I am a collector of QSL cards, however .
Times are changing but there are things that should not change.
As of 1 November 2013 I am no longer interested in receiving fully computerized QSL cards.
In my opinion a QSL card contains a personal message from one ham to another ham.
QSL cards with labels with many QSO's lose the personal aspect in my opinion.
The unnecessary, needless exchange of QSL cards also touches environmental aspects.
So I have tried to find a policy to give the QSL card exchange that value that it deserves.
If you have any suggestion to make the work out of this policy more complete please let me know.
