I have DXCC on 160M, 80M, 40M, 30M, 20M, 17M, 15M, 12M and 10M. Country total is 349 countries confirmed. Logs are uploaded to LoTW daily.

I was active in Texas from 1979 to 1999. My station had: (1) a 250 foot tower with four 6-element 20 meter yagis in a switched phased array, with an 8-element 10 meter beam at 260 feet; (2) a 200 foot tower with four 6-element 15 meter yagis in a switched phased array; (3) a 140 foot tower with a 4-element 40 meter yagi; (4) a 90 foot tower with two 6-element 10 meter yagis stacked; (5) a 100 foot tower with 6-element 20 meter beam, a 5-element 15 meter beam, and a tri-bander (20-15-10); (6) a 30 foot tower with a 3-element WARC yagi (12 & 17); (7) an 80-meter dipole between 250 foot tower and 200 foot tower; (8) an 80-meter dipole between 250 foot tower and 140 foot tower; (9) 160 meter sloper hanging from 250 foot tower; (10) an 80 meter bobtail curtain; (11) a full-size 80 meter vertical; and (12) various beverage antennas and 2 meter yagis.  The station was located near Iola, Texas.  

I now live in Arizona.  I often operate remotely using various stations located in New York, Georgia, Maine, Nevada, California, Oregon, Washington, and Arizona.

Additional photos of the Iola, Texas contest station are on the W7RN website at www.w7rn.com (http://www.w7rn.com/welcome-to-the-comstock-memorial-station-w7rn/33-years-in-texas-wa5lesk5rc/radio-iola-k5xi/)

The QSO information loaded into LoTW correctly indicates the QTH of the remote station I used to work you, if I was operating remotely.  If you want a confirmation via eQSL, I must warn you that I find eQSL impossible to use in my situation where I often  operate from multiple locations.  The eQSL website assumes you only operate from one QTH all of the time.  If you change QTHs, each time you do so you have to create a new profile with a different date range for each QTH.  I have remote access to stations at a number of different QTHs, and I may operate from several different remote locations on the same day.  It becomes impossible for me to change eQSL profiles every time I connect to a different remote station.  Even worse, if someone sends in an eQSL before I make the change to the location set in my profile, it will not let me edit my profile to correct the QTH for the eQSL, since I have eQSLs in my inbox for the date range I am attempting to change.  I wasted hours of my time trying to create multiple profiles for different hour ranges each day to try to make every QSO from a different remote location correspond to the correct eQSL profile.  So my current eQSL profile is only correct if I worked you from grid DM09 in Nevada, which covers most of my JT65 QSOs, where I seem to get the most eQSL requests.  If you worked me when I was operating somewhere else and want an eQSL, I am sorry, but if they will ever change their software so it is not so much of a nightmare to use when you operate from multiple locations, I would be able to accurately confirm via eQSL from other locations as well.

The information in LoTW is correct for every QSO.  Unlike eQSL, the software for LoTW easily handles QSOs from different locations on the same date.  So please use LoTW, not eQSL.  If you QSL via LoTW, the information will be correct.
