ClubLog upload for previous callsigns


Occasionally, I still get QSLs for contacts I made many years ago with a previous callsign. Even though these are in my current log and (I think) were uploaded to ClubLog from CQRLOG, whenever I update a QSO I made with my prior callsign it can't upload the update to ClubLog. Is there a way around this, or is there a setting I haven't set?

For instance, I just got a QSL card from 4U1UN for a contact I made in 1998. I updated my log with the new QSL status and saved. When attempting to update ClubLog, it fails with the familiar "Could not delete original QSO data!" error.

Normally I would remove the entry from the "log_changes" table and upload a 1-off ADIF file to ClubLog, but I'd really like this to work!

ClubLog upload for previous callsigns?

Following up - I tried looking in the source code to see if I could find out how this works. It think the OPERATOR tag isn't sent, so ClubLog must assume the payload comes from my default (current) callsign.

Can you confirm?

Hi Dave!

I think "operator" tag is not sent as it has been defined later, not so long ago.
Question now is that can Clublog accept Operator tag? And how it uses it?

I do not use external logs, so this is a gray area for me.

Thanks, Saku. I'm not sure how it works on the ClubLog interface side. They may not be using the OPERATOR tag at all. When I upload an ADIF file manually on ClubLog, I have to select the callsign the upload belongs to on the upload dialog page. I'm not sure how that would be handled when uploading from CQRLOG.

Not critical at all. I just wondered if I was missing something about how CQRLOG works. I'm always finding things I have not been using right. For instance, I wrote a few SQL scripts to use in "Filter -> SQL console" for various lookup and maintenance tasks. Then I learned more about how to use the "Filter -> Create" option and found I don't need most of the scripts. I'm just a hard-headed guy learning the hard-headed way. ;)

Thanks for helping out, and thanks for the great logging app!
