Hi Dave,

Yes I do the same, I upload to eQSL but don't use it myself.
I have nothing against eQSL "administrators" and it seems they're doing a good job, however the fact that matching is not "blind" and the fact you can claim "WSPR" QSOs or SWL QSLs that are technically no different that 2-ways QSLs leads to some abuses...

> I don't CHECK eQSL requests, but I download my logs there (as well as LoTW) so those who wish my QSL get it if correct call is in both logs -- and only if correct call is in both logs, same as LoTW, since I don't review unmatched cards.  Mostly appreciated by CQ award hunters & those who enjoy viewing various QSL cards, which LoTW doesn't offer.  This way works same as LoTW with minimal effort on my part. I was impressed that my LU/  log (LU0 for CQ prefix hunters) wasn't accepted until their Argentine representative signed off on it as legitimate, even though LU is not exactly a rare catch for most purposes.

IF winlog32 or any logging program.. like N1MM would do the LOTW auto.. I'd be plumb happy...and so would a whole lotta other folk too. (the ones that need a WY confirmation).
