I would like to have a "forever" post card stamp issued by the Post Office.  It would be nice to have the stamp honoring Amateur Radio.  The last stamp for ham radio was issued in 1964.

Here is my suggestion for us hams.  Let's send our QSL cards to the Citizen's Stamp Advisory Committee.  This committee advises the Postmaster General on new stamps. 
Send your QSL card to this address:

Citizen's Stamp Advisory Committee
475 L'Enfant Plaza, Room 3300
Washington, DC, 20260-3501

I wrote a personal message on my QSL:
Dear Committee,
Please consider a new Amateur Radio Stamp.  It would be a "forever" post card stamp for domestic, and an international "forever" post card stamp.  These two stamps would commemorate ham radio and ham radio operators.  The last stamp that honored Amateur Radio was issued in 1964.
Thank you,
Joe Cotton
