For what its worth, if anything, once upon a time (Don't know if it still
is) there were a few countries that required an applicant for an amateur
radio license to submit "proof" of having prior "radio experience" and
submitting SWL confirmations was one of the acceptable methods.

I normally reply with the same info they have on the card.. Most SWL'ers
will say who I was talking to (in the rare event I was CQ'ing) - which
makes it easier to 'check' that I was on the air at the time
I normally include an encouraging word or two for them to get their
license and get on the air instead of sitting around listening.
However, since our beloved A. Bell left 80M, I don't have as many SWL
