Deutsche Welle QSL Policy

Deutsche Welle will no longer QSL. See  email on the left regarding a recent DW transmission to Afghanistan. Quote: "We have discharged this service (QSL) on September 1st, 2021."

Okay. I understand. Reception reports are meaningless since remote receivers can do the job. PR for Germany is not necessary either, nor does DW need listener support from DXers/BCLers. I get it.

Guess what? It's another reason why I have stopped listening to DW and/or visiting the DW website. DW has no genuine interest in the listener. It's all lip service. 

That said, thank you for all of the wonderful years (1968-2021) when I did listen and receive QSLs and mementos from DW.
Danke. Auf wiedersehen und 73.
