We all love to receive QSL cards and this week SV2YC, Dimitri sent me a photo which made me smile. Dimitri requested a pack of QSL cards from the stations that I am QSL manager for a few days ago.
Thank you Dimitri for the photograph.

I quite frequently get emails asking me "Why hasn't my QSL package arrived?" Well you can be sure that we take your QSL requests very seriously indeed!
Sometimes delays in mail transportation can be the result of many International Incidents and may not always be obvious or specific to your region but may be the cause of a delay in the routing of your International Mail.
Incidents such as flooding, earthquake, fire, strike, flight delays, damage to aircraft ILS, war and government restrictions. I have seen all the above incidents causing delays in my time as QSL manager and one way to see if there is an event that could be the cause of your delay look on the "International Incidents Update" page at Royal Mail which gives quite a comprehensive list to incidents around the globe.

Each year United Radio QSL Bureau dispatches bureau cards to all World IARU Bureaus every three months, the recent dispatch this week was our third one in 2014 so it is time to give you our report for the year.
In 2014 I have once again worked with Charles, M0OXO in our bureau posting, this helps us both keep down our outgoing expenses. 31,260 bureau QSL cards have been dispatched this year. All our packages are sent using online business account with Royal Mail, we use several products on the account to best suit the size and weight of the item. All of the packages are sent by Business Mail Priority so that we can be sure that they reach their destination as fast as possible and at a cost that is the most competitve in the industry.
It is very important to remember that bureau cards are NOT free, it actually costs us a considerable amount of money every year which has to be financed by the work that we do here, that is why direct cards cost $2, that is why i do not accept stamps.
The RSGB are in the process of doing a "Bureau Review" in which we have been asked to pay more for the incoming bureau service that we have from the RSGB Bureau. At this stage we are still waiting to hear from the RSGB as to how much this is going to cost. So this is a good time to remind you that for ALL DXpeditions you should NOT send incoming bureau cards to us as they are not required, they cost us money to receive them. You must always use OQRS to request your DXpediton IOTA & DXCC bureau cards. This will save us a considerable amount of money and time, and you will get your bureau cards very quickly.
Thank you to all the bureau staff at the IARU bureaus, we value your work very much. There are some that are giving outstanding service, notably the Venezuealan bureau where members informed us that cards had arrived in just 24 days after we had posted them. Thank you.
Using OQRS for direct QSL cards is the fastest and best way to request your QSL cards and this will help us fund our outgoing bureau for the future. Any donations are most welcome of course... Thank you.
