Brit Fader Memorial QSL Bureau
Brit Fader (VE1FQ) ran the VE1 and VE0 QSL bureau for over 49 years. He was Mr. QSL and Mr. Field Day for many of those years. The Brit Fader Memorial QSL Bureau, respectfully named in honour of VE1FQ, is operated by HARC using the RAC “Method B” for funding this service. This means that any Ham wishing to receive QSL cards from the Incoming Canadian Bureau MUST establish an account with the VE1 Bureau in the Halifax Club Rooms. To set up or to update your account, please contact Tom Caithness VE1TOM@RAC.ca or visit the QSL Bureau in the HARC Station located in the St. Andrew’s Community Centre, 3380 Barnstead Lane, off of Bayers Rd. (outbound) just past Romans Ave. in Halifax.
The VE1 Bureau works like this. You deposit a minimum of $5.00 in your Bureau account and your account will be billed for postage when cards are mailed out to you; or, you can visit the Club Station when the Bureau is open – every Saturday morning and during the Social Hour prior to the monthly HARC meeting that takes place on the third Wednesday of each month – and pick up your cards and save the postal fee. In addition, your account will be charged $0.50 for each card pickup or mail-out to help defray our Bureau administrative costs.
Please enter your callsign below to see if you have cards and sufficient money in your account. If not send money to the Bureau at P.O. Box 8895, Halifax, NS B3K 5M5. It can take several weeks for your cheque to arrive at the QSL Bureau, be updated to the database and sent to the website before you will see your status change online.
If we have your email address on file, you will be informed when you should send more money.
If you do not want cards please advise Tom in writing at the above address or by e mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
BE ADVISED that cards on file for more than two (2 ) years will be purged from the system.
You can check your account status here.
PLEASE NOTE: If your call sign does NOT appear on the database you do not have an account and will NOT receive cards via the bureau. You can set up an account as described above.
If your account is NEGATIVE (-) please send the necessary money to cover this negative balance.
