         This 69 year-old OF (with a CK of 55) doesn't consider it 
complicated!  My 9th Band DXCC is now pending thanks to some LoTW 
QSL's.  However, I would suggest to anyone that is just starting in on 
LoTW:  PRINT OUT the complete instructions, follow them one at a time, and 
mark off each step as it is completed.  Makes it easy!  The younger 
computer generation will find that it's really a snap.
         Once you have sent in your computer-age QSO's, you are then able 
do make many useful lists and generate all kinds of useful statistics about 
your operations.  And this doesn't COST ANYTHING.  Try it, you will like it!
