QSL Info de DK8FD and HB9EXW

Normally every QSO will be automatically confirmed with a QSL card.

But please understand, that due to some lack of time, this can take

"a few weeks longer".

QSL via Buro is always welcome, save your money and use it for an own nice printed card. (I am still not interested in e-qsl and will not confirm e-qsl)

QSL via direct - please be aware, that german postal is expensive.

Direct QSLers are kindly requested to attach a SAE and sufficient postage.
Sufficient postage for return letters is currently (Jan 2013

EU / DX : 0,75 EUR-stamp / 2 USD

(please be aware, that in the past some QSL-cards with IRC did not arrive at the QSO-partner - so it's on your own risk. Therefore 2USD or stamp is prefered)

Please use only the new type IRC. Old type IRCs are not accepted. Direct QSL requests with the old type IRC or not sufficient postage are answered via the buro.
