QSL'ing K7JR

Thanks for your QSO with K7JR. We appreciate your participation in whatever contest we were operating in.

Our preferred method for confirming QSOs is via Logbook of the World. Please use that whenever possible.

Direct and Buro cards go to K7ZO -- do not use the Post Office Box in Baker City.

If you do want a card, I QSL 100% for all cards received if you want a card in return. I am very happy to send you a K7JR QSL card. For a direct card, US stations please include an SASE. International cards please include a Self-Addressed Envelope and and $1 US for postage. Over the years I have replied to well over 30,000 QSL cards. If piled up in one stack these cards would weigh 180 pounds / 80 kilograms and would be 20 feet / 6 meters high!

If you want a QSL card in return please make sure your card states "Please QSL". Increasingly I am getting buro cards that simply state "Confirming our QSO" without any indication if the sender wants a card in return. As of April 2013 I am no longer going to reply to cards that do not ask for a card in return. With my average cost to reply to a buro card being $0.13 I am just asking for you to ask for a card if you want one in return. Over the years I have spent the equivalent of a pretty good HF rig replying to cards.

Also, if you want a card in return please make sure to follow good QSLing practice. In particular these two things make it easier for me to confirm your QSO:

  1. Always make sure to use UTC time and date. In particular I still receive a large percentage, maybe 10-15%, of cards from Japan where the QSO is in local time. This takes extra time and effort to confirm.
  2. Please make sure your callsign is on the same side of the card as the QSO information. That way I only have to look at one side of the card in order to get your requested reply on the way. Again, this seem to mostly be a problem with cards from Japan.

If all you are doing is confirming a QSO out of courtesy, save yourself the expense of the physical card and use LOTW. We do not need your card.

Direct cards are replied to typically the next day. US stations please include an SASE. International cards please include a Self-Addressed Envelope and an IRC or sufficient funds for postage. As of July 2013 I prefer to have a $1 rather than an IRC. I will make up the $0.20 difference between the actual stamp cost of $1.20 and the green stamp. Buro cards are typically replied to within 2-3 weeks of receiving a shipment from the W7 buro. I receive a box from the W7 Buro about every 6-9 months with 800-1,000 cards. It typically takes a year to two from the time you start a card on its way to me for me to receive it.

January 28, 2017 Update - All K7JR QSOs to date have been uploaded to LOTW. I just received a shipment of cards from the buro. Most were for QSOs in late 2015. The reply cards, for those that asked, will be on the way to the ARRL outgoing buro by February 1.
