Hi,

What's the expected outcome (result) in ACL's "Sent Conf By" field after you've done an upload of QSOs to eQSL, LoTW, and Clublog?

My experience based on very limited testing is not what I would have expected.  If I upload to Clublog, eQSL, and Clublog in the SAME SESSION of ACL, then the "Sent Conf By" field contains "BE".

However, if I upload to those services in different sessions of ACL, it appears that only the last upload code appears in the "Send Conf By" (apparently, the later upload overrides the code from the earlier upload).  So,if I upload to eQSL, then the field shows "E". But, if I shutdown ACL and then restart it on another day and then upload to Clublog, then the field shows only a "B" (not a "BE").

73,

Tony/N8SK

Hi Tony,

Thanks for your e-mail.  Nothing is replaced in the Confirmed by fields.  Additional confirmation methods are appended.

Enjoy!

Hi Scott/N3FJP,

Thanks for the prompt reply.

However, my actual testing experience does not agree with your reply.  I uploaded to eQSL and the "Sent Conf By" got filled with an "E".  I ended my ACL session, logged off the computer, waited a day or two, until I realized I forgot to upload the same QSOs to Clublog; so, I uploaded them to Clublog and now the "Sent Conf By" field is a "B" (not the expected "BE").

The key based on my experiments seems to be whether you do the upload to multiple online e-logging services during the same session of ACL or not.

I log my Qs at various time to LoTW and ClubLog . never in the same session. and I do not have issues with the entry being overwritten.  Sorry that Icannot shed some light on why you are having these issues.73 --Larry -- W1DYJ

Hi Tony,

Thanks for your follow up.  I just duplicated your steps as follows:

Initial Condition (no sent confirmations):







After upload to eQSL:







Closed AC Log and then opened it again.Uploaded to Clublog:









This feature has been around a while now, there haven't been any other problem reports and all continues to work normally here.  If you can find any other conditions that will generate the behavior you describe so that I can duplicate it, please let me know.
