PSE note that entire 2011 log has been uploaded on LOTW.
The entire log of II2MM (2011) has been also uploaded on eQsl.cc using my IK2SOE account with a specific signature in comment field [ "Operating II2MM - Year 2011 ONLY - TNX QSO" ]
Other then this, due to many requests, I've applied today (05 Jan 14) to eQsl.cc as II2MM, so you should be able, now, to get the "right" eQsl.
Let me remember that BURO QSL is HIGHLY recommended, even if it takes more time, and, unless very particular cases, I will only REPLY your card.
Otherwise, if you hurry, choose de DIRECT way, but don't forget to include SAE + 2$. If you don't, either SAE or 2$, I will reply via BURO.

PSE PAY ATTENTION !!! : Sometimes, I am receiving via bureau QSL cards addressed to IZ2SOE.
Of course, this is NOT your fault, but PSE take note that Roberto DOES NOT use the bureau. If you like to send a QSL card to him, do it ONLY DIRECT . Postage to forward the QSL cards to him will never cause my bankruptcy, but it's a waste of time for me and you. TNX in advance for your kind cooperation.
ATTENZIONE PER FAVORE !!! : Ogni tanto, mi capita di ricevere via bureau le QSL indirizzate a IZ2SOE .
Ovviamente non é colpa vostra, ma desidero ricordarvi che Roberto NON fa uso del bureau, quindi le QSL vanno inviate esclusivamente per via diretta. La spesa per rispedirgliele non mi manderà certamente mai in rovina, tuttavia considerate la perdita di tempo mia e anche vostra. Ringrazio anticipatamente per la vostra collaborazione.
