Re: Downloading an entire log


Well, that's too bad.  I had a similar issue way back when I was using LogWindows.  Turned out it was only the last QSO that corrupted the file though.  I was able to bake a backup and then convert it into ADIF format.  But this occurred sometime ago.

Have you ran any disc diagnostics?  You might have a disk that is going bad.

For whatever reason it appears the log file is corrupted. QSOs end in February 2008 (even though the file is dated 8/30/2019), and there are a lot more after that. The software doesn’t want to read my backups, either. I’m not sure what happened, but here I am. I’ve reinstalled the software with no luck.

What logging program do you use?  Have you checked if there is a way to back up your log , or export it to a ADIF file?  This may  be the easiest method.

I may be giving up on my current logging software, as it no longer seems to want to accurately load my current log or any of my backups.


But I have my entire log on LOTW. Is there a way to download my entire log as an ADIF? Not just QSOs that have been QSLed, but ALL 133,000+ QSOs dating back to 1983? I realize I’ll probably have to download it in chunks. Thanks for any help!
