I am extremely pleased to see the high success rate I am achieving on getting QSOs confirmed via LoTW. Many of these are truly rare DX stations that could easily have chosen the more lucrative Dollar collecting route, but they choose to support the LoTW system. I think it is becoming very clear who the real amateurs are as opposed to the ones with ulterior motives?
I operate a small pistol station with very basic antennas on HF, yet I am very close to obtaining a DXCC on 10m primarily using CW in about a year. I have also had good results on 6m from working mainly European stations. In many cases, I received a LoTW confirmation and a paper QSL card for the 6m QSOs.
This is almost without any effort. This was achieved mainly due to the effectiveness of LoTW and the radio amateurs that choose to support the LoTW program.
