If you hear me calling CQ not hesitate to stop and say hello;
I think that "the final courtesy of qso is the qsl";
I will QSL 100% via buro or via direct,without contribution because I consider the radio a hobby not a "business".
I use also LOTW, EQSL, CLUBLOG and HRDLOG and my log were updated quite everyday.
