I fairly frequently get SWL reports via eQSL. I'm never quite sure what I should do with them. I know that eQSL has SWL capabilities, but I can never tell if I'm actually stating that a contact was one way, or two ways. What should I do? Here's the text, with the call changed (#= number, *= letter).

You just confirm them like you do regular contacts (check them and move to archive). The text on regular contacts states, "This confirms our 2-way SSB QSO", so since the text on SWL contacts, it's all good.

The To line in the details will include a phrase something like "Confirming SWL reception of JT65 QSO". If you see something like that, then you know you can correctly mark it, assuming that the contact info is in your log, of course.
