Thank you to the Bulgarian QSL Bureau for informing us that the EP6T bureau cards are arriving in Bulgaria. LZ2JE Vesko shows us in the photo of the bureau cards arriving at the destination.
Thank you for the fast service. It is most appreciated.
QSL Bureau CAN be slow, but in our experience the hard work and dedication of its staff as shown here can make the service fast and a cost effective way to distribute QSL cards.
Thank you Vesko!
Have YOU received the EP6T Bureau card? Please let me know.

I am getting a lot of QSL requests from German Club Station operators for QSL cards under their own personal call sign. Sorry but these will be returned NOT IN LOG!
If you are the operator of the Club Station and you want to claim the QSL for your personal call sign, then you MUST also be logged by the DX with your HOME CALL. The Club Station call sign is not valid for your personal call.

The work continues since the posting of the EP6T QSL cards last Tuesday. The DXpedition E30FB to Eritrea closed with 62,500 QSO's and instantly the OQRS was busy with all your requests, already over 2,200 requests have been processed, envelopes printed and placed in trays in country order. Just to give you an idea how many are now using OQRS i have only received 276 direct letters so far for E30FB. Also over 1,000 bureau requests processed.
Other incoming requests have filled a box with 197 outgoing letters that will be posted on Monday, and a new supply of 14 boxes of envelopes ready for your QSL request.
I am waiting for the first bureau cards to land since we posted them on Tuesday! WHICH Bureau is the worlds FASTEST? If you get your bureau cards in the next week or two send me a photo of you with the QSL card for the blog!

I have just spotted a commercial on You Tube from a company called MTN Group. It features a boy that wants to discover and uses Amateur Radio to talk to the Space Station. Inadvertently it is probably the best ever commercial for Amateur Radio I have ever seen (It isn't supposed to be advertising ham radio haha)
The moral of the story is Life is too short for QRP.

ALL Bureau cards requested before the 8th March have now been sent to all World Bureaus on our mailing today.
I would like to thank Charles M0OXO, who helped me process the letters over the last few days. It has taken over 100 man hours since the arrival of the cards from the printer last week to label cards, fill the envelopes & package the directs and bureau.

I have received quite a lot of emails and calls this week about the schedule for EP6T QSL'ing! In the hope that we can keep the emails down to a minimum this week here is the time schedule for the next 10 days or so.
Friday 6th March - EP6T QSL cards were picked up from Maxi-Print in Belgium by our courier.
Tuesday 10th March - EP6T QSL cards expected to arrive at United Radio QSL Bureau.
Courier delivered parcels.
Bureau labels will be prepared and placed on QSL cards and sorted to bureau bins.
2,000 Bureau cards prepared today.
Wednesday 11, Thursday 12th and Friday 13th - Direct QSL labels will be prepared and placed on QSL cards.
Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th - Direct QSL Letters will be processed ready for a mailing. G1VDP Chris & M0OXO Charles will be working with me over the weekend to ensure the job is completed.
Monday 16th March - M0OXO and M0URX will package up all Bureau boxes to World Bureaus.
Tuesday 17th March - All Direct and Bureau cards will be posted.
I then have two weeks off work to dedicate to the E30FB team in processing the direct and bureau requests and of course the busted call emails.
Just to note that I am currently on "Bureau Lock down!" Which means that as of today I will not be processing any more bureau requests until the schedule above is completed. ALL OQRS bureau requests processed on 08/03/2015 or before will be sent out on this Bureau posting.

After having a great solo DXpedition to Pohnpei in 2012, I thought it would be appropriate to return to Micronesia, this time to Kosrae, OC-59, especially since I now had a 500 watt amplifier light enough to carry with me. I knew V6 was in the Top 100, so why not? Micronesia is just north of the Equator, and the 8000 mile haul to North America was doable. Although ClubLog propagation charts do not show any 160 activity to NA out of the 350 or so logs submitted, I figured that it was because no one had attempted that path yet. A challenge, true,

We are constant aware of the unbalanced amount of "EU-NA-VK-AS" QSO's. We do our best do bend this fact but 10 days is perhaps to less time to satisfy everybody. We are trying to call for certain area's, but are not always have the control on the hard to find "HAM spirit". Jammers, calling with fake calls and disrespecting the operators, sending disgraceful emails and calling us names is sometimes to much for us. PLEASE A LITTLE MORE RESPECT is needed.
Last night was the first day to enjoy RX with no local QRM. There is a noise level we must concur but this is not local. Many JA's made it through on the low bands, and on 80m some NA stations made it through. Only as far KV4FZ and NP2X was worked on 160m. Even EU was hard to work at sunrise.
We have 4 RX antenna's we can switch but when conditions are bad there's nothing we can do.
Today we had a visit of the Iranian press TV. They made a report and will be transmitted on the air tonight. We seem to be famous people over here, hihi.
We will do a logupdate on a regular base. We can't do any log adjustments at the moment. Our QSL manager will adjust when possible after the operation. Just send a mail with your busted call together with the time, band and mode you worked us.
As QSL manager I am working hard answering emails regarding logging enquiries. I received the LoTW certificate on Tuesday. Thank you to the LoTW support team especially Kathy Allison and Dave Patton. EP6T team gave me permission to upload the logs to LoTW a few hours after the team upload to Club Log, once i am sure that the log is correct.

We have good news! Everything is going as planned, we passed customs in Tehran with ALL our equipment, and are now waiting for our domestic flight to Kish Island! The help of Dr Fard was very much appreciated again and we were very happy to be welcomed by so many people of the local amateur radio society in the middle of the night. The 50 km trip between airports which was arranged by Mohammed (EP3MIR) and his assistant Ali went perfectly. All official departments on Kish island have been notified about our radio expedition. There should be no restrictions. In a few hours after arrival on the island we will start building the antennas, and setting up the stations. Expecting to be on air by midnight January 16th.
