Looks like my prediction is coming true quicker that I expected. This is taken from the TX5K Blog site.
TX5K QSL Card Update
Posted on March 19, 2013
INDIVIDUAL ADVANCE DONORS WHO GAVE $50.00 AND UP CAN REQUEST THEIR QSL BY SENDING THEIR LOG DATA TO BOB PANTAZES, W2ARP (MEMBER OF THE SJDXA QSL TEAM).
When QSLs become available, Bob will cross reference the calls to the web page advance donor sponsor list, then he will process those cards in the first batches to go out. Just our way to say THANKS for helping!
Looks like the bureau will be quicker for those who choose not to donate.
