“Hit the 100k QSO mark from Kenya a few days ago (since Nov 2019). QSO #100,000 was LY3EC on 15 Nov 2020. 15M SSB. 73 de 5Z4VJ (ex 5Z4/G3AB)
Many thanks to Tim @m0urx for all his hard work handling the QSL requests.”
With hundreds of DX logs and millions of QSOs in the database, managing inquiries are all handled directly through The Bespoke OQRS. Please do not send emails, or screenshots or attachments of any kind, i do not accept them. Instead search the log for your call sign and there you will see a “NOT IN LOG?” button. If you cannot find your QSO in the log fill in the form as required; this will send your inquiry to my work queue for investigation. I can open up a selection of the database to search for errors, this is much quicker. I will then send you an update directly from OQRS whatever the answer is.
When searching for your QSO in the log search please also check the Last QSO in the log: in red above the log search:
“Last QSO in the log: 15 Nov 2020 23:57 UTC” If your QSO is after the Last QSO then you must WAIT, yes WAIT for the log update.
DO NOT USE “NOT IN LOG?” button for QSOs that are AFTER Last QSO in log. WAIT.
It seems that so many people are not capable of reading!!!
It is also very important that you “BACK-UP your logs!” To protect the integrity of logs under our care, we will not provide any QSO data.
All your questions are answered on this website. Please use it and only email if you are not able to find the answer to your question.

PJ4TEN is a special event station active during October 2020 to commemorate the 10th anniversary of “10/10/10” – October 10th, 2010. On that date the former country of the Netherlands Antilles was dissolved and Bonaire became a ‘special municipality’ of the Netherlands. As a result, Bonaire became a new DXCC entity on that date.
To mark the 10th anniversary, Bonaire’s radio amateurs are organising a month-long operating event. A PDF award will be available to those who achieve 10 points by making contacts with PJ4 stations during October.
1. A total of 10 points are required.
2. A contact with PJ4TEN is worth 2 points.
3. A contact with any other PJ4 station is worth 1 point.
4. Exception: on the exact anniversary, between 0000UTC and 2359UTC on Saturday October 10th, all PJ4 stations count 2 points.
5. All stations may be worked more than once on different bands and / or modes for additional points. Example: QSOs with PJ4TEN on 14MHz SSB and 7MHz FT8, and with PJ4NX on 14MHz CW and 7MHz FT8, would count a total of 6 points (2+2+1+1). However, if all those QSOs took place on 10/10/20 a total of 8 points would be scored (2+2+2+2).
6. Only contacts made between 0000UTC on October 1st and 2359UTC on October 31st count towards the Bonaire 10/10/10 Award.
7. There is no fee and no QSLs are required.
8. To apply: send a list of contacts made, stating the date, time (UTC), band and mode to: email@example.com
9. The award is also available to SWLs on a ‘heard’ basis. For each contact logged, please list at least two stations with which the PJ4 station was in contact.
A big thank you to the IARU Bureaus handing our outgoing Bureau cards. Already just 3 weeks after the mailing we have had the following reported by email being delivered. Please email me if you can add your bureau to the list of fast hard working working bureaus?
