Please don't call me Jim. My name is James, and that is what I go by.

NF8I QSL Info:

For fastest QSL service from NF8I, use the ClubLog OQRS Log Search to check my log and request your card.

QSL cards may be sent to me Direct, but please send Bureau cards via W3SQN. I also QSL via LoTW, and through eQSL.cc. I am also in the 3905 Century Club 40m and 80m Bureaux, as well as the the OMISS Bureau and NATA Net Bureau.

I love to collect QSL cards, so I send QSL cards to nearly every ham I contact. I usually send cards direct within a week of the QSO, unless the ham's profile page here on QRZ.com says to do otherwise. I always include a return envelope. For US contacts and managers, I include an SASE. For DX contacts, I include either a Greenstamp (GS) (or two) or a current IRC. If you have a preference, please make sure to note it on your QRZ page. If there is no preference for GS or IRC on QRZ.com, I usually consult W9OL or N6DHZ. If this information is incorrect for your country, please take a moment and let them (and me!) know.

Note: For contests, I only send out direct QSLs for new band/mode contacts, but I send cards through the Bureau for most other DX contacts. If you need or would like my QSL card, you can contact me via email or send me a card by your preferred method. I reply 100% to all received QSL cards!

If you have received a QSL card from me, please send one back by the same method (Bureau or Direct). If you have a moment, please drop me a note by email to let me know that my QSL card arrived.

When sending me a QSL card, 1 GS or 1 IRC would be appreciated, but it is not necessary.

I welcome SWL reports! If you'd like my QSL card, please make sure to let me know!

W3 Incoming QSL Info

I have recently started as the "3S" sorter for the ARRL Third Call Area Incoming QSL Bureau, which is managed by the National Capitol DX Association. For USA stations with a "3S" callsign, please see below for information on maintaining envelopes in bureau.

About NF8I

NF8I - Digital Relay Station

I'm a professional geek, specializing in computer network security. When I'm not chasing DX on my waterfall or tweaking my home network, I enjoy scuba diving and flying.

I got my Technician class Ham Radio license in September, 2004, and upgraded to General class in October, 2004, back when you still had to pass the 5 WPM CW test. I got my Extra class ticket a few months later in January, 2005. My original callsign was KD8AIE, but after being called "K8-EIEIO" one too many times on the air, I decided a callsign with fewer consecutive vowels was in order. My current callsign, NF8I, was issued to me in April, 2005.

I'm often on JT65 or PSK31, floating anywhere between 80m and 10m. I also really enjoy Hellschreiber mode. Let me know any time if you're up for a Feld-Hell ragchew!

I am one of the NTS Digital Relay Stations for the Maryland/DC Section. Let me know if you have any NTS messages to send!
