PDXG QSL Management Platform Update

Written by Gene Spinelli, K5GS on .

Earlier this year we released a report on the status of our PDXG QSL Management Platform that was designed to automate the QSL manager’s back end processes. Developed over the past 3 years it’s now at Version 4.3 and installed on servers in the United Kingdom and the USA. Exclusive users are Tim M0URX, Charles M0OXO, Pista HA5AO and Gene K5GS.

The development goal of this collaborative effort was to eliminate, or greatly reduce, a manager’s manual tasks. The first large implementation was the 2015 TX3X Chesterfield Island DX-pedition, we learned a lot about what QSL managers and users expect from an OQRS platform. The application eliminates most of the manual drudgery of processing confirmations for a single DX operator to the largest DX-pedition.

2017 Year to Date 2017 Metrics:

-    QSOs loaded:   5,018,167
-    Total number of DX logs:  800 (DX-pedition, contest, active DX stations handled by M0URX, M0OXO and HA5AO)
