Rare QSL
KBS Daegu
2510 kHz

I’m not exactly sure how one would quantify the rarity of QSLs, but this one surely ranks high on any rarity scale. Back in December 1977, I caught a signal emerging on 2510 kHz in Korean. After a few moments, I discerned the identification: “KBS Daegu, HLKG.” Instantly, I felt compelled to send them a reception report. Several weeks later, a warmly handwritten QSL letter arrived from Mr. Oh Kap-hwan, the TV transmitting engineer at KBS Daegu. He expressed his surprise as their station typically didn’t handle QSL cards, but rather the main station in Seoul did. Nonetheless, to me, it remains a remarkable QSL.
