I lean more toward LOTW these days (instant gratification) and I upload to LOTW and eQSL at least once daily.
I love paper QSL's as well, and am proud do display every one I get. So, if you would like a paper card, then just send me one (via Bureau or Direct mail) and I will send you one direct. No IRC, green stamps or SASE necessary. Deal?
