Great to see VK0EK DXpedition to Heard Island feature on the front cover of the October 2016 edition of QST magazine.
As QSL manager I was very proud to work with this team. The challenges of QSL duties on a major DXpedition are numerous, probably the most time consuming are researching busted call inquiries and monitoring the logs for any problems. Luckily i was able to work with some top IT guys on this project and it all went remarkably well.
You can of course still claim your VK0EK QSL card on our OQRS.

After just eight days since we sent the 5H1XX QSL design to the print room I am happy to confirm that 129 letters have been posted this morning. Many thanks to the fast work at ON5UR QSL Print Service.
279 Bureau cards have also been processed and ready for the next dispatch.
Of course you can still request your Direct or Bureau card on our OQRS service
Responsible Bureau QSL'ing
Please do not send us any QSL's or replies through the bureau this is not required. It will however add extra work and costs. Please use OQRS only. Thank you

As promised, once we received the laptops back from Heard Island, we would reconcile all laptops with the master N1MM+ log, and more than 100 QSO’s have been recovered. We hope you were the lucky one – and if you have any questions – please contact our QSL Manager, Tim, M0URX: https://vk0ek.org/qsl/
We would like to thank Pete, W6OP, and Mike, KJ4Z for their most excellent efforts finding and recovering these QSO’s. The majority were recovered from a failed laptop that did not sync with the N1MM+ Master log.
Recovered QSOs have been uploaded to OQRS http://www.m0urx.com/oqrs/logsearch.php
And they have also been uploaded to LoTW as well.

For the prefix hunters we will also upload the log to LoTW.

The Perseverance DX Group (PDXG) and the United Radio QSL Management Bureau, owned and operated by Tim Beaumont M0URX, have entered into an exclusive relationship for United Radio and its partner M0OXO Online QSL Request Service operated by Charles Wilmott M0OXO to use PDXG’s QSL Management System. Current, future and legacy call signs supported by these firms are included in the agreement.
Initially intended for our own use we decided to make the application available to the DX community supported by the United Radio / M0OXO services. This fully integrated cloud based application allows authorized users around the world access to a host of QSL management functions. By dramatically simplifying and automating the process a QSL manager’s workload and time commitment are significantly reduced.
To DXers the application presents the familiar functions of Log Search and OQRS. Busted Call and Not in Log inquires are handled by an integrated (form) process that greatly reduces the need for e-mails. The application integrates PayPal donor information with logged QSOs to recognize those who supported the DX-pedition for expedited confirmation handling. Address and QSL card label management functions are seamlessly integrated for ease of use.
Under development for 2 years, the application was introduced during the TX3X Chesterfield Islands DX-pedition. Many enhancements were added since TX3X.
To date, Tim has loaded the logs for 140 DX stations, over 2 million QSOs, Charles will soon begin uploading 150 logs. User feedback has been very positive.
Questions may be directed to Pista HA5AO or Gene K5GS at their QRZ.com address.
