KXB - Rick at Lake Vermilion, Minnesota USA


Here is a collection of QSLs I have sent out over the years. Please take a look at Special QSLs too.

The silver and black card is from 1962. I thought it was pretty sharp.

When I got back on the air from Arlington, Massachusetts in 1970, I used a Heathkit HW-16 and windowsill vertical antenna.

We moved to Minneapolis in 1977. By that time, I had upgraded to a Heathkit HW-101 and ground plane antenna on the roof. Later, I purchased a new Ten-Tec Omni C, Series D. I still have that rig.

I do not have a copy of my original WNAPN novice QSL card, but these two cards with the guys carrying the canoe have the same picture. I like to think thats me in the front.

Using an early Apple Macintosh computer, I made these home-brew cards. I still prefer a Mac to a PC,

but virtually all ham radio software is written for a PC. So I use a PC in the shack.

Thats me with the dark hair and big glasses. I am smiling in the card on the left, because I just got a new Ten-Tec Omni V.

That is a 1974 MGB/GT. I even had a 2 meter rig in it.

We moved to New Mexico in 1993. What a beautiful place to live!

When we moved back to Minneapolis in 1998, I found a photo of my 1962 station.

These are my current QSLs, designed and printed by the qslfactory.com . I took the pictures, and Dave G8NTE designed the cards.

Here are the cards I use on GlobalQSL (www.globalqsl.com).

 

This isnt actually one of my QSL cards (but it could be). I took it on February 28, 2017 from our back yard in Coronado.

Its the crescent moon and Venus at sunset. I thought it was pretty nice.
