Reenvio mensaje de Alan Zack, K7ACZ, a quien
Mario HK3O dice que envió tarjetas de 5K3T. Lo que dice para los que no
entienden (además de la dualidad de direcciones) es que están pidiendo 2 IRCs
para mandar correo desde Colombia y que si recibió unas tarjetas de Mario, pero
de un correo de Diciembre de 2007 (antes de la operación de 160 mts!).
Cierra el comentario diciendo que 2 IRCs son demasiado caro por una
tarjeta, que trabaje a otro HK y espere mejores resultados. Cierra en todo
sarcástico diciendo "Recuerde, Mario no necesita su tarjeta, juegue al tono que
le toquen". ....comentario nada halagador....
-Ahi entramos a otro tema bien delicado....2 IRC's
para enviar correo desde Colombia? Otra "equivocación". Solo se necesita 1 (UN)
IRC. Con un IRC se va al Edificio Murillo Toro en Bogotá (el unico lugar que las
acepta) y le ponen las estampillas necesarias para 1 (un) importe de
correo, sean para donde vaya, Estados UNidos, Europa o Asia. NO,
repito NO se necesitan 2 IRC's. Generalmente lo que hacen los DXistas es
guardar los IRC's y reenviarlos a otras personas para solicitar otras tarjetas y
pagar el importe de plata del propio bolsillo.
Repito, los DXistas no nacimos ayer...a otro con

QRZ.COM shows 5K3T using a Florida PO Box address as his mail
drop because of the chance of his mail being lost if sent directly to
Colombia. His mail at the Florida PO Box may only be picked up once
or twice a year so returns may be slow. Even though QRZ.COM shows the
5K3T address as a Florida POB he also shows QSL via HK3O which is the same
POB. If you go to the HK3O look up you will notice he is asking for 2
IRC's as he mails your card from Columbia. I know it works as I just
received cards for HK3O and HK3BVD (in the same envelope) from Columbia with
Columbia stamps for a QSL request I sent to the Miami POB address in December
2007. So read the instructions on the HK3O qrz.com page. Don't send
a SASE to the Florida POB with USA stamps, they won't work from Columbia.
If you want the card send the 2 IRC's as he asks. If 2 IRC's are too rich
for you then work another HK station and hope for better results.
Remember, Mario doesn't need your card so play by his rules.

Subject: [Dx-qsl] EI7M and 5K3T
A couple of months ago I asked if anyone had received
160 meter cards from EI7M and 5K3T, and I was told not to hold my breath. EI7M
arrived last week, and from the antenna farm pictures on the card, I know why
they are so loud! Many thanks to the East Cork Contest Group, and yes, they do
5K3T is another story. I was told they have not
printed QSL cards and they do not QSL. I suggested they upload their contest
logs to LoTW, but that hasn’t happened. You may wish to consider whether or
not to work them in contests, because you apparently aren’t going to get a QSL
card. I hope they prove me wrong! Their card would bring me up to 92 confirmed
for 160 DXCC. It’s the ONLY needed QSL card I have out. Come on 5K3T, how
about a card?
Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got...till

QSL.NET if more users don't open their wallets and help financially. Please
