What is the B?

I thought I already said this, but I have done both, download and  upload!

The L still isn't there.  The L shows in "Rec Conf By" AFTER it is confirmed on LOTW.  That doesn't fix
"Sent Conf By"
This only happens on random QSOs.

I have spent hours last year and in January "fixing" records, one at the time by manually adding the "L". 

It is a bug in ACLog.

Once again, in ACL LoTW screen, download using “All Since.”  If the records you uploaded were good, it will then put an L in the sent box.

Let me start this thread all over with all the information I have to date.

When I got up this morning, I opened ACL and uploaded all new contacts to LOTW.
(No, I didn't have any new contacts to upload, but I do this twice a day.)

As you see in the picture, I clicked "All Contacts Not Uploaded" and got an error on KT2TJD's QSO.
(Ironically, he's also my neighbor. )

The error "Already Uploaded" pops up.

When I ignore, I get the following message:
ACL is trying to upload QSOs already uploaded.
Why is ACL uploading uploaded QSOs???

Here is why:
This is one of the offending records (see image above):
Notice that there is no "L" in the box indicating that it was uploaded to LOTW? 
When I search for Keith's call in my log, ACL shows QSLs sent for all of his contacts.

Then I pull up an older record that has already been sent and confirmed by LOTW:
(Same ham, different date):

The "L" is in the records ACL is NOT trying to upload to LOTW:

For me to fix it, I have to find all records without an "L" and add the "L" manually
one record at the time.

It is my theory, that ACLog does not always add the "L" to records it uploads to LOTW. 
This indicates that ACLog has a bug that needs to be fixed, not LOTW (well, at least not this bug.)

But your failed entry here shows SSB.  Was it an FT-8 and you inadvertently put SSB in the log entry?

I've done that before, but this happened a lot when I was using FT8, which is automatically updated from my software reading the radio.

Even if I did, it sends LOTW the errors.

Do your record entries show a 40 Meter Frequency when it was a 40 Meter contact?  I know that on occasion I forget to change one or the other when I change bands.

Yes, several times. Just before taking that screen shot, too.

Have you done an "all Since" Download?

After sending this original message, I discovered that the offending records did not get the "L" added to the Sent conf by box:

Notice that I am only uploading contacts already uploaded. 


So the problem I see is that the "L" isn't being added to the Sent Conf By box when I upload them to LOTW.

I get the above message for various log entries every time I upload to LOTW.

I don't know why this occurs every time.  If I have uploaded it, why is trying to upload it?

In my case, the uploaded LOTW files aren't all marked as being uploaded.  Since they are uploaded, can we have an option to mark all uploaded as "L" when the bug shows up?
