E-QSL Cards

Looking around on the E-QSL site, I noticed a feature which looks for variations of your call sign. Many times, I make a special effort to let stations know I'm operating "portable" or "QRP".

This program takes a few minutes to run but happily, I found seven new cards on the site with the /QRP or /P after my call sign. Three of them were DX contacts....




I love the E-QSL site and use it exclusively for my radio contacts. In these days of soaring (especially international postage) rates, I see no reason to use anything else for confirmations.

I'll always return a paper QSL card when receiving a SASE for those who still like them.

I had no idea this was an option available to "QRP" and "portable" operators.  I like it very much....

Hi John and Happy New Year. I have decided to go 100% e-qsl and made that fact clear on my QRZ page. Same reasons as yours. 73 Dick

Hi John, I use only eQSL, because I am no longer a member of the bureau. I like this way of returning QSL's. Happy new year, 73 Paul

Thanks for the info John. Didn't know that as well. Although not operating that much /P I did some /QRP operating. This way you don't have to make more accounts. I'll have a look at it 73, Bas

Good afternoon John, I too use eQSL as well and was not aware of this feature. I will visit eQSL and give it a go.
