LOTW upload

Post by N9CDM » 20 Jul 2019, 00:50

Hi folks,

Setting up LOTW upload in a new install of Log4OM and I get "Error: The selected station location could not be found" (see attachment). Not sure what location this refers to as the Locator info is present in the QSO log. Any help appreciated.

Hi Charles,

The Station Location error is referring to the Station Location selected in the TQSL information section of your screen shot. Its your location assigned to your Callsign Certificate with LotW. This location must match exactly with the station location in your TQSL installation. Just confirm they match, or make them match.

If in doubt, export a few contacts in ADIF format which you want to upload then try uploading them directly with TQSL. If it does not work there, it won't work via Log4OM, and you need to sort out the issue with the LotW desk.

Let us know if that helps solve the issue. 73,

You need to ensure that the information about Station ID (Location) is correct in the Log4OM options/External logs form, it should match the station location in the TQSL program.


Also be aware that special characters are not acceptable like !"£$%^&*_-)({}[]:@~#<>/\

Thanks OMs. Nail on head. I'm running Log4OM on a new machine and forgot that I needed a new certificate for that machine. All's well... 73, Charles
