Thanks, Joe. I used TSQL to correct the issue, but I have noted your method and
will check out what happened with the initial upload.

Log into LotW on the web ... click "Your Account" in the top menu then
select "Your Activity" in the left hand menu. You can then select
"Result" for your last upload which will tell you how many QSOs were
uploaded, processed, etc. It will also tell you if there were any
errors. You can compare that with your last upload.

Hi All,

I have created a puzzlement for myself, and I'd like so guidance on
how to solve it.

I logged ZD8SC last night on 20M FT8 and uploaded that log record to
LotW as the last one in a batch of logged QSOs. I like to keep
current with
All processed normally.

After a few minutes I checked to see if the latest batch of logged QSOs had
been updated in LotW and they appeared to have been. In DXKeeper I
performed 'Sync LotW QSOs', then 'Sync LotW QSLs'. All seemed to go well.

When I revisited LotW and looked at the results of the 'Most Recent QSOs' I
discovered that the ZD8SC QSO was not in the list. In DXKeeper that log
entry's LotW Send = U, so DXKeeper marked it as uploaded.

I thought I could fix this be simply editing the ZD8SC log entry to
LotW Send = R and uploading to LotW again. But DXKeeper reports
that QSO is a dupe.

LotW has been having some problems lately, so perhaps my ZD8SC QSO
is in some sort of processing limbo.

I would appreciate some guidance on how to resolve my dilemma.
