Several QSL managers from all over the world write that they can change IRCs only if they were stamped in the lower left corner by the issuing post office. But this stamp is marked "facultative". Furthermore it is also illegal to deny to redeem IRCs from past calendar years.
This is now my second year as editor of the DX Newsletter and we have got hundreds of new readers especially via e-mail and internet. The next issue will be published on Jan 4, 1999. Please use also alternative ways of sending me your DX information e.g. via e-mail, packet radio or fax. I wish you a Merry Christmas and much success with DXing in 1999.
