Maybe the fraudulent award seeker should just buy a good printer and make his 
own from internet images.  Society in general has become suspicious and 
security minded.


I dont think eQSLs of any kind are likely anymore fraudulent.  They are a 
reflection of todays technology.  Not long ago sending a card in the postal 
mail was the only way.  Realistically what would make the otherwise honest ham 
become dishonest because fax, email, or internet eQSLs are now possible.  
Answer, nothing would.  And I think that fact is slowly dawning.  Three years 
ago only eQSL.cc acknowledged their own confirmations.  Now the list of those 
accepting various electronic QSLs is extensive.


And why not............we put in our time, learned our theory, CW tests too 
till recently.  We are honest individuals who wouldn't want an illgotten 
certificate on our wall.  I believe hams are honest hard working ethical 
people, deserving of the colorful little piece of paper that says well done.
