David Young, AE5DY announcedÂ QSL Query the first Google Glass application associated with the hobby of amateur radio. It is basically used to look up FCC call sign information, primarily for use in filling out QSL cards.
Currently, the information returned by QSL Query includes the name, address, and license class of the person associated with the submitted call sign.
Google Glass displays information in a smartphone-like format, and user can communicate with the Internet viaÂ voice commands.
Google Glass diffusion is very limited due to the high cost but certainly, this is another demonstration of how Amateur Radio’s experimentation is always up to date with new technologies and communications media.
