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.

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).

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.

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.

When I got my card from BG2AUE, I was finally able to apply for WAZ, back in 2015, when cards were required.

?? 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.

Slow down, Mason. You will have HR before you enter college.

Leave something for your retirement. Smiley
