Welcome to the Classic and Not So Classic Short Wave, Medium and Long Wave, and Utilities QSL Home Page!


Featuring classic and not-so-classic SWBC, BCB, and UTE QSLs from the 1950s-2000+s!


Coming to you via the World Wide Web from Marietta, Georgia, the home of Kennesaw Mountain, site of one of the major battles in the War for Southern Independence


This site has images of numerous QSL cards from non-amateur short wave stations that were popular in the 1960s to 2000s. I hope you enjoy reliving a bit of radio history as represented by this collection of antique verifications and those on my Classic Short Wave Broadcast page.


Photos of Phil Finkle, then SWL-W6 in Burbank CA, in 1954 and now K6EID in Marietta, GA in 1994.

Utilities (1950s through 1960s - oops, 1 from 1977!)

These Utility stations were the only way to log some countries other than amateur operators. They included point-to-point communications stations, overseas telephone/telegraph stations, press agencies (usually on RTTY but some on CW), airport HF communications stations, and other sundry services.

You can see that a number of them verified by filling out a typewritten form that I typed (one-fingered just as I am typing this!) on my old trusty Royal typewriter that all too obviously needed a new ribbon. I guess (to paraphrase AL Gore) that I invented the prepared QSL - ha ha!

It is amazing that these folks would take the time to respond to these reports as their mission was really limited but, I guess, it's just human nature to see how far you can be heard!
