Social Media Killed the Radio Calling Card
« on: February 22, 2019, 1511 UTC »
Somewhere in between a business card and a message in a bottle, here’s a concept to boggle the millennial’s mind. Long before we were friend requesting on Facebook, following influencers on Instagram and instantly communicating with strangers around the world by simply typing in their social media handles – there was the radio calling card… aka the QSL card.
