CO8LY is probably the most active operator in Cuba. I just started getting lotw confirmations from him.

Glad to see Ed is now using LoTW.  That should eliminate quite a bit of mail.  He consistently has a very strong signal as well as being very, very active.  I wouldn't be surprised if he was the Cuban ham with the most QSOs.  His QRZ page has over 800,000 lookups and his bio says he also does skeds so he's a one man orchestra!

I don't know about that.

I have QSOs all the way through 2018.  I have LOTW confirmations through only 2015.

Now, if you are very patient, that would be good enough.  I am not so patient.

Maybe it's just me.  Let's see if the other shoe(s) drop.

If they don't, it's a very interesting strategy; perhaps one that other active stations might adopt.  IME (and I measured this at least once), it is not terribly common to get LOTW confirmations more than 6 months old, though it obviously does happen.

You lost me.  What don't you know about?  And, what is the interesting strategy?

My LOTWs from CO8LY stop in 2015.  So far, that's where it stands.  I have worked him since 2015 several times, including in 2018.  I doubt seriously if many are bad QSOs.

It is entirely possible that I will get the LOTW confirmations later.

But what intrigues me is if the LOTWs that are pending are no accident; that they have simply not been uploaded.

In that case, it is also entirely possible that this is a strategy of sorts.  Treating LOTW kinda sorta like DXpeditions treat it.  That would still give most of us ample incentive to mail cards.

OTOH, a second look suggests my reasoning is all off (it is speculative enough to begin with).  There are several QSOs that had no LOTW upload before 2015 as well.  So, it's kind of hit and miss.

So, maybe it is less a strategy and more whatever log sources he has so far chosen to upload.

I'm not sure there is any grand strategy at work here.  It maybe he's simply typing in old QSOs to a PC logging program and will make subsequent uploads as he makes more entries into his logging program, and subsequent QSOs will be uploaded to LoTW.  We'll have to wait and see.  I have about 50 QSOs with Ed starting in 1991.  The 1991 QSO was not verified via LoTW but my next QSO with Ed was in 2011 and I did receive a LoTW verification for that QSO.  I received nine LoTWs from Ed yesterday with five already being verified by paper QSLs from his manager.  Right now the only pattern I see is he seemed to pay attention to bands and modes worked. I had a nice assortment of bands and all three modes in my download. My last QSO with Ed was in November of last year but no LoTW for that QSO yet.

When I returned to the hobby in late 2010 I had about 15 full ARRL logging books. I never came close to typing in all my old QSOs.  I concentrated on typing in QSOs from rare and semi-rare countries and I paid attention to whether the QSO was a new band slot. A LoTW verification
for a QSO with Kure Island from 1992 is probably my best catch from the QSOs I typed in.  I was QRV for a few months in 2000 and 2001 and I have many more semi-rare LoTW verifications from that period simply because PC logging was more popular then as opposed to the late Eighties and early Nineties.

All I know is anytime a DXer from Cuba with over 800,000 lookups becomes a LoTW member it's a very good day for LoTW and for DXing.

Also S9WL, J5B, J5W confirmed via LoTW today.

Only one out of 9 QSOs with CO8LY confirmed via LoTW (between 2007 and 2017), SSB 15 M in 2015. No clear strategy IMHO, just random or year 2015?
