Reporting NIL (Not In Log) queries

Reporting QSO’s that are not in the log is very easy using the NIL Form on my Bespoke OQRS.

Simply enter the Bespoke OQRS Logsearch page and select the Log that you wish to search. You will usually get a response from your search which will show a table showing Green coloured ticks. These green Ticks will show the Band Slots you have in this available log.

If you are unlucky and have QSO’s missing (no Green Ticks in the appropriate Band/Mode slots) or a total NIL sheet with no Band Slots showing, then you will be presented with this image.


Below the box you will see a button labelled ‘Not In Log?’. All you need to do is to click there and then you will get the following screen.

Its very easy to complete and should take no longer than a few minutes. Simply hit the SEND button once complete and it will be send to my work queue awaiting processing. Once you have sent it, you will receive a auto-generated reply saying the request has been received by the QSL Manager.

This NIL form is the most efficient way to get your enquiry dealt with. In most cases you are guaranteed a reply at the latest, 24 hours after submission. Email requests and Social media requests are not dealt with as I have no record of the enquiry once dealt with. OQRS keeps all enquiries which is another great tool in my system and allows back tracking of any enquiry should it be needed.

Please use the NIL Form at every opportunity. It was designed specifically for you to streamline the process of reporting Busted and/or Missing Calls.

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.
