    My last two LoTW uploads appeared to happen as usual, but after two days they didn't appear in my account. Looking into Logbook Activity under "My Account", I see this (just a snippet of one upload):

    I think this is telling me that my county doesn't exist along with the station IDs not matching. I have the same errors on over 50 QSOs for the past two uploads.

    This is a problem at ARRL. They are aware of the issue (everyone, including me is having the same problem). They are working on a solution.

    Same thing happened to me I sent them a trouble report. It errored out on the county. I wonder if there trying to make adjustments so that someday soon they can help with County Hunter awards through CQ and someone screwed up the code. I successfully downloaded files over the weekend, did nothing on Monday but then yesterday it bombed even though the underlying ADIF files were accepted by eQSL and QRZ.

    I think you are mistaken. I just tried a test upload and get the same error as before. LoTW site is up, but something isn't working

    Didn't notice any errors on upload but when checking Your Activity (not My Account) is shows the trouble, namely "tCONTACT STATION_UID (1) doesn't match any tSTATION STATION_UID" and "Record nn ignored due to errors"

    Not since I ditched LoTW a year ago!

    That's the same message I received. When I deleted my county (parish, where I live), it worked. I've been on LoTW for a whole 2 days, so I'm still learning.

    I'm disappointed it the notice posted on the LoTW home page about receiving the error, as the error wasn't given on upload...only found it if you investigated. The error notice could have been more clearly written about this glitch. I suspect many will think that their logs were uploaded during this two day period of problems.

    I did an upload on Sunday after I shut down my ARRL DX CW op, probably won’t do another one until the end of the month. So I didn’t run into that issue, sorry.

    Make sure you tell LotW Support about this. Don’t assume that they know, or that they read these forums...

    No, scratch that. They do know, and there is a note on the ‘home’ page about it. They don’t say what crashed or what they did about it, but they do say to just reload the TQSL file.

    Sorry about that, but things like this happen with databases. (Otherwise, I wouldn’t have a job!)
