We are under increasing pressure to reduce the cost burden to both our own bureau, and the IARU bureaus in processing tens of thousands of bureau requests each year. So to help in this matter I will now be sending the following email to all people who request several bureau cards at a time and to ask the claiment for a small donation towards costs. In return the QSL cards will be sent directly and delivered to them within 10 days of request, therfore lightening the load for the bureau system;
The financial burden from bureau requests to both the QSL manager and the IARU bureau is an ever increasing problem. In order to keep these financial costs to a lower level we are now asking multiple QSL requests to consider paying a small fee.
£5 GBP up to 10 QSL cards
In return, and instead of receiving those QSL cards in maybe one/two years through your bureau, we will mail out the QSL cards to you by Priority Air Mail wiithin 3 days of your request being made. Thank you! ”
