Hey Bruce.

	After reading you comments above, and thinking that I have done ALL of that
and more... there are still some that WILL NOT QSL.  Even with SASEs,
pre-printed QSLs and even a $1 bill, still no QSLs.

	My QSL return rate is about 83%.  And you would be surprised at some of the
callsigns that don't QSL.  Maybe some day we all can share callsigns and
compare them.

	On the good side, having a good computer in the shack makes it so much
easier to keep track of it all.  And some day the E-QSL will be allowed.
Instant QSLing will then be a fact.  The folks against E-QSLs and computers
amuse me.  I wonder how many track their satellites manually?  Of course, we
will never know, because if they are on the list here, then they MUST have a
computer.  <grin>  I wonder is someone against E-QSLing will not apply for
their award because the LAST card needed is sent as an E-QSL.  Personally,
If it is done right, I look forward to E-QSLing!

	Take care buddy.
