    I have to buy US$ to satisfy the requirements of some hams to include return postage for QSL’s. For me to do that I have to go to a bank 40k each way. Not only do I have to satisfy the bank as to why I need US$ But then I have to buy at exchange rates (fair enough) but also have to pay an admin fee of so much per US$10 or part thereof last time was AU$6 admin fee for US$8. Total cost was $17. Works out expensive

    I went to our main post office to buy IRC's. "Huh?" the branch supervisor said. "Well, do you have stamps by denomination, one dollar and so on?" "No they don't make those anymore, only forever." [Dumber than a rock supervisor.] I went to the smaller satellite branch. "Do you still have denominational stamps?" I had bought them there many times in the past. The clerk replied, "Sure, how many of what amount?" So refreshing to have someone who KNOWS THEIR JOB.

    Now I'll go back and ask about IRCs.

    His thesis works well. I had no problem when presenting the items just like the author wrote.

    "Her", actually. Sarah is my daughter. I merely posted her experience using my existing QRZ account...

    If you are still interested, I have 10 expired, sequential serial numbered, with hologram in pristine (as in never taken out of the cellophane like envelope when purchased at the PO) condition.

    I have had no problem redeeming IRC's at the local post office. Here is how to assist your local postal clerk to redeem your IRC's for overseas postage:

    On the clerk's touchscreen proceed as follows:

    Sales => More => Exchanges => Foreign IRC

    Of course, that only works at the RSS (automated, for lack of a better term) offices. Manual offices should be able to just exchange them, make the correct entries in their e1412 at the end of the day, and then submit the IRC's when directed.
