eQSL and one SWL

An SWL is a postcard confirming a listening station has heard and confirmed your QSO with another HAM. Its always nice to get a card and I always feel a little sorry for them not being able to transmit. This SWL is really great and good looking.

Some Special Event Stations via eQSL

HG25PANEU is a special amateur radio station run by the Amateur Radio Club of Sopron, Hungary (HA1KSS). The goal is to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the Pan-European Picnic and Border Breakthrough near Sopron at the Austro-Hungarian border on 8/19/1989, when, during a friendly reunion and peace demonstration between neighbouring Austrian and Hungarian villages, hundreds of GDR-refugees broke through the temporarily opened border and fled to Austria and West Germany.


OL150FIRE is short time activity dedicated to 150th Anniversary of  the founding first Czech Volunteer Fire-brigades in Czech lands.

Special event station PA70PARA honours the 70th commemoration of the Allied airborne troops who fought in Operation Market Garden, in and around the city of Arnhem, the Netherlands in September 1944.

In The Hague, on 31 May 2006, Queen Beatrix of the Netherlands awarded the Military Order of William to the 1st Independent Polish Parachute Brigade. Despite British diplomatic pressure, the brigade's commander, Sosabowski, was posthumously awarded the "Bronze Lion". In part this was the result of a Dutch TV documentary depicting the brigade as having played a far more significant role in Market Garden than had been hitherto acknowledged. In this film Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands said the Poles deserved to be honoured with at least a medal.
