View Full Version : FALSE ENTRIES INTO QRZ LOG BOOK
09-29-2010, 08:06 PM
I would like to know how it is possible for call signs to show
up in myQRZ log book from stations I have never worked.. I got an incoming to my log book from w9XXX (true call sign hidden).. This person inflicted his call into my log book and I cannot seem to delete it... I have never worked this guy!!
I want my log book to reflect actual contacts.. I also have recently received QSL cards from people I have never worked.. What to do about this and why do people do this? Any helpful suggestions would be appreciated.. TNX!!!!
From your QRZ callsign page, you and I share retirement and many years of amateur radio.
If we receive a QSL for a QSO we didn't have, either by mail or electronically, it generally means the party has miscopied the call of the station worked; I doubt it is with malicious intent. There is no way to stop this, that party has sent the QSL in good faith.
You can then decide what to do, mail it back, send an e-mail so advising, ignore it, etc.
In the case of the QRZ Logbook you can REJECT the QSO entry by clicking on the red "X"(this is similar to confirming it by checking on the green checkmark). This will notify the other party that you disagree that a QSO exists but the listing will remain until the other party views it and deletes the entry he/she believes to be made in good faith.

Well, It seems that I am WRONG! I did work the fellow, but back in January of
this year.. A long time before the log book on QRZ became available.. I keep a
separate personal log book and have been doing so for almost two years. In searching his call, I did find him.. I only keep calls made since the beginning of
the QRZ call Book beginning date in there.. It is ok, but I consider my log book incorrect now... I wish there were some way to seperate it... It does not show as an INCOMING contact.. It appears as if I initiated it.. Oh Well... No harm done.. For those who responded... Many thanks.. James
If you entered the QSO and it remains unconfirmed then you can delete it.
Open your logbook. Find the QSO record. Click on the worked callsign to open the EDIT window and then click on DELETE.
If the QSO you entered has been confirmed then it is no longer possible to delete it as it may have already been applied to an award.
