Title: LoTW / QSL Received
Post by: VE3VEE on April 13, 2016, 03:25:11 PM
I don't see a thread here at eHam forum where people could keep posting what QSL cards or LoTW confirmation they received so I thought I'd start it. Please, post what QSL / LoTW confirmation you receive when you receive them.  ;D

FT4XU – KERGUELEN ISLAND, activity at the end of 2015 and the start of 2016, just received via LoTW. Paper QSL card not yet received, but LoTW confirmation is at home!  ;D

Dang!  Does LoTW confirm SWL QSLs? :D  I did hear Nicolas chatting in French on a freq. I cannot legally transmit.

Hi Marvin:

Congrats on getting the LOTW confirmation. I have no idea why and how I missed that one, must have been celebrating too much etc, during that time frame. I will blame it on too much snowmobiling.


Title: RE: LoTW / QSL Received
Post by: VE3VEE on April 14, 2016, 05:15:10 AM
Thanks Mike. It wasn't too difficult to overlook it as it wasn't a large DXpedition. The operator was there on a job and in his spare time he used a low power (50W) station and a low dipole 6ft above ground to make only 216 QSOs.  ;D

Speaking of LoTW credits, I applied for some WPX awards and endorsements yesterday. 

I found out this morning that many of my prefix credits were missing in LoTW.  The WPX awards manager, N8BJQ, kindly initiated an "account update" on the WPX credits in my LoTW account, which nearly doubled my number of prefix credits.  Steve explained that " When WPX & LoTW started, LoTW only calculated from that day.  The account update should go thru all of your credits."

Perhaps this has been discussed before, but I thought it might be helpful to others.

Just to put in my 2 cents, from a very little pistol here in se lower Michigan.

These are not necessarily recent QSL's, but my nine (9) ATNO's for the past 8 months. Still waiting for FT4JA.

S01WS Western Sahara (Card only - no LoTW)
V63DX  Micronesia        (Card only - no LoTW)
BG2AUE China
TR8CA  Gabon
VK0EK  somewhere down south
V73D  Marshal Islands
VP8SGI  South Georgia Island
FW5JJ  Wallis and Futuna Islands
VK9WA  Willis Island

I replaced my coax and antenna last September after missing K1N Navassa Island. I didn't change anything, just replaced the old Radioworks Carolina Windom CW40 and feedline.

Just checked my consolidated log
and it shows an 80m CW contact with S01WS
in early 2015.

Have to see if that one hits LotW.
It would take me ONE closer on 80m.

Just in the past day:

* As others have noted - S01WS from 2014. I want to add, S01WS deserves some kind of award for their activation across every band and mode in past couple of years.

* V73D from Oct 2015 - Seems very likely to be 6 months ticking over

* TX3X from Oct 2015 - Again, 6 months ticking over

Stuff visible on my recent LOTW pages:

C91IJ
TX3X    
5J0B    
TF3JB    
V73D    
S01WS    
A45XR    
S0S    
J38XX
VK0EK
7Z1HL
A71AE

If QRZ says "LOTW" on it anywhere, I typically don't even look until 8 months after the DXpedition.  It usually shows up some time in there.  I can worry about backup paper QSLs after that.

I think Tony, ZL2AGY may have been my first ZL after I got back into ham radio circa 2007. Enough QSO's that I immediately think "Tony" when I hear his call. All my ZL2AGY QSO's (mostly, but not only, 40M) back to 2008 now confirmed in LOTW! Big thanks to Tony for the upload!!!

Have you been able to work 8R1A?  He's been very active on many bands. I'm looking to work him on all the bands that I need a QSL for Guyana and that's quite a few bands.  I'm hoping he'll use LoTW.

Had a busted call for VP8STI so got that sorted, now just waiting for the card and LOTW confirmation.

Sat at 99 on LOTW.

Its a grind to get back to 100 after a very very long time away being on the air and move from G land.  Worked 130 on CW I think, so will have to work on getting those extra cards in the next few weeks.

I have one or two ATNO's & a couple of bandfill cards that still have yet to be checked that are on paper.. I've been putting it off for a year or two now. I should probably get them checked soon...

YI3WHR's QSL card received today. Wahhab is a newly licensed ham in Iraq and he has been quite active on 20m SSB these past several weeks. Another newly licensed ham in Iraq is Sal, YI1SAL, also often active on 20m SSB. Good luck to them both and let's hope ham radio will become their life long passion.

KH0AM from the Marianas.  QSO was way back in October of 1991.

I also worked Takao in November of '92 but although I have a QSL no LoTW yet.

YI3WHR's QSL card received today. Wahhab is a newly licensed ham in Iraq and he has been quite active on 20m SSB these past several weeks. Another newly licensed ham in Iraq is Sal, YI1SAL, also often active on 20m SSB. Good luck to them both and let's hope ham radio will become their life long passion.

Operator SQ3PMM travels across Africa and uses various call signs (CN2MM, 9G5AG, 5V7MI, TY4AB, 9X9MM). He does not have QSL cards, but is willing to confirm QSOs by sending a post card. I received one from Rwanda (9X9MM) yesterday. I scanned both sides of it and emailed it to my local QSL checker who says "Looks good to me based on what the DXCC confirmation criteria are.".

Card checkers don't verify the validity of a card. We just verify that what's on the application being submitted matches what's on the physical card and that the card doesn't appeared to be altered in any way. Acceptance for credit is solely the responsibility of the League.

Amazingly enough, I only recently got LOTW credit for Senegal on 40M despite many QSO's with it every year in every major contest for years and years and years. It's interesting how some places only get visited by non-LOTW users. And then other places only seem to be visited by LOTW users.

I'm waiting for ET7L LOTW or QSL confirmation. I noticed that in the past day or two info regarding LOTW has changed on their website.

Before it used to read: "All QSOs will be uploaded to LOTW after the end of operation",

Marvin VE3VEE

Well, it appears the 9G5AG card went through.  I used the relatively new on-line DXCC process and it seems to have changed for the better.

But, there's a little story to it.  It appears to me I have experienced a real improvement in DXCC card processing.

I applied electronically (in effect, promising to the League what cards I would show to my checker using https://p1k.arrl.org/onlinedxcc/) around May 1st.  I then had the cards physically checked on May 5th.  Astonishingly to me, I got the confirmation mailing (with the endorsement stickers) today(May 16th).  The League said it processed it on May 10th.

The application has not even appeared on the Applications Received site, at least not as of yesterday.  It still doesn't today.  My prior LOTW one did and, in fact, is still there (even though it, too, was already processed).  I know it's the LOTW one because it is dated in April and agrees with the submission data from the LOTW site.

When I did the on-line card submission last year, it seemed to go through the same flow as if I had done it entirely manually.  The submission appeared on the "Applications Received" site and took about a month to grind through.

What seems to have happened this time (and it's a great improvement if this is as it seems -- and I think it is), they now check my electronic submission, make sure they are approved operations and so on, and then (I presume) declare processing done quickly when the letter from my checker actually reaches Newington.

So, it looks good.  My records on LOTW are certainly updated to match what added "slots" I was claiming with the card submission.  And it cross-checks by mode, by band, etc.

Despite my minor misgivings, it really does look like an improved process.  I now, even more, recommend you use https://p1k.arrl.org/onlinedxcc/ for your card submissions if you can.  I don't know if this is an "every time" thing or a "just when there's a little slack" thing.  But, it certainly was speedy.

Online DXCC has been available since April 2012 (http://www.arrl.org/news/online-dxcc-application-to-debut-april-2).


But, there's a little story to it.  It appears to me I have experienced a real improvement in DXCC card processing.

As does LoTW, Online DXCC (https://p1k.arrl.org/onlinedxcc/) eliminates the need for ARRL staff to manually enter data into their DXCC system from submitted QSL cards, thereby accelerating the process and making it more accurate. DXCC Credits issued to LoTW and Online DXCC confirmations exactly match the logged QSOs from which they were generated.

But why the difference in the award flow between 2015 and 2016?

I mean yes, it should have mattered last year, too, but it didn't seem to change the work flow in 2015; my call still appeared on the Applications Received (last year but not yet this year) and last year it still took a month or so to clear whereas here, it was a matter of days and my call still hasn't appeared on the Apps Received site yet.

It appears to me quite plausible that they have taken further advantage of what on-line DXCC offers in terms of simplifying their workflow and workload.

Don't get me wrong; I'm all for it even if it only happens to "some" applications and not others.  None of my other card applications over the last several years got this treatment and I know for sure that in last year's application, I used the on-line version for my cards.

I just checked and I see my only paper-card application from 4 years ago. (Just like you... I had a bunch of 9G QSO's confirmed on paper that I needed put in the system too.)

I agree that things are less than perfectly streamlined and synchronized when it comes to mixing the different application methods. Or letting members know the procedure for a mixed LOTW/online-paper application. I suspect the current process is not the final process and they are looking for more complete integration soon.

a mixed LOTW/online-paper application


I'm pretty sure there isn't such a thing as a "mixed LOTW/online-paper application". I've recently gone thru the process and currently there are two separate applications:

- Paper QSL application, and

- LOTW application

In my case, I first did the paper QSL application by uploading to the ARRL web site an ADIF file containing a list of my paper QSL cards I was submitting. The website then generated a PDF file which I printed and brought, along with my QSL cards, to my local card checker. He checked them and snail-mailed the signed application to ARRL

In less then two weeks, the QSL cards, or should I say the QSOs, all showed up in my LOTW account.

When my paper QSLs were in my LOTW account, I then applied for all the remaining LOTW credits. I did that very late at night and was very surprised the LOTW application was approved already the following morning.

The process of both, the paper QSL application and also the LOTW application, was for me now much faster that it was last year.

- Paper QSL application, and
- LOTW application

There used to be. It was called a hybrid application, but that was eliminated in April 2012. Now there are just paper (2 types) and LoTW. I advise applicants to do their LoTW application first, and once it's approved then proceed with either an online or traditional paper application. Obviously the online application is better since it's half the price, and if you're smart and use your logger's ADIF features it makes the paper application completely painless and simple. I use DX Lab Suite, and DX Keeper makes paper applications using the online DXCC a breeze.

Incidentally, putting my DXCC Card Checker hat on for a second, I think I speak on behalf of every checker worldwide when I say this, but when you're assembling your application for checking it's always appreciated when the cards are bundled label side up. No biggie when you only have a dozen cards or so, but if I'm checking a full hundred (or worse, 200+), the processing time is FAR less if I don't have to turn every card over to get to the data!

Yes, I did that and it does show up there.  Just not in the "main" or "regular" DXCC application page.  That's why I infer an improved workflow, both because that didn't happen and because it is so much faster.

And it just gets more interesting, even weird.

A day or two after I got the usual paper accounting and the stickers for my DXCC awards, my card application shows up in the on-line DXCC applications received page.

Be interesting to see what happens from now until it disappears since I already have the mailing.

Keep in mind this doesn't seem to be an actual problem.  I got my credit and everything.  I'm happy.  But, it is a very strange flow.

It's nice to see old timers starting to use LOTW. A couple of years ago, I helped a friend of mine to switch from paper log books to logging software and to start using LOTW. He rewrote, little by little, most of his old QSOs to his new logging software. Before, he didn't even know how many countries he had confirmed. He only knew he had in his garage shoe boxes filled with thousands of QSL cards. After uploading his old contacts to LOTW, most of his entities were immediately confirmed and he was able to see, on his LOTW web page, exactly which entities he had confirmed on which bands. He now cannot imagine ham radio without logging software and without LOTW. He was able to get his first DXCC award with stickers for I think 310 entities as well as his 5B-DXCC.

I need Norfolk on 40 but they were working a lot of JAs at my sunrise.  They did switch to NA but too late for New England.  Hopefully I get another shot when condx favor me.

Your 40m QSO with Norfolk will be in your log soon, I'm sure! There's going to be a lot of ham radio activity on the island over the next few weeks:

VK9NT - May 20 to May 31

Thanks for the info, Marvin.  I used to copy the info from the various DX newsletters, including The Daily DX, to a calendar but once I made HR I think I got lazy because I'm mostly filling in band slots now.

BTW, I had no idea you grew up behind the Iron Curtain and started as an SWL.  I read that in the P5 thread. I also started as an SWL but I was born here in the USA.  I used to listen to Vlad Posner and Joe Adamov from R. Moscow, although not regularly, but even though I was just an impressionable teen I never fell for the propaganda.  I detested Communism and the USSR.  I used to mainly try and tune in new countries back then and I rarely listened to program content except for the BBC because I enjoyed their world news.  It seems little has changed in 40 years because I'm still chasing new countries but I do enjoy having ragchew type QSOs with DX stations.

I don't know if it's the language barrier or old habits being slow to die but I find it extremely difficult to go beyond a signal report and exchange of station details with most stations except for those in the UK, Australia, and New Zealand.  I can understand the reluctance of those in Russia and their allies in Eastern Europe to go beyond a signal report and exchange of equipment but I find the operators who are now in NATO countries are still hesitant to engage in conversation.  

That's a very nice photo of your 20 meter monobander atop that tall tower on your QRZ page.  I know many XYLs can't stand the look of a tower or an antenna but I really like that photo and I'm extremely jealous of that monobander and  tower you have.

Keep up the DX spots.  I find your DX spots very helpful!

Chris,


BTW, I had no idea you grew up behind the Iron Curtain and started as an SWL.


From the early 1970s till 1986, when I left the country, I was very active there in a couple of radio clubs mostly contesting and DXing. When I moved to Canada, I became QRT. I was briefly, for about a year, active in 1992, when I lived on the top floor of a 22 floor building. I was able to put up a 2 element Quad on the roof. Unfortunately, shortly after, a telecommunication company leased the roof for its own antennas and mine had to be removed. I became inactive again till about 3 1/2 years ago.


I don't know if it's the language barrier or old habits being slow to die but I find it extremely difficult to go beyond a signal report and exchange of station details with most stations except for those in the UK, Australia, and New Zealand.


