Edward (“Ned) Conklin (KH7JJ) runs the Hawaii Incoming QSL Bureau, He
operates the system that delivers “real QSL cards” in the background
without the deserved recognition. It’s been some time since he gave us
a update on the bureau’s activities. Here’s a short one just received.
The Incoming DX QSL bureau is alive and well. We’ve usually been
processing about 7000 cards a year, but so far only about 4000 in 2021.
There’s a continued shift to LOTW, and poor propagation on the higher HF
bands hasn’t helped. But still many hams like to receive paper cards.
We mail cards periodically or otherwise get them picked up for about 135
active accounts, but we’re accumulating cards for at least a hundred
more calls that don’t yet have an account or other way of receiving
If you don’t have an account with the bureau and think you might have
cards waiting for you, e-mail me at email@example.com, and I’ll be happy
to check the files.

BTW the ARRL runs an outgoing QSL Bureau for members. It offers a less
expensive way to send cards to DX location Incoming bureaus.
