    In addition to all the other excellent advice, a flat envelope is good:

    My QSL return rate dramatically went up when I move away from the usual #10 envelopes to the European C6 envelope with a slightly smaller return envelope which fit inside flat, not folded. Same for any green stamps - flat, not folded.

    As for stations who do not appear to QSL, work another. For the most part, the rare DX are often activated by DXpeditions who make QSL'ing a priority. Why waste your time on a station who won't QSL?

    Also, check ik3qar.it/manager to see if the station has a QSL manager or ever QSL's.

    Happy Hunting!

    I sent money when I was chasing DXCC. Now if they don't do LoTW, I don't bother. I used to check qrz.com when I was working ssb in NJ. No LoTW, no talkie. I got a card from Alain in France with $2. I was so embarrassed I sent it back with my card (which I had to create myself with HP Photo Creations) har har

    In my very active DXing days (7BDXCC and Honor Roll needing only P5) I sent a lot of paper QSL cards to foreign entities. I have never done electronic QSLing. An SAE with $1 in the old days,$2 more recently with absolutely nothing on the envelope to indicate ham radio or its contents generally got me (eventually) a return card. These days the only DX contacts I confirm are those resulting in me getting a card from them first--usually via the bureau.

    I did that also with a card from Japan. I sent him my qsl card with his $2 back.
