3 new on LoTW with TS7C, FT5GA and FO/G3BJ


Posted: October 31st, 2009 under DX, Hamradio, LoTW.

lotw-logo-c.jpg Confirmations on LoTW has been quite slow lately, but things have picked up the last few weeks. TS7C gave me #234 with a confirmation on 30M CW. Then I was quite surprised to see that FT5GA (Glorioso) uploaded their log so soon. That makes #235 on LoTW. Yet another surprise followed the next day, with FO/G3BJ (Austral) giving me #236 on LoTW.

I'm happy that more and more people and expeditions are using LoTW. That means less QSL-work for me. Don't get me wrong, I like QSLcards, but as soon as they are marked in the log and replied to, they are stowed away in a closet. I rarely take some of them out and watch, but when I do, I always get surprised at what I have in fact worked. I have never applied for any diplomas either. Maybe some time in the future I will in fact do that. And let's not forget the cost of direct QSLing. Postage is not cheap here in Norway and direct doesn't always guarantee a QSL back. There are some operators out there who doesn't bother QSLing at all. Luckily they are a minority.

Now let's put the rant away, and pray for more fine DX in the log and confirmations on LoTW.
