I really am a strong proponent of the Log of the World (LOTW) and I enjoy logging on and seeing how my QSL count grows. I have uploaded a total of 3,829 QSO's and I have a return of 793 QSL's. That's a return rate of right at 21%, which seems about average from what I've read others are getting. I have an eQSL account as well, and I was glad to hear that they can now be used for the CQ awards. However, I don't really care much for their web interface and as a result I don't really monitor it nearly as much as I do LOTW.
Yeah, I've heard people complain about how 'hard' it is to set up LOTW, but it really isn't all that bad. And once you're done, you're good to go. When I was using DXKeeper, one of its great features was automatic upload and download of LOTW (and eQSL) contacts. That was really a nifty feature. But since I've switched over to TRX-Manager, I have to do it manually. It takes a couple of minutes at the most, but works just as smoothly.
And, yes, I wish there was only one, instead of two services, or that they accepted both. But there isn't and I'll work with what's there.
But as much as I love it, what do you think the odds are of this happening at the same time? My DXCC count stands at 99 and my WAS count stands at 49!
I need one more darn country and one more darn state (HELLO South Carolina, are you out there??) and I'll have them both.
Wouldn't it be great if I got both of them on the same day? :) Then I can start to work on DXCC and WAS by bands.
