    I use the QRZ log, but I don't seem to get many confirmations.
    It is:
    Far easier than LOTW
    It is simple and easy to understand.
    You can copy it and post it on eQSL and LoTW.
    It is online and can access it with a laptop or smartphone.
    You can get awards too!
    So what am I missing? Why isn't everybody using it?

    I use it all the time. If I talked to ya Burt I would confirm our contact. I find it much easier than LOTW, but I also use EQSL also, so there ya go. I hand log all my contacts and then put them in every couple days. I know, I'm old fashioned, just something about using a paper log that I like. I don't even have a computer in my operation position, so yes that is old fashioned LOL!!!

    It's all I use (besides paper). LOTW is too much of a PITA.

    Out of how many Q's and how much time ?
    I get over 25% here , use scratch pad and later post here .
    I like casual DX hunt & pounce , too much of a pain for LOTW , if I was younger & my brain worked more like todays computers [ I think my brain works very well , better than the programing , I am always fighting ] .

    I use the N3FLP Amateur Contact Log, and once you get the LOTW working, it is super easy to upload to LOTW.

    I Download from LOTW to QRZ. Not sure why more folks don't use both.

    I also as a courtesy, upload from N3FJP to Clublog and eQsl on occasion.

    LOTW Sure beats sending paper, when chasing DXCC on 7 bands, etc, although I did have to send more than enough paper.

    I have about a 50% QSL rate for QRZ or LOTW.

    The n3fjp logging program makes logging to all these logs easy. QRZ will upload confirmations from LOTW to QRZ to increase confirmations but just getting QRZ confirmation is pretty thin. It is interesting though that I have dx and local confirmed on QRZ that isn't confirmed in eqsl or lotw.
    I log all the major logs with n3fjp because it takes a couple of minutes total at the end of my radio time. I just don't get the lack confirmations in any of these sites, it's a courtesy that takes little effort.
    Now that I'm in 4 land, once I have my station up and running perhaps we'll have a ragchew Burt. Whatever you want to talk about except weather, gear, and contests.
