[CQ-Contest] L.O.T.W.

Perhaps one could use a LOTW QSL as confirmation of a contest QSO, or indeed confirmation of 'not a contest QSO'. That would allow the less scrupulous among us to massage their log before it was submitted? Uploading contest logs vs DX-pedition logs is a different issue.

Some people wait until the contest log deadline to submit their logs, and to prepare their LOTW file to upload.   I suspect in the case of W1AW/5 multi-multi they had the additional task of consolidating logs from a dozen operating positions scattered across two (or was it three) different locations.  (I know that it took me a while to have the time to fix some log problems from the multi-single effort I hosted here.)

It escapes me why getting a LOTW confirmation 30 days after the QSO was a problem (for both of you).   What would you use the confirmation for?   DXCC?
