    I finally found a post that states you cannot manually confirm a contact for DXCC credit iN your log
    The problem is illustrated by this example
    I worked 9M1MM in mid 1979. back then you sent a card , got a card , sent in to ARRL for DXCC confirmation , then it applied as a country in your DXCC totals

    9M1MM long gone. There are no records in this current database this or other older contacts I have confirmed and was switched over to LOTW when that system came on line

    The entry I just read said in V2 of this data base there is NO way to manually fix update your LOTW confirmed contacts here.
    How am I supposed to get credit for the additional 20 or more countries which I have cards for and confirmation but no way to put them into this database. I have created multiple logs, single large logs, and last done LOTW imports to No avail.

    please advise not to sync long past contacts with the data base

    I've been thinking about this problem lately. Not the QRZ log but LOTW. If we have cards for deleted entities, or in my case, places that still exist, but are hard to get to, an ARRL card checker may be the answer.

    Most areas have designated card checkers and these folks can look at your card, verify it's authenticity and add it to your ARRL DXCC total. I believe that once that happens, the contact can be added to LOTW. Once it's in LOTW, a simple upload should do the trick.



    Having been way too lazy, I have not gone thru any process to add DXCC entities to my current LOTW account. I have cards for some places that I have never seen a LOTW confirmation for just like your example. Maybe one of the two URL's will be helpful?

    Did you mean Father Moran 9N1MM - not 9M1MM ??


    DXCC award programm (i.e. LoTW) has nothing to do with QRZ logbook .

    Correct 9N1MM Father Moran -
    To the point of the other gentelman - I have done that years ago. The older cards are in the LOTW as confirmed. They were confirmed manually. They simply do not confirm in this data base when I upload LOTW into the here. I have no problem with Club log. It counts all my older contacts and newer ones correctly, I guess the problem here is something that the data base here is looking for on the record? I thought if LOTW was confirmed, it would be confirmed here. That is simply not the case.

    I cannot get alignment to my Club Log ot LOTW Sata which agree
    I give up the system here is simply impossible to work with
