RE: [ARRL-LOTW] Renewal
Actually, after you are issued a new certificate, the previous *.tq8 files are totally useless. You cannot upload them again, since they reference an expired certificate.

.tq8 files are signed log files one uploads to LoTW and have nothing to do with a certificate. Looks like the author got a bit ambitious with his cleanup suggestion.

I got the re newal notice e mail yesterday as was planning on doing it today.
But got to the first part on deleting old files. and the paragraph is confusing.
This is also a good time to find any old .tq5 and .tq6 files in your computer and delete
them. (Suggestion: use search for *.tq5, *tq6 and *.tq8) Once you have submitted a
request file (.tq5) and loaded the signed certificate file (.tq6) you do not need these files. If
you accidentally submit the wrong one, your certificate processing could be delayed.
It says to search for and delete the tq5 & tq6 files. then in the parentheses, it also says the tq8 file.
so what is it, just the tq5 & tq6, or is it all three types?
