History / Biographical
Amateur radio, also known as ham radio, is the use of radio frequency spectrum for non-commercial exchange of messages. The activity was subject to international regulations and standards and required a license. A ham radio operator was required to obtain a call sign to legally identify oneself on air. Individuals sent personalized QSL cards to one another after they had made radio contact. A QSL card is a written confirmation of either a two-way radio communication between two amateur radio stations or a one-way reception of a signal from an AM radio, FM radio, television or shortwave broadcasting station. QSL cards (1950- 1962) were collected by Edward “Ed” Redekopp as a ham radio operator. Redekopp was interested in electronics and radio servicing and he was fascinated by the ability to contact other amateur radio operators around the world, including operators who didn’t speak English. At first, he communicated by key code (Morse code) and later by microphone. When asked about his hobby and its abrupt end in 1963, he said, “I had a family to look after, a job during the day, and it was too much – I spent too much time on the air, on the radio. I’d be up sometimes in the night, very rarely, but up to four in the morning sometimes, talking to Australians and New Zealanders. Well, as a working man, I had a family to look after, they needed attention.” QSL cards were donated in drawers. Cards in Drawer 1 are in files 2017.1045/008-014. Cards in Drawer 2 are in files 2017.1045/003-007. For more information about Edward “Ed” Redekopp and his hobby please refer to interview – P20180010001-006
