As of 2013, due to an increasing number of contest QSOs = waste of paper

All international contest QSOs will be QSLed via LOTW and eQSL only.

I will sent paper QSLs to selected contest stations (rare DX,etc.)

I will reply with paper QSLs to each and every paper QSL received.

You can always request paper QSL (via bureau) for a contest QSO. Just send me an e-mail.

!! All normal QSOs (non-contest) will be QSLed via the bureau + LOTW !!

I sometimes QSL via eQSL but i do not take this qsl system to seriously. I check-positive all that comes into my inbox.


  The ones i consider "good" QSL systems are: LOTW and bureau.

If  You have not received my QSL, PSE e-mail me. I had some HRD Logbook malfunction and some data went south. 

Guys, PSE if you had a QSO with me on HF/mobile pse e-mail me with infos abt. that QSO, as in 9.5/10 cases i was driving while QSOing,so QSOs were not logged.

My second call is SN5V. I mainly use it for contesting but as it is a QRO call (1500W) i sometimes use it in normal QSOs, when exceeding 500W. As strange as it might sound - these are the regulations. Normal call up to 500W and a vanity call sign above 500W.

Born in 1979. I got into HAM Radio in 1994/5 after few years on CB as a child and teenager.Most active on: HF with DX.Often found on SR5WA repeater You can call me on local QRGs (145.500 SP EMCOM QRG and on 70.260 FM). I am a very poor CW operator. I am able to tx fast but my ears are just not good enough for CW :) so if you will copy me on CW, pse be patient. I am an avid supporter of the idea that all contest QSL should go via LOTW(Normal QSO can go both ways). To much paper is wasted on paper Contest QSLs.

I also am strongly opposed to sending any direct ($,IRC,EU) QSLs. It is a hobby, god damn it! I too have to pay for all the stuff. If you cannot afford QSLs, manager, there is no QSL BUREAU in your country, you have no internet connection for LOTW QSL, you live on Mars... then tell me that and be honest. It is no shame to say that you cannot QSL due to economic reasons. We all are humans and we all have brains to undrestand this. In other cases, IMHO, you look like a USD not QSL collector and your motto should be "Me love you long time,me send-e send-e QSLe QSL only 5 dollars". It is the 21st century already. You can upload your LOTW files via HF to a helpful HAM, you can send them once a year from an internet cafe... there are plenty of ways ... but you won't make money on them. I do am long enough on HF to rememebr that we used to send data over HF before the "age of Internet". :-) 

Hmmm what else? Except of what pisses me off in this hobby? Well i try to keep my radio operations with a dose of humour.I joke sometimes and strongly refuse to become a "rusty, straight key" with no flexibility whatsoever :-). 
By profession i'm a "photoshopist" / graphic designer / DTP operator working both as a freelancer for the movie industry and full-time in flexo prepress. By my tech edu: photo technician, by my university edu: political scientist - BA and MA degrees(in national defence policy). I still am very much interested in politics and try to be "well informed". As a person i try to keep my integrity. 

I hate stations who come to a QRG and do not even aks "Is this frequency in use?".

In late summer o 2016 i moved to Wiązowna,aprox.25km S-E from Warsaw. Still setting-up my new station.  

Currently @ new QTH running with 7 el 7 bands GXP Yagi (40-10m) @13,5m , 80m INV-V, 60m INV-V,  160m INV-L, K9AY,