Chris, I'm pretty sure it's mainly just the language barrier and nothing else. The English language wasn't taught behind the Iron Curtain. Most of us learned just a few sentences to make short QSOs in English. If you make thousands of QSOs using those few phrases, you become good at it and you will make the impression you can speak the language, but in reality you can't. Young people there learn the language in schools now, but few of the old timers have gone back to school to study English...

Great story Marvin. It's a lot of work, but the dividends are worth the effort.

It's even possible to just "move on" from where you are and ignore the old QSOs.

As some of us get older, we put up better stations.  When I finally became a bigger gun, I also found (especially over the last couple of "peak" sunspot years) that I was able to replicate just about everything I had previously done.  Not all, to be sure, but plenty enough.

So, if someone reading this just can't bear the thought of typing in all of those old QSOs -- just don't.  Pick up from where you are and you'll be surprised at how well you do.

Or, just sift through the old cards (does not take that long) and "pull" all the rare stuff.  You know what it is, so it's not the big a bother -- or that big a volume.  You can turn in the cards for credit (if you haven't) or simply type in that relatively small number of QSOs.

If you've turned in some DXCC in the past, its nowadays pretty painless to download the whole bunch.  That's right, whatever you have credit (even if it 100 old card only submissions over the years) for is not all that hard to import into your logger.  There's an option to download ADIF for your whole account.  It used to be obscure, but now it isn't.  So, you can do "from here forward" or even, with only a bit more work "from here forward plus my existing credits."

When I got started with LoTW, I had several logbooks filled.There were 25 Q's per page two sided pages.

My goal was to enter (1) page at a time, while was in my shack listening to the radio.

This was done during my spare time. If I missed a day no big deal.

This was time shared with Family, job, plus other responsibilities.

After many months all of log data had been uploaded. Now before I shut

down I upload my log data . Sometime I forget but never too often.

Marvin VE3VEE

That is pretty amazing Marvin! That is a lot further along than when I started filing for DXCC / LoTW. I think I had 20m, CW and stickers for 250 entities when I filed.

I still have more from old logbooks I need to enter into LoTW.. at some point I want to sit down and enter all my contacts from years past. One of these days I will start knocking that out in small chunks. It certainly was need to see a QSO confirm from almost 27 years ago!

In my case... my log from when I was a kid, has many many problems with localtime to UTC time conversion. Off by an hour due to me not taking into account DST, or off by a day because I put in local date while it was the next day UTC.

Out of a few thousand QSO's I typed in from the 70's and early 80's, only two matched in LOTW. Neat that those two matched! I bet if I had the time details more accurate I would've gotten several more matches.

More interesting to me are the hand-written QSO's I have from when I was a kid. Plan to keep those!

From when I was a kid, I just have a couple deleted entities that would be worth something after I get honor roll to have a bigger number on one side of the slash. Nothing at all rare, East Germany, Carribean islands before their restructuring, etc.

Tim,

My friend ( om3im ) was in the exact same situation. Some QSOs in his oldest paper logs were in UTC, some were in his local time with or without the proper DST. What a mess! After he was mostly done with the rewriting of the QSOs and after uploading it all to LOTW, we looked at his worked but unconfirmed entities. There were some really rare ones. We checked, one by one, if any of those included stations who uploaded logs to LOTW. If the QSOs were with LOTW users, we would create in his logging software duplicate QSOs with different times accounting for the possible time difference between his local time (with or without DTS) and UTC, and then we uploaded those duplicate QSOs with new times to LOTW. This way we were able to recover a few rare entities for him; entities he never had confirmed with paper QSL cards before. Some of these newly confirmed new entities were QSOs 25 to 30 years old. What an excitement it was for both of us!  ;D

By typing in some of my old QSOs I picked up LoTW confirmations for Kure and Pratas.  Those two stand out but I'm sure there are others.

I concentrated on the rarer countries and left out many QSOs with common countries like Germany and Italy.  Just getting Kure and Pratas made it worthwhile although I did have QSLs so I would've got credit when I submitted my QSLs to my card checker.  The other day I got a LoTW match for a 1991 QSO.  I can't recall the country so it must not have been rare.  I was licensed in 1988 but my earliest LoTW match was 1990 or 1991.

So, no need to type in every QSO but I would concentrate on countries that would make the 100 most wanted list.

Matches includes:
ZP5 @ 1985!
JW @ 1986
ZS8MI @ 1989

And quite a few in mid/late 90's... whish more would use LoTW, so much simpler than having paper QSL to be verified.

When folks only upload the QSO's they "need" that's a sign they haven't really drunk the LOTW Kool Aid yet. They've just barely sipped it, so they get some personal advantages, but they aren't sharing the advantages with everyone else.

LOTW works most effectively when everybody uploads everything all the time. It's true, that's asking a lot from a guy who only does paper logging. But maybe after they see some of the advantages they will switch to computer based logging and then upload everything.

BTW a lot of folks have obviously drunk the kool-aid by now, and that's good!

Sure, but at the moment, we are discussing someone with paper logs and possibly thousands of old, mostly dead QSOs, not stuff you did "today".

The benefits for all that older stuff, for everyone, are kind of marginal.  In many cases, if not most, the card has been in the shoebox for years (if wanted at all) and most awards (DXCC or anything else) related to those QSOs have long been claimed.  And, if you are some W in New York State, not many people need your QSO confirmed to start with.  If they did, they got your card years ago.

If someone is "up" for typing in all that stuff (one enterprising Ehamer found an on-line source to pay for the typing!), well, more power to whomever that may be.  For the rest, who may be barely or recently computerized, there's no point in discouraging them with the counsel of perfection.  They can get potentially interesting results with just the "important" QSOs however they define it (probably rare DXCC mostly) for not much effort.

Going forward, we can hope to persuade them of the benefits of uploading everything.  The past?  That's really up to them.

A very nice card in the mail this morning from 9H3ET from 2013, thats another one off the list.

Combine that with a very spicy card from BV7GC and a nice tropical picture from VP2MDG yesterday its been a good week.

Its hard going when you have been QRT for 20 plus years and changed continents.

I put a few pages that I had into the logger and then LOTW and got nothing back  ???, umm, managed to get hold of one station and queried the time, found that was 12 hours out, but still no match, I had applied the date line the wrong way and was 2 days out, so then had to edit them all.

Gavin, I did 960 QSOs (it's a pity I wasn't able to spend more than 22 hours contesting). The interesting thing is, it's exactly 24 hours after the contest and 245 QSOs out of the 960 have already been confirmed via LOTW. That's 1/4 of QSOs confirmed in the first day after the contest. If this doesn't motivate non-LOTW users to start using LOTW I don't know what else will.  ;D

I got my C5s, too, but it's kind if bittersweet in a way.  I got the cards for those and even had 'em checked long since.

It's kind of fun in some ways and discouraging in others when you get a two, three, five, twenty year old LOTW confirmation.  By the time one gets it, it is kind of irrelevant unless you are extremely patient.  I'll gladly wait a while before sending a card, but two years is well beyond my limit.

I got my C5s, too, but it's kind if bittersweet in a way.  I got the cards for those and even had 'em checked long since.

It's kind of fun in some ways and discouraging in others when you get a two, three, five, twenty year old LOTW confirmation.  By the time one gets it, it is kind of irrelevant unless you are extremely patient.  I'll gladly wait a while before sending a card, but two years is well beyond my limit.

I think in most cases these are new LOTW users uploading old logs. It's nice to see new people joining LOTW.

7X2JV has joined the club.  All 4 of my QSOs were in 2014. I don't believe there are many Algerians using LoTW.  Nice to receive his credits.

How is this forum went all these years without something as basic as a LoTW thread?  Kudos to VE3VEE for starting this informative topic.

YI3WHR just received his LOTW certificate. Now he just needs to figure out how to use it. He's planning to read the Help file.

Wahhab, YI3WHR, is a recently licensed ham in Iraq. He's been very active and has achieved quite a lot in a very short time. He started with a home made dipole low above his roof, then he graduated to a Moxon antenna at a slightly better height and now he is thinking about a 3 element Yagi 12 meters (40 feet) above the ground. Originally he started just on SSB, but has since tried all the modes he could... RTTY, PSK, SSTV, JT65, JT9. Now he sent me an email saying he wants to learn the Morse code!!!

How refreshing it is to see a new ham who has in such a short time got involved with this hobby so much and he even wants to learn the Morse code!!!

Were you a pre-trip donor?  I was, and I'm wondering if I was supposed to use OQRS or if my donation entitled me to a QSL.  These policies vary from one expedition to the next so they're hard to keep track of.

Unfortunately this time I was not a pre-trip donor.. I donated when they went on the air and then donated again with oqrs (I like to donate beforehand when I can). I don't recall if they had any sort of policy on QSLs for donors. I normally pay no attention to that and just donate a second time when I fill out an oqrs.

ET7L - from the QSL manager's QRZ.com web page:

"20.06.2016 - All paper requests are sent. On June 21st we start to send OQRS direct.".

It seems the OQRS is the slower route and the sending of a paper QSL card to the manager is the faster method, at least in this case.

No, ET7L hasn't uploaded any QSO to LOTW yet. I remember reading the manager was going to upload to LOTW when ET7L approved by ARRL and LOTW certificate issued. Perhaps ET7L has not yet been approved.

Jan, Ray, Graham,

Thanks a million for your responses and for giving me hope. According to my XL spreadsheet, it's been 455 days today since I requested a QSL card from him as per his QRZ.com page instructions ($5 via PayPal). Since then, we've exchanged friendly emails on 4 or 5 occasions and he always assured me a QSL card would come. A month and a half ago, I sent him $15 via PayPal, asking him if he would be so kind to send me another QSL card via registered mail. He said he would. I need to be more patient.  ;D

I am sure my card for the RTTY QSO is not far behind, unless it has been lost by "our postal system". I got a letter from a place 15 miles away from me dated 04 July 2016 and it arrived yesterday. Pony Express is faster than our Post.

I also received LoTW confirmation for a 6 meter contact with VP2ETE last weekend, but just for the DXCC slot....not for the grid (FK88).  I had the same thing happen last year with HI3TEJ.  I received the Dominican Republic confirmation on 6, but no credit for FK49.  I would really like to know if everyone else has noticed the same issue with those confirmations, or if they just failed to include their grid info on MY qso's (seems unlikely) .

"I had the same thing happen last year with HI3TEJ.  I received the Dominican Republic confirmation on 6, but no credit for FK49."

I received an LOTW confirmation from HI3TEJ in 2010. It shows the grid square.

Leaving off the grid square isn't uncommon, probably because people fail to notice that there's a second page in the TQSL setup for locations.

They failed to include their grid square in the LoTW "Station Location" used to upload the QSO. My experience has been that an email message requesting an update to their "Station Location" followed by a "re-upload" is effective.

my oldest Q is the one mentioned above, Oct 2001. I also have 2 from 2002 which haven't hit LoTW yet (probably hand entering them from his paper log).

Gibraltar isn't rare by any means, and there have been a couple of LOTW users on from there in the past, so above is not earthshaking news. But it's a very positive development.

I worked him yesterday first on CW then phone. The Phone QSO counted as a 17 meter challenge point as well as a new phone contact on LoTW. (I have cards for others but they've never been checked)

Both have been confirmed on LoTW.

Nice to have him there. I hope he does RTTY!

RI1FJ - Franz Josef Land

Thanks to Tom, N8EHW, for mentioning in another thread about this updated information regarding RI1FJ status. Today, his manager posted the following at www.qrz.com/db/RI1FJ

Quote
14 August 2016 update

Gentlemen, Eugeny RI1FJ left the island on 5-6th August. He is onboard RSV Somov, sailing home. Watch Somov route at http://194.190.129.43/ships/somov.php As soon he is on the Internet, I upload his log onto clublog.org, and everyone will be able to use OQRS form on this page as well. Please be patient, all requests will be replied! :)

I've found that for some reason, Central and South American stations are a little more reluctant to do LOTW, so even some common ones there are worth noting.

Also, a bit farther back in time:  7P8C

Here's a special one for me... XX9LT via LOTW for a JT65 QSO... this is my DXCC entity # 200 on digital modes. I started with RTTY just over a year and a half ago, then ventured into PSK and JT modes. I mostly only call stations when they are a new country for me. In fact, so far I've only made exactly 300 QSOs on digital modes. That's a QSO and a half per entity, LOL  ;D ;D ;D

Title: RE: LoTW / QSL Received
Post by: W6GX on August 24, 2016, 04:52:46 PM
That's a nice catch Marvin.  I only have XX9 on SSB.  With declining band conditions I don't think I'll work XX9 again until cycle 25.

I also chase the digital DXCC.  Currently I have 271 worked and 264 confirmed.  I use DX Labs and it will tell me if there's a new country on digital that gets spotted.  Nowadays I don't have many opportunities but with 200 confirmed you still have lots of opportunities.

Thanks Jonathan. I actually thought I worked a pirate. He had a good -7dB signal, but it seemed like there were no other callers at that time but me so I wasn't really sure if it was the real XX9LT. His call sign has been used by slims more than once. The LOTW confirmation was a pleasant surprise.

With sincere gratitude to Gene UA9AB. I received in the mail today 2 gems. Both for QSOs dating back to April of 1989 !!!  Franz Joseph Land from a log entry that I didn't realize was FJL until I typed in the paper logs to electronic log and Uzbekistan from the very next day. This is awesome because I've never been able to work either of these entities since :o. It's amazing that both of them are still active and kept their logbooks. If any of you are missing old Qs from the USSR give Gene a shout. His email is good on QRZed .com and he is an avid stamp collector. I'm sending him some nice commemorative stamps as well as a bunch that I've received from around the world. Happy Happy dance time !!  Gary

Gary, congrats! What was the call sign of the FJL station? A friend of mine was recently unsuccessfully trying to get a QSL (via a German manager) from an FJL station from from the late 80s early 90s and I wonder if it could be the same operator.

My 3XY1T LotW QSL was also in March, but it was OQRS... they had an "Express LotW" option. For a lesser amount you could opt for immediate Lotw upload and no paper card. Personally, I really like this option and hope more DXpeditions offer it.

