My current, needs new address and email. And my first card from 1973ish. I was 13.
This is an earlier one. I printed up some little (removable) CENSORED stickers for situations where people might be offended by a cartoon.
I have a zillion of them.... easily over 45 that I could use. I love the art of the paper QSL card - always have. And I've always done my own artwork on them (exception is the "pen and ink" one designed by master QSL artist K1NSS). I only send them out when I get an SASE or if I just want the return card.
But I try to make the "situationally appropriate" to the rig that was in play for the contact.
Here's a few that are current right now. It changes all the time...
WoW Dave is there an award if you collect them all
I need to make new ones to reflect the callsign upgrade. Once I get something charged up maybe I can harvest some images of cards past.
Here's a sketch by WB4FHI (now K4FHI) which I turned into a card. 1977.
Obviously, you pulled out all your hair getting all those Heath units going!
Then there was this fun
I messed around at a print shop owned by a local ham, WD4POO and got to play around a lot.
