Re: Something going on at LotW ...

The LotW support folks have been doing maintenance on the site and the supporting processes recently. For a while, the “Find Call” feature within LotW was busted. I’m sure the trouble ticket I put in joined hundreds of others already with them. This problem was soon resolved.
QRZ.COM had to make some script changes after the LotW download API apparently changed slightly. DXKeeper complained during LotW sync operations for a while, then everything settled down
Many folks tend to think of LotW, Club Log, QRZ.COM, etc. as these constant and unchanging sites and services. In fact, these services struggle constantly with interface, performance and scaling issues.
I am very grateful that Dave has provided in DXKeeper a means by which I can keep my log accurately and securely, so that I can wait out the inevitable periodic instabilities of external services.

I have seen something like this sporadically during the past couple of weeks.
