The New Turnpike

Hackensack was down the road from my childhood home. I've been there many times. And we took the NJ turnpike many times during the summers. Atlantic city!

Another QSL card.  This one, from a high school ham radio club.

"73" means "best regards" or "my compliments" in ham radio lingo.  It is a term that can be traced back to the old telegraph days.
