Re: Can't upload 10 meter log to server. Error

Chris,

 

Export the file as an ADIF from the incorrect program.  Bulk-edit the incorrect data in ADIF-Master.  Save the ADIF.  Import the corrected ADIF to the correct program.  Export the Cabrillo file.  Done.

Note:  You could do it in a text editor too.  But miss one period, make one wrong character, and you ruin the whole file.  ADIF-master doesn’t let you screw it up that way.

Good luck!

I wish it was that easy, Scott, but when I imported the log from the DX version into the US version the format was wrong.  Looks like I'll have to edit each entry unless you have a better solution.

Hi Chris,

 

Thanks for your e-mail.  There are two versions of the 10 Meter contest software.  One is for US / Canada / Mexico, who send states / provinces and the other is for DX, who send serial numbers.  You logged with the DX version of the software instead of using the US / Canada / Mexico version.

 

Go ahead and and install the correct version (topmost link)( and create your Cabrillo file:

 

 

Enjoy!

 

73, Scott

My best guess is I didn't enter MA in the setup page.  However, I'm forgetting a lot and not sleeping so I have no idea what happened with 100% reliability.  Right now I'm thinking about selling all the equipment and finding some other hobby.  This is very frustrating.

Yeah Chris, sorry.  If you can find a metal coat-hanger, cut it apart, loop one end in about a 6-inch hot-dog shape to form a handle.  Bend a tight loop on the other end, and put some heat shrink of wrap it with electrical tape, and you use it to poke down inside the cast to scratch the itch.  It is important that no sharp end is exposed, you do not want to bleed inside the cast.

To keep it ham radio related, if you can’t find a metal coat hanger, perhaps you have the whip section of an old antenna?

I do not recommend dipping the tip of the hanger into any type of anti-itch cream to poke down there, it gets the inside of the cast really messy after a couple of weeks.

Look at the bright side.  Time to look at what contests are coming up, brush up on your CW, start chasing SOTA summits and POTA parks.  And in the evenings, tune in to 5.085 MHz, a good SW station playing lots of oldies.  That is one of the SW stations I turn to (along with Radio Habana Cuba, I like Latin Jazz) when we are out camping.

Sorry for your situation.  Whatever you did to make this happen, don’t do that again!

 

Mike.

So, I can look forward to perpetual itching.  Thanks a million, Mike.  You just made my day!  :-)

In each case below, it seems that QTH is causing the error.  The only thing I see is in each of the 4 QSO files you have below, their QTH is a 2-letter abbreviation on all.  I am not familiar with the divisions of every state, but Texas for example would be NTX for North Texas, STX for South Texas, and WTX for West Texas, much as you say EMA or WMA.

Not sure this is any help.  I’d like to say I feel your pain, but I don’t.  I have had broken bones in a previous life, so I get it.  Eventually the pain of the break subsides.  But then the itching inside the cast takes over.  And that is nearly as maddening!  I hope you find some relief.

Subject: [N3FJPSoftwareUsers] Can't upload 10 meter log to server. Error

 

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,
