Rare QSL
KBS Daegu
2510 kHz

I am not sure what kind of scale one would use to rate the rareness of QSLs, but I am sure this rates high on any rareness scale. One morning in December 1977, I heard a signal fade up on 2510 kHz in Korean. After a couple of minutes, I heard them identify as “KBS Daegu, HLKG.” Wow I thought, I must send them a reception report. A few weeks later a friendly handwritten QSL letter from Mr. Oh Kap-hwan, TV transmitting engineer, at KBS Daegu arrived in the mail. He said he was at a loss because his station did not handle QSL cards, but those were handled by the main station in Seoul. That doesn’t matter to me, this is still a great QSL.
