Gordon - G3USR Operating /P in Scotland*** 4 to 8 June 2008, Yell Island,Shetland, EU-012 Locator - IP92JMScotland
Thanks very much for all the QSOs from Yell Island in the Shetlands, it was a real pleasure to work you!
QSLs have been printed and all directs mailed with all other cards sent via the bureau. If you would like to receive a card direct please see my G3USR QRZ.com entry for the requested process.
The above QSL was from my 2006 St Kilda DXpedition with the National Trust for Scotland to Hirta Island. The Shetland card is a similar style and I hope that you find it equally attractive. Or more!
I hope to meet you again on the air on my further travels in the future from home in England (G3USR), Montserrat (VP2MSR) or again as GM3USR/P from my original home country of Scotland.
73 & great DX! Gordon
