QSL cards, digital or hard copy


So in the dim and distant past the only way to QSL was by actually sending a card, usually to a PO box. I am wondering if the Internet has had a big impact on this. Do people still send cards or are they emailed these days? What do FB members prefer?

Re: QSL cards, digital or hard copy


I have had a qsl card sent via email that has arrived before I had finished the qso with them, cant beat that!Printed it out and added to an online folder, sorted.
On the other hand you just cant beat a proper qsl card delivered weeks later by the postman.
I dont send a lot out any more but its still a buzz to get them on the mat, plus if you ever need to prove how many contacts you have had confirmed then a proper card is the only way.
Whatever you want really, its up to you

Re: QSL cards, digital or hard copy


EQSL has not yet really been taken up, FBDX offer email address' etc. for callsigns, but not many use them.

We have a PO box and that gets a fair amount of use, people still, at least at the moment, prefer sending cards by post. I'm not sure why I would have thought email the best option, I suppose a card in the post is something a bit more tangible.
