W6RO – The Wireless Room Aboard the Queen Mary

 

Established in 1979, W6RO was the first permanent amateur radio station to be installed aboard a museum ship.
  This was the vision of founding manager Nate Brightman, K6OSC, who went on to serve as station manager for
34 years until his  recent retirement.    The Wireless Room is generally staffed every day from 9:00am to 5:00pm
local time, volunteer availability permitting.   We currently have some vacancies  available, and local hams are invited
to inquire about joining us as regular crew members. Also, visiting hams may be permitted to operate the station for 
a brief period  (generally no more than an hour, at the discretion   of the Control Operator on duty) and qualify for our
 Guest Operator certificate.   Inquiries may be directed to John Rogers, KF6TTR: greyghost1934@yahoo.com 

 

 

W6RO QSL Procedure

*** Note: for Museum Ships Weekend only (June 6, 7, and 8, 2014) ***

QSO Numbers will not be required for a QSL card from W6RO on the Queen Mary.

 Please follow our normal W6RO QSL Procedure (see below) (except for the QSO Number)
 and you can request a beautiful W6RO QSL card.

 

You must provide us with the DATE, TIME, BAND, AND MODE as is normal with
 any QSL request to an amateur radio station.

 Send a business size (#10, 4-1/8 x 9-1/2”), self-addressed stamped envelope with your request.


 
   Mail it all to:

           
W6RO – QSL
            P.O. Box 7493
            Long Beach, CA  90807

 3.  Your W6RO QSL card should arrive in your S.A.S.E. in about 6 to 8 weeks.

 * DX QSLs sent “via the bureau” will be returned via the bureau system.  These do not require an S.A.S.E.
 Please allow the normal extended time for this process.  DX stations wishing to QSL by direct mail must
 include a self-addressed #10 envelope and one IRC.  An acceptable alternative to an IRC would be
 TWO "greenstamps" ($2.00 USD) if that is available to a foreign operator.  (Please be advised that the
 U.S. Postal Service is no longer issuing IRC's, although they will honor IRC's from other countries.
  Also remember that current IRC's expire 31 December 2013.  If your QSL request is postmarked after
 1 December, there may  not be time to process your request before the IRC expires.)

 We are all volunteers, and we process a large number of QSL requests every month.  If you have not fully
 complied with the above procedure, you may not receive your requested W6RO QSL card.  We normally
 process and send-out cards once per month.  There is no avenue provided to check-up on a pending
 QSL request.  If you did comply with all of the above and we somehow mishandled your request, we mortal
 humans humbly apologize.  If you have not received your card in a reasonable amount of time, you can either:

- submit a second QSL request, including all of the above items, with info from your log
- work our station on the air again and submit a new QSL request. 

  

Thanks for your attention.
