TNX (or TKS) = Thanks
PSE = Please

And to add to Walt's comment, by having the sequence of "Tnx QSL Pse" on the card, then you can circle or cross out whatever is appropriate. For example, if you are responding to someone else's QSL card, you can cross out the "Pse" to thank them for the QSL. If you really need someone else's QSL, then you can cross out the Tnx, circle the QSL Pse for emphasis, and hopefully they will respond with the desired QSL. The pse and tnx (tks) abbreviations stem from CW shorthand and have carried over into common ham lingo.
