I do not use any QSL Bureaux .��� �I am a member of the Royal Signals Amateur Radio Society (RSARS 1372.).���Passed 20 w. p.m. morse test wiith 71 Signals Regiment using straight key) ).���� ��Preferred mode is CW, using a bug. Mainly QRV on 6 & 4M.��� � The only DX I chase these days is on 6M. (DXCC # 140 - 1993. 208 DXCC cfmd. on that band all CW/SSB). Further progress is slow.���So, the law of diminishing returns applies.�Ah well,� The wheel has turned full circle & I'm back to being,(mainly) a S.W. L. once more after more than sixty years of, "hamming it up ".�� That's life; so ist es das leben; c'est la vie ! Who cares anyway? It's only a hobby,after all !
