Confirmation

I feel like this is a milestone: I got my first QSL card!

In the days before computerized logs and log matching services, amateur radio enthusiasts exchanged these postcards confirming contact. Older and more experienced hams have stacks of these from all over. This is the first in my own collection. I guess it’s time for me to print some of my own to send out!

“QSL” is a ham shorthand code that means “I confirm receipt”. And yes, I fixed my log so it matches what’s actually in my handwritten logbook, which is close to what he has in his log.

So yeah. Thanks, George KM4LZM! A big salute to ya!
