QSL Card Photo Gallery
A QSL card confirms communication was established between two operators. In this case, between the team of operator's broadcasting from Palmyra, and whoever received their signal in another part of the world. It takes its name from the Q code (3 letter short hand codes used by radio enthusiasts), QSL, which generally means "I confirm receipt of your transmission".
At a minimum, the cards state where the signal was broadcast from, by whom, and on what date, with an area for the person receving the signal to write in or confirm their information. Beyond that, many cards also contain a logo or photo specific to the expedition, with listings of the team members, and in some cases, a summary of the trip and any noteworthy events that occurred.
They're a wonderful way to look back over the history of HAM radio, Palmyra, and the radio operators who have visited its shores.
