VP6T - TX6T/p - ZD7XF : QSLing Operations : March 2012
During the two weeks following his return from St Helena (ZD7XF) in mid-March, G3TXF replied to the 3,000 QSL letters which had been received following the 56,300 QSO VP6T operation (as well as for the 16,000 QSO ZD7XF operation). These photos illustrate the enormity of the QSLing task. All QSL letters received for VP6T had been replied to by Monday 2nd April 2012, exactly two months after the end of the VP6T Pitcairn operation. All OQRS requests have been actioned and mailed by 30th April. From 1st May onwards, all new Direct requests and new OQRS requests are being dealt with on a daily basis.
