Re: Awards Checker

I’m with you, Steve. I tried a bit of the same thing last night after I emailed you the file. I didn’t get as far with it as you did, but agree that something is amiss.

Thinking back, the checker *MAY* have given me an error the first time I tried to upload last night. Perhaps something hiccupped and somehow corrupted my existing record during that initial upload process.

I’m sure David will figure it out. Thanks for having a look.

73,

Jerry -

I stripped down Mike's ADIF to three QSOs, all PSK31, and with only the five ADIF fields required. And it still didn't work. (He should have gotten credit for at least one day in 365 and three hours in 24.x7, but nada.)

Something funny is going on.

A few years ago Matt suggested that when I upload to checker that I separate all non-PSK31 QSOs from the .adif file. With ACLog that is very easy to do and I've been doing that ever since.

I didn't check Mike's logs throughly, I usually just go in and check for sticker related stuff. That's pretty much the xtent of my ventures into files. Had I done anything further into files today it might have been disasterous (today I had a case of "the reverse midas touch". Doing anything technical would have been bad.

Regardless of whether Mike has more than 1300 QSOs, the checker is showing no credit at all towards any endorsement or award--nothing for WTW, nothing for LONP, nothing towards any endorsement, nothing towards 365 or 24x7. You (and anyone else) can see this by clicking on Mike's callsign. This indicates to me that something is wrong with the current upload.

I tried reading the report that the checker generates, but I can't see anything that would DQ every QSO. There are a lot of non-PSK31 QSOs in the file (a lot of FT8 and some RTTY and SSB), but there are definitely some PSK31. There are some errors that are pervasive (100% of records have a contest field, 99% have a QSLSCB field, 99% have a SPCNUM field, 60% have a QSLRCB field) but I don't know if these are enough to make all the entries unusable. After all, the report also says that 100% of the entries have all the required fields included (Call, Band, Mode, Date, Time_On).

Mike: Have you tried looking at the ADIF yourself (in a text file viewer) to see if it's being properly formed?

Mike:

I see you have about 1300 Q's , did you have more ??? I hope you're uploading your entire log every time you upload.

Otherwise, there may be a glitch some where.

Anyone else having issues with the Award Checker tonight? I just uploaded my log and it zeroed out all my award totals and shows zero awards in-progress.
The first page shows the correct number of QSOs but the 2nd page shows zero.
Tried numerous uploads and exported the ADIF file several times.
