Info – QSL policies – OQRS

We live in the northernmost part of Sweden, on the border of Swedish Lapland, 70km south of the Arctic Circle.
The main station, for bands from 23cm to 30m, is located in our house, a single house of 200sqm located in a village 20km from Alvsbyn with about 1500sqm of land.
For the 40/80/160m bands I am looking for a fully isolated dedicated solution.

QSL policies

SA2SAA-7S2A carries out regular QSL traffic via the Bureau.
The station responds to all QSLs arriving via the Bureau in the CW-SSB-RTTY modes while for FT8/FT4 traffic, due to the high number of QSOs generated and the reduced interest in these QSOs, the contacts are confirmed exclusively via LOTW (your QSL is anw appreciated).

In Sweden we pay an annual fee for the license (about 45 euros), the outgoing QSL service is not included, it costs about 3 euro cents per QSL sent.

All direct requests (OQRS or post mail) are in any case managed regardless of the mode of issue of the QSO.

Postal Direct Request (same rate worldwide) € 3 or $ 3 – IRC not accepted
OQRS (same rate worldwide) € 3.50

You can see the status of direct requests (OQRS or post mail) at this link

International Letter :

In North Sweden (Lappland) the postal service is managed by PostNord

International letter marked with “Prioritaire” label or with text “Prioritaire” on the left side of the stamp.

Bureau QSL

Direct QSL

My QSL are printed by Alfio Bonanno –


  1. I ALWAYS answer to ALL the OQRS requests that arrive to me (on my site I am reporting ALL the requests received with date of arrival and evasion)… you can check it here !
  2. Request a refund to paypal for a QSL card that has been lost from the post office or that you may have received (I do not have proof of receipt) is incorrect, maybe I forget to process it so I can accept any allert and solve in a while the problem.
  3. if you do not receive the QSL it means that the postal service has lost the shipment or that it is still too early, in any case I am not responsible for the inefficiencies of the mail in my or your country and the contribution you send often does not cover the cost of the QSL and a double expedition (in addition to my time and that of my manager), I hope you understand!
