Old School QSL

Apollo XV special even QSL

Old School QSL

Every once in a while we get a self addressed stamped envelope (SASE) for a special event that isn’t like the rest.

Once we received one with a QSL card and no signal report. I’ve also received several printed pages with QSL information from folks who don’t either keep a cardstock, don’t often hunt paper, or are awaiting cards due to recent changes (location, callsign, etc.). Occasionally we get SASEs from Short Wave Listeners (SWLs).

Today we received an “Old School QSL” in with the SASE. I felt that I should share it with everyone.

I’ve made two small changes to add reinforcement
