Details/QSL info/Online log on II2MM website (2011 activity ONLY)
PSE note that entire 2011 log has been uploaded on LOTW.
The entire log of II2MM (2011) has been also uploaded on eQsl.cc using my IK2SOE account with a specific signature in comment field [ "Operating II2MM - Year 2011 ONLY - TNX QSO" ]
Other then this, due to many requests, I've applied today (05 Jan 14) to eQsl.cc as II2MM, so you should be able, now, to get the "right" eQsl.
Let me remember that BURO QSL is HIGHLY recommended, even if it takes more time, and, unless very particular cases, I will only REPLY your card.
Otherwise, if you hurry, choose de DIRECT way, but don't forget to include SAE + 2$. If you don't, either SAE or 2$, I will reply via BURO.

QSL REPLY RULES [IK2SOE] :
Due to the latest changes of postage costs and my application to LoTW and eQSL.cc, I will send, either via bureau or direct, my qsl FIRST only if the qso is an absolute new one (entity, band or mode).
Otherwise I will only REPLY following this policy :
In seguito ai noti aumenti delle tariffe postali ed al recente utilizzo di LoTW ed eQSL.cc, invier? la qsl per primo soltanto se il qso ? un new one assoluto, sia come entit?, che come banda o modo.
Diversamente invier? qsl solo in risposta come segue:
ABOUT LOG UPLOADING:
Please take note that I'm used to upload my log updates either on a daily basis or at last 48 hours after last QSO, unless I was in contest.
For contest operations, uploads are done after log checking at the end of the contest. It could take a few days.
If you do really hurry for a confirmation, email me.
NOTICE ABOUT E-QSL: For those who write on their qrz.com page "please no e-qsl", please take note that I upload entire portions of my ADIF log every time, so I have no time to waste for dropping out "unwanted" e-qsl. Thanks
AVVISO INERENTE LE E-QSL : A tutti coloro che espressamente richiedono sulla loro pagina di qrz.com di non voler ricevere e-qsl, ricordo che io abitualmente carico intere porzioni del mio log in formato ADIF e non ho tempo da perdere per escludere coloro che non la vogliono ricevere. Grazie.
Any other request? PSE e-mail me!
PSE PAY ATTENTION !!! : Sometimes, I am receiving via bureau QSL cards addressed to IZ2SOE.
Of course, this is NOT your fault, but PSE take note that Roberto DOES NOT use the bureau. If you like to send a QSL card to him, do it ONLY DIRECT . Postage to forward the QSL cards to him will never cause my bankruptcy, but it's a waste of time for me and you. TNX in advance for your kind cooperation.
ATTENZIONE PER FAVORE !!! : Ogni tanto, mi capita di ricevere via bureau le QSL indirizzate a IZ2SOE .
Ovviamente non ? colpa vostra, ma desidero ricordarvi che Roberto NON fa uso del bureau, quindi le QSL vanno inviate esclusivamente per via diretta. La spesa per rispedirgliele non mi mander? certamente mai in rovina, tuttavia considerate la perdita di tempo mia e anche vostra. Ringrazio anticipatamente per la vostra collaborazione.
