Propagation type RPT (repeater) should not be uploaded to LoTW

I'm one of those people who logs all radio contacts, including those via a repeater. Thanks to the cool and upgraded features in cqrlog I can now set propagation type RPT (repeater) correctly on the Satellite tab for the contact.

But that will make the next upload to LoTW fail. tqsl will not accept the contact (which matches the LoTW rules: repeater contacts don't count). So tqsl ends with status code 9 "some QSOs suppressed" which means cqrlog will mark none of the contacts as uploaded and the problem continues.

I would suggest the best course of action is to filter contacts before submitting them to tqsl, I think Echolink, Internet-assisted, IRLP and Repeater should be filtered out.

As a quick fix:

Can you create qth profile "repeater"?
Then you can use Qso list/filter/profile to get all qsos visible and then use "Mark all qsos uploaded to lotw"

This did show up another problem: the Filter does not have "filter by propagation" selection that would make no need for qth profile usage in this case.

Of course filtering can be done by SQL console if just commanding sql is familiar.


I took the SQL way

For me the easy solution was the mysql commandline, but that's because I'm used to unix commandline and database work. I just mark the RPT contacts as already uploaded to LoTW.

$ mysql -S /home/koos/.config/cqrlog/database/sock cqrlog002
mysql> update cqrlog_main set lotw_qslsdate=curdate() where prop_mode='RPT' AND lotw_qslsdate is NULL;
