LoTW, QRZ, HamQTH SmartSDR for Mac

I am new to using the Flexradio and SmartSDR for Mac. I have my QRZ and HamQTH username and passwords setup under the Preferences. I can Test both and they report everything is fine.

In the Logger tool, on the LoTW tab it shows 73 unseats QSLs. I can go to preferences and load my P12 file and I get Wrong Certificate file or password. Ugg

Under the QRZ tab, I already loaded my Website API key in preferences, when I see qsls it processed them says total QSO: 73, Failed: 73.

I can log into both LoTW and QRZ webpages just fine. Ami Missing something here??

73, Rufus KG4ASZ

    I'm uploading to LoTW, eQSL and ClubLog without issues. If you want to upload to QRZ using the SmartSDR Logbook QSL option you need to paid at least the XML subscription. :-( you can always export the ADIF file and upload manually or retrieve the data from LoWT direct to the QRZ logbook.

    From the QRZ website;

    XML Logbook Data - Direct access to our widely acclaimed XML Data Port by popular logging programs like Ham Radio Deluxe, Amateur Contact Log, Win-EQF,LOGic7, and ProLog2K, just to name a few.

    Hi Robert

    How did you resolve your LOTW problem?

    I'd like to add my plea that someone explain how to resolve the LOTW "Wrong Certificate file or password" error when trying to load my p12 file. I've tried every password I can think of, but none work. When I saved the p12 file I did not set a password, so it can't be that one it's looking for. My Mac password doesn't work, my ARRL password doesn't work, the certificate was successfully loaded and saved... I'm at a loss what to do to load the p12 file into SmartSDR for Mac.

    OK, I figured it out. I went back and re-uploaded my certificate and then saved it WITH a PassPhrase. I then went back into SmartSDR and loaded the p12 file using the new passphrase as the password. That worked. I just sent my QSLs to LOTW and received the message "QSOs Queued for Processing on LOTW". I'll assume that everything is now working. Phew! This entire process is a lot more complicated than seems necessary, what with postcards and additional software...but what do I know?
