In an effort to reduce spam and the spread of viruses, we are now providing this form for you to contact a person that has placed an ad on QTH.COM. After submitting this form, an e-mail will be generated and sent to BOTH you and the person that placed the ad. The e-mail will contain a copy of the ad, plus your e-mail information and your comments.
NOTE -- BEFORE YOU RESPOND:
|Phone Number:||USE EMAIL|
|Heading:||SHIPPING WITH MEDIA MAIL|
|Ad Message:||I know many of us mail books and magazines, Callbooks and old catalogs using USPS MEDIA MAIL (also often referred to as Book Rate). I was made aware by my local Post Office clerk that sending something that contains advertising, even OLD ADS, can not be mailed using Media Mail.
USPS prohibits mailing items by Media Mail (printed matter) that contains any advertising, even if the ads are really old ads (such as in old QSTs and ARRL Handbooks). You can try to mail items with ads using Media Mail, but if they catch it (and the PO has the right to open Media Mail packages/envelopes to check the contents), you may get a bill for the difference in postage between Media Mail and the lowest price other mail service, such as Retail Ground or Priority Mail.
See this USPS link on Media Mail, Section 4.1.a.
