Before I throw out my stats, a bit of explanation might help. I'm a newer
ham who has been on HF less then 1 year. Over this past summer I started
contesting and specifically RTTY contesting. So I have a good amount of QSOs
related to contests and RTTY contesters are excellent at using LoTW.
Here are my LoTW stats:
Total QSOs: 4,896
Total confirmed on LoTW: 2,336
% confimed: 48 %
Hopefully the rudimentary tables below come through in the email ok and the
mailing list doesn't botch up the presentation.
Mode QSOs QSLs Percent
RTTY 3281 1881 57%
USB 669 193 28%
LSB 610 181 29%
CW 219 24 11%
PSK31 69 30 43%
PSK125 48 27 56%
Location QSOs QSLs Percent
US 2805 1717 61%
DX 2091 619 30%
So my stats seem to indicate that digital mode contacts are more likely to
use LoTW and that US stations are far more likely to use LoTW.

I am curious as to the percentage of stations worked and station confirmed
on LOTW. Mine is running about 36% Is that typical or am I low or high?
I hope this is not off-topic, but quite a few contesters use LOTW.

In our day and age it seems that Common Sense is in short supply. If you
don't have any Common Sense - get some Common Sense and use it. If you
can't find any Common Sense, ask for help from somebody who has some Common
Sense. Is Common Sense divine?
