[CQ-Contest] Not in LOTW, where are they?

Sounds like you need to contact those 43 ops and find out why they aren't using LotW.

Maybe you can convince some of them to join and upload.

Failing that... If you have or can get a physical card from any of those entities, when you apply for DXCC or an endorsement, the DXCC desk should automatically put the acknowledgement of the confirmed QSO on your DXCC record in LotW.  

Keep in mind some of those logs may still be in analog format.  Some of those operators may have their own reasons not to upload.  Some may not have access to computers.  Some may have QSY'd to another plane of existance.

I just reviewed my log against LOTW and found 43 callsigns in entities I need but not confirmed in LOTW.

I just broke 300 with 304 claimed and sure would like an LOTW confirmation on those missing 43.... to take me up there.

That sounds like a high number of no-shows;  is it or what is the situation?

​Yes, now I like LoTW, 73,​
