From rec.radio.shortwave:

Robert Kipp, the DXer that helped get Radio St. Helena back on
shortwave, mentioned that 2007 Radio St. Helena Day QSLs are on the
way to 110 DXers around the world (26 are going to Japan) in this
first batch. ?More will follow soon.

I've often thought of donating the Gernade to them when I finish with the pirate thing. That would give the dx'er's fits.

You're finally giving up the pirate thing? It's good to see a man who knows how to own up to his age.

For a small fee, I'd take that Grenade off of your hands.

Shouldn't be out calculating the time?

If you're not going to use that astrolabe I sent you why should I trust you with anything else?

I logged 'em and sent off my request. The post office clerks had fits trying to figure out how to determine the correct postage.

"You want to send this where?"
"Where is it?"
"What is it near?"
"Is that St. or Saint?"

Took three clerks to find the location in their USPS computer and two clerks to go find the IRC's.

I may not be rewarded with a QSL, but I sure had a chuckle going that morning.