Thanks for the info on J5... I need that one on 160, 80 & 40m plus Digital. My beam will likely be down by then, but hopefully no worries!  :)

I am morally opposed to DXpeditions charging for LOTW uploads. Yes, I know, I have compromised my morals and have effectively paid DX for a LOTW upload in the past. And yes, I know that a fringe benefit to early donors is often a prompt LOTW upload. You may have seen me complain here loudly when a famous DXpedition earlier this year rescinded their promise that early donors get prompt LOTW uploads and were trying to get me to fork over another $100 after the dxpedition for a upload!

I keep track of which DXpedition organizers do prompt free LOTW uploads not requiring fees to be paid. And I donate more often, or more money, to those DXpeditions.

I am morally opposed to DXpeditions charging for LOTW uploads.

Morals or self-interest?

Most DXpeditioners, from the common ones to the rarest, tend to pay half of the cost of putting the DXpedition on.  Costs that, even after allowing for today's low inflation, seem to be rising.  So is the government hassle factor.  If we somehow paid more of that, we'd have a lot more DXpeditions.  But no, we say it is a "hobby" and nobody should "have to pay."  Except, of course, somebody actually does so.  It's just a question of "who".

It's also very clear from experience, that many consulting adults are willing to pay for that quick response.  Why not reward the hardy DXpeditioner with a modicum of cash for doing so?  I just don't see this as a moral issue at all.

You, of course, are free to withhold your support from such DXpeditions (though you admit you often don't).  If Clublog offers this, go ahead and don't use it.  You can wait for when and if you get that freebie LOTW upload.  I do it myself sometimes, but I don't pretend it's any moral crusade.  Doubly so when, in a strange double standard, we accept DXpeditions that don't do LOTW at all and grouse about the ones that charge for it.  But direct QSLs are much more expensive all around.  Even two bucks for an LOTW upload is cheaper than a direct QSL.  And many DXpeditions and especially local operators tell you outright to forget the "buro," which isn't as cheap as it looks anyway.

If there's any ire that needs to be directed, direct it at the DX that isn't part of LOTW.

Truth is, it's really the medium rare stuff that's the issue.  The Heard Islands of the world have to take foundation money and for the foreseeable future, that means that somewhere between six months and a year out, you'll get your freebie LOTW confirm.  And that's the difference between Honor Roll or not.

Unless you think you're going to reach 3000 on DX Challenge, who really gives a damn about the rest?  Just don't QSL the ones that actually dare to ask you to fund them in any way, including confirmations.  I know I balk sometimes when the direct costs get to be too much.  I can usually find a substitute.  But LOTW is always cheap.  The sticky ones are the ones that "magically" (often not strictly documented) only do your LOTW after you send direct.  That's irritating, but I already agreed to go direct.

It's all a question of patience in the end.  You wait long enough and you can find some DXpeditioner that doesn't care about cost.  Piggyback on them, just like always.

Title: RE: LoTW / QSL Received
Post by: W6GX on September 29, 2016, 02:37:17 PM
Here's a possible solution on how to handle the LoTW part.  Have Clublog keep the existing format, either Buro or direct.  Once the user click on the direct method it goes to the 'check out' page.  Somewhere on the 'check out' page add a box with the option of opting out of a direct card and replacing it with LoTW confirmation.  The small box could say something like this 'by selecting this option I agree to forfeit a physical card in lieu of an express LoTW confirmation.  100% of your donation will go towards offsetting the dxpedition budget'.  Those who are against pay-for-LoTW will not click that box, and perhaps they will still get a LoTW at a later date.  Those who prefer LoTW will get an express LoTW confirmation.  It's as simple as that.  Of course the dxpedition still has a choice on the express LoTW option.  That option shouldn't be made mandatory on all dxpeditioners.

Jonathan, many of us feel the same way, but the following is a reply I got regarding the LOTW-ONLY option suggested for OQRS:

< quote >

Hi Marvin

Thanks for the feedback. This is a contentious area but I appreciate your input - and I know it is often discussed as an option. It is, unfortunately, considered to be "charging for QSOs" and I would suggest that the Club Log pre-donation feature is used instead. ie:

https://secure.clublog.org/make_donation.php

The expedition owners can decide what to do with pre-donation funds, including thanking those people via early LoTW etc - all of which is of course equally contentious, but this way it is their decision, rather than Club Log's!

Yes, it is just a matter of time. The technological progress cannot be stopped. LOTW is more convenient and less extensive and I think it just benefits our hobby more when we give a dollar to another ham rather than to the post office.

Title: RE: LoTW / QSL Received
Post by: W6GX on September 30, 2016, 02:01:50 PM
Here's another idea.  AFAIK Clublog requires free buro cards to use OQRS.  Clublog can still keep that policy however in addition to a free buro card they can add free LoTW as an option.  If the dxpeditioners feels that buro cards are too much of a burden they can choose free LoTW and not offer a free buro card option.  Of course they can still put a delay on the LoTW uploads as to not hurt 'donations' from direct card requests.  Dxpeditioners put a delay on buro cards today.  So in the end there's very little negative impact to the users unless the user demands a free buro card and the dxpedition decides not to do buro cards.  From an ethical point of view a free LoTW confirmation is the same as a free buro card.  For those users who wish for an express LoTW upload a donation threshold can be set by the dxpeditioners.


Under the current OQRS one will get a physical card no matter what, which is wasteful especially if the user don't even want a card.

I like the idea.

Now OQRS offers Paid Direct vs Free Buro. They could add Paid Express LOTW vs Free Delayed LOTW.

Anyone receive a ET7L confirmation via LoTW yet?


About a month ago, I read somewhere that the activation was still not approved by ARRL at that time. I haven't heard anything new since. Does anyone have an update?

 More than a month ago there was a discussion on the Topband reflector that paper ET7L QSLs submitted were rejected by ARRL because of lack of documentation. Some mentioned that there was a question regarding whether the ET7L license had been issued by the proper Ethiopian governmental agency. There have been no LOTW uploads.

The issue seems to be up in the air right now.

Congrats Zack. I think FO5QB is a brand new user of LOTW. His QRZ.com page today still indicates he doesn't use LOTW. Two days ago I received two LOTW confirmations for 2016 QSOs and yesterday one for a 2014 QSO. Weeks ago I worked him on RTTY and his was my first confirmation for French Polynesia on that mode.

Rich, indeed he didn't ID often at all. I was making a recording of his CW signal, but without his call sign the recording had not much value for me and after 30 minutes of recording him without a single ID I stopped recording.  ;D

I suppose I should start chasing some paper, especially for ZA/ZA1P.

You know, that's an interesting strategy point.  I know some DXers have decided to live and die with LOTW only.  

And, truth be told, had I done that myself, my Mixed DXCC totals would be about the same (at least they would after about 2004).  But, I didn't.  And, my DX Challenge numbers would not have been as good.  

What I now do one of two things.  If they say they will do LOTW, I will wait and see.  Usually works.  If they aren't promising (or outright rejecting) LOTW what I now do is wait an interval (at least three months) and see what happens.   If somebody else comes along that confirms via LOTW, then I toss the would-be direct card.  If the same person "goes back" (happens more than you might think, even without any announcements), I might work the station on another band on the second trip and so save an extra QSLing.

I find that somewhere between 90 and 120 days, the odds of working the same station again fall off "enough" that I tend to QSL then.  As a result, I don't suffer a lot of "Oh, went back X months or even X years later and I worked them again."  And, I've moved far enough into the year where conditions probably have changed, so the odds of working someone else, soon, also tend to go down.

But, what I am also starting to see is a lot of very old DXpeditions, unannounced, loading up their Qs into LOTW.  When that happens, I think I know why.  Having been the QSL manager for my own very minor DXpeditions, I have learned that the card volume really falls off when you upload to LOTW.  If you don't want a lot of cards, upload during or immediately after the DXped.  Now, two, five, ten years out, even the rarest place is going to be down to a trickle of cards.   Easiest  way to cut that trickle even further?  Upload to LOTW if you haven't.  There's little or no profit in QSLing to start with and even less for someone who waited five years to QSL you.  This is what I think some expeditions are doing.

So, if you're dedicated to "LOTW only" as your confirmation strategy, you might wait five long years and see what happens.  But, there will be at least band countries, especially on 10/12 or 80, that you don't get because you wait.  By then, your station may have changed a lot and maybe not for the better.  Even so, I've performed an accidental experiment and found I could QSL about half of 20-year old cards I never got.  But, by the same token, there is an attrition if you wait.  People go SK, logs get lost, computers get upgraded and logs become unreadable.  You really can't wait forever.

Somewhere between ninety days and five years is a strategy that would suit everyone reading these words.

I am on top of my Entity confirmation, with 323 worked and all confirmed, but am about 250 band fills behind in confirmations for Challenge points. With DXCC done, all bands, there is not much incentive to chase cards. I am about 35 confirmations off 2000 Challenge points, but will let those come in whenever they do with LotW. A few new ones have come in already from the CQ WW, including BA4TB on 160 m!

With postage out now at $2.95, that makes $5 or $6 for a direct card return. Now with maybe 200 cards to chase, the total cost = Forget It.

I have run out of cards, and am having second thoughts about getting more printed. I have been meaning to get going on Global QSL, which allows me to order a small stock of cards for direct requests, and the Bureau burden can be done electronically.

I get significantly fewer cards now, via direct or bureau unless I request them. That is a GOOD thing. I don't mind replying but I think that postage costs are making it too prohibitive. I upload to everything - LoTW, eQSL, QRZ etc.

I have been meaning to get going on Global QSL, which allows me to order a small stock of cards for direct requests, and the Bureau burden can be done electronically.

That's a good way to go.  But there may still be a residual of cards you might have to deal with.  With a little work and thought, you should be able to get cards printed at very small quantities for maybe 5 cents and at very small quantities.  I mean starting at quantity four.

The professional QSL printers get you to believe any amount under 1,000 is very expensive.  Well, for offset printing maybe it is.

The trick is to make your card in straight up black and white with at least a 0.5 cm margin around the card.  You don't need any fancy artwork.  Just a QSO area box and ordinary font for your call, grid square, address, etc.  Plus the magic phrases like "Confirming our 2way QSO" and "PSE TNX QSL".  Any software, such as whatever came with your digital camera or "The GIMP" (free) can do this.

If you design for the standard 9cm x 14cm overall size (including the 0.5 cm margin so that you have 8cm x 13cm to play with), you can put four of these into an A4 image and, one way or another, arrange to have it printed, verbatim, without scaling (you may have to trim the full A4 sized image as presented to your software, by 0.5 cm on each margin, so the printing process will restore it).  There will be a center "corridor" that's wasted, but you can put cutting guidelines in that area.

Take that sheet to any sort of "instant print" or print it on your own laser printer if you have one.  I can get cards printed for 5 cents or even less by this method.  And, the minimum quantity is four, so you don't have to have a big box of cards laying about the house.  Cutting the cards isn't all that hard. Just use any non-guillotine type cutter.  The shops usually have one you can use.  Or, buy a very inexpensive hand cutter (about 10 USD).

Thanks Marvin.  That was an tremendous opening on 80m to the Indian Ocean.  Funny thing is I wasn't able to hear a single station from Europe.  So when the Op worked a station from Europe I had no idea on the exact QRG.

I almost gave up fifteen minutes before I worked him.  My eleven-year-old came to my shack to tell me Mom was getting ready to shut off the power :D  Perhaps I need to get a generator as backup power ;D

Yes, very tough when you're working a pile and can't hear who they're answering.

I was getting discouraged at first. They were peaking s6-7 but the majority of stations worked were still EU. When I started hearing more NA get logged I kept at it.

Many, many years ago during an interesting QSO with a fellow teenager in Germany, I ignored my Dads' summons for chores and he actually did shut the power off to my room  >:(

SM5GLC: I also heard when you got through - congrats.

I was most pleased to get called by 3B9HA in the 160 M contest last night and fine LOTW confirmation before going to bed. Hoping the FH/HB9AMO goes LOTW, has not happened yet for my 80M contact.
I heard a 4S7 clearly on 80M last night after seeing the spot.  He seemed to hear no one unfortunately, EU or NA, just kept calling CQ.

Something like that.

I worked TR8CA on 80 CW on 0318z tonight.  My LOTW QSL time stamp is 0350z.

For someone in such a relatively rare place, that's simply amazing turn-around.  If he somehow sees this, well done!

Some loggers, I think, can be set to auto upload to LOTW now in various ways.  Perhaps he is using one of those.

Regardless, the turn-around is fantastic.

Nice milestone with the DXCC Challenge, Lasse!

12 m should still be good for sporadic E, and you are fairly close to many entities to work on your 160 m. I would expect to be working into Sweden fairly regularly in the late summer mornings here. February and March seem best for 160 m to EU.

I'm still sneaking up on 2000 Challenge points, but might have to give in and send off for a few cards with those I've made many band contacts with, like JY9FC.

I had a nice opening to Southern Africa this afternoon on 20 meters.  I worked three ZSs, C91PA, and 3DA0TM. C91PA uploads to LoTW very quickly and one of the ZS stations has already used LoTW.

Within a few hours I had new flags from Mozambigue, which was most likely C91PA who I worked and is located in the capital of Maputo, and one from Gaborone, the capital of Botswana.  At 142 flags it's unusual to get one flag in a given day never mind two from Africa.  I'm glad those two hams from Africa who looked me up have access to the internet.

If I only look at EA9's in my log, it is pretty dismal. 50+ EA9 QSO's and only 2 LOTW confirmations (both EA9LZ).

If I expand to also ED9's it's not so bad. But those are mostly (only) contest activations so no WARC activity, and the newest ED9 confirmation I have is from 2012 so not much LOTW action from the ED9's lately either.

E70T  -- Some trouble over this one, but the card did arrive today.

How hard/rare is E7 from W7-land? From here on the East Coast E7 is easy and they're reliably on for every contest.

