5H1XX QSL Preview

Thank you to Max ON5UR for the QSL design of the new 5H1XX, Tanzania, Zanzibar Island, AF-032 QSL card. The design will be in the print room in the morning and cards are expected here in about two weeks from now.

QSL Via M0URX OQRS open.


M0URX New OQRS goes Live

PDXGThe 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.
