    My LoTW has been maintenance free for over 18 months. The only time I've had to do anything is when I re-installed it on a new PC

    Mine too. Sounds like his problem is more computer/files related than LOTW related.

    yep. a crappy PC and/or outdated operating system, malware, etc. can make EVERYTHING run bad. I'd guess that those with LOTW problems have problems with their other apps too...

    I have recently started working the FM Satellites, and finally figured out LoTW... I've have entered all my (almost 600) Sat contacts one by one with the QSO Data in TQSL... the other day I exported ADIF from qrz and uploaded to LoTW... now all my Sat contacts say Cross Band and ARRL blaming QRZ.

    I'm aware of problems that more than one computer logger developers have had with LoTW also. Both cases were failure to update TSQL.....and neither was aware that an update was required. I can agree that I had no problem with LoTW during my first 12 months. When things changed it got real frustrating sorting out the problems. Yes updating was simple, however, knowing when updates are necessary is another thing!

    If relying on a computer loggers gets to be a pain in the kester computer logging becomes unnecessary in my opinion. I'm not in this hobby to debug computer problems...another reason digital modes don't appeal to me!

    I see a lot of people report issues with LoTW, maybe it is because I don't upload that often (just after the few contests I do each year) but I have never had any issues with it. I know in the earlier days they had scale issues but I believe they have worked most of those out.

    I wonder if the OP ever worked out their issues with the fields in their log.
