Radio-job: Since 1995 Iím handling the A.R.I. QSL Bureaus. Both Outgoing (100%) & Incoming (60%) services are done at my home. I calculated that I process over 2,500,000 cards each year. It means 8,400 Kg (18,500 pounds), if you put all of them one on top of the other youíll make a pile high over 750m (over 2,500 feet).
