For the life of the club.

Dear friends of the 3900 Club,
My name is Brian Duddy and my callsign is N2BTD. I am an amateur radio historian & preservationist from New York. I recently obtained a small collection of early QSL cards that were sent to William Servis of Troy, NY who held the callsign 2CUL in the early 1920’s. One of the cards in the collection was from Dick Pitner when he was a SWL in 1925. The card was mailed from Sioux City, IA on March 16th, 1925. I believe Dick became licensed around 1927 and his first callsign was W9FZO, then he became W0FZO once callsign areas were restructured.
I thought the club would enjoy seeing his card.

The nurse caring for Marlin says it really makes Marlin's day to get cards and letters. So drop him a note and wish him well. I received this info on the 75M ISBN net on 7/16 and thought I would pass it along to the multitude.
