I am tracking what works and doesn’t work in my HF tinkering. For instance if you are wanting to keep logs and get confirmation of contacts, you need to be on an online logging service like ARRL’s Logbook of the World or QRZ.COM’s free online logbook. If you want confirmations, it helps to be on one where lots of people are confirming contacts. Parks on the Air gives me by far the best confirmation percentage as the numbers below show:
Svc POTA QRZ LOTW
#QSOs 108 83 122
noQSL 9 186 147
%QSL 92.31% 30.86% 45:35%
Of the above options, the ARRL LOTW has the most cumbersome and needlessly complex interface for the user.
