    Getting QSL cards

    QSL Manager: Mary Ann Crider WA3HUP

    Please, an SASE at least. If you can include a contribution or an order for a souvenir, even better.

    For your first contact with XR0Y or XR0Z, you will be sent a valid QSL card in the U. S. mail the next day after the QSO, if your address is available in a readily available database such as HamCall.

    All QSOs beyond the first will be handled by the QSL manager.


    For all QSOs with XR0Y and XR0Z, an e-mail QSL will be sent to you automatically within 1 day after the QSO, if your call and internet address appears in the database maintained by Fred Lloyd, AA7BQ, at flloyd@qrz.com. To add yourself to the database, use http://www.qrz.com/ or send the following e-mail message "qrz_update yourcallsign youremailmailaddress" to update@qrz.com.

    Am I in the radio log?

    The expedition maintains a computer log of all radio contacts established from Easter Island and Salas y Gomez. This data will be used to generate QSL cards that will be sent out via U.S. Mail. We have also installed a search function so that you may determine if your contact has been registered and that you are on the mailing list.


    One method of fundraising for the EI/SyG expedition is through the sale of souvenirs. Each of these souvenirs is high quality and guaranteed to please.

    Mug text reads: Easter Island on one side, Salas y Gomez on the other with dates, callsigns, and Cordell Expeditions logo.