At same time I think about the W7-guys who run 100+ JA's on 160M in a 160M contest weekend, and I've only ever worked two JA's on 160M from east coast!

Not terribly hard, but as it chanced, this was the only QSO that I managed to confirm for the band-and-mode in question.  A quick count suggests about 25 in all since moving here.  

All's well that ends well.

A great example of what I was getting at.  The CE1TT QSO I really needed confirmed was in 2013.  Got the card long ago.  Even turned it in for credit.

Very happy to see the station on LOTW now, but "impatience" meant I spent money on QSLing that a more patient fellow could have avoided.

Chris, I sent him my QSL + $3 + SAE on December 23rd and 6 days later I received the LOTW confirmation. He may eventually upload the entire log to LOTW, but I didn't want to wait much longer since it was a new digital (#232) entity for me.

Marvin VE3VEE
Happy New Year Marvin!

I had a feeling you made a donation whereas I did not. I find quite a few only upload to LoTW if there is a donation.  I'm OK with waiting six months, or even a year, but after a year very little money will trickle in so why not just upload the whole log? This practice has become one of my pet peeves.   ???  Also, the LoTW policy is not typically spelled out precisely on QRZ which complicates things. For example, 8R1/AG6UT does not give his QSL policy on QRZ.

73,

I was randomly tuning across 12m last week when I heard a very loud RTTY signal. So loud I thought it might be a local, fired up WinWarbler, tuned in - and found it was VP8NO calling CQ. We had a nice QSO, and my logbook software (DXKeeper) said that Falklands was a new one for RTTY for me. LotW confirmation came through a few days later - thanks, Mike!

When I got my DXCC several years ago it was quite anti-climatic.  It was at that point I realized how many more I needed to go to work them all :D  All of a sudden the goal post just moved from 100 to 200, LOL.

I know of a ham who's putting up a yagi for 60m.

Marvin- did your SWR come back to normal?


Jonathan, yes, thanks for asking, the SWR went back to normal the following day. Rain or snow normally doesn't affect my SWR, it's only when there's A LOT of wet snow sitting on the antenna, or when the elements are enveloped in a layer of ice. It may happen once or twice during winter. When it happened to me for the first time, during the first winter after I set up my remote QTH, I worried my antenna might have been physically damaged. The remote QTH is over 100 miles from my home and it takes 3 hours to drive there... Since then I've installed a remote camera there so I can easily look at my antenna without having to drive there or asking someone to email me a photo...  ;D

OH0Z came through on LotW about 2 weeks after contact, for a new confirmation on 160M. I managed to find him before he was spotted, tuned across his freq a bit later and the pileup was huuuuge. With slower CW speeds on 160, and many people not being able to hear well on that band in any event, 160M pileups are right up there with DC Beltway traffic jams as my favorite things to avoid...

Congrats, I have not worked OH0 on 160M since 2013! Of course that was OH0Z too :-).

The "interesting" winter openings to Scandinavia have been fun this late-fall and winter.

80M is regularly open to parts of Scandinavia - I think the more northern parts? - each of my mornings before dawn.

15M and 20M are sometimes (always?) open to parts of Scandinavia in our late afternoon, when it's nearly midnight there.

Yeah, interestingly J70BH has me in their online log for 10M, but I don't have them in my log. I wonder if I worked them and forgot to log them, or maybe I worked a different station on/near their frequency. Would've been worth a mult to me in CQ WW if I had claimed it!!!

This really surprised me.  I also got a LoTW confirmation for my 160m contact with J70BH.  BUT I had thought Martti doesn't do LoTW ???  I had sent him a direct card request just before I got the LoTW confirmation :D

It would be really nice if Martti will start using LoTW on all of his activations.  That would save me wads of cash ;D

Thanks James.  It took me a while to get everything figured out on the hardware needed for 160m.  I went through several TX antennas and now I have a dedicated RX antenna which helps tremendously.  Believe me it's not an easy road to get to this point.  There was a lot of trials and tribulations.

My 160m confirmed total jumped up significantly recently as I had several EU openings in Dec. and Jan.  Prior to Dec. 2016 I only had one EU contact (E74AW) from Feb. 2016.  I have worked CU many times in contests but I haven't been able to confirm those contacts despite a great deal of effort using direct QSLs.  Figures.  And CU wasn't in the recent 160m contest.

I have a total of four contacts with CU on 160m.  Two with CR2X and two with CU2KG.  CU2KG's last LoTW upload was in 2012.  I guess 2012 was the year Martti abandoned LoTW.  I have sent Martti both buro and direct QSL cards with more than sufficient postage.  But so far no return QSL.  I guess Martti is too busy traveling and has fallen behind on his QSLs?  He must get a ton of QSLs as he now doesn't do LoTW anymore.

I'm at the very early stages of my 160m setup. I am just using my 100 foot dipole for now, which I know is far too short. My first plan for improvement is a receive antenna. I'm considering a k9ay antenna since it fits on a small lot... or.. if I can figure out how to get over the river.. I might sneak a beverage antenna in as there is a ton of unused / un travelled woods. For transmit I'll probably eventually put up an L. Lastly, I would want to build a 160m amp or change out my SB-200. I am hoping to get to Dayton this year and check out the new location.. so perhaps I'll be looking at some new shack / antenna additions :)

Very good James.  Just remember this.  On 160m there's no substitute for size.  If everything else is equal the bigger the better ;D  I would go for a beverage antenna if you can sneak one in.  You will have to consider wildlife damage if the area is wooded and the beverage is hung low.  By the way, the worst thing to happen to a 160m DXer is to have a RX antenna break and the DXer not knowing it.  Since you can't transmit into a dedicated RX antenna,  you cannot test a RX antenna other than by doing a physical inspection or a comprehensive RX test.  As me how I know :D

I am just using my 100 foot dipole for now, which I know is far too short.
If you tie your dipole's feedline together at ground level, and feed the feedline like a "vertical" or "Marconi T" against ground (better, ground+radials), you have a very nice antenna there.

I'm considering a k9ay antenna since it fits on a small lot
I am very happy with a small K9AY loop for receive.

Welcome to 160m.  It's a fun band.  What kind of TX and RX antennas do you have on 160m?

73,
Jonathan W6GX

Not much I'm afraid. I have a decent RX antenna, an RF-PRO-1B loop, but my vertical (33ft) is much too short. I was surprised my tuner was able to match at all. I then decided to surprise a local friend in the contest with a QSO, and when that went well...

I've been primarily focused on getting a better signal out on 80m, with some success. I may lengthen my current vertical to 43ft to get some better performance on 80 and perhaps that will help slightly on 160.

No offense but please get rid of the RF-PRO-1B loop ;D   You won't hear weak DX on the loop.  I have never owned one but my hunch is that the loop is very good if you have a severe local RFI that you need null out, but not very good if you generally are fighting against atmospheric QRN especially on 160m.  I think Bob K6UJ has one and maybe he can chime in.

You didn't say what type of vertical you have.  Since you also use the same antenna on 80m I assume you have a loading coil at the bottom.  Short verticals are OK as long as the loading coil is at the top rather than the bottom.  A lowly mounted coil means high current therefore high loss.  A highly mounted coil means low current and low loss.  The difference is significant and well documented in various publications.  The Cushcraft MA160V is a great antenna as it's top loaded.  Or if you have room for an inverted L that would be even a better antenna than the MA160V as the MA160V has a very narrow bandwidth due to its short length.

There are no commercially made and efficient top loaded duo-band 80m/160m verticals out there except the HyGain HyTower.  Prior to getting the HyTower I made a homebrewed 80m/160m vertical by using parts from a Cushcraft MA4080 and MA160.  It worked rather well since I also extended it to 55' tall.  But that antenna was lost in a windstorm just days prior to K1N.  It was too top-heavy as it had two coils and two capacity hats near the top.  While it was fun while I had it I later determined it wasn't practical for me as I live in a windy area.

You can homebrew an 80m/160m single vertical with active band switching using a high voltage vacuum relay and a very large common mode choke for the relay control line.  I have considered this option but later deemed it too complicated and outside of my homebrewing skills at the time.

Well, here in CO I hear just noise 99% of the time on my RX antenna (on the stuff I need anyways).  So a broken RX antenna is somewhat difficult to discern from having no antenna connected to the rig ;D

Very good James.  Just remember this.  On 160m there's no substitute for size.  If everything else is equal the bigger the better ;D  I would go for a beverage antenna if you can sneak one in.  You will have to consider wildlife damage if the area is wooded and the beverage is hung low.  By the way, the worst thing to happen to a 160m DXer is to have a RX antenna break and the DXer not knowing it.  Since you can't transmit into a dedicated RX antenna,  you cannot test a RX antenna other than by doing a physical inspection or a comprehensive RX test.  As me how I know :D

73,
Jonathan W6GX

Agreed, Jonathan. A beverage would be real nice. On the other side of the river behind my house are many acres of untouched land owned by the town next to me. It's a wooded flood plain so nothing will ever be built on it. While l'm sure I could not get permission to put anything there.. I could probably put something there and it would never be noticed because nobody goes back there. Like you said.. there is potential wildlife damage, and inspecting it isn't so easy as I have to lug a boat out there and cross the river (or go for a swim in the summer..). Also.. I have to get coax / cables across. A K9AY receive antenna I can probably squeeze in someplace in my back yard.. and is looking like the preferred option to try first. For TX.. The inverted L I would probably send the L out across the river because then at the most.. it's just a rope up in a tree on the other side of the river.

Sorry for the thread hijack  ::)

Two QSL cards in mail today:

ZC4DB - UK BASES ON CYPRUS - phone #295

SV2ASP/A - Mount Athos - digital #238. This was my 3rd QSO and 3rd QSL card from Monk Apollo in less than 9 months (SSB, CW and now RTTY). All 3 cards arrived in just under 30 days (SAE + $5). In the past, on a couple of occasions, I've heard about Monk Apollo's RTTY being impossible to read because of a strange speed. That actually was not true during my QSO. However, he was using REVERSE RTTY. So either switch your software mode from RTTY to REVERSE RTTY or on your TCVR switch LSB/USB.

Tony N5UD

Mobile?  1  DXCC  29 qsos, all USA. A vertical tuned sort of for 6m doesn't work very well.

From the house, 5 DXCC, with no real 6m antenna, or an amp that covers 6m. I use the internal tuner in the radio to make it happy feeding my T-8 log.

I have managed to work KH6 and S. Cooks Is. on 6m. Pure luck.

No I meant from the home. I have few mobile. I find that 6M is the real toughie for 100 from Texas. Likely much easier to do from EC these days what all with more worldwide 6M interest than say 25 years ago.

160M with good antennas at least is open to some place SR and SS during the winter.

It worked! 5A1AL LoTW confirmed this sunday (thanks to W5UE).

Just sent my LoTW request for 5A1AL to Randy W5UE a few days ago. Hope it still works for requests before Feb 10th 2017.

Wayne,

Thanks for the info. That's a huge improvement from just a few years ago. My first 5A1AL QSO needed to be confirmed via a paper QSL card which took well over a year to arrive. Now Abubaker uses LOTW and does uploads himself and OQRS is available, too.

Nice Catches... I heard OD5ZZ one morning with a good signal, but he never heard me.  :(

I just checked and we had a 40m SSB QSO a few weeks ago!

I just got a LOTW confirmation for my 15m SSB, OD5ZZ QSO earlier today. That was a new one for me!  :D


I heard him a few days ago and tried to work him, but he could not hear me even when no one else was calling and he was 57.

It was the same thing when I tried at first today... he was 57 but could not hear me (which is strange since I can pretty much work what I can hear on 15m -- he must have high noise or something). I tried for a while but no luck.

I came back later and suddenly he peaked 59 for just a second -- just long enough to make a QSO and then he dropped back to a 53 to 55!

That was another victory-lap worthy QSO! :-)

EDIT: And he just confirmed on QRZ.

Congratulations on Lebanon.

My first contact was with OD5NH back in 2003. I sent off a card immediately via regular mail, and got his card a few months later.

This turned out to be a minor miracle since it seemed that the world had a grudge against OD5NH for not responding to multiple QSL requests.

In another thread, several stations talked about working UK9AA on 80M this winter.  The only option for qsl'ing was a direct card to Uzbekistan, and I sent one out for my contact on January 18.  No results yet, but I would be very interested to know if anyone else has any luck getting their contact confirmed.  Sending green stamps to any entity with a "stan" on the end makes me nervous.

Thanks

Marvin & Zack,

Thanks for the flowers.

I ran cw at 100 watts to an OCF dipole up 30 feet and I wasn’t sure how difficult it would be to work and confirm 100 entities on 80.  I started to focus on 80 in 2015 so it took a little over 2 years to achieve.  I was pleasantly surprised that I did it without additional antennas or adding an amplifier.

Many thanks to all the DX operators who pulled my weak signals out of the noise.

As I recall there are quite a few ehammer that recently went past #100.  Big congrats to everyone here who made it to DXCC.  And best wishes to those who are active on this fantastic band.

8R1/AG6UT from last November confirmed by LOTW for a new band and a new mode confirmed.

This is no huge distance, nor is 8R rare, but for me LOTW confirmations for 8R are rare. Until 8R1/AG6UT I have not had a single 8R confirmation by LOTW in 5 years, not since 8R1PY in 2012.

CE0Y/W1MJ - EASTER ISLAND activity at the beginning of April is already in LOTW. Eliot operated QRP with only 5 watts into a vertical, but he was s-9 on my s-meter, an unbelievably strong signal. He operated his 5 Watt station from Anakena Beach on the north shore of the island and he says "the salt water made a huge difference".

This was surprising: I was looking through which countries I have confirmed on LOTW and I do not have any confirmations for Russia despite having worked them on 40, 20, 17, and 15m! I guess I have been working all of the wrong stations there  :)

But yet I have the small Russian country of Kalingrad confirmed on all three bands that I have worked them on (40, 20, and 15m)....

