Re: ADIF Upload Problems

Karl Heinz Kremer - K5KHK - PODXS 070 # 2645
 

Rick, 

as far as I know, nothing has changed on my system. I am uploading just like I did before. I was actually using an older version of RUMLogNG - and had not updated it in a while. I ran a few more tests with exactly the same results, and then updated RUMLogNG to the latest version that I can run on my system (3.12.4), again, with the same results. 

Just for grins and giggles, I created an ADIF file straight from Fldigi, again with the same results. It looks like somebody built a filter into the web server that looks for my call sign and then redirects everything to /dev/null (Unix programmer humor). 

I'll put this aside for a while again and see if it will miraculously start to work in a few weeks or months again. 

Thanks.

Some of us have propagation to DE/RI  and some don’t.   Those within 200-300 miles probably don’t.  That’s the way the old solar flux crumbles !

Happy Thanksgiving to the two of you and Safe Travels.  I'm good on the grids you'll be hitting. Still watching for your log upload to the Progress Checker from your recent west coast trip.  I'll bet you added a ton of grids!

Re: ADIF Upload Problems

Rick - N7WE
 

Karl-
As everyone will tell you, I'm technologically obsolete, so I'm probably the last guy that should be trying to help. But here goes:

When I hit a problem like this, the first question I try to ask myself is:   What changed since the last time it worked?

Couple of possibilities come to mind.

1.  Are you by chance uploading through a different server than previously?  In the past, I have encountered problems with some servers corrupting the ADIF file I was trying to upload.  Particularly had this problem several times when we were on the road and connecting to the internet through servers other than the normal one from when I'm home.  There is supposed to be a way to check what server you're connected to, but that is way beyond me.

2. Have you recently updated (or has there been an automatic update) to RUMlogNG?  Online it shows the several recent releases:
Version 3.12 4/26/18
Version 4.03 10/16/18
Version 4.04  10/29/18
If you have, can you go back to the prior version?  If you haven't, you might try updating to the current version and re-extracting an ADIF file again.

Hope that may help somehow and you get it working soon! 73,

The last upload was all my PSK31 logs. Every single one of them, which means that all the ones that I've gotten credit for are included. Let me see if I can find a weird character in the file... Thanks for the suggestion.

Yeah, so it’s obviously getting the right info, but crashing out on the parsing for some reason.
My gut feeling is there’s a weird character in the input somewhere.

To Matt’s point, I don’t think not including the matching entries is the problem. The fact the Logger info is blank is an indicator it’s not parsing correctly.

Re: ADIF Upload Problems

Karl - does the file that you're uploading contain the records that earned you the awards already in your trophy case? The endorsement checker does not keep those records on file. You have to submit your ENTIRE PSK-31 file every time you run the checker. That COULD be why you'r seeing zeroes in the blue box, but doesn't explain why we're not seeing the logger info and why we are seeing a "zero" record count on the detail page. 

Just a heads' up and an idea.....

Correct number, but no information about ADIF version or logger:



And that's what it shows when I click on my call sign:

Re: ADIF Upload Problems

Checked checker and see that today’s up load worked as David said. 

 

Now all you have to do is upload ALL your PSK31 QSO’s like that.  Remember that you must upload the total PSK31 QSO’s every time you upload.  Just load the last few QSOs will create errors.

Re: ADIF Upload Problems

Karl:

 

I had some problems in the past, but they disappeared after a while.

 

Using MixW3.2 which I upload to ACLog 5.2.  From there I use ACLog to create an .adi file which I upload to the checker at 070. This has worked well for me for the past few years.  Not exactly sure why the checker has singled you out, but am sure that it will be resolved once David gets involved ()he’s very busy workwise and helping with twins and probably has very limited time).  Be patient and this will get resolved in time.

Jerry, 

I understand that there could be a number of reasons on my end, and I think by now I've ruled out anything I could be doing wrong: I am waiting long enough for my short test files to be processed. I am not trying to upload thousands of records, I am using about 10 to 50 for my tests - I've even used just one. I've tried it often enough that we can rule out a problem with competing uploads - at least some of them should have gone through without problems if that is what was causing my problems (and I've never had a problem with competing uploads before, when the uploads actually were successful). I've fixed all the errors that the ADIF parser complained about - even though these errors were in the data that I already successfully uploaded before. And, I can see that uploads by others contain the same type of errors, and their data is actually there. 

