Complaint about my Qsl Managing…..



hello, thanks for your mail. i send every qso card to all contact i worked at home same as portable or iota activation. It’s the first time who a OM said i have to pay to receive a return qsl confirmation card.
So you can keep your’s. I think that some other’s OM will be active in the futur  the same place.
Sorry for derangement.

Hi Laurent, thanks for the reply.

I am not sure how long you have been requesting cards from Managers but I find it very unusual if you are receiving them all back without any mentioning the lack of payment by you. I would be interested in knowing who they are for sure as they are indeed offering a great service.

It is and has been the proceedure for Qsl Managers to ask for a contribution for their Qsl service for many years and it would be rare indeed if none did. Please note I mention ‘service’ and not just a ‘qsl card’. In most cases you are contributing towards the cards, labels, envelopes and time of the Manager. If the Manager did not exist it would be very likely that you wouldn’t receive a card at all from thousands of people as they simply do not like doing the job.

I am sorry if you feel you are victimised here but I can assure you that is not the case. Have a look on and check out other stations such as 9M6DXX, CE2WZ, 3C0C, K5D, VP8DMH, VP8LP, ZD8Z, ZS8M, ZS9AH, EB7DX, EA7FTR (the list is endless) and see what proceedure they adopt.

I will forward your card and comments to the guys in Brazil and they may indeed reply to you but it will be extremely unlikely you will get a card from them without offering the standard contrubution of either $2US or 1 IRC.

Thanks for your input Laurent, I will add the message to my feedback page so that other Amateurs can both good (and in this case) bad comments in relation to the service I offer.
Kindest regards,



Just a precision, i send and i will send $ stamps and all things when i really want qsl card ( dxcc-iota some specials event) for PX2C ; i don’ t
really need it. Many time with english managers;  i join stamps for the return qsl but-and at this moment i havent anymore english stamps. When i’ll need some confirmation i will send/ask like regard to you and your all.
tnx also for your work and “devouement” at our hobbie.

I was born in the 1960’s and have lived all my life in the Coal Mining Town of Barnsley in South Yorkshire, Northern England. My parents were all from this area of Yorkshire and my father worked in the main Industry of the local Collieries as a face worker. I have been married to my wife Debbie for 35+ years and we have two children and two grandchildren.

I have been licensed for around 20 years after my interest was re-kindled when I retired from my role as a Police Officer within South Yorkshire Police Force. The latter few years were spent as Radio Operator in the Force Operations Control Room at Sheffield, before my career ended.

IOTA chasing is (and always has been) my real passion, as climbing the ladder to reach Honour Roll status was always my main aim. The 1000 Islands Trophy is still out of reach but I am heading in the right direction. I am currently a Board Member of IOTA Ltd and IREF.

In my free time I am a keen Photographer of Wildlife, Aviation, (anything really) but the QSL Manager role is my main passion within Ham Radio.
