January 2024 QSL Card Inbox

January started off slow, but things picked up with several individual cards showing up in the mail. Then my first batch of bureau cards in some time. I also got word that I have an additional 80 QSL Cards at the bureau waiting to be mailed to me. The Columbian Island of San Andres lies […]

December 2023 QSL Card Inbox

Up through mid-December, things were a bit slow on the QSL Card Inbox. But I received a number of interesting cards as Christmas approached. In the end, it’s been a productive couple of months at KA5WSS. This card confirms contacts with 9Q1AA in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It confirms QSOs on 15M and […]

October 2023 QSL Card Inbox

Here are some of the latest cards to arrive at my QTH. I worked Raul (EA5KA) during his visit to Easter Island in the Pacific Ocean where he operated as CE0Y/EA5KA. This QSL card confirms contacts on new bands on 30M and 17M, both using CW. I had confirmed the Ducie Island, also in the […]

August 2023 QSL Card Inbox

Here are some of the latest QSL Cards that have graced my P.O. Box. My only St. Vincent QSL card up to the present time was from a 10M SSB QSO in 2003. Adding some new bands and modes, I worked the J8NY DXpedition using both CW and FT8 on the 80M, 20M and 17M […]

May 2023 QSL Card Inbox

The last couple of months had a slow start for incoming QSL cards. But we then left for a couple of weeks of vacation and I came home to a nice set of cards awaiting me. And then near the end of this month I received one of the most important QSL cards I’ve received […]

February 2023 QSL Card Inbox

The last couple of months have been very good to me. Each of the QSL cards below represent an All Time New One (ATNO) or DXCC countries I had never worked and confirmed before. I’d worked 2 Papua New Guinea stations in the 1990s, both during the IARU HF Championship. But I never found the […]

December 2022 QSL Card Inbox

I’m wrapping up 2022 with my last QSL card update of the year. As I write this ClubLog reports that I have made 2,962 QSOs and contacted 172 DXCC entities. Both are the most I’ve ever done in a single year. I’m also far more focused on QSLing those contacts as soon as possible. In […]

July 2022 QSL Card Inbox

It was a busy month, QSL card-wise. I received two separate packets from the incoming QSL card bureau. Many of those were Japanese cards, with several of them being new JCC and JCG entities that I needed for those awards. Here are a few other cards coming in this month of note. Guadalupe is not […]

June 2022 QSL Card Inbox

Here are a few of the more interesting QSL cards I received in the last month. I’ve worked a ton of US Virgin Island stations on the air over the years. But I’ve heard very few British Virgin Island stations for some reason and never managed to work one. The VP2V/N2EIN DXpedition there took care […]

May 2022 QSL Card Inbox

Here are some of the more interesting QSL cards I received in the month of May 2022. This is a nice, hard to get, DXCC country. Mount Athos is in Greece, but it counts as a separate country for award purposes due to its isolation and autonomy. I worked Monk Iakovos (SV2RSG/A) on both 20M […]
