QSL Hints & Procedure

             (Critical to successful QSL'ing):


The following are a few elements that will help you with obtaining a confirmation card from a DX station you have made contact with:

1)Include with your QSL request:
    -If sending overseas, a
self addressed envelope of sufficient size to
     hold a standard size card and
for return postage to you (generally
     1 IRC or $1.00 US to $2.00 US)
    -If sending to a US address, a self addressed and stamped envelope
     (SASE)
of sufficient size to hold a standard size card

       Note-1: In some countries such as India, where foreign money is
                    prohibited, use IRC's (ask around if needed)
       Note-2: Not all DX stations belong to the QSL Bureau-Check
                    before sending via the Bureau

       Note-3: Not all Managers belong to the QSL Bureau-Check before
                    sending via the Bureau

       Note-4: Do Not send requests to any USA Bureau for any USA QSL
                   Manager. Send via regular mail to the Manager's address
