G3TXF's QSL'ing .... use only OQRS, please!
1. Online QSL Request Service : OQRS

The fastest, easiest and cheapest way to receive a Direct QSL is to use the excellent OQRS on Club Log. Club Log's OQRS can also be used for requesting a Bureau card, without the need to send your QSL through the Bureau first.

Below are the
Club Log OQRS links for many callsigns and DX-peditions. Go to the Club Log page, put in your own callsign and then press "Request QSL". You can then choose to receive your QSLs either via the Bureau or Direct.

To make it easier to find a call, major DX operations during the past three years are shown in the upper table.

All operations are shown in the lower table.

Please do not send me your own card - it's not needed - thanks!

2. Direct QSLs

If you must send a Direct QSL through the post (rather than use the more efficient OQRS - see above!), please enclose IRC's and/or $'s for the return Postage.

However, if you are unable to send even one IRC, then please do send at least a Self-Addressed Envelope (SAE) or, as an absolute minimum, an address label. No QSL Manager enjoys writing addresses on envelopes.

3. Bureau QSLs

Cards received through the Bureau will always be answered. However Bureau QSLs can be slow.... very slow. Please use the OQRS (see above) to request your Bureau card. Please do not send me your card through the Bureau. Thanks!

It is so much better to use OQRS to request a Bureau QSL. OQRS avoids having to wait until your card is received before a reply is sent.

Even if a diligent QSL Manager replies to cards received from the Bureau or to OQRS requests within a few days, the full round-trip through the Bureau can still take two years or more. However OQRS already halves this time delay.

The 'peak' in QSLs arriving from the Bureau is usually about 10 to 13 months after the end of the DX-Trip.

For over twelve years or more, G3TXF has been sending all out-going Bureau QSLs directly by airmail to the overseas Bureaux. This saves several months in the transit time for Bureau QSLs.

4. E-mail requested Bureau cards

By E-mailing "QSL at G3TXF dot com" your request for a Bureau card, you will receive your Bureau QSL quicker than by just sending me one through the Bureau.

However it is much easier now if you request your Bureau QSL using OQRS (see above!).

Your Bureau QSL will be on its way to you (via the Bureau) soon after I have received your OQRS request. Typically within less than a month. There is then only the time delay for the one-way delivery to you via the Bureau.

There is no need to send me your card through the Bureau. Please use OQRS and then await your Bureau card!

5. LoTW

In mid-2005 G3TXF up-loaded 300,000+ QSOs to LoTW. This included all DX-Trips (and G3TXF home QSOs) since 1990. The logs for all subsequent operations are up-loaded to LoTW immediately after the trip (if not during the operation itself).

Logs for all pre-1990 operations (with just a couple of small exceptions) have also been up-loaded to LoTW, including old logs right back to GD3TXF and 3V8NC in 1969. It was a major task to have these old logs typed up before they could be entered into LoTW.

G3TXF's own home-call logs since the beginning on 5 February 1965 are now also all up-loaded to LoTW.

LoTW is an excellent system, please use it!

6. E-QSLs

Sorry, but G3TXF does not respond to requests for E-QSLs. He is too busy enjoying dealing with the real thing!
