How to request one of our QSL cards

Hei alle,

Quite a lot of you are interested in receiving one of our picture QSL cards and here we’d like to tell you how and how long it will take.

This is a short guide on how to write a reception report and request a QSL card from RNEI.
We happily accept reception reports from Shortwave, FM and On Demand listeners!

  • Have something you can write on (pen and paper or computer) ready.
  • Write down the frequency, date, time and how good you think the signal sounds (SINPO).
  • Write down what you are hearing and any comments you have about the show. Comments make us want to continue making shows and are the most important part of the reception report for us!
  • Start composing an email to us (qsl [@] containing your reception report (attachment is fine) and address if you want the chance to get a physical postcard QSL from us.
  • Attach any recordings you made to your email, we do like listening to these!
  • Click send on the email

Note: the QSL writing date is not the dispatch date. The Armenian Test isn’t accounted for in this table.

We are currently reading reception reports from January 2023, writing QSL cards from January 2022 and
sending eQSLs from January 2022.
We will issue one QSL card per show (per month) per listener. We try to send multiple cards in one envelope to save on postage cost which contributes to the delays in physical QSL cards.

QSLs are confirmed in order of their receipt. This makes it fair for everyone.
