One of the most enjoyable aspects of Ham radio is to exchange QSL cards. A QSL card is a verification of a contact with another amateur. Here are my cards that I send out and in return have received hundreds of cards from around the world.

Please note: I QSL 100% but if you mail me a card without a return envelope and postage in the form of Canadian stamps (addresses from Canada) or U.S. green stamp ($1 from U.S. or $2 other International countries) then I will QSL via the bureau.

Please go to QRZ! for my current address information.




Some cards received are quite colourful and represent the country from which they come. Here is one sent to me from Dov 4Z4DX celebrating his DXpedition to Nepal.


5A7A was a DXpedition of mostly German hams to Libya. I made 6 contacts with them on 5 different bands. All CW except for one RTTY.

Ray G3NOM was in Thailand when I worked him on 15 meters using SSB and RTTY.

A crew of German and Mexican hams operated XF4DL. I made 3 contacts with them.

Cambodia was a rare one for me but one contact was all that was needed to get this colorful card.

I worked these hams from the U.S. and Canada visiting Tuatai ZK1MA in the North Cook Islands.

Here is one from 5X1T in Uganda, a small country in central Africa. This was a voice contact using SSB.


Others, while maybe not so colourful, are equally appreciated. This one from VR1O comes from the Gilbert Islands in the Pacific ocean near Kiribati, 4000 Km south west of Hawaii. This contact used CW.


My only card from Vietnam was a rare catch. 3W9HRN was worked on 20 Sept 2001 on 15 meters SSB.

CN8WW is a regular station from Morocco and with its powerful signal is an easy one to work. I have worked them many times but this card was from the 1999 CQ WW WPX contest.

John's ON4UN is a familiar Belgium station for contesters and I have worked it many times.

It's always fun and exciting to work the rare ones like Dave V73UX in the Marshall Islands located in the South Pacific northeast of Australia.
