Biography

Concerning all qsl cards that I receive I MAKE IT A DUTY TO REPLY AS SOON AS I RECEIVE THEM SO THEY WON'T PILE UP ON ME.

Out of 5000 QSO LOGGED I have received roughly 120 CARDS only.
Won't make a fortune out of THAT.


I AM AN ORDERLY PERSON.

I write on the envelope the date I received it. Next to the postal seal.

I write the band and mode.

I write if there's either
money, pre stamped envelope (mostly from France, it goes without saying),
Or international redeem .

I double check in my log.
Not in the log NO QSL
AND I SEND BACK,CARD, MONEY ,AND A NOTE TELLING THAT I DIDN'T WORK THAT STATION.
I LOOK FOR QUALITY AND NOT QUANTITY.

Once mailed i mark SENT or QSL on both envelope and qsl cards.

I printed 2 sets of 1000 cards it's not to have them taking dust ???? .

Before I got them I used to print PHOTOS at 50 cents a picture. The 2000 cards recto verso cost me only 100 euros delivered in St Martin.

So if I was a gold digger or money hunter as it seems to be suggested I would do like some cheap operators sending me printed on cheap quality paper with ink jet that washed out after the rain ruined it before it arrived to me.

Plus whenever someone sends extra cash,
(and I can say that the two SWL sent generously )
it allows me to send a QSL to one who didn't put any money in the envelope.

This being said when the pandemic hit I noticed a 4 months delay between the postal stamps seals and the date of arrival.

Now it's between 2 and 5 weeks maximum.

By the way, when I used to print the photos the format was not matching US POSTAL envelopes. They were not fitting inside and I also had to buy envelopes.

I'm an honest person and I love the old fashioned way of paper QSL.
It's my pleasure to take my time and answer. I could use the printer and generate a sticker instead I use my pen.

It saddens me deeply to see that I am being treated as such.

But I guess that some people can feel good bashing others. Sick world.


Best regards

COVID 19 QST

HELLO EVERYONE

JUST TO INFORM YOU THAT THERE WILL BE SOME DELAYS IN ANSWERING YOUR QSL.

SINCE AUGUST 5TH COVID HAS GOT ME DOWN WITH 15 DAYS IN ICU AND NOW UNDER OXYGEN ASSISTANCE AND VERY WEAK.

MY SPOUSE IS COLLECTING THE MAIL AND WRITES THE DATE OF ARRIVAL ON THE ENVELOPE AS SHE SAW ME DOING IT .

ONCE I FEEL BETTER I WILL RESUME THE PROCESS.



SORRY AGAIN ABOUT THIS BUT I HAVE LITTLE CONTROL OVER THE MATTER.



TO ALL I WILL SAY DO EVERYTHING IN YOUR POWER NOT TO CATCH IT.



GOOD LUCK AND 73QRO.



COVID QST UPDATE
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 11TH 2021

MY SITUATION THANKS TO THE MEDICAL CARE AND THE STAFF EFFORTS HAS SOMEHOW IMPROVED.

ALL QSL CARDS THAT I HAVE RECEIVED THUS FAR HAVE BEEN ANSWERED AND POSTED.

I WILL DO MY BEST TO KEEP UP WITH THE PACE. ONLY MY GENERAL CONDITION WILL DICTATE HOW IT WILL BE.

ONCE AGAIN DO EVERYTHING IN YOUR POWER NOT TO CATCH IT.

GOOD LUCK AND GOOD DX

BEST 73QRO
