Taking over QSL Submanager Post for MØPAA-MØZZZ

July 24th, 2007

Here in the UK, the incoming QSL Bureau (something like an amateur radio postal service for cheap delivery of QSL cards) has a clever and efficient model. Cards that arrive at the central RSGB QSL Bureau are sorted by callsign blocks (like G4NAA-NZZ, MØPAA-MØZZZ etc.) and then passed on to the respective submanager.

Submanager work is a voluntary one; submanagers only receive £25 per year from RSGB as a small incentive. The submanager then sorts the cards by callsigns and stores them. Any ham that wants to receive QSL cards via the bureau can do so – whether or not they are a memeber of RSGB – simply by sending self-addressed stamped envelopes (SASE) to their submanager.

Now, a few weeks ago I found out that my submanager, Simon, GØSJH, had given up the position due to extra work commitments. I immediately asked at RSGB QSL Bureau if the position was still available and expressed interest to take over. Quite luckily a person approached before did not reply, so the position was awarded to me. I was confirmed as a QSL Submanager for callsign block MØPAA-MØZZZ on 23 July 2007. I’m happy I will be able to contribute to the amateur radio society here in the UK!

    “More information can be found on the page QSL for MØPAA-MØZZZ.” but that link goes no where.

    Hi Les, it’s quite strange… I can see the link is correct and points to http://sedlacek.biz/blog/rsgb-qsl-submanager/.
