    The renewal system. I know I complained about the convoluted way they have the renewal set up but I just shake my head. They are goobers. jumping-through-hoops-cartoon-vector-4045276.jpg

    I think I got mine renewed ok but I wouldn't know if it works since I've yet to upload anything to it. Yeah, seems kinda silly but at least its there when I finally get around to doing it.

    My favorite part is the awardd record keeping.

    I used to spend a lot of time figuring out what grids I had.

    This is my second renewal. I just don't understand why it's so convoluted for a renewal, national security perhaps? I don't buy their awards, I log for others. Perhaps it's how they punish me.
    Why can't they just ask "are you still alive? Press yes or no.

    I interface with LOTW minimally, just enough to be able to upload/download from my QRZ log. The horrendous user interface keeps me from using other features.

    LOTW came out almost 20 years ago, and I don't think the user interface, the unnecessarily convoluted so-called security, or the unncessarily convoluted way certificates are issued and validated, has changed in any significant way in that time.

    To me it looks like a website of 20 years ago. I do send my QSOs over to LoTW and then download confirmations back. Also, you can't delete data that you later realize is bad. I think that's a huge mistake.

    They say don't complain about something that's free, but...

    The logging system is, IMHO, the best online logging system. I just wish that a person could make their entire log public.
