Simplifying

I have been an Amateur Radio operator for 16 years now. I was a Technician for a couple of years, and a General for 10, before upgrading to Amateur Extra. Even though I was qualified to play on HF, I never did. I never had the equipment or the place to set it up. When I finally got on the [HF] air, I was anxious to send my QSO’s to every online log system I could find.

Since I originally decided to do that, I was sending all my contacts to QRZ, HamQTH, HRDLog, Clublog, LoTW, and eQSL. From time to time, I would make a little mistake and trying to clean up the fat finger of the keyboard was like pulling teeth. A couple of the sites were nearly impossible, and one is completely impossible.

I would love to completely purge my LoTW logs and start fresh. If anyone knows how to do this, please let me know. I would be incredibly grateful.

My logging software of choice, Log4OM, includes the dang seconds in the log, where most of the online logs could care less about seconds. I have approximately three times the actual contacts logged in LoTW than I really have, all because of the seconds being added to the signed ADIF.

I have closed out my QRZ, HamQTH, and Clublog log accounts. This is not the Department of Redundancy Department. I had to make it easier on myself and only submit to HRDLog and LoTW. eQSL pulls from HRDLog I think, so it will still be active. I am keeping that one mainly because the owner of eQSL lives right here in my own city. Surprise surprise.

The log page of this site shows the centralized log for viewing.

Until next time.
