A word from Scott/K7ZO QSL Manager for NK7U:

Thanks for your QSO with NK7U. We appreciate your participation in whatever contest we were operating in.

Our preferred method for confirming QSOs is via Logbook of the World. Please use that whenever possible.

If you do want a card, I QSL 100% for all cards received if you want a card in return. I am very happy to send you a NK7U QSL card and I know we have contributed to many operator's WAS, County, WPX, and other awards. Since becoming the NK7U QSL manager in 1994 I have replied to over 27,000 QSL cards. If piled up in one stack these cards would weigh 180 pounds / 80 kilograms and would be 20 feet / 6 meters high!

If you want a QSL card in return please make sure your card states "Please QSL". Increasingly I am getting buro cards that simply state "Confirming our QSO" without any indication if the sender wants a card in return. As of April 2013 I am no longer going to reply to cards that do not ask for a card in return. With my average cost to reply to a buro card being $0.13 I am just asking for you to ask for a card if you want one in return. Over the years I have spent the equivalent of a pretty good HF rig replying to cards.

If all you are doing is confirming a QSO out of courtesy, we appreciate it but save yourself the expense of the physical card and use LOTW. We do not need your card.

Direct cards are replied to typically the next day. US stations please include an SASE. International cards please include a Self-Addressed Envelope and an IRC or sufficient funds for postage. As of July 2013 I prefer to have a $1 rather than an IRC. I will make up the $0.10 difference between the actual stamp cost of $1.10 and the green stamp. Buro cards are typically replied to within 2-3 weeks of receiving a shipment from the W7 buro. I receive a box from them about every 6-9 months with 800-1000 cards. It typically takes a year to two from the time you start a card on its way to me for me to receive it.

March 24, 2014 Update: I have just finished processing the latest shipment of cards from the W7 Incoming bureau. Most of these cards are from QSOs during the period of October 2011 to October 2012. The reply QSL card shipment will be going to the ARRL Outgoing Bureau by the end of this week. In total I received 844 cards and will be sending 665 in return as 179 cards did not indicate that "Please QSL" on their card I am assuming they were just confirming a QSO out of courtesy.

Thanks again for your QSO.

Scott/K7ZO