That's impressive, Larry!  I've been stuck at 196 for about a decade-- still need zones 18, 22, 23, and 24 on 80m.  So far have worked all mine on CW, except for one zone on 10m SSB.  I've not tried JT65 yet. 


Title: RE: LoTW / QSL Received
Post by: WO7R on April 29, 2017, 12:22:55 PM
JT65 has been a big difference maker for me.

I've worked a lot of my problem zones that way.  Zones 17, 24, 29 were all worked that way (29 I had CW, but the JT65 one confirmed).  I did manage 18, 19, 26, and 28 via CW.

Still, JT65 highly recommended.  As a bonus, most confirm promptly on eQSL, which is (as you no doubt know) the equivalent to LOTW for 5BWAZ purposes.

You do have to run a little higher power than you do on other HF bands, but it seems to be working out for me.  I've seen a fair amount of BY on 80, so that one is a particularly good one for you.

I've also done some of the 40m zones that way, but only after the fact.  If I still needed any, I would have probably been able to do quite a few (as judged by my recent success with JT65 on 30m).

I did zone 23 years ago with JT1CO who is still pretty active.

Good luck.

Post by: WO7R on April 29, 2017, 02:43:22 PM
Two more JT65 on 30m winners:

5Z4/DL2RMC
3D2TS

Confirmed almost as soon as I worked them (for which I thank both ops).  Who says JT65 is slow?  If you consider the total time between starting to work and hitting LOTW, these are among the fastest I have ever done!

I just received 4 bands from Charlie, VR2XMT, going back to 2011 and 2012.  I have more recent QSOs but he must not have uploaded those yet.

I did sent Charlie QSLs with Greenstamps for return postage on two separate occasions.  I have a considerable amount of LoTW credits from hams who only upload to those who went the OQRS route.  It could be VR2XMT is following that model and not uploading to all.  This is still a help to me because it means there are fewer QSLs I need to submit to a card checker when I get around to it again.

Cuba doesn't have a plethora of LoTW users which is normal for a 3rd World country.

Oddly the big-time contesters in Cuba often don't use LOTW.

But small-timers, the Cubans who only answer CQ's, are very good at LOTW.

VR2XMT LOTW for old (but not recent) QSOs received today.  None "younger" than three years old.  All LOTW contacts were direct QSLed before today's good news.

Nice to see.

His QRZ page still says "direct only" and I would take him at his word.

Perhaps so.  Roughly 1/3 of my Cuban QSOs, or at least 1/3 of recent ones, were uploaded to LOTW.

Interestingly, none of my T4 special prefixes (some of which were IOTA DXpeditions) have uploaded to LOTW.  Take that as you will.

But, in any case, for basic DXCC, and even band countries, just keep working Cubans.

My understanding is the T4 prefixes are not used by native Cubans, but by a small number of visiting foreigners mostly Russians visiting Cuba.

Correct, the Russian T4's usually do not use LOTW. And they often have very much louder signals than the non-visitors.

(not all T4's are Russians... T42US a counterexample!)

You must be working all of the right stations! CO2ER confirmed while my QSOs with CM2FRB, CM2XN, CM7OA, CO6HLP, CO6HZ, CO6LC, CO8LY, CO8RRM, CO8ZV, T40A, T46A, T46LC, and T48K have not....

ZA/OG1N on LOTW for this years WPX CW.

Now, Albania itself isn't so remarkable to be on the air, but what is remarkable is the low number of Albanian QSO's with LOTW confirmation.

Out of 38 Albania QSO's, spread among nearly two dozen activators, this one takes me to LOTW confirmation #7. 7 out 38 is pretty low.

To OG1N's credit, this is the second year in a row I worked him in WPX CW and now the second LOTW confirmation for Albania via him. That means's he's at 100% LOTW! Great job, OG1N!

Post by: WO7R on July 04, 2017, 02:52:13 PM
It was a good morning on JT65.  My friends did better than I did.  I had a shot at UX1UA and a couple of other Scandanavians, but I couldn't quite get it done.  Like a lot of Es openings on 6, it was only AZ as far as I could tell and not elsewhere, which is fortunate or we'd have been drowned out.  A lot of my buddies cashed in for the UX, most of the Scandanavians that were on.

JT65 is a real game changer on 6.  I am decoding stuff I would have thought impossible, such as SV, UA/UR, and a lot else.  Need to find time to improve my 6m station to get them, though.

I am still new to 6m DXing, but my friends who have been in AZ a long time (where DXCC is a real challenge) tell me that instead of "maybe" one opening a year, we now have two or three.

You guys in the central and eastern US really should be cashing in these days.

Just a note regarding 5A1AL's QSLing...

I've read on the DX cluster a few times about people not receiving his QSL cards. I had an SSB QSO with Abubaker recently. It was a new mode for me so I used the Clublog OQRS, paid the requested amount, but sent him a note to only upload to LOTW and NOT to send a paper QSL (I had two paper QSLs from him already).

Well, LOTW was uploaded shortly after, and even the paper QSL arrived yesterday - despite me telling him NOT to bother.  ;D

So, 5A1AL does seem to send QSL cards quite well.  ;D

Abubaker does not always upload a QSO to LoTW unless requested. Just email him if you want your QSO confirmed on LoTW. He absolutely does QSL, however I know from my own experience cards get lost both ways, which he obviously has no control over.

Ray,

Joe 7Q7BP is a silent key now. My last QSO with him was on March 25, 2017 at 2210z. The last QSO in his log was 31 minutes later.

G3SWH takes care of his QSLs and uploads.

Ray, I just got lucky. I heard him (ZS8Z) in a QSO with ZS1AFS. When they finished their "local" QSO, I called him and he was immediately in my log. Likely no one else called.

The CONDX during summer is not the best for that part of the world. During December/Januaray his signals will be much better. He will be in ZS8 till 2018.

I almost didn't get on for IOTA, but I had two significant achievements last night:

1: LA7GIA, not my first Norway on 80M by any means, but first QSO with Ken on 80M. Confirmed via LOTW this morning. Also worked LA4C during IOTA.

2: SX5R, my first ever QSO with Dodecanese on 80M. Confirmed by log match on Clublog this morning. You would think with me being on 80M all the time I'd have worked Dodecanese a zillion times before, but no, this was my first one.

Who would think that July would be such a great time to work Europe on 80M.

Worked and confirmed TI2CC - 17M phone - today, for yet another challenge counter.

(http://n3qe.org/1982.png)

I am now just 18 away from DXCC Challenge 2000 via only LOTW. I would like to think I can get to 2000 by the end of the year but it seems like an asymptotic curve! Yes I have some additional paper cards to push me over 2000 easy but am too lazy to get them checked.

Tnx Tim N3QE for 80m QSO and LoTW! It was fun on 40+80m towards US during the IOTA contest. I have recently installed a 80+40+30m full size vertical polarized delta loops, same 40+30m loops I brought with me to TN5E, and so far very pleased with the performance of the wires. I notice you're on 308 mixed , I am on 307 ...

With regards to LoTW - anyone know if S01WS provide LoTW anymore? I have enquired about a LoTW upload for my remaining Qs for a long time, as I already have twice of their QSL cards. But no answer from them! It's bad reputation when you do not even bother to answer enquirys, and do not offer free LoTW when their "customer" already have several cards.

All of my S01WS LOTW confirmations came a year or more after the QSO. And often a year or more after the paper card. The last one I have confirmed in LOTW is April 2015, and I have 8 QSO's since then which are confirmed by paper cards but not in LOTW.

The recent 5T5OK activity got me thinking about last November's operation by Vlad Bykov, 5T9VB.  I had worked him on several bands, but was especially interested in confirming a 12 meter RTTY contact with him, and had requested a QSL via Paypal.  I just wondered if anyone else has received a card from him yet for that operation.  Thanks

BG9XD card received via the W1 Bureau.  12 meter CW worked with a 2 element collinear at 35 feet.  Zone 23!

Vlad is a unique case.  He is constantly on the road, activating all kinds of things of various rareness, including IOTAs.

It can take a long time to get a QSL card from him, but so far, he has always delivered, often in bunches (but then again, I usually QSL in bunches).  You have to allow for the limited time he spends back home.

4 new band counters from 5T5OK confirmed in LOTW! Yes, I did OQRS a couple days ago. This is getting me very close to 2000 challenge counters confirmed in LOTW-only.

Mason, congrats on the MU confirmation. Don't worry about about the 5T. Some DXpeditions upload to LOTW first their OQRS requests, and later (sometimes even 6 months later) upload the entire log. You will receive it. It's just a matter of time.

Anyone have any suggestions on how to get a QSL card from either 8R1Z or 8R1AK? A year ago, I sent my QSL card to each, including SAE & $3, but no luck. They are the only ones I have worked on SSB. I've got 8R confirmed on CW and digi, but I'd like a confirmation on SSB, too.  ;D

The only 8R LOTW confirmations's I've gotten, were 8R1/AG6UT (last year) and 8R1PY (a 2012 DXpedition by PY's). My advice is to just be patient until another reliably-QSL'ing-visitor goes there.

Tim and Obie,

Thanks for the feedback. Yes, I wish someone would go to 8R-land. Perhaps during the upcoming CQ WW DX SSB.

The postal theft is likely to blame. I just got an idea. I'll wait two more months, and then at the beginning of December I will send my QSL + SAE + $3 inside a thick envelope with a X-mas card. It will not look like an envelope from a ham, it may have a better chance of reaching the destination.  ;D

The postal theft is likely to blame.

 I flew to Guyana earlier this year for a planned 30 day DXpedition. I was told being issued the 8R1/KC0W license would be issued "upon arrival". This was after roughly 3 months of email exchanges with the Guyanese Ministry of Public Telecommunications. They requested the same licensing form be submitted over & over & over again to a different person every time as well. They are truly a bunch of government officials crazier than a bunch of $hithouse rats...........Long story short I was never issued the license. This was after spending thousands of dollars flying to Guyana from Equatorial Guinea & staying in Georgetown, Guyana for almost 2 weeks. If anyone else wants to try getting licensed for 8R land I wish you the best of luck!!!


 Regarding mail theft:

 I mailed numerous packages to the USA & Europe while in Guyana. Every single one of them reached their intended recipient just fine. Going to the main post office in Georgetown is an experience everyone should have at least once in their lifetime..............This DXing stuff ain't always easy.  :)

Over the years I lost a lot of money to 8R postal workers.  After so much trouble I finally have 10-80m confirmed on three modes on 8R.  It took a lot of contacts and a few that uploaded to LoTW.  I'm so glad to get 8R off of my list.

According to my DXCC records I got my SSB contact with 8R1 way back in 1986 when I was running QRP SSB from a 2nd floor apartment. If you check the historical records 1986 was a time of very poor sunspot activity, even worse than current conditions. So, even though I didn't know it back then, I worked a pretty good DX contact from a very compromised station at the bottom of the Sunspot cycle.

Obie, I'm a longtime LOTW user but not much of an IOTA chaser.

I have a question about tracking IOTA's with LOTW. Is there a LOTW report that will tell you about new IOTA's confirmed, or do you click on each QSO to learn which IOTA it is, or do you download LOTW QSL's to a logging program that tracks new IOTA confirmations for you?



Title: RE: LoTW / QSL Received
Post by: N5VYS on October 04, 2017, 07:58:44 AM
1. Not to my knowledge Tim.

2. Yes, I click on each one.

3.Yes, I download to my logging program.

Maybe someone else more information on this subject then I have!

Title: RE: LoTW / QSL Received
Post by: WO7R on October 04, 2017, 08:25:34 PM
Well, I have some Python scripts that can post-process the LOTW downloads.  These, in turn, can be imported into a spreadsheet.  I've used it to locate IOTAs.

Obviously, that's not a solution for everyone.  The LOTW report, with its multiple lines per record, is particularly resistant to simple, "everyone can do it" post-processing, such as directly importing into spreadsheets.

I don't really know of another way.  If it isn't on their own queries, you basically are going to struggle.

It looks like LOTW is suffering some sort of outage.

If I read the queue status correctly, it shows only a handful of logs, and maybe none at all, have been processed in the last several hours.

I have a set of Perl scripts for parsing/generating ADIF, and a MySQL database that integrates my log with LOTW and Clublog. Also do QSL response printing etc.

All that said - I do not currently pay any attention to the IOTA fields although a random sample of ADIF downloads from LOTW makes it look like they are often usefully correct.

I am a big supporter of ADIF but I can see, that for many purposes maybe a CSV file would be easier for folks to process and pivot in a spreadsheet.

I am a big supporter of ADIF

In this case, the utility of a standard, any standard, far exceeds the virtues of the standard itself.  ADIF is useful, except when it is a pain, which fortunately isn't often, but really painful when it is.

ADIF is pretty good for interchange, but it drastically under-specifies the semantics.  To my knowledge and understanding, there is no, official, documented set of minimum fields to define a minimal QSO.  Every time you deal with a new source, it usually works, but it is sometimes an adventure to discover what fields they require and what they use.

I deal routinely with:  N1MM+, MixW2, WSJT-X, eQSL, GlobalQSL, LOTW, DXCC On-line, Clublog, RSBGIOTA at least and they all have slightly different requirements and semantic understanding of the fields.  Normally, these differences don't matter, but once in a while, I get "bit" and I have to do something, usually write a little code.

I find it particularly difficult, for instance, to import things created under the "wrong" logger into N1MM+.  You could argue that N1MM commendably tries to use the defined fields (e.g. CQZ under the various CQ WW contests), but the other logger(s) I use tend to define exchange fields as. . .exchange fields and put the zone information there.  It can be an adventure to get the result you are looking for when you import from other sources.

Some sources I deal with use the COMMENTS field; others ignore it and use NOTES for the same purpose.  You would think they would map one to the other even if they, themselves, only use one of the two (especially when both are not present), but. . .nope.  Similarly, you would think that providing a FREQ field would implicitly have the receiver create the missing BAND entry if only FREQ was provided, but some do and some don't.

Moreover, the use of TIME_ON as the "most important" of TIME_ON versus TIME_OFF is entirely unofficial, but widely observed.  Fortunately for that one, I haven't seen an exception yet.  But, give it time.

