Show me your QSL, and I’ll tell you who you are

Well, Jeff K1NSS has done it again. Just came across another one of his QSL designs - this one for QRP ARCI’s Steve Fletcher - and it’s fab! If you’re still dusting off those banal, old American Eagle QSL cards from the 70’s, maybe it’s time to have Jeff work on a design to tell your amateur story….  @K1NSS

Being without power for 10 days after Hurricane Sandy, I decided to pass the time one evening by taking out an old box of QSL cards and look through them as I sat by the fireplace to keep warm (no, 46 degree F indoor temp is not comfy). These were from my amateur past-life as WB2VEN. I really enjoyed looking them over and had forgotten about some of the more interesting ones residing in that box. I thought I’d scan and share one here from time to time. A great facet of the hobby that I really hope we don’t lose as hams increasingly embrace digital QSLing.
