QST, QST: Because I own a web design company I have access to excellent graphic talent. I like having a custom QSL card (below) designed by one of our graphics people. Hams have asked "Can you make me one?" And so we've been doing that on an ad-hoc basis.

Well, we decided to formalize the business and have rolled out RadioQSL.com and it has met with great success. If you'd like a nice QSL card at a very reasonable price, do check out the website.

If you are blind here is a copy of the Repeater List in a plain text file that will be easy for your screen reader to use: Click here (If you right-click and choose "Save Link As" you can download the file.)

If you would like me to set you up with your own domain, website, and email address, I wrote a few notes on what you need to do first. Click here to get these instructions.

"I am often asked how radio works.
Well, you see, wire telegraphy is like a very long cat.
You yank his tail in New York and he meows in Los Angeles.
Do you understand this?
Now, radio is exactly the same, except that there is no cat."
