1.8kg of outgoing Qsl Cards were shipped Direct mail to the JARL Bureau last Friday.
I also have 2 x 1.8kg packages to send to the RSGB Bureau this week. I still have approx. 400 cards to process which are the final cards from the latest package of the ”GR” (Royal Wedding) received 10 days ago.
All in all and including the latest drop from the ”via M0OXO” sub-manager (thanks Wayne!), I have processed just under 3,500 cards, a little less than originally estimated.
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.
