Simple Apple Script for LOTW confirmation in MacloggerDX

If you’re on the Mac running your ham radio logging, chances are you are using the great

MacloggerDX as your logging program. Unfortunately LOTW support is not built into

MacloggerDX so one has to find workarounds. Thanks to AppleScript support one can do

this very easily. Simply replace YOURUSERNAME and YOURPASSWORD below with your own

data and run the script.

The script will download your complete LOTW report and place it into your Downloads folder

in your home directory. It then tells MacloggerDX to confirm log entries against the

downloaded ADIF file.



do shell script “curl -L  ‘https://p1k.arrl.org/lotwuser/lotwreport.adi?login=YOURUSERNAME&password=YOURPASSWORD&qso_query=1’ -o ~/Downloads/lotwfile.adi”

 

 

tell application “MacLoggerDX”

confirmADIF “~/Downloads/lotwfile.adi”

end tell



Next working on a simple way to automate uploading to LOTW.

One thought on “Simple Apple Script for LOTW confirmation in MacloggerDX

  1. Nice.

    But, the user cannot just copy and paste the script from the instructions.

    The display quotes and apostrophes must be replaced by straight quotes and apostrophes. Otherwise, the script will not compile.
