FT4 addition to the logbook - will it be added to the modes soon?
It is there right under MSFK....FT4
Good on LoTW too.
Most of my FT4 QRZ Logbook entries (uploaded to QRZ and LoTW via Ham Radio Deluxe) say "FT4" but are not cross-correlating with LoTW when I do a download from LoTW to QRZ Logbook. A few that are green highlighted say "Data" instead of "FT4" . Yet there is no mode called "Data" in the QRZ QSO edit screen.
There must be a failure to communicate between WSJT-X and HRD, or HRD and LoTW, or HRD and QRZ. I just don't understand it fully. I am reluctant to make more FT4 QSO's until I can this logbook mess straightened out. Any advice?
Just make QSOs. Sort out the logbook later. You can always re-upload your QSOs in bulk in the future if one or more of the log providers can't auto-migrate or auto-repair their issues.
QRZ conforms with the latest revision to the ADIF standard; " DATA" is not an ADIF recognized mode. The mode enumeration " DATA" is emanating from one of your sources that is not in conformance with the standard.
My last post on this thread was Sept 2019. I basically avoided using FT4 because of the log book issues. Finally, HRD issued version 188.8.131.529, which "fixes" their problem with LOTW uploads being rejected. There is a also an HRD Youtube video detailing how to correctly set up FT4 logging. Great! I installed the new version, watched the video, and, voila!, LOTW stared accepting my uploads from HRD. Did the problems end? Nope.
I also post everything in QRZ logbook. I perform two operations: (1) I upload my latesd log entries from HRD directly to QRZ. (2) Then, while in QRZ Logbook, I go to the SETTINGS screen and download data from LOTW to show the confirmations.
Now QRZ Logbook shows double entries for every FT4 QSO. One says DATA, the other says MFSK. Here's a screen clip:
I notice that the bulk of my confirmations (LOTW) show on the line that says DATA. But some, which I think are confirmations reported through QRZ, show up on the MFSK line.
I will look again at your forum posts, but the frustration continues!
To elaborate on the recent HRD "fix", "DATA" is not used in the ADIF. FT4 is reported as MFSK: FT4
I have a similar question, HRD uploads FT-4 to QRZ and lists as MFSK , How do we make the sub mode FT-4 display??
