I have been privately blasted by a small number of amateurs over my reply comments earlier tonight.
Apparantly these few feel that I am casting aspersions upon most or all KH6 amateurs because a number choose to use QSL managers. And an apology has been demanded by several of these. Now... I am far from perfect, and I make more than my share of mistakes. But I don't understand why commenting on the fact that several KH6 based amateurs... to say nothing of those in KP2, KP4, KH0, KH2, etc... choose to use a QSL manager warrants an apology. Let's be honest... QSL'ing can be a chore, especially for more active stations and for stations sought after. That's why some amateurs choose to use a QSL manager. Others, like myself, look for ways to automate and otherwise streamline the process. Personally, I consider it something that comes with the territory, but I do not expect everyone to feel that way. It is unfortunate in this case that the station that W2LO worked uses an overseas manager. Why that station chooses to do so is something I lack sufficient information to directly comment on, so I would give the benefit of the doubt and assume there's a good reason. And I can certainly understand why he is less than thrilled with sending a QSL request overseas when the station is located within the US, as it is a higher expense. Which is why I suggested he try direct with a "just sign this" card; whether or not it works, well, we'll see. But, how that casts aspersions on all KH6 amateurs? That I don't follow.
