    Not mine but found recently. I got this from a Japanese ham in about 1968 whilst I was on HMS Naiad/GKYU visiting Shimizu. He was a Japanese Naval radio operator, I think the equivalent of a Petty Officer.
    I wonder what I should do with it.

    Wasn't wondering more than 10s...
    Have a QSO on A1A 40m NVIS with a neighbour of you, club member or friend, faking you're JA2GBF, be sure mix in some Wabun code.
    Wait a few weeks and let the QSL card duly filled at your friend's door.
    After a few pints, simply comment "Did you catch the amazing 40m opening with Japan two weeks ago?"
    Goes without saying, will be difficult for him to confirm the "Japan" contact with LoTW or QRZ logbook.

    For geographical reasons, it is difficult for me to receive signals from the eastern United States. I hope I can communicate with you

    Some new cards arrived yesterday!


    That’s my favorite bug - a 1964 Vibroplex Blue Racer that was given to me by a ham friend.

    Hey Rich, I have not done much on 10m, and can't tune in 6m very well on this rig, but happy to give it a shot! Those 40's style cards are looking great.

    I've designed quite a few more since I last posted in this thread, thought I'd share some here.

    Here's a standard QSL I've used for a long time:
    And a QRP version:

    These are a few standard ones using computer wallpaper:

    More designs... this first one is a picture I took of Big Brutus, the largest electric coal shovel in the world:


    This is my antique Bunnell key-on-board with sounder:

    This picture was taken by a friend of mine:

    This old-time design was inspired by a recent thread here on the 'zed:

    This is one I made playing around with a .jpg of the painting "Nighthawks." I tried to make my callsign look like a lighted sign on the diner.

    A few more using wallpaper:

    I took this picture at a local zoo:

    And then I made some QRP QSL's with pictures of the QRP rigs I built, so I can send a QSL for each QSO I make with one of my QRP rigs.

    And then I have a QSL just for reports of my 10m beacon, and one I made for any SWL reports.

    Looking through my QSL's, I found that I've got a QSL from N5AQM for a QSO back in 1994 which uses this same picture.
