OQRS really is the quickest way to receive your Bureau cards from M0URX. On May 21st 2014, DF7EF made an OQRS request for many Bureau cards, these were duly processed and carefully put into the DARC Bureau box. The box was then sent to DARC on June 2nd. This week Uli reports:
“I just got my monthly QSL parcel from the DARC-QSL-bureau and I was amazed how many cards were actually coming from your hands. And the greatest of all: I made my way through your OQRS on the 21. May 2014. That’s roughly 2 months. What an unbelievable quick service. My heartful thanks to your great work to the ham community. DF7EF Uli”
It is not just the DARC Bureau either! RX3AU from Russia writes: … “Tnx for QSL from GS0NWM, MS0INT (11 QSO), CY9M, VK9MT & others.”
The question that I have to ask is WHY does the RSGB have one of the SLOWEST Bureaus in the World? In tests here it is taking one to two years to get QSL cards to RSGB members, and that is sending from here as an RSGB member!
Bureau does NOT mean slow! Just be clever and use OQRS for your Bureau cards!
Two more new designs have been added to the United Radio QSL collection, MW/VK8NSB & 5B4AGN.

In this magazine from the Dutch Kingdom Amateur Radio Society you will read “in short, we are a foundation that will serve the interests of all Dutch radio amateurs in the broadest
sense of the word, and thereby also want to pay attention to interest young people in technique. Indeed, the amateur radio hobby contains a plurality of technical aspects where young people can take part in and benefit of in their future careers.
And do not forget, we’re going to organize the Dutch Kingdom Contest (DKC) ! Every year on the first weekend of June, further on in in this issue more about this”
Thank you to Peter PJ4NX for the information.
