Since the 15th May 2016, I have decided to radically change my QSL exchange policy.

My new policy is based on my motto: "SV5 for all, for free"

So, currently, I inform you on the following:

1) I no longer collect paper QSL cards, so it not necessary to send me yours, unless you wish to.

2) Each Monday I upload last week's logs to LoTW, Clublog, and once every few months to logbook.

3) I will still use the outgoing QSL services of RAAG's QSL Bureau.

4) If you really need my paper QSL card, it's best to use my OQRS direct request, as it's fast, secure and most reliable. Just visit:

5) I have enabled OQRS for the following callsigns: SV5DKL, SV1DKL, J41DKL, J41Y, SX5R and SV5/SV1DKL.

6) If you choose to proceed with an OQRS Bureau request, bare in mind that it may take 0.5 - 2 years till you receive my card.

7) If you are not able to use OQRS system, you can either send me a direct QSL request via my snail mail address, or just e-mail me the QSO data you would like to receive a paper QSL card via the bureau for. Direct QSL requests are usually answered in a week's time from delivery.

8) Every incoming QSL card will be answered the same way it arrived.

9) For special calls I have used in the past (J41DKL, J41Y, SX5R) please don't use the bureau, due to services restrictions of RAAG's QSL bureau.
