Information recieved via a colleague is that the Post Office are about to start the next stage of the withdrawal of International Reply Coupons from the UK very soon.
"QSL Via M0OXO" will now be phasing out the use of IRC's for exchanging QSL cards.
I will continue to sell IRC's for the time being while I have stock.
This is completely out of my control so I am sorry that as from the end of 2012 NO IRC's will be accepted.
I do not have a date that the Post Office will stop accepting IRC's it is likely that the service will just be withdrawn without notice.
QSL exchange after this time will be $2 by post or OQRS €2 ONLY
Suggestions are that maybe they should wait until the current run of IRC's (valid until 31/12/2013) expire but no clarification on that yet. Any updates will be posted here.
