L32Lookups for Logger32 — 236 Comments

  1. Hi Gary..
    If you enter my call in the entry window and press Tab does the lookup load?? It should load and display a window with my info in it.
    If the lookup doesn’t load on the top Menu of Logger32 Click Setup and then Autolookup and then Auto Internet Callsign Lookup (External) and make sure that is checked.
    Now try the same thing with my call and pressing tab. If the path is set correct to the lookup it will load. If it is the first time opening the lookup you should be prompted to select the type of lookup and then enter in your username and password. Before i go further I want to make sure the lookup is loading…

  2. I’ve noticed that if I enter a call sign directly into the QRZ XML call field, the returned QRZ has a single call. If I enter it into the log field, I get a double returned back from Does this help? Gary, W7DO

  3. This is a issue within Logger32. I’m not sure when but Bob K4CY will be releasing a new version of Logger32 that has this correct. Something was broke with the last update he did.

  4. Hi Rick

    In my case, Windows 7, my account security settings were the blockers to making it run correctly.

  5. can not access keep getting incorrect user name/password. also no longer able to log into the telnet window

  6. Hi Tom..
    If you would Turn Debug on and attempt to do a look up with the program. When it fails you will find a file called L32LookupsDebugLog.txt in the directory where the program is installed. please send that as an attachment to

  7. Hi Rick,

    When InternetCallsignLookup opens up in Logger32, I cannot open the Map in the Detail tab on I click “show map”and then it just keeps on loading.
    When I go to with my browser, I can open the map without any problem.
    What am I doing wrong?

  8. When I get a chance I will have to take a look at the link. If it is a Java or a frame link it will not open those links in the browser window.

    73 Rick N2AMG

  9. Hi Rick, thanks for your reply about the map issue on the InternetCallsignLookup browser window.
    Without the intention to rush you, is it in your tasklist to tackle this problem in the near future?

    Many thanks,

  10. I’m not sure when I will get to this. I have 3 projects that I am working on and one is a contracted piece of software so when I get done I will look at things and find out whats going on. Sorry I can’t give an exact time frame but with my life the only thing that I can make sure happens is my appointments with clients after that its a free for all..

  12. Hi Cliff..
    I am currently working on a fix for this. It only happens on the first use of the day but then if left open you wont see the error again. It is checking the registry for a setting and if it does not find the setting instead of gracefully exiting the routine like it should it throws a hard error. I am hoping by the end of the week I will have fixed everything I need to. Just not finding enough time in the day for everything..

  13. I just renewed my XML database subscription to and cannot get L32 to lookup callsigns in I don’t know if the two are related or if there have been changes in QRZ or L32. L32 opens the yellow lookup window for QRZ but just waits there.

  14. Are you using the latest L32Lookups program. The latest version is Do you have the XML Lookup selected in the Setup area??
    If it was working there is no reason it would have stopped working just by renewing your subscription. Did you change your password when you renewed it?? If so that would need to be updated in the setup of the program.

    73 Rick N2AMG

  15. Thanks. I saw the post from September 6, 2015 at the top of your page and thought this was the most recent. Didn’t see the most recent update hidden right below it and all the comments sorted from least recent at the top to most recent at the bottom. My fault for not hunting around enough. After uninstalling the old version and installing the new one, it works fine.

  16. Hey Rick,
    Having a problem with the l32lookup failing at QRZ when restarting Logger 32 and the computer for the first time of the day. When this fails, actually had to set another setup in the Toolbox, Setup internet callsign lookup and then select and Start that one, shutdown the program and then restarted it and it would work fine… But when I shut down the computer then it would have to reselect a new setting in the Toolbox…

    Seen this before?

