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 […]

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 […]
