Re: [ARRL-LOTW] New computer/certificate renewal
- Thanks Dave,Part of this works well.I found the certificate and it expires 2005-09-10, so it is still good.I clicked on download and it saved it to desktop.I go to desktop and click on Certs but it comes up the same as before--"Expired".I tried it again a couple of ways, but still expired.Now, this is a new computer with Win XP. Wonder if this could cause some type of problem like firewalls, etc?Might have to give ARRL a call.Bill W5ECBill:
Well lets do this.....go to the LOTW site, click on "Your Account" and then
click on "Your Certificate". Now your certificate and all it's info will
appear including the expire date.
If all is in order, click on "download certificate" link and you will then
have a good replacement certificate to work with. Remember, you can see and
review the data before you download it......
What you DON'T want to do is order a new certificate if the one you have is
valid...this really messes things up...I have been there!
If all else fails, give LOTW a phone call before you go and order
certificates. There most helpful Bill.

But, when I click on the imported certificate, I can not select "renew

Properties show no begin date and no end date; it does have the correct QSO
but it also has a QSO End Date which I thought was supposed to be open.
Anyway it appears that it is no longer valid for whatever reason.
Can I get a replacement certificate and then renew it or what is the
Bill, I am no expert by any means but your on the right track. Get your
machine back to matching your old one ......... download and install the
latest Tqsl version from the web site the use your backedup .p12 file to
restore you to where you were. Then proceed with the renewal as needed.
Good Luck, Dave K8GVK

What is the date on your computer? Right click on the time in the right
hand side of the taskbar and click "Adjust Date/Time". Is the date

Either you don't have a valid certificate (it's expired already), or
your computer's date is wrong making it look like the cert is no longer
