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 or DIRECT. If you send a card with a self-addressed envelope (SAE) and $2.00 (postage rates increased) or 1 new-style IRC (expiring on 12-31-2017), you should receive a card back quickly. Bureau cards are a very low priority for me and they can take years to arrive and further years for me to answer via bureau If you are in a hurry, please send DIRECT. I do not participate in eQSL programs.
LOTW - All QSOs are uploaded at least 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, 2015) PJ7/AA4V (2005) FS/AA4V (2005) V26AAV (2006) and 4X0V (2007, 2008), AA4V/VP9 (2009, 2010, 2011).
I have paper logs for operations before 2000 including WA3JDA, 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.
My other interests include: Cars (especially Corvettes), airplanes (I'm a FAA-licensed private pilot-Instrument rated), power boating, fishing, reading, photography and golf.
73, Steve AA4V
