that it likely does come down to the almighty dollar when we get to

printer to print a QSL on my printer & then my sending it to you via

and mail it to ME? The stance that ARRL (through the DXCC
coordinator) is taking seems unreasonable and inconsistent (to me).

4. I've got an email from Mr. Moore dated Jan 28...here it is in its
entirety--with my email address edited out to prevent spam. (If you've
got a problem with this, email me & I'll forward you the email with

Hi Ernest:

Presently, e-QSLs cannot be accepted.

However, If you receive an E-QSL, then send it to the station you
worked and
they make reference on the card to confirm the QSO, then it could be
accepted. Other than that we could not accept it.

A question regarding rule #2 for DXCC:
"2. Written proof (i.e., QSL cards) of two-way communication
(contacts) may
be submitted directly to ARRL Headquarters for all DXCC credits
claimed. "

This means a card submitted for DXCC credit has come through the mail
or
does it have to have handwriting on it to qualify? The reason I ask
is eQSL

has established a service to print on cardstock the received eQSLs
that its
members wish to pay to have printed and mailed to them. Is there
anything
about these printed & mailed cards that would invalidate them for DXCC
credit?

Opinion - The ARRL is not going to do anything that will jepordize their
control and or income .... using eqsl could/would do both .... see March
2002 QST, "It Seems To Us" where financial woes relating to QST are
discussed.

The ARRL board of directors make the policy and decisions.... all others are
employees ... ask your respective division directors ... they can give a

Re: arrl is accepting eqsls for dxcc credit

Steve W3HF
 

I think we need to come up with a different term. The name "eQSL" still apparently means (to Bill) a QSL that is delivered electronically to the ultimate recipient. I have used the term "paper eQSL" to denote the paper card that eQSL will send to you for a service charge of US$1, but perhaps that term is confusing. It certainly seems like an oxymoron to me.
 
Bill made it clear that if eQSL sends a paper card, based on logs received (even electronically) from a station, then it is acting as a QSL manager and the cards would be valid. He specifically said that no signature or "stamp" was needed. I'm not sure what else might be required.

Subject: RE: Professionally Printed and mailed eQSL's 
Hi Rich:
Something does not sound right here. You are saying that Dave is
physically mailing out QSL cards by the US postal system? This is
news to me.

If you are my QSL manager and I send you my logs by e-mail, I am
sending them direct from point A to point B. Just as if I was sending
them to you by regular mail. This is OK. I remember somewhere several
years ago that some people used to get their logs over the air on
RTTY and another digital mode (AMTOR I think). Not a problem.

However, if as the result of a log being sent to E-QSL, someone goes
in and receives a card electronically and uses it for DXCC, that e-
QSL cannot be accepted for DXCC credit under rule 2. I spent a bit of
time with a simple shareware program to prove the unreliability of
that method.

However, if Dave, acting as QSL manager with station logs completes a
card (even one from his printer) and sends it by mail to you, this is
an acceptable exchange and we have see this often for several years
now. (assuming he phyiscally checks the log). Many people use self-
made cards from their printer. Each one is evaluated on a case by
case basis, and many times under Section IV rule 4(b) we have
conducted an audit to insure the vaildity of a card like this.

In cases like this it would be REAL nice if they used a stamp or
placed their initials or signature on it, but this is not required by
the rules. However, this issue has been discussed and has been given
some consideration.

To clarify, if Dave is sending out cards through the US Postal System
as the result of the log(s) he receives, this is OK. (This would
basically be operating as QSL manager).

Bill Moore NC1L
DXCC Manager

Bill,
I don't think it's a matter of the intricacies of the international postal
systems so much as the back door politicking up in Newington.  And, if you
want to up the ante by running QRPp, better try a different mode.  I've run
PSK31 from 5 to 75 watts and have had 599's at both levels, with an antenna
made of a soda pop can and some hookup wire.  I haven't tried it transmitting
thru my dummy load yet...  hmmm, now there's an idea.  Anyone wanna try
setting a new record?  Longest dx on 5 watts and a nonradiating dummy load. 
If it can be done, PSK's the mode.

