A new QSL star is born

At the hamfest in Friedrichshafen in a lecture sponsored by CQ-DL/DARC, the best QSL'er of the past year is chosen. The last few years Nigel, G3TXF took the golden medal to the UK.
Since a year, a new QSL star is born. The new star lives, just as Nigel in the UK and his callsign is M0URX. The owner of the callsing, Tim Beaumont built up a good reputation in a very short time. His unique OQRS (Online QSL request system) works very well, and he offers a fast turnaround time and premium quality QSL cards.
On his website/blog you can track updates of new DXpeditions, arrival of printed QSL cards, ....
Tim, you’re a 5-star ham, keep up the good work and hope to meet you some day.

Thanks Bodo, DL3OCH

Maybe the call DL3OCH doens't sound that familiar, but you propably worked Bodo as 5N0OCH. Last week I sended him my QSLs for his Nigerian operation and included the QSL for his trips to KH0 and KH2 earlier this year. The last twe entities where new ones for me. In the mail I included a voucher for a free beer @ the Friedrischshafen hamfest. I owe him a beer after he logged met 13 times (8 bands and 3 modes) in Nigeria. I received a nice mail back from Bodo....he really like the idea of a "free beer voucher" and confirmed his presence for the 2011 event. 2 days later the QSLs were in the mail.

Bodo made a video from his 5N operation, you'll find it here. Watch out for the very addictive song!
