Re: [ARRL-LOTW] Re: Response rate for old logs
- Hi guys,You want doing something futile - I opened upmy one file drawer and checked: I entered byhand well over 26K regular and contest QSOduring my W7LPF/DU2 ops [79-81], when - itwas fun being one of the few that operated fromthere on CW during that time frame. Anyway,for all that work - I have 127 confirmations viaLOTW. I believe a big reason of thesparsity of the return is due to the LARGE amountof confirmed QSL's I have in boxes here. Same,or even lower return is evident from my operationsfrom the other places.73,Joe W7LPF----- Original Message -----From: PrasadSent: Saturday, February 10, 2007 15:53Subject: Re: [ARRL-LOTW] Re: Response rate for old logs

If you would like to hear from the DX end, here it is. I uploaded about 17,000 QSOs for the period 1990-1998, mostly contest logs which were already on the computer and a few thousand which were transcribed by hand. Still have over 15,000 QSOs from this period to transcribe from handwritten logs.This resulted in about 850 QSL's - that's roughly 5%.
I was off the air since 1998 and got back on in September 2006, from which time I have made and uploaded about 1250 QSOs and had a return of 172 QSLs - a rate close to 14% !
Seeing your return rate (1%), maybe I will focus on the 1990-1998 range for now - have a large number of 17 & 12M QSOs in there. I do have a few thousand for the period 1985-1990 but maybe when/if I finish the rest :)

Uploading 27,000 QSOs must have been excruciating. (By the time I
finished uploading about 2,700 QSOs from 1979-1985, I was almost happy
that I couldn't find my logs from 1985-1994 or so...) It definitely
tells me not to check LoTW on a daily basis!
