have it re-issued to me.”
