SMOM - Sovereign Military Order of
Malta - is a fully independent entity with an ancient tradition and
glorious history. Founded before the conquest of Jerusalem in 1099 by
the crusaders, recognized in 1113 by Pope Pascal II, from 1310 to
1522 SMOM held the sovereignity of the island of Rhodes, and from
1530 to 1798 of the island of Malta. Then, after temporary Sees, the
Order finally established itself in 1834 in Rome, where it holds
several extraterritorial areas.Its members are known as the "Knights
of Malta". Under the provisions of International Law, the Order
mantains diplomatic relations with 64 countries in the world as well
as with many international organizations.His most Eminent Highness
the Prince and Grand Master of the Order rules over a world-wide
organization dedicated solely, as its ancient tradition dictates, to
providing assistance in the hospitaller, charitable and social
fields. Regarding 1A0KM, which is located in the extraterritorial
zone of "Villa Magistrale all'Aventino" in Rome, Italy, special
thanks are due to the Grand Magistry for its assistance.

- QSL for activities between 1994 and 2000 can be requested
ONLY DIRECT with SAE or SASE and they CAN'T BE SENT together with
QSL-card about 2007. These cards will NOT be
answered via the bureau in every case.
- Only for qso maded after the 1st January 2004, if you are not
in a hurry to receive your QSL via direct, you could send QSL via
direct without $ or IRC; in this way you will receive your QSL via
bureau. At the same way, will be treated every QSL card sent via
direct without self-addressed envelope and/or IRC or 2 US$ (due the low
value one dollar it's no longer sufficient to send a letter also in
- To make the confirming task easier, I would very much
appreciate if you will not ask for QSLs about QSO of different years
in the same letter.
Thanks to all for your patience!
