As of 2013, due to an increasing number of contest QSOs = waste of paper

All international contest QSOs will be QSLed via LOTW and eQSL only.

I will sent paper QSLs to selected contest stations (rare DX,etc.)

I will reply with paper QSLs to each and every paper QSL received.

You can always request paper QSL for a contest QSO via e-mail (bureau).

!! All normal QSOs (non-contest) will be QSLed via the bureau + LOTW + eQSL !!

I do QSL via eQSL but i do not take this qsl system to seriously. I check-positive all that comes into my inbox. The one i consider "good" QSL system are: LOTW and bureau.

Guys, PSE if you had a QSO with me on HF/mobile pse e-mail me with infos abt. that QSO, as in 9.5/10 cases i will be driving while QSOing,so QSOs were not logged.

Born in 1979. I got into HAM Radio in 1994/5 after few years on CB as a child and teenager.Most active on: HF with DX.Often found on 438.775 MHz SR5WU repeater (called SR5WUDKA - vodka ;-] ). I am an avid supporter of the idea that all contest QSL should go via LOTW(Normal QSO can go both ways). To much paper is wasted on paper QSL. I also am strongly opposed to sending any direct ($,IRC,EU) QSLs. It is a hobby, god damn it! I too have to pay for all the stuff. If you cannot afford QSLs, manager, there is no QSL BUREAU in your country, you have no internet connection for LOTW QSL, you live on Mars... then tell me that and be honest. It is no shame to say that you cannot QSL due to economic reasons. We all are humans and we all have brains to undrestand this. In other cases, IMHO, you look like a USD not QSL collector.

Hmmm what else? Except of what pisses me off in this hobby? Well i try to keep my radio operations with a dose of humour.I joke sometimes and strongly refuse to become a "rusty, straight key" with no flexibility whatsoever :-).

In September 2012 came the day i started operating CW manually (hand+ear). Thanks to a bunch of guys from SP7PKI i was given a chance to work some QRS CW on 80m. On 9-11-2012 i've made my first attempts in CW QSO. Well i have a plenty of them using my PC but not the "old way". So- big thanks to F2GJ, G4FOC for QRS & patience and to W3RJ,who became my 1st CW DX made manually.

Hmm,what else,well-i still "fight" with my poor CW hearing ;-) and i try to work some CW stations from time to time. Contrary to most CW operators i still operate a straight key. Mine is an "ancient" polish military key. Some 30+ years old. Though the idea of buying a paddle was planted and is growing well ;-].

14.01.2013 - I bought my first paddle key and still am learning to use it :-)

By profession i''m a "photoshopist" / graphic designer / DTP operator working both as a freelancer and full-time for the movie industry. By my tech edu: photo technician, by my university edu: political scientist - BA and MA degrees(in national defence policy). I still am very much interested in politics and try to be "well informed". As a person i try to keep my integrity.

Recently i got into contesting. Still am a rookie at it. Here are some of my results which i am proud of, considering my antennas and location and the fact that i compete with far better equipped stations.
