QSLing

eHam.net Article: QSLing – N9EF puts it into perspective
– eHam.net is a Web site dedicated to ham radio (amateur radio).

Russ Roberts‘s insight:

Great article by Robert Mitilieri (N9EF).  The important thing is to respond to your contacts, whether electronically or through snail mail/buro.  If you don’t QSL, please tell your contacts before they spend a fortune on stamps.  Many hams have expressed their QSL preferences on their QRZ.com biographies.  As for my station, I always QSL via buro or snail mail.  I don’t have high speed internet in my location on Hawaii Island.  Aloha de Russ (KH6JRM).
