I'm getting my cards ready to send out for Swain's and Montenegro. I have about 4 or 5 Q's for each. In the old days a buck or two was fine. What's the going rate now, especially since Swains was probably a much more difficult and expensive trip? 5 for Swains? 3 for Mentenegro? More? Less?

Organizations can establish rules governing the behavior of their members so long as those rules are not discriminatory. Its not illegal to put a decimal point between the 1 and the 8 of an 18 mHz QSL either, but submit that card to the DXCC desk for credit and you'll also lose your membership.
