TM post box

Post by ranger » 03 Feb 2018, 18:07

Hi,
Anyone know how often the PO box is checked?
I was thinking I might have had a few returns by now to a few contacts but alias nothing as yet...
Cheers

I believe weekly. The box is shared with another Radio group so post is issued on a regular basis. I'll ask Simon to if he's seen anything come through recently

Hello,

I believe Simon is looking at other options for the PO Box service, as it is prohibitively expensive to run these days, thanks to ever-increasing charges from Royal Mail.

Any cards that come through to us will be posted on as-normal.... I'll be chasing SImon this week for an update on the situation, as we need to find a new solution going-forward

Sorry for the delay....

The Craig,

do you know if there are cards waiting to be sent out/have been sent out?
(I am reliable informed at least 6 were on route via FB001)

Thanks
T.

I just chased him again now. He will be going down to check for mail this week, so if there's anything there, it'll be posted out soon after :thumbup:

I am still sadly shortly of qsl cards that I know made it to the PO Box some 6 month ago & more.
Whilst I've always been a happy TM member I cant help but feel a little cheesed off at this point.
there of course maybe a very good reason for cards not making it to the home address but without an explanation, not knowing, is causing me to question my loyalties to TM.

Is it just me or are others still waiting for cards to arrive??

Hi Ranger,

I lost loads of cards last year also - I signed up to the TM P.O.Box service, paid the fee and never received anything when I know cards were definitely sent. So sorry, you are not the only person this has happened to.

Regards,

Tim

Hi Tim,

I think we can safely say the PO Box just doesn't work for whatever the reason.
I certainly wont be using it anymore from here on in, With no word on the missing cards its time to move on.
Much seems to rest with Simon (tm001) which is where fox bravo DX send the cards as its a shared PO Box.
Craig has chased but we seem to have hit a wall of silence,
my personnel advise, if you are an existing member still using the PO Box is to think very carefully on its use.

The owner of FB has been kind enough to send a couple of cards which arrived recently to the PO Box direct to me.
I would like to thank him for his efforts in doing this, it doesn't however deviate from the TM issue...…………..
