A couple more eQSL eDX100 endorsements – 20m and SSB.

Fun, simple program from eQSL.

I’m less than 1/2 the DX count with eQSL as I am with paper QSL cards, but it is still a treat.

Getting my QSLing Up to Date!

Making an effort here to get my QSLing up to date.  Unsing Global QSL http://www.globalqsl.com/ the vast majority of my DX QSLs should be caught up.  From the No Manager/No GlobalQSL/No Bureau courtesy information from GlobalQSL of the last roughly 1100 cards about 7 or 8 will have to be done here manually as directs.

While this takes care of my DX catch up, I am at least 400 cards behind on domestic QSLs.  I had been pretty good until until I bluntly just got a bit bored with the paperwork side of QSLing and let that side slip.

I do eQSLs as well http://www.eqsl.cc/ automatically as as much of a back-up log as anything, and about once every couple years I put up with the silly technical hurdles of LoTW and upload my logs there.

I’ll have to see about setting up a label printer and doing the domestic QSLs in arrears, so I can get back to even up.

BTW here are my current GlobalQSL card front faces.

My domestic cards are not all similar, as I often use a Lake Michigan Theme card I had printed up.

Another Bit of Wallpaper – eQSL eDX100

K9ZW eQSL eDX100 Award

K9ZW eQSL eDX100 Award

Though I had pasted the ARRL DXCC 100 country mark and am approaching something like 220-240 countries confirmed by QSL cards, for some reason the eQSL equivalent took a lot longer to earn.

Seems that many DX countries are doing eQSL but to with their authenticity confirmed. Without the confirmation they don’t count for eQSL’s awards.

I really should spend some time sorting out my QSL cards, LoTW, pending GlobalQSLs and get on the stick…..

K9ZW Winter QSL Effort

K9ZW Summer QSL Card

Seems I have really never tamed the QSL Card Monster. I have responded to all direct QSL card requests, but certainly have fallen way behind on doing my domestic QSL send-outs, logging QSLs and physically settling on a QSL storage system.

I also have a large number of DX QSLs to upload to GlobalQSL for Printing and Distributing.

K9ZW Four Picture QSL Card

As for eQSL, that is largely up to date, as I tend to use eQSL as my offsite log backup.

I’ll have to decide if futzing with LoTW (Logbook of the World) is going to happen, as I personally find the process annoying and unrewarding.

K9ZW Winter QSL Card

The QSL Card fronts in this post are few of the designs I use. I have another paper design, a couple GlobalQSL designs which are printed by GlobalQSL, and several eQSL designs depending on the QTH & Date of operations.

Guess it is time to knuckle down and get these QSL cards done!

Another Public Profile – but with Stats! – eQSL adds Member Public Profiles

eQSL has added Public Profiles for members.

The format to access these pages is http://www.eqsl.cc/Member.cfm?%5BCall Sign] with my page becoming: http://www.eqsl.cc/Member.cfm?K9ZW

Though it is another page to set up, as a great many of us already have a profile page at QRZ.com (Mine is http://www.qrz.com/callsign?callsign=K9ZW) the eQSL profile page is interesting as it can show statistics for your log uploads to eQSL.

Some of the possible stats are – band activity:

eQSL Profile - Band Activity

And Operating Modes:

eQSL Profile - Mode Profile

In my case it also shows the periods of Island operations and my Previous Call sign.

eQSL Profile - Related Accounts

Check it out and set your’s up!
