Just finished with my Canadian satellite QSOs as CJ7EWK and
VA7EWK. All have been uploaded to LOTW, and the last few
files are still being processed. I also uploaded a handful
of QSO records for WD9EWK, the second half of the QSOs made at
the Canada/USA border that are also in some of the VA7EWK QSO
I have seen QSLs for some of my AO-16 QSOs using the transmit
mode (FM) in the MODE field, so that seems to be a good way to
go. Of course, everyone needs to follow the same band and mode
conventions for this to work right. Overall, LOTW has taken
570 QSO entries for my Canadian and Mexican calls, and I have
received 74 QSLs from them. There are still about 150 more
QSOs the LOTW server needs to process, and I hope to see the
results from those additional QSOs in the morning.
Other than the SO-67 QSOs, I will start uploading my other
satellite QSOs as WD9EWK this weekend. I'm taking care to
set all the information in my LOTW station entries, including
the IOTA number for those QSOs made from Vancouver Island and
counties for the stateside QSOs. And, of course, the grids.
Better to have all of that set up in the beginning.
