“t was quiet some time ago that I did an update on the support situation for Vlad.
Just last friday Vlad mentioned to me that it was exactly 7 years ago that his beloved mother died. That means that we’re running this unique support project for Vlad now over 7 years what is a really great success!
Vlad asked me to express his gratefulness and thanks everybody who supported him so far, especially of course those few who do this on a monthly base. He is very happy to be able to be on air as much as conditions and health allow. He also continues to provide Azerbaijan as a multiplier in many contests in different modes. He loves to share the communication with his friends on the short wave frequencies.
As we know the monthly costs for his 24 hours / 7 days care taker Valentina is not that high compared to European costs but it is a monthly payment so the problem is the time factor as we have to pay this costs every month.
From todays perspective with many one time supporters in the first years and a small number of generous monthly supporters the situation is that at the end of this year 2015 we will have used all received support while the actual monthly support covers only half the costs. This is the way it goes for the last 3 years or so.
Of course it would be the best if we could find about 10-15 people who are ready to support Vlad with about 20€ per month. In the mean time any support will very much appreciated too. So we would like to ask you to thank and decide how you can support Vlad in his difficult situation.
If you decide to support this project on a monthly term please contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. If you want to support on a one time base the same email address can be used on PayPal – please note your callsign and that the support is for 4K9W.
We wish you all the best!
