IRC International Reply Coupon
IRC or International Reply Coupon was a mandatory item for DXers for many years. When a DXer wishes to receive verification from the station, he/she needed to enclose some number of IRCs to cover the reply postages.Between 1970s and now, there were some design changes of the IRC. And in each country the price of the IRC was increased. For example, in Japan, in early 1970's the price of the IRC was 90 Yen. Currently it is priced as 150 Yen. Besides the price of IRC, bigger change has come. Some countries stopped selling IRCs recently. Because of e-mail communication and/or utilization of e-money, the role of IRC has come to the end in the world. Please see and enjoy IRCs which were issued in different countries/years.
