QSL

Please follow these guidelines to obtain your QSLs with E51AMF. Please understand that the pilots will not be able to help with any log issues until AFTER the DXpedition goes QRT.

E51AMF Log Research Contact: e51amf@amateurfoundation.org. Please include your callsign, the date (UTC), time (UTC), frequency, and mode of our QSO.

 

Donations support QSL supplies and Buro cards.

ARRL’s Logbook of the World – highly recommended

LoTW will be uploaded when we return to the US, if not sooner.  This is the quickest and easiest method to confirm a contact for DXCC, WPX, and othe awards.

OQRS by Club Log – highly recommended

This is the preferred method for paper QSL confirmation.  After the DXPedition ends, you can order either a Direct or Bureau QSL card using the OQRS online QSL service provided by Club Log.  Existing Club Log users do not need to fill in the QSO details in your OQRS request, simply upload your logs.  Club Log does automatically completes QSO details from your upload.

You can also use Club Log OQRS manually without having to upload your log.

If you are not an existing Club Log user, please consider joining. See Club Log for more details about setting up a new account.

Our logs will be uploaded to Club Log in near real-time (up to 10 minute delay) and you can search clublog and order a card through OQRS.

Direct Mail

You can send your card via the regular Direct Mail system to the assigned QSL Manager.  One USPS Global Forever stamp or $2 USD minimum for DX stations is preferred.  Minimum for USA stations is an SASE.  Donations to the Amateur Foundation can be included and any excess postage will be donated directly to the Foundation.

Send your direct QSLs (read above guidance) to:

Bengt-Erik Norum K7ADD
16221 300th PL NE
Duvall WA  98109-7620

Please refer to the following points when requesting a QSL Direct:

  1. Make your QSO entries clear and readable, and recorded in sequence by date and Time.
  2. For US-based cards, include a self-addressed stamped envelope (SASE) with sufficient first-class return postage. A donation with your QSL request is always welcome and appreciated. Checks can be made out to “Amateur Foundation” and included with your QSL.
  3. For Non-US based cards, include a self-addressed envelope (SAE) with minimum $2 USD. A donation with your QSL request is always welcome and appreciated. Euro bills accepted in lieu of USD.
  4. Direct QSL requests received without a return envelope or sufficient return postage will be answered via the Bureau.

Bureau

For an efficient and faster return of your confirming QSOs, please use the Club Log OQRS System described above to order your QSL via the Bureau.  Bureau requests using OQRS are free.  OR you may use the regular QSL bureau (“via K7ADD”).  PLEASE ONLY USE ONE METHOD.

eQSL

eQSL will be uploaded when we return to the US.  Please double check to confirm that the details of our QSO match in Club Log, as little effort will be made to fix broken calls in eQSL.