There just isn't enough semantic agreement and, at this late date, probably cannot be.  Getting programmers to agree on anything is like herding cats.

Still, it would be interesting to see someone take a stab at a "strict" mode (where the semantics were more rigidly defined, including things like "minimum QSO fields") and see if it could get anywhere in terms of adoption.  I'm guessing:  No.

This is a bigger deal than it looks, probably.   I have a surprising number of folks whose logging information is split between N1MM+ and at least one other primary logger.  I also notice that very few try and integrate all those sources into one.  It is fairly easy to see why -- if you're not a programmer, even a rare headache is enough to defeat you.

As for LOTW itself, it probably would be useful to have a reporting mode where there was a CSV (probably TAB separated) produced with the usual header entry on top.  That would make it easy for non-programmers to dump the results into a spreadsheet.  That would allow users to deal with all sorts of things that the LOTW folks haven't anticipated (such as finding IOTA), some of which would and probably should not ever make it to explicit LOTW support.  Second best would be a mode where all ADIF fields were provided whether they have content or not.  Some canned Linux scripts could then manipulate the result into a CSV and a lot of folks could use them cookbook style.

Very likely they have only so far, uploaded for contributors/OQRS-direct-with-$'ers. They will do a upload of all QSO's in 6 months.

Look at their QSI instruction page https://www.cdxp.cz/?page_id=59 and notice the two priorities I highlight below. This is a common QSL model the past few years for many dxpeditions:

Quote
1. OQRS – direct QSO to LOTW send every month

4. Lotw, Eqsl.cc – upload all qso  6 months

Also note, that you can go to http://www.clublog.org/charts/?c=5T5OK and begin the OQRS process to check that you are in the log with matching times/dates.

I myself would be glad to skip the direct card and let the Expedition get the extra few dollars that it cost in postage to send it to me. As long as I get the LOTW credit quicker. If they could send me the card via buro that would be nice but I'm not going to insist on it. I would feel better about it too because then I would know that all of my donation went to help the DXpedition and not to postage/printing costs.

Some DXpedition organizers that have their own OQRS system have this as an option (donate electronically, get fast LOTW upload, paperless, more money to the DXpedition) but I don't think it exists in Clublog yet.

It think it would be a welcome feature, if implemented by Clublog, too. Many of us don't really care much about paper QSLs and an LOTW-ONLY option would leave a bit extra in the pocket of the DXpedition.

Agreed.. for the most part I am only looking for band-fills these days from most dxpeditions, so a quick LoTW confirm would be great for my donation. They can send a paper card via the bureau if they want. The only time I really care about paper QSL's from a DXpedition is for an ATNO.. those I prefer direct.

Yes, a friend of mine (OM3IM) just sent me an email saying the same thing! He just received an LOTW confirmation for a Heard Island QSO with VK0IR from 20 years ago, 1997 January 20.  ;D

Again, nothing rare, but the P40EU and PJ4/NT5V expedition just uploaded to LOTW. I worked P40EU on 10m and PJ4/NT5V on 20,17,15,12,10m. Also, got a LOTW confirmation from ER1MM on 17m. Moldova has been quite elusive for me, but they had a big signal on 17m the other day!

ER1MM was a new country confirmation and my PJ4/NT5V 12m QSO was a new band-fill  ;)

I guess I'll have to wait another 5 months for 5T5OK to get confirmed  ;D

It think it would be a welcome feature, if implemented by Clublog, too. Many of us don't really care much about paper QSLs and an LOTW-ONLY option would leave a bit extra in the pocket of the DXpedition.

A more generalized feature that is nearly already there is to have immediate LOTW upload followed by "buro" card.  That would cover more cases without cluttering the interface with a lot of options.  

A major DXpedition sending the buro cards, once, direct to the actual "buros" would not be a major burden if they were compensated for the ones made possible by this option.  It might even help pay for the 'normal' buro stuff.  Thus, even if the members were not members of their nation's ARRL equivalent, they could still manage this.  And, the added cost for the card would not be all that great.  Maybe 10 or 20 cents for the card, presuming it wasn't donated, plus maybe another 10 US cents for the pro-rated mailing cost.

Those that want an eventual 'buro' card are served, those who are indifferent to buro cards won't mind much, the sponsors of the DXpedition get their sponshorship, via the card, delivered a bit more widely.

VI6BLT50 confirmed our QSO from last year on 20m SSB on LOTW. He was near Perth, Australia, and Perth is the furthest city away from my QTH. Literally the other side of the world!! Not only that, but he was Long Path, and I was using a non-resonate dipole at 20 feet, so I was probably putting out less that 50 watts. Pretty amazing!

Even though I've had many 40M QSO's with VU, this is the first one ever uploaded by the VU to LOTW. This brings my LOTW-Only Challenge count to 1999, one away from the goal of 2000 LOTW-only I set for myself several years ago!

It was dang confusing, one dxpedition, one call, two DXCC's. IIRC the French Polynesia operations were actually first (or was it more complicated like in the middle?) I am really looking forward to a lot of French Polynesia band fills on LOTW!!!

Yes, they were QRV from FO/P in June, then FO/M in July, then again FO/P in August all under the same TX5EG call sign.  ;D

That is a formidable accomplishment!  Congratulations!

Curious, though.  How do you manage it?  Do you only call stations known to LOTW?  Do you call everyone and simply not send any cards?  (In the latter case, while it may be in the one percent range overall, I have noticed some stations "relent" and do LOTW unannounced, albeit sometimes years later).

How, in other words, does going LOTW only change how you chase DX?

Now at 235 worked, 223 confirmed on 80M.

Every year I enter Marathon in 80M category. Just in CY2017 I am up to 138 worked on 80M.

Funny, how if your only antenna is an 80M dipole, you can do pretty good in the 80M category :-)

I saw you called out during the contest (forget which band), but I was busy running.   

I'll have to check how many LOTW QSLs I got from the contest.   I usually don't upload that quickly, but I figured out a way to do it quickly, which makes it much easier.   

Nice score, BTW!

Interesting on the 10 versus 15 bucks.  I wonder how many would be tempted to take the cards via the "buro" for 10 with LOTW immediate?  I assume you can make a standard "buro" request after sending the 10 bucks and get the card back. . .eventually.

Steve, the percentage of the confirmed QSOs should be much higher, probably closer to 50%.

In my experience, Steve should not expect an overall 50% confirmation on a log going back 18 years.

Since being licensed in January 1990, I have logged 24,538 QSOs in CW, Phone, RTTY, PSK, Pactor, and FT8. My overall LoTW confirmation rate is 27%. Dividing my log into three 9-year intervals and determining the LoTW confirmation rate for each interval reveals that confirmation rate is inversely proportional to age:

1990-1999: 11%

1999-2008: 28%

2008-2017: 48%

Steve's overall 33% confirmation rate for QSOs made since 2001 is consistent with this pattern.


There is another factor: digital mode ops are more likely to QSL via LoTW because they are more likely to use a computer for logging; from my entire log:

Phone: 19%

CW: 27%

Digital: 37%

Thus the higher the percentage of digital mode QSOs you've logged, the higher your LoTW confirmation rate will likely be.


Slicing and dicing the digital modes shows both of these factors at work:

Pactor: 0%

PSK: 33%

RTTY: 38%

FT8: 74%

All FT8 QSOs were made since July, so their confirmation rate is driven by both their recency and their high probability of computer logging.

@N3QE,
hi my good CW  and contest friend…
Yes LOTW was easy for me because of using Clublog before I only had to push one button and all my QSOs were exported from Clublog to LOTW. great.
Sorry for our missing QSOs I think its me having the bad ears…

If his logs go back to 2001, his match rate should not be so high.  LOTW was insignificant until 2004 and took a while to ramp up, too.  A lot of folks have not bothered to go back to QSO number one (those may be on paper or otherwise hard to access) and in their individual cases, decided to upload from whatever date they registered.

I see a lot of old DX QSLs from UA4WHX uploaded to Clublog.

So, at least you can tell if you are confirmed.  I don't recall if this was so before.  If it was, it means that he merely re-uploaded a lot of them.  If not, this is news.  Anyway, you might check your "matching" tab in Clublog, sorted by QSO Match date.  Might be some good news for you.

I now need to work on 160m. Contests helped a lot with 80m, but the largest impediment was my hours. Having a job which required alarm clock settings of 0330 and 0430 local time means not many late nights available for catching those 80m openings. I have over 100 confirmed on 30m, 12m, and 17m as well, so those endorsements will be added after the 5BDXCC application. Current standing is at 326 worked, 326 confirmed.

You know, just a year ago I was griping myself in this thread that I didn't have Cuba confirmed on phone via LOTW. See here: https://www.eham.net/ehamforum/smf/index.php?action=printpage;topic=108746.0

Since then, I've figured out, the big Cuban stations that CQ a lot on phone, tend not to be LOTW users. But the little Cuban stations that respond to CQ's, they do tend to be LOTW users. This is an interesting mix.

It isn't just Cuba.  There are a bunch of countries where the big stations aren't on LoTW.  And small stations that QSL promptly via LoTW if you can dig them out of the noise for a QSO.

Isn't it always?  It's not just the 75 bucks or so.  Compared to what I shelled out to get there, it's a relatively minor concern (unless the award just doesn't excite me in the end).

No, the headache also (at least for me) is finding someplace to put it.  And, for what?  So I can show it to my ham buddies?  They already know.

(http://n3qe.org/a71.png)

The only reason I found out about him being on the air, was a manually entered cluster spot. I still do not have any automation for alerting me of bandfill opportunities via FT8.

I had actually been in A71AM's log in the past on 80M for RTTY contests but somehow I did not put the QSO in my log. I think I mighta busted the call and put it in as TF1AM? Who is in my log as an uncomfirmed 80M RTTY contact.

I think I saw WO7R calling him too but WO7R was in the wrong odd/even phase.

You saw correctly.  I tried a few of the "other phase" because someone showed up calling on the phase that A71AM was actually in.  Copy was intermittent and I have seen rare DX switch polarities before -- ugh -- so I tried a few the other way just to see if that rare but nasty thing happened.  I discovered I wasted some valuable time.

On the plus side, if he shows up again soon, I was hearing him as much as a half hour after his sunrise.

I need to get myself a fancier QSL card when I use up the basic ones I have now...

73 de KM4SII - Mason

What you really want to consider, Mason, is having one QSL for your direct cards and another for your "buro" cards.

You will find out, if you have not already, that some guys from JA and DL land QSL everything.  If you want to be a nice guy and QSL anyway (who knows, maybe they are county hunters and need your card after all), then you simply want an inexpensive card.  I print such cards myself for 5 cents a card, perhaps less, on my laser printer.  You can also get them made to order with a little care at your local Office Max or Staples or whatever.  If you go strictly black and white (or black, white, and grey scale picture) nothing is cheaper.  You can get four cards to a page if you work on it.  The only trick is to deal with the margins.  The secret is to have about a 1/4 inch border around the cards, as printed, and then have your image as supplied remove that 1/4 inch around the perimeter.  Then tell them to print it as-is.  They'll charge you a small fee to cut the cards.   Quantities?  Whatever you want.  Good way to print some emergency cards, too.

For card stock, just provide 67 pound vellum (145 grams per square meter) or have Office Max provide it and you will have, by far, the cheapest mailing rate for your outgoing "buro" cards.  This even can swamp the cost of the card itself thanks to the 1.15 per ounce the US Outgoing buro now charges.  You want to get at least 15 cards to the ounce.  Not 10.  The similar 65 pound card stock is OK, but it is more like 175 grams per square meter.  The US system for weight of paper is nuts -- always find the metric measurement, which is generally given nowadays.

Or, use Global QSL (then they will provide full sized color cards and thickness/weight becomes their problem).

For direct, you can then do what you want.  I find that UX5UO provides very nice cards for a very competitive price.  The minimum order is 1000 cards, but as you are starting out, that's just not a problem.  Just make sure you can place and address label over your address if you move before you use them up.  It is the address that is actually critical for any award, including WAZ.  Hey, your card might be used sometimes!

I posted this in another thread, but I thought I would post it here as well since this thread is all about LOTW and QSL confirmations.

My personal LOTW stats:

- 2014 - 36.83% of my 3022 QSOs confirmed via LOTW to date
- 2015 - 48.70% of my 4854 QSOs confirmed via LOTW to date
- 2016 - 56.54% of my 4824 QSOs confirmed via LOTW to date
- 2017 - 48.47% of my 4469 QSOs confirmed via LOTW to date, but it's still too early. It's not yet the end of this year and most of my QSOs were made in the last two months in the two CQWW contests. A lot more LOTW confirmations to come.

A couple of days ago, I went to see my local DXCC QSL card checker. I had 15 cards to check. The process is easy. I entered the 15 QSOs to an online form, pay online, and submit the application online. Then I visit the QSL card checker who then uses snail mail to send a signed list of my QSOs to ARRL HQ. I wonder why snail mail has to be used here, why couldn't the QSL card checker also simply do his part of the work online. Does anyone know? If nothing else, it would lighten the workload of all the overworked postal workers now during this busy holiday season.  ;D

I get the impression, that the check of rarer callsigns who have never gotten LOTW certs against the "approved list" is still handled manually, and it's handled on paper at the point where the paper form arrives and is processed at the DXCC desk.

I think you're right it could be improved such that the list is transmitted electronically to DXCC desk at HQ instead of by paper, and the DXCC desk could do those final checks based on the electronic submission.

I still get the impression the approved list for older historic operations is maintained on paper records and has never been fully automated. And that these final checks can be rather complicated (e.g. "something is wrong, XX1XX was never on 160M according to our notes") in ways that may not be easy to automate.

Yes, the application and the QSL list that people submit online could be then made accessible to the QSL card checker who would then do his work online instead of on paper. We would save a few days waiting for the snail mail to arrive to ARRL.  ;D

That would still not require anything to be mailed in.  Unless Newington decides to ask for the cards, if you use the process cited, the only paper that is needful is the one the league, itself, demands to be mailed in.

