    Still waiting on my K2B QSL card from 2018!! Maybe you should work on those before hosting again.

    Two years ago already. Time to give it up.

    You really should quote the whole post. Where I'm one of multiple people upset that the QSL info was changed AFTER the event and updated to "All SASE's will be ignored and discarded" The event hosts refused to do anything or even give a basic apology. Just "Too bad, there are worse things in life! Get over it!"

    I will give up when I get the card in hand. Until then I will badmouth the event and do my best to warn everyone away from them. Especially this year with all my extra free time Haha. They picked on the wrong person!

    Gotta love a ham with too much time on his hands. :(

    If zero K2B contacts got their QSLs that's 7% of the 13 Colonies. In other words 93% were likely happy with their confirmations. Much better percentage than QRZ, eQSL, or LoTW. Have a nice 4th!

    All hams have too much time on their hands. That's why the hobby.

    It was a fiasco for sure but I had forgotten all about it by Sep. I'll try to work them again this year. For the record, they say only 1000 cards printed - first come, first served.

    The organizer has little control over how the state groups manage their QSL's. This is all volunteer.

    And some of us volunteers are exhausted by the time it's over.

    PULLLLLLEZZZE!!!
    The OP you contacted during the event is NOT going to give you a QSL............ Get that thru your head!

    What do you want the other special event operators to do? mail you a FAKE QSL when you didn't work them??
