  1. Folks bad-mouth LOTW; but like one of your guests said, it’s that way for security. The good thing about the current version of LOTW is once you’ve got it set up, you’re golden. All you need to do is go into the software and have it do a backup. You can then take that backup file, install the LOTW software on another computer (like a laptop or in my case my office PC) then restore the settings on the second computer.

    I recently installed N1MM+ (the current version of N1MM) and I think it’s great! It’s very easy to use. I pretty much just have to enter the call sign and the exchange (ARRL section or state in most cases) and hit Enter. I then can export the file in ADIF format and export it to LOTW.

    Great show, Cale! Keep doin’ whatcher doin’!
