More bureau wasteage

K800 20161112 151659

A large amount of Qsl Cards received via the RSGB Bureau have been sorted ready for processing.

The photo’s show approx 3000 bureau cards that have been sorted into Callsign order ready to be processed through the logs.

The most disturbing thing is that ALL the Qsl Cards you seen in the image to the left have all been received via the Bureau but QRZ.Com clearly states ”Your QSL Cards are NOT required – Please DO NOT send them via the Bureau”.

This cards have taken 8 hours to sort by me alone after already being sorted by the RSGB Bureau Staff. They have to be packaged, mailed and postage paid for before they arrive at my door.

This is simply ‘Indiscriminate QSL’ing’ by YOU, the user.

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.
