Cards are being printed for my July 2013 KI1U/VE9 IOTA NA-014 operation. If you've sent a card please stand by for the reply as it takes some time to get them back from the printer.

Portable satellite operations - I carry gear for the FM birds as I travel. I upload all QSO's from portable operations to LOTW, but if you need a QSL just send one with an SASE.
DX Operations - I have operated as KI1U/VE9 (NA014/NB003), PJ2/W5MPC and CT8/KI1U. Click the call for log search. All QSO's from these operations have been uploaded to LOTW. If you need a card QSL via the bureau or the home call. Direct QSL requests require 2 greenstamps or SASE.
Upcoming Operations -
8P Barbados - Multi operator entry for the 2013 ARRL 10 meter contest. December 9-16, 2013. Before the contest I'll be operating as 8P9IU. During the contest the call will be 8P8T.
QSL info : via bureau, direct (please include SASE or greenstamp), and LOTW. I do not use EQSL.
Operating as PJ2A, working the pile up with a straight key!
Cards for KI1U/VE9 will be going out soon.
Don't forget the best thing you can do to promote Amateur Radio is to be an elmer. Share your knowledge, experience, wisdom, and the lessons you have learned with other Amateurs.
Hope to hear you on the bands 73 es gud DX!.dit dit.