At this point, I am pretty sure that somebody needs to take a look on the server to see what's going on. 

Also, Harry's story (K9HW) sounds just like mine, so it does not seem to be an isolated problem. Maybe I just have to wait a few more months and it will miraculously start to work again :) 

I did send an email to David (KJ4IZW) about this problem a couple of weeks before I posted here, but have not heard back from him. 

I'll just collect my logs and try to upload them every now and then, hoping that eventually it will work again. 

Thanks and 73

Matt, 

the LOTW file was just another desperate attempt at seeing what's going on. I know that by using RUMLogNG I am in a minority, and I just wanted to rule out any potential problem with that logging application. That's why I went to LOTW, downloaded a whole bunch of logs (roughly covering the time I've been using PSK31) and gave it a try - with the same results. 

I'll upload a "real" log file with just PSK31 QSOs in a minute.

Thanks for looking into this.

Re: ADIF Upload Problems

Hey, Karl - unfortunately, your problem is not unique. This sort of thing has happened before, though it's not widespread.

The other unfortunate thing is that I'm having difficulty getting in touch with David myself. I don't think we'll be able to get his assistance for a while, unfortunately.

I tried re-running your 938 record file that you just uploaded with my admin tool, but it made no difference.

I notice that you're using an ADIF file generated by LOTW. Can you try your primary logger's file, by chance? Hopefully it'll behave differently (though I don't know why it should - I'm just trying whatever I can think of) with an HRD, FLDigi, etc.... file.

Keep me posted, please!

Re: Daylight Savings Time and Smoke Alarms

Jerry N9AVY
 

Thought I’d add  my 2 cents worth on smoke alarms.

 

Having worked in alarm industry the past 47 years, I’ve read countless articles which pretty much say that “if your smoke detector is around 10 years old, it has a 50% chance of working.”   This is specific to the home type smoke detectors which are still very cheap as compared to commercial units. 

 

As for CO detectors they are also good for about 10 years , but I’ve had customers ask me to replace them around 5 years. 

 

As with many products, price is a key point, but with those $5-10 smoke detectors they are built cheaply so they can make a greater profit.  With minimal parts their reliability decreases because some of the higher reliability circuitry is missing. Few of us will remember people  like  “Madman Muntz” from the 1950’s who built TV’s with minimal parts and sold them on the cheap.

 

Smoke detectors and CO detectors are both vulnerable to dust and blowing them out every couple years may help to extend their usefulness.  However, those near cooking areas may get a grease buildup from cooking gease in the air and may need early replacement.

 

Smoke detectors do save lives. Have seen it work when one of the early Captain Kelly units went off and got the family out of a burning house before the FD arrived.  The FD told me that if not for the smoke detector the family wouldn’t have survived.

All my smoke alarms have 10-year lithium batteries installed. However, they still need to be tested periodically. The lithium batteries are more expensive, but you won't have to change batteries as often, so they are a good value. It is important that you record the date of installation so you do not go beyond the 10 years.

 

Also do not forget to test your carbon monoxide alarms as well and replace batteries as needed. As we go into the winter months with doors and windows sealed and furnaces and fireplaces in use, the chances of CO poisoning increases. CO detectors are required in or just outside every bedroom. Combination fire/CO alarms are available. Be sure you have a CO detector in the laundry room as well if you use a gas-fired dryer as blocked or restricted exhaust pipe can cause exhaust to back up into the room.

 

Stay safe my friends.

Daylight Savings time ends tonight at 2 AM local for most of the United States.  Remember that your local offset to UTC also changes!

Fire Marshals and Public Safety Officials recommend that you use this date to change the batteries and test all of your smoke alarms - particularly if you have "hard wired" smoke alarms as required in new construction since 1989.  They will test fine with the power on, but a Flat Backup Battery = Worthless!  They also report that while on the average 7 people die in a house fire every day, the risk of dying in a house fire is cut in half in homes with functioning fire alarms.
