Happens to all of us eventually.  My forte is starting a FB message and before I finish I hit RETURN and then have to continue message as Part 2 !!!   :-)

P.S.  If you look in checker you'll see "N9AVVY" ... finger sat too long on "V"  !

Jim -

I saw that too, but those are not fatal errors. Look at the last file I uploaded of my own:


I have similar errors there and the file processed successfully. 

The crazy thing is that those errors are on line numbers that don't exist in the file (of Mike's) I uploaded. My file had only 26 lines--there wasn't a line 70, or 71 or even line 62.

I'll bet that David's checker reads the ADIF file that is uploaded, parses it, and creates its own version for processing. And something in those steps is creating those (non-fatal) errors, perhaps because there's no ADIF version specified. 

But you can see that Mike uploaded his version again and it still hasn't processed correctly. Looks like he pulled out the non-PSK31 QSOs (since those notes are missing from the report), but even the PSK31 QSOs alone aren't generating credits against any endorsement.

The checker still knows that you've already earned certain endorsements. That's why you have 15 awards listed in blue on the left side of the page.

The problem (at least as I see it) is that for some reason it's not processing the new file to apply those QSOs either to awarded endorsements or to new ones. It's not even pulling out the fake name I put in my version of the ADIF file for the source of the ADIF. (Usually it's the name of the log program that created the ADIF. My stripped-down version of your log used the phrase "W3HF is fooling around.") That's further indication (at least to me) that the checker isn't seeing the file properly.

The other funny thing is the CM2RSV submitted a log in the middle of all of our actions last night, and his log processed normally.

I just tried one last thing--I created a new text file and copied the contents of my version into it, just in case the file itself got weird. Same result.

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.

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?

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.

But you can see that Mike uploaded his version again and it still hasn't processed correctly. Looks like he pulled out the non-PSK31 QSOs (since those notes are missing from the report), but even the PSK31 QSOs alone aren't generating credits against any endorsement.

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.

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.

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).

Re: Problems with ACLog

Next time this happens, you might export your log as a CSV file, import it into Excel, and create/run a macro on that column to convert the last two characters to lowercase. Would make it much easier.   Then you export the log as .csv and import it into ACLOg.

The problem (at least as I see it) is that for some reason it's not processing the new file to apply those QSOs either to awarded endorsements or to new ones. It's not even pulling out the fake name I put in my version of the ADIF file for the source of the ADIF. (Usually it's the name of the log program that created the ADIF. My stripped-down version of your log used the phrase "W3HF is fooling around.") That's further indication (at least to me) that the checker isn't seeing the file properly.

 

The other funny thing is the CM2RSV submitted a log in the middle of all of our actions last night, and his log processed normally.

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.

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.

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).

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?

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.

Yeah…it’s weird for sure! You and I thought of the same trickery… I just didn’t have time to fully execute. I appreciate you taking time to muck with it. Hopefully David can find it quickly. I’ve submitted quite a few endorsements within the past couple weeks… hopefully they haven’t gotten mucked up.

As Jerry said… some days we should stay in bed.

Mike -

The checker still knows that you've already earned certain endorsements. That's why you have 15 awards listed in blue on the left side of the page.

The problem (at least as I see it) is that for some reason it's not processing the new file to apply those QSOs either to awarded endorsements or to new ones. It's not even pulling out the fake name I put in my version of the ADIF file for the source of the ADIF. (Usually it's the name of the log program that created the ADIF. My stripped-down version of your log used the phrase "W3HF is fooling around.") That's further indication (at least to me) that the checker isn't seeing the file properly.

The other funny thing is the CM2RSV submitted a log in the middle of all of our actions last night, and his log processed normally.

I just tried one last thing--I created a new text file and copied the contents of my version into it, just in case the file itself got weird. Same result.

I continue to be stumped.

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.

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.
