QSL Cards of the Ham Radio Operators
Who Were Active in the Kingsport, TN Area Prior to 1980

Definitely UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Many cards which should be here are missing and some of the information may be inaccurate. If you know of cards that belong on here, please let me know. If you have any of the missing cards would you please scan them (100 dpi/actual size) and e-mail them to me. If you do not have a scanner, please either send them to me by snail mail or, if you are local, I will be happy to come by and pick them - in either case I will take good care of your originals and return them to you promptly.

NOTE: I have quite a few more cards on hand to be processed, and numerous others have been promised. Check back often for new additions.

There is no prejudice against newer hams here. My idea is to preserve the QSLs of the older hams before it is too late. There are some QSLs in the collection that are from nearby towns in northeast Tennessee or southwestern Virginia - these are operators who had a close relationship with amateur radio in Kingsport by way of club membership, net participation, frequent activity, etc.

Note: I blatantly plagiarized the idea for this page from Wayne W4HG!

Note: Many thanks to the following for generously sharing their QSL collections:  Ken AA4AA,   Paul AC4QZ,   Dick N4ARO,   Ted WB4BLN,   Bill K4CIA,   Larry K4CL,   David K4DR,   Barry W5GN,  Keith NA4E,   Eddie K4JP,   Dan N4ROA,   Carol K4SAF,   Jim AA4TN,   Wayland K4WS,  A very special thanks to Jim Welch, son of the late W4CBU, for contributing many cards from his father's collection.

Thanks and 73! - Don N4TN
