I am pretty sure I will anger some by this outburst, but I think it needs to be discussed.
Is it purely coincidental that so many rare stations do not use LoTW, but will gladly accept payment via PayPal or some other fancy online system such as OQRS. Alternatively they will accept return “postage” in the form of green stamps, which in all likelihood will disappear in the post anyway.
I guess the time will come that I won’t even chase or work these sharks?
Using the QSL system to extort money is unacceptable…..
