But e-mail is not a very easy way of exchanging cards. So, in 1998, we created the first eQSL exchange and called it www.QSLCard.com, and it has attracted a huge following. Our system does not use e-mail at all. So you really don't "send" eQSLs. Instead, it stores your log in a large database. When another user uploads his log, we look at all the log entries that "match", and allow you to display and print eQSLs from those matching log entries.
In April, 2000, we converted the entire system to a very robust and high tech database-oriented system and renamed our site www.eQSL.cc, the Electronic QSL Card Centre.
We are now the ONLY exchange for electronic QSL cards, with 18.3 million eQSLs from 253 countries currently online.
We have also begun a new program in which Volunteer Guarantors can authorize a user. When 3 of these volunteers who have been issued Authenticity Guaranteed certificates by eQSL.cc have approved a new user, that user will automatically be issued an Authenticity Guaranteed certificate. For more details, read the Authenticity Guaranteed page.
If you are the authorized recipient of a QSL card, you should be able to look in your logbook and find the callsign, date, time, band, and mode of each QSO you want to retrieve a QSL from. If you are a registered user, you'll get a list of all cards waiting for you, but it will only show the callsign, date, and mode, and you must upload a matching log entry with all of the correct information. Once your OutBox matches your InBox, you will be able to display and print the eQSLs for all matching log entries.
Why aren't you called eQSL.com? What's the CC?When domain names were opened up a few years ago to allow non-US firms to grab .com domains, a French company registered eQSL.com and has been holding it in reserve ever since. Their application has nothing to do with amateur radio or eQSL Cards.