You've already sent them all the records, in question, electronically.  The checker has certified the cards.  The results could be sent via some sort of secure web-based process, from the checker, but aren't.  If some QSO in the mix is on the questionable side, having it also on paper is no magic bullet.

The reason it is as it is probably has to do with how the league processes things and the fact that you are still allowed to send in wholly paper applications that were not entered into any computer to start with.  In the case, all the league sees is paper.  This might unify the processing, mildly.

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.

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.

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?

ZC4A LotW confirmation for a recent 80M CW QSO - new band marker.

It was kind of a marginal QSO - he came back to me, I sent the exchange, he seemed to send TU W4ML, so I kept sending and he sent W4ML again, so I started to chase again - as he sent CQ, the policeman started up on his freq, but then I swore I heard him send K3TN K3TN TU, so I did a WFWL, hoping he just had a momentary slip-up with his function keys!

V31VP is the call of a friend of mine who'd invited me down to operate WPX RTTY. It was my first time there so you likely worked him.

If you go to his QRZ page he has a neat tool where you can put in your call and play audio that was recorded for your QSO. Interesting to hear what one sounds like on the other end...

Got a confirmation from him too... my first OX station on LOTW! (20m, PSK31... one of my few PSK QSOs)

Oh and thanks for the QSO in WPX RTTY, Obie -- I recognized your call...  :)

Thanks Mason, for the contact and the point...I also recognized your call. I did not have the time to personalize our contact.

Some have suggested that Cuba can be tough to "get" in LOTW.

I am happy to report that a very active station, CO8LY, just uploaded a bunch of matches going all the way back to 2007 in my case.  It may be that some of them were uploaded before, can't remember (LOTW can "refresh" a match if you resubmit it).  This was only about half of my QSOs.  I'm quite sure the rest are good as he is always loud here.  So, I don't follow the rationale and, perhaps, I don't have to.  It may be he LOTW QSLs only the first band or first mode you work.  In any case, he has QSLed the ones I care about (thank you!).

It looks like we may see a lot more LOTW from this quarter in the future.

CO8LY just recently started uploading to LOTW, so the confirmations are slowly trickling in. He is very active so it may take a while for him to get all of his logs uploaded to LOTW. But it's good to see Cuba's probably most active station uploading!

Somehow, I found this on Facebook.  I assume this is legitimate.  If it is (and I don't know why it would not be) remember that not all of us grew up speaking English from the cradle:

Dear friends

To application of many hams I have ascended to the Lotw more 500 thousand QSO and
little by little I will put other 400 thousand qso until arriving to almost a million
of QSO from 1999 up to 2017, I wait to have pleased the friends
that they needed to confirm my country in the Lotw.

Regrettably I don't see him any objective to continue putting
my QSO in the Lotw because everything is statistical digital and I never can
to have the qsl card in my hands, also hill a lot of money to request an awards

It is my personal opinion, in these moments I have confirmed 324 countries
with all the QSL card in my hands that makes me feel very happy.

All the QSO starting from January 1 2018 will only be confirmed
via direct to my manager EA7ADH, as always we have made and I have completed

There are still plenty of hams that feel the same way - they will only do physical QSLing because they like receiving the cards. But, direct only can be pretty expensive for the requestors - it certainly is not the way to receive the most cards - accepting QSLs via the buro will get more responses, but fewer greenstamps!

I reply to all my incoming buro cards - probably 70% of them I've already received the LotW confirmation, so they are doing both. Doing both LotW (which costs nothing to upload) and the buro (which does have a cost to both upload and download) gets them the best of both worlds.

Looks like another very active station has decided to join LoTW.  I received LoTW confirmations for all nine of my QSOs with Franko, 9A7JCY.  Dates were from Sept. of 2011 to March 21st of this year when we worked on FT8.

I wonder if the explosion of use with FT8 is helping to boost use of LoTW?  It seems like about once a week I get a bunch of LoTW QSLs from some very active station new to LoTW.

Possible.  Since there is a logger of sorts, including .ADI, built-in, it is easy enough to upload at least the FT8 QSOs.

I discovered, at a club meeting where we chatted about it, that many hams (maybe most) do not have a single way of logging things.  They may have LOG4OM for CW, N1MM+ for contesting, and even paper for casual QSOs.  It's all over the map.  How they integrate this to keep track of DXCC is, for these hams anyway, an interesting question.

I also have learned, by monitoring how consumer computing works, that anything that increase so-called friction, tends to reduce participation.  We see it in LOTW's security architecture.  We could be seeing it here as well in the other direction.  I wouldn't be surprised to see, in some cases, someone uploading the FT8 QSOs and nothing else.

But, it could also be just that little bit of added impetus/convenience that pulls someone over the line.

Maybe the ARRL's grid chase, which requires LOTW, is having an effect as well.

The other thing we may be seeing is just that LOTW continues to make the slow, steady advance visible in what public numbers we have and in our own increasing match rates.

Did you ask why they opt to make things so complicated?  After a contest I just export the ADIF file into my main logging program so that all QSOs are in one log.  For a while, after returning to the hobby, I kept both a written log and computer log but once I got into the habit of backing up my log religiously I stopped entering all but my new countries and new bands into the paper log. Eventually, I ceased all paper logging.  Now, I just have one big electronic log.  Seems like the simplest method to me.

No, this came out of an "icebreaker" style question we often ask at the start of a club meeting.  So, there were as many responses as we had hams present.

The point is not to lecture these folks on the superiority of your scheme or even mine.  It is to notice that people's ham life grows out of long experience and may not be ideal or at least anything like what you would do.

People fall into habits and a lot of these just aren't important enough to them to break, no matter how strange they may sound to you or me.

One cannot simply assume that "everyone" does a single sort of logging.  Going by my ham club, at least, that just isn't reality.  The reasoning is probably as individual as the ham in question.  I'd say more had multiple logging schemes than not.

After a contest I just export the ADIF file into my main logging program so that all QSOs are in one log.

I just export all my logs (from N1MM, WSJT, whatever) into LOTW so that all my QSO's are in one log -  my log on LOTW. This covers my activity since 2007 when I got back into the hobby.

Now the LOTW ADIF (both QSO and electronic QSL information) merged into a database I have at home, and in that I do keep track of paper QSL's. And then that is sent to Clublog. But those are just frills. The real consolidation for me is happening at LOTW.

I do have a bunch of old paper logs from when I was a kid, back in the 70's and 80's and bunch of old paper QSL's (some but not much DX) from those days too, but those are hopeless basket cases.

Title: RE: LoTW / QSL Received
Post by: WO7R on March 09, 2018, 02:18:53 PM
N3QE reminds me of something semi-related.

There used to be a non-standard query.  You could sign on and then enter this magic URL and it would give you an LOTW report that included the available information on your paper DXCC records that were approved as well as LOTW as an ADIF.  It could be used as a kinda sorta "if all else fails" backup to one's log.  Not everything, perhaps, but at least "the QSOs that count".

A friend of mine is looking to go to electronic logging, but would like to extract the existing DXCC records (all paper submissions over the years) to get a head start on "the QSOs that count".  He doesn't have any LOTW yet, but after he signs up, he wants to do this to get his log populated with the "body of work" he has already been credited for.

I looked around for this magic string and could not find it.  The references I do find seem to discuss a process that screen-scrapes the various awards displays, which is (one presumes) either tedious, not as good, or both.  In any case, I understand how that old query worked.

Was support for this query withdrawn?  If not, where can I find it.  I can't find it on this site and I know it was posted many times over the years.

I got XT2MAX confirmed on LOTW within an hour after the QSO. 

If you check Max's website, he will not accept paper QSL's, even you send him an SASE, so LOTW or eQSL is your only shot at confirmation.

I got only one of my Z6 QSOs confirmed as of last evening, when I last looked.

The site is really sluggish this morning, so I don't know if the rest have appeared yet.

Update:  Site finally came up and the rest are there. 

Never had that kind of thing before.  Must have somehow caught them during the upload last night.

Recent LOTW also includes:  5T5OK, 9W8DEN, XT2MAX, TN5R, and 9G5AR.

Title: RE: LoTW / QSL Received
Post by: WO7R on April 09, 2018, 09:15:51 PM
The other thing you can try, Mason, is  simply waiting a bit before QSLing.

1.  You might work the same station on another band, a great cost reduction when it happens.
2.  You might find the station joins LOTW after a little while.
3.  You might work someone else that does do LOTW.
4.  In this specific case, you might get clearer instructions on how to do a direct QSL.

In situations such as yours, I find waiting about a calendar quarter after the QSO costs me nothing and often gains me quite a bit.  You might not realize it yet, but UN is relatively common and so you give yourself a chance to confirm either more cheaply or more certainly.

I have been licensed 1988 but only have my logs since 2009 on LOTW.  When LOTW started supporting WAZ I decided to look at my old paper logs for certain zones  and I found three DXCC entities that I had logged and might be able to qsl for ATNOs.

I got in touch with Dave, NN1N, the manager for AH3C, and he graciously did a manual upload of my qso to LOTW and sent me a jpg of my qso in the log.  He said that there are over 120,000 qso’s on paper logs for AH3C!

YS1CJA confirmed our 20m FT8 QSO in the QRZ logbook. Not LOTW unfortunately, but my first confirmation of any sorts out of El Salvador. For some reason activity is quite low from there as compared to other neighboring countries like Belize, Honduras, and Guatemala.

Here's just a little of what the CIA Factbook says about El Salvador:


Background:
El Salvador achieved independence from Spain in 1821 and from the Central American Federation in 1839. A 12-year civil war, which cost about 75,000 lives, was brought to a close in 1992 when the government and leftist rebels signed a treaty that provided for military and political reforms. El Salvador is beset by one of the world’s highest homicide rates and pervasive criminal gangs.

My only confirmed contacts also seem to be dxpeditions to El Salvador.

HU2DX - DL-OK-YS DXpedition in 2012
YS1G - UK DX-pedition in 2009
HU1A - 2003 - no longer listed in QRZ, could have been Hrane, YT1AD.

Awesome Vince!!! I wish 3A/I1YRL would use LOTW as he is the only Monaco station in my log. I may resort to good 'ol fashioned snail-mail for him  :)

Just looked and I still have a number of EU left to work over here: 1A, 4U, JW/B, JX, OJ0, OY, R1F, SV/A, and TA1 which are fairly rare-ish, but I am ashamed to say I have yet to work San Marino, and Crete of all places!  :o  Have often heard SV9 on FT8, but every time I call they have disappeared. I guess I just have been ignoring them because they are on the air ALL the time. How can one have 180 DXCCs but not Crete?  ;D Time to fix that problem! But at least I have some of the hard-ish ones in the log like Monaco, The Vatican, Kosovo, Svalbard and such.

Folks, I have a question about the QSL practices of S01WS from Western Sahara.
They claim not to LoTW confirm you unless you pay them via OQRS for a direct QSL card.
How common is this sort of thing?
It seems to me that it costs nothing for someone to upload to loTW... in fact, its usually done automatically.
I just want to know how it went for other people who got QSLs from S01WS.

S01WS from Western Sahara  -  How common is this sort of thing?

I just want to know how it went for other people who got QSLs from S01WS.

On the S01WS QSL request Clublog page: "YOU ARE HELPING TO MAINTAIN SAHRAWI RADIO CLUB"

I worked them on 9 bands, made three Clublog submissions (2 in 2016, 1 in 2017), plus donated a small bit extra to help out when they lost some antennas. They need money just to keep the station on the air and operating... everything from equipment & antennas to the building it is housed in. I believe economic factors in the country are such that they need outside support to keep ham radio going there; private stations would be a luxury.

The logs go to a station in Spain and the QSL cards are mailed from there... (I believe the LotW is uploaded from there as well.)  It may not be 'common practice' overall in the DX world, but I think it's safe to say, the plan is to simply keep a bit of funds flowing in to keep things running. (IMHO, not unlike a DXpedition doing early LotW uploads for those that request direct QSLs.) Bottom line, I don't think it's about some QSL manager getting rich, if that is what you were wondering.  :)

That mostly answers my questions, thank you.
o they automatically upload you to LoTW when they receive payment for the QSL direct card? I noticed on the clublog OQRS page, there was no option to request LoTW so I hope it is automatic. My primary QSL method is LoTW, so while I will certainly enjoy the card very much, I also want that LoTW confirmation!

Thanks for the info.

My pleasure, glad to help. - If memory serves, yes, just request the cards (might wait until you get 4 QSOs, same price) and the LotW will come when the manager 'gets around to it'. In 2017, Paypal shows I put in my OQRS the same day I worked them on 160m and the LotW QSL date shows about 2 & 1/2 weeks later.   Good luck!!!

EDIT: Seems to me on at least one of those submissions, the QSL cards arrived by mail before the LotW was uploaded... so be patient.  ;)

Fantastic news. I may just have to jump the gun and get the confirmation for 40m CW, regardless of the money savings that I would have if I waited until I had 4 QSLs I needed... it's my first contact with an African station so I am pretty excited about it. Thanks for the help, again.

S01WS is a bit of a special case.

It used to be quite rare.  Now it is relatively easy precisely because this station exists and is quite active.  If it ceased, it would be come difficult again.  Maybe very difficult.

I have QSLed them several times before they went to LOTW.  I don't begrudge them a little extra fundraising.

How "the rest of us", sitting in the comforts of home, fund those stations that are in rare and difficult places (including war zones of varying intensity or places where corruption is a way of life) is something you will have to decide upon as you embark on your DXing career.

And, don't let anyone tell you it "must" be thus and so.  There are a million opinions on how the DX game is to be played.  Listen, learn, make up your own mind.

No, I got the card years ago and claimed it years ago.

LOTW didn't even exist that far back.  But, even if it had, for a long time, the idea of getting "all of your confirmations from LOTW" would have been a bad joke.  Until at least 2009 perhaps.  Even today, direct is about 1/4 of my confirmations.  Those that do better have my admiration.  Me, I want credit in my lifetime.

