About Your Bureau

The International QSL Bureau system was established and is loosely managed by the IARU. QSL bureaus world wide handle Amateur and SWL QSLs. Some countries do not have bureaus at all, some have only outgoing bureaus while others only provide bureau services (incoming or outgoing) for their members (RSGB & DARC for examples).

RAC supports the Canadian Outgoing QSL Bureau and you must be a RAC member to use this service. The Canadian National Incoming QSL Bureau is also supported by RAC. 

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.

Your 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  Canadian National Incoming QSL Bureau.

A few words about  the ARRL Log  Book of The World (LoTW).

The volume 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.
