Recollections of Using a Wireless Set No. 19
PART V - QSLs

By Ralph Cameron, VE3BBM

(Ed. Note: Ralph is a regular columnist in RAC's magazine, 'The Canadian Amateur', writing the 'Crosswaves' column.
Following are a few QSL cards from contacts made using a 19 Set many years ago.)

They all represent contacts made from the apartment building in North Bay, Ontario and I recall I was using a 40M dipole to work 80M. All contacts, except one, are on 3.6Mhz and they range from an unflattering RST 339 to a 569c.
(The exception is VE8NM when contact was actually made on 4.290Mhz when the [Royal Canadian] Air Force Amateur Radio System was authorized to use that frequency.)
The 19's chirp was distinctive and many a phone station in North Bay commented about the key clicks when I operated 15-20 Khz away from their frequency. I think they complained because they couldn't copy it -- hi.
These bring back fond memories and I have scads of cards from North American QSOs.
