Re: Grid chase 2022

I think you are mixing two different things:
1. Creating interesting opportunities to get on the air.
2. LOTW development.

The latter will take years to mature, but in the meantime we need to encourage and support on the air activities.  As this any systems transition, development on the legacy side will need to deminish over time, but whatever efforts that have been spent on these activities have proven worthwhile.
Now that there is a roadmap, work with it with a renewed sense of confidence and consider constructive and opportunistic commenrs that advance activity.

And we all had fun in spite of your opposition.

Get over it, Dave.  Your jeremiads are wearing very thin.

+ You said the exact same thing back in 2010 - before the ARRL's focus on adding award support (WPX, Triple Play) over addressing all of the corners it had cut during development caused LoTW to grind to a life-threatening halt in late 2012.

+ Cheerleading might make you feel good, Hans, but has no impact on reality: there is less LoTW development capability now than at any time since it was first initiated. The ARRL's stated plan is to start over from scratch, meaning that the current situation will persist for years.
