We got our first boxes with QSL cards from the printer. Thanks to the QSL-Shop in Berlin for their fast and professional service and the excellent quality of the QSL cards! We already started to send the first QSL cards. DX clubs with a special QSL service for their members (GDXF, SDXF and DDXG) were the first who got them. Followed by another 1000 letters last week we continue working on the over 4000 direct request which came through OQRS.
On the day we received the QSL cards from the printer we uploaded ALL QSOs to LOTW. Please check your LOTW account before asking us when we will upload LOTW! Nevertheless it can happen due to wrong dates/times that this or that QSO does not show up in LOTW. You may contact us and we can have a look at it.
Lost QSO data
One word about lost QSO data (of course not on our side): We get emails on a regular basis every two days from hams asking us to give them QSO data because they have lost their QSO data by throwing away a piece of paper or having a computer crash just after the DXpedition. We are not responsible for your QSO data! Please take care that you don’t loose them! We will not tell you the QSO data. If you loose them it’s not our fault, sorry!
Sea freight back home
In February we received our 2.5 tons of material back from New Zealand after a 2 month journey. Last weekend half of the team met at the clubstation of DR1A where all equipment was unpacked, cleaned and properly stowed away to be ready for the next trip. Thanks to the team for the hard work for two full days. And special thanks to Heike and Markus for the excellent diner on Saturday evening!
