Station setup  

I was be active from A6 again from Dec. 20, 2011 to Jan. 10, 2012. Same set-up as before but more focus on 10/12 meters with the higher SF.

I operated as A6/VE6LB from Dubai from Jan. 9, 2010 to Feb 7, 2010 and Jan. 13, 2011 to Feb. 9, 2011.

These are part time, vacation operation. 100 watts and a G5RV-M antenna.

I made 6,700+ QSOs to date, mostly CW.

QSL Direct at QRZ or (OQRS on ClubLog), LoTW, eQSL or send me an email ve6lb@telus.net for a bureau card.

Postage from Canada to US is $1US and international is $2US. A new IRC is fine to anywhere. Insufficient postage requests will be answered via the bureau.

Logs are on-line log at ClubLog and uploaded to LoTW and eQSL (eQSL may no be until I'm home).

QSL MANAGER: I manage QSLs for a couple silent keys. RAC has change the outgoing bureau rules that limit my sending of cards as follows:

3C2MV/ VE6JO: Direct only! no bureau. QSOs are uploaded to eQSL and LoTW.

VA6IK: Bureau or direct are OK. QSOs are uploaded to eQSL and LoTW.

Direct QSL need $2US or 1 IRC and an SAE.

EXCEL ARRL DXCC Application QSO Record Form:

ARRL DXCC has released an Online Tool to record new QSO for submission for DXCC and Challenge credits. It's the way to go now. It's cheaper and faster than the manual method we've used to date. This tool will record your QSLs as you get them online. I strongly recommend the use of this tool. It can be found at: https://p1k.arrl.org/onlinedxcc/

I've created an EXCEL spread sheet (works fine with MS WORKS as well) that makes inputting and editing ARRL DXCC record forms easier. If you'd like a copy, please click the Link below.

EXCEL DXCC Tracking Form:    Since Logger32 www.logger32.net  provides for full tracking of worked, confirmed, submitted and granted contacts, I no longer support this EXCEL tool.
