QSL GALLERY ---> "Globetrotters" is a  new gallery  that  Jean-Michel, F6AJA
has added to the large collection of QSL cards on Les Nouvelles DX's website
(http://www.lesnouvellesdx.fr/galerieqsl.php).  It "focuses on the QSLs used
by those who have travelled the world",  and for the time being  it contains
839 QSLs.  Those who operated under an individual or group callsign from "at
least 50 Current or Deleted DXCC Entities can be included in this album.  It
is absolutely certain that some globetrotters are missing,  so your coopera-
tion is needed. If you are one of them and eligible for this album,  or know
of one or more  OMs that  could be included,  thank you in advance  for your

"We will continue what Zorro JH1AJT (SK) started years ago. Information will
be sent  to the public  after we're back home  to Europe.  There's  a lot of
simple things to do  for those kids.  It will cost us almost nothing to make
them happy".
