Almost all Amateur Radio Operators, then and now, use QSL post cards to complete their radio contacts with fellow “Hams”. Besides the station’s call sign, they generally include the date & time, band (or frequency) used and a note about the reception quality. If there is room on the card; the type of transmitter, power output and antenna are mentioned.
These post cards are just the right size to decorate the collector's “shack” walls - as reminders of a successful contact.
