I am still having trouble with LOTW. This evening I sat down and thought I entered 53 records. When I tried signing the file, it said I had entered 38 records. I now have to sit down and re-enter all those records again. Is it better to enter like 10 records, sign them and then upload them and do small increments of 10 records?? I have no idea why it did not take my records. I edited an existing ADIF file and saved the file with all the records I entered, so why did it not take my records after I entered them why I tried to sign the file? If you can't tell, I am really getting frustrated with LOTW.

Is it maybe a problem with your logging software?  The ADIF file isn't correct, perhaps?  How said you entered the data--into what software, your logger?  An ADIF editor?  You said you edited an existing ADIF file--do you mean with a text editor?  Losing a bracket in one tiny place could throw things off, I think.   For what it's worth, I haven't had any problems with LOTW uploads, and I'm using homebrewed logging software, which would probably be more likely to have problems than big commercial packages.

When you sign a file, if there are errors in the adif file it will stop at the error and give you an error message and tell you what field the error was in.  It will also throw out duplicate qso's.  It will fail for any error including typos, missing data or non-existent call signs.  Hope this helps.
