My Early QSL Card History
|First QSL Card -1959 - No place for time or freq....Only had three crystals anyway: 3717 Kilocycles, 7159 Kilocycles and one low in the 40 meter band which tripled to 15 meters. And don't tell me that's not just an O, instead of a real zero.|
|Next card...Large bold letters (at least a real zero this time with the funky bar cut through it), to be seen on a DX station's wall in a photo of some exotic DX station in the "How's DX" column of QST. Never saw my card in QST. Oh well, I guess you have to work 'em first!|
Third card...Got wild with red...Still didn't show up in QST. Still needed to work some rare DX. Hey! Zipcodes are here!
|Next card came 14 years later, with my first house. Still had a "C.S.T" option, and "MC" for the freq. Ben Walker, K0AEU, did cards for many of us K.C. guys in those days.|