I have no idea why they finally uploaded.  It's nice, I suppose, that they did since the log now can "never be closed".  That's a good thing.  But, beyond what is probably literally a handful of stragglers who came to DXing late, nobody is going to get much out of it.

It's a curiosity for most of us.

I noticed I got AH3C/KH5J Palmyra confirmed on LoTW after some 26 years....
Guess it was waiting for me, I got round to upload old QSO's at that time :) But I still need Johnston Isl.

BTW it may very well be ARRL who made logs availabe to LoTW! I was hunting some old cards, and finally tracked down the current caretaker of VP8SSI, who said the logs were about to be shipped to ARRL and in a few years time will be uploaded to LoTW.

OH WOW OH WOW COULD IT BE THIS SPONSORED BY JA1BK: http://www.arrl.org/dx-log-archive

As this program grows, the uses for the assembled logs will become more apparent. The obvious use for the logs is to provide confirmations in digital form via Logbook of the World for those who provide matching QSL data. Depending on the size of the log, ARRL may choose to digitize logs and place them into LoTW proactively

I missed the good high-band days since I was not QRV on HF until late 2016. I had worked some "almost" EUs on 10m like CN, and EA8 but today was my first true EU stations on 10m. Very cool!

4L1MA is diligently entering old QSOs.

I got confirmations from 2013 that were a month apart in the original QSO time separated by only a day as far as QSL date goes.

So, if this commendable rate continues, perhaps we will see "a month's advance" in terms of QSO date for every actual day.  That is surely substantial as far as rate goes for a busy DX operator.

Anyway, I got two mid 2013 QSOs confirmed.  If you read this, well done 4L1MA!

For me, at least:

Look in clublog at your QSL requests. Highlight the images, copy, and then paste into notepad.

Go to the log check of the DX station. Enter your call. Hit the Request QSL button. Then the QSO data entry screen comes up and to the right of the data entry you will see an icon that tells you that a QSL request has already been made. Next to it (if the DX station is using the feature) there is an icon that tells you it return QSL has been printed and sent. (Scroll over the icon and the info will show)

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but you are not going to see those cards until I believe September.....and I think the same goes for LOTW....kind of a drag, but as I recall, their web site said QSLs won't be out for 6 months after the expedition....

If you broadly got the idea that not every DXpedition or QSL manager has identical policies for LOTW, you would be correct!

My reading is that 3C0W has promised a upload for everyone 6 months after the DXpedition. I've never seen them offer early uploads. They seem like they've been consistent about this the whole time:

 I could have sworn that 3C0L and 3C1L both uploaded to LoTW before I got their cards, and they said the same thing: "Also LoTW will be uploaded in 6 months time after the end of DX-pedition." But, I could be mistaken. It's happened before.

I could have sworn that 3C0L and 3C1L both uploaded to LoTW before I got their cards, and they said the same thing: "Also LoTW will be uploaded in 6 months time after the end of DX-pedition." But, I could be mistaken. It's happened before.

You're not crazy.  I got my 3C0L LoTW confirmations on 2017-12-09, and the cards came on 2018-02-12.

My 3C0W/3C3W cards are still not showing as printed on ClubLog, but many others are reporting they have received theirs already.  I reckon they'll get here when they get here.

Cards in hand today for 3C0W and 3C3W.

 It seems unusual to receive cards for such a dxpedition before any LoTW confirmations.

If you broadly got the idea that not every DXpedition or QSL manager has identical policies for LOTW, you would be correct!

My reading is that 3C0W has promised a upload for everyone 6 months after the DXpedition. I've never seen them offer early uploads. They seem like they've been consistent about this the whole time:

(http://n3qe.org/3c0wlotw.png)

My cards from 3C0L and 3C1L (received after Lotw Upload) were sent from the same name and address as the cards from 3C3W and 3C0W

Wish I could find a way to insert the image here.

KG4WH - Guantanamo Bay - worked on 6 meter FT8 this morning, and confirmed on LoTW 5 hours later. Nice.  Now, anybody know the QSL status for PJ4V, worked on 6 meters on 6/11/18. Neither OP has any info on their QRZ page. Thanks.

Has anyone received their 3C0W/3C3W QSL card(s)? It may be a bit early yet, but their web site indicated cards would go out at the end of April. Just curious, I didn't want to lose mine since 3C0 is one of those entities I've managed to avoid working for many years and I finally snagged this expedition.
Thanks in advance -

Larry NU4B

For me, at least:
 [QSL was printed on 05-Jun-18 and will/has been sent via direct]

Look in clublog at your QSL requests. Highlight the images, copy, and then paste into notepad.

OK, thanks. For some reason that slipped my mind. Really you can just scroll over the QSL printed icon and it tells you. Mine also was printed on 6/5. I guess I was a bit impatient. Thanks for jogging my memory.

"De plane" from the civilized world arrived Monday and among the QSL arrivals was 3C0W (and 3C3W). Finally Annobon!!!!

I will agree that for WAS, moving can "start it all over again". This is the 50-mile limit in WAS rule #4.

But for DXCC, there is no starting over again, and hasn't been for a few decades now (*). Any contacts you previously worked from continental USA and confirmed, can still count for DXCC.

(*) In the most extreme case, a local ham who moved from 0-land to 9-land, just the other side of the river from Iowa, did have to start all over again. But again that was old DXCC rules, not current.

I have two mixed DXCC Awards.  I had to start over when I moved from Hawaii to Pennsylvania, as they count for separate DXCC countries.

Just got my KH1(LoTW) and 4B4B QSLs for ATNOs, so I'm now at 322 current countries. I think that is 320 worked and confirmed since I worked VK0TH at the end of his operating stint in 2012

While I was out of town the following came on LOTW:

VK0AI on 30m
4L1MA on 30m

4L1MA continues his commendable practice of uploading past QSOs, though this one is pretty much present tense now.  

VK0AI has now uploaded the QSO I really needed confirmed.  Strangely, the older one remains unconfirmed, but fortunately not one I need.  I suggest patience with this station as it seems new to the game; I can imagine the older one eventually getting uploaded.

P.S. If a station on CW IDs himself as SV2ASP/A often, it is a pirate. If a station can go on CW 30 minutes or more without IDing himself, it is very likely Monk Apollo SV2ASP/A.  ;D ;D ;D

August 10 - Information regarding direct QSL and LoTW

A lot of direct QSL letters don't reach their destination and are returned to me with the reason "address is undeliverable" or get lost in the process. I send out all direct QSL cards once every month. If you have not received your direct QSL card, please write email to me and I will send again (yl2gm@inbox.lv). Please also check that your address is correct in QRZ.com and clublog.org.

LoTW will be uploaded not later than 1st of September.

My first QSO with him, close to the start of his activity on the island has not been confirmed via LOTW, only via eQSL. However, I managed to make a second QSO 3 weeks ago and this new QSO was now uploaded. It appears new QSOs do get confirmed via both eQSL (the same day) and also via LOTW (perhaps just once a month). This was my #316  ;D

Got some average but notable stuff in the latest LOTW batch:

Z66D Kosovo - 20m SSB
4O9TTT Montenegro - 20m SSB (didn't realize just how long it had been since my last 4O QSO!)
RT2F Kaliningrad - 15m SSB
And it looks like F5MUX has put a bunch of QSOs into LOTW. It looks like I have confirmation from most, if not all, of our past QSOs. Good to see Lee on LOTW!

C8T gave me cards today for both my 2m and 30m QSOs.

Have not received LOTW confirmations (though the QRZ entry says they will??).  Their own QRZ entry admits to confusion about how to QSL the 2m stuff, so I am not sure what is actually going to happen, LOTW-wise.  Not that it ultimately matters.

Happy to have the confirmations!

If only it would!  I worked VP6DIA 15 years ago ( :o )for my Ducie contact.  I know Norbert is on primarily on weekends (I think you told me that in an earlier post) and he was very active on 30 & 40 this past weekend, but I've yet to see spots from NA East coast ... let alone have good propagation!

I wish I had bagged the recent S2 and/or Spratly Dx-peditions ... I'd have the dancing zebra doing the Tarantella!

In the meantime....the hunt continues!

AP2MUT - PAKISTAN. The operator Tariq does use LOTW. He was willing to upload our recent 20m SSB QSO to LOTW, but at this time he does it manually, he types the QSO details via the form at the ARRL LOTW web site. If you happen to need a QSO with him confirmed, ask for it during the QSO, or try to contact him via his email. Tariq is now in the process of designing his own paper QSL card.

What has come in handy for me many times: make brag spots every time I work a new slot. In case I lose my log, or (more commonly) forget to log the QSO at the time I made it, I can look up my spots on the cluster to recall time, band, and mode!

If VP6D's log was on Clublog, you could shotgun-search around likely times until you find a match.



Title: RE: LoTW / QSL Received
Post by: WO7R on October 31, 2018, 06:42:37 AM
Define "dead".

If the hard file was still functional, or even partly so, you could expect to recover your logs from the old PC.  You could pay for it to be done or, if you have even moderate skill, you could buy about a 30 dollar device, plug your old hardfile into it, and plug the other end into a USB port.

Then, it's just a matter of knowing or searching for the log file and copying it over to the new PC.  This would be true even if it was (say) a MySQL data base file or whether it was something else more basic like a text file (which most logging programs create).


Title: RE: LoTW / QSL Received
Post by: WO7R on October 31, 2018, 06:58:09 AM
Also, did you upload your log anywhere?.

You don't need a lot for either DXpedition.  Just the band, the date and (the tricky part perhaps) the time in UTC.  I assume you know the mode.

Both Clublog and LOTW have provisions for your to recover some form of your log.  You could then recover enough information to form your QSOs into ADIF with the following fields:

CALL
MODE
TIME_ON
QSO_DATE
BAND

. . .and submit this wherever you need to (9X0Y has its own version of On-line QSL Request -- you can find it via QRZ.com).

Note that most QSO matching systems only require accuracy to 15 or 30 minutes to allow the match.  A good enough memory might be all you need.

You can also use the logging information from the WSJT-X log directory for FT8 if that survived even if your regular log did not.  If all else fails, you can process ALL.TXT as well in that directory.

It is not common that data is entirely lost.  It's harder to lose data entirely than it looks these days.  Just might require a little persistence and ingenuity.

Post by: W1VT on October 31, 2018, 07:15:21 AM
I still make it a point to paper log all my ATNOs and challenge points.  I usually write down the time first someplace.   Even when I had my station set up to automatically upload to LoTW and EQSL.

?? eQSL was and still is accepted for WAZ and has been for quite a while.  FWIW.

You still might consider that if you get serious about, say, 5BWAZ.  There are maybe 20 or 30 per cent of DX stations that will do eQSL and not LOTW.  If you read eham, you would think that is impossible, but my own logging history suggests that it is so.

Interestingly, some of the DX in the rarer zones seem more prone to using eQSL.  And, if they don't want to be pestered for cards, you can guess why.  That may change now that LOTW credits are finally good for WAZ.  But, I can assure you that "Authenticity Guaranteed" accounts (many of which "guarantee" themselves with their LOTW status anyway) are credited and have been for a long while now.

Hi,

Glad I made some happy with the Upload. It was a fun 3 weeks, making over 3000 Q's, in 131 countries, on 10-160m,  running 75 watts, "playing" on FT8.  Being the only V4 on FT8 made for very high demand.

But the icing on the cake was 4 ATNO's on SSB, for a new 301 country total ALL SSB.   SO THANK YOU....

73,

John  V47JA

John,

4 ATNOs in 3 weeks. That's excellent, congrats. Which 4 entities were they?

Hi,

VP6D, TU5MH, ET3AA, and Z23MD.   The TU, ET and Z23 I should have had before but I was always in Texas and not St. Kitts when they were on. That also is the problem for a lot of the others I am missing.

73,

John  V47JA - W5JON

Glad I made some happy with the Upload.

You always make me happy when you upload.  Confirmations are always very welcome, even if I had you confirmed on the same band and mode from two trips ago.

Thanks!

1 year no post from me because busy on the bands but doing I nice test:

Last year I uploaded my log to LotW. Since that time I run many QSOs but did no single upload to LotW because I wanted to see how many QSLs I will receive in one year. So here it is:


Today is Wed, 29 Nov 2017 UTC

You are DL1NKS

Log Off

You have 516,251 QSO records

You have 171,669 QSL records


and one year later:


Today is Wed, 7 Nov 2018 UTC

You are DL1NKS

Log Off

You have 516,251 QSO records

You have 178,590 QSL records


So 6921 QSLs in one year and nothing to do for me, just sitting in the chair and watching the number which is going up. So LotW is a really great tool.

The number of QSLs is very good comparing I am getting round about 3500 to 4000 Cards a year via the traditional buerau.

And last but not last the syncro between LotW and qrz.com logbook is a great tool too, putting me a few QSOs ahead of my good contestfriend AA3B on the list with most confirmed QSOs.

So right now I pushed the button again and moved all QSOs from clublog to LOTW and here is the new info:


Today is Sat, 17 Nov 2018 UTC

You are DL1NKS

Log Off

You have 537,738 QSO records

You have 184,538 QSL records


So all I can say:

I love LOTW. 1 year ago I thought digital confirmed QSOs or not a good one for me and I did not like it but now I really changed my mind.

So with using LOTW DXCC + 9 Band DXCC + more than 2200 Challenge Points were only one single mouse click away. Its unbelievable how many time I would have to spend sorting all this cards.

So right now I am a really satisfied LotW USER with a big smile on my face just sitting here and watching my QSL records. I strongly recommend LOTW.

Sorry, I do not know whether my story is interesting or off topic, but I thought it would be the right place because the topic here is “LoTW / QSL received”.

Steve,

Interesting stats, indeed. I just looked at the QSOs I made during the most recent CQ WW DX SSB contest which ended less than three weeks ago. Out of the 136 DXCC entities I worked, 99 have ALREADY been confirmed via LOTW. That's less than 3 weeks since the end of the contest! Long Live LOTW! :-)
