North Jersey DX Association staffed a booth along with members of the W1 incoming QSL Bureau at the ARRL Centennial Convention in Hartford, CT July 18th & 19th. We answered questions about bureau operations, checked subscriber credit status, and accepted new subscriber and renewal payments.
Doug, W2EN, Bill W2UDT, and Eric, KV1J gave a 1 hour forum on the history of the bureaus and QSL'ing in the 21st century. The room had 100 seats and it was packed! People were standing and sitting on the floor.
We had 25 NJDXA members sign in at the W1/W2 booth.
