A good many of you might wonder why I took the time to research and write a book about paper QSL cards. Especially since the electronic revolution of the QSL part of our hobby a while back.
Many hams have stopped giving out paper QSL cards citing the costs and work involved.
Still, there are many new hams coming into our exciting hobby who may want to know more about the QSL process. This book is for them. Some may fell the information in The QSL Book is too basic or too elementary. Some people tend to shy away from asking questions. They avoid subjects others may view as elementary. This book is for those with questions they may never ask.
What qualifies me to write about QSL cards? Nothing more than the love I have for exchanging QSL cards. Much of the information contained within this eBook comes from my own experiences. And my own mistakes with QSL cards. A great deal comes from research. And communications with those who pioneered online QSL services. (QRZ.com, HamCall.net).
