QSLs - Why no bureau? Bureau cards are slow. Extra work. They could come through my other routes:
G4BKI [RSGB] - won't make it. I have this callsign, but I'm not an RSGB member and don't send envelopes to their buro.
VP9KF [RSB] - might just make it if they don't discard them and if VP9GE gets them for me :-)
W4/VP9KF [ARRL] - I joined the ARRL but they are so slow in everything I doubt they will ever arrive(!) Why VP9KF?
For a few years I grew up in VP9. I also signed G4BKI/VP9 before getting a local callsign by taking a written and Morse exam. How often are you there?
We spend about 10% of our time here during the year. That's about 35 days of DXing. arfooter
