#9 on 160 for me.  Cheesy  It's not often I get 9 bands and 3 modes confirmed by one expedition.  I think it happened one other time. Probably Clipperton.

D66D OQRS is now up.  Once again I don't need a physical card.  Perhaps I'll just send them a donation without doing OQRS, and wait 6 months for a LoTW confirmation.  I just hate to waste postage and paper for something I don't desire to keep.

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

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!

This is why I enjoy 160m.  It's like a re-start of a chase for the DXCC!

Thank you Marvin for the update.  I'm going to submit a help ticket and let him know of my 'check box' idea.  I can see Michael doesn't want to be part of a larger movement of charging for QSOs.  But I sincerely see it coming!

I was hoping you would. It was an excellent idea.

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.

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.
