At the QSL Bureau, the G4 call sign series is in process of being consolidated. There are now just four G4 sub-groups for the distribution of QSL cards to members. G4 call holders are advised to check the sub-managers list on the RSGB website before sending more collection envelopes, as their volunteers details may have changed. Due to retirements and other commitments, we now have a vacancy for a new volunteer sub-manager to handle the G4T-Z sub group. The group receives around ten to fifteen thousand cards, spread across the year. If you are interested, please email the RSGB QSL bureau via
