FISTS QSL Bureau
Americas Chapter QSL Bureau - Closed
To All FISTS CW Club Members:
After handling well over 400,000 QSL cards since 1997 and due to a lack of
incoming QSL cards, the Americas Chapter QSL Bureau is now Closed.
Please DO NOT send any QSL cards to the Americas Chapter QSL Bureau.
Send your QSL cards direct to FISTS members.
ALL BUREAU QSL CARDS HAVE BEEN MAILED OUT TO THE MEMBERSHIP AS OF NOV 22, 2016 !
Disposition of QSL Bureau Envelopes and Credits
Envelopes have been sent back to the "6" and "7" call areas. This is a very long and
time-consuming and expensive process and will take many months to complete. Addresses
have changed and additional postage needs to be added to many of the current envelopes.
We are asking the membership to help speed up this process by selecting one of the
options below to tell us what you want done with your bureau envelopes.
Please select one of these options below and send an e-mail to
to let us know what you want done with your envelopes.
1. Mail my envelopes and / or credit back to me.
2. Send me a refund of the total postage on my bureau envelopes and / or credit and discard the envelopes.
3. Add one month onto my FISTS membership for each $1, (or portion thereof), of the total
postage on all my envelopes and / or credit and discard my envelopes. If over $10 you
will get 12 months added per each $10, (our current membership rate).
Examples for option #3:
3 envelopes with $.47 postage on each would be a total of $1.41 = 2 added months.
1 envelope with $.42 postage and a credit of $4.00 would be a total of $4.42 = 5 added months.
8 envelopes with $.33 postage on each and a credit of $12.31 would be a
total of $14.95 = 17 added months. (12 months for $10 and 5 months for $4.95)
Please contact us by Jan 31, 2017. After this date Option #3 above will be used
and all envelopes will then be discarded.
Thank you for your help.
73, Dennis K6DF
