[RTTY] Answering QSL's

Hi Tom,

I check all the incoming QSL cards against the log. If his time and mine 
are off but a few minutes, I write in his time to help him find it in his log.

And it is amazing how many US hams don't provide all the info necessary for 
awards, i.e. missing call sign, missing mode, missing signal report, etc. 
Or tier local time is not in UTC. I write them a note and send it back with 
my card along with my email address. Several have sent back a thank you 
email. It is about time for another article in QST, CQ, World Radio about 
how to properly fill out a card.

73, Ed

Hi All

Usually after a RTTY contest I get 3 or 4 QSL requests.  Usually with SASE.

Most of the time I just get aout a card, look at his, fill it out from his
info and send it.  Wonder if that is what most of you do, or do you go ahead
and bring up the log and check to see if you worked the station or not.

Guess I'm just lazy.  73
