K8SIA - Licensed in 1960 as a teenager living in northwest Detroit, MI. I attended Detroit Redford High School, Albion College and the University of Michigan. I am active on all modes 160 M through 6M and mainly on CW and RTTY, but also other digital modes such as JT-65 and JT-9. I hold DXCC on all modes and hold 5 Band DXCC with 30/17/12 Meter endorsements. I dabble in most contests, just to have fun. I prefer to QSL via direct, bureau or LoTW. I do, however, upload my JT and PSK contacts to eQSL.cc (AG), but do not use the results.

Please let me know of any problems, postage due, etc. Most packs where verified by the Post Office and I want to be prepared the next time.
I prefer that you send cash/check to cover the mailing of QSL cards to you. However, if you MUST use envelopes, please DO NOT plaster your envelopes with first class postage stamps. Postal regulations prohibit stuffing envelopes and sending them first class. Only put one or at most two stamps on any envelope and enclose extra postage as loose stamps when sending in envelopes. See my comments below about cash credit versus envelopes.
Please put your call sign on any email or envelopes sent to myself or the bureau.
Postal rates went up in January, 2014. If you have envelopes on file with the W8 Incoming Bureau, be sure to verify the postage on the envelopes or the postage credit that you have with the bureau. This can be done by sending me an email and I will respond with the information. If you want to send additional postage or, as I prefer, a postage credit of several dollars, it can be mailed to me directly at my QRZ address or sent to the W8 bureau address.
I really prefer not having boxes of envelopes stored in the shack. If you are an active ham, please consider sending a cash amount to the bureau letter manager and let me handle the envelopes and postal amounts to maximize your mailings. Cash is not subject to rate increases and it is easier to store.
