- Please write the Callsign of the expedition on the envelope
- Make sure you email and have any logs corrected BEFORE requesting QSLs. We process the QSL in bulk and
we can eliminate log validation at card processing time, thus speeding up the process
- All our cards are foldable cards, so if you are sending multiple requests, please ensure the envelope will hold the card(s)
- Self adhesive, peelable envelopes are preferable and are easy to dispatch and times often is faster to process. We hold envelopes that require the glue to be made wet to stick and close them. It delays the dispatching.
VU7AG/VU4K Expedition QSL requests: Please follow the directions posted in the expedition webpage.
The typical request is $3 + Self addressed envelope (if u have difficulty sending $3, please email me. We will help you)
You are supporting to defray some of the costs of the expedition.
This only helps us to shoot for a breakeven and to invest in the next expedition.
W4VKU contact QSL reqeust procedure:
QSL direct or via bureau for W4VKU contacts. My station logs are uploaded to LOTW on a periodic basis for
DXCC and award purposes. I upload eQSL.cc just to help fellow amateurs who use that system, but i track
only DXCC/WAS via LOTW. I prefer LOTW/eQSL due to ease of use.
W4VKU contact Direct QSL requests receive immediate attention. US stations, please send me a SASE. Requests from other countries
should be accompanied by a SELF addressed envelope + 1 IRC or $2 US.
My son collects stamps of all countries. If you are sending me some cancelled stamps from any country for his
collection, then please feel free to skip the $ or the 1IRC. We will make sure you get a return card by direct
international mail. The default for missing the requirements above will result in the card getting sent out via the bureau.
Bureau cards get batched and i send them out when i have a good size package.
My Station comprises a Yaesu FT-990, Raytheon Ray 152, Kenwood TS-480SAT+RemoteRig for HF.
Rigexpert TI-5 for CW and digital modes.
