Today, 4/16 at approx. 1500 I worked a station in Bahrain on 15 cw. Right after working him, I received an important phone call that took my attention.  Now back on a few hours later, I see I never logged him and never wrote down his call. Thought I'd just take a look at the spots to figure who he was but am limited to last 100 spots and he isn't in that group anymore.
There must be a way to see a history of spots but haven't any idea where to find that.
Anyone steer me in the right direction?
It was just a band fill but....

Hi Kathy,

What you just described happens to people a lot, myself included Cheesy  Go to www.dxsummit.fi and select search.  Type in 'A92' in the search string box and change the number of spots to 100.  See the search results below.  I would log your contact at 1500z and see if you get a LoTW confirmation.  You could always contact the DX operator as ask for the exact time of your contact.  GL. and welcome to the forum.

DO6SR          21010.0 A92GE        up                                 1510 16 Apr   Bahrain
UA3XAC         21010.0 A92GE        UP!                                1504 16 Apr   Bahrain
NA6L           21010.0 A92GE        up LoTW quick cfm                  1445 16 Apr   Bahrain
W6LAX-@        21010.0 A92GE        strong in Los Angeles up 1.8       1432 16 Apr   Bahrain
W3LPL          21010.0 A92GE                                           1419 16 Apr   Bahrain

Thanks Jonathan-that was just what I needed (other than a winning lottery ticket). I even remember w6lax's comment about being strong in LA, so followed shortly after. See another entered quick LOTW, so guess I'll just go and upload the contact. Smiley

The spot archive is also a very useful tool for researching a wanted DX station's operating patterns.
And I too have had to fill in details of a QSO sometimes when I fail or forget to log the contact!

Just a quick note. Emailed A92GE and sure enough, he'd copied my call as Em2NK, he corrected it and it has already showed up in LOTW, so I got my band fill from David!
