    I now have several long distance contacts in my log.

    The ones from Asia are showing the correct Great Circle degress to my QTH from the other end.

    HOWEVER, when the data reaches the QRZ log from JTALERT, the degress FROM my QTH are simply
    calculated as the 180 degree opposite rather than the Great Circle route from my QTH to the other end.

    WSJT-X shows the correct value but does not save it in the log.

    How do I update my QRZ account to properly account for the Great Circle route from my QTH for all
    contacts?

    Beam direction calculate between two GRIDs , your and other station . If other station no have GRID update in his QRZ page - it shown to DXCC entity , but not to location where other station located .
    Please check in "details" other station about his GRID .

    Both Accounts in QRZ show Grids that match what was exchanged in WSJT-X and saved in WSJT-X log.

    Example : Call from Japan shows 34 degrees to my QTH which is correct YET degrees saved by QRZ is 180 from this and WRONG.
    It should be about 325 degrees using Great Circle.

    How do I change my QRZ account so that this is calculated correctly?
