August 9, 2016 -- All QSOs from my W9IND/140 operation (Hiram P. Maxim anniversary) have now been uploaded to LoTW as W9IND/140. 



1. Besides my current home call and previous calls, I am a QSL manager for special event/club stations W9IMS (bureau cards only), W9VW (through April 2015 only), W9SU, W9IRL, W87PAX, WN9ICB and W9IND -- the U.S.S. Indianapolis Memorial station for Museum Ships Weekend 2005 and 2007. I am NOT a QSL manager for WW2IND, the current U.S.S. Indianapolis operation. SWL requests are always welcome -- direct or via bureau. (UPDATE: To confirm any QSOs with W9VW from May 2015 on, please go to QRZ.com's W9VW page for QSL information.)

2. Regardin my personal calls, all existing QSO data from 1971 through 2015, taken from logbooks and contest logs, has been uploaded to LoTW. Unfortunately, some WO9I contest logs from the early 1990s are unavailable or incomplete, but if you need a QSL that cannot be confirmed by LoTW, e-mail me or send me a QSL card and I will try to confirm it through existing records. Note that the WO9I call has been reissued; please see the current QRZ.com listing to confirm any QSOs after 1997.

3. Personal calls now listed on LoTW are W9IND, W9IND/m, WO9I (1990-'97 only), KA9OIH and WN9ICB (personal call from 1971-'73; club call since 2008) .

4. I am a member of eQSL, but I generally don't check my inbox more than once every few months. Unfortunately, with my schedule, this is low on my priority list.

5. All bureau QSL cards for my W9IND/140 operation in 2009 have been sent out.

QSL POLICY (please read):

Actually, I have two QSL policies, depending on whether the card you want is for (1) a special event or club station, or (2) my personal station. Please note that QSL requests from SWLs are also welcome, direct or via bureau, for all calls that I handle.


I would appreciate a small SASE or one green stamp if you want a direct QSL for a special event, club station or other station for which I volunteer as a QSL manager. I'm happy to handle QSLs via bureau at no charge.

I am also handling personal QSL cards for my late friend Mike Koss, W9SU, who became a silent key on March 28, 2011. If you need a W9SU card from 2011 or before, you may QSL direct to my address (please enclose an SASE or green stamp) or via bureau to W9IND or W9SU (slowest route). Note that since 2013, W9SU has been the club callsign of the Legion of Indianapolis DXers, and I also serve as QSL manager for that call.

Direct QSLs from non-U.S. stations that do not include return postage will be answered via bureau.


If you want a card for one of my personal QSOs, I will gladly QSL the same way you do -- direct if you QSL direct, via bureau if you QSL via bureau, no SASE or green stamp required in any case. This includes W9IND (excluding the U.S.S. Indianapolis special event), WO9I (1990-'97 only), KA9OIH and WN9ICB (past or present). And yes, I'll do the same for SWL requests.



First licensed from 1971-'73 as WN9ICB in Franklin, Indiana. Licensed again in 1982; calls since then: KA9OIH (Fort Wayne, Indiana) and WO9I (Indianapolis). Still based near Indianapolis.

Frequent op at W9IMS ("Brian with an I"). Was an op for W87PAX, special event station for the Pan American Games -- the most successful special event operation of all time. I am a QSL manager for W87PAX, so if you still need a W87PAX card, feel free to QSL me direct or via bureau.

You can also QSL me direct or via bureau if you're looking for a card from W9VW through April 2015, including W9VW/5 (Field Day operations in New Mexico), W9VW/0 (Field Day operations in Colorado) and W9VW/B (our former beacon at 50.069 MHz), as I am a member of the Legion of Indianapolis DXers.

DXCC (Mixed, CW), WAZ (Mixed), WAS (40 meters, CW), WAC, WPX (Mixed, CW) -- primarily interested in DXing and contesting. Ten-ten No. 45528. Member of the Indianapolis Motor Speedway Amateur Radio Club (W9IMS) and the Legion of Indianapolis DXers (W9SU).

Freelance writer/editor and former magazine editor and newspaper reporter. Author of articles published in QST, CQ and 73 magazines, as well as the nationally released (non-ham radio) book, "Expert Advice."

(Special note: Regarding my personal call of W9IND, I frequently operate portable in Indianapolis -- Marion County -- so if you need a QSL from my home QTH of Johnson County, you may be disappointed. However, if you need a sked from Johnson County, I will try to accommodate you.)

73 to all.
