QSL from NHK World's Spanish Service (Japan)

On 5 September, 2012, at 0940 UTC, I heard NHK World Radio --
in Spanish -- on 6080 khz (it was logged here). The transmission came
from the trasmitter in Bonaire, in the southern Caribbean. I promptly
went to their website and filled out the the contact form requesting a
QSL. Less than three weeks later, I received a long, slim white
envelope from Japan. It contained the QSL card (filled out by hand),
a radio schedule poster, a postcard and a flier promoting the Spanish
service. The package also included a blank reception report form for
future QSL requests. It could be folded to make its own envelope.

The image below shows the postcard on top, and the front of the
QSL card (the pointy hat one) at the bottom. Below that image,
you can see the back of the QSL card, and the last image is
the Spanish service promotional sheet.

Me and my wife just got back from a honeymoon cruise to Mexico,
and I was able to log some interesting stations.  More on that in an
upcoming post!
