Received my new QSL Cards from UX5UO

After a long, long time without QSL cards, I finally took a few minutes to order some QSL cards from Gennady, UX5UO via http://www.ux5uoqsl.com. Being lazy and lacking a creative bone in my body, I left it all up to Gennady. He showed me some samples, and I ordered a batch.

Sure, some people take pride in the development of their QSL cards, and rightfully so. On the other hand, I could care less what mine look like. Anybody who receives one isn’t going to look at it more than once. There is nothing I could put on a QSL card that would really pique the interest of the recipient. They simply want my confirmation of a QSO.

At any rate, I’ve got cards now and I’m very happy with what I’ve got. For those of you who have sent me a QSL card in the past hoping for a confirming QSL, they’ll be on their way this month.

Below is what the front of the card looks like. Gennady does great work, and my inability to relate what I really wanted on a card as well as my inability to provide him with any graphics really doesn’t do his service justice. If you check out his website you’ll see some very high quality, unique QSLs. Incidentally, it was about a 5-6 week turnaround time from the time I ordered to the time I received them.
