I'm in the process of converting 35 years' worth of paper logs for submission to LOTW. I've been somewhat less than faithful recording precise times for all my QSO's over the years, and of the 75 or so QSO's I've entered without a specific time, none have been confirmed. So the time fields apparently must match (or at least be close). I have two questions, both related to the time field in LOTW:
1) How close do the time fields have to be to result in a confirmed QSO?
2) For those QSO's in my log with no time recorded, is there any hope of seeing any of those QSO's confirmed via LOTW?

Thanks es 73!

Steve, LoTW QSO times must be within +/- 30 minutes to get a QSL match.

By the way, hope you're doing well, and tell your dad that Charlie, (ex-)N9JLH says hello!

73,
