Rigs: FT-1000, IC-746Pro, & FT-450. Amps QRO HF-2500DX & Command VHF-1200. HF and MF contacts have been made with two simple center-fed dipoles. Starting Jan 2011, for 160M I've been using an inverted L up 70 feet and 60+ feet horizontal with 32 radials. Later during 2011 I put up an inverted L for 80/40 and constructed a low band antenna system that may be a little different than others you have seen. The only aluminum I use is a 5 element 6 meter beam up 60 feet..
My preferred method of QSL is LoTW, but I do send and answer QSL card requests. If anyone needs my card and is in my log, I will gladly QSL promptly to all cards received with an SASE or SAE with sufficient funds. (1 IRC or 1 US Dollar for DX stations) That's the method I use when requesting cards, which has resulted in better than 90% returns. I also upload to eQSL, (AG Status) but don't participate in the program. Effective 2016, I'll no longer send cards via the outgoing bureau. The fees are now too expensive for low volume senders like myself.
Good DX & see you in the pile ups.
