First of all I just want to say that sending and receiving QSL cards is a lot of fun for me. I really enjoy that part of the hobby. I always QSL to anyone that wants a card. ( on my dime). I also either send a S.A.S.E. for domestic or S.A.E plus postage for DX contacts. I went back through my log for this year and calculated my return rate for three different catagories of contacts. In each catagory I included return envelopes and postage.

DX    58%

Domestic 57%

Radio Clubs 30%

It is interesting that Radio Clubs I have contacted have the lowest return rate.
These results may not be typical for everyone. It is just what I have seen for this year so far.

Getting a QSL from stateside folks is definitely a challenge. I have far better return rates from 'DX'. I have a few states that despite how many contacts I still can't get a card from - even some who said they QSL 100%!

When I tell you I am mobile at speed on the interstate in the dark and cannot keep a good log, for you to put a reminder on the card of that and you don't, then I cannot find you in my log you may get a NIL reply if you you SASEed. For example.

 I shure wish that I hadn't bought the 1000 cards that I did, I should have bought the 100 pack instead. Because I am not going to send cards anymore unless I receive one first from them.
