The SKCC hosts a free QSL bureau for all stations, members and non-members, for confirming contacts. You do not have to be an SKCC member to send in card to hams that are "good in the SKCC buro."
Please QSL. Even though cards are not required for SKCC awards, members may be working for other awards and need your confirmation. Do not wait to receive cards before you send. When you have enough outgoing QSLs to fill an envelope, send them in, along with some self-addressed stamped envelopes (SASEs).
If you would like to use the bureau, send SASEs, with at least one unit of postage each, to the bureau. You may want to send in more than one SASE to start.
It is highly suggested to use only #10 business-sized envelopes (4-1/8" x 9-1/2") when sending SASEs to the bureau. This helps with organization; 99.9 percent of all cards fit into them without the need for folding.
For easier sorting, we require the following format for addressing your
When enough cards arrive to fill an envelope, the bureau will send them out. This may be 6 to 10 cards depending on weight.
The process for handling DX cards has yet to be determined. We may ask for payment instead of sending in envelops with postage. We will let you know when this is set up.
