Please follow my QSL instructions:
USA - In all cases, a Self-Addressed Stamped Envelope (SASE) is REQUIRED for a reply.
DX - I REALLY prefer LOTW. If you send a card with a self-addressed envelope (SAE) and $2.00 (postage rates increased on 1/22/12) or 1 new-style IRC (expiring on 12-31-2013), you should receive a card back quickly. Bureau cards are a very low priority for me and they can take years to arrive. If you are in a hurry, please send direct. I do not participate in eQSL programs.
LOTW - All QSOs are uploaded weekly to LOTW. This includes all QSOs made since 1/2000 and selected earlier QSOs. In addition, I have uploaded the following operations:
AA4V/KP2 (2001) 4X/AA4V (2003, 2006, 2007, 2008) KH6/AA4V (2004, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012) PJ7/AA4V (2004) FS/AA4V (2005) V26AAV (2005) and 4X0V (2007, 2008), AA4V/VP9 (2009, 2010, 2011).
I have paper logs for operations before 2000 includingWA3JDA, WB4SJG, WB4SJG/6Y5, AA4V/VP2K, AA4V/6Y0, 4U1ITU (mostly dates in late 1980's), AA4V/XE2, HV3SJ (July 12, 1971), G0/AA4V, ON/AA4V, AA4V/KL7, AA4V/VE1 and AA4V/VE7.
