Updated QSL News: The QSL information on QRZ.com for 4B4B has been updated. Scroll down through the many photos to about Page Six, just after the tool box photo and before the Band Plan chart, to find the QSL particulars. 73 de Mark w2or

Wow. Some of you guys need to think a little instead of asking for immediate answers regarding OQRS. Mark did say he would QSL via OQRS. Does that necessarily mean he will upload any logs to Club Log before he goes home? No, it doesn't. This isn't a dxpediton of a dozen people to some super rare location where it's worth uploading logs to help prevent dupes. This is just one guy on an island for a few weeks and he might not want the bother of uploading logs with a satellite phone or other costly method just to keep people like you happy. Have a little patience and wait for him to get home.

QSLing: Various web sites show various QSL routes for Station 4B4B : As of this writing, it is not definitive (to me) as to which address to use for direct QSLs. As an example, QRZ.com shows XE1B, but the XE1B site has no clearly defined address for QSLs. Another site suggests use of OQRS Club Call, but that site has no indication that any logs have been uploaded, or will be uploaded. Another site shows an address at P.O. Box 20-073 in Mecixo City. Still another site shows an address in Mexico City, 01900, DF. Another site shows an address at Lava 173, Jardines del Pedregal, CD MX 01900, Mexico. Another site shows his QSL Manager as EB7DX, but that information is quite dated. Most all of the aforementioned addresses are dated back to 2015 and 2013. I have sent off a few email notes and hope to get a better idea of all this, soon. Good luck and 73, de Mark.

It would help A LOT if you operate split, you'd be able to work faster and work more stations. Thank you

Glad to have 4B4B in the log for an All time new one!! :) How to QSL, there is no address on XE1B or 4B4B QRZ pages, no address given here. Will there be LOTW? Clublog shows 4B4B has not uploaded any QSOs yet. 7 Mach 2018 14:40utc
