    Because we used to say, on the air, "I'm good in the Callbook". The ARRL used to publish a call book of all FCC licensed AROs with address, which was used for QSLing. QRZ provides this information, and a whole lot more, for free, at the tap of your fingers.

    Remember in the movie The Jerk, the Steve Martin character ran through the neighborhood shouting, "The phone books are here, the phone books are here", because he had his first telephone and his phone number would be listed in this new edition of the phonebook. Ditto that for new hams and a new edition of the Callbook after they were first licensed or upgraded. … At least everyone checked to make sure they were, "Good in the Callbook".

    Even an old, outdated Callbook from a previous year was a treasure to have and use even though it was not current. It was likely most of your contacts would be in your old Callbook. If you needed QSL info on someone not in your old Callbook you could go to the library and use their Callbook.

    I have live abroad for over 25 years in various countries and I know first hand how much trouble it is for hams to get something simple like postage for an SASE for a QSL much less the IRCs. In my DX ops I never charged postage for a QSL card and returned all the SASEs I got to the hams for use on other stations. I looked at it as a cost of my hobby. I know not everyone could financially handle it but I could and looked on it as good will for our hobby. I am still getting requests for QSO's I had in 1978 on eqsl, I always ask if they need a paper one. It is a good thing I can still read my handwriting on those paper logs. 73's Ed

    The ARRL publishes a lot of books, but the Callbook was not one of them. I don't know if the company was actually called "Flying Horse", but the callbooks had a picture of Pegasus on the cover and was always referred to as the Flying Horse Callbook just like the CD-ROM version they publish today.
