I collect QSL cards (cards confirming 2 way contacts with other radioamateurs), my goal is to have at least one QSL from every country on the world on each HAM radio band.
Here you can browse in my collection (only selected cards, the whole collection is too big...). Open the country/zone list and click the prefix/zone to see the cards.

Despite the fact I have worked all existing DXCC countries I would like to work all on CW (morse code) only, the following I badly need:

  • FT - Crozet Island
  • SV/A - Mount Athos
  • ZS8 - Prince Edward, Marion Island
  • P5 - North Korea
  • Just 4 contacts needed but it can be a task for many years...

    QSL policy

    I like paper QSL cards. But sending QSL is time consuming work, it creates load to QSL bureau etc. So I prefer to exchange the QSL cards that have certain importance for receiver only. I treat each QSO/QSL individualy, I never send QSLs for all stations worked in contest etc.
    I follow this rule: if the QSO/QSL is important for me (new country on particular band or mode,..) I fill the QSL immediately after QSO. If highly important I send the QSL direct by mail (in average less than 10 per year), otherwise I pass my QSL to bureau. Also when the QSO partner expresses a clear wish to receive the card, I fill the card immy, too. Otherwise I just reply to QSLs I receive - if I got the card by mail I answer direct, when card obtained via bureau I reply in the same way (more than 90% cases). If I don't find the QSO in my log I return the original card with note "not in log". Statistics show I exchange QSL in about 20% of all QSOs.
    I send all my QSO data to Lotw and Clublog several times per year - for those not using paper QSL. I don't participate in eQSL.
    I would appreciate if other stations follow similar policy. Anyway, if you send the QSL for each QSO (I undertand some people feel that as obligation) and you don't need my card, don't cross "PSE QSL" on it. Write "not needed" instead (as I sometimes do, too). It saves resources (at least it is ecological).

    Here you can see my own QSL card:
