Below I share some useful Tips & Tricks about the front-end user interface.of my cloud based, integrated bespoke Log search, OQRS and QSL Manager Tools application. It offers useful functions for the DXers, the DXpeditions and strongly support the QSL manager workload automating the most time consuming QSLing processes.
i Click on the pictures to popup.
On the Log search opening page, first you need to select the DX station you want to check its log. Please note, that the drop-down list and selection is interactive. Start to type the DX station callsign than the list will be filtered and only the DX station(s) shown in the list which match the characters you typed. In combination with typing the callsign you can use the mouse or the up and down arrow keys for making the selection. When the selection jumps to the desired DX station than hit Enter than the Proceed button to open the search form and you are ready to search the selected station log.
OQRS and Not in Log/Busted Call check request on-line function is available when it is enabled by the DXpedition. Pay attention to the time stamp of the Last QSO in the log. If you are not in log, work again or wait until the Log check request function is enabled.
Move the mouse over the green checkmark to see your QSL status. Visit back frequently for the update.
If the Band Activity Modul is enabled move the mouse over the green spot to see the TX and RX QRG of the station. If no QSO broadcast and received by system for more than 5 minutes than the green colour changes to yellow. It means that the station QRX or lost the network. After 15 minutes if no QSO received the station considered inactive or not connected to the network. If all spot is grey than no operation or the internet connection is lost at the DXstation side.
If the Band Activity Module enabled the Log Search is changed to Real Time. Write your call sign in the input field, press the Search Log button than start working with the DXstation. If you are in the log the green check,mark will pops up automatically at the next refresh in the search result field. No need to press the button. If it was your first QSO with the station the "Sorry, no QSO found for xxxx" text will disappear.
The OQRS and Not in Log? buttons are shown when the OQRS has been opened by the QSL manager.
If your QSO not in the log than first click on the Not in Log? button on the log search page and send the on line log check request before processing the OQRS. See more information below under the Not in Log process.
The OQRS process requires three single steps to clain your QSL card.
Fill the fields with your QSL details. Alternatively, if you have many QSOs you can upload a standard ADIF file containing your QSOs with the DXstation. If you previously claimed one or more QSO and the request again function is not enabled, than those fields are grey (not active) If the request again function is enabled by the QSL manager, than you can claim again with some restriction. If you claimed bureau cards before, than you can request direct card again.
You also can check the QSL status on the right, Print queue or Sent.
Click on the Proceed button than you can select the QSL mode.
On the Step 2 you are asked for your email address if you selected bureau card. Do not write anything in the QSL manager field if you have no QSL manager. Write the QSL manager callsign if you want your QSL sent to you manager.
Also in Step 2, the direct QSL card will be posted to the address you write here. The Country list and the State/Province/Region list, where applicable, are interactive. Just start to type the name and select it from the filtered list.
We DO NOT use your PayPal address for the QSL posting.
Your postal address must be written in FULL.
For USA residents i suggest you use the full 9 digit ZIP it is more accurate for delivery.
Check the details of your claim and you can finalize the process. You may consider donation on this page. If your claim is payable clicking on the Paypal button. you will be redirected to the Paypal secure site to complete the transaction.
When the transaction is succesfull you will see the Thank you page and an email is sent to you with the details of claimed QSOs. Your QSOs marked for processing the QSL in the database. Check it in the log search result window moving the cursor over the green marks. You should see "Print queue"
If you may have any issue with the Paypal transaction or receieving the OQRS direct QSL please contact the QSL manager and refer to the Paypal transaction ID:
The Log Check Request Form is available when the OQRS has been enabled by the QSL manager. Click on the Not in Log? button in the Log search result window to open the form. Do not send email. I will not answer and will not make any action for email request. Use this form only! It helps to reduce the QSL manager workload and you receive answer more quickly for your log check request. Please do not add QSOs that are correct in the log. ONLY NIL’s or BUSTEDs or Unmatched.
Finally, please DO NOT send ANY bureau cards through the Bureau to us for DX’peditions. You MUST mark your log as QSL SENT.
If you send Bureau cards this causes double the workload and wastes huge amounts of time and money and this is NOT welcome.
