$2000 is a nut if you see all the hardware/stations you have at KC1XX !!

A lot of bigguns are showing the world how tey construct super big stations
on the web but QSL-CARDS are to expensive .Common guy's.
Did they ever think how many qso's they gonna loose after years  :-((

I did operate John ON4UN station in contesting and one week after the
contest all
cards are in the buro.Thats John strategy : QSL's and they will call you
back in the
next contest .And change sometime the view of cards help also !!!

There are good programs for printing cards after the contest .Even if you
work a station
on 6bands it cost you only 1 card !!Look at BV-QSL.Fantastic !!!

Happy Contesting
