Does anyone have experience with printing out an eQSL and submitting it to ARRL in hardcopy form?  Just wondering if this anyone can tell me if I should waste my time. 73 Chris WO8USA

Chris,

The League will not accept hard copies of eQSL cards.

No matter who makes the on-line form for the QSL, an eQSL hard copy is still produced by the you and not the station you are wanting credit for.

The only electronic verification recognized by the League is that from the Logbook of the World.

"The League will not accept hard copies of eQSL cards."

There's a minor clarification required here.

If you print out a received eQSL, send it to the "sending" station, and get the licensee to either sign it or provide some other "identifying mark" (such as a "verified by W3HF" rubber stamp), then the eQSL will be accepted by the ARRL. It doesn't matter if you are the one that prints it out, as long as the printout is verified by the sending station. And the ARRL views a signature, or initials, or a "verified by" stamp as adequate proof.

That's really no different than the MRCs that the county hunters use. And it's the same as two situations I've run into, when I have volunteered to print a custom card for a station whose QSL I really wanted, but who didn't have any cards. I printed the card, mailed it to the licensee for verification and signature, and received a perfectly valid QSL back.

Of course, once an eQSL printout is mailed back and forth, and gets an original signature on it, you really can't call it an eQSL. It's just another paper QSL that happens to have been printed using the eQSL software.
