Historic QSL from Radio Andorra

On August 27, 1980, Ralf Urbanczyk in Eisleben Germany was listening to the programming from the low powered Radio Andorra shortwave with 3 kW on 6220 kHz.  The QSL card that he received from this now silent shortwave station was the exotic, slightly over sized card that shows a young man and a young woman dressed in national costume and viewing the local scenery. The artistic rendering shows a lake, snow covered mountains and a nearby valley, together with two antenna towers for Radio Andorra shortwave, painted in the familiar red and white colors for aerial security.
