QSL UPDATE June 10, 2014. I am completely caught up on all Direct cards and Bureau cards.
STAMPEDE CITY AWARD.For Stampede City Award questions ask Mike at e-mail VE6TC@rac.ca. General questions:VE6AO@rac.ca Check out the club website for details about the Stampede City Award at:
QSL Manager and QSL Question:VE6TN@shaw.ca. The VE6AO is a beautiful full colour QSL of the Calgary Stampede rodeo.
DIRECT QSL. Please include an SAE and $3 USD "Green Stamp" for DX and $2 USD for USA or an IRC to cover the cost of return postage. Postage rates have increased and the US dollar value has decreased so $1 USD doesn't cover the cost anymore. For those of you new to QSL'ing, a green stamp means a $1 USD bill (money is green). An IRC is an international reply coupon which can be bought at a post office and is similar to sending a money order certificate. Green stamps are easier.
If you have access to Canadian stamps then an SASE should have a $1.20 "Canadian" stamp for USA or$2.50 for DX.
USA Stations, PLEASE DO NOT use USA Postal stamps as they are not good for use in Canada. If you did send a US stamp on an SAE then I will try mailing it but its a gamble whether the Canadian post office will let it through, usually 50% of them make it through and 50% are returned to me. If it is returned I include it in the next bureau shipment. For those of you new to QSL'ing, an SAE is a self addressed envelope and an SASE is a self addressed stamped envelope. It means the QSL manager doesn't have to write out the address on hundreds of envelopes and makes it easier for us.
Any Cards received with insufficient return funds will be sent in the next Bureau shipment.
