US Army Corps of Engineers QSL Opportunity

From Jim Pogue:

Once again, station WUG-231 will offer a special QSL card for SWLs only who hear our station during the ANNUAL ARMED FORCES DAY CROSSBAND MILITARY/AMATEUR RADIO COMMUNICATIONS TEST this Saturday, 10/11 MAY 2008.

Any SWL worldwide who hears us is invited to send a reception report and receive our special commemorative QSL card. This will be different than the one amateurs receive for any contacts they make with us.

You may send your report directly to me at the address below. No return postage is necessary. Frequencies are also listed below. Good luck and I hope to hear from you.
