DXCC credits consolidation and tracking

Bo W4GHV
 

I shouldn't mention this here but still hope there is a solution.
I use the good ol' ACL and try to keep up with my DSCC credits, QSLs, etc. 
But getting it and LOTW or CLULOG to agree is impossible.

I thought LOTW contacts automatically went toward your DXCC certificate, but I did something there and it cost me $36 to get some credits. A fee and 10 cents per credit.
Anxious to see if that bumps up my credits.
Keeping track of the paperwork is a chore. Mailing DX QSLs & $, sending to the bureau, etc 

Some like the HRD logger. Is it any good? If so I'll import ACL into it periodically to 'balance the budget'
Help appreciated.

That number seems high.  Even with the pandemic.  Usually only about 7-8K for each of the contests.  Total a little under 20k combined.

10k would be more believable.

Jerry,

The LoTW Log Queue shows a 10 hour backlog in processing logs as of this afternoon. There were over 19k logs in the que.

Perhaps not, there was a backlog of 5-6 hours in LOTW right after the SSB Sweepstakes. I would say to try again in a while.

GA Scott,

 

This morning after I had done my processing for the CQWWCW contest, I started up the N3FJP logging software to upload the ADIF file. Much to my surprised, the program presented itself as a “newly installed program in that I had to provide a password (which I had) and then do the setup. It also created a brand-new empty database.

 

Since I use Microsoft’s file History program, it was not difficult to jump back to Nov. 27th and download the files. There all seem quite well and I uploaded the ADIF file with no problems. I then opened the LOTW in your software and did an update. I waited until late this afternoon and did a query on LOTW expecting 400+ entries to be returned with the “Sent” value to be a “Y”. But nothing came back. Tried several times even changing the QSO RX DATE and still no joy. The following is what I did received.

Re: ACLog - Net and Round Table Manager

A long time ago, I warned Scott against creeping featurism which he chose to ignore.  I guess that's because Scott is a much nicer person than I.

If you want a Custom Net Log in which you can order, edit, and include any fields you want, I suggest using a spreadsheet program, e.g., M$Excel or Open/Libre Office Calc,
Then, if you want to import your spreadsheet into ACLog, these instructions provide a step by step procedure for converting your spreadsheet to ADIF format.

TWO caveats: 
  1. If you DO want to import your net log into ACLog, you must use FIELD NAMES identical to ACLog.
  2. The procedure is one way.  It doesn't provide for extracting prior sessions back to your spreadsheet.  (That's what File|Save is for.)   I don't believe ACLog will do that either but I've only  used the Net log feature one time to try it shortly after it was first introduced.

If you need individual assistance, please contact me OFF LIST.  Use the subject "Spreadsheet Net Log".

The robot would not accept my cabrillo file generated by the contest log (v5.8). I had to create adif file and use their log converter. Kept saying my mode (CW) and contest (CQ-WW-CW) did not match. It was correct, but the robot would not accept it.
