Page lookups begin September 16, 2011 from my Kasilof qth.
I am qrt from June 1st through September 15th each year for my summer salmon fishing.
I am the qsl manager for VK0TH & VK8TH. Log search and important information listed below. VK0TH total log: 14,830 LoTW matches: 9256 Update below: Jan 30, 2015
QSL Policy No IRC's please. My local post office is a smaller rural office and will not accept them. They told me I could try Anchorage, a 3.5 hour drive one way. I do not go to Anchorage.
LoTW: Uploads every few days. PayPal: Answered same day I receive them. Direct: Answered same day I receive them. Buro: I do not answer buro cards anymore. eQSL: I do not use eQSL but upload as a courtesy for those who do. I am AG.
PayPal is via my email address listed above and sent same day, even during the summer. Please list the qso details and shipping address. SWL's please list 3 staions I work. Just listing a cluster spot will not work for me as I check them.
Emphasis added for direct qsls: Insufficient return postage will result in returning the qsl via the buro. I will qsl those direct cards via the buro in May of each year. I do not qsl via the buro anymore because of the high cost of the ARRL out going buro system.
My station is located on the banks of the Kasilof River on the Kenai Peninsula south of Soldotna.
WL7E & Sandy, my YL
Update: Jan 30, 2015
Trevor is sending me the logs for VK8TH. I will begin to acquire the LoTW certificate and order VK8TH cards now.
Update: Dec 30, 2014
February 2014 I began setting up LoTW, etc for Trevor to take over the qsling duties. Once qsl cards had arrived here at the end of April I asked Trevor to send me all direct cards he had there in Darwin, which he did. However they never arrived here in Alaska. We had no idea where they were! In early Dec 2014 Trevor informed me those cards had finally been returned to him, seven months later! He asked me what he would like me to do with them. I asked him to send them again which he did immediately. He mentioned there was some water damage to the outside of the package. When I received the cards here I could tell some of the envelopes had slight water damage on them. I received those cards on Dec 29th. When I got home from the Soldotna post office at 4:00PM local time I began on the cards. There were about 180 envelopes. All cards are done and have been sent today Dec 30th local time.
For those still needing a paper card, I have cards on hand now. If you have any questions and believe you are in the log, please feel free to email me and I will do the research necessary.
In Trevor's original log some qso's show in the rst sent field as "000". That is how Trevor logged NIL's. The qso was not completed. There could be several reasons for this. Stations in the pile up calling on top of the station Trevor was trying to work so he could not hear his signal report is just one example.Those qso's did show on eQSL and HRDLOG.net originally. I have edited all NIL's (000) out of my qsling log, purged (deleted) the eQSL and HRDNET.log original logs and re-uploaded with all of the NIL's (000) removed to those sites. LoTW and Club Log do not have any of the NIL's (000) in their log. There were 225 NIL's (000) in the original log. I can see that most guys worked Trevor again very soon a few minutes after the "000". In effect making the actual NIL's (000) much less than 225. This is why a qso has been deleted on HRDLOG.net, eQSL and will not show up in LoTW or Club Log. I hope this helps to understand why a qso is now gone.
