OUT APRIL 2013!
All QSL’s to XU7ADI, HS0ZFI, 9M6/SM5GMZ, 9M8/SM5GMZ and 6V7F should be sent to my homecall. The same applies with QSLs to SK5A as I'm the QSL Manager for the Swedish DX and Contest Club "Lake Malaren DX Group". Directly or via the bureau doesn't matter - I will reply to all cards.
So far I have worked more than 50 000 QSO’s with my different Asian and African callsigns. As it would be impossible for me to upbring the costs for sending QSLs to everyone I have worked, I will only QSL those who QSL me. If you send the card(s) to me directly, make sure that you include a SASE and sufficient postage. As the cost for sending an airmail letter from Sweden is 12 SEK, this means 1 IRC or 2 USD. Requests with insufficient postage (or any old type of IRC with an expired date) will be returned via the bureau.
I have been a ham since the beginning of the 70’s and still enjoy the fact that I have the best hobby of them all. After studies at the University of Stockholm, the Swedish Institute of Film and Berghs School of Communications, I have been working as a journalist for almost 20 years, mostly for magazines and newspapers but also for the commercial radio. In 1996 I wanted to change path and today I work as a full-time photojournalist. Between 2005 and 2009 I worked for New York based World Picture News (WpN), stationed in Cambodia and other countries in S/E Asia. Unfortunately WpN didn't survive the economic turmoil in late 2008 and today I'm a contracted contributor to Scanpix Sweden Ltd (AP, AFP and Reuters). A wide range of Swedish and international newspapers and magazines are other image buyers. I'm a member of the Swedish Union of Journalists and the Pressphotographers Association of Sweden.
In September 2010 I released the photo book The Dump at the Gothenburg Book Fair, a 120 page coffee table book with a large number of Black and White pictures showing what happens when large parts of the global aid doesn't reach the ones it was intended for - the children of Cambodia. In 2011 I released my second book called Ryd (in Swedish). This is truly a photo book with high quality artistic B/W pictures from one of Sweden's last graveyards for old cars and an amazing history around this fantastic place in southern Sweden.
In April 2013 a third book - 3B7C - will be released, both as a traditional photo book as well as an e-book for reading devices such as iPad and Kindle. In 2007, the Five Star Dxers Association, FSDXA, amassed a giant DX-pedition to St. Brandon, outside Mauritius in the Indian Ocean, that still counts as one of the more successful in terms of the number of contacts. The call sign, 3B7C, was for three intense weeks in September synonymous with the global fellowship and the artless joy that is so typical among large numbers of people all over the world, as they all love and share the best hobby of them all- amateur radio.
3B7C is also a tribute to one of the expedition members, Jens/DL7AKC, who became a SK in 2011 and 10% of all sales will go directly to the German High Speed Club, in which Jens was its' secretary. We will aslo donate another 10% of the proceeds to the ARRL youth activities and an additional 10% to the Five Star DXers Association (FSDXA) which has been the moving force behind a number of successful DX-peditions since 1998.
