[amsat-bb] Logging and Recording Passes

In studying videos on the internet and reading emails on the BB, I have noticed a frequent mention of "recording" passes, and eventually "uploading to LoTW."

My questions are:   What is the most common used way of audio recording: a digital handheld recorder or computer software of some kind?  I will have a stationary station; not portable handheld.

Is it common to keep a personal log and then upload it to LoTW?  If so, what personal log program is commonly used?

I normally do not use a logging program and certainly not familiar with LoTW.  I looked at it on the ARRL website and it looked complicated.  I really do not understand the process

I listened to a AO-85 pass with my IC-2730A and a Comet GP-6 dual band base antenna, without any preamp, and was very good copy considering.  That was encouraging.

Any help will be appreciated .
