So I made a contact in the Canary Islands this morning, and I'm excited because it's only the second day of me being up and going on 10 meters. The guy (EA8AM) isn't on eQSL so I presumed I'd need to get LoTW going. I went through the "Request a Callsign Certificate" process. I requested a certificate. The program sent it off through the internet. Then the instructions say this -
Do not delete the Callsign Certificate Request (the red-lined
"pending" icon) from TQSL's "Callsign Certificates" tab after the Request
has been conveyed.
I do not see any "red-lined pending" icons under the Callsign Certificates tab, or any other tab for that matter. I have not received any email conformations that indicates I've done anything whatsoever. I see no logs or any other indication I've done a thing in the program to request anything. But it definitely did send a request off, because I was watching the thing. How do I even know that anything is in the process of being completed if there is no record of my requesting this "certificate"?
Oh and by the way - I have to wait for a postcard in the mail? I thought we were in the 21st century?
