I don't know what you mean by someone "makes a download". You don't
download in LoTW, you upload QSOs. When contacts match, a QSL is
issued to the certificate -- this is true even if the certificate is
So, if you have an old call and you've given a certificate for it,
once you've uploaded all the calls and you're sure the QSOs are
correct, there's no need to keep the certificate. QSOs will still
match, and QSLs will still be issued.
