There are two different issues being described in this thread
and I do not see the ARRL HQ shutdown as being related to either
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
1. Contacts uploaded to LOTW via ACL are not marked as sent until
you perform the "All Since" download. This is as documented in
the N3FJP documentation and in my opinion is proper as it will
show that the QSO has been accepted by LOTW. When your uploaded
records have been processed and you perform the "All Since"
download, the records will be marked as uploaded.
2. I believe that the excessive delay in processing the uploads
has nothing to do with the HQ shutdown as the processing is done
automatically. The delays are simply due to the number of QSO
records that were uploaded. If you look at the LOTW statue web
page, you can see how far behind the system is at processing the
uploads. For example at one time last week the processing delay
was over 6 hours and right now, the delay is virtually
non-existent to less than 5 minutes. These delays are nothing
like the delays seen several years ago (before the LOTW server
update) during large special events, such as the W1AW/xx event,
where the delay could easily be more than 24 hours.

Wondering if all these problems
which has suddenly arisen could be a problem with the ARRL
during these unprecedented times???

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

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

Click on All
Since*date*, edit the date to a couple of
days ago and click OK
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
there is an easy explaination
