Republic of Moldova flagI'm going to be active as ER/IK1HGE from Republic of Moldova in August 2019 (not yet ssure about dates), on all HF amateur radio bands from 80 m to 10 m, CW and SSB with 100 W, a G5RV antenna and/or dipoles homebrewed on the field in case of need.

QSL via IK1HGE, via bureau  or direct to my italian address. Keep in mind that I can send out the QSLs via bureau only once a year, normally in October.

Be informed also that, starting this year, I'm no more immediately sending out all the QSL cards upon my return home, as I did in the past years, rather I'll just reply to your QSLs. Furthermore, I will not send back the contributions for the postage, but will use them to buy the post stamps, as well as SASEs (from Italy) and SAEs. Actually, it never happened that an italian thought to send a self stamped envelope to me, and never happened that a german thought not to send me a new IRC or 2 USDs (that I have just sent back, up to now). It must just be casuality...

IF the SASE is missing or the postage contribution is not enough to buy the post stamp, I just reply via bureau.

Since I have no PC in Moldova, my station logbook is made of paper. So, only if I have time to copy it into an electronic format, I also upload the QSOs to ClubLog, else I won't.

No LotW, no eqsl, no OQRS, no whatever other form of either real or virtual QSL service.

I plan to be active during the YO DX HF contest, presumibly sop CW. Look for me and spot my frequency, please!

Stay tuned for possible further news...

Roberto
