Some QSL calling cards are undated.
A QSL is generated when a first-time contact between two amateur radio operators (hams) or stations occurs. It is an acknowledgement of the listening and is usually the size of a postcard. Each card includes the call sign of its sender along with date and time of the call, equipment used to make the call, and any words or illustrations that describe the ham and his/her home. QSL means, "Do you confirm receipt of my transmission?" or "I confirm receipt of your transmission."
Subject Terms:
