    In HF use it is considered a courtesy to follow up a radio QSO with a QSL card (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QSL_card). Today, much (most?) QSL activity is done on a paperless basis that saves a tremendous amount on postage.

    The ARRL runs an online QSL system known as Logbook of the World (LotW). It’s somewhat cumbersome to set up but all QSLs made via LotW count for all ARRL operating awards.

    The other major online QSL system is eQSL.cc This site is much easier to use than LotW and basically only requires you to set up an account like any other web site.

    HARC members may not be aware that a fair amount of QSL requests are posted to both of these sites for VHF and UHF work, even QSOs involving repeater operation.

    I’m posting to urge all active hams to create accounts on the sites and then start logging old and new contacts to them (most logging software has automatic interfaces to both sites). Both sites are free to use.

    Here are a few HARC call signs with QSLs waiting at, e.g., eQSL.cc:
    KE7TGI / WB7F
    KC1F (a LOT)
    W7GEM (a lot)
