One of the Ham Radio related things I do is to act as a QSL (confirmation) card sub-manager for a small group of UK callsigns. This means that 3 or 4 times a year I get sent a box of cards which have to be sorted into callsign order. The owners of the calls provide me with pre-stamped envelopes and when an envelope is full I send it back to them.

A box of cards turned up this morning and I've done the initial sort into 12 alphabet groups for the bigger series I deal with and a single pile, visible at the back, for the smaller series.

Over the weekend I'll re-sort each pile and merge it with any cards I already hold which are either awaiting the arrival of envelopes or for calls where the envelope wasn't full.

The whole purpose of the 'bureau' system as it's known is to make it much cheaper to send the confirmation cards around the world since the system batches them up, it's almost entirely run by volunteers.
