Re: 070 Award Checker log errors


Stephen Melachrinos
 

I just want to temper that a little.

Most people upload their entire logs every time. That makes it simpler, as most people use loggers that can export the entire ADIF in one shot. (One note: you really should only export PSK31 QSOs, as those are the only ones that matter to us. Including non-PSK QSOs makes the files bigger, and slows down processing.)

But the real rule is that you MUST upload all the QSOs you need FOR THE ENDORSEMENT you are trying to achieve. Each upload overwrites your previous upload, so you can't do incremental uploads. But you CAN upload:

- Just the QSOs with 070 members for LONP credit
- Just the QSOs with key grid squares for the grid endorsements
- Just the QSOs with Australian stations for Worked All Oz
- A single QSO with a legit KL7 station for Alaska
etc

But if you do this, you can't upload another file until that particular endorsement is awarded. Otherwise the endorsement czar (Jerry) won't see the supporting data and will reject it.

So like I said, most people just upload their entire PSK log. But there may be some special circumstances for which the ability to do partial uploads makes makes sense. It can be done, but you have to understand the process to do it correctly.

Every time you upload your log to the checker it MUST BE ENTIRE LOG.  Partial uploads will not work. 

Using N3FJP  I upload only PSK31 QSOs because I have other modes in N3FJP.

Don't know about DXCC (DX stations ) .  

Am sure others will be able to offer better help.

Good Afternoon/Evening!
I tried to find answers, but I was probably searching with the wrong keywords.
As new guy, I immediately uploaded my scrawny log file (from FLDIGI) and noticed there were 7 records with DXCC errors (None of the 65 records in my logfile had the DXCC field defined/populated).  As an old IT guy, errors bother me... a lot :)
  1. How do I correct those errors?  Create new ADI file and re-upload (see #2 below) and what does that do the processing & existing database records?
  2. Should I be extracting/uploading my log from N3FJP (I use QRZ to populate missing grid data)?  I believe the answer is yes based on fields required for awards.
  3. Going forward, do I upload a complete log each time or incremental since last upload?
Want to get off to relative good start and not create extra load on the server.
Thank you for your help and patience
