Re: arrl is accepting eqsls for dxcc credit

Ernest, I dropped an e-mail to Bill Moore to ask for a carification on the DXCC acceptance of eQSL cards. 
Here is his response to me.  I wish it was more positive.  
Response from Bill Moore at ARRL: 
Hi Dick:
I was quoted out of context. If you read my message closely you'll see.
However, DXCC has not changed its position with regards to e-QSLs.

Hi Bill,
I received the following e-mail from the 070 site on Yahoo Groups.  Is there any truth to it?  I haven't seen anything on
Until I do, I'm not buying the announcement.  Many are waiting for word that it is true.  It would make sense if it was.  If it is, then an announcement would be nice.  The alleged e-mail from you is posted on the eQSL site (see link in message below). 
Hope to hear back from you.

Hello all.  ARRL is accepting eQSLs that are printed and mailed via
the eQSL mailing service for DXCC credit...this is big news.  The eQSL
cost is still a buck a card--less than direct DX postage in most cases
(I think) & a lot faster.  Currently eQSL can only mail out to US
addresses, but I expect that we might(???) see eQSL mailing points
cropping up in DX locations to provide the same service there w/o DX
postage costs.  That would be pretty cool...

News at:  (login and read the news...February 8, 2002 email
from Bill Moore, NC1L, is there in its entirety)

Thanks to Bob, VX4XA (VE4XA) for letting me know!
