5K0K Story

San Andres (DXCC prefix HK0/A) is an oval, relatively small island (13km long, 3km wide) resembling the shape of a cigar. It lies in the southern part of the Caribbean Sea. Although the nearest mainland is Nicaragua, it belongs to Colombia (a South American country). However, it is paradoxically North American (IOTA NA-033) geographically.

QSL Service Referendum

After the increases in the Italian postal rates, we realized that the cost for the QSL service takes 50% of the amount paid by the Members.
As agreed in the Shareholders’ Meeting of September 8, 2019 in Montichiari, if we want to go on sponsoring the same amount of DXpeditions and therefore having the QSLs for free, we are faced with two choices:

1. decrease the number of annual shipments from 4 to 3;

2. increase the annual fee from 20 to 25 euros, as proposed by the majority of coordinators and directors.

The choice to you Members, let’s decide democratically how go on running our service, the spearhead of the Club.

73 MDXC H.Q.

Dopo gli aumenti delle tariffe postali italiane,  ci siamo resi conto che la spesa per il QSL service incide per il 50% di quanto versato dai soci.
Come concordato nella riunione dei soci dell’8 settembre 2019 a Montichiari, se vogliamo continuare a sponsorizzare lo stesso numero di DXpedition, e dunque avere le QSL gratuitamente, ci troviamo davanti a due scelte:

1. diminuire il numero delle spedizioni annuali da 4 a 3;
2. aumentare da 20 a 25 Euro la quota annuale, come proposto dalla maggioranza dei coordinatori e director presenti.

La scelta a voi soci, decidiamo democraticamente come continuare a far funzionare il nostro servizio, punta di diamante del Club.
