4KZ QSL Arrives - Feels Just Like the Old Days!
« on: January 09, 2018, 1053 UTC »
My 4KZ QSL arrives and the station has gone to quite some effort to produce something special! Embossed QSL, sticker, personal note, and envelope with seal sticker on the back! Reminded me of the old days when the Latin stations used to send lots of stuff and personalise it. Images at the link below.

A very nice QSL!  I tried for 4KZ on 5055 this morning, but not even a carrier. Are they on 24/7 or with a limited schedule?

Reportedly to be operating 0500 to 2300 UTC, Chris. i.e. 3pm to 9am local time there.
