I’m so excited! I received the finished QSL cards for this summer’s road trip in the mail yesterday. I’ve got a lot going on right now with the end of the semester, so I have to wait until late this month to work on them, but I have them!
Please do NOT send me a SASE. The cards are over-sized full color postcards: 8.5 inches by 5.47 inches. If you want to help defray the cost of the cards and mailing, I can still accept donations through PayPal (the email address for PayPal only is bionicnerd [at] yahoo [dot] com). Sending money is not a requirement, but sending a SASE will not help since the cards won’t fit.
PLEASE DO send me a QSL card of your own confirming our QSO if you have not already.
A word about LOTW and eQSL: “Eventually.” :-) I have my password postcard from LOTW, so it’s just a matter of getting it set up. I’m on eQSL already, but again, it’s an issue of time. My logs from the trip are paper logs. Luckily, Eugene is diving headfirst into all things ham radio, so I’ll be able to enlist his help in getting set up to send QSLs by all preferred methods.
Want spoiler info about the cards? There are about 60 photos from the trip showcased on the front: some of the people I met, sights I saw, and yes, even a picture of poutine.
To those of you who aren’t hams but were part of my trip, you’ll be getting a postcard, too.
My target mailing date is January 3, 2013 OR LATER. I know, I’m excited, too, but I have to wait until school stuff is done.
