East Pen Island NA-231 (Brand new IOTA)

Travel_107s


Our old friend Cezar VE3LYC is qrv again today this time as VYØV from East Pen Island, Nunavut, Canada. This is a first time IOTA so demand high for the newly allocated IOTA reference of NA-231.

East Pen Island is one of several uninhabited Canadian arctic islands in Nunavut, Canada located within southwestern Hudson Bay. It is part of the Pen Islands, though West Pen Island is actually a spit, rather than an island. East Pen Island is situated off the shore of Ontario, a few kilometers southeast of Manitoba. The closest community is Fort Severn, Ontario.

Cezar says they will only be active for three days so better get in the pile ups now!

TX4T 2010 – Qsl Card update

web-TX4T-QSLer-24-Mar-10

The first batch of TX4T QSL arrived from Ukraine yesterday. It’s a small one (1kg), two larger (15kg each) are still on the road to G3TXF.













Nigel has been able to answer all direct QSLs from DL, EA, F, G, HA, HB, I, OE, OH, OK, OM and S5. Others will have to wait for the other cards to arrive from UX5UO Qsl Print.

14100 QSOs are already confirmed on LotW, that’s a 40% rate !

Up to now, Nigel received direct cards for 4600 QSOs. Thanks all info Nigel et al…..

MCØSHL now Qrv from GFF-015 Pembrokeshire Coast

K800_IMG_5187_129


Chris (G1VDP) is currently active from our ClubHouse in Pembrokeshire. Situated in the beautuful Pembrokeshire National Park (WFF reference GFF-015) and over looking the sea, it’s a stunning place to play radio!

The location is in South West Wales and just down the Coast from the StrumbleHead lighthouse.

Chris will be active as MCØSHL until early next week and will also take part in the WPX Contest this weekend using the Callsign MW9W. Both Callsigns are good for GFF-015.

He is using an FT2K into a G3TXQ 5 band Broadband Hexbeam at 25 feet and will work all HF Bands (plus 40 & 80m) SSB with also RTTY & PSK modes being used outside the Contest.

Logs will be uploaded to the EW4DX LogSearch early next week and any Qsl card requests should go via the Manager for this operation Tim M0URX. Please give Chris your support and if you hear him, give him a quick call!

GMFF website launch

Header


Its good to see that the GMFF Website has now been officially launched. Hosted and managed by Jurij MM0DFV it gives a wealth of information and activity reports about the Scottish side of the WFF (World Flora Fauna) Programme. You will also find a full list of the GMFF areas valid for the WFF programme as well as contact information should you require it. For European (English speaking) Amateurs, you may also find the new Yahoo Group reflector (EUFF News) of use. This offers up to date information about WFF activites and is in the form of English language, a service that has been difficult to maintain over recent months. Well done to Jurij for this excellent service and indeed WFF Management as a whole. (Click logo below to be directed to the GMFF site).

 Do you need a Qsl Manager?

See the sub-categories for the current status of Callsigns that I Manage, and
who do and do not require your card!

NO LONGER MANAGED

 

 

 Do you need a Qsl Manager?

 

Are you an active DX’er, Contester, planning a DX trip, an Island activation or maybe just a high user of Qsl Cards and are in need of a Qsl Manager?

 

Do you wish to contact me for advice on being your Qsl Manager?

If you are thinking of a Qsl Manager then please contact me and discuss your options for a fast, efficient, well presented and most important, a ‘Bespoke’ service.

All my Qsl help is exactly what it means, a non-profit QSL Service for its clients.

My name is Charles M0OXO and the service I offer will help to cut down as what it is seen as the chore of the hobby. This should aid DXpedition Teams, Holiday Stations or IOTA Stations and Rare DXCC. I am a retired Police Officer so the importance of available time for qsl work and integrity within our service is of paramount importance, both which I can offer you for sure.

What can I provide?

1) I can look after all your QSL requirements from Holiday station, IOTA to major expedition status.
2) I handle RSGB Bureau, Direct QSLing, LoTW, OQRS and Direct Via Paypal.
3) I work directly with UX5UO QSL Printing to ensure a quality Qsl Card and at a very competitive cost.
4) For some DX’peditions I may be able to offer free QSL cards if you use my QSL services. You may qualify for sponsorship, you are welcome to email me.

**For efficiency I will work with either the Team Leader or one person nominated by the Team Leader for the Management required. In practice working with multiple persons leads to errors and ambiguities.


What QSL printer do we use?

I work closely with Gennady Treus in the Ukraine. Gennady (UX5UO Qsl print) will design and print the Qsl Card at the cheapest price possible whilst also giving detail to the presentation and quality of the card that he offers.

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.

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.

All QSL design instructions and information must be clearly written in an email with photographic images in high resolution of 300 DPI or better to charles.wilmott@m0oxo.com or direct to Gennady UX5UO at ux5uo@ux5uoqsl.com

Remember! Delays in transfering logs and QSL images for the QSL work will reflect badly on MY reputation! This will not be accepted!

Data transfer:
I use Broadband ADSL internet, so all ADIF files and QSL card images can be transferred easily and quickly by my usual email address.

Charles M0OXO is very proud to be accepted as a member of the QSL Managers Society, and promises to follow the guidlines set down by the Society. Click here for details.

New CDXC site – Launch imminent

cdxc


The latest CDXC ‘Digest’ informs us about the launch of the new CDXC Website.

Michael G7VJR tells us:-
‘In the first few pages of this month’s digest there is a short explanation of how to access the new CDXC web site – this being a major part of the CMIS (membership database) project.

The address, http://www2.cdxc.org.uk is accessible now as a preview, and will be replacing our existing web site on 2 April when it goes live. Please feel free to login and try it out – we’ve got some great new features including an updated news service run by Tim M0URX and Charles M0OXO, and plenty of new features to do with expedition funding, too. If you need to update your email record to get a password (as explained in the digest and on the web site) then Tony G4LDL is on hand to help. His email address is: tony dot bettley at ntlworld.com.


I’ll be introducing the site in more detail on Saturday at Wyboston, which will also be a chance to see behind the scenes in CMIS (if you wish!) and get your account details tweaked should there be any discrepancies in the membership database
