Henry, NL0H, informed me today that he has finally managed to sort out
his QSLs requests that up to now had not been processed. These cards
relate to 2019 & 2020 before I took over the role as his Manager.
He sincerely apologizes for the delay and advises that the cards

fully this will be within the next fortnight.
