I probably get as many buro cards as Jim. I use and recommend
http://www.globalqsl.com/ . For about ten cents per card, Global takes care
of everything: printing, addressing, sending to buro(s). All I have to do
is upload an .adi file. Producing the .adi is a snap using BV7. I'm told it
is just as easy using DXKeeper or Logger32. From start to finish, it takes
me about an hour to completely process a stack of 150 cards.

A QSL is the final courtesy of a contact. Even if I don't care, the other
guy has his reasons for wanting my card, and I am delighted to help him

Contest Exuberantly,

Hank, W6SX
