Good morning Dale,
        I like this idea.  It's a bit over 1,500 (yes, one THOUSAND FIVE
HUNDRED) MILES from my QTH in the western end of the 5th District to the W5
Bureau Hqs. in the eastern side of the 5th District.
        I can load up the family in the Suburban, take a vacation trip to
get my cards, and write it off on my Ham Radio budget.  The beer will be
warm and the pizza will be cold when I get there, but it is the thought
that counts.
        If I do this once a year, then the Suburban should be able to
support the QSL poundage.  BUT, if I miss one then it's U-Hual time.
                                                73 de Milt, N5IA

        BTW, was there an ulterior motive to this suggestion??????
