QSL'ing on Satellite

A while ago there was a thread on amsat-bb on what it 
takes to get QSL cards from those who do not seem to
want to QSL.  I have been exchanging e-mail with some
others on this subject.

What I have got from some of those I am wanting such
cards from is that they do not believe in "Wall paper".
Personally I do not care if my card goes on the wall or in
the trash.  I do not have any cards, awards etc on my wall.
I do have them in boxes sorted by awards. I just want their
card to use for an endorsements.

I know several hams who were quite active on AO-27 who are
not there any more because they could not get QSL cards back
for VUCC or WAS.  As no-code techs they were excited at the
chance to earn these awards on AO-27.  Is has been down by
several people!  But as time went on and the backlog of cards
built up they just gave up.

Right now I have a backlog of 195 QSO's that I have sent
out cards for and not received a QSL card back. Anybody
wanting a that list can E-Mail me for it. I figure I have
spent over $200.00 on SASE,POSTAGE,IRC and green stamps
for those cards.

Of those 195 there are just 38 that I would like a
card for since they would give me a new grid for VUCC or a
country for DXCC. Of those 38 there are 8 that I 
"WANT" for my project of working all of the grids in
the lower 48 states. I should receive cards for all but 3
of those soon.

Maybe I will include a $5.00 "Shipping and Handling Charge"
with a SASE Postcard they just have to sign their first
name to and drop in the mail. I bet I will end up getting
nothing for that $15.00.  Eventually I will get someone else
to go to that grid and give it to me. If not then next year
when more FM birds are up I will go there and give them out.

If you are near or in DN75, EN65, or FN14 please set up a
sked with me so I can finally change these squares from Red
to Purple at:


I wonder if we could get QRZ or Buckmasters to include a
field in the database for "Does Not QSL"!

If not may next year I will do my own callsign server home
page that does have it.

P.S. Here is the list of 38 that I want cards from. I do
expect cards from some of these soon.
