M0OXO On-Line Qsl Request System (OQRS) goes ‘live’…..


I am pleased to announce that the new OQRS (Online QSL Request System) has gone ‘live’ today (18th Sept. 2011).

This should simplify things a lot and make requesting bureau and direct cards very easy for anyone to use. You,(as the user) will be able to go into the system after the request and you will see the status of not only the current request, but all the cards you have previously requested since the service began.

If you decide that you want the card Direct, then the facility allows you to request the card, pay for it in a variety of ways (via Paypal) and then you send your card via the bureau as normal. The requested Direct card will be with you in a very short and timely manner. Bureau requests are of course at no cost but the card will reach you in half of the time the bureau usually takes.

As mentioned above, there is of course a small charge for the Direct card which has to be made due to cost of postage, envelope and media etc but this is kept to a very minimum to make it easier on you. I can accommodate up to 20 qso’s on one card but to do this it would completely obliterate all of the necessary information on the card you require for your awards etc etc. I would suggest that 8 qso’s on a card is enough and then the card design, image and information is still legible but that’s a matter for you????

Please take a look at the system and see how it works but PLEASE, if you have already sent a card via the bureau then please do not send another request, email me to discuss the options.

Charles M0OXO

I was born in the 1960’s and have lived all my life in the Coal Mining Town of Barnsley in South Yorkshire, Northern England. My parents were all from this area of Yorkshire and my father worked in the main Industry of the local Collieries as a face worker. I have been married to my wife Debbie for 35+ years and we have two children and two grandchildren.

I have been licensed for around 20 years after my interest was re-kindled when I retired from my role as a Police Officer within South Yorkshire Police Force. The latter few years were spent as Radio Operator in the Force Operations Control Room at Sheffield, before my career ended.

IOTA chasing is (and always has been) my real passion, as climbing the ladder to reach Honour Roll status was always my main aim. The 1000 Islands Trophy is still out of reach but I am heading in the right direction. I am currently a Board Member of IOTA Ltd and IREF.

In my free time I am a keen Photographer of Wildlife, Aviation, (anything really) but the QSL Manager role is my main passion within Ham Radio.
