Email: Login required to view QSL: PSE READ QRZ.COM INFORMATION AT N4FKZ, POSTAGE $2 NO BURO

ENGLISH: -------ESPAÑOL esta mas abajo-------ITALIANO e piu sotto--------GRID EK44

ALL DIRECT QSL CARDS RECEIVED UP TO  MARCH 1 ARE OUT.

PLEASE READ BEFORE SENDING YOUR QSL CARD!!!

1) Please send your mail to N4FKZ, my qsl mail drop.

2) Make sure you get the correct address for N4FKZ, also important to read the info at N4FKZ, here on QRZ.com.

3) Please don't forget send $2.- for your return postage (very sorry but we can't take ircs, NO IRCs).

4) Your return envelope SASE has to have your full name (name and last name).

5) We have NO BURO, NO LOTW and no Electronic confirmation of any kind.

6) We only keep logs for 5 years, after 5 years logs are closed and automatically deleted by the computer.

7) If you need an old qso and want me to go dig  my old logs full of dust in my garage it will cost you $5 also 5E will work aswell but first must E-mail me for instructions.

8) Only one qsl card per envelope with no more than 3 qsos.

9) No registered mail please.

10) Please no duplicate qsos

11) It is the responsibility of the Dxer to read and understand our qsling instructions

We apreciate much your understanding and cooperation. Let me tell you what I am doing for you, between opening your letter, looking for the qso in the log, writing your card, checking your return envelope to make sure all is ok, then affixing a stamp before closing the envelope, some envelopes come with out glue, we have to use regular glue on them and finaly, letters must be packed in bundles of 25 to be sent (not for free) via "safe courrier" to the US Post Office. Altogether, It takes me no less than 5 minutes per qsl card, best I can do about 10 per hour SEVERAL DAYS OF MY LIFE JUST TO ANSWER YOUR QSL CARDS. The worst part are some of the opinionated, weird, ignorant people that we have to deal with, also the unintelligent individuals pretending to impose their will on us plus the wise fellows trying to get a free ride. It is incredible that there are some people sending their return envelopes with USED US stamps on them. There was an A.H. who sent me a photocopy of a two dollar bill ( true).

INFORMATION: In 1998 when we noticed that our local Post Office was having big irregularities, in order to prevent this, we were forced to establish a “mail drop” in the US.To make this sistem work for you, please send your mail to the address for N4FKZ. We're very sorry but we can´t exchange IRCs anymore and $2, like in most parts of the world, are necesary for mailing your card back to you. The rest is the same, one card per envelope, with no more than 3 QSO’s per card, and no cards with dates over 5 years old. We are not members of the Bureau (Buro) service at all. It is not to our covenience to send our qsl cards via a third party, unless it is a QSL manager. We went through the trouble of establishing this mail drop system just to make sure that you don’t loose your green stamps. Please give us a hand with your understanding and cooperation, this way you will get the qsl card you need, please be very careful, the address you need is N4FKZ because N4KZ was sick and tired of getting my cards, he had to place and add on his entry here on QRZ.com trying to prevent any more mistakes, W4FKZ does not even exist and KZ8Y is also wrong, he has nothing to do with our mail; sending an SASE is elementary.

I would like to express my gratitude to all Hams who have contacted me in the past 35 years, especially those who enabled me to work all the countries from the DXCC list --"TOP HONOR ROLL N.1"--. Having a total of 355 phone and mixed, on the CW mode (telegraphy), it gives me great satisfaction to be the first operator from all the Spanish speaking countries of the entire world to ever achieve --CW DXCC HONOR ROLL--, and now with 351 confirmed; only P5 missing for N.1. At the creation of DXCC on 30 mts we were there with the same punctuality, just like DXCC on 17 and 12 mts, our 160 mts DXCC No185 and 6 mts DXCC No 774 are there also, the ancient 5BDXCC No 939, 5BWAS No 900 or 5BWAZ with 200 zones No 45, I consider them part of the past, At this time we are waiting with all the necessary qsl cards on 160, 80, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12, 10 and 6, for the creation of a new award, 10BDXCC, hoping ARRL sooner or later will offer it.

My 351 CW DXCC, I did not do it alone, God gave me a big hand, and from my friend K8CW Al Fischer, got the inspiration to learn the trade, this guy is one of the best I know, able to Tx Rx even asleep (true), the other one was Ron ZL1AMO now Rest in Peace, both CW Masters. About my station, not much, my radio is an old Kenwood TS450S modifyed by Papa Bravo, for 200 w my antennas, only Mono Band antennas by Hy-Gain, 27 mts up, our location in Guatemala city is 5000 feet elevation, just like Denver in Colorado USA, also very important, the patience of my beloved wife and last but not least our humble very little experience.

ESPAÑOL:

Tengo el honor y la satisfaccion de ser el primer operador de todos los paises de habla Hispana del mundo entero en haber obtenido el Honor Roll del DXCC en Telegrafia CW y hoy con 351 estoy, con la ayuda de Dios, compitiendo con los mejores operadores telegrafistas del mundo. En el DXCC SSB hemos logrado con 355 el TOP HONOR ROLL N.1, Lo que realmente mas alegria me da son mis DXCC en 6 mts y 160 mts, tambien 12, 17 y 30 que no es facil hacerlos, lo que nos da en resumen un muy apetecido "10 BANDAS DXCC", con respecto al 5band WAZ de 200 zonas N.45 y al 5band WAS N. 900, yo los considero cosa del pasado.

