Bureau cards via OQRS
What is this survey about?
This survey is about allowing users to charge money for bureau cards requested through Club Log's Online QSL Request System (OQRS). This is not a survey about Club Log asking for a fee. Club Log is free.
Club Log OQRS is a computerized system for asking for direct or bureau QSL cards. It's intended to reduce unwanted cards, especially for expeditions, and simplify QSLing for popular callsigns. At present, there are two important rules that apply to all users who wish to use Club Log OQRS:
1. Bureau cards must be offered.
2. No-one may charge for a bureau card in Club Log OQRS
These rules were intended to stop commercialization of the QSL process.
What is being considered?
We are considering allowing users to choose to charge for bureau cards, or choose not to offer bureau cards.
Club Log has all-but eliminated the personal effort needed to request a bureau card, and this may be causing unnecessary or indiscriminate QSLing via the bureau. Giving callsign holders the option to charge a small amount for bureau cards would reduce this problem. However, it may also cause resentment or disputes if cards sent through the bureau never arrive.
