United Radio QSL Bureau is a non-profit QSL Bureau providing QSL Services for its clients.
My name is Tim Beaumont M0URX. I am pleased to introduce a service to help cut costs in QSL posting especially for DXpedition Teams, Holiday Stations or IOTA Stations and Rare DXCC.
What can I provide?
1) I can look after all your QSL requirements from Holiday station, IOTA to major expedition status.
2) Free use of PO Box.
3) I handle RSGB Bureau, Direct QSLing, LoTW, OQRS and Direct Via Paypal.
4) I work directly with ON5UR QSL Printing to ensure that only the highest quality QSL cards are designed and printed. http://www.on5ur.be
5) For some DX'peditions I can offer free QSL cards if you use my QSL services. Contact me for more information
What makes this QSL Management Bureau such an excellent service?
Firstly I can offer FREE high quality QSL printing for ALL MAJOR DXpedition Teams and also FREE high quality QSL printing to SOME holiday and IOTA stations that receive 300 or more Direct QSL cards using my service where $ or IRC contributions have been enclosed.
What QSL printer do we use?
I work closely with Max Van Rymenant ON5UR in Belgium. Max is our QSL card designer and printer. http://www.on5ur.be Thanks to Max any DX Team that uses the service provided by United Radio QSL Team will receive the highest quality printing at the best costs. This reduces the QSL printing cost further!
How do you know that the QSL card is a design you want?
The QSL card is yours from the start, you provide the images for the QSL card such as DX’pedition or radio shack images and we will do the rest. Emailing you proofs at every stage.
Terms & Conditions: QSL Design - VERY IMPORTANT
1) For all stations that i am QSL manager for, it is the responsibility of the DX station or DX Team to ensure that all photographic images are provided at the earliest opportunity. I suggest a team photographer be chosen and this person be delegated to work with us on the QSL design.
2) Club logos and corporate logos must have permission of the owner to be printed on the QSL card.
Please remember that we will require high resolution logos for print reproduction. Logos copied from a website are of too low quality for printing.
3) Please discuss with your team all information, text, logos, images and reference numbers that you want on the QSL design.
4) ) One free draft will be provided to the team in which the team will proof for errors.
A second proof correction is also free, then any further drafts will be chargeable to the DX Station.
5) Log must be provided as ADIF format immediately at the end of the expedition.
For non DXpedition stations i require an ADIF once a week. Failure to do so prevents me from responding to QSL requests.
6) I will not accept ANY remote operation activities. Transceiver, antennas AND operators must ALL be in the same QTH.
RSGB Bureau Charges for NON members:
From April 2012 the RSGB QSL Bureau introduce charges for NON RSGB members that have incoming QSL cards so there will be a charge to users using the service.
Remember! Delays in transfering logs and QSL images for the QSL work will reflect badly on MY reputation! This will not be accepted!
I use Broadband ADSL internet, so all ADIF files and QSL card images can be transferred easily and quickly by my usual email address.
If your DX activity falls in one of these categories: DXpedition, Holiday Stations, IOTA Stations and Rare DXCC.
Then you may qualify for sponsorship, you are welcome to email me.
QSL cards and what to put on them?
For me, a QSL card is more than just a confirmation of a 2 way radio communication. It can tell someone a lot about you and your station and your interests in the hobby.So what do you put on your QSL card? Think about the design you want, it will be only as good as your imagination allows. How about a photo of you in the radio shack, or at the helm of the newly furbished club station or a photo of you in pursuit of another hobby? Or a photo of that tower and the SteppIR at the top of your garden!
Remember that your QSL card may be used by others to claim awards so you should always remember to put on all relevant information. For IOTA claimants the IOTA number and the Island name MUST be printed on the QSL card. NOT hand written. I may live in land locked Central England but we are IOTA Reference EU-005 Great Britain Mainland and this MUST be on my QSL card to be valid for an award claim. Your IARU Locator number, WAB square, Longitude and Latitude, CQ Zone, ITU Zone, Station Equipment are all as useful and as important as the QSO report panel box, your callsign and name on the QSL card.
The UR QSL Management Bureau is here working for you! The offer of FREE high quality QSL printing for your DX Team is alone valuable sponsorship!
For small holiday stations I will offer a % of high quality printing costs depending on amount of QSL cards received.
