    I receive a Post writing that our ADIF Logs containing both fields “station_callsign” and “operator” cannot be uploaded to LOTW .
    I do not know the LOTW but this seems very strange to me, being both ADIF fields in the protocol specifications. May please somebody explain this to me? Or is it a mistake or a false notice?
    Did somebody of you reader also uploaded wwff logs to LOTW?
    This is urgent for me, please! Thanks

    I’ve uploaded logs to LoTW for years, and these have always have both fields populated.

    This includes personal callsigns and special-event and club calls.


    Thank you very much Abdrew for the exhaustive reply!
    I’m now sure that the adif Logs that I modify to suit for autoupload to WWFF are OK; som OM Activator did not want to complete the Info on my Request, they used a nice italian Logger, a good one, but that puts “Operator” instead of “Station_Callsign”.
    They used a clubcall and were 4 ops, so I asked him to give me their Data in Log, and the OldMan refused to give other data and also to give sig and sig_info, and further went hangry too, on my regard … Then another OM told me abt LoTW and these two fields, and also that in other countries the NC were not like me thus all these data I requested were really not necessaries and unfair.
    … If they simply used FLE …
    Many thanks for the Infos, Andrew, very kind from you.

    Per the TQSL release notes as of version 2.5.3 (April 2020):

    Minor Updates:

    Ignore leading and trailing whitespace in ADIF values.
    Ignore callsign fields (OPERATOR, STATION_CALLSIGN, OPERATOR_CALLSIGN) in ADIF files to work around defective logging programs.
    When a Station Location has empty values, use the QTH details from the log being signed.

    Curious that ignoring three of the primary logging fields is considered a “minor” update ๐Ÿ™
