First Arizona

Contacted during my first 10m contest.  I was glad to get a state so far away so soon!

My QSL Card

Even in the era of ARRL’s Logbook of the World, physical QSL cards still serve a purpose.  Since I am but a humble newbie to the hobby, I wanted to get QSL cards of my own.  Coincidentally it’s the ARRL’s 100th anniversary and they had some appealing designs commissioned through a printing service.  To make my card a little more unique, I replaced their stock image with my family’s coat of arms.

Could it be better?  Of course, but it’s a start.  A real QSL card from me would have plenty of additional information all over the front.  I don’t know how common QSL card forgery is, or if it’s even a thing, so if you want the real deal, find me on the radio!
