When we're doing a QSO last action of kindness is to send a QSL card confirming the contact. It' s important not only to remember the QSO done, but also to acquire the credit for awards.
Don't send the QSL card, if an operator is good to send it, means not respect the normal behavor among radioamateurs or radio enthusiasts. I think we have to pay attention and we have to remember last action, after the end of our QSO. Thanks a lot. Angelo I0RNK
Is there any chance there will be a option for SWL in the futere . Like SWL callsign? I use hamsphere with a lot of fun instead of my home receiver but confirming a reception of some nice dx is realy not an option without having a actual qso. It would be nice as in real life you can confirm that you have copied a station as a SWL . If not its no problem I will enjoy it anyway.

I guess that is not really what you want. The other way is to send a QSL card anyway via a logbook entry, but this is not the "normal" way, as you said.
BTW: Your name is interesting, it's like a phrase in the aviation radio operating. :-) "Wilco" means "Will comply" = "I understood your message and will comply with it".
Usual in all cases where a full "readback" is not important (for example, Controller says: "N123AB, Taxi to holding point Bravo runway 23L, via Lima, Alpha and Bravo-one, report ready for departure!" then you answer "Taxi to holding point Bravo runway 23L, via Lima, Alpha and Bravo-one, Wilco, N123AB") and so on. . .

Thanks for the reply Jorg.
I understand . I know there is a option to rent SWL rigs , but mine is working very well HI.
So I continue whit what I do , I enjoy that very much . Will buy me a headset and start making qso on HS 4 to confirm contacts..
I really enjoy HS4 because at the real HF frequencies I have to much man made noise lately , and there is nothing I can do about it exapt moving to a place without all the Wifi , microwaves etc etc . And that is hard to find in the Netherlands .
Wilco is my real name BTW . First 3 letters of my grandpa en the last 2 from my father ,
Well hope to meet you at HS 4
