  • HRD and LOTW Upload not working

    PROBLEM: The UPLOAD button is greyed out when I attempt to upload to LOTW from HRD Logbook. I have approximately 100 entries Highlighted for upload. I have setup a new laptop to use HRD Version, with all Windows 10 updates. LOTW was installed and a certificate was requested yesterday (062820) and received today (062920) from and for this laptop.

    HRD and LOTW worked perfectly on previous desktop computer for two years. Thinking I have missed a simple step somewhere. Possibly a registry issue, but hate messing around unless I have specific guidelines.

    Have you tried exporting at least one QSO then using TQSL to upload directly to LOTW this might tell you something.

      Morris, Think I tried that earlier before some adjustments to HRD My Station. Will try that again Tuesday Morning. Thanks for the reply. Think I worked you for Field Day on FT8. N0ZMF - Dennis

          Mike, WA9PIE,

          First of all thanks for the help. I apologize for being verbose in this this reply. But still have same problem.

          Following your post, I made changes as follows:

          1. My Station: changed State to initials KS from Kansas; CQ to 4 from 0; ITU to 7 from 0.

          2. Made a backup of Logbook.

          3. Registry change: Owner from Blank to N0ZMF

          4. Another backup of Logbook after Bulk Edit: Owner to N0ZMF; CQ to 4; ITU to 7.

          5. Greyed out LOTW Upload still remains.

          6. Closed HRD; Restarted Laptop; Opened HRD and Logbook; Highlighted QSO's; LOTW Upload still greyed out.

          7. Used DIAGNOSING LOTW from Tqsl / LOTW website. Certificates / Station locations / Serial number all checkout and match.

          Sorry Mike for the problem. I am thinking that I may need to do a complete reinstall of HRD and LOTW /Tqsl by removing all associated Registry keys. Should I try on my own or develop a Support Ticket?

          Thanks for the program, Love it, and thanks for your assistance.

          As Churchill said... Never before has one person done so much to help so many, (well, paraphrased anyway)

            I'm confused. Are you trying to upload to LoTW from the new laptop or from the old desktop?
            Nice chopper pictured on your QRZ page. And, thank you for your service.
