I like cards. Before I registered with LOTW and E-QSL I used to send
box-loads to the bureau. I don't send such bulk loads now but I'm still
keen on award chasing so I'm very happy to receive and send cards to get
those awards that the technological methods don't support (i.e. 99.9% of
them!). Some of the cards are very scenic or artistic as well and give a bit
more connection with the other station than a few bytes along my fibre
Keep them coming!
