Hi N1NN,
Thanks for your reply. My total QSO number has raised after the latest LoTW crash without any new upload from my part.
Plus, as an example, the logging software I use does not allow a QSO to be recorded on 60M band! This band is not granted in France. It is consequently impossible to have signed then uploaded a QSO on that band.
By the way, I am really surprised there is no coherency check on LoTW, some QSO are recorded with a band which does not match the frequency:

Hi,
Since the latest crash one week or so ago, the total QSO recorded is bigger than my total number of QSO.
I have downloaded the entre LoTW log to compare with mine, and I realized there is a mess!
Here are a few examples of almost-duplicates:

CS0RCL/P 2002-07-07 13:15:00 60M SSB 5.288000
CS0RCL/P 2002-07-07 13:15:00 15M CW 21.008000

Same date, same time, different band (one not allowed in F) and mode...

YI9ZF 2004-06-14 20:24:48 20M CW 10.107000
YI9ZF 2004-06-14 20:24:48 30M CW 10.107000

OH0/SM0JHF 2004-06-14 20:58:26 20M CW 10.109000
OH0/SM0JHF 2004-06-14 20:58:26 30M CW 10.109000

Worse. Same date, same time, different band but same frequency!


I have a dozen of such entries.
Of course I have raised a ticket, which was never answered...
