>>> Take a look at the ADIF for the digital voice QSO in question. Does it specify

DIGITALVOICE

?

Please attach the ADIF file (that you are trying to submit to LoTW) to an email message, and send the message to me via

aa6yq (at) ambersoft.com

VOI is incorrect for DMR (DIGITALVOICE). VOI is a data mode - not a
voice (phone) mode.

Thanks for sending me your ADIF file, Tony. It exposes the problem, which is that the mode specified in your QSOs is DIGITALVOI instead of DIGITALVOICE:

DIGITALVOI

You should bring this to the attention to your logging application developer. If he or she needs additional information, feel free to provide my email address.

In the mean time, you can submit your QSOs to LoTW by using a text editor to correct your ADIF file: replace all instances of

DIGITALVOI

with

DIGITALVOICE

can you try to fix the problem please
thanks, 73

HI!

HI!

For fast and easy fix before program fix use console command :
sed s/DIGITALVOI/DIGITALVOICE/g lotw.adif > fixed_lotw.adif

and sign the file fixed_lotw.adif and upload it to lotw

Re: HI!

Unfortunately this won't work because in the mode tag, there is also the length of the mode. Mode will be changed but the length will remain the same.

Re: HI!

Yep! You are right Petr, as usually :)

Small mistake because last time I used "sed" was to change the field NAME, not the content.
In that case sed works as expected.
Instead if field CONTENT has to be changed the length must taken account (recount by operator).

I.E. in this case:
 sed s/":10>DIGITALVOI"/":12>DIGITALVOICE"/g test.adi > test_fix.adi> Makes:

<QSO_DATE:8>20180217<TIME_ON:4>1144<CALL:5>TE1ST<MODE:10>DIGITALVOI<FREQ:3>3.5<BAND:3>80M<RST_SENT:2>59<RST_RCVD:2>59

to be like:

<QSO_DATE:8>20180217<TIME_ON:4>1144<CALL:5>TE1ST<MODE:12>DIGITALVOICE<FREQ:3>3.5<BAND:3>80M<RST_SENT:2>59<RST_RCVD:2>59

( Wow it's hard to make this page accept all those greater/less arrows right ;) using pre /pre is just not enough !! )

And that will be accepted format.
For now, after next release where Jonas'es pull request is added, this is not relevant any more.

How ever there are other cases that still needs this kind of work.
For example FF (Flora&Fauna) operations need adif field name QSL_MSG that cqrlog does not have. Instead "Comment to qso" can be used. When exported to adif it comes to field named COMMENT that can then be changed to QSL_MSG with:

sed s/COMMENT/QSL_MSG/g qso.adif > qso_fix.adif

In that case there is no need for length calculations as we change field NAME not it's CONTENT.

Re

I've made changes to support 12 character mode and added DIGITALVOICE, the changes will hopefully be merged to master branch (if accepted) and later into new version.
