Two of the best examples of an invalid entry are 2 callsigns I ran across from Florida (USA):  I won't call them out here, but they list their IOTA as OC-158  (Florida Islands in the Pacific).

I don't know which logging program picks up the IOTA data from QRZ, but if there is a way to turn that specific field off (doubt it), please do.

There are a ton of bad entries in QRZ.
HRD gathers them in. I keep an eye on
my log and double check every IOTA entry.

I am sorry I am missing all the fun.  

I have been down for several weeks, caused by a case of flu/slight pneumonia.  It has taken all my strength away, and recovery has been slow.  

It caused to miss the Pumpkin sprint, which I had been looking forward to operate with a new antenna.

Have fun guys,

Jim K5SP

It's fun chasing endorsements.  I made a spreadsheet of the hours I've already worked and can see which ones I need now easier.   A simple 24 X7 grid works well.
I have one for my 366 also and see I have 6 months completed. One date (12th) needed in Nov and Dec 18, 27,28, and 29 to get me done until the end of the year.  Lots of Jan dates which I usually miss due to travel.  Might get them in 2021 due to travel restrictions.

Alan's ka5vzg scheme to pick off these ugly mid-nite hours is working FB for me. And Bob, you are doing a fine job of keeping us on track. I'll be with you for another week at least. I need every day 08:00 and 09:00

And I do need 10:00 on Oct. 20 to 24. Hopefully I can find somebody willing to get up early or stay up late.

Great fun!!

Had two new additions to our early morning 24/7 Endorsement meets. Glad to see Dave KB3RAN and Sam KM6UGZ. Forty meters seemed to be better for me than 80 meters. This weeks meet time is 06:45 - 07:15 UTC. I normally try to start early about 06:30 UTC. Hope to see you on the waterfall.

IOTA invalid entry on QRZ.com #iota

In your case, Bob; I have an entry for KF3AA, so it looks like your upload was successful. What, exactly, are you seeing that makes you think it didn’t work?

Barry, what are you seeing? I do NOT see an upload entry for yours, so something is definitely off in your case, but I need screenshots, error output, etc to see what’s going on.

Tonight, later...WEEK TWO starts Monday 10/12 for hour slots 0600Z and 0700Z

 

6KMU, 9SMR, 5VZG, 4VBM and all interested... It's my intent to be on 40m and/or 75m tonight as long as necessary.
I'll be clicking on traces to see if I can add some Q's to my LONP total.
I'll also have the "Chat" utility running. If y'all see openings on other bands, just tell me know.
Hey, if you need W6QP, 070-1454, for your LONP, let me know and I can work you with that call also.
I'm looking forward to seeing everybody there.

Come on down !! :-)

There have been three of us KK6KMU/Bob in CA, K4VBM/Bob in GA, and me KA5VZG/Alan in TN who have made it every slot so far.
I have been starting on 3.580 between xx30-xx45.  CA-Bob, KK5KMU has been covering 7.070 initially, and GA-Bob, K4VBM has been initially floating
so both 40m and 80m should be covered, check the Chat because we all usually post our intentions.
Usually one of us will spot the trace on the waterfall, if we can't decode, maybe the others can.  If your getting no response post a note on the Chat and
we will make an effort to get you. We can try other bands. I know K4VBM worked a few on 160m last week.  CA-Bob can pick up a lot that the rest of us can't decode
because he is so far west. 
Check in and make sure we find you.  It only takes two to make a QSO and we will make sure the right two meet.
