The QSL Card....At What Cost?
« on: May 16, 2015, 0046 UTC »
Things have changed somewhat for shortwave listeners in the last 15 years. With the disappearance from the bands of many international and domestic shortwave broadcasters, itís much harder now to gather together a large QSL collection.

(An article I wrote for the April issue of The Spectrum Monitor magazine).

Nice article, Rob!

It reminds me of many of the sleazy tricks to which we had to resort to try to coax a QSL out of a veri signer.
