CY9 QSLS WANTED FOR MUSEUM. Duane, WV2B (VA1ZZ), announced the following:
"I am interested in creating a display of QSLs from DXpeditions to St.
Paul Island (Nova Scotia, Canada) CY9, for donation to the St. Paul Island
museum located in Dingwall, NS. Sorry, I just can't afford to pay 10 USDs
for each one on eBay, but would like to be sure the museum is able to
recognize the history of DXpeditions and radio operations from the island
with a display of actual QSL cards issued for contacts from the island.
So, if anyone has old cards they no longer want, have duplicates of, from
an SK or whatever, I would sure like to have them. Just need one from
each activation in good condition for framing and display. Incidently,
the lighthouse from SW St. Paul which had been on display at the Coast
Guard HQ in Dartmouth is now at the museum and being reassembled there.
Check out the St. Paul Island Historical Society on facebook to see
pics of the project..... 73 for now, Duane, WV2B (VA1ZZ)."
