2015, 2014, 2013, and 2011 ARRL June VHF Contests - Woodall Mountain, Tishomingo Co., MS, EM54vs (as NV4B/5)
QSOs made as "NV4B portable 5" are submitted to contest sponsors, eQSL, Logbook of the World, and Club Log as "NV4B/5".
GENERAL QSL INFO:
Logbook of the World and eQSL are kept up to date within a day or so of most QSOs. If you expected a match, but did not receive one, please e-mail me.
I now update Club Log soon after each QSO, or at the end of each contest. Before QSLing, you may verify that you are in my log by using the Club Log search above. If you are not in the log, you may e-mail for an explanation and/or resolution.
For stateside QSL requests, please QSL direct, and include a self-addressed stamped envelope. I'm sorry, but I typically do not keep postage on hand to reply to postcards or QSLs mailed without any return postage.
For QSL requests from outside the U.S., please QSL direct with a USPS Global Forever stamped return envelope or $1 USD. International postage from the U.S. is $1.15, so a minimum of $1 is needed to return a card if you do not have a U.S. Global stamp to send.
I do not respond to bureau requests.
I do not use QRZ Logbook.
