I asked the same question in rec.radio.amateur.space a month or so ago
as I'm still waiting for a QSL card for RS-17. I only used the Russian
address - nothing heard :(

I didn't hear from anybody who had received anything from Russia. I
guess the IRCs got 'lost' though, like you, I followed the instructions
carefully but probably the volume of mail caught someones attention.

When you see the news reports of people in Russia not being paid for
months I guess the temptation just gets too great.

The last I heard about QSL cards for RS-18 was to expect them to be sent
out late this month. This was based on the timings for last year where
cards were not sent until about a month after the bird had stopped
transmitting. I'm certainly looking forward to receiving mine.
