LU & EU IARU QSL Societies return Bureau cards

I have temporarily suspended our Bureau dispatches to  Argentina until we can find out where the problem is.
Belarus bureau package has been returned to me endorsed “Returned due to expiry date” Expiry date of what?
59 QSL cards re-posted to Belarus Bureau 02/11/2015.
Argentina bureau package has been returned endorsed “Unclaimed”
I have emailed both QSL Bureau societies to find out what the problems are, until I hear from the two IARU societies QSL cards will not be able to be posted to Argentina.
Belarus bureau have confirmed that this was a post office error and the package has been resent.

Old IRC’s donated – Thank you


Thank you to Dmitry UA3AGW for the kind donation of old IRC’s. These will be cashed in and the money used to pay for QSL card printing & outgoing bureau costs.

If you have any old, out of date IRC’s even old yellow or blue ones, please don’t throw them away, you can post them to me and they will be put to good use.

Thank you Dmitry!

Do you have any?
