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's frustrating 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 live off the grid. I am in the process of accumulating equipment for an off grid solar installation. At present I have four 250w Sanyo HIT panels, a Midnite Classic 150 MPPT Charge Controller, and an Outback VFX3048E @ 50hz and still accumulating equipment.
On the 7th November 2013 I had the pleasure of working WB4VMP Seymour "SY" who was 97 years old and had been licenced for 75 years having acquired his licence in 1936.
I have recently acquired two 4 element LFA 6 Meter Yagis from InnovAntennas see their website www.innovantennas.com much appreciation is extended to Justin G0KSC for his help in my purchase. These yagis have been assembled which was very easy (if in doubt about anything just shoot an email to Justin and he will promptly answer) and will be stacked and fed with a power divider with Ecoflex or WestFlex low loss coax. In the meantime listen for my beacon on 50.007 mhz.
