Contact Info


I  no longer accept QSL cards via the bureau.  With both e-QSL and LoTW available I feel that these are easy ways to confirm a contact.  Cards can be printed from e-QSL. If you would like a card for contacts please send direct. 

I will  process direct QSL cards  in February 2017 when next at home.

If sending direct,  please ensure envelopes are at least 160mm x 115mm.

Direct QSL's should be sent to:                                                           

Mike Gloistein, GM0HCQ QSL Manager
27 Stormont Way
Perthshire PH2 6SP

For all direct QSL's please enclose  a SASE (for the UK) or a self addressed envelope with either  an IRC or   2x $1 notes  (as postage in the UK has now increased and the exchange rate is so poor)   to cover my postal costs.  Cards sent direct without either of these will not be QSL'd .

PLEASE NOTE THAT IRC MUST BE VALID AND IN DATE.  If not valid then I won't be able to QSL.

I am always delighted to receive SWL reports and am happy to QSL as above.

All logs are also on  e-QSL and LotW and are updated to: 

GM0HCQ/MM to 1st November  2015
VP8CMH/MM to 20th April 2016
VP8ROT to 18th January 2015
VP8SGK 18th January 2015

LoTW has been updated to 20th April 2016

The following are examples of  my current QSL cards:
