QSL Card Inserts

Do you send QSL cards for satellite contacts? You can help AMSAT by inserting a form describing AMSAT and providing membership information. Put one of these inserts in every QSL mailing and you will help other hams find AMSAT and you will help AMSAT to build new satellites. (QSL inserts updated March 2005.) Print the first page on the front and the second page on the rear. If using a duplex inkjet like the HP PhotoSmart series choose Properties, Features, Two Sided Printing and check the Tablet (not Book) box. Then just cut and use.
