Hello all. I'm trying to get the WAS basic, and have worked all the states, but for some reason LoTW won't recognise my QSO with K4UU as a QSO form Kentucky (KY), even if it's properly verified...

Worked K4UU
DXCC UNITED STATES OF AMERICA (291)
Date/Time 2013-10-26 13:32:06
Mode SSB (PHONE)
Band 15M
Frequency 21.239780
Receive Frequency 21.239.780
QSL 2013-10-27 20:07:17

Can anyone explain this, it is the last state needed for my WAS?
Best Regards, Thomas / OH6NT

Did K4UU upload the QSO to LoTW? Did you both record the same UTC time & date? (Sometimes people write the wrong hour in the log, etc. I've done that.)

Hi Martin, yes the QSO is verified on LoTW, but he is not recognized as beeing in KY! The QSO data in my previous post is from LoTW. I have been there too with wrong time on the QSO, but then it don't get verified. So... ??? de OH6NT

Perhaps K4UU submitted the QSO with missing or incorrect information. Have you tried contacting him directly?

You should have the following lines under "Worked Station":

Worked
DXCC
CQ Zone
ITU Zone
Grid
State
County
Date/Time
Mode
Band
Frequency

Hello Stephen. Of course; that makes sense! He has obviously not filled in his state in his uploaded QSO data. I contacted him, and he promised to look into it, but I could not tell him this particular at the time, so I'll mail him again. Thanks for the clarification. Matter's closed. BTW, I'd need ND also on CW, so hw about a sked; if possible mail me at oh6nt@sral.fi :-) CU, Tom.
