Send Direct QSLs to my home QTH address in the US (shown above): US send SASE, International send SAE + USD2$
or 1 vaIid (stamped) new IRC (expiration 2017).
Bureau cards should be sent via KE1B to the US bureau, and will be responded via Bureau.
PLEASE DO NOT SEND CARDS TO NON-US BUREAU (PJ2, VP5, EA, 9H, etc.); THEY WILL NOT REACH ME.
Direct cards without stamp, 2$, or valid new IRC will be returned via Bureau.
BEST WAY TO GET A QSL, either Direct or Bureau is via Clublog!!
You can check the logs for your QSOs and request a QSL card ($2 direct or free via bureau) with the Online QSL Request below:
Feel free to combine QSLs for KE1B, W6NN, all of our DXpeditions, and our contest callsign K6MMM.
No need for multiple envelopes or stamps/IRCs. All logs are regularly uploaded to LoTW and eQSL.
BUREAU CARDS FOR REPEAT CONTACTS
I appreciate the many cards I receive via the Bureau. I will reply with a QSL card for all contacts with new stations,
and for repeat contacts on different bands or modes. It is not practical (or especially useful, for awards or other purposes)
to reply with a QSL card for every contact, particularly repeat contacts on bands and modes that have already been confirmed.
I will reply 100% to all cards sent direct, regardless of band or mode.

You will find me mostly on CW for DX and contesting (all bands), but I also enjoy RTTY, SSB and a good ragchew.
I especially like to work QRP when the conditions are right.
New for 2010 is a second tower for VHF, holding the 6m and 2m arrays:
The top-level photo is my 2005 Lamborghini Gallardo. The car is great for navigating the winding mountain roads here.
No, I have not drilled holes in it to install a mobile rig or antenna! You will find me mobile in my Chevy pickup (which no one wants to look at!)
Check out the pair of "Then and Now" photos, below. On the left, that's me operating my first station at age 16 in 1968 (WB2DLJ). Note thenow-classic Harvey-Wells T-90 Bandmaster transmitter on the left. In late 2010, I restored one just like it (who knows, maybe it's the same one)for use on 80m AM, and CW for "Classic Exchange" and similar nostalgic events.
73, and see you on the bands!
