Here are the current rules for using the QSL BUREAU.
OUTGOING CARDS: All outgoing cards must have a MARL sticker attached. Currently the cost of these stamps is €0.10 for all destinations. Stamps are sold by the QSL Bureau manager (or a committee member), during club opening hours. Users are responsible for placing their stamped cards into the correct pigeon hole for delivery to any approved IARU bureau.
INCOMING CARDS: Each user of the bureau has a pigeon hole allocated for his incoming cards. Users are responsible for collecting the cards addressed to them from their own pigeon hole.
Membership status: Should a non-member of M.A.R.L. wish to use the services of the QSL bureau, he must contact the M.A.R.L. committee, and will be required to pay the equivalent of the membership fee. If a member resigns (or is deemed to have resigned) from M.A.R.L., any cards received for him will be considered as undeliverable, from the date of his resignation.
Undeliverable cards: Undeliverable cards are archived by the bureau for a reasonable length of time. Against a charge equivalent to the membership fee, bureau users may request access to the repository of previously undeliverable cards, to search for any cards that may be for them.
