    (y) Good stuff Larry. Where was he in Greenland? My very first ever 11m DX QSL card was from Greenland. Pretty good first QSL hey? I worked a couple stations in Nanortalik on the southwest coast. I still remember the names and callsigns. Ben NK-48 and Christian NK-166. Later I worked Godthab, now called Nuuk and even the air base in Thule (now called Qaanaaq).

    Here are some pic's of the place Garth. I also talked to another place back 20+ years there, the guy was at a place called Halls Landing, but I never could find it on the map.

    You get mail delivery on Sunday? And people complain about USPS ... can't be all bad. Hopefully, mine will show up tomorrow as well. I did some research at the time and am pretty sure of his location at the time. See my DX map and look for Greenland;

    Cool. That place is about 125 miles northwest of Nanortalik where I talked. I love Google earth for looking up stuff like that.(y)

    Thanks Larry, and congrats to you as well. I only hope that I can catch any leftovers you leave behind with my coat-hanger antenna.
