QSL cards

One of the pleasant moments accompanying amateur radio activities comes when we receive so-called QSL cards that verify radio contacts with the counterparts. A package of cards arrived to my home from the card exchange bureau of the Japan Amateur Radio League last week.

Though there is no rare "DX" card in it, there are some interesting or colorful cards from foreign countries.


K7DJO. This was one of the three North American stations that called me on November 5, 2011, when I operated from Cape Futtsu, Chiba, in Minamiboso Quasi-National Park, World Flora Fauna number JAFF-048. I am pleased to find the following comment of John, the operator, on the reverse side:

"Thank you for the DX QSO. I enjoyed seeing the photograph posted on 73"

I know from the card that this station was a modest one with a rig of 100 watt out and a vertical antenna. I was running 50 watts and using a loop antenna.




I worked these stations on October 13, 2011, from Suga Island, Toba City, Mie, in the Ise-Shima National Park area, WFF JAFF-012. As the distance from the Suga Shima Lighthouse to the inn I stayed and set my rig is less than 1,000 meters, the operation was also good as an activation of the Amateur Radio Lighthouse Society number JPN-596.

The five watt output (QRP) CW signal of Fred, HB9DAX, was not so difficult to copy, making the contact a memorable one for me.
