New IRC "Model" Introduced
The ARRL Letter reports that the Universal Postal Union has rolled out a new "model" of the International Reply Coupon, or IRC. Known as the Doha model, the new coupons will become available on July 1, 2013 and will be good through December 31, 2017. The current "Nairobi" model IRCs are valid through December 31, 2013. The U.S. Postal Service no longer sells IRCs but post offices in the U.S. must redeem them and they may still be purchased in other countries.
