Re: Emailed QSLs

In the past couple of days, I received a PDF of a QSL.  However, that QSL was accompanied with a note explaining that they were sending a card out via buro, using URE’s QD-URE service (create QSL designs on their site, upload ADIF files, and they print, sort, and ship the cards out for you).


One of the things the QD-URE service permits is downloading PDFs of the QSL cards that will be generated.  It’s a nifty feature, especially if you’re looking for confirmation that your custom QSL design actually works.  :)

Subject: [ARRL-Awards] Emailed QSLs


I am receiving emails with a picture of a QSL for a QSO.  This practice seems to be one used by ops on FT8.  As far as I know, such QSLs, while nice, are worthless for any award.  I am reluctant to send a reply QSL and tell the sender if he would like a QSL to please send one with sase.


I don’t need the QSLs.  I don’t chase the US counties award and I have 9-band WAS.