  17. Hi Rick,
    when i use “show map” button on QRZ.COM details page, i see this error message:

    “Le navigateur que vous utilisez n’est pas compatible avec l’API JavaScript de Google Maps. Nous vous recommandons de changer de navigateur.”

    it seems that it’s a known issue even not yet resolved. Can you please tell me if there is a solution (even temporary)
    thank you

  18. Orrin..
    Sorry for the delayed response..
    If you would before you close Logger32 and the lookup for the day in the Lookup turn Debug On. Now when you open the Lookup the next morning it should catch where it is stopping. After it does that in the directory where the Lookup is installed to you will find a file called L32LookupsDebugLog.txt send that file to me so I can look thru it to see where it is getting hung up. send it to

    Sorry for the delayed response..
    What OS are you using?? I have no trouble clicking on the Show Map button and the map displaying correctly. I’m using windows 10 which is using the most current explorer engine. The only thing I can think of is you are using an earlier OS which the browser engine is not compatible with google maps.

  20. Hello,

    I just upgrade to the new version and installed on HTTP. Working great but the email is not sync between QRZ and the lookup window.

    By the way, tnx a lot for this userfull app.


  21. The email address is not available to the scraper. It is hidden by a javascript application that can only be triggered by mousing over the email address.

  22. Hi Rick.
    There is a Error message when I loading online lookup:QRZ has returned the following Error message. Username/password incorrect. How can I change the username and password?
    Thank you very much.
    VY 73 DE BD1RCR

  23. with windows explorer switch to the directory where you have installed the lookup application. Double click on the L32Lookups.exe program and when it opens select Setup and the setup window will open. you can select what version of the lookup you are using and change your username and password on the same window.
    Do not try changing the username and password in the .ini file. This will result in the wrong password being used.

  24. Hi ERIC,

    Nice to meet you.
    My name is Satoshi Okada.
    Thank you for providing a great application.
    Please let me know if it is convenient for you.
    Do I need to sign up for XML to take advantage of this application?

    Best regards,

    7K1JRC/K1JRC, Satoshi Okada

  25. Hi..
    No you do not need to sign up for the XML subscription. The only requirement is you need to be a member at QRZ but don’t need to XML Subscription.
    When you setup the program you will want to choose the HTML lookup. This will parse the HTML pages of QRZ to get the information about the looked up call. QRZ will also limit you to 150 +/_ look ups a day. If you have the XML subscription your look ups will be a few seconds faster and you have no limit to the number of look ups you do in one day..

    73 Rick N2AMG

  26. Hi Rick,
    Thank you for a quick reply.
    It works fine!
    Thank you for the advice.

  27. Can’t get l32lookups to work since computer rebuild. Windows 10 is up to date. So is Logger32. Trying to use http not xml. All I get is a browser (?) screen with header about:blank and the message that site is not secure. More information button says certificate is not secure. No option to go on anyway. A last line says Error 0. I normally put the program in C:\Logger32. Just now I uninstalled it (again) with REVO and installed it in C:\L32Lookups\ but got the same result. I would appreciate help.

  28. Bud..
    I have had one other report of this but I have not found what is causing it. Nothing has changed that pertains to the browser in over a year. I am guessing that this is being caused by a recent windows update but I am still looking. Possibly adding L32Lookups.exe to the firewall settings. I am not experiencing this on my 2 computers. I will keep looking to find out…

    73 Rick N2AMG

  29. Rick – Thanks for the reply. Please do keep looking. FYI: I do have exceptions for logger32’s folder, logger32.exe, and l32lookups.exe in my virus checker which is AVAST free.
    73 VE6CSX

  30. Try adding it to the Windows Firewall. Open the firewall on the control panel and on the left side should be an entry for adding a program to the firewall. After you add the file make sure it is added to all 3 zones. (Public,Domain,Private) After you add the entry you should reset your computer so the firewall update can load when it restarts.

    Let me know if that makes a difference..

    73 Rick

  31. Rick – I put logger32.exe and l32Lookups.exe in private and public for windows firewal, but i don’t have a domain option. restarted the computer. Nothing changed.
    73 Bud VE6CSX

  32. I’m not sure what is causing this. I will try to do some googling today and see if I can figure out what is going on with it..

    73 Rick N2AMG

  33. Bud.
    I’m not sure if you had seen my posting in the Logger32 group but here is what I posted:
    If you have downloaded the latest build I have posted of L32Logsync and have had certificate issues I would like you to download this test file and see if it corrects the issue. It’s hard for me to code this as it does not happen on my system. The file is a zip file, you will need to extract the file and place it into the directory where you have installed L32Lookups.exe.

