MD/OP2D QSL Preview

K1600 QSL-MD-OP2D---300gr--glanslaminaat

A DXpedition doesn’t finish when the antennas are pulled down at the end of the day. Work is ongoing for weeks after the team arrive home. Logs have to be collated, emails answered, sponsors terms and conditions must be met. QSL cards have to be designed which means I need a fast turn around from the team to decide on which photographs to use on the QSL card, text needs to be agreed and the with the help of Max ON5UR who has put together another proffesional set of designs for the NBDX Team’s DXpediiton MD/OP2D and the World Wide Flora & Fauna activities QRV as MD/ON4CKM/P from the Isle of Man.
