What ist it ? : What are the QSL Information Pages ?

These pages contain BC-DX QSL-Information for DX'ers (compiled from various printed or Internet resources) from the beginning of the 90'ies until now. Most information are about SW, some on MW and FM and a few about LW. The stations in each region are arranged country by country in alphabetical order. And I'll decide on my own, what's a "country" and what's not !

These pages are not intended as a "veri-signer" list !  I want to present all the information about the QSL's / answers from the stations, like answering time, souvenirs, return postage and soon. These pages are intended as an archive about QSL received .. . since 1980. I started these pages in 1997 as a hobby-venture, at that time there were 'only tiny bits of texts, hard to read' (as a reader said after they were gone). The content and the layout are a little better now ... ! Since Jan 2003 I'm presenting the logs in 'columns'.

Your comments, suggestions and even contributions are very much wanted !

These pages are not for Utility stations, not for Beacons and not for those free/pirate radio stations. The only exception from official BC stations are Time Signal Stations, the Japanese 'Lighthouse' stations and of course Clandestine Stations. A few semi-pirate stations are inculded as well. (And since 2020 we have an NDB, since there is no other radio on that island).

Relay stations of large international broadcasters (active from different sites) as well as 'target programs' will be handled in a separate section at the end of the country where the transmitter is located.

I heavily rely on you, the readers! I don't know all. So, please do send me corrections if you'll find any errors, especially for all the local FM stations, that's very very difficult for me ... I hope to hear from you !


Instructions : How to submit my own QSL-logs ?

If you'll send me your own QSL logs, please be so kind to try to fulfill the following points (in order to make it easier for me !) : 

  • arrange the QSL logs after world-regions and inside the regions after the country-name in English

  • write the country name in the first line (no capital letters please), the station name in second line, the kind of service (Domestic or External or Relay or Clandestine) in the 3rd line, the qsl logs starts in the 4th line

  • the content of the QSL-log itself totally belongs to you, I'll not alter this !

  • end the QSL logs with your name, the ITU-country code of your location and the date (only month + year) you received that QSL (the date in a new line)

  • BC-DX QSL's from SW, MW, LW and FM welcome ! (no utlity, no pirate radio logs)

  • Your contribution will look like this in the end :

    Equatorial Guinea
    R Nacional Malabo
    Radio Nacional Malabo 6250, confirmed after follow up in 80 days with full data QSL, v/s Manuel Sobede, Inspector de Servicios de Radio TV. Return postage was .. and the address I used was ...
    direct to QIP
    Feb 1999

You can also send your qsl logs in a Excel-file. It should contain the following columns :


Here you can download a sample file for contributions : download QIP sample file (zip-version of an MS Excel file)

Please do not send any pictures, except pictures from Clandestine stations - these are very very welcome !

And even direct QSL-logs from the QSL-section-editors of the DX-clubs are a very helpful thing ! But please ask the main editor at first !


Sources : Where does QIP gets all these information ?

The source of the published logs are always given below the log. In all cases the date of the publication of that logs is added, he but that's not necessarily the date when the QSL was received. Please be aware that some printed magazines have long delays when reporting QSL logs (up to 3 or 4 months). In most cases I do not use abbreviations but the full names of the magazines or newsletters. Due to the different sources these pages enclose logs in English, German, Spanish, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Portuguese and perhaps a few other languages.
