We prefer to QSL via ARRL’s
Logbook of The World
Here’s a summary of ZM2M’s current LoTW confirmations. We have over 33,000 QSOs and over 10,000 QSLs (log matches) through LoTW, enough to qualify for the mixed-mode, phone, 40m and 20m DXCCs (see below) and Worked All States award (see right):
If you want an actual QSL card from ZM2M or ZM4T in a hurry,
please post your card to:
ZL2AL, 87 Auckland Road, Greenmeadows,
Napier 4112, NEW ZEALAND
If you include at least US$2 and an envelope, we will send you a card back by air mail, generally within three days. If you do not provide sufficient funds or an envelope, we will send you a QSL via the bureau system so please be very patient - this can typically take a year or more. All “excess” QSL funds are greatly appreciated and go directly towards keeping the club on the air, helping to meet our costs such as:
- Printing and overprinting QSLs;
- Sending cards via the bureau;
- Buying and maintaining antennas, equipment, rope, gaffer tape, ancillaries ... and slick spuds for the spud gun;
- Other club bills such as tea and coffee.
Your donations to club funds are very welcome. From just an extra dollar to whatever you can afford, it all helps keep us on the air, improve our signal and improve our ability to hear you.
If you want a card but are in no hurry, please send your QSL via the bureau system and we will return one via the bureau. The round trip typically takes 18 months or more. Being environmentally conscious Kiwis, we do not automatically send cards for all QSOs so we won’t send you one unless you request it.
Please note that we always check QSO details against our log. While we may correct obvious typos or minor differences of timing, cards for seemingly nonexistent QSOs will be marked “Not In Log” and returned. However, your generous contributions to club funds will be much appreciated either way.
