I am not a member of the radio society and do not have access to the buro. There are only two ways to QSL. Use the log applet below to be sure you are in the log. You can email me to check and correct any error or omission if necessary.

1. QSL direct, covering my costs of replying to you and enclosing a return envelope. Current Irish postage rates mean a minimum of $2 is required. This will cover up to 9 QSOs - if sending for more contacts, an extra $ is needed. Insufficient or no postage means no reply. Any extra $ helps towards costs of operating, cards, etc. No pre-paid envelopes, stamps, coin (European stations can send a 2 Euro coin if they wish), e-cards. From 1st January 2017, I cannot accept IRCs.

2. Send a PayPal payment of EURO 2.50 to erik.ei4kf@gmail.com - payment must be in Euro and, if PayPal allows it, use the 'send money to friends/family' option (it is ok if not available).

VERY IMPORTANT - Send an email to erik.ei4kf@gmail.com giving the QSO data. Time, Date, Band, Mode, and your Callsign. I will then send you a QSL direct.

Licenced since 1985, as G0CGL I worked and confirmed all DXCC entities (No 1 Honor Roll, achieved 1993, first G0) with all or nearly all entities confirmed on every band except 6 and 160m (100+ those bands).  In 2011, I relocated to EI and started activity as EI4KF in September of that year.

I am QRV 160m - 6m on SSB, CW and digital modes. If you need EI on a particular band or mode, email for a sked. I can be QRV most times to suit you. 

Hexbeam: 6mtrs - 20mtrs; Rotary Dipole: 30mtrs; Vertical on 12mtr Spiderpole: 40mtrs; OCF Dipole: 60mtrs & 80mtrs SSB; Vertical on 18mtr Spiderpole: 80mtrs CW; Inverted-L on 18mtr Spiderpole: 160mtrs.


80m: In the 2017-2018 winter DX season, my frequency for JA on the long-path will be 3506 or 3507 +/- QRM from about 08z. I shall also be QRV 2030z on 160m and at 2130z for 80m CW short-path JA (any clear frequency).

2016-2017 Season - In the period 19 November 2016 to 14 January 2017, a total of 137 JA QSOs were made LP on 80m. Another 10 JAs were worked SP in my evening time. On 160m SP in my evening, 54 JAs were worked. I appreciate all JAs who emailed me to say thanks for their QSO or receipt of the QSL card.


On 160m/80m I've noticed that more than 25% of my recent QSOs are duplicates and I find this figure excessive. Some days, the amount of duplicates from USA has reached 100% of the QSOs in my log. I can understand that some people can call me to say hi or have a chat when propagation is not good, but I cannot understand stations working me for the 4th, 5th, 6th time on the same band and the same mode. The culture of duping is out of control.

I also think that duplicates from Japan prevent other stations from getting the QSO in the limited duration JA openings. I do not work / log duplicates if they are in the same band and the same mode.  I hope this is understandable.


If you made a QSO with me but your callsign does not appear in my log search, please email to check and have any log error corrected. Especially on 80m, there are some busted calls but I am happy to check and amend my log if you let me know.

The log is in real-time for SSB / CW except during contests.



QSL card update: As at 23 March 2017, all cards received with an envelope + sufficient return postage,

together with PayPal QSL requests, have been answered.
