As of Fri Sep 26 14:09:32 UTC 2014 the leaderboard now shows 25,529 QSOs. But 2 of my QSOs are missing.

Quote by F8CRS
I'd like to know how to get the dxcc plaque on LOTW? or do I have to check paper cards?


Have you looked at http://www.arrl.org/dxcc-and-lotw-faq and https://lotw.arrl.org/lotw-help/dxcc-award-credit/ ?
QRZ.com can now sign LoTW logs K0STK on 20/5/14
http://forums.qrz.com/showthread.php?436528-QRZ-Announces-Secondary-Callsign-and-LoTW-Support

"Our next big announcement concerns our online logbook. Many, many folks have asked us for LoTW integration and we're pleased to announce that this is now available to all Logbook subscribers. This means that if you're an LoTW user, you can push your QRZ logs directly to LoTW with just a couple of clicks of the mouse. The logbook offers options to send individual QSO's, lists of QSO's, or even your entire logbook directly to LoTW. We have created a configuration page which allows you to import your LoTW certificate into QRZ so that we can sign and send the logs on your behalf."

According to page 4 at http://files.qrz.com/static/qrz/lotw_cert_guide.pdf they have you export a certificate which is not protected by a password. Then you upload that unlocked certificate to their server,

This seems to me to be a dilution of the identity assurance provided by LoTW.

FLdigi to N1MM logger kb1yvr on 27/4/14
According to https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/paNBEMS/conversations/topics/4533:

'use [the] Fldigi "engine" within N1MM as opposed to plain Fldigi. Just use N1MM, set-up Fldigi as your preferred digital engine, and then select Field Day in N1MM Logger and off you go. Setting up of N1MM will involve telling it the path to Fldigi.'

Vanity Call - When to apply vs expiration date WV0L on 6/4/14
Quote by KenWLeidner
All applications received on that day went into a lottery and one would be selected. If none were received on the first day after the call sign was available, the process would occur on the day the first request for the call sign was received. All on that day go into a lottery …


Vanity call sign applications submitted less than 2 years and one day after a call sign expiration date will be denied.

It is also my understanding that applications are processed in a random order rather than in the order received.

Here some facts about the timeline for application processing retrieved from an archive.org copy of vanityhq.com:

1. Vanity applications are usually processed on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays

2. Applications received on Monday are processed on Friday, 18 days later

3. Applications received on Tuesday are processed on Saturday, 18 days later

4. Applications received on Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday are processed on Tuesday, 18 days after the Friday date

5. Holidays occuring between the received date and the processed date don't seem to change the schedule. However, Monday holidays cause the Tuesday processing to be a day late

6. Applications filed on Saturday, Sunday, or a holiday are marked "received" and date stamped the next business day

7. Applications are processed as a batch job in the early morning hours while the ULS system is off-line. If the batch job fails it may cause grants to be delayed
