[CQ-Contest] e qsl

It is my understanding with LOTW a QSL only shows up when both logs have the contact. The difference between e-qsl and LOTW is a match is required.

  You have the ability to "REJECT" a QSO in eQSL, which is more than LoTW
  provides. Most of the time it's due to a busted call. I have K1VV and
  K1VUT in my area. All 3 of us are contesters. In CW if you drop a Dit
  or Dah you got my callsign instead of theirs. I just "REJECT" the QSO
  as "Wrong call, NIL" and that takes care of the problem.

  I've using CT since Ver 5 or 6. To get an ADIF file from CT, you need
  to use the "C2A" utility (CT 2 ADIF). I've converted all my old CT
  contest logs to ADIF's and uploaded them to eQSL and signed them for
  LoTW uploads.

  You can find C2A on the K1EA website.
