    Hi I have been having issues for quite some time now with P2P contacts that I have made,I have just gone thru my QSO lists on here and all logs are there from both parties but some are still showing as unconfirmed currently list is 107 of 148 confirmed.
    I had raised this before and thought it was being fixed with the new system being upgraded and continually sorted but no such luck. After the effort to get out portable it would be nice to be able to finally claim the awards that I am short of.
    Thanks Adrian VK5FANA

    I have about 30 P2P and they don’t seem to be showing at all. I have only one that is showing but listed as ‘unconfirmed.’

    Now sitting at 107 out of 150 actions are very slow here

    Well frankly I am more than disgusted at what is going on in this regard. I have tried to chat with a few different wwff officials about this very thing and I appear to be getting minimal support. By and large it appears that the problem lies with the activators not submitting a log and as far as I am concerned them people should be on a “non conforming” list so we know who they are and maybe we can pressure them to do the right thing. I have no interest in being portable in a park only to find I work others in a park and they do not bother to do the right thing. Enuf is enuf ……… I would seriously like to see how many out there agree that something must be done to aleviate this problem as best it can be.

    With apologies – my work and family matters have been getting in the way of my hobby.

    Could you give me some examples that have not confirmed, where both parties logs are uploaded?

    With close to nine million QSOs in the database, I need a clue ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Examples were sent and still appears as if nothing has been sorted. Surely if times are a minute or 2 apart but both logs there it should be easily confirmed seems like the gap is getting larger between confirmed and unconfirmed

    A P2P will confirm if the QSO is +/- 5 minutes…

    There is a problem where the two times are either side of midnight UTC… as the date then doesn’t match. I’ll try and fix that…

    Adrian: the file you sent me had 148 entries with a claimed P2P, of which 12 were not confirmed. A quick scan shows garbage-in/garbage-out to be the cause.

    Logsearch makes an educated guess if one log specifies HH::MM:SS and the other 00:HH:MM (or even 00:00:00) but logs with 00:00:HH take a bit of guessing… as an observation EVERY ONE of your logs has incorrect time information.

    But of course, this is still MY FAULT that your P2Ps are not confirming?!

    If that is the case then how did Paul get them to upload if every log had 00:00 for times and all my times were out should not all p2p not confirm?

    The only thing time is used for is to confirm P2P – 00:00:xx is a valid time ๐Ÿ™

    Despite the intentions of our committee of volunteers there are some problems with P2P. Before we go charging let us sit for a bit and give them time to actually find what is causing the problems. I am like many others wh have P2P not conforming……….. I hate it probably more than most so I am just enjoying the challenge of getting in logs especially dx logs………. its tough work if I am at home and even tougher when I am activating. I just keep pushing the envelope as afr as I can and try to get as many as is possible.
