I have had this happen twice in the last 3 days:
I am set for auto-upload to LoTW.
LoTW on their end went down
Error msg in DXK asking try again or not?
I say yes, and it does same (as they were down for hours)
More qsos, so I start answering NO to try again.
Now I have 10 qsos in the log that need to be uploaded to LoTW
I have to manually move them (right click on log entry and select Add Entry to QSL Queue (LoTW) one at a time into the QSL Queue.
+ No, you don't have to manually add QSOs to the QSL Queue one at a time, but procedure for re-uploading them depends on their state.
+ Scenario 1: If their "LoTW QSL Rcvd" items are still set to 'R', then they weren't actually uploaded, so
1. on the Main window's QSL tab,
1a. set the "QSL Via" panel to LoTW
1b. click the "Add Requested" button (populates the QSL Queue with all QSOs whose "LoTW QSL Rcvd" items are set to 'R'
1c. click the "Upload to LoTW" button
+ Scenario 2: If their "LoTW QSL Rcvd" items are set to 'U', then TQSL reported them as uploaded to LoTW, in which case the procedure is
1. on the "QSL Configuration" window's LoTW tab, check the "permit uploading of QSOs already uploaded to LoTW" box
2. click the LoTW button in the Filter panel at the bottom of the Main window's "Log QSOs" tab, which filters the Log Page Display to contain all QSOs uploaded to LoTW but not yet accepted by LoTW
3. on the Main window's QSL tab,
3a. set the "QSL Via" panel to LoTW
3b. click the "Add all" button (adds all QSOs in the Log Page Display to the QSL Queue)
3c. click the "Upload to LoTW" button
Now, I keep adding qsos as DXK keeps giving the same error (others haven't uploaded yet).
It turns out that I had to stop and restart DXK to get it to upload the pending qsos (in the qsl window).
+ On the Main window's QSL tab, set the "QSL Via" panel to LoTW, click the Clear button, and then click the "Add Requested" button.
