A QSL card (see 11 April 2011 blog) from Galei Zahal, Broadcasting Station for the Israel Defence Forces, arrived in the mail today. A reception report was mailed and emailed shortly after 11 April 2011. Galei Zahal responded on 2 May 2011. Like a message in a bottle this QSL drifted around a sea of postal departments until it reached my mailbox on 21 November 2011. I had given up on ever receiving this QSL. It just goes to show -- as with most things in life -- persevere and, above all, be PATIENT.
