QSLs welcomed direct and particularly reports from SWLs which will always be answered. SWLs please make sure you provide your complete and accurate address.
A self addressed envelope is helpful but nothing more. I send logs to LoTW on a weekly basis.
I do not send logs to eQSL and please note that after the 1st February 2016 I will no longer respond to Bureau cards for contacts made on or after this date. Direct cards will be answered direct on the day they arrive.
