New one, 3V8BB!

It is surprising how a simple piece of card can make one smile.

I arrived home from work this evening to find an envelope with a hand written address waiting for me.  On opening it, this was the card inside. The card confirms that on the 27th of September, 2008 at 13:06 UTC, Fex (the operator at the time) and I had a brief communication on the 14Mhz band using the Radioteletype (RTTY) data mode.  I don’t use RTTY often, so it must have been during a contest.

Why did it make me smile?  well this is my first EVER confirmed contact with another Amateur Radio station in Tunisia.
