Re: Emailed QSLs

While I suspect that more “serious DXers” use LoTW, I do believe that “nobody uses eQSL” is quite incorrect.

+ 150,404 Authenticity Guaranteed users are hardly "nobody".

+ Ops pursuing CQ's USA-CA award have no choice -- an unfortunate situation that should have been addressed by extending LoTW to support USA-CA back in 2018 (or any time thereafter).

+ Each week, when I direct my logging application to synchronize with eQSL, I am offered confirmations from 3-5 stations that I never worked and never logged. LoTW's "double-blind" matching mechanism prevents that.

eQSL claims they have over 375,000 registered users.

+ Only QSOs with "Authenticity Guaranteed" (AG) users of eQSL count for awards sponsored by CQ - like WAZ. As of Sunday, there were 150,404 AG users of eQSL.

That’s significantly more than LoTW.

+ As of Sunday, 168,054 callsigns had submitted QSOs to LoTW.
