QSL Routes

Important notes

CHANGES IN THE PROCESS OF BUREAU CONFIRMATIONS BEGINNING 2018!
I will no longer be a member of the DARC from Jan 01 2018! Therefore, there are some changes in the confirmation process of bureau cards. Bureau cards that arrive after Dec 31 2017 can not be considered and go back with the mark ‘Not member of DARC‘. QSL card confirmations for DL5DCL will only be possible via eQSL or direct/direct OQRS. DL5DCL/p COTA activity, PA/DL5DCL, EA6/DL5DCL only direct/direct OQRS! Please ignore bureau option in OQRS!!!

QSL EXCHANGE FOR SPECIAL EVENT CALLSIGNS WITHOUT CHANGES!
DL4ØRCE, DQ1175E and DLØAF cards can further send via DARC bureau, simply without the note ‘via DL5DCL‘! Alternatively bureau OQRS is further possible!

Direct cards for DL4ØRCE and DQ1175E can further sent to the address of DL5DCL or direct OQRS!

Direct cards for DLØAF please via DK1OU, or eQSL. Direct OQRS will be no longer available. From January 2018 I will no longer be responsible for DLØAF.

Beginning 2018, QSL Routes will be completely revised and offer alternatives to the QSL receipt for the future. Until 2018, the following regulations below remain valid!

QSL via DL5DCL applies for several callsigns, because I am owner/responsible or simply the QSL manager of the callsign. The following QSL rules applies for:

DL4ØRCE, DQ1175E, DLØAF *, DL5DCL, DL5DCL/p COTA activity, PA/DL5DCL, EA6/DL5DCL

* DLØAF is also possible via DK1OU bureau, direct and eQSL

Please accept that I answer only all incoming requests because of possible logging mistakes, missing details about QSL manager or maybe non-bureau members! In addition, I am also an avid cards collector ;). Your QSL is not absolutely necessary if you prefer the option OQRS.
Contacts with my homecall DL5DCL are always answered instantly via bureau and excluded from this rule.

Direct requests

NO IRC's, NO STAMPS OR ANY COINS ACCEPTED AS RETURN POSTAGE! ANY RECEIVED OR INSUFFICIENT POSTAGE = RETURNED VIA BUREAU!

A normal STANDARD, SINGLE CARD request costs 2 USD! Possibly offered DOUBLE CARDS 3 USD! Unlimited confirmations per callsign. SAE needed!

If I offer both card types and receive 2 USD, I returned with a normal standard QSL card. Please look careful all offered or prefered QSL card types before you request a direct card!

Direct cards should be sent to:

  • Dirk Löbner
  • Bruchstr. 11
  • 59597 Erwitte
  • Germany

Bureau requests

Cards received via bureau = returned via bureau.

eQSL & LoTW

eQSL is currently possible only for DQ1175E contacts. Please do not send any requests for contacts with one of my other calls! You can request your eQSL with a remark 'please also paper QSL via bureau' and you get a real card. Your own paper card is not needed if you prefer this option.

No log file uploads to LoTW, sorry - not yet ;)

OQRS

The Online QSL request service, provided by ClubLog, is not always an option. Whether OQRS is available you can see at the button "Request QSL card" after your search in the Online logs!

Please read why OQRS is more expensive than a conventional direct QSL card:

OQRS is handled through Paypal what calculates the payee a fee. Click here for the Paypal fee schedule. To offset the costs I calculate a charge of 3 USD FOR STANDARD QSL CARDS, 4 USD FOR DOUBLE CARDS, unlimited confirmations per callsign! Your QSL is not needed, what means, you save your QSL request postage.
OQRS with via bureau option is also possible and for free, but takes longer.

DQ1175E limited QSL card

You can choose between a REGULAR STANDARD, SINGLE QSL TYPE and a SPECIAL, LIMITED EDITION QSL CARD, a double, folded, full color card with some extras in an amount of only a few hundred pieces! This card will be a rarity and is strictly limited!

The DQ1175E special, limited double card is only available via OQRS for a charge of 4 USD (?) and also via direct for a charge of 3 USD, but not available via bureau!

The DQ1175E log was uploaded to eQSL.cc on July 28 2013. All eQSL users get automatically a special eQSL edition card. Preview of all available DQ1175E QSL card types.
