I have had this response submitting files as you described, for ARRL with 2 
contests and at least one LOTW submissions. I tried two or three times to 
submit and kept getting a rejection response.

Raising this issue about 18 months ago here, some others said they had no 
problems. One or two others said they had a problem as you described.

I resolved my submission rejections by looking at the then current 
ARRL Cabrillo format I found online, and using Notepad, edited the SD created 
Cabrillo format file (the header was different but the logged contacts were 
fine) to look like what ARRL expected. I resubmitted and in the 3 or so 
different times this has happened to me, this editing resulted in a acceptable 
submission on the first attempt. 

Given so many others said the submitted successfully on their first attempts 
with the SD generated files, I have no idea why some of my submissions of SD 
generated Cabrillo format files to ARRL have been problematic.
