QSL policy:

Qsl via DIRECT is OK

Qsl via BUREAU is OK

I am a LoTW user and qso's are loaded daily

I don't accept eQSL's since they are not valid for any credit

I don't use any form of web logging such as HRD, QRZ, etc.

I don't accept money of any kind. If sent, it will be returned back. NO GREEN STAMPS, NO IRC'S, NO GOLD BARS, NO DIAMONDS OR ANY OTHER KIND OF MONEY for my qsl! It's a shame to transform our wonderful hobby into a boor form of commerce!

Remember that:

Ham radio is a hobby, not a business!

and that:

The qsl is not a merchandise!

and of course:

The final courtesy of the QSO is the QSL!

Why should I pay for someone's card and the other should not?

Remember that if you are direct only and you're asking $$$/IRC for your qsl, then for you, and only for you, I will be direct only as well and I will ask $$$/IRC for the same exact amount you're asking for.

And please, don't tell me the fair that you, being a simple station living in a common country, need a qsl manager, or the fair that you are the qsl manager of yourself, or that DX'ing is expensive. That won't wash! What do you want others to pay to you, even a cappuccino and a brioche? If you cannot bear the cost of your own qsl's and their delivery then change your hobby, since this is probably not for you!

The most shameful thing that I've ever seen is the exhibition of a photograph of someone's station showing tenths of thousands of dollars worth of shiny new radio equipment (not counting the antennas) and the cheek to ask for green stamps, IRC's and even envelopes, and the arrogance they use to ask them as if it would be their divine right! No other words are necessary.

The only exceptions to the aforementioned QSL policy will be:

  • Qsl managers for DX'peditions
  • DX activities in rare entities
  • Stations living in really poor countries that don't explicitly ask contributions or that ask them in a very polite manner
