A small, thin packet of QSL cards from the W2 QSL bureau was waiting for me when I got home from work today. Inside was my QSL card confirming my 17 Meter QRP CW contact with VP6DX, Ducie Island from back in February of 2008.
As the QRPer's motto goes, patience really does pay off. Patience, two separate monetary donations, a whole ton of e-mails and a two year and nine month wait - but it did finally come. To be honest, I had given up a while ago and figured "that's the way the cookie crumbles". But it's nice to have the card!
