Hello, 
I use LoTW, all contacts made from my home QTH  get logged, 
            I have uploaded to sights like Club Log,   QRZ,com ,  QRZCQ.com,   mostly as  a courtesy to those that refuse to use LoTW.
           
            not eqsl, screw those fools,  their just trying to cash in ..

I use LoTW, 
I QSL Direct when you send a green stamps, or SASE. (see below). 

I will QSL in person if you come to my QTH,      Bring Beer . be prepared to spend some time.. Hi Hi

DO NOT SEND VIA THE BURO
if you want a paper card
DX stations, US $1  only $1
US stations an SASE/ or  $1.

a word about SASE 

Self Addressed Stamped Envelope

Hey, this topic  gets some folk's blood boiling !
Here's my take..
I live in a semi RARE place, Idaho,
I live in a semi RARE Grid, DN32.

yes, I could afford  a stamp on every QSL  I receive,
BUT,
when I need a new grid, or state, or whatever,, 
I always send an SASE,
.... 

So I expect you to send me an SASE too.

 
It just makes the process  easier,  fewer mistakes
in addressing, and takes less time.
I Return 100% with SASE's
And I return them FAST , usually the NEXT day,

I also use ARRL  LoTW

 so: Send SASE's to everyone

 

 

 

 

 

 

STOP
DO NOT SEND VIA THE BURO            
       STOP                      D O NOT SEND VIA THE BURO
                STOP

I've used the BURO for years and years ,, 
               NO Longer,
I need to be an ARRL member to use the Outgoing
Buro. 

After being an ARRL member for most of 57 years
I am in total disagreement with their vision of the future of ham radio, I refuse to join their ranks again. So no outgoing cards.

SO
No Buro, if you send to the Buro, your card will eventually end up in a trash can. 

No Buro, si envías al Buro, tu tarjeta eventualmente terminará en un cubo de basura.

No Buro, als je naar de Buro stuurt, zal je kaart uiteindelijk in een vuilnisbak belanden.

No Buro, si vous envoyez au Buro, votre carte finira par se retrouver dans une poubelle.

No Buro, あなたがBuroに送ると、あなたのカードは最終的にゴミ箱に終わるでしょう。
 

DO NOT SEND VIA THE BURO
if you want a paper card
DX stations, US $1  only $1
US stations an SASE/ or  $1.


NO IRC's

OK,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, you don't like SASE's, 
THINK LoTW from the ARRL,
My take on awards.
Sooner or Later everyone and his brother will be issuing all sorts of awards,   you know Eqsl, QRZ.com,  Dirty Harry's CB shop, etc and the list will just grow and grow. as long as money is involved.  
 
none of these ""made up"" awards mater,
their as useless as used toilet paper
you new guys get some savvy,
only the ARRL and a few CQ award count for
more that shit,
 
yes I know CQ  uses some  Eqsl functions ....
The "real thing" in awards come from the ARRL. 

why send green stamp after green stamp , or SASE's when LoTW does the job for the awards that maters.

SIGN UP AND USE LoTW.. 
once you get over the learning curve you will love it ..   Note: the learning curve is a bit frustrating.. 
I  think they have improved the software,
so maybe it's become easier to install ??
 

all my home qth contacts are uploaded to LoTW !   sorry, I don't keep a mobile Log .

Good DX and many happy contacts to all
