Since the beginning of my HAM radio adventures I like QSL work. For many years I managed all special event calls of my club station. Of course I manage my personal call SP5UAF, my former contest call SN5M and all of my poratble expeditions: 5B4/SP5UAF, MU/SP5UAF, LX/SP5UAF, CT8/SP5UAF, CR1Z etc.

Since the begining of 2009 I am the QSL manager of my friend Mirek SP5IXI/VK6DXI (Silent Key) for the following of his calls: 7X0DX, 9M8DX, 9M8DX/2, Z21DXI and TF/SP5IXI.

The style of my QSL work

Logs for the callsign I manage are always open and you can always ask for a QSL card. I am here to help you get the card.

General QSL information

Bureau cards: Send just via SP5UAF. I usually receive incoming cards two or three times a month and I reply via the bureau usually once or twice a month (the same applies to email requests for bueau cards).

Direct cards: Use the following address: Tomasz Barbachowski, Zeromskiego 10, 05-070 Sulejowek, Poland

Important notice for direct requests: I noticed that sometimes the return envelopes are addressed the wrong way. One of the common errors is placing your address (label or hand-written) without the name of your country. If I am only able to notice this mistake I always write the country name myself below the address. If not – possibly the envelope just goes to trash after sending it. Please remember: Your return address must be complete.

OQRS: Logs of 7X0DX, 9M8DX, 9M8DX/2, TF/SP5IXI and Z21DXI as well as my personal QSOs are uploaded to the ClubLog (OQRS enabled for bureau and direct requests). I usually reply to direct/OQRS requests within five days, usually the same week. However sometimes there are two or three weeks delays due to large number of my professional duties.

Important notice for direct OQRS requests 1: If your worked numerous callsigns I manage (ie. 9M8DX and 9M8DX/2 and Z21DXI etc.), it is not necessary to send money for each callsign/QSL. If you would like to confirm more than one QSL-call via direct please send money via PayPal only for one of the calls and then please let me know via email that you need QSLs also for other callsigns I can confirm. It is not a problem: I will place all cards in one envelope. We use OQRS to make things easy not to earn money.

Important notice for direct OQRS requests 2: This note relates to Japanese friends mostly. I noticed that very often there are special, typically Japanese letters-characters in the address sent via PayPal/OQRS. I can’t be sure and I have no way to check it if they are displayed correctly and – what is even more important – if they are printed correctly on the envelope. I believe they are but I can’t verify it.

Managed QSL calls


I have almost complete logs. There are some PSK31 QSOs missing from the log. Everything I have was uploaded to the LoTW. If you need paper QSO here is the lin to the OOQRS: https://secure.clublog.org/logsearch/7X0DX.

9M8DX, 9M8DX/2

For 9M8DX I have logs starting from 1991 and for 9M8DX/2 starting from 1999. I am not sure if they are complete. Mirek was active from Malaysia many times. His first activities were logged on paper and have never been transferred to a computer log.

All logs I have are uploadedto the LoTW.

OQRS for 9M8DX: https://secure.clublog.org/logsearch/9M8DX

OQRS fro 9M8DX/2: https://secure.clublog.org/logsearch/9M8DX/2


In the past Mirek was living in Singapore and was very active there. Then he moved to Australia. The 9V1XE callsign was reactivated in April/May 2015 and Mirek had plans to operate from 9V more often. Unfortunately Mirek 9V1XE (SP5IXI/VK6DXI) suddenly passed away on April 14 of heart attack (more details).

The complete April/May 2015 activity of 9V1XE (about 1,2k QSOs) is uploaded to the LoTW and the ClubLog. Sorry but I have no any other logs of 9V1XE for old activities.

There is an OQRS for bureau/direct cards: https://secure.clublog.org/logsearch/9V1XE. However I would like to inform that all QSLs will be automatically sent via the bureau. Special memorial QSL cards were donated by the SP DX Club.
