Hi Alan:

While new to the on-line logging stuff, I do both--I see them providing 
two seperate functions.  LoTW is simply a method to electronically match 
logged contacts for ARRL award programs.  eQSL, is more of a generic 
replacement for traditional hard-copy QSL mailing.

At least this is my take on them.
