Hi Bob

I guess what I am saying is that today we file our tax returns electronically , make medical appointments and use Amazon / eBay electronically.
Perhaps asking LoTW to consider electronic submissions is reasonable. Anyway just a thought.

Stephen –

 

Just making a photocopy of your amateur operator permit, another photocopy of one other piece of identification, and mailing it to the ARRL does not seem that difficult. 

 

ARRL is not asking for the original documents.

 

Go ahead and join LOTW.  It’s an amazing free service provided by the ARRL.

 

73, Bob – W3YY

Hello

 

This is slightly off topic, for which I apologise. 

 

I have have had many QSOs with North American hams who are members of LoTW. 

Unfortunately I have not been able to log those contacts because LoTW makes it difficult for those of us in Europe to join.

 

I quote:

 

Non US stations will have to send a copy of your radio amateur operator permit and a copy of another identification such as a driver's license, passport or utility bill.

Send to:

ARRL LoTW Administrator
225 Main St.
Newington, CT 06111

Please, no electronic submissions.  This must be postmarked from your location.

 

eQSL allows electronic verification submissions. My personal view is that LoTW should allow this , at least for those of us who live outside of North America.

Regards to all

So I can see what's going on, please do the following:

1. on the General tab of DXKeeper's Configuration window, check the "Log debugging info" box

2. terminate DXKeeper

3. delete the errorlog.txt file in your DXKeeper folder

4. start DXKeeper

5. on the Main window's QSL tab

5a. set the "QSL Via" panel to LoTW

5b. click the "Add Requested" button

5c. click the "Clear" button

6. on the General tab of DXKeeper's Configuration window, uncheck the "Log debugging info" box

7. attach the errorlog.txt file from your DXKeeper folder to an email message, and send the message to me via

aa6yq (at) ambersoft.com

No hardware or software changes that I am aware of I reverted to a previous restore point 10/08/19 last week tuesday with no improvement I also loaded 2 previous issues of DXK with no improvement it seems that the last Sync of Lotw was 10/13/19 I dont recall any errors with the Sync at that time.
one thing I didnt do yet is to go back to a previous WSpace I created a new WS when the error in the DXK headder line had something to do with Contest ? cleared I didnt do anything knowingly to clear it I was verifying the settings on the different config screens in DXK by opening the diffeerent screens and observing the settings looking for something that might or might no be correct

Yes, I am using the bridge with the auto-connect option checked. Starting CWS and then Commander always works.

I also used a test .MDB  with a few records created months ago just to see
if that would produce the same results  just in case it was missing something
in the working DB  but  that did  not change anything

I thought that was missing but the asterisks indicates it comes from the log file when I try to entter in that field I get this
---------------------------
DXKeeper LoTW Configuration
---------------------------
the selected Callsign Certificate specifies Station Callsign ; you cannot specify a different Station Callsign

+ Let's start with "what changes did you make to your DXKeeper LoTW configuration" between the last time you were able to submit QSOs to LoTW and the first appearance of an error message?"

Re: Specific SQL for pursuing WPX Awards

+ AA6YQ comments below

I’m in the process of apply/endorse my WPX award(s) and I am requesting help for a quite complicated (for me), specific SQL(s).

I’m looking SQL that:

For each mode (SSB and DIGI) extract a (or multi) report(s) showing me

1.For SSB: QSOs confirmed in LoTW only and EXCLUDED confirmations by eQSL or card and the already VERIFIED
2 For DIGI: QSOs confirmed in LoTW only and EXCLUDED confirmations by eQSL or card

For MIX mode
3.QSOs confirmed in LoTW only and NOT INCLUDED in the reports above (1+2),


i.e. only the ADDITIONAL QSOs confirmed in LoTW and EXCLUDED *new* confirmations SSB (LoTW only) and confirmation DIGI (LoTW only) and excluded also SSB Verified and SSB + DIGI confirmations by eQSL or card

+ If you specify your WPX award objectives as described in

<https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/WPXAwardObjectives>

+ then you can generate an LoTW-only WPX submission by skipping steps 1, 2, 4, 8, 9, and 10 in

difficulty with LOTW upload

Jon Baker
 

Hi Dave,
I am experiencing difficulty with uploads to LOTW
which seems to be coming from  the setup of DXK 
Config>Log> QSL config >LOTW>TQSL 2.4.7
I brought in a new copy of TQSL 247  and ran the
.msi  file  (Repair)  but that did not correct the problem
I also made copies of the differerent screens and a 
DXK error file,  which has errors with  LOTW 
I am sending them on Ambersoft for your 
insight as to where the problem lies and your direction
on correcting this problem

Re: Spot Collector Notes

+ AA6HQ comments below

When in split mode the notes field cannot be cleared by clicking the "X" clear button. An "X" button should do what it says on the box. But as an aside; as a DX operator it is not useful to have the last worked split frequency broadcast automatically. It simply means the DX station (me) gets inundated and I simply move frequency. It causes more trouble than it is worth.

+ Uncheck "Spot Xcvr split" in the General panel on the Configuration window's General tab.

A quick observation is that if one starts with the first thread presented in Daily Summary and thenceforth moves from one thread to the next via the Next Topic button at the bottom of the thread, one will see every thread in the Daily Summary in it's entirety, but not in the thread order of the email.  When one gets to the last thread in the Daily Summary the Next Topic won't advance you farther, even if there are new messages posted since the Daily Summary.

Thread order in the group seems to be governed by the message number of the last message in the thread (which may be the same as time sequence, but time isn't shown).  I don't know how thread order is determined in the Daily Summary but it is not necessarily the same as when looking at the group of threads.

The answer to my question appears to be either read each thread in the Daily Summary as an individual thread or start with the top thread and use Next Topic until it no longer produces a new thread.
