I've been in this contest for over 30 years without a problem.  Have you ever operated in a contest while in much pain with a broken bone?  You tend to make mistakes you don't make when you are well.

Hi Chris,

I sent MA, the Exchange is your STATE.

Here are the first four lines from my Cabrillo:
QSO: 28021 CW 2021-12-11 0038 W1DYJ         599     MA K1KI            599     CT
QSO: 28423 PH 2021-12-11 0041 W1DYJ            59      MA KC1XX         59      NH

QSO: 28014 CW 2021-12-11 0045 W1DYJ         599     MA W1WEF       599     CT
QSO: 28036 CW 2021-12-11 0050 W1DYJ         599     MA WA1T          599     ME
Here are the lines you sent from yours:
QSO: 28000 PH 2021-12-11 0044 NU1O 59 001 KC1XX 59 NH
QSO: 28000 PH 2021-12-11 0046 NU1O 59 002 W1TJL 59 CT
QSO: 28000 PH 2021-12-11 0047 NU1O 59 003 W1TRK 59 MA
QSO: 28000 PH 2021-12-11 0048 NU1O 59 004 N1LZF 59 MA
Note the "00n" -- you were sending serial numbers somehow.
From the rules:
Exchange: All stations send a signal report. W/VE stations, including Alaska and Hawaii) send their state or province. (District of Columbia stations send “DC”.) Mexican stations send their state or province. DX stations send a serial number. Maritime mobile stations send ITU Region (1-3).
I'm not sure what you can do, as all those you had a Q with you will probably have the serial number in their log.

PS -- I've done this contest for 28 years, and I have never had a problem sending in my log.

Were you in the contest, Larry?  It looks like you are in Eastern Mass.  Did you send Eastern Mass, or just Mass?

Hi Chris,

It looks like you sent a serial number, not MA as your exchange.

I've been in the ARRL 10 meter contest for decades using AC Log.  I've never had this problem submitting my log. Last night I finished the contest and completed a Cabrillo file.  Today I uploaded it to the website given on WA7BNM's contest website.  After uploading I got an error that EVERY single QSO I uploaded was an error.

I think this has to do with the way Massachusetts is broken up on the ARRL's contest upload page.  I am in Western Mass. but during the contest, we don't differentiate between Western and Eastern Mass.  We just give our report as 59 or 599 MA.  Not 59 Western MA or Eastern MA.  At least that's how every station I worked in Massachusetts replied to me when I worked stations in my home state. However, when I upload my Cabrillo file to the ARRL's 10-meter page it is asking me whether I am in Eastern or Western Mass. I enter Western Mass. because that is where I'm located, and I think that's what's causing the error but I have no choice but to enter Western Mass.

However, upon submittal, I am receiving an error for every single QSO.  Here is a copy of my basic info and the first few QSOs that came back from the ARRL's 10-meter upload page.

What the hell am I doing wrong?  I am sitting here with a broken ankle,  I am in a lot of pain and my patience is at an all-time low.  I usually can solve most problems on my own but in the condition,  I am currently in, I'm just not my normal self.  Can anybody offer help?

Thanks,

Chris  NU1O
