I recently received a QSL through the bureau from a SWL in Germany.  The card correctly has the information of me  working another station in Denmark.  The SWL station would like me to QSL back.  My question is how do I fill out my QSL card?  I would assume I would put the SWL's callsign in the callsign box, but where to go from there?  The rpt/freq pertains to the Denmark station? Do I put the denmark's station's call somewhere?

Hope not to silly of a question, but haven't received a SWL QSL before.

All data on any card pertains to your station.  No need to place the other party's (OZ station) callsign or data anywhere.  List your own transmitting frequency, time, date, equipment, etc, along with the "SWL callsign" of the SWL station, and send it off!  Apparently, since he QSL'd to you via the Bureau, he must be a member of his own bureau, so you should be able to reply using that route.

I use my regular card that would normally send to another ham. I make changes to the card indicating the SWL station HEARD me talking to another station with the station callsign, dates, time and other info the same as I sent to the other ham station I was conversing with. I put the SWL call in the place where I normally put the ham station call that I worked. Most foreign countries treat SWL cards the same as hams and if the SWL has a listing in the bureau, they send the card thru to them.
