Confused about LotW kf5nrp on 8/3/12
Quote by kf5nrp


I see the next day that I have 17 QSO's and 1 QSL. I have read the book and know what it says about each, but I am not sure what the difference is. Can someone tell me what this means to me???

Thanks!

I think that what you are asking is the difference between a "QSO" and a "QSL". A "QSO" is a contact, a "QSL" is that contact is confirmed, in LoTW it is confirmed by the other party. Until the contact is confirmed it remains a "QSO".

You cannot applied a QSO toward an award, only a QSL applies.
