QSL Cards

The final courtesy…

… of a QSO is a QSL card. Remember this old adagio? In 2021 it’s still valid for me. I’ve been collecting cards since I used to be a SWL. As licensed HAM I have a collection of about 67,000 “real” paper cards as well as thousands of eQSL cards and LoTW confirmations. Wether it be that elusive ultra DX contact or a ragchew contact with someone in the neighbourhoud, I simply love receiving those cards. The vast majority of my cards are being sent via the QSL bureau, which, whatever some may pretend, do a marvelous job at a reasonable cost.

QSL storage

With over 67,000 QSL cards on hand, one has to be a bit inventive when it comes to storage. Fortunately, my shack has plenty of room. I have them sorted by DXCC entity.
Am I in your log? Great! PSE send me your QSL card!
