Yep, I know what you mean.  I have been working toward VUCC and WAS
on mode A and MIR.  I have QSLed every contact, and the non-response
stations a second time including a SASE, and a pre printed generic
card.  All they need to do is sign it and send it.  You know what...
still no answers.  I was taught that the contact wasn't finished till
the QSL card was sent.  Well, now-a-days, that can be expensive.
But if I get a card, I send a reply.  If I send a card, I do hope for
a reply.  Simple amateur courtesy and spirit.  Guess it is missing
in some.

I have a list of the stations that did not reply, care to compare
lists <GRIN>.  Anybody got any tricks to get those stubborn last
few to respond???

I wish it would rain in El Paso.  Not
for me, cause I've seen rain... but
for my 12 year old daughter.
