QSL VU2PAI ---> Pai, VU2PAI has uploaded to LoTW about 100,000  QSOs  dating
back to 1995. He still has many paper logs, which sooner or  later  will  be
entered  into  his  computer.  Pai  still  has  traditional  cards  for  his
operations as VU2PAI/C, AT0PAI, AT2PAI and VU2PAI/50, as  well  as  for  his
IOTA  activities  from  St.  Mary's  Island  (AS-096)  and   Sacrifice  Rock
(AS-161). "Do not send 'green stamps'", he says: IRCs are all right, but  he
prefers you to affix "2-3 beautiful stamps" on your  envelope  to  him,  for
his collection (and do not forget to include a  self-addressed  envelope  or
address sticker). Queries can be sent to vu2pai[@]gmail.com [TNX VU2PAI]

QSL 3B9FR ---> Robert, 3B9FR "has health problems  that  have  been  keeping
him from operating and answering QSL cards",  The  Daily  DX  reports.  "The
health problem has been going on for some years and requires special  care",
so "hold your cards until further notice".

QSL VIA N3SL ---> Steve, N3SL is the QSL manager  for  two  special  contest
callsigns  issued  to  individual  GM  operators:  GM2V  (GM3WOJ)  and  GM5X
(GM4YXI). Additionally, GM7V, a long-standing club callsign,  is  moving  to
Steve as the manager. GM2V and  GM5X  QSLs  are  in  the  process  of  being
printed, but possibly not "in hand" before the end of the year.  GM7V  cards
are being shipped to Steve from Scotland, arrival date  unknown.  If  anyone
should need one of these calls confirmed for a 2010 DXCC submission,  please
send your request with a note, and Steve will confirm with  a  different  GM
card. If you've already sent him a request and need a card  now,  email  him
at n3sl[@]arrl.net. [TNX N3SL]

QSL VIA OH3WS ---> Pasi, OH3WS  says  that  the  OJ0W  (Market  Reef,  11-22
September 2010) and OH0/OJ0W (Aland Islands, 10 September 2010)  cards  were
sent to the OH Bureau a few days ago. His next  activity  from  Market  Reef
will be in April/May 2011.
