First licenced UK 1974 as G8IKF after many years spent as a SWL. Subsequently obtained G0WZM after passing the morse examination - one of the last of the G0s.
Retired to Mauritius in 2001 where I first worked under a reciprocal call of 3B8/G0WZM and eventually 3B8IK circa 2002/3.
Please note that we have no local bureau facilities here on the island so all QSL is direct to my home address. Postage is expensive and not completely reliable. I will try to honour all paper QSLs I receive directly from the originating station. I will reply to SWL reports likewise.
It would be greatly appreciated if those requiring cards direct through the mail could supply a self addressed envelope of sufficient dimensions to accomodate a standard EU/UK postcard That way I can not possibly get your postal address wrong and there's a fair chance my card will fit. Please do not send IRC. It has little value here.
Addendum: I am still receiving QSL/requests for cards relating to QSOs dating from 2012 and prior! If I am able to uncover records of this age I will of course reply. However the sad truth is that over the years, some of my computer based logs have suffered the ravages of power outages, lighting storms and man made voltage spikes. More recently I have tried to ensure that all logs are backed up to eQSL.
Let us not waste resources by offering cards, stamps, SAEs etc through the surface mail services without first checking that I am able to respond. Please Email me first if you need cards relating to communications of this vintage.
73 and thanks for reading
