The TX5K QSLs for the March Clipperton Island DXpedition should start to flow out sometime around the end of June. Although it has only been about 2 1/2 months since the DXpedition ended, there has been some “interest” in the status of the QSL process.
We are a little behind due to a combination of reasons beginning with delays getting the design started due to the XE1L situation, and normal post-DXpedition craziness. Then there were some simple unfortunate timing issues with each of us involved in the process. However, I am happy to report that the card design is almost done, and once proofed will be sent to our printer (WZ8P) who is ready to go. Once printed, the cards will be divided between the two primary QSL Managers and processed by “teams” at both locations. OQRS requests by Dean N7XG (in Oregon) and direct mail requests by N2OO (in New Jersey). Since Club Log and our new processing software automatically matches log data, Dean’s job is to simply print, peel and stick labels, add address labels and stuff envelopes. His team has already prepped for the process. Bob N2OO’s team consists of 4 experienced “processors
who must manually process each mailed request. We have already “pre- processed” about 1/2 of the mail received and continue to work on it daily. So, we appreciate your patience while we gear up for the big QSL push on both coasts! We just wanted everyone to know that we are “actively” working on the TX5K QSLs. Please save your “inquiries” until after you hear that we are “current” on the processing. THANKS! N2OO
