I currently use Logbook of the World and eQSL to electronically confirm my contacts.  I wish the ARRL would accept both for DXCC, but they don’t, so LotW and physical QSL cards are the only way to get the League sponsored awards.

However I will gladly mail a physical QSL to anyone who sends me one.  No SASE is required (and in fact will simply be returned unused with my QSL).

Here is a copy of the front of my QSL

    Hi Bob,
    You were my first contact after getting my General License. I was WB4UFJ at the time (around 1971) living in Washington, NC. I recall that you were living in Huntsville,AL. I have the old log book somewhere packed away. I moved to Ohio and had to get the 8 call. Glad to see that you are still around and kicking. Nice web page.

      Hi John,

      What a wonderful surprise to run across you again. I wonder how you found my blog? I found your QSL card and just completed a post with a copy of the card. Check: http://wb4son.com/wpblog/?p=823

      I hope we get a chance to bump into each other on the air soon!

  3. Hi Bob,
    last days I was looking for Rig control cable IC-7400 . Than I found one here on the Web page from a dealer. Shortly later I found pdf on Digital Modes not to use those with Prolific Chip which causes a lot of trouble. Thank you ! I stopped the order right away. Minutes late I found this link:http://tickets.hrdsoftwarellc.com/kb/faq.php?id=39
    Would you agree to named two cables Mfg. Regards 73 DL6SAY Detlef

      Hi Detlef,

      I have been told by another ham (but don’t know from first hand experience) that the RT-System’s cables no longer work for applications other than their own (their rig programming software). Personally I haven’t had issues with after-market USB cables as long as they contain the FTDI chip, including the Icom cable that I use with several of my rigs. 73, Bob, WB4SON

    Hello Bob,
    Just heard you on 15 cw down here in Rock Spring, GA. You were s9 +30 at times, really booming in. Wonder what you are running for a rig and antenna these days?

      Hi Grady,

      I was running 100 watts (K3 barefoot) to a 450-foot diameter loop that ranges from 15 to 30 feet up in the trees. But I was seriously impressed by W0RW’s Pedestrian Mobile operation and think he wins the great signal award for 50 watts into a 10 foot whip — I can barely send CW while sitting at a desk, and he was walking up hill!

      If you need any WAS action from Rhode Island, let me know. I’m active on all bands and modes.
