QSLing Today

(Please note: I have created this Ham Radio Deluxe Logbook Analysis page-copying the HTML version from my copy of Simon Brown's HRD, a program I can not praise enough. I am sharing the data to track my own status in the long quest for 300 countries worked, but also to show the dilemma faced by Amateur Operators today. LoTW, eQSL and Mail QSLs are all valid channels to receive a QSL card confirming a successful QSO, however neither ARRL's LoTW or eQSL recognize each other, one placing irrelevant emphasis on mail or LoTW only, and the other-eQSL- not accepting mailed cards and non Authenticated eQSLs. Authentication is achieved by faxing or emailing a copy of the Amateur's license to eQSL. (I suspect there may be some reluctance abroad to turn over any personal documentation to the eQSL program) Perhaps in time these issues will be worked out. Recently, CQ Magazine has announced acceptance of authenticated eQSL prints along with cards received by mail as credit toward CQ Awards. In the meantime, we continue to make good DX contacts and this is as good a presentation as any to show achievement in DX worked. The list will be updated monthly. Good luck and good DXing! Mike- KB3PDR-November 2008)

This page replaces the previous editorial link "The QSL Blues" with this more specific picture of my DX and QSL experience. As a summary of a survey conducted over almost two years, around 10% of stations worked probably will not QSL. If you have an envelope at your local ARRL Bureau- you will get a lot of QSLs you probably gave up on. Bureaus and Managers are quite diligent in serving the QSL process. All contacts presented here, have received $2US to assist return post. A good tool to check a possible poor QSL responder is the eQSL QSLs Waiting page. DXpeditions often have a huge back log upon returning home. All will eventually QSL, often with very nice documents. Amateurs the world over are for the most part a terrific fraternity. A heart felt thank you to all who have QSLed.

Building this page

The content of this HTML page may be copied using the source function on your computer. Once in your HTML editor clear out my data from the table and enter your own.(if you use my little blinking light gif, you would need to find and upload a gif image to fetch- otherwise the box will be empty) Since there is no database program to enter the data, you will have to study the table to see where each bit is entered-country, call etc. Entering your data into an Excel program and maintaining a growing alphabetized list would be one solution. Ham Radio Deluxe configured to my FT-857D does this automatically during the logging process. When the analysis option is selected, it can be saved as an HTML document and uploaded to your web site. (or kept as an HTML file to view on your browser only.)Working in the HTML document can be tedious but its a great way to learn how web tables work. Managing an up-to-date spread sheet of contacts and QSL status adds much to the quest for the Big 300.
