Since October 24, 2017, VE3XN is enjoying FT8.  I hope we can make a QSO.  LOTW is fb and I upload my log every day. If you still enjoy QSLs as I do, let's also exchange cards.  The bureau or direct, works for me. Sorry, but I do not do e-qsl.

My heartfelt thanks goes  to friends VA3DX-Glenn, VE3BW-Joe, and VE3CV-Jeff for getting me on this fascinating digital mode known as FT8. 

TU also to VA3WR, James for his assistance with LOTW uploads for VX3150 and VX3100. The last update will be as soon as James's busy work schedule will allow him time to visit my QTH.

​I hope you are as fortunate as I am, in having friends like Dave, VE3OI, who helps maintain my antennae and equipment.  Without his valued assistance, climbing, repairing, and advice, this Old Man would not be on the air.

Cheers and hope to work you soon......

​Bureau cards are welcomed and answered via the ARRL Outgoing Bureau in Newington, CT, USA.

Direct QSLs should have a self-addressed envelope and return postage enclosed.​​  Thank you! 

Looking back....but still valid....

VE3XN and VE3GCO are QSL managers for the Micro-Light Penguins DXpeditions under the leadership of James Brooks, 9V1YC. Please send your QSL requests as follows:

VP8THU South Sandwich Is. 2002 via VE3XN

VP8GEO South Georgia Is. 2002 via VE3GCO

FT5XO Kerguelen Is. 2005 via VE3XN

ZL8R Kermadec Is.of 2006 via VE3XN.

VP8ORK from 2011 is via VE3XN.  Please note that any pay pal requests for VP8ORK cards should be sent to Don, N1DG.  QRZ.com will give you the information you need.

Please note that direct requests require a SAE (self addressed envelope) and a minimum of 1 IRC or  $3.00 USD to cover the postage costs for mail sent around the world. Only the newest style-properly stamped IRC(s) should be sent.

A SASE (Self-addressed stamped envelope) is the minimum expected from Canadian amateurs.

American amateurs who request QSLs should not use US stamps on a SASE back to them. Canada has its own post office. Hi. One new IRC or 2 dollars should be sent by American amateurs.  

An extra IRC or USD helps to send bureau cards out to the ARRL Outgoing QSL Bureau in Newington, CT., USA.  Bureau cards now basically cost about 12 cents US each to send out.  For the past 27 years VE3XN has assisted the VE3 bureau by being the initial sorter of cards that come into Ontario for VA3/VE3/special Ontario prefix calls.

Please check 9V1YC's site for information on purchasing DXpedition videos/DVDs from videographer James Brooks. These video gems are great ways to share the experiences of a DXpedition.

VE3XN continues to be the QSL manager and Awards Manager for VE3GCO, The Maple Leaf Radio Society.

The Maple Leaf Award and the Canadian Islands Awards have been two of the most popular awards available for contacts with VE/VA/VO/VY operators and the special calls they use.  The paper award requires five dollars or three new IRCs. Plaques are no longer issued because of their cost and the high cost of postage/shipping/registration.  

Good luck and 73,

Garry V. Hammond, VE3XN
