My XYL, K7MKL, has had her Extra for less than a year and her General 
not much more than that. She is thrilled by the DX QSLs she's been able 
to acquire and wants to get one from every DXCC entity she works, 
regardless of LoTW confirmations. She is bewildered at the DX stations 
who refuse to confirm with paper, even with an SAE and IRC or green 

I am working on a display of QSLs for something in excess of 320 DXCC 
entities (not mine, unfortunately) and it is an amazing sight. It 
saddens me that so many new DXer's will never have the thrill of seeing 
anywhere near that number of cards on their walls. I guess there are 
those of us who have been around for 50+ years and just become callous. 
Some have even become curmudgeons :>)
