April QSL Inbox

H40TT QSL Card

April was very good to me. I got my first QSL Bureau shipment in a very long time. I expect more frequent deliveries in the future as I continue to operate more and catch up on my QSLing. The world of QSLs have changed a lot in the last decade or so. I was beginning […]

March QSL Inbox

VP8LP QSL Card

March 2021 has been good to me, QSL-wise. I’ve had some trouble getting a Belarus QSL card for a while. So, I was happy when Sergey (EU1A) came through with this 40M SSB confirmation.

ARRL Outgoing QSL Bureau Rates

QSL Cards

Flash: Hold off on sending in your outgoing QSL cards to the ARRL, at least until May 15th. When I got more active in Amateur Radio recently I was a bit taken aback by the much higher rates for the ARRL Outgoing QSL Service. Having been licensed in 1985 I’m getting old enough to wax […]
