logging issue


Jeffrey griffin
 

 

Yesterday afternoon I experienced a computer hard drive failure.  I had to revert to a backup drive that was almost a year old. I got dxlab running with a copy of my log from yesterday. This appeared to be working well, except I can’t upload anything to LoTW. I get a ‘no QSO’s were processed because some QSO’s were duplicates or invalid’ error. I had about 20 QSO’s in the Queue to be uploaded. I get the error trying to upload them. But I then noticed another issue, I made several QSO’s this morning and when I try to upload them separately they fail with the same error. I tried to use just a copy of the main mdb file, and I also tried to replace the entire databases directory, with the same result. I’m at a loss on how to fix this. Anything I can try?

On a one time basis ...

QSL Tab -> QSL Config (button) -> LotW tab ... check
the "Permit uploading of QSOs already uploaded to LotW" box.

Note this setting will clear itself after uploading to LotW.

I found my problem. I just noticed that my callsign cert was from the year old disk and I see that it has expired. I had with me, a current copy of my p12 file, a simple matter to update the LoTW certificate. Thanks for your suggestion Joe, I'm sure I will find a use for that in the future. I'm also sorry for all the confusion, I'm in the middle of moving to Florida for the winter and had a bad day yesterday. First I find my Alpha Delta DXCC Plus dipole I leave up for a remote station I operate here from my winter home, came down in some wind we had the other night. Broke the plastic mounting tab in the center. Then last night I had the computer hard drive failure. Were now finally back to packing up...

Interesting ... I would have expected tQSL/DXKeeper to have complained
about an invalid certificate in that case.
