I too have had less than acceptable service from the 0 bureau since they 
moved it to Kansas City. Sometimes more than a year between envelopes. The 
money I send seems to be used up much quicker than that though. Complaining 
about it just seems to make it worse. Wish I could figure out who my sorter 
is so that I could contact them directly. Or changing my 0 call for a 5 
call might be the answer.

A while back I got a rather curt e-mail from an SM ham who said that he had 
sent me a card via the bureau 2 years earlier and why hadn't I responded. I 
had to reply that I had never received his card to respond to. I did send 
him one direct since he was trying to finish up his WAS & he did send one 
back the same way (but no apology for the tone of his e-mailed message).
