Re: Turn off Auto-Upload to LoTW

Going into SpotCollector config and simply unchecking LotW for WSJT-X as the Spot Source, solved the problem. Couldn't be simpler.

Now, at the end of an operating session, I simply go to the QSL tab of DXKeeper and click on "Add Requested". That populates the QSL Queue and then click on   Upload to LotW...done.

I only looked for disabling auto-upload to LoTW (for WSJT-X), because LotW has been up and down like a yo-yo for the last week...and some of the outages have been hours. These outages have not been universal, but affected sections of the USA. Both Iowa and Texas experienced the same one on two different occasions.

That works but I think you then have to import your log to DXKeeper and then do the add requested and such. I think there is a way to log to DXKEEPER but not upload and then you have it in the log and can do the QSL sequence later. On the other hand I have had very little trouble with the real tie upload and it does it to other logbooks like eqsl etc. too.

Found it...testing now


Automatically Uploading QSOs Logged via WSJT-X to LoTW

With WSJT-X directly interoperating with DXLab, to enable WSJT-X to automatically upload a QSO to LoTW when you click the OK buton in the WSJT-X Log QSO window, check the LotW box in the WSJT-X panel on the Spot Sources tab of SpotCollector's Configuration window.

It's got to be staring me right in the face, but I'm missing it.


I found how to turn it off in the Capture Screen, but how do you turn it off for when WSJT-X logs a qso and DXKeeper accepts it.


I'm finding that LoTW is very unreliable. It is up and down several times per day (confirmed by others) and that slows down the software, so I want to turn off auto-upload and then at then of a session, I can simply go to the qsl tab and click on "Add Requested" and the Queue is loaded ready to go.
