In the 1.31.00 release.... is this the fix for the LOTW download issue: "Added checks to WAS import in order to try fixing non coherent data for USA, Alaska and Hawaii." ?

Hi all,

I updated to the last release and I still have something with a "DC" station. It appears like state number 51, as "DC // District of Columbia" on the state field and "DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA" on the County field. It appears with the same red box (NOT FOUND) as it did on last version with the other states. Any comment about it?

Thanks!

It appears that this version (1.31) fixed all of my state entries. Thanks!!

That is not a Log4OM or LotW Problem. It´s a problem of the Callsign Owner which write "DC" as a State in qrz.com or other
online services. The same appears for the DXCC U.S. Virgin Islands when those Users write "VI" in the state field.

DC is not a state of the United States and VI also is not one, but those wrong inputs at qrz & co. will force this problem.

An example:

If i go to qrz or hamqth and fill "RP" (for Rhineland Palatinate" in the state field you will have an unknown state more in the
WAS statistics. It´s outside of the United States (as VI for Virgin Islands is too) but it will be shown as "Unknown" in the WAS
Stats ...

;) ;)

Log4OM fixes only states in usa, Alaska and Hawaii that have a valid state in the was.csv reference file. Everything else it's managed as unrecognized and Log4OM doesn't touch data it doesn't perfectly know

So, I am assuming DC (which is a weird one) just needs the state removed and save it?

So I had many entries that had this problem. I corrected many, manually. I just updated to 1.31.1 Will this fix all the remaining ones automatically, or only new entries looking forward?

Which issue are you refering to the change of syntax by LOTW or the recording of incorrect stat information like DC?
