    In HRD, if I use an ampersand (&) in the Comments field, and upload the log entry to QRZ, QRZ rejects the upload: "missing <EOR> in record".

    Special charters are best left out of a somewhat plain text file.

    Many times you can put a entry in quotes " This is a test & it worked" To avoid a EOF or EOR errors.

    The "&" screws with the End Of Record in your case. A Under Score _ works for me to add comments, Even in a file name.

    Good Luck. The structure if a ADIF file seems to be well documented. Maybe a update is in order ??? But it does work As Is for most users.
