A very nice surprise.

 

USS North Carolina 

It was a very nice surprise to get this QSL card in the mail the other week. It is a picture of the USS North Caroline museum battleship. The radio room on this ship was used during the North Carolina QSO party last year. The operators from the Azalea coast amateur radio club using the original WWII radio room equipment. 

This weekend is both the North and South Carolina QSO parties and my plans are to take part in both contests. It's a nice way to spend a bit of the weekend with the South Carolina QSO party on Saturday and the North Carolina QSO party on Sunday.
