QSL manager: W5UE (please read THIS)
Please do not send cards directly to me, as the mail service is absolutely unreliable and rates are too high (up to 4 to 6 USD for.a simple letter) to some destinations, and IRCs are useless. Send them to W5UE. Please don't send any kind of mail to CBA, PO Box 2109 - Asuncion, as I don't hold that box anymore. PO Box 512 is fine with me, as it belongs to the RCP bureau service, but you'd rather send cards to my QSL manager.
