Missing entries in the Database for SOTA chasers log

I am applying for the Double New Mexico Century award. My Log was not matching up to the SOTA Database so I did some checking. I was missing 133 chaser contacts. It was not individual entries it was blocks of entries. From date to date.

The biggest block was 3/9/2020 to 4/3/2020. There were others missing.

I am usually good about uploading my contacts so I don’t know if this was my error or somehow they just got deleted??

Check your log!


Any chance you used mm/dd/yy format rather than the dd/mm/yy format? Your quoted dates are not in the format used by the database enquiry and report screens.


Here is what activators have logged for 9th-mar to 3rd-april

I’m not accusing anyone of anything. I was thinking something had gone wrong and someone could show me. I just don’t know how these did not show up in the data base. I’m sure I uploaded these!! I have already fixed it. It took me a while to figure out what was missing.

I’m not sure what you posted has to do with why my uploaded logs? Those that you posted are in my log and have been re-uploaded.


Hi Kent,

What Andy posted is all the activator’s who logged you as a chaser during your stated time period. This should match up with your chaser log during that time period, unless an activator that you chased hasn’t entered their log (or they entered your call incorrectly).

We most definitely haven’t lost any records in the DB.

Thanks for the many chases Kent, much appreciated!
