BCLing isn't, at least in my opinion, about self-medalling, especially when it comes to QSLing. However, if your ears (and eyes) are on the spectrum since a bit of time, you realize when you achieve an uncommon result. Verifications wise, transmitting stations who relay, around the world, programmes from big broadcasters usually have shown a strict policy. All reports have to be confirmed (and consequently, are forwarded there) from the main station, not from the transmitting post. VOA, and other US Government "sponsored" shortwave transmissions (Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty, Radio Free Asia, Radio Sawa, RadioFarda) are run by IBB, International Broadcasting Bureau. (while BBC ones are under VT Communications control). Udonthani station, in Thailand, despite the general policy, answered my report (sent directly to an e-mail address found on WRTH 2010, and concerning a Radio Sawa broadcast on the 15 MHz band) with a nice card depicting the relay station itself. Very glad of this one, as the card is nice, and it comes from the place where the broadcast has been aired, not from a secretary using an Excel grid (and not an audio archive) to confirm reports. Many of those relays, following the general HF dismissal trend, may be switched off soon. Try to confirm as many of them as you can before they're gone. It's a broadcasting era that will be over.