Re: arrl is accepting eqsls for dxcc credit

Dick Thompson <wb0dul@...>
 

Hi Bill,
 
Well, I'm not on a crusade here.  I just want a clarification of what Bill Moore really said or what he meant when he said it.  A simple "If cards are printed by a printer and sent to you through eQSL and eQSL has verified your logbook, qualifies as a legitimate contact" should be enough.  I'm a supporter af the ARRL.  They have done a lot for amateur radio over the years.  But they should also take into consideration the cost of sending and (hopefully) receiving a QSL card for confirmation of a country. 
 
I think we should all write to Bill Moore.  His address is dxcc@....  We should push for a clarification from the League.  Bill simply manages the program, the League makes the decisions.  He says that he was quoted "out of context."  Well, I read his e-mail on eQSL and I don't quite understand his statement. 
 
Write to him.  Maybe a little pressure from everyone will help get a decision from the League.  It may not be the decision we want to hear, but at least we would know where they stand.

Dick,

Sure appreciate your efforts (and those of others as
well) at getting this issue resolved.  Keep up the pressure!

I'm kinda new at this, but lately, with the 14 to 29 Mhz
bands as open as they are, I get the idea that working
100 DXCC entities is nowhere near as challenging as
getting 100 paper QSL returns.  Maybey that isn't the
case when the sunspots dry up and blow away, but I
thought this DXCC challenge thingie was supposed to be
about radios, antennas, propogation, sleepless nights,
sensitive receivers and expeditions; not the intricacies
of the international postal systems.  The way it is, the
emphasis is on the wrong skill......... or am I missing
something here?? Maybe we need to run half watt QRP just
to even up the challenge.............or enter the 21st
century like the rest of the world.

Subject: RE: Professionally Printed and mailed eQSL's
Hi Rich:
Something does not sound right here. You are saying that Dave is
physically mailing out QSL cards by the US postal system? This is
news to me.

If you are my QSL manager and I send you my logs by e-mail, I am
sending them direct from point A to point B. Just as if I was sending
them to you by regular mail. This is OK. I remember somewhere several
years ago that some people used to get their logs over the air on
RTTY and another digital mode (AMTOR I think). Not a problem.

However, if as the result of a log being sent to E-QSL, someone goes
in and receives a card electronically and uses it for DXCC, that e-
QSL cannot be accepted for DXCC credit under rule 2. I spent a bit of
time with a simple shareware program to prove the unreliability of
that method.

However, if Dave, acting as QSL manager with station logs completes a
card (even one from his printer) and sends it by mail to you, this is
an acceptable exchange and we have see this often for several years
now. (assuming he phyiscally checks the log). Many people use self-
made cards from their printer. Each one is evaluated on a case by
case basis, and many times under Section IV rule 4(b) we have
conducted an audit to insure the vaildity of a card like this.

In cases like this it would be REAL nice if they used a stamp or
placed their initials or signature on it, but this is not required by
the rules. However, this issue has been discussed and has been given
some consideration.

To clarify, if Dave is sending out cards through the US Postal System
as the result of the log(s) he receives, this is OK. (This would
basically be operating as QSL manager).

Regards,

Bill Moore NC1L
DXCC Manager

Costas, write to Bill Moore at dxcc@a..., and express your feelings
to him directly. I agree that clarification is needed. A can of
worms has been opened by Bill Moore and now he needs to clarify what
he said and/or put it to rest.

Another issue here is: How do they (ARRL) know that a card is
printed by eQSL.CC and
mailed instead of being printed locally by the recipient? I think
that some type of signature
and/or rubber stamp endorsement at eQSL is essential.

Bill,
I don't think it's a matter of the intricacies of the international postal
systems so much as the back door politicking up in Newington. And, if you
want to up the ante by running QRPp, better try a different mode. I've run
PSK31 from 5 to 75 watts and have had 599's at both levels, with an antenna
made of a soda pop can and some hookup wire. I haven't tried it transmitting
thru my dummy load yet... hmmm, now there's an idea. Anyone wanna try
setting a new record? Longest dx on 5 watts and a nonradiating dummy load.
If it can be done, PSK's the mode.

73,
Jay - AA8QQ
