Thanks, Bill!

TQSL reported this QSO as having been previously uploaded. However, it gave me the option to upload again if there had been a server error – which is what I expected had happened. I did upload my ZD8SC QSO again and in due course it appeared in my LotW list Most Recent QSOs and was properly sync’d by DXKeeper.

It was good to learn that direct TQSL upload gives you the option of overriding the ‘previously uploaded’ notification and allows the upload.
The DXKeeper way to do this is: QSL Config -> LotW -> Permit uploading
of QSOs already uploaded to LotW.

When using DXKeeper to upload to LotW via TSQL, it is reported as a dupe, so I suspect that a stand-alone effort will produce the same result, but worth a shot.

I’ll see what happens and let you know.

Export the QSO the a file. Then use TQSL to upload to LOTW. TQSL will tell you if it’s a dupe or not.

Thanks, Dave. I think the ARRL staff are all working from home at this
point so the help tickets are likely pilling up.

If there isn't a way to 'reset' this log entry, I'll simply create a new QSO
entry and upload that.

I'm interested in learning what state my current QSO record is in and how it
might be set so that it can be uploaded in LotW again.

I think I would start by making a "Help Ticket" to the LOTW desk at ARRL

Tell them you uploaded a QSO that is not in the LOTW log ( give them
the QSO
details) and that your logging software wont let you do it again because
it thinks
it went up. They may be able to manually load it?

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 LotW. 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.
