I have just added a new page to my website that deals with OQRS, how you use it and the other service that it offers. You can find the page by navigating to ”How to QSL” and using the drop down menu select ”OQRS Hints & Tips” (or use the link below).
The Page gives advice for the general User but also Tools for the Dxpedition Stations where we can offer Real Time Log Search, Band Activity Module and OQRS Support (with Busted/Missing Call & Express LOTW integration) and much more. Of course it also strongly supports the QSL manager workload automating the most time consuming QSL’ing processes.
You can find the article by navigating to the page on the link below. I hope you find this article useful. If you have any questions please drop me an email.
OQRS Hints & Tips https://www.m0oxo.com/direct-a-bureau-instructions/oqrs-hints-tips/
Today was the last mailing day before Christmas with the next one planned sometime between Christmas and the New Year.
All outstanding Dxpedition cards have been ordered and delivery awaited. In the meantime please let me wish you all a very Merry Christmas and thanks for your support during 2019.
Please remember M0OXO QSL Service is a self funded service. If you are happy with the service then please consider a donation for the continued upkeep of the Website, the OQRS Platform and Development and the Printing of Cards, Envelopes and other media. Thank you!
After a series of emails this week and many more in months gone by, I have to ask myself how educated we are and how would we expect our behaviour to be perceived by others? Many emails are ‘open’ emails and when I say ‘open’, I mean they have no greeting, no ‘Hello’, no ‘please’ and no ‘thank you’.
After eleven years using Joomla CMS for publishing my web content (which has been an integral part of my QSL Management System), it became apparent that it was time to upgrade from the Joomla platform and to progress with innovation.
The problem was, that Joomla was becoming increasingly difficult and more costly to upgrade to newer versions. I had to look around for newer Platforms which would still give me a good service but without a huge hike in costs. Some features of the site would clearly have to be redesigned or rebuilt and again, time and money are always an issue in these situations especially when the service is self-funded. Also I had the added problem that the Online QSL Request System (OQRS) is written using the latest PHP versions with which the old Joomla version cannot work. So after discussing this with my IT guys, it was clear that the most cost effective way to go forward was to migrate the site to WordPress.
Several new pages have been added and whilst I am still working on Text, Fonts and other issues on some pages, I hope you will find the site easy to navigate and find the information you require quite easily.
Many thanks to James at BarclayJames for the time and work he has put in to migrate the site, and for his advice and support which has been vital to the continued work here at M0OXO QSL Service.
So welcome to my new web page!

”Where do we go next…? The question that was haunted by different heads. Finally it’s time, we’re going to Bhutan.
It was quite exciting days… behind the scenes, there was a lot of work in Japan and Bhutan to get all the official documents in order. Almost daily we received messages from ms ishidade the secretary of Zorro jh1ajt. No news, still no news, something hope visa will be soon etc etc… finally yesterday came the redeeming news, all visas and documents were ok. Pfff what a nice feeling, only five days before our departure.

This website has now had the new Pages added for the UK County Plaques (by the Most Wanted DX Plaques Team). There are 5 Plaques available in total;

You can navigate to the pages by hovering your mouse over the MW DX Plaques header on the title bar above this entry. Information on the required contacts is listed on a separate page for each of the Awards.
We will have logging software that will cater for these Award Programme coming soon but at the time I write this, the programme is not quite ready to roll out so back to the Paper and pen for now!
Good luck with the hunting, drop me a line should you need any assistance.
