QSL Information & Download Advice
During on-air activities we are only rarely asked for a QSL card; so in June 2015 we introduced our digital, self-service, "EeZee" QSL Cards and Certificates which all contacts may download and print. Neither of these have details of individual QSOs: that avoids us having to compare logs and fiddle with information that is time-consuming and a bit redundant nowadays. The recipient's callsign can be added to the QSL Card or Certificate before or after printing.
Downloading and Printing EeZee QSL Cards & Certificates

- Click on the appropriate filename in any Downloads List to open the image online (this may be slow), Then right click on the image and select 'Save Link As'. You will then (normally) be asked for a location; you can also rename the file if you wish.
- Alternatively, use the down arrow on the right to download it.The image will be saved to whatever folder you have set up on your computer.
From an on-screen image

Printing an EeZee QSL Card or Certificate
Printers and computer print/graphic applications usually have automatic features which usually make the task of printing easy (but not always). If you do have difficulties getting a print at the right size send us an email and we will try to provide an alternative image. However, it isn't possible for us to give individual advice on how to set up printers, software, or help with other IT issues.
- For a postcard sized print use a smaller image (e.g. 1800x1200px printed at 300dpi) should be about right.
- For an A5 sized use a medium sized image (e.g. 2400x1600px printed at 300dpi) should be about right.
- Use the largest image size (e.g. 3600x2400px printed at 300dpi) for A4.
- Using a lower DPI (e.g 72) will result in a larger print size, viewable from a greater distance.
- A higher DPI (greater than 300) may give a smaller 'sharper' print, but this depends on your printer.
If you only require a medium resolution print start wil the smaller image (1800x1200px) and let your software resize it to your preferred print size.
For best results use good quality glossy or semi-glossy paper, preferably 80gsm or heavier.
