To celebrate the Commonwealth Games in the summer of 2014, the Stirling & District Amateur Radio Society (GM6NX) hosted a special event station at their club premises, approximately 25 miles north-east of the city of Glasgow

Loc: IO86bc

IOTA: EU-005 (Great Britain)


The Station was run by members of the Stirling & DARS along with the support of other clubs and individuals

Check out our interview on TX Factor


There were 3 HF stations and a 50MHz VHF station in operation

We were active from 1.8MHz to 50MHz; using CW, SSB and Data

For more information about the station, check us out at: www.ga14cg.com

You can also follow us on Twitter (@GA14CG) and "like" us on Facebook

QSL Information:

Electronic Confirmations

We aim to give you confirmations of your contact with GA14CG via eQSL and LoTW at least 3 times per day. Clublog updates are automatic within 5 minutes

We prefer electronic confirmations, because...

  • It saves us money. We have no sponsorship at all and are funding the special event station entirely ourselves
  • It saves you money. Please do not send us your cards, we are more than happy to use technology to confirm our QSO for free
  • You get your confirmation same day and your LoTW is as good for a DXCC or CQ award as paper with less hassle
  • An electronic confirmation never goes missing in the mail!
  • We cannot ask more of the volunteers who have been running the station for 2 weeks to manage 1,000′s of QSLs after the event as well

Please do not send us you card, especially if we have a confirmed QSO on LoTW

We are happy to provide electronic confirmations for free. If you feel you must contribute in some way, please feel free to send us a donation via PAYPAL instead of your card

All donations received go directly towards the running costs of the station and the equipment repairs afterwards (we already have some damage). No profit is made




Paper Confirmations

Of course, we fully appreciate some of the radio community still prefer paper confirmations but again PLEASE DO NOT SEND US YOUR CARD!

Our QSO Policy for either bureau or direct is that we will support requests ONLY VIA CLUBLOG!

If you want a paper card, please request a card direct or via the bureau using Clublog OQRS. When using OQRS, you DO NOT send your card to us, which is unnecessary and slows down the QSL process

Why do we only use ClubLog Online QRS?...

  • We do not have to manually check you are in the log
  • If you are not in the ClubLog log (use LogSearch above to check) then you are NOT in the log and would not receive a card in reply to yours
  • Clublog checks for us if we have a confirmed contact and we will be happy to send you a BUREAU card (Free) on request, via Clublog
  • Clublog checks for us if you have a confirmed contact and we will be happy to send you a DIRECT card (Fee applies) on request, via Clublog
  • Your request for a card is handled automatically via Clublogs OQRS and makes the whole process really easy for us to get your card to you quickly (automatic prints)

The whole QSL process is very costly and with a QSO count of over 21,000 contacts the cost is substantial. If you have requested a bureau card (which we will supply for free) and feel you would like to make a contribution to our running costs, please use the donate button below:




In summary:

  • We are not using traditional manual log checking methods and paper cards. We are actively encouraging free electronic confirmation methods
  • We are using ClubLog OQRS exclusively for all QSL requests. If you are not in the log, no request is possible!
  • If you think you should be in the log, please email us and we will check the electronic logs for mis-typed calls
  • PLEASE DO NOT SEND us cards via bureau, if your card arrives via bureau and there is no confirmed contact, you will not receive a reply. Check Clublog for a confirmed contact first and THEN use Clublog to request your bureau card
  • PLEASE DO NOT SEND us cards direct, if your card arrives direct and no confirmed contact exists, or there is insufficient postage or any other issues, you will not receive a reply. Check Clublog for a confirmed contact first and THEN use Clublog to request your direct card
  • If you are not a Clublog user at the moment, registration is FREE AND EASY. A lot easier than sending a card for sure!  Upload your log and once your log matches with ours, you can request a card direct or via the bureau
  • Requests via Clublog can only be made after a verified contact is confirmed, so we do not need to check manually and we are certain to receive your request. If you decide to send us a card via the bureau, it could take months or years (or even never) to reach us. The same applies to direct cards with currency enclosed. There is always the possibility of it going missing

Thank you for your understanding!
