Here's one of my old QSL's from my time in Germany. My old Ham buddy Lothar sent me this card years ago. I'm still looking for my old VP2EHF QSL Card to post here. Someplace I have a KR6DEM from Okinawa too. On this card, the "AAT9IV" was my Army MARS Callsign -- I operated AA9US too (The HQ, US Army Europe MARS Station in Heidelberg).
Nice. VF-114 AE and Plane Captain 1983-1986 on the Big E and NAS Miramar.
I have a phot0 somewhere on my laptop of a rail maintenance car that I took on the island of Mallorca, Spain in the city of Soller. It was basically the cab of a vehicle similar to a Model T-Ford with train wheels and some make-shift tool boxes.
Looks like someone else took a photo of it and posted it online
Angela just made this design and I printed them out this week! I like the classic feel.
I too could be categorized as obsessive over QSL cards, given the number of times I have changed the design on mine. One could practically tell what month they talked to me (at first) just by looking at the design of the card (that is, if they were able to see all the other designs). One of these days, I will have to decide on a "final product" and have them professionally printed as my Lexmark Color Laser is not cheap to maintain.
Thanks for posting this. I saw it a few months ago and found it rather humorous. Yes, I had to laugh as I can totally get where the guy is coming from, yet I tend to be much more conservative and budget friendly with my st
With a background image like that, you'd think it would have been more difficult to steal. I recommend using a super obscure font for your call sign on a multi-colored background. Unless you're skilled with graphics, it would take work to simply copy that (and honestly, most HAMS would rather spend the time building a new antenna).
I'm proud to say I just finshed making my own QSL card today and plan to get it printed out.
I wasn't sure what to put on mine at first but ended up using one of the pictures I took while at work.
