Thanks to BB-responses and several email replies (and some good'ol RTFM)
I now recognize that LOTW is not 'just another QSL/log toolbox'...
A simple definition for LOTW : a contact database to make it easier for
the ARRL to confirm 2-way contacts by those requesting ARRL awards.
I'm sure that there are other benefits that I may learn of as I go
down that path; but not being an award collector, the biggest benefit I
see now with LOTW is to add my few contacts that others may be waiting
for confirmation - for their award... Seems simple enough, and I will
probably start that process before long.
Thanks again for the guidance ... HNY /;^)
