    Where did QSL cards come from and why did they get so popular for ham radio operators?

    Hope you enjoy the video!

    Very good presentation on QSL cards. I still send cards. My card is one printed from Cheap QSL cards, I chose from there library a cream color with blue letters with my call N7KO, my SKCC #19430 and has a picture of a J38 style straight Key. All information is on the front of the card. 73,

    I'm a new ham, got my general in January of 2018. I really enjoy getting and sending QSL cards. I have a pretty generic card right now but this video has given me food for though on designing a new one. Thanks for putting this together!

    Well done! I just created my QSL cards a few weeks ago, restocked the ink in my printer and ready to snail-mail you that 5 and 9 report. Real QSO cards are part of the HF magic.

    73!

    Thanks for a great video Matt! I have collected old QSL cards for many years. One that I have is from 1921 belonging to 8CF. Another is my dad's card, W9EAP, from a QSO he had in 1935. I really appreciate your efforts in putting this video together.

    Nice job! My QSL card (front) is my avatar, but it's a little chopped...
