Hello LoTW Users...
Yesterday, I received a confirmation from a United States Ham for a QSO 9 months ago. So, I took it upon my self to 'seek to understand' (via email) why he chose to delay his upload so long. He was nice enough to respond. He stated he is 45 years old and had been a Ham for 15 years and that his 'cadence' was to try and upload once every 6 months but fell behind. We had a great back and forth and I let him know that his current software would allow him to upload REAL TIME and would not have to remember to 'upload' ever again. He was like, "WOW" Why they hell did I not know this"?... Well, like so many, people/hams do not have an Elmer or "mentor" to guide them.
Unless you live in a super remote area of the world or the like, I can't reconcile why anyone would NOT be more considerate and upload their logs either real time or daily at the very least. There are many looking for confirmation for a long list of awards and it just makes good sense.
So, if you are one of those operators who does NOT upload to LoTW daily...please consider changing your standard operating procedures and just make it happen.
Thanks, 73, and God Bless!
Your "digital" Elmer
