    I seem to send out a lot more QSL cards via the Bureau, than I receive. In the UK they have changed the Bureau system. Before, they were dispatched when the envelope were the right weight of the POSTAGE. This could mean long waits. Now they are dispatched every 1/4 year, no matter how many cards are in the envelopes. Some countries differ. In the UK less than 48% of hams are in the RSGB. The Germany Radio Society seems to have the most members at about 77% of members. Italy 75%, (This reflects in the amount of QSL cards I receive from these countries).... USA, ARRL is only 28% and Japan who have the most hams in the world, only 15% are members of the society.
    A lot of Arab countries have NO QSL Bureaus, so either it is done via a special QSL Managers, not Societies.
    Why do a lot of people seem to be against EQSL ?
    I now only QSL direct or via EQSL. If someone sends me a card in the post, with a self addressed envelope, I will return my QSL card free of charge. I am not a big DXer. The reason for SAE, is because their spelling of the language is different from "English", as long as the name of their country, is in English.

    While eQSL has their own operating awards, it is not the "real" DXCC award as issued by the ARRL and the ARRL will not accept confirmations from eQSL towards any of their awards.

    I think E-QSL is a great Idea,
    Why be tied to the ARRL's apron strings, ?
    I joined a few years ago and have already earned the "E-WAS" award, the DX25 award and I am not even a DX chaser !.
    The LoTw was so convoluted that I gave up trying to sign up. E-QSL wants a photocopy of your license and that seems reasonable enough to prove you are you.
    Back when I had Paper QSL cards collected to get the WAS from ARRL, I did not want to send them to CT since the USPS has a reputation for loosing and ruining things I have sent.

    Hi,

    I have a review of eQSL, and LoTW respectively at:

    http://nk7z.net/eqsl-qsl-service/

    http://nk7z.net/review-of-arrl-log-book-of-the-world/

    I tried to not to do a set of compare articles, but as it turned out there is some comparing going on. Hope they help.

    It's funny...I don't use eQSL at all but his thread reminded me to go check and see if people are sending me "cards" there...

    Yeah, they have been. Way over 1000 of them waiting for me. I just copied the very beginning of a several-page long listing there for me. I guess people are using it!

    Beats me. It's a perfectly good system for me.

    Never cared for LoTW. I signed up to it under my old call, only to find that the double blind system means I can't see what's coming in. As soon as I realized that, I never went back. I also discovered that if (in the USA and its territories) you're not an ARRL member, you don't get anything out of LoTW. You can never apply for any ARRL award. Now, for people outside the USA, this isn't an issue, but it's a big issue with me. I have no intention of becoming an ARRL member, ever.

    I've been on the eQSL system almost from the beginning. I have several of their eQSL awards and I can apply my 600+ prefixes towards CQ WPX awards, including CQ WPX Honor Roll.

    All of my calls (past, present, and contesting) are only available direct or on eQSL. They will not be available on LoTW for the foreseeable future, if ever.

    It depends, EQSL is backed by CQ Magazine they have their own awards, I chase Counties (USA-CA) not offered by LOTW. Never will be there's omething to be said for that too.

    Digital contacts seem to upload immediately to eQSL. A lot of them ultimately upload to LoTW. I get some SWL reports on eQSL, which is neat. And I like that you can apply for and download eQSL certificates for free (though I donate some funds each year).

    I Qsl via eQSL and direct. eQSL is convenient as I gave up on LoTW just tiring to get registered. If you do not use eQSL you can check eQSL to see if you have eQSL cards waiting. You can retreive them by free basic membership and set up a "Basic" card using their "canned" card graphics. For a small fee,you can become a Bronze, Silver or Gold member and upload your own QSL card with your graphics. I download received cards and load them to a digital picture frame in the shack. When company comes,I set frame out and have it running. This will lead to amateur radio becoming a topic and if I'm lucky,it winds up with a shack tour and "On The Air" demo. The wife gets her party and I end up back in the shack as part of the party. "All's well that ends well".

    What did not work as far as getting LoTW registered??

    Did you follow the instructions EXACTLY as written?

    Did you contact the ARRL for assistance?

    After reading the comments above, I still think E-QSL is the way to go.
    I still have not gone back to try to register LoTw and think it is more geared to avid computerized DX only hams and DiGi ops, not me.
    I am a CW op, not computerized and not a DX chaser, somewhat of a rag-chewer.

    I use eQSL and really like it. But I'm really behind on uploading my QSOs as, for some reason, I've entered them all into my QRZ log not realising I needed to then pay for XML membership to export them! I'm so skint at the moment that $30 is out of reach!

    I upload all QSO to both eQsl and LoTW. eQsl seems to be very popular hr in Yurp, especially for digimodes, LoTW to a lesser extent, but still.

    With LoTW, it's easier for the folks interested in diplomas - you don't have to honk a brick of qsls over the pond anymore. It isn't hard to register an account, all you have to do is read the instructions on arrl site.

    So, I use them both to keep everyone happy :D

    i upload each QSL automatically to eQSL as a courtesy to those who use it. However, the integrity of the system in not very robust.

    I found LoTW difficult to begin with but it is much easier now. I upload to LoTW daily.

    I only consider ARRL award to be valuable. Got my first DXCC by hauling a stack of cards to a hamfest (Dayton), and having them checked (that was before LoTW). Since then, all of the endorsements of DXCC I have been able to obtain with LoTW only.

    I also have album after album of "real cards"...I still love to send and receive real cards. Not sure why? I guess it goes back to my early days as a ham. I suppose when they put me in a home, all of those cards will just go into a dumpster :)

    Even the ARRL people I've met admit it's a fiasco.

    So do I!

    eQSL for its own would be a great system, if....

    1. the images were of less compression/better resolution to have the rarest ones printed out at reasonable sizes (like a regular 3.5 x 5.5 inch paper card) and good quality. If you do that now, you'll most likely be disappointed.
    2. 100% integrity was given (anyone may claim eQSLs for false QSOs which have been uploaded by mistake) and along with that
    3. they were counting for ARRL awards, which they don't, officially for the reason given in (2.) ;-)

    I must admit I am an old fashioned guy who likes to collect paper cards and to keep the rarest of them in albums, which are presented to visitors every now and then and which I review just for my pleasure. I think I wouldn't be satisfied with eQSL alone for these reasons. Nor would I be with LotW only, which is great for any ARRL award, but not for collectors like myself.

    Last not least: A paper card will still be there in 50 or even 100 years. Can you claim that for eQSL or LotW? I doubt that!

    just my two pennies

    I agree entirely. I stopped using eQSL because they do not count for any ARRL awards whatsoever. I got many nice DX contacts under it, but they will never count for DXCC... :( Sad life we have to live in but it is a bullet I will bite.
