VU2PAI QSLS. Pai, VU2PAI, sends OPDX the following message (edited):
"After almost 3 hectic years, I am free and back on the air again. I was very busy with business and office work and doing a lot of travel in India and to DX lands. I was at Dayton Hamfest this year and it was a lot of fun! I will surely be there next year also. I will try and visit Fredrichshafen next year. The reason for my mail is regarding my QSLs. I am clearing all my old backlog of QSL cards, and if anybody needs a QSL card from me for all my activities, they may please send me the QSO details to:Ananth G.Pai, Post Box-730, Bharath Beedi Works Ltd, Kadri Road, Mangalore - 575 003 India.
firstname.lastname@example.org --or-- email@example.comQSL cards for Expeditions to IOTA AS-096 (St. Marys Island, May 2001) and AS-161 (Sacrifice Rock, January 2002) can be sent to me. I still have cards left from my activities as VU2PAI/50, AT0PAI, AT2PAI and VU2PAI/C, so if anyone needs a card for those contacts, I will be happy to QSL.
Please note mail is tampered in the post office. Avoid sending green stamps to India while sending QSL cards. IRCs are fine. If sending green stamps registered air mail letter is better.
I would be happy to recieve any postage stamps instead of IRCs or green stamps, so if you have any spare stamps or envelopes with stamps from your country or DX contacts, I will be happy to get them. I have been collecting postage stamps since I was in school, and I donate my extra stamps to our local stamp club to school children.
All QSL cards for contact with VU7LD/VU2PAI go to W3HNK who is the QSL Manager for the VU7LD expedition. QSL cards for only AT0AI (IOTA AS-169 Arnala Island) is via VU2SWS.
See you on the air soon, and I apologize for the delay in some QSL cards. I will soon be active on digital and low bands also. I hope you publish this information in your next DX news bulletin.....
