New 2013 qsl's are beiing handled and shipped out januari 2014.

15 November 2013:

5V7TH and TY1 dxpedition are the first dxpeditions were as donations are possible in BITCOIN !

Check: www.weusecoins.com/en/ 

Or check on youtube movie: http://youtu.be/_4QFErOdTag

And yes: if it was possible on clublog i also accepted it for qsl requests.

Why can i accept BitCoin?

Because i use this independant money for other service, and much safer than any other currency.

Everybody should use it, and the world would be a better safer place.
