I tend to only work stations that are on LOTW. I've wondered why stations that are on the HB9BZA list LOGic uses...but I still don't get confirmations for so many QSOs.

I wonder no more! Turns out the LOTW servers make available a CSV file with the date and time of the last contact of every station (133,112 as of today). It appears they generate that list at the beginning of the month.

I have massaged that into a membership list item I've called 'LOTW LAST' so when I'm thinking of working a station, I can see they are on LOTW but so many of then have not been on for YEARS!

I've attached the list (from 2-SEP-2019) as a DBF for importing.

Go to Tools -> Setup -> Membership lists. Click on Import List, select the file. Give it a field name (I used LOTW LAST) and then click import. This takes a long time.

73s, Don

I'VE HAD TO ZIP THE DBF FILE AS IT'S OVER 600MB. UNZIP AND PROCEED AS ABOVE
