It is important to note that if you have operated from a single location
covering more than one grid (i.e. a 2 or 4-way grid boundary), you should
upgrade your TQSL configuration file.  You do this by logging into LotW,
going to "Your Certificates" and clicking on the "Download current TQSL
Configuration file."  Even if you downloaded the "latest" TQSL, you may
still need to perform this update.

If you create a TQSL "Station location" containing more than one grid
(seperated by a comma and space,) your grids beyond the first grid may get
depreciated.   Several stations, including myself, have witnessed this
behaviour.  To test it, go create a new station location with two grids.
Example: "DM00, DM01"  Save that station location.  Go back into it and see
if both grids appear.  If only the DM00 grid appears, you need to update
your TQSL Configuration file per instructions in above paragraph.
