Special offer for hams outside of Russia:
Some of our foreign colleagues have a sort of preoccupation about the uncertain work of the Russian Post-Office and don't risk to send green stamps/IRC in envelopes with their applications. If you don't consider possible to send the application for award and its fee by certified letter I'm ready to offer you another way. I have been an award chaser since a lot of time. So, if you are ready to pay for me the necessary fee for any award issued in your country, I would be happy to accept your e-mail request for our award and sent it to you free of charge. In this case just send me an e-mail and we will agree about the matter.
