So what has been happening in recent weeks since you made your OQRS request for VK9MT?
What is the status of the QSL?
While the VK9MT team were working their way back home from the Pacific, work here at the QSL management Bureau has been going well, but just WHAT have I been doing?
Firstly there were many emails, logging enuiries, questions that had to be answered, this was done, the busted calls were corrected, the log was uploaded to LoTW with permission from the VK9MT team.
OQRS requests came in fast and so far all Direct and Bureau OQRS requests have been “Processed”
What does “processed” mean? and why haven’t I got the QSL yet?
This is what many of you are asking, “Processed” means that your OQRS request has been processed into the log for direct or bureau QSL. It cannot be posted yet because the QSL cards have yet to be printed.
OQRS is NOT Ebay! Just because you pay by PayPal, it does not mean you get the QSL in 10 days! The QSL process works exactly the same as if the QSL was posted to me.
All direct letters have also been processed through the logs and all envelopes are now in country order in seven mail trays in my office.
Sponsoring DX organisations often request QSL cards for their members which I prepare and package up and post to the DX society HQ. In this case files from DDXG, DX Italia, GDXF, MDXC and Swiss DXF have all been received and processed through the log.
If you were a $50+ donor, I have processed your QSOs to QSL direct, envelopes have also been prepared and placed in the mail trays. These QSLs are being sent out free as a token of our appreciation of your support.
Please use Club Log and check your QSOs are correct. If you think you have a busted, please email me.
Dave, K3EL was the team photographer and arrived home in mid April and started to sift through the images of the DXpedition to provide me with the photographs needed to design the QSL card. The photographs, the text, the logos are now all in the hands of our QSL card designer Max, ON5UR and soon we will be able to proof the QSL design before it goes to the print room.
That is where we are today, all on schedule and still working hard to get you the ATNO in your QSL collection.
QSL posting is scheduled for June 2nd 2014.
