GENERAL QSL INFO: Please QSL direct w/SASE; $1 required for DX requests. QSLs received with SASEs are generally answered the day they are received. QSL requests received via the bureau will not be answered. I upload all logs to LoTW and eQSL, usually very soon after the QSO, or at the end of a contest. Please e-mail me if you expected a LoTW or eQSL match but didn't get one.
