I can’t help but compare this reply to last Saturday’s reply from Lyngby Radio, Denmark. Lyngby Radio returned their postcard…
Bagsvaerd Mollevej 3
2800 Kgs. Lyngby
They used the mint stamps and address label that I supplied, and returned my report, souvenir postcard and blank envelope. Lyngby Radio is unfortunately no longer friendly to DXers, but at least had the courtesy to respond rather than ignoring my correspondence.
Full-data eQSL received in 19 days after sending an e-mail to floro.radio[at]telenor.com. A week after sending my original report, I obtained a few units of mint Norway postage stamps and submitted an airmail report. Perhaps I will receive an airmail response also?
