New ham here. Is it common practice and acceptable to submit net logs as QSOs to QRZ, eQSL, LoTW, etc?

One person told me they log other's callsigns checking in to a net they're participating in and submit them as QSOs.

Another person told me they only log and submit only the net control operator as a QSO.

Which is correct?

Thanks in advance.

If you called them, and they called you, that's a QSO. There are some nets arranged specifically to facilitate working a bunch of different people (like WAS nets).

If you didn't address a transmission specifically to them, or they didn't address a transmission specifically to you, that's no QSO and I wouldn't consider it loggable.

    $\begingroup$ That's what I figured as well. Logging everyone checking in just sounded....off. $\endgroup$ – Mac Jun 13 at 8:34
