Thanks for very nice hosting and hospitality from BFRA members and for good organization for this meeting. My pleasure to make " eye ball QSO"with many bulgarian radioamateurs and others already worked by radio. See you all again on CW.
QSL sent direct from JAPAN : please don't use Prepaid Enveloppes nor Aérogramme type enveloppes. Use Normal Air Mail enveloppes for return.TKS.
December 2013, main operator of 3A60ARM : I made 2,501 CW QSO, 40 SSB, 11 Digimode, 75 DXCC, 36 US
(August 2012) If you need my QSL via Bureau send an email and my QSL will be printed and posted through the 3A QSL Bureau wich send twice a year (January and July) QSLs to other QSL bureau worldwide. In this case DON'T send ypur QSL. I dont collect anymore QSL paper (except new one I need and I request direct).
Current QSL direct
My station (2008)
Usualy I work Simplex. To avoid confusion , a few hints to make our life easier and our hobby more fun and effortless (i.e. some DX rules according to DX Code of Conduct):
ABOUT PAPER QSL... some topics
In addition to LoTW and eQSL (AG) PREFERD, I am proud to be 100% QSL. I can send via buureau QSL on request by Mail (not necessary to send your QSL). Send your paper QSL only if really necessary. Don't duplicate paper/LoTW/eQSL AG.
When I receive a card from bureau or even direct I will add any QSO's after the date on the same card sent to YOU via bureau or direct, this saves on cards and costs.
QSL via Bureau. Be carefull before sending QSL via Bureau : QSL bureau need loooooooong time (3 years at least to ... eternity ! For direct QSL pse SAE + 1NEW IRC 2017 model PREFERED or equivalent (foreign 3$ , Europe 2$ or 2€ euro. red). I don't collect green stamps nor IRCs, HI. Pay only the return of your card, no more ! If not, return via bureau. For PayPal send before an email to me.
Pour les stations francaises, PAS de DOLLARS (il est plus facile d'acheter un timbre que recuperer un dollar) je prefere une enveloppe self adressee correctement avec timbre francaisau tarif lettre en vigueur.
For multiple QSL request, add fee postage. Japanese prepaid enveloppes are not accepted by our national Postal service.
Radioactive 1.8 to 50 MHz. Soon on 4 meters. Mainly CW op (see statistics above). When propagation is low, active on digimodes (PSK / RTTY, ROS, JT65 e.g.)

Monaco is only 2km2 city, a very small country. The WORST place for DX'ing ! We have a lot of urban QRN specialy in the evening with domestic apparatus (TV Plasma, PLC, motors engine,ecc, ecc), and by commercial communication equipment (Broadcast TX, digipeaters, U.SHF , radiocoms abord ships, ec, ecc.). Having big antennas is now just a dream.... I left my 12 m up tower and 3 el beam for a vertical ant. Sufficient for DX CW.

DX window widely open East, South
, West ... from 11th floor..
