After being very active as teen on various club stations (HA5YAB, HA5KFJ, HA5KAS, HA5KBM) and then making some 30 years pause, in 2011 I finally reactivated and got my license on 5th July.
I am member of the Haros Radio Club HA5HRK.
Since I managed many QSLs during my earlier activity, and I also consider some "green" aspects as well, now I am no more interested in paper QSL any more. I am not member of the Bureau. Instead, I prefer eQSL and LOTW.
To start the new call, practically unprepared, a leight-weight, last-minute "mini-xped" has been attended to Cyprus as 5B/HA5SE from 14 through 24 July 2011. That is why nobody heard about HA5SE that time and why there was no registration path to find about the only one week old station ;) . Rig, controller, programs were all unknown for me because the rig has arrived the very day before leaving for Cyprus (many thanks to HA5UY). At last, with very limited time schedule, 1798 QSOs have been logged using the IC-718 100W on CW/SSB and 70W on RTTY, on 15 and 20m using a dipole antenna. After returning, at last I completed the registration to QRZ.COM, eQSL and LOTW.
Update on 19.08.2011: to meet the unexpected high demand on paper QSL about my Cyprus activity, I changed my mind and decided the following process. Still no bureau membership. sorry. And my preferred way still remains eQSL and LOTW. However, of course, direct QSL is available if SASE received. Without SASE, if requested, I send my QSL from globalqsl.com via your bureau. You can notify me about your need of my paper QSL via eQSL ("PSE paper QSL" or similar note), via email, or per post. Of course, I also receive and reply cards from globalqsl members. Sorry for your inconvenience due to my previous information.
Update on 10.03.2012: from now on, I also receive QSL cards via the Buro. Of course I continue to send QSL card if requested. Still no need to send a card to me, it is enough (and also much faster and cheaper) to drop a note via eQSL or send an email.
Update on 14.08.2012: this year again, I will be active from Cyprus between 15 and 28 August. All contacts will be uploaded to eQSL and LOTW soon after my returning home. Although from my last years xped still I have a backlog of about 200 Cyprus cards to send out via bureau, I still promise to answer all QSL requests in the following months ;) . Since I don't collect QSL cards, you can simply request paper cards from 5B/HA5SE via OQRS at https://secure.clublog.org/logsearch/5B/HA5SE , or any of the other possibilities listed above.
Update on 27.08.2012 from Cyprus: unfortunately, in spite of all my efforts, I could not activate RTTY from here this year. In fact, I had much more technical problems as in last year, some of them overgrew me, sorry. (well, in fact, most of them ;) )
Update on 11.02.2013: adding the Online QSL Request (OQRS) link for the home callsign HA5SE : https://secure.clublog.org/logsearch/HA5SE
Update on 12.03.2013: address change.
Update on 28.06.2013: this year again, I will be active from Cyprus between 29 June and 16 July. At last, using my own FT-847, a 4-band Dunax GP, and a home-grown Computer Interface to the Rig, utilizing a PIC18F4550. Confirming via eQSL, LOTW, OQRS, buro, etc, as above.
