managed by the IARU. QSL
bureaus world wide handle Amateur and SWL QSLs.

use this service. The Canadian
Incoming QSL Bureau is also supported by
The Regional Incoming
Bureaus (like this one) are staffed by local
volunteers and somewhat coordinated by RAC. The
bureau operating costs are fully supported by
you, the user.
VE/VA6 regional incoming bureau is operated by a
few dedicated, active DXer, volunteers in
Calgary and is not funded or supported by RAC or
regional radio clubs. As such, there is a need
to operate the bureau on a self-funding basis.
Although the Canadian
Outgoing QSL Bureau use requires RAC membership,
the national and regional incoming bureau
service does not and are provided, though RAC
support, to all licensed amateurs and SWLs.
Please keep in mind,
this Bureau is for incoming
cards only. All DX outgoing
cards go to the RAC
Outgoing Bureau. Cards for VE hams are now
to be sent to the

of Paper QSL
coming in through
bureaus world wide is
dropping. This is
largely due to the FREE
service provided by the
ARRL though their LoTW
on-line QSL system. It
provides a secure tool
to match QSO records and
report confirmation of
your QSOs. Many awards
can use these
confirmations instead of
cards. You may find
you're not getting as
many cards as you expect
because the contacts
you've made have
been confirmed on LoTW.
We strongly suggest you
register with LoTW and
up-load your logs. Check
it out the LoTW link on
the left of this page.
