[Dx4win] File Issues

2020-06-20 Thread William Osborne
I am trying to fix a ver 8 DX4WIN installation for a friend.  It was working 
fine for years but he tried to do an upload using TQSL and sent the wrong file 
to TQSL (maybe his log file but I am not sure). Now when he starts DX4WIN only 
the narrow window at the top opens up with all others closed or off the screen 
and when he tries to open his log file using the file>open command from the top 
line it returns ("windows cannot open this type of file").  He is running Win7.

All help greatly appreciated.


Thanks,
Bill--K5ZQ

Re: [Dx4win] Comments in logbook?

2020-06-20 Thread Tim moore
I might be missing your pointbut there aere already two fields in the
QSO window for each QSO made. Notes for this QSO and Notes for this Call
(if I remember correctly, I don't have the program loaded on this
computer). So are you talking about some other kind of comments? I use them
frequently. When I work someone with the same radio as me, I'll put a
comment in the QSO in one of those fields. When I get a new radio, I add
comments like "first 6 meter contact on new FT991A"or "he's using same
microphone as me"and on and on, etc, etc.

So are you talking about something different? Because there are already TWO
comment fields as the software already is. So I'm a bit confused what you
are asking foris it something different

See if this helps:

I found this in an E-mail from 10 years ago.  This option doesn't seem
to be available on DX4WIN 9.0x but may/should work on 8.0x:

if yes, your packet window is somewhere outside your screen. You must play
with "Leave all windows in original position" in screen tab (uncheck, save,
check, etc. until you see the packet window).

[Dx4win] Create VUCC Map from DX4WIN Award Listing

2020-06-20 Thread Jim Reisert AD1C
Hi Folks,

I started to work on this utility again after several years.  This can
be used anywhere in the world, not just USA.  You can see an example
of the current output here:

http://dx4win.ad1c.us/VUCC/ad1c_2020-06-18.pdf

The coloring is slightly different than before:

- Black means Checked (credit given by ARRL)
- Green means Confirmed (but not yet submitted)
- Red means worked but *not* confirmed

You may also notice a blue outline.  I just added this option
yesterday.  It is for the Fred Fish Memorial Award from ARRL (FFMA):

https://www.arrl.org/ffma

I like to keep a printed copy near my operating position.  For me, it
works better than using F8 all the time.  There is one problem that I
need help with.  As you can imagine, color works *great* if you have a
color printer, but what happens if you only have a monochrome
(black/white) printer?  I printed the color result on a monochrome
printer we also have in the house.  The problem was that both the red
(not confirmed) and green (confirmed) squares appear to be the same
color (sort of a light black or dark gray).

My proposal is for users who need to print the map on a monochrome
printer, that I will use RED only for unconfirmed grids.  Grids that
are either confirmed or checked will show up in the same black color.
This is to make it easier to identify grids you may need to re-work.
Presumably, grids that are already confirmed are of "no interest".

If you have any opinions, let me know.  I've put up a beta version of
the current release.  You can download it from here:

http://dx4win.ad1c.us/VUCC/VUCC_v3.1_20200620.exe
http://dx4win.ad1c.us/VUCC/  - documentation etc.

You may need to download/install this Microsoft library as well (the x86 link).
