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.
