QSL card historyOn this page you'll find an overview of my current QSL cards and the QSL cards I've used in the past.
As I'm more active on HF now I decided for two designs, one for HF/6m and one for VHF and up and satellite. As I wanted to make the cards more personal I used a lot of pictures of my own setup.
I made some improvements to the back side as I got really tired of writing my station setup on every card. On these cards I only have to mark off the equipment I used. Saves me a lot of time ;)
This is the VHF and up/satellite design. I use images of my portable satellite setup, the 2m and 70cm cross yagi antennas on the roof of my house, a picture of myself in the radio room and a nice image of the ISS.
Below you see the HF/6m design. Here I used images of my 6m HB9CV antenna on the roof of my house, a nice spectograph image, a picture of my GPM-1500 HF vertical antenna, an ionosphere image, my portable station setup, the picture of me in the radio room and a waterfall image of PSK31 signals.
From September 4-8, 2006 I was on Texel Isl. (IOTA EU-038) for a short holiday break and did some portable satellite operation. Below you can see the special QSL card I designed for that.
The front is a satellite image of Texel Isl. and on the back there is a photo of me with the portable station in action ;)
In May 2004 I applied for a new callsign, PH7AT. Mainly active on satellites I decided for a nice space image of the early stages of ISS.
The cards (of excellent quality) were printed by Max ON5UR.
In this period I was active only on 6m, VHF and satellite. I tried to reflect those interests with the selected images on the card.
I designed this card on an Atari ST home computer. The image was rendered using software I wrote myself which calculated interference patterns of two or more sine point sources (yes, math can be fun ;) ).
