Those who are interested in QSL cards from "rare countries" may be disappointed in this page.
Sorry, I am not a DXCC'er.

The Same Suffix
I have met four "GBD" stations on the air. Three of these QSOs were confirmed as below;
January, 1977 50MHz AM
July, 1990 21MHz CW
December, 1990 7MHz CW
I worked the other "GBD" on 430MHz FM.
Both JF3GBD and I were hiking in the same national park on the day we had a QSO,
which was a strikingly rare coincidence.
Father of CW
I was lucky to have worked M0RSE,
a special station celebrating the bicentennial of Samuel F. B. MORSE.
What a lovely callsign it is!
I worked this station on 21MHz CW in April, 1991.
However, I didn't know the QSL route, and looked for it in vain.
It was five years after the QSO that I unexpectedly received the QSL via the bureau.
Now it is one of the most important items in my QSL collection.
QSO with My Own Suffix?
On November 24, 1996, I was working CQ WW CW contest on the 7MHz band.
To my surprise, I heard someone sending "GBD GBD ....", the suffix of my callsign, repeatedly.
It took me several seconds to recognize it was G6D, instead of GBD, for the signal was very weak and nearly masked by QRM and QRN.
