Recollections of Using a Wireless
PART V - QSLs

(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.)
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
