QSL cards are a way of life with Amateur Radio Operators, why not take advantage of this fact. Agree? or Disagree?

The exact reason electronic qsl's shouldn't be allowed.

If I operate a contest and 600 Q's or more, there is no way that I'm going to sit there looking up addresses, filing out cards and spending 27 cents a card ! The time I spend doing that means more time away from actual on the air operating , home projects (housecleaning for this single guy) and away from the never-ending paperwork of my business.
Now if one of you anti-electronic QSL card folks want to be my QSL Manager and subsidize me by providing cards, envelopes, labor and stamps... I might be willing to jump on the anti-electronic QSL card bandwagon. But until then, I'll just keep on sending QSLs via LoTW and the less-than=desirable Eqsl.

The rest of the Awards was as easy as sending a LOG into the Awards Managers. eQSL cards are simply a way to save on postage, so I like them and think they should be allowed. Its probably to late to stop them now, if it needed to be done. Its just one of them things that probably would be hard to police anyway.

#1.) I won a FREE Gold Membership to eQSL
#2.) eQSL saves so much postage.
#3.) LoTW is a NIGHTMARE to renew a Certificate. Chandra just renewed, it was a NIGHTMARE!
The W3IZ at the ARRL, Volunteer, I guess was messing around in Chandra's WAS award account.
He was saying she set it up wrong or something about she didn't add a callsign rule.
She had the account for 3 years and KA1RWY never said anything.
Right now, I really have had it with the ARRL and LoTW, if it wasn't for those QST magazines
I would drop the ARRL and LoTW like a HOT TATER, because they guard the Certificates like GOLD
and then their workers can mess around in someones WAS award account like that.
Yeah eQSL is BETTER....bottom line...
