Please help me fill out a SWL QSL Card properly.  I received a QSL from Marek SWL SP3003LG which reported on my QSO with EI8BLB 18-08-2013 2039Z 21 MHZ SSB.  On the QSL card I supply Marek, do I put his SWL call in the 'To Radio' box - or - do I put the station I had the QSO with (in this case EI8BLB)?  I want to help Marek, but do not really know how to give him a valid QSL.

Your help would be appreciated.

Thanks, Tom - WO1X

I'd put the callsign of the SWL station, otherwise he has no verication.
The SWL callsign indicates he only received you.
You can comment on the card who you were in QSO with.

In response to SWL reports, I hand-write, above the QSO report form on my card:

"SWLxxxx (his SWL ID) confirming your reception of my QSO with:" -- and then fill out the QSO report as I usually would.

I haven't got one yet, but I've seen a few others get them.

They usually treat it the same as a regular, but for signal report given they just put SWL.  Callsign would be the SWL callsign, the rest as the QSO they are confirming was SWL'd.

I've never heard of anyone having cards they use to respond to those, though some may do that if they are getting a lot I'd guess.

Yes, your question was timely for me as well. I have 2 SWL cards. One is from almost 2 years ago that just recently came through the bureau and must have floated around for a while.
I have them in my cards with questions pile but I hadn't actively looked for an answer for it, yet.
Now I have one and can send them back my card.

Thanks,

Brian
