VP6D QSL Update

19. 01. 14

JANUARY 12, 2019

VP6D QSL card designs were completed, proofs were submitted and approved for printing.

Gennady UX5UO printed the cards during the week of Jan 7th, they will be shipped to Tim M0URX in the UK during the week of Jan 14th. A separate /MM card was also designed.

Tim has already prepared the mailing labels, the envelopes are waiting to receive your cards. All confirmation requests received up to the mailing date will be included in the mailing. Confirmation requests after the first mailing will be processed on a regular basis.

We expect to place the cards in the mail system by early February. The cards will be mailed from the United Kingdom, so please allow for mail system delays before asking for the status of your card(s). Buro cards will be mailed to the world buros quarterly, expect 6 – 12 months, or more, to receive buro cards.

If you already requested confirmation via OQRS or by direct mail, our system will not allow duplicate requests. For example requesting a buro card more than once, or requesting a buro card if a card was sent via Direct Mail.

We will send another update when the cards are placed into the mail system.

BA6QH - QRP 2.5 watts (Video)

18. 12. 03

In October 28th,I came to the park on the edge of the Yangtze River and erected a 5/8 wavelength vertical antenna.(The Yangtze River is the third largest river in the world). Fortunately, QRP and VP6D are connected successfully. Later I found that the actual output power was only 2.5 watts. Thanks to HA0NAR Laci's patience,

Interestingly, there was a group of tourists who didn't understand amateur radio activities.I think it was also a good propaganda.

I had a very pleasant experience. I recorded a video of this QSO:

Thank you for your great expedition

Chris AA8CH worked VP6D from his patio overlooking Lake Michigan:

VP6D Team:

Good job on the expedition, looks like it was a lot of fun!
Here's a picture of my working conditions.

- FT817ND
- 5 watts
- MFJ-1899T

I suppose my real RST would be something like 229 or 339 but K3EL hears incredibly well and kindly gave me a 599. A couple minutes later it was all packed away on a shelf in our condo here, just in time to read the message on DXA saying I had made a QSO.
Neat system, thanks!
