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

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.
