The Great Inter-Git Postcard Project

  1. Sort of like a chain post card!

  2. Sounds like a good thing to be doing!

    I rarely send postcards but being a radio ham do exchange QSL cards with other radio hams around the world, acknowledging contacts made. These are "specialist poscards" if you like, usually with pictures on one side. These are not generally sent directly by post but sent to a national "QSL bureau" where volunteers sort the cards and send them off to other QSL bureaux in other countries. Radio hams lodge a stock of SAEs at their own bureau, which are sent to them when filled. Which reminds me, I've got a pile to sort out and send...

    I posted some examples a few years ago:

  3. Even better, just google qsl card and click on "image".

  5. Great idea, and a great card. I'm a fairly regular buyer of post cards (new and old) but a never never sender. I buy them because I like the images.

    Have you just pioneered a "Postcard Sending and Receiving Circle"?
