New Zone 19 record….


New QSO/hour record was set up in the last CQ WW SSB Contest 2010 by Vladislav Sitnikov, UU5MAF, operated at RC0F.

Vladislav managed to score 322 QSO during one hour!!! Soon, his result will placed in ‘the best QSO rates in Contests’ table at

Vladislav is the only contester from Russia and Ukraine to achieve such a high score. Also, in this contest Vladislav claimed for new 19 Zone record. Once again, I’d like to mention that this result was scored from the Sakhalin Island, and it will be the only result from Asia.

Vladislav operated from Gennady, R0FA, ex UA0FAI station, with quite a simple setup. 4 elements SteppIR, Optibeam 4030, FT2000 and Acom 2000 PA.

Well done Vladimir!!

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.
best 73’s


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.

TC3WFF & TC3A from new LZFF…..


From 24 to 30 November 2010 will take place WFF NEW ONE expedition TC3WFF and TC3A (CQ WW Contest) in National Park Kus Cenneti (Bird Paradise), TAFF-022.

The expedition is organized by “LZ Contest group” and Bulgarian radio club “LZ Flora Fauna”, and will be active on HF bands 160-10 meters SSB, CW.
They will also participate in the CQ WW CW Contest 27-28 November 2010 (only TC3A).

QSL for TC3A via LZ1NK and for  TC3WFF via LZ1ZF

to Buro today…….


Cards done and to be sent to the RSGB Bureau this week are:-

G4RCG 45, MØIAA 49, MW0OXO/P (WFF) 85, MØOXO 100, GB0WFF (WFF) 75, GB2NSF 180.
Latest batch from the Buro arrived last Wednesday and were processed by Saturday.

I am now moving on to assist Igor RA3CQ to confirm hundreds in his logbook as he has experienced serious problems in the Buro system at his side.
Along with Tim M0URX, we declined his generous offer to assist with costs and instead we offered to sponsor the printing of his cards, labels and postage, in an attempt to help him out.
I am hopeful that the ‘black cloud’ hovering around his enjoyment of the hobby may now be lifted and once more he can enjoy the hobby as is intended.
