I recently ran into a number of QSL cards and I got to thinking about scanning them in and putting them here in the Photo Page. Some of them are rather unique. Please send me a copy of your QSL card or of some of the other IOOK'er's that are not shown here and I will include them. These are in alphabetical order...I think.
This first one is a few years old - when Jim and Sue still lived in the Dayton area...
Bert just sent this one in so it is up to date!
Tom sent in a couple of cards...first the old one...
...and a more up to date one as well!
Yeah, this one is out of date too - They haven't lived in Virginia for years!
Hmm, they are back in Virginia now - guess he will have to update the address!
Here are a couple of KA8PBB's QSL cards...
This card of KC4YG's is from a few years ago as well!
KN8J QSL - Front
KN8J QSL - Back
This QSL card dates from 1976
below - WA5LTM's QSL card
This QSL card of WA8MSD's dates from 11/30/68.
Before Max changed his callsign to KC4YG, his callsign was WA8PBC. We affectionately called him "Push Button Charlie"! Here are a couple of his early QSL cards from that vintage.
Back in the "old days" Sam's callsign was WA8VTW. Here is a QSL card of Sam's from 1968.
Yes, I was licensed at age 14. My dad was a ham, so that accounts for the fine station in the picture - it was his! The station consisted of an Eico 720 transmitter, Collins 75S-1 receiver, Gonset G-50 6 meter transceiver and a Gonset Communicator IV 2 meter am transceiver. Yes, I did hold both the Novice and Technician licenses at the same time. At that time there was only one band that overlapped privileges. That was 2 meters - and back then it was 2 meter AM. So, when I was on 2 meters I could use either callsign. This card dates from 1965.
Here is an old family QSL card I made up some time after Marian first got her license.
This pencil drawing card was made by a former student of mine, Mark Henn, who is now an artist with Disney Studios in California.
This one dates from 1976
Recently, Marian was asked by a new ham at church to be his first contact on the air. Of course, once a contact was made, she needed a QSL card, so we made her one!
More to come....
