Logbook 3.0 Documentation

Import from Logbook of The World

This guide will show you how to copy your QSOs from LoTW into your QRZ Logbook, along with confirmation credit. This guide requires that you already have an LoTW account.   We presume that you already have an LoTW account in this documentation.

Note: This guide is for Imports from LoTW and is available to all QRZ users and subscribers alike.  This is in contrast to Exports to LotW, which is a subscriber-only feature. 

Note: QRZ does not support LoTW beyond our interface to it.  LotW is complicated, and if you need assistance getting TQSL, a LoTW account, or a LoTW certificate, see the official Logbook of the World Instructions page here: http://www.arrl.org/instructions

To begin downloading from LoTW, follow the simple instructions below. If you are a subscriber and have already setup LoTW export, skip to Step 3

 

Step 1: Open your QRZ Logbook, and click "Settings." From there, you will see a section like the one below (yours will say "Disabled" in red.) Click "LoTW Settings"

Step 2: The only thing you need to enter from this page is your LoTW Username. Click Save.

Note: If you are a subscriber, you can upload your LoTW Certificate Container File (.p12) to enable Uploading QSOs from your QRZ Logbook to LoTW. However, that part is optional for enabling downloads. The setup instructions for LoTW uploads can be found here: http://files.qrz.com/static/qrz/lotw_cert_guide.pdf

You will now be back at the settings page, as seen in the image for Step 1. Your LoTW Access will now say "Enabled" or "Enabled (Download-Only)."

 

Step 3: Click the "Import" button as shown below.

Step 4: Enter your LoTW password in the prompt as shown below. This is the password used to access the LoTW website, and MAY, or MAY NOT be the same as the password you use to sign ADIF files for upload. It is unrelated to your QRZ password.

Note: LoTW requires your password to perform a download. Your password is handed to LoTW, never saved or stored at QRZ, and never viewed by QRZ staff. 
 

Step 5: After clicking "OK" on the prompt in Step 4, wait. At this point, QRZ will be downloading your QSOs from LoTW, comparing them to the existing QSOs in your QRZ Logbook(s), updating any existing, matching QSOs, or inserting the QSO as needed. While this going on, you will see a spinning symbol on the page.

Note: This may take a long time if you have many QSOs on LoTW. Progress will appear onscreen as we process the QSOs. If you don't want to wait, you can move on. The process will continue in the background. If you do scroll away, you will miss the completed notification.   It's not absolutely necessary since the same info will be presented in the "File Import / Export History" section at the bottom of the Settings page.

Step 6: The process is complete! If you waited, the spinner has been replaced by a success message.
 
You will probably want to review that log file of the operation in the File Import / Export History area.
