Re: Download to LoTW does not show QSL sent

Hi Mel,

Thanks for your follow up.  You have the terminology switched, which may be introducing some confusion.  Sending your log to LoTW is generally considered uploading.  Downloading is when the records are pulled from LoTW and marked as Sent at that time.  Please see this FAQ here (and be mindful that LoTW delays may have been a bit longer lately):

I think you are missing my initial problem. when I send the log to LoTW. It does not show that I SENT QSL. it should say yes.

The feedback I got from you shows that I would have received a qsl.

Looking for some guidance.  I had four new contacts in ACLog. I downloaded them to LoTW. When I looked at AClog it did not show QSL sent = Y. I double checked LoTW and all four showed up. In fact two of them were already confirmed.  I downloaded confirmed from LoTW to ACLog and now the two showed Sent and Confirmed = Y but the other two still showed Sent = N and of course the Received = N
Hoping there is an easy explaination
