    I made a few of contacts that will confirm QSOs via direct paper QSLs only.

    Can these contacts be added to electronic logs (i.e. LoTW and QRZ) indirectly ?
    I was thinking of sending these cards to the ARRL for confirmation and hoping they are added to my LoTW logbook. Then doing a LoTW to QRZ transfer.

    Or has the ARRL abandoned paper QSL checking altogether ?
    It is not obvious from their website.

    But for QRZ, no.

    If they are checked in LoTW first, then can't the contacts be transferred from LoTW to QRZ in a second step ?

    Nope. For some reason those credits aren't transferred.

    Just a guess on this matter. I suspect the ARRL does not make the paper confirmations available to QRZ logbook.

    Thanks for the clarification, Bill.

    By the way, I thought your call sounded familiar.
    We worked on FT8 several times and you were my first Puerto Rico FT8 contact.
    Thanks for your contribution to my DX100 :).
