Why do we bring up this issue over and over again.

I KNOW for a fact that most station do appreciate getting cards, especially
if it is a nice color card. I send out cards for each contest QSO. Many
have told me how much they appreciate that. If you don't like it, you don't
even have to collect the crads from the bureau. But I'd rather think of the
majority who enjoys the cards, than thinking of the few who think it is a
problem receiving too many cards.

BTW I enjoy your cards as well, but it is up to thge individual to either
reply or not.

BTW Marc, most good logging programs have such facilities like you describe.
