New QSL cards received and confirmed

Received new QSLs from a bureau today. Wrote and sent back via bureau 39 QSOs today (ooh):

  • K0DEQ, K4SHQ, KD4MZM, W4A (N4BFR/W4TI), KA5WRL, WA5VGI, K9QVB
  • DA0HQ, DJ2SEA, DL2ARD, DL2KMK, DL2MIJ, DL5AXX, DH5FA, DO5GV, DO5RV, DH6YMC, DK6XY,DF9DH
  • ES5QD
  • F4HGZ, F4GYM, F6GCP, F5GPE
  • IW1FRD, IU2CIQ, I3PVE, IZ7SIA
  • OE3RTB, ON5AV, ON5DC, ON6NG
  • PA0ZH, PE1CPJ, PD1DN, PY2AF, PA3CWQ
  • SQ6JFR, SQ9BZN

Took me almost 2 hours of handwriting – that’s just 20 Qs per hour!! I also noticed that most of the Qs have been already confirmed via LotW so a paper card was probably not really necessary. Still, nice artwork and good memories, so thank you everyone for your QSL cards!

Also thank you CR2X for confirming all of our QSOs for over the last 3 years.

P.S. If anyone is missing a card from me – drop me a line to {my callsign}@gmail.com

UPD: 2015-08-26 QSL cards reached outgoing bureau in Ottawa, being sorted and now en-route to destinations

73!

Fresh QSLs received from a bureau today

QSL cards received and answered

Fresh QSL cards in the mail today – all received direct and to be confirmed direct via Canada Post mail tomorrow morning:

What’s really puzzling me is that most of the QSL cards I receive recently were for digital modes. Before, most of my QSL cards came from my CW correspondents. Generally speaking, I would generally expect a modern digital mode like JT65/JT9 to be confirmed via LOTW…  Still, it’s a thrill discovering a familiar size envelope in the mailbox: it’s like a box of chocolates -you never know what you’re gonna get.

W1AW portable 6 in the log

Just worked W1AW/6 active from Pacificon 2012 in Santa Clara, CA! Finally got W1AW in the log – now need to exchange QSL cards!
