Re: QRZ Error Message

Hi Guys,

If QRZ times out, it is not necessary to close AC Log to reconnect.  Just close the error message, tab through the call field again with a valid call and AC Log will automatically reconnect.

I never log out of QRZI just “red X” out to close the program.  That way, ACL is always able to bring up the other stations info

Sorry my tracking is not that detailed.  It’s just frustrating when you’re in a hurry and you want to look up QSL info on a rare one and QRZ won’t give you the address until you log on.  You then log on and figure that’s the end of it but a couple of days later you have to logon again.

Good morning Pat.
Have you noticed or can you look back and see how long it was since the previous entry when this happened?  That just might be interesting to know.  I suspect it is something like 12 hours, but I don’t think I’ve ever experienced it twice on one day, so my log wouldn’t show something like that.
Have a GREAT day sir.

Glad I’m not the only one having problems with QRZ.   My issue is I have to log on to QRZ more often than I would like.  I can understand being forced to logon maybe twice a year but more than that is a pain in the a**.  I’ve been keeping track of it and here is my experience in the last two months:
QRZ Login
8/06/19 – Twice
9/15/19 – Twice
A little much in my opinion.
Also I my subscription is paid up unitl 5/31/2020 and I really don’t use QRZ all that much.

Morning Paul.
I get the same error.  I am not certain if the computer going to sleep has as much to do with it as the time elapsed since the last QRZ database access.  I get this error early in the morning after sleeping all night, but I sometimes get it after logging the local 80m guys at 5-am, then late in the afternoon making another contact.  It seems if I make several contacts spread through-out the day (like SOTA chasing) that the database is “kept alive” by the periodic use.  The computer often goes to sleep between entries, but the error only appears after a prolonged sleep.  I’ve not bothered to try to time it.
What frustrates me more is this.  I have a computer dedicated to logging and digital.  I’ve told that computer to “Remember”
my credentials for QRZ.  But every now and then it forgets something and I have to manually log into QRZ again.  That doesn’t happen real often.  Not even monthly.  But even once is more than I intended.  I use strange passwords, and I don’t trust password management programs, so when it does this I have to look it up every time.
I’ll leave you with this.  To err is human….. but to really foul things up takes a computer.
Have a SUPER day.

Is this error as a result of my computer going to "sleep"

"There was an error accessing the QRZ internet database. Session Timeout."

Or is there some other explanation?
