QSLing has been a tradition of radio stations worldwide since the very beginning. These cards show the station’s capabilities, location, and signal information about the contact along with the date, and time of the contact.
These paper cards can also show the operator’s artistic side. Some cards come with pictures or drawings while others include a collage of clip-art and text. My regular card was custom-made for me and shows a calm sunset in Corolla, North Carolina looking towards the mainland across the Currituck Sound.
No matter what the QSL card looks like it is always a thrill to open the mailbox and find one of these cards waiting for you.
My QSL policy is as follows:
- I QSL 100% via LoTW.
- I’ll reply to any bureau request.
- A self-addressed envelope is requested if you are sending a card direct.
