Ciao,
sifting through some old QSL cards and checking the RDA I saw that I hadn't uploaded it to "mydx.eu" and so I made some screenshots and sent them via "send scan from PC" ... A real trick, confirmed within a couple of days! I would really like to congratulate Roman and everyone involved in the "RDA program" for their dedication!
Grazie de Giu, IT9VDQ

Re: How to confirm districts with HQSL without RDA written

Iztok Saje
 

Hi Thierry,

as Romain said: when LotW team make RDA available in TQSL and display it in LotW, it will be mandatory.
So treat it as exception based on tradition. I have not looked at it, but I guess LotW accpetance predates both mydx.eu and hamlog.

On the other hand, mandatory rule on RDA entry in HAMLOG helps people pay more atention on entering it.

Back in 2018 I've run in International Grid Chase. 12 one month long contests, and only LotW confirmed QSOs with UL vere valid.
Some 5% do not have UL entry. Similar story. Quite an effort to tell people how to fill up location in TQSL.
Years later there is much less LotW entries without UL.

GE Iztok,

Thanks for sharing your point of view.
I am agree with you that "life is not perfect, errors are made, etc..." and all you wrote.
Rules are rules and I am not the one who made it. If I am not agree, I have just not to chase RDA, and the topic is closed
Anyway, and your wrote it well "Lotw for some reason are accepted without RDA" when HQSL are not, when cfmrda database could be use for both system. For me this is a big inconsistency. And I am not the only one thinking that. That's all.

LotW, for some reason, are accepted withoud RDA: RDA is taken from cfmrda database.
Roman explained this few times.
E-qsl etc is not accepted at all.

Life is not perfect. HAMs are live people.
Some simply do not care. Some hate RDA program, because they have pileups form us hunters.
Some just put something (wrong RDA on hamlog). Some move around and do not update RDA.
Some use old QSL cards with wrong RDA. Some upload withoud /P, /M, /QRP, /0 etc.
(I got few hamlog HQSLs rejected with "operator put wrong RDA on hamlog" exxplanation).

WIth hundreds of russian hunters, inlcuding cfmrda challenge, I hope they will take care.

Sollution for me is simple: work another station from RDA. And another.

As a bonus: LOG uploading opens possibility to have RDA confirmed without QSO. LOGging error etc.
I found few QSOs at time/band when I was not QRV.

Re: How to confirm districts with HQSL without RDA written

The "problem" is only QSL card (paper one) or Hamlog.online QSL i.e HQSL card from Russian stations are accepted if the RDA is indicated. I can understand that because how can you prove that you contacted this RDA ? But there are for me two problem: the first one is that some Russians operator don't fill their RDA on their Hamlog.online account so when a contact is confirmed, these precious info are missing. In my case, I have several RDA worked but I can't confirm because this information is missing. The second problem which more an inconsistency is that LOTW confirmation are accepted to validate RDA but so far, there is NO RDA number on LOTW QSL. So my question is very simple: if there is a possibility to know for the RDA worked (using QRZ.ru or https://cfmrda.ru/#/callsignsRda database) why HQSL with no RDA are not allow to send HQSL card on mydx.eu ? I can't see the difference between HQSL and LOTW ... maybe there is something I miss but without a clearly explanation or point of view, it is .. frustrating !

Re: How to confirm districts with HQSL without RDA written

Good point Rudy !

I checked the HQSL I sent to review, only two of them are their grid square, so for me, it must be enough to accept them to validate a corresponding RDA !
Hope Roman will be able to give his light about that.

FT4 mode problem on HAMLOG.ONLINE

F4GVO
 

Hi folks,

First of all, I do apologize for my following request, I know that this is NOT an HAMLOG.ONLINE  forum but as it is impossible, at least for me, to reach people behind hamlog.online and as many of us, use this online logbook, maybe one of us had the same problem and found a solution.

For a long time ago, I noticed that I have a bunch of QSOs made in FT4 mode who are not HQSL confirmed by the system.
As there are all FT4 QSOs, I notice that all QSO with MFSK (FT4) mode have NO problem but the one with only FT4 have. But it is more complicated, as looking on my HQSL received, I noticed that I have FT4 and MFSK (FT4) QSO confirmed and other FT4 not !
Of course the QSO are uploaded and date, band, time etc.. are a match but not for the system. I don't know where is the problem is and what I can do, if I can do something on my side... maybe the problem is on the worked station and how is logbook deal with FT4 QSO mode ?....

Well any suggestion are really welcome !
Thanks in advance,

73 de Thierry, F4GVO


Re: How to confirm districts with HQSL without RDA written

F4GVO
 

Thanks Roman for your input.

I do understand and I agree with you. For example, in my paper QSL card, my French department  number is well indicated with the mention "DDFM" which is the award name for French departments award BUT I have also added on my HAMLOG profile in the County/Province field. Doing that,  my HQSL card is ok for this specified award. 

I do think, as Rubens wrote about Hamlog.online, the RDA field should be obligatory to fill with their districts for all  Russians stations using Hamlog.

Here is just my to cents to get your "screenshot" from LOTW:
when connected to your LOWT account you go to YOUR QSO. Then on "Call Sign Worked", you put the Russian station you are looking for. Then, click on Submit.
You will have a table with the QSO information. Check the last column named "QSL". Click on the name of the DXCC and when the QSL is displayed on your screen, you must take screenshot, as Rudy wrote, of this QSL. This is file file you must upload then as explained by Rudy.

Hi Ken,



It’s very easy, go to mydx.eu and check on your page ”Send scans from PC”.

You will see; RDA - - -> insert the RDA you want to confirm and upload the file from your PC.

You have to download a screenshot on your PC first from the QSL on LoTW.
