    The registered license with the FCC for my address is my home near Boston. I'm putting together my ham shack at a second home in midcoast Maine. QRZ uses my "official" home address. I've entered the grid square for my operating location. I tried to upload my adif from QRZ into LOTW but got the error that my grid square is in Maine while my address is in MA. How do I fix this?
    thanks

    Also, and from what I understand, each QRZ logbook is unique to the call, location and date range. You will need a separate QRZ logbook for the new location. QRZ uses the *.p12 file generated from your LoTW certificate to automatically upload to LoTW but I don't know if the p12 file also contains unique location data. It appears the location data is in the tQSL program where you assign different locations to the same certificate associated with your primary call. From what I understand, QRZ does not use tQSL directly to upload to LoTW so it's a mystery to me how QRZ handles different locations when uploading to LoTW.

    Hopefully someone will give us the answer and we both can learn something knew.

    Thanks -- I found my own solution. Basically I was uploading a wsjtx log to QRZ and then exporting it. QRZ is adding my home location. When I directly uploaded the wsjtx log into LOTW it works fine
