Mr. Brett is certainly taking it in the shorts...

My encounters with him have been pleasant.  I *have* received the
occasional QSL card, but in our eyeball QSOs he has bemoaned the load of
QSLing versus operating versus working.  He never indicated that he
wouldn't take on a manager...I don't believe the guy is pocketing the
dough like some other well-known DX stations are wont to do.  I suspect a
case of overload.

**** I would like to suggest that another mechanism may be at work, in
addition to the "overload" problem. I will try to be as diplomatic as
possible, but the truth is that in certain parts of the globe green
stamps and IRC's simply do not reach their intended recipient. I suggest
that all who really really "need" a card, send your request via registered
mail. Works for me!