    Please let me know if this corrects it. If not I will google some other fixes..

    73 Rick N2AMG

  34. Rick,

    Howdy from the mountain of western NC. Using the L32 lookup utility, is there any way I can get the county name to display and then paste into the L32 county field on the QRZ subscriber window. I use the XML service/subscriber.

  35. Hi Larry..
    I have to apologize on taking so long to answer this. I usually get a notice when someone has posted and I did not receive one when you posted.
    The county should already be passed to Logger32. I will take a look and see why it is not. Are you using the latest version??

    73 Rick

  36. Hi Rick
    Since a few days “Name ” content is not displayed any more in the logger32 qrzlookup window .
    73 Roland ON6HH

  37. Download the latest version above and it will take care of the problem. QRZ made a change to their page so I had to make adjustments to the program to capture it again..

    73 Rick N2AMG

  38. I use XML lookup with your app. I was in a qso and trying to log it when a popup said download in progress. Immediatly the app crashed and I could not log the qso. Now I get an error saying unable to find qrz lookup module. Logger 32 works manually but no lookup. QRZ was no help amd i rebooted your app, but still no auto lookup. Any help would be greatly appreciated. TU, Doug k6kmn …..

  39. Not sure where the Download in progress came from as I searched my app and that text is not shown in it anyplace. Are you running Logger32 using the Run as Administrator setting?? If so you have to run the lookup using the same setting if not Logger32 will not be able to find the app and communicate with it..

    73 Rick N2AMG

  40. I’m new to L32.. I noticed the QTH (city) info and county are not populated in the log. Can these be included in a later enhancement? Thanks 73 de WB4M.

  41. Hi Buddy..
    The QTH info is filled into the address field of the L32 Entry window. Where the QTH field is showing click the … button next to it and it will rotate to the address field. This is where the qth info is shown. There should be no issues with the county unless you are using WSJT. At times WSJT clears the entry window before the contact is logged and when it does that the County info is lost. Bob said he corrected this in the very latest update of Logger32 so make sure you have that. To test to make sure it is working correctly enter my call into the Entry Window and press TAB.. When the lookup takes place and the fields are full take a screenshot showing me all of your Logger32 screen so I can check it out. You can send it to my email address of

    73 Rick N2AMG

  42. Hi Rick,
    QRZ HTTP Lookup latest version does not transfer neither first name nor full name. Other fields are transferred correctly.
    Pse any advice. Running Logger32 ver.3.50.420 and latest L32Lookups created by update process.
    73, Milan OK1DMP

  43. Milan..
    Are you sure you have downloaded the latest update. There was a release made in the middle of July that fixed this issue because QRZ had changed their page format. check to make sure you are using version If not download from the L32Lookups page and install it..

    73 Rick N2AMG

  44. Hi Rick,
    you are right – I used older version but installed by update process so I did not check the version in use. Now works correctly.
    Thanks for your help and 73,

    Milan OK1DMP

  45. I have been trying to install the lookups program on 3
    computers. In all cases I get the following – ” Unheard of exception occured in your application – con version from string 2020-09-12-12-12 This comes up when starting l32 although l32 runs fine without the lookup program running. Joe VE3JG

    Josep G Parkinson

  46. Hi Joe..
    a couple of questions..
    A. What OS are you using??
    B. Do you have any other programs running when you are trying to run the installer for the lookup program.
    C. Can you send me a screenshot of the error you are getting. You can send it to me directly at
    D. I am not understanding when you say Logger32 runs fine without the lookup running but it error’s out when the lookup is running. Do you have the lookup successfully installed or not?

    73 Rick N2AMG

  47. A. windows 10 latest update
    B. L32
    C. No windows will not allow me to copy what is displayed.
    D. L32 does not error out there is an option in the error report that allows you to continue without the program running.

    I will try to get you a copy of the error report other than copying.

    My laptop computer ran fine with an older copy of the program but when I updated the error appeared.