Para que se enteren que yo conozco muy bien el tema de pedir qsls desde España, les relataré que hace como 25 años, cuando España firmó el convenio con USA para la reciprocidad de las licencias de Radioaficionado, yo fui el primero que logró un DXCC, EA4/N4FKZ. Lo tengo en la pared, es No 25295 con 165 paises; mil gracias a mis queridos amigos EA4BKE Javier y el Buen Fernando EA3SF, recuerdo a EA4CQT Virgilo, a quien felicito por su cosecha de 310 paises en CW, y mi grande y buen amigo EA8AK Fernando, quien me dio la alegria de tenerlo aca, operando mi estación, también EA9IE Juanjo, pasó por esta y le atendimos, con Elmo EA5BYP hemos acordado reunirnos, mucha gente buena en España, excelentes anfitriones, un pais muy bello, yo solo gratos recuerdos guardo. Naturalmente que tambien hay algunos "Culiprontos" como en todas partes del mundo, gente asi no falta en ninguna parte.

Si a usted le llegara a hacer falta una de mis qsls, la UNICA forma en que puedo ayudarlo, es por correo directo, para eso usara la direccion en USA de N4FKZ, donde, lamentablemente no tenemos Buró, y para el pago del correo, como en muchas partes del mundo, hacen falta $2, con mucha pena, pero ya no podemos cambiar cupones IRC, mandar solamente una qsl por carta y que no tenga mas de 3 qsos. Me vi obligado a hacer esto para proteger sus envios, porque, el correo en mi lugar es muy erratico y si mandan algo a mi direccion propia, quizas no me llegue, hay muchos lugares donde ocurre esto, yo no soy el unico. Solamente tenemos log para poder confirmar qsos que no tengan más de 5 años y la respuesta de su carta puede tomar hasta 2 meses, dependiendo del trafico, ruego sean pacientes, necesito su colaboración, recuerde que lo que estoy haciendo es para ayudarlo, siga nuestras instrucciones y cualquier duda, mandeme un correo E- Mail. Muchas gracias por su comprension y su paciencia. Suplico pongan bien atención al tomar la dirección, la que necesitan es la de N4FKZ porque el señor N4KZ esta cansado de que le lleguen mis qsls, al extremo que se vio obligado a poner una advertencia en su informacion de qsl, aqui mismo en QRZ.com, tratando de evitar mas equivocaciones, asi mismo, les informo que W4FKZ no existe y KZ8Y no tiene nada que ver con mi correo, son errores, y solo Dios sabe cuantos perdieron sus qsls por descuidados o mal informados, y en vez de de aceptar su equivocación como varones masculinos, despotrican en contra mia como si fueran damas ofendidas. Una última sugerencia, no ponga sus indicativos en los sobres de sus qsls, porque todos los empleados de todos los correos del mundo saben que en la correspondencia de los Radioaficionados puede haber dinero y como hoy en dia, en cualquier lugar hay ladrones, no hay que ayudarlos. No podemos atender QSLs electronicas ni LOTW,con mucha pena pero lamentablemente el correo certificado no podemos tomarlo, con respecto al sobre autodirigido que debe mandar para el retorno de su QSL, pongale bien el nombre y el apellido, las dos cosas porque, el correo de aca es muy exigente con lo de identificar bien al destinatario de la carta.- Agradezco a los envidiosos que me hacen sentir grande porque solo se puede envidiar a quien es mas o mejor que uno (Sanpoteste 17).

ITALIANO:

innanzitutto debbo informarvi che so perfettamente come sia difficile ricevere una QSL in Italia, per motivi che non dipendono da me. Quando 25 anni fa la nostra nazione Italia ha convalidato la reciprocità per la patente di radioamatore con gli Stati Uniti, sono stato il primo ad ottenere un DXCC come IØ/N4FKZ con 120 paesi collegati e confermati, e ancora lo tengo appeso qui sulla parete, #25798, e ciò grazie all’amico Telemaco IØTBI: purtroppo ho più volte chiesto a Mauro di comparire nella lista dei possessori di DXCC italiani, ma al momento non ho avuto alcuna risposta (!!!).

Se mi richiedete la QSL, non usate il Buro, ma inviatela direttamente a N4FKZ accludendo $2, e non usate coupons IRC; abbiate pazienza perché la risposta può anche richiedere fino a 2 mesi; sono anche spiacente di comunicarvi che non ho log più vecchi dell’anno 2005. Vi pregherei di inviare ogni cartolina con non più di 3 QSO,e che sia una per ogni busta. Prestate attenzione all’indirizzo esatto di N4FKZ, non confondetevi con N4KZ oppure W4FKZ oppure ancora KZ8Y, sono nominativi che nulla hanno a che vedere con le mie QSL. Per qualunque dubbio o richiesta, inviatemi una E-Mail. Vi ringrazio per la comprensione e vi auguro un sincero arrivederci e buona fortuna. Non mandate QSL elettroniche, posta raccomandata oppure LoTW, e non dimenticate la busta SAE. Grázie a Gianni I8QLI.

Thank you all for visiting my page, I feel honored to have your flag in my counter, so far we have had 150 different countries, they all came voluntarily and I appreciate you all.

Deseo dejar muy claro que yo jamas he visitado ningun Forum de intercambio de banderas, nunca he limosneado una bandera,y mucho menos chantajeado a nadie para obligarlo a que me deje su bandera en mi contador; eso si, yo soy de la opinion que cada quien es muy libre de hacer lo que mejor le convenga, respetando las reglas del caso, ahora bien, la Honestidad, la Moral, el Respeto, la Casta, la Etica y el Abolengo vienen de casa y por supuesto,"Lo que natura non da Salamanca non presta"
