    Thanks. I doubt I'll ever get Honor Roll. Most of the toughest countries require actual cards and they want money for a QSL card. That starts to add up. All of my QSL's are LOTW now. Indeed, it sure is fun to get notification in a few days or hours!

    That's true - I love LotW which is where most of my confirmations are.   I have gotten LotW QSLs that are minutes old, and some that are years old.  I guess for the latter, some of the ops just recently signed up for LotW.

    I also have several thousand QSL cards.  Yeah, they can be expensive but I like getting them from some of the more exotic locales.

    I kept seeing about a 30 DXCC gap between worked and LOTW that wasn't shrinking.  So last fall I bit the bullet and got the address labels, envelopes, global forever stamps and a stack of clean $1 bills.  Now down to 8 DXCC gap between worked and confirmed.  Couple are probably busted (I'm looking at you 5H3 and D67).  Couple more are on OQRS and will show up in a few weeks.  Couple are in the mail (I hope)!

    My rationale: after buying a Flex, amp, tower, antennas, 1000 feet of LMR400 the extra cost of envelopes and stamps for 100 QSLs was insignificant.  And it's kind of fun to look forward to getting the mail again, like when I was a novice hoping to get Iowa or Nebraska confirmed.
