Hi Don from another Don
For us here in ZL we have to send by snail mail a copy of our licence to LOTW before they accept we are legit, they won’t accept an email one .
That’s pompous . I wont even bother with them . Thats why I use eqsl.

I have over 2000 QSO's entered in LOTW and less than 600 have confirmed back. So the reply rate for me is less than 30%. So I guess you are contacting a different group than I am :-)
I am not complaining just stating the facts as they are for me.
EQSL.cc has a much better hit rate.
I have no idea why this is other than it is what it is.

I beg to differ about LoTW. I moved to EPA in 2009, and since September 2009 to today, I have confirmed on LoTW my JT65 WAS, Triple Play WAS, 40M WAS, 20M WAS, CW WAS, Phone WAS, Digital WAS, RTTY WAS, and only need 1 more for 80M WAS, 11 for 15M WAS and 8 more for 10M WAS. So, in less than 2 years I find it difficult to believe you haven't been able to achieve a single WAS on LoTW. It does take time and effort, and I only do ham radio from September to March and I'm done until fall. As N4ABN said, the K3UK LoTW sked page is a valuable source of finding LoTW QSO's.

There are many hams who dont use LOTW, if they did I would have WAS in several bands, but right now I have completed zero due to lack of QSL's.
That is the nature of LOTW.

According to JT Alert I have WAS on 20m. When I look at arrl's lotw they say I only have 47 states and need three more. I would like to reconcile both JT Alert and Arrl LotW. Any suggestions other then I need to find three more states to work and upload to LotW?
