CWCOM QSL CARDS

CWCOM QSL CARDS

# INFORMATION FOR CWCOM QSL CARD ( PLEASE COPY AND PASTE THIS TEXT TO YOUR NOTEPAD FILE or THE WHOLE LOT TO YOUR MS WORDS FILE

INTRODUCTION

Why do amateurs in general = use morse code , collect morse code qsl cards , abseil , bungy jump , canyon , body surf , rock climb , scuba dive , etc. = can these people really explain it themselves ? my thoughts are " if it aint broke dont fix it " and i enjoy morse code and I am quite happy to send / receive morse code qsl cards , even more so when such cards cost almost nothing to make myself as " HOME BREW " and cost almost nothing to transfer by upload / download when using a FREE internet program called TEAMTALK5. ( Team Talk 5 download URL at end of this information ).

Qsl cards are collected by " Shortwave listeners " by " Morse code or TYPING TEXT operators on CWCOM who do not have an Amateur radio License " by " Licensed Amateur radio operators whether on CWCOM or from On Air radio contacts " = anyone can use and enjoy CWCOM ( download URL at end of this information )

# So ( your ?? ) CWCOM QSL CARD = home brew card easy or as complex as is your want = so cheap to make , so cheap to send / receive , one home brew Master Copy can be used to make multiple " one off " copies , and if you cant send one intelligent morse code word you can still send / receive a CWCOM QSL CARD by typing text on the CWCOM window ( ?? learning to send / receive morse code with CWCOM OPS , our pleasure )

# This is my personally sent information and it is not a treaties on the MAKING of home brew QSL cards ( refer URL s by other CWCOM users at end of this information for more complex home brew cards ) ,my information here serves only as an introduction as to how to home brew a simple but pleasing to look at CWCOM QSL CARD using MS WORD / WORDPAD , both of which are commonly used programs .

# MY SUGGESTION FOR A HOME BREW QSL CARD FOR CWCOM USING MSWORD or WORDPAD ( INTERCHANGEABLE ) 

* SELECT A PHOTO or IMAGE TO BE COPIED AND PASTED ONTO MS WORD

( TEXT ONLY CAN LOOK NICE IF IT VARIES IN FONT / SIZE / COLOUR / BACKGROUND COLOUR etc. )

* OPEN MS WORD

* COPY THE PHOTO or IMAGE

* PASTE PHOTO or IMAGE TO MS WORD ( SAVE IT ) ( ie: QSL CARD #1 )

* DRAG SIDES OF IMAGE TO APPROXIMATELY SUIT POSTCARD RATIO AND SIZE ( SAVE )

* INSERT = TEXT BOX = SIMPLE TEXT BOX ( DRAG SIDES TO SUIT POSITION ON CARD)

* ENTER TYPICAL TEXT ( BUT FRANKIE DID IT HIS WAY ) ie:   

TO:

???? UTC

FROM:

MONDAY 29 AUG 2016

CWCOM CHANNEL 200

RX:: CW or TYPE TX: CW or TYPE

* JAZZ IT UP WITH FOINT VARIABLES = TYPE / SIZE / COLOUR / COLOUR BACKGROUND / BOLD / ITALICS / UNDERLINED / etc. 

* THE MASTER COPY DOES NOT FADE WITH USE ( A DISADVANTAGE WITH JPG MASTERS ? print a jpg. master to prevent deterioration of p.c. master ? )

 # View the following FOUR = MS WORD qsl cards made by myself ( VK2IAU John ) to show as examples:

TO ENLARGE THE CARD = CLICK MOUSE CURSOR ON CARD and HOLD DOWN Ctrl KEY and ROLL MOUSE WHEEL
