Sometimes simple is better …

KG5JQT ham radio cartoon QSL by N2ESTSusan, KG5JQT, is a cat lover, so she wanted simply cats on her QSL: “Yellow tabby cat sitting operating ham radio. Headphones on, one paw on straight key, other paw holding mike. View is from behind, showing back of cat. Maybe show a kitten playing with her dangling tail.”

I love visual puns, so when I saw that the “Q” in Sue’s call sign could look like a cat and its tail, I simplified it further. Sue’s response: “Very inventive! I like it!”

So did I. In fact, so did my wife, Gail, N2ART. We have two cats, and Gail wants one of them incorporated into the “2” in her call when I finally get around to drawing her QSL card.

This is one of the very few QSLs I did not sign — but only because I couldn’t find a place to hide my call sign that wouldn’t spoil the design’s simplicity. In my opinion, simple is almost always better.
