QSL Report: July-August 2015

Radio hobbyists love to show off their QSL cards. Here's a new tip for our readers. Have you considered a live digital slide show ?

Digital photo frames typically display photos directly from a camera's memory card. Digital photo frames display JPEG pictures on the screen, and most will display the photos as a slideshow, usually with an adjustable time interval. Some can also send photos to your printer.

Digital photo frames represent an advance on the old paper photo albums, because you don’t have to pull them off the shelf to look at them, and they’ll turn the pages for you! Digital photo frames are available in hi-res display with a anti-glare LED Backlit display, memory and in various sizes to fit your needs.

This is the ultimate photo viewing experience for your scanned QSLs, certificates or pennants, and will  provide a constantly changing view of your collection, displayed on the wall, shelf or bookcase.
To learn more about this innovative approach to view your collection, do a google search at for digital photo frames, or visit Amazon at for a large variety of models. You may also find them at your office or large size department stores.
