Hams, it's 2020. There's no reason not to:

1. Use Logbook of the World
2. Set it up so your logs are uploaded right after a digital contact

@jboverf I can't stand LOTW. I use it, but only remotely through QRZ. Their interface is a disaster. Cannot find anything and i end up going in circles.

@Hawk1291 the interface itself isn't great. The real value is PKI-confirmed contacts and thus verifiable awards


@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.
