Re: Self Printed QSLs for DXCC: an idea

Gilbert Baron

There are programs like Digisign that encrypt a signature and the are even accepted by sellers and government. This could be used to email a card and should be more than enough, even harder to forge than a real QSL postcard. This could be used but wonder with LoTW available to all why it is needed is another question. It still would be a neat way to sed a valid QSL like we used to get in the kai;.

Currently, self-printed QSLs (stations send you an image that you print yourself) are a not acceptable for DXCC credit.

There is a technical, and easy, solution to solve this:  place a QR code on the QSL, which contains a LoTW-key-encrypted QSO.  An example graphic is shown (ignore the code itself, just an example.)
If such a self-printed card was sent to the DXCC desk, it could be verified easily.
