PLEASE DO NOT QSL VIA THE BURO!!! I QSL 100% BUT DIRECT ONLY! - THANKS!!
Please note - Canada Post has just raised outgoing air mail rates by 35% effective April 2014. So sorry but we must increase our request for postage funding from $2US to $3US as a result. Kindly include a self-addressed stamped envelope, (3)USA GREEN STAMPS or a valid new IRC. Direct QSL requests are answered via air mail, usually on a same day basis. P L E A S E - NO BURO CARDS - THANKS. I do QSL 100% DIRECT and use LOTW for major contests only.
VY2ZM was established in 2001 in Eastern Kings County, Prince Edward Island, Atlantic Canada. Please QSL via direct to VY2ZM in Canada only. VY2ZM operates in many of the major contests, but specializes in lowband operations with state of the art antennas. The various 160M contests are my favorites, eg: ARRL 160, CQ160, etc.
Please check out my website at http://www.vy2zm.comfor additional information about the station- thanks,
