Satellite QSO’s

If you have had a Satellite QSO and require this confirming by QSL Card, you are advised to email and inform me BEFORE making the OQRS request otherwise your card MAY contain the incorrect information.
This is because M0OXO OQRS does NOT cater for Sat Frequencies and was primarily written for HF only. If requested on OQRS the Band will show as 13m and not 13cm. To confirm any Satellite QSO, the label has to be produced from different Software. This is fine, I was happy to do that and/or correct the error with a new card when notified either by email or other social media source and at no further cost to the customer.
However, I no longer wish to deal with certain people who send rude, abusive and threatening emails regarding Satellite QSO’s. I thought I was helping the SAT Community by confirming their QSO’s (often as a new DXCC entity) but clearly this is not the case and several of them have now spoilt it for the others.
For this reason and from January 1st 2021, I will no longer confirm any new Satellite QSO’s  (unless the owner of the log specifically and personally asks me to do so).

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.
