What's on the mind of a UK ham radio operator?
Do not send me eQSL cards, I do not use them??
It amazes me of the amount of times I see DO NOT SEND ME ESQL CARDS plastered across people's QRZ page. If you don't use EQSL and haven't got it set up on your computer then it doesn't matter if 1000 people send you an electronic card, it's not going to affect you in the slightest. However, what is great about EQSL is if you do decide you want to sign up you will receive cards that have been sent to you previously.
I no longer send paper cards now, it's just too expensive. The price of a second class stamp in the UK is 57p, I think it's something like 67p for first class stamp. Electronic QSL is the future as far as I'm concerned. I design my own cards in photo shop so it doesn't cost me a penny. Sending cards automatically is just so easy, in fact my cards are sent automatically every time I log contact. And if somebody wants to print the cards out all they need is a decent printer and some card, you've then got a perfect paper QSL card for your collection.
