Exactly. Some of the material they're presenting today are, I swear, aimed at those who ride the short school bus and wear helmets walking to the playground. "This is how you cut a dipole. This is how to solder." 

If you get on 2m these days most of them don't even know how to do that...land of the might J-pole...hi hi .

The conversations go something like this...how are you doing...I am doing OK...how are you doing?...I am doing OK....and then they talk about food !!

I don't know why anyone would want to ragchew or be on a 2m repeater, but if that's what some choose then I'd say they can talk about anything they like. Who gets to decide what topics are worthy?

Oh, come on, Gene. That's never stopped you before.  Wink

My point (poorly made) is that it's just an opinion, not TRUTH. I'm not interested, but so what? There is no wrong or right way to pursue the hobby, so enjoy.

I've often seen it stated, and there seems to be general agreement, that DXers are at the top of the ham-operator heap. Of course, it was stated by DXers and agreed with by DXers. It's like right-wing talk radio and the left-wing equivalent. Both sides are preaching to the choir, and believe they are right because everybody else they ever hear agrees with them.

LOTW     

At the rate LOTW is processing VS uploads surely the system is more than 6 days
behind.  From the index of input vs output about 300,000 uploads vs  3000 processed
(yesterday to today) is a factor of 100X and will never get caught up unless the
numbers begin to tend closer together.   About a week ago I made a contact and I
had barely entered it before the confirmation had appeared.

Allen...... FYI,  I uploaded a small file (25 - 30 QSOs) on the 20th.  It did not show up last night, but it is there today.  Looks like 5 to 6 days is the norm now. BTW, I remember uploading files and having them active on LOTW in a few hours myself (In the good old days).

Just noticed this morning my QSO's are current now, being 5 days behind up until this morning.

Now if I could get a few more QSL's coming in, I would be happy. I have all the PT0S Q's I worked confirmed as of yesterday.

I can see how you can determine the number of user files processed, but how do you determine the number of uploads?

It will be interesting to see how all the Uploads from the CQWW CW Contest this weekend adds to the LoTW backlog, and processing time.

73 and DX,

Look at logbook status and it tells the number of QSO Records entered.

and the QSL's that resulted and

number of user files that have been processed.

I think one can get a good idea from those numbers and by watching how they
change from day to day.  Since I don't know anything about the code used my
estimate could be off a large amount.  But there is obviously  more data going in
than comming out.

LoTW began operation in 2003. Not sure what month.

01:08 11/11/2011
375,158,555 QSO records have been entered into the system.
46,044,077 QSL records have resulted.
45,223 Users are registered in the system
67,933 Certificates are active
2,576,705 User files have been processed

14:55 11/26/2012
457,664,730 QSO records have been entered into the system.
62,405,682 QSL records have resulted.
53,759 Users are registered in the system
80,790 Certificates are active
3,708,023 User files have been processed

I know that is only two points of data at the end of the timeline, but I would say that maybe it's time for an upgrade?

on 11/15/2011 the following was news on the ARRL site:

Currently, the processing delay is at 45 hours, down from 60 hours last week.

I see 9Y4D is uploading to LoTW now. This is great for anyone who wanted to confirm 9Y but did not want to deal with paper cards, lost mail etc.

I have also uploaded all of my 9Y4RAJ logs to LoTW from past operation.

I uploaded on 11/22 after I worked PT0S and then again after the CQWWCW contest on the 26th. Neither is showing. I'm not so surprised about the 26th upload - but the 22nd upload isn't showing and I noticed PT0S has uploaded on the 26th.

Does anybody know if there is a way to check if I'm still in the queue? Or should I just send in the missing upload again?

I haven't had any problems in the past.
