W1 QSL Bureau

Welcome to the W1 Incoming QSL Bureau, sponsored by the Yankee Clipper Contest Club and staffed by over fifty dedicated New England radio amateurs who volunteer their time to distribute DX QSL cards to you.

Although the Incoming Bureau system operates under the support and guidance of the ARRL, you are not required to be an ARRL member to use it.

The W1 QSL Bureau receives DX QSLs from outgoing foreign QSL bureaus and DX stations. We sort the cards and mail them to hams having a first area callsign. We try to send out cards about four times per year depending upon the availability of cards from the DX bureaus.  Each year we process 150,000 to 200,000 cards.

The W1 QSL Bureau does not accept stamps or envelopes. We require that you send money credits rather than SASEs.  We can use the exact postage which is needed for your shipment plus a 10 cent envelope charge. It is also less expensive for you as no funds are wasted on unnecessary postage.
