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.

NOTE: Added 8 July 2014
W100AW & W1AW QSL via Bureau

You may request to have QSLs from W1AW/x portable operations, W1ØØAW, and W1HQ, for QSOs made during
2014, delivered to you via the ARRL QSL Bureau system. BUT, you MUST have an account with the QSL
Bureau that is properly funded and ready to go.  We do not want to send cards to the volunteers 
working in the Bureau system which cannot be delivered.  Any cards that cannot be delivered will 
not be held or stored. 

NEW NEW -- Some operators have realized that because of the terrific activity levels we may be 
sending upwards of _1000_ QSLs just for W1AW operations to a single station.  So, realizing that, 
we have decided that the goal of QSLing via traditional means, is to make sure everyone can have 
one card from each week's operations.  This policy will limit the number of QSLs from W1AW portable 
operations to about 107 cards.  Not every QSO will be confirmed on the traditional paper QSLs.  
The paper QSLs also will not be able to confirm counties or grid squares.  All counties and grid 
squares will be confirmed in Logbook of the World.

The form for allowing bureau cards is found under Centennial QSO Party /QSLs Via Bureau.

Estimated cost for 107 cards is around $6.00 for box and postage. 

Please notify me if you are going to be receiving W1AW/# cards via bureau.



Last Card Shipment from Bureau - Received 12-MAY-2015.

Next Estimated Card Shipment To Stations - 22-MAY-2015 Actual (To stations with envelopes/postal credit)

All Warning Emails/Postcards Sent - 26-MAY-2015

Status: All Envelopes Received Have Been Mailed - 6-JUNE-2015

Last Mailing To Stations With Envelopes/Postage Credit - 6-JUNE-2015 (Any envelopes received after this will be mailed next cycle).

NOTE: If you expect cards and didn't receive any, please check your email account as shown on QRZ.com.

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 June 1, 2015. 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.
