View Full Version : QSLs while full timing

05-21-2008, 08:22 AM
I would imagine that I will wind up in many places that folks would like QSLs from for county hunting and they like while full timing.
I have had cards printed in the past but that's not a great option for a full timer with the locations changing.
So I will assume I would be better off to use a QSL card program of some sort to make the appropriate changes and print them myself on the road?
At one point I used QSL Maker I think it was called. OK but not great.
Anyone have any programs they could recommend?

I have a similar problem island hopping. When you move from island to island your QSL info changes. Next time I think I'll have nice cards printed with pictures and callsign, then have a place for two printed stickers. One will have the island info (island of the day, as it were) and the other will have the standard QSL info from the computer. Of course since I am not fulltiming I can wait till I get home to generate all the stickers.

Have you tried using eQSL? The link is www.eqsl.cc, I use it as well as LOTW. I have one account for my home QTH and a different account for the camp QTH in Freedom, NH (N1ORK/P). Some people have multiple accounts for all the places they've been to. It's alot cheaper and faster than regular QSLs, although the paper cards are usually nicer. May be worth a try to check them out.

I have and use a QSL probgram and Avery post cards

However I also had my pre-printed "Cheap QSLs" printed with a blank linke labeled "LOCATION" IT comes with my mailing address pre-printed. but I fill in the location either

Detroit @ Home, Or something like "Davision Michigan" or "St. Clair Michigan" or Las Vegas, Nevada or _______, _____ Depending on where I'm parked.

I have used eQSL but I kind of like the old fashioned way.
I don't really collect them myself at least on purpose.
I don't know why, just never did. I have a few hundred I guess that I have got over the years.
Maybe I will just find a program and change the location and print as required while there.
