Away until 30th September

After 12 months of planning, team members of 4W6A are beginning their journeys today. One of those journeys is being taken be me, so as from today the United Radio QSL Bureau will be closed until my return on 30th September. Of course you can still request your QSL cards by all routes as normal. My post will be collected from the PO Box daily. Your OQRS requests will be stored electronically on the server and the Bureau cards are being held back at the RSGB until i return home. If you have any questions, please be patient! I will reply as and when i can while I am away.

I have scheduled the posting of the OJ0UR Market Reef QSL cards for the week after my return home. So please keep your QSL requests coming!

I continue to find ways to improve your experience of the QSL exchange, many of you tell me frequently how you find my QSL services, hopefully with the introduction of the new OQRS (Online QSL Request System) by Bernd DF3CB your experience of the website should be enhanced. If there is any aspect of the United Radio QSL Bureau that you think could be enhanced please let me know, I welcome your ideas.

So what route will I be taking to get to Timor-Leste? After a two hour coach trip to London, Heathrow Airport, there is a seventeen hour flight to Darwin, NT, Australia Via Singapore. I will be traveling with Ant, MW0JZE. In Darwin we will meet up with VK8NSB, Stuie, (Team leader) VK8DX, Oliver & VK2IA Bernd, The following day we fly to Dili, Timor-Leste where we have some work to do gathering supplies, generators need to be picked up and checked, fuel, food, water all needs to be bought and then the day after on Friday 16th September the rest of the team arrive, 9M6XRO, John and 9M6DXX, Steve, fly in from their pre DXpedition warm up in Bali, Indonesia.
