2018 Year End Tasks

With the new year not far off maybe its time to do some administrative cleanup around the shack.

1. Update QRZ page as needed for new address, email, QSL information.
QSL info and other basic information can be changed easily. Log into QRZ page
and right click your call sign on the far right of the main QRZ page. Select edit and go at it.

2. Look at LOTW page and update TQSL software,  if needed,  to take care of new modes and fix bugs.

3. If you use the ARRL Outgoing QSL bureau check to see if your call-sign area bureau has sufficient postage/envelopes available.
 I know the bureau has gotten more expensive, but I do use it as it is much cheaper than direct mail.

I will be sending a package out before January 1, 2019. I like QSL paper cards.

4. Which brings up the issue,  QSL cards are on hand..... right?  I just ordered a fresh batch.

5. ATNO LOTW and QSL confirmations.

If you need to up your DXCC band/mode/country count now is a good time to send off your electronic LOTW filing as well as your online DCCC QSL Application that uses paper QSLs.
