The time has come! The QSL collection housed in the Indianapolis Heritage Collection in Indiana needs a new home, a permanent home. Estimated at 50,000 and possibly higher, this collection of QSL letters and cards from all over the world covers a little over one hundred years of radio history, beginning in the year 1922. This massive assemblage is made up of QSLs, mainly from mediumwave and shortwave stations, though there are some from amateur, television, communication and FM stations. As a major historic collection, it is offered free to any location that is willing to house, organize, and care for this valuable historic collection, the world's largest in private hands.
