Hi Guys: 

I am currently on a mission to find some DXers out there who would have received QSL's from the following 2 Pirate Stations from the 1990-1991 era……

ROCKABILLY RADIO - with DJ Rocky Rhino (less than 10 QSL's Issued). George Zeller says in his Books that Rockabilly Radio may have been one of the First Pirates to extensively use SSB for their Transmissions???

BWR - BIG WEENIE RADIO (Only 2-3 QSLs Issued)

If you are one of the lucky few to have received QSLs from these Stations…..I would be most interested in receiving a Copy of that QSL for my Archives!!! Please contact me at …..

circledots@rogers.com 

If you can send along a Scan of the QSL's…that would be most appreciated!!

Thanks!!

Rocky, I remember hearing the station in March of 1990 and I remember getting a QSL from you.  But I can't find the QSL (or a lot of other ones). 

Fortunately, I did locate my special Radio Nederland QSL from 1978 for a report of Glenn Hauser's DX report that used to appear on the DX Juke Box program (which features a picture of His Eminence).  No doubt I probably was listening on 6165 kHz via Bonaire.

Big Weenie Radio rings no bells here.

I have the QSL's from that time period as well as a letter from you. I do not have a scanner, but can send you the whole batch via snail mail if you wish to scan them. RCCI (Radio Comedy Club International) Send reply via my YAHOO address.  ... Steve

BTW.... I plan on getting a cheap flatbed scanner, and file all of the QSL's received over the years. There are a few I have, not posted to HF underground. (pretty obscure ;D)
