About QBuSThe IARU (International Amateur Radio Union) has a good working world wide QSL-service that allows radio amateurs to send and receive QSL-cards at low cost. This QSL-service however can only work properly if you deliver your outgoing QSL-cards to your local QSL-manager sorted the right way.
QBuS (QSL Bureau Search) is a small online application that helps you to sort your outgoing QSL-card properly. Just enter a callsign (or prefix) and QBuS will tell you the correct QSL-bueau and the prefix you have to sort the QSL-card under.
In addition QBuS:
- shows the DXCC (and WAE) entity, zone (CQ and ITU) and continent of the call or prefix
- allows QSL-manager lookup from the www.qslinfo.de database
QBuS is made available to all radio amateurs as a courtesy of UBA (Belgian Amateur Radio Society), the Belgian IARU member association.
