DXKeeper - LOTW interaction

Robie
 

Dave,

I experienced the following:

1. I requested a new TQSL certificate since mine was about to expire.  I received the corresponding e-mail however I did not realize the new certificate had arrived. 

2. I uploaded 2 QSOs to LOTW using my old certificate and they did not appear in LOTW

3. I then realized that my new certificate had arrived, loaded it into TQSL and attempted to upload the QSOs again.  I received the following error message:

TQSL Version 2.3.1 [v2.3.1]
Signing using Callsign AJ4F, DXCC Entity UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

All QSOs are duplicates; aborted
No records to upload
Final Status: No QSOs written (8)


4. I did not see the TQSL window open that allowed me to make a selection to upload duplicate QSOs.  Is this behavior correct?

5. I exported the QSOs to an adi file and successfully uploaded them with TQSL.  I received the message regarding submission of duplicates, answered YES and they were processed.

On processing your request for a new Callsign Certificate, LoTW invalidated your previous Callsign Certificate.
3. I then realized that my new certificate had arrived, loaded it into TQSL and attempted to upload the QSOs again. I received the following error message:

TQSL Version 2.3.1 [v2.3.1]
Signing using Callsign AJ4F, DXCC Entity UNITED STATES OF AMERICA

No records to upload

Yes. On the LoTW tab of DXKeeper’s “QSL Configuration” window, there is a box you can check that will direct TQSL to accept already-uploaded QSOs when you next click “Upload to TQSL”. Had you checked this box, your re-submitted QSOs would have been accepted.

Dave,

Thanks for the quick response!


I understood the issue created by the new certificate.

No, the "already uploaded QSOs" option was not checked!  

Thanks again for the great support!

>>>That option is cleared each time you start DXKeeper. You must set it before you use it; this protects LoTW from unnecessary re-submissions.
