qsl return rate

it appears that the qsl rate among satellite operators recently has gone way 
down. mahana has worked 126 different grids and has sent a sase to each 
one of them. she has only received back 80 cards. i know they have all gone 
out because i manage her qsl'ing and do it.

i don't understand why someone that receives a card with a sase doesn't 
either put the card back in the envelope and write 'not in the log, sorry' or put 
a qsl card in it and drop it back in the mail. 

not having qsl cards is no excuse because you don't need them. you can 
scribble on a piece of paper the contact information and put that paper in the 
envelope. you can use a post card, you can even use a business card. just as 
long as you have all the qso information and you put a signature to it. 

please, no threads on this, just send out the cards when you get them. no 
sase, it is your choice as to weather you are going to spend your own money 
to return a card. but if there is a sase, there should be no excuse.
