News: 2012-12-26. Paper QSL cards and DXCC

We hope you had great, calm, peaceful Christmas. We had no time to publish any news as we were very busy with other things.

We would like to inform you  that we have prepared two projects of QSL cards. It was possible thanks to Radek SP5ADX from CoolQSL, who worked hard to prepare QSL designs despite of the Christmas time. So just before the New Year paper QSL cards will be ready and we will start to send them at the begining of 2013.  So expect your paper QSL card in January if you have already requested a QSL.

What more… It is our pleasure to inform that 5T0SP DXpedition received positive acceptance of the ARRL DXCC Desk so contacs with 5T0SP are valid for DXCC Awards. We would like to thank ARRL DXCC Staff for a quick review of the 5T0SP license and other papers.

We wish all DXers a wealthy and healthy New Year 2013. Have a lot of peace and friendship around you. Have a lot of time for DXing and good propagation in 2013. We do hope to meet you again from another place, another DXCC entity.
