Satellite QSLs

Back in my day… Okay, I’m really not that old. But I have noticed that some newer operators only have LoTW QSLs on their Gridmaster map tool. I’ll admit, the idea of instant gratification is, well, gratifying, but I miss those cards coming in the mail that all have different pictures on them and some even come with the op’s handwritten messages as well! I’m sure QSL cards are still floating through the postal service and delighting receivers much as their contact did. For posterity, here are a few of the QSL cards I’ve received since I started working satellites.
