For fantastic Custom QSL cards have a look at www.printed.it As used by ZD7VC and many other ZD7 Stations as well as DX stations (and noteably Big Dx-peditions) right around the world. If YOU want fantastic looking QSL cards that other Ham Operators would love to have gracing their shacks then you'll need to contact Alfio - IT9EJW and send him the pictures that you want on your card and let him design you a FANTASTIC QSL CARD - Guaranteed you won't be disappointed!!!!
Don't just take my word for it though - see what the reviews on www.eham.net have to say!! Look for IT9EJW QSL's.
If you've also been the recipient of Alfio's beautiful artwork perhaps you too might like to post a review on www.eham.net - thanks.
Islands on the Air (IOTA) - could all stations who live on Islands please consider putting your IOTA reference number on your QSL cards.
To those of us who wish to collect IOTA numbers for awards or otherwise it'sfrustrating to find that this tiny bit of very important information is missing from the QSL card.
On the 16 January 2011 I worked KA5N who said that he'd never worked St. Helena Island (ZD7) in all of his 56 years of hamming. On the 3rd June 2012 I had the good fortune of having a 10 meter contact with I6TJD - Francesco who it turned out was 83 years old and had been hamming for 65 years and this was his first contact with St. Helena Island (ZD7).
I would be very interested to hear from Ham Operators who either have Solar installations to run their shack equipment or live off the grid or who work in the solar industry. I am in the process of accumulating equipment for an off grid solar installation. This Island is very remote and knowldge of the correct pieces of equipment needed is non existent except for what I can glean from the internet. I already have four 250w HIT Sanyo Solar panels with MC3 connectors. I need advice on the correct MPPT charge controller possibly one that won't cause RFI (if they do?).
I live on the Northern side of the Island on a sloping rock platau 3/4 of a mile inland and 1,011' ASL and have the sunniest location of the Island. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated no matter how big or small.
