Subject: [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 .
