But, it's been just over a fortnight since CQ WW SSB 2012 Contest, and I have already received over 200 direct QSL requests !!
OK, I know propagation was good, I know that for lots of you guys I have been a new one on 10m, I know that many of you have never received your preciously awaited QSL from some other SV5 station in the past, even after sending your valued Green Stamps and your SASE, but ...
Of course, I also reply to bureau cards, but I scarcely receive cards from that direction, about 1-2 times per year. So the turnaround for your bureau QSL request could take up at least 1-1,5 years. However, every QSL card received is being answered exactly the same way it reached me, so even through QSL bureau, eventually you are going to get my card.
Again, please have in mind that I am NOT interested in Green Stamps and I don't make on-air traffic for extra income. I am enjoying radio as every one of us and I am always happy to give a "new one" LotW confirmation (and not only !!). Many have emailed me about this QSLing "attitude", congratulating, etc. , but I have always replied that I am just doing what is common sense.
