QSL Cards arrived - a blast from the past

I've never played the QSL card game, where you send a card off to people you talk to on Amateur radio to confirm the contact. Recently an envelope arrived stuffed with QSL cards people had sent me in recent years.

Thanks Dmitry, UA0LQI (I think) in the Russian Far East. I remember when I was a kid listening to short wave I sent off to Radio Moscow and received a lovely QSL card back from them - my parents were appalled and thought I'd be tagged as a Communist for life!

Thanks Pierre F5GPE in Grenoble, France.

A charming design from VE3HMK.

These contacts are all from a period when I was pretty active on 20m PSK31.

Thanks to the VK2QSL Bureau, greatly appreciated.
