As previously discussed, SARA now operates a “QSL Bureau” service for outgoing DX QSL cards. SARA’s QSL Bureau (SQB) will collect cards from SARA Members on a quarterly basis, sort them into the correct order, and ship them to the ARRL Outgoing Bureau. This service is open to all SARA Members who are also ARRL Members (ARRL rules require ARRL membership). More information is available on our website at https://w8wky.org/sqb/. Many thanks to Java Miller N8JLM for volunteering his time in this effort.
