LoTW, it is a very convenient system for us. No need to send SASE, no need to send your paper QSL card. But to register to use LoTW, we must go through some procedures.
It is troublesome, and there are a lot of people who do not register. Of course, to register or not, it depends on an idea of each person. It is not what is forced on another person.
Some people prefer to exchange paper QSL cards, some people use both ways, some people only LoTW.
This is his diary of articles of a certain day.
“A certain USA station who made contact with me in June on 6m band sent me a paper QSL card and 5 USD. He rushed me to send my QSL card to him like a QSL begger. But I coaxed him to register LoTW. I needed one month to persuade him. Then I got a confirmation of our QSO on 6m band. I also requested him to confirm our QSO on 160m band in JAN. It took a few weeks. After then, he told me again and again that “I followed your instructions. Next, you should send me your paper QSL card!” So I made prints unwillingly. I will send back 5 USD to him.”
How do you think of his behavior?
Do you still want to QSO with him?
