Re: Frustration with QRZ

W5MMW Matt Manjos

Interesting. A few days ago, I noticed that my details & bio set up for W5MMW/VE3 were deleted.

I logged a ticket asking if I had done something wrong or broke a rule or something but was told that "there has never been a W5MMW/VE3 page." Despite all of the work I put into laying it out, uploading photos, etc: it was gone.

I had to recreate it last night. Hopefully it doesn't get bulk deleted again just like how it looks your VB7150 page also expereinced.

Well, I am probably the youngster  here (no disrespect,  i mean one of the newest hams in the group ) but isn't it somewhere in the FCC regs that all operators are supposed to keep a log of all activity?  Does the FCC excuse that requirement if the contact is not listed on the stations preferred 3rd party website?  My guess is no....

There are some people who have had their QRZ info removed upon request  or by QRZ  for being naughty.

Subject: [070] Frustration with QRZ

Well frustration hits again.

QRZ access has been spotty for a couple days. Also they have managed to lose 
my VB7150 page altogether, creating problems when contacts try to confirm my identity. 
This has been reported to QRZ support and it has been "Dispatch Ticket to HQ".
Yes I am a paid up supporter.

I had the pleasure of working a new, to me, member only to be told -

"I don't log any body not in Zed. Maybe you should fix the QRZ 
record for your call.  I am not an official observer."

I tried to explain I was OK but due to QRZ's issues he would not log the contact. Hope all 
Florida hams don't think that QRZ is the absolute definitive reference when it comes to 
determining station legitimacy.
