Any cards received direct without insufficient postage will be returned via the bureau.

If you would like an EQSL, I will send you one upon receipt of yours, however my preferred method of confirming
our qso is either via the bureau or direct with paper cards.
As I expect the path openings to be of a short duration, please be courteous to your fellow radio operators and myself by not calling when I have acknowledged a station. I will endeavour to work through any pile-ups as quickly as possible so as to work the maximum number of stations in the limited time available.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. I hope that I can help some of you towards your awards and/or maybe giving you an all time new DXCC entity for your log.
