Morgen doe ik mee aan de Friese 11 steden contest op 80m. Een leuke contest met als
bijzonderheid dat de QTH wordt uitgewisseld en de 11 steden van de beroemde schaatstocht + kluunplaats Bartlehiem multipliers zijn. Een goede uitleg vind men HIER.
A few posts ago I mentioned I was out of QSLs en it was time to design a new one. So I had a good idea and I took off with my camera. It took a lot of time as I had to wait for the right weather and time because the windmills had to be in the right direction for the angle of my photograph. I had to walk more then 2 km trough farmers land to get in the right position, but well I managed to make about 20 pictures and picked the best out of them. Last time I ordered some QSL cards at ON5UR Max from Belgium, I was very satisfied with his service. But after I send an e-mail I got no response, so I waited and send him a second one after a week. Then I get one small response: Max was very busy, to many ordered QSL so it could take some time. Well I wrote him again after one month but till this day no response at all. So, I decided to look for another printer. PD7BZ recommended LZ3HI but I didn't like his website and he calculates some taxes over the prices. After some searching I get on te website of UX5UO I did like his site a lot more and he even has a Dutch website in service. It is also possible to pay the money via the regional representative. So I send him my wishes and he responded within a day. After 4 days I'm satisfied with the design now. I hope to get the cards soon...
I'll take part in the Frysian 11 cities contest on 80m tomorrow. It is not only a national contest, it is possible for other countries to participate too. You can find a good description in English HERE.
