Bill and group:
The use of the LOTW is a great tool to reduce the
paper QSL and help to the new hams or the award
hunters DXCC and WAS, faster and cheap.
Like many after the Contest upload the log to LOTW is
one of the things to do after, send log to the
sponsor and K5ZD for check partial database
we must promote the LOTW with all the active hams.
After the IOTA activities what I organize all the
logs are loaded - Over 25k Qsos- XF1K, XF2K XF4K
my LOTW is close to 80k Q's and 15k Qsl's, every day
I can see is growing my Qsl number.
