It took six days in the queue to process. My last QSL is from D3AA 2012-12-09 04:50:20

Wow, that was fast!  The last upload for me was on Dec 2, 2012 and still nada.  It's a good thing I'm not in a big hurry. Roll Eyes

The QSO date of my most recent QSO that was QSLed on LoTW (PT0S) is 2012-11-22. QSLed on 2012-12-05.

My most recent QSO date of a LoTW QSL is Nov. 25

I too had some D3AA confirmations yesterday, but the QSO's were from long ago...

Has anyone had LoTW QSL a QSO that took place after Dec 1?

I appreciate the LOTW service but wish they would be more frank about the actual situation.  Don't state that the system is running 7 days behind when some accounts such as mine is are 16 days behind - I've had no update in submitted QSO's since November 24.

I waited until after December 3 as their notice requested and have resubmitted my logs numerous times but no updates have ever appeared after November 24.  They obviously have much more serious problems than they are disclosing.  As far as I can determine my account in the LOTW database ended on November 24th.

The last of three batches I uploaded to LoTW during the ARRL 160m contest has been processed by the system.  The time from upload to accepting my QSO's in the system was about 191 hours (almost exactly eight days).  I'm continuing to upload small files as I make QSO's, with confidence they will not be lost. 

I did lose a couple of small files that were uploaded prior to the "fix," but those have been taken care of by repeat uploads.

I understand (through reading the DXLab Reflector) that the ARRL is acquiring additional resources, and hopes to have those in place several weeks from now.  In the meantime, it appears that LoTW is acting as a delay line, but is not losing anything in the process.

WA0CRI: You should upload your log(s) again. They were clearly lost.

Same happened to me with my CQ WW CW log (1100+ QSOs). I uploaded it again and it was finally processed.

Quote from: LoTW news and notes
Dec 10, 2012: LoTW Log Processing is About 8 Days Behind -- For more information on what has been happening with LoTW lately, please see this news item http://www.arrl.org/news/arrl-s-logbook-of-the-world-bug-fix-is-on-the-way.  NEW... The bug that was causing the problem has been fixed http://www.arrl.org/news/update-to-logbook-of-the-world-bug-fix.  But there is still a large queue of logs steadily being processed.  Thanks for your patience.

no explanation as to why -- if the bug has been fixed -- the processing is getting further and further behind...  Huh
would be nice to see a 'future plans for LoTW' paragraph ...

The explanation is, "CQ WW CW". What would normally be nearly a month's or more of QSO's, were submitted the evening of Nov 25 and the rest on Nov 26 and a few days afterwards. While those were being processed, it seemed like it was "getting further and further behind" when in reality the system was processing more QSO's per hour than ever before.

While some trumpeted CQ WW Phone as the biggest contest, in terms of LOTW usage the CW guys are far more likely to upload promptly (and the conditions for CQ WW CW were very very good!) and result in LOTW slowdowns. Similar thing has happened every November for past several years.

Honestly I think LOTW is caught in a negative feedback loop due to several hundred impatient hams generating queries by refreshing their QSL list every 5 minutes, uploading duplicate QSOs multiple times, and uploading every single QSO as an individual batch file.


WHY IS THE SYSTEM SLOWING DOWWWNNNNNNN?HuhHuh <hits F5 80 times in one minute>

well if it happened a year ago and not much was changed i guess the ARRL and amateur radio just cannot be expected to keep up in such a hi-tech world as we have today...

While the slow down still frusterates me to no end... It sure beats waiting on cards from some of the easy ones.
