I can't connect to LoTW, getting this error message:

Fatal error: initializeLOTWDB: -709 - CONNECT: (cannot connect to server socket): General database error [initializeLOTWDB: -709 - CONNECT: (cannot connect to server socket)]

Anyone else has this problem? Nothing on the ARRL news page either...

Yes, LoTW seems to be down at the moment.

I would check http://www.arrl.org/logbook-of-the-world periodically for news. But there is no new news right now.

You can also check http://www.arrl.org/logbook-queue-status. Apparently, we have missed the 18:59 UTC update, so the outage is probably less than an hour at this point.

Hi Martiin, tnx for info. I tried all available sources B4 posting, but good to get verified that it wasn't my equipment.

I see that now (f´Febb 2) there is some info on the News page. It would of course be nice to post a note there before they take the service down... On the other hand, why should I have to know everything ;-)
