QSLers Take Note
2009-09-30

This is a heads up to all DXers. If you do a lot of QSLing and regularly use IRCs (International Reply Coupons) you should be aware that the old-style IRC - the Michelangelo two fingers about to touch - has recently been replaced (as of July 1st 2009) by a new coupon - the Nairobi model IRC.

The old Michelangelo style IRC will be accepted for redemption at post offices around the world until December 31st 2009. However, anyone with a stockpile of this older IRC version should make plans to use those up ASAP - i.e. cash them in for international stamps for out-going QSLs. If you plan on including one of these older IRCs in a request for a return QSL, you should get those off in the mail before the end of September so that the recipient has time to cash them in at their end for return postage.
