While the QSLing process is working just fine, it is possible that a small numer of cards have been lost somewhere or are still in process. [...] If you are still waiting for your cards and are concerned, I invite you to write back to me (directly please). Please be brief; I don't need a huge explanation, just your callsign and the vitae of your contacts. I will make a special personal effort to track them down for you. Please note that the internet log server is current. Log into <http://www.ccnet.com/~cordell/HI> and press the red button "Am I in the log?" If your QSO is not on the server, it is not in the log per se. In a very few cases, it is possible the log is wrong, so if you have a reasonable story, please forward that to me and I will see what we can do. Also please note that this is not a promise to give cards where they are not deserved. We must be able to find a log entry that is clearly yours in order to issue the card." /EX S DX@WW $425WW321F 425 DX News #321 [6/7] 28 June 1997 No 321 BID: $425WW321F =========================== *** 4 2 5 D X N E W S *** =========================== QSL VIA HP2CWB ---> HP2CWB is the QSL manager for HP2CWB/HP4, HP9I, 3F3C, H33C, HO3C, H92A, 3E2G, 3F0T, HO2M, HO1P, H95H, H88C, H99I, HO0S, H30S, H80S, and 3E0S.
