LoTW Processing Times Improving
Logbook of The World (LoTW) is continuing to accept and process logs. Currently, the processing delay is at 45 hours, down from 60 hours last week. As of November 15, there are 1.7 million QSOs waiting to be processed, a decrease of 40 percent -- more than 1 million QSOs -- in the past five days. If you have already uploaded a log, there is no need to upload it again; by doing so, you will only add to the queue. Do not send entire logs that contain previously uploaded QSOs; please use the date range option when signing logs, selecting only those QSOs in a specific date range to upload to LoTW. By following these guidelines, this will allow LoTW to process the backlog at a faster pace. The ARRL IT staff continues to investigate an anomalous series of events that began on October 29, initially creating the persisting backlog. The IT staff is also working diligently to speed up the LoTW processing time and eliminate the backlog. Thanks again for your patience.
