Send 3 green stamps and you might get a qsl via the ocean!
Send beer ;-)
I was hoping the message was from Mary Ann.
Or Ginger - no need to be picky
What's the problem - use the email address to find the sender ????
Before it washed out (been years apparently)...what the message REALLY said...the Skipper always had a mess o' fish fry for his good buddies;-) And Maine lobster...what a swim!
Goodness! The Skipper had a SECRET LIFE...whoda thot?---
I gotta wonder, if I wanted to put a message in a bottle, which might have to last decades, what would I write it with to assure it's longevity?
Given the way governments work today, they probably just want to find him so they can write him a ticket for littering.
Just kidding. Not really.
1st ever QSL found in a bottle ????.. IRC's no good, do not send...$2 for return...
forceps and her 40 colleagues to remove a note... Lateral thinking for most would be smash the bottle unless they plan to send a return note in it...
Anyone reckon they'll play spin the bottle
After yesterday's start I got some searching on the net and could have a hint of who it could be. On the staff list of the Peter 1 Island operation there was a Polish operator. The transport ship then downloaded a lot i Brazil (?) and continued to Bouvet Island. But there were just 4 operator going ashore there. two Norwegians one from the USA and F2CW, who I had the pleasure to contact and later got the QSL. There is not mention of any Polish person there. Could it be that he was still on the transport ship and felt "left behind" and while waiting for the operators ashore to return. If this is the background to the bottle, I believe that the "writer" could be Robert, SP5XVY. If that is true the "date" on the bottle ought to be December 1989 or January 1990.
