The most reliable way to contact me is by email: Gary@isect.com  

I’m usually QRV around ZL dawn and dusk, prowling the greylines for fat juicy DX prey. During daylight in hours in ZL, I often monitor the bands while working and keep an eye on DXcluster for new ones. Some weekends you’ll find me contesting. I do not operate robotically or remotely. If you see ZL2iFB or ZM4G spotted or spotting DX on DXcluster, I am QRV on that band! Set up an alert for my callsigns in your logging software if that helps.

I use LoTW and upload my log daily. Use LoTW for a rapid, free confirmation from me.

By all means send me your QSL card. I enjoy exchanging and collecting picture postcards from radio friends around the world, including useful SWL reports (why not tell me something about band conditions, propagation, who else you could hear at that time and so on?).

If you want my QSL card, please ask me on-air or send me your card via the ZL bureau ... but be patient: the bureau system runs thanks to an army of volunteers.

For a quicker direct card, please send me your QSL with US$3 or €3 plus a self-addressed postcard-sized envelope to:

Gary Hinson, Castle Peak, 1262 Taihape Road, RD9 Hastings 4179, NEW ZEALAND

Sending a direct QSL overseas costs us NZ$3.60 - that’s more than US$2 just for the stamp, so US$2 doesn’t even cover that, let along the cost of the card and envelope. Please send US$2.50 or €2.50 via PayPal to ZL2iFB@Gmail.com. Specify the QSO you’d like me to confirm either in the PayPal comments or separately by email .

If you send zero or insufficient funds, I will respond v4kg of QSLs to goia the bureau ... but not direct, sorry.

If you send more than the cost of the stamp, I will channel any excess into my next DXpedition donation, with my sincere thanks for your kind generosity.

 

<-- Here is a 7kg batch of ~2,000 cards about to go to the ZL bureau.

I have been using GlobalQSL but their customer service sucks, so I’m never sure the cards have been printed and sent. Please let me know if you have been waiting for years for my QSL card and I’ll check the details. Alternatively, let’s have another QSO and I’ll send you a fresh card , no worries.

 

 

Lastly, listen for ZL2iFB or ZM4G in the next contest, DX pileup, on the FT8 decodes or the SOTA or QRP calling frequencies (least reliable of all but definitely the most fun!).
