It has been brought to OPDX attention that QSLs sent via the 4th Area QSL Bureau to Carl, WC4H, do not get answered. He will only accept requests with SASE with sufficient postage, etc. His Web page on QRZ.com confirms he wants no (zero) cards via the Bureau. The 4th Area QSL Bureau Manager informs that he get 15-20 cards each and every month for Carl, and has finally given up trying to get him to take the QSLs. He won't even send any envelopes to the Bureau for his callsign. The Bureau Manager states that he is even seeing 2nd and 3rd requests sent to Carl, so don't waste your QSLs.
QSL Manager for K2B (Virginia) in the recent 13 Colonies event is via Nick, KK4ODQ.
