THE FINAL COURTESY OF A QSO IS A QSL ! If there's one adagio I stick to: this one is it. To me, there's is no excuse for any ham not to confirm a first band/mode slot with a QSL card, whether that be a "standard" or a contest QSO.
The vast majority of my QSLing is done via the QSL bureau which - whatever some may pretend - does a marvelous job. As most IARU societies run QSL bureaus, this service is available to most hams. Membership to one's national IARU society is something that goes without saying.
Please feel free to use my above indicated address if you want a QSL direct, SAE & current IRC are appreciated. Correct SWL reports welcomed.
