Attention: (May 20, 2015)
I have processed the backlog of my NON-K1N QSL requests RECEIVED through May 1st.
All mail for the other calls that I handle will be mixed with the heavy incoming QSL requests for K1N Navassa. As such, there could be an unavoidable delay while the current mail is handled.
I suggest marking the outside front of the envelope with the CALL(s) that you are requesting.
NOTICE: K1N NAVASSA
Current QSL status for K1N: QSLs arrived from our printer WZ8P. The SJDXA QSL team has STARTED the processing. We passed out batches of QSL labels and supplies to our QSL team. Over the coming weeks they will process and mail OQRS Direct requests first. Please be patient. It will take a month or more to get QSLs out.
We had our first incoming MAIL opening party at the N2OO/KF2BQ QTH on March 14th. We had 14 SJDXA QSL team members present. We took 7 hours to open and sort 14 mail trays of QSL mail (which included some of my non-K1N QSL requests). Subsequently, we opened another full tray at the SJDXA meeting on March 25th. We opened another two trays of mail at the SJDXA meeting on April 22nd. Will open another tray on May 27th
FLASH! May 20th:
May 20th: Mail is flowing out from all QSL team members. Be advised that mail "flows". It does NOT just get sent all at one time. So, please be patient. We are about 1/2 way though the backlog so far. Everybody is working very hard on the project right now. Shouldn't be much longer. Patience please.
May 8th: The QSL team has begun to mail OQRS DIRECT requests. This will continue over the next couple of weeks. The order is "as our QSL team is able" since many of our team still work, some are retired, etc. Next to be processed will be the "direct mail" received that had "anything extra" in the envelope over and above the minimums required including notes that they donated in advance. The team continues to say "thank you" to the people who have supported this DXpedition. These have started to hit the mail. SHortly, we will continue to process the remaining direct mail QSLs. Also, OQRS direct requests will also be processed as we move forward. Watch here for future updates as we continue to process the QSL cards.
Be aware that due to the size of this QSL project, everyone really needs to be patient. Cards do NOT go into the mail all at once. They go into the mail as the team member who has them is able to put them into the mail. The team is working very hard right now. Please let us do our job. Let patience prevail. When the time comes that we are "current", we will announce it right here. At that time, we will try to help anyone with any QSL issues.
LoTW: An LoTW upload was made for all "pre-depature" advance early donors (donations made pre-January 30) as a THANK YOU for their early support. Most of the big expenses must be paid during the planning stages of a DXpedition like K1N. These expenses included a big helicopter contract deposit and shipping container freight charges, among others. Donations in advance is what makes DXpeditions like K1N possible. Another LoTW upload was made for all who donated direct to the DXpedition (not OQRS) through March 25, and again through April 12th. Everyone who requests a QSL card will have their QSO's uploaded to LoTW as they are processed. However as these are uploaded approximately once a week, there will be a delay after the QSL is processed. So, please be patient.
An LoTW upload was made for all who requested a QSL via DIRECT OQRS through March 25th, and again through April 22nd. Note: This was only for QSO's that were requested in OQRS (Direct). So, if you made 10 QSO's and only requested one QSO for your OQRS QSL, then we only uploaded the one QSO you requested. The same will be true for the DIRECT mail LoTW processing. We plan to do further uploads of DIRECT QSL OQRS requests about once a week from now on. No set schedule. Thank you for supporting this extraordinary DX adventure!
Many have asked for only an LoTW upload and no card. This will not happen. Our sponsors deserve recognition for their support. As such, the mailed QSL card will include appropriate recognition of the corporate, foundation, club and individual sponsors.
A full final LoTW upload will be made by September 2015.
