◄ QSLs of Papal missions

Papst Benedikt XVI.zoomThe Pope on pilgrimage - a perfect reason for radio amateurs to launch a special event station or even a diploma. Vatican Radio ("The Voice of the Pope"), too, confirms reception reports with a Papal QSL. Enjoy a great picture gallery!

◄ QSL/Verification stamps


Philippines - DU1HCX (1993)Exchanging QSL cards for a successful two-way radio communication of confirming a listener's reception report is a matter of courtesy - and would be quite expensive is every card was sent by ordinary mail. The QSL bureaus of the national amateur radio associations help to reduce costs by collecting cards and providing a regular collective mail service. Some organisations finance their QSL bureaus from the membership budget. Others issue QSL or "verification" stamps and sell them to their members. Every bureau card must be validated with such sa stamp. "Verification Stamps" were also quite commin in the early days of broadcasting. - Enjoy some further explanations and a nice picture gallery.

<-- Virtual Radio Art Museum

zoomOne would expect that communication and radio must have been an interesting subject for an artist's oevre. Quite the contrary. It was all but easy to collect the drawings, paintings and sculptures now exhibited in our virtual radio art museum. And some of the rooms are still almost bare. But perhaps YOU come across a work of art you'd like to "donate" to our museum? Join us on a guided tour from room to room.
