@jboverf ive never actually been able to log a contact in LOTW. I upload my qrz log to it instead. I also dont mess woth the awards for the same reason. I tried applying for one a while back and couldnt figure it out. QRZ was done in two minutes. In fact they notified me that i was eligible. I just use LOTW so folks can get their contacts on there. Its useless to me personally. But I try to keep using it to promote folks using something common since the arrl has backed lotw.
