It was great to receive Hector's very nice QSL card in the mail today!
I have started uploading my contacts to LOTW for the benefit of those that
use it. However, it is of no use to me because:
1) I am not an ARRL member so I am not eligible to apply for their awards.
The QSL cards I receive are, themselves, my awards. I have nothing against
the ARRL but all the money I have budgeted for amateur radio organizations
goes to AMSAT.
2) The internet, email, etc., are great but can't provide the thrill I get
when I open my mailbox and find a real, honest-to-goodness QSL card. Yes, I
know postage and printing costs money and if I didn't spend the money on
postage, paper, and ink, I could afford to donate more to AMSAT.
Evidently, many of you agree with me because, to date, I have mailed 423 QSL
cards and have received 304. That is a much higher percentage than
verifications I have gotten via LOTW.
