Re: [Dx4win] Update on Updater

2012-03-15 Thread Alan Sewell N5NA
I haven't been following the Updater thread too closely so I'm not sure 
what the problem has been.  I haven't run the updater since December I 
think.

I just ran it.  It says I have version 4.6 and said I have the latest 
version.  It proceeded to update 7 files.  Checking my Save directory it 
looks like the files updated.

I'm using XP Pro SP3.

 Good news:

 I pulled out my laptop running Windows XP which is fully up-to-date on
 fixes and I can duplicate the problem there too.

 Bad news:

 The fix I tried, which makes the program work on Windows XP, does NOT
 work on Windows 7.


 1.  If you have the update problem, were you running Windows XP or
 Windows Vista/7?

 2.  Does anyone running Windows XP *NOT* have the problem?  This is
 also important information.


 I know the Perl libraries have some issues with Daylight Savings Time.
   I thought I had fixed this last fall, but apparently not.  It may not
 be fully fixable without re-writing the program using a Microsoft
 compiler, which I just don't have time to do.

 Maybe the fix is something like if the file on the web sit differs
 *MORE* than one hour from the file on the computer, then it needs
 updating.  I hadn't thought of this as a possible solution until
 right now.  This means if I release updates, they must be more then
 one hour apart.  I think  I can live with this restriction.

 Thanks - Jim

Re: [Dx4win] exporting/importing TR4W log data into DX4Win

2012-03-12 Thread Alan Sewell N5NA
Tod,

Try AD1C's adif2dxq program.  You can download it at 
http://dx4win.ad1c.us/adif2dxq/index.html.

It supports a number of state QSO parties.  It will convert the county 
abbreviation to the proper format to import into DX4WIN.  Just be sure 
the county in your ADIF file is in the CNTY field.  If not, do a search 
and replace on that field.  For example, my logging program puts the 
county abbreviation in the SRX field.

Import the output file using the DX4WIN8 or DX4WIN6 filter for whatever 
version of DX4WIN you're running.

 Anyone have a filter and process for moving data from TR4W into DX4WIN?

 I have made a couple of attempts at producing filters with significant lack
 of success so far. I found that the ADIF input will work for some of the
 contests logged by TR4W. It does not seem to work well for the QSO parties
 because the states are loaded into the QTH field but not into the State
 field.

 I have not yet tried a modified ADIF filter; it could be that doing that and
 loading the State field [as well having the QTH field load as is done
 currently] will handle the QSO parties.

 Loading the counties is also desirable, but I am not sure how that should be
 done.

 I suspect there is someone out there who has solved these problems. I would
 like to get pointed in the right direction.

 Tod, K0TO

A work around would be to use the Master Lookup window.  Download the

 This contest I only worked abt 100 Q's so I can easily remove the 6

 How did you log the call and QTH?  What version of DX4WIN are you using?

 If the QSOs are the same *except* for the County, I believe that
 DX4WIN 8.0x will NOT think they are duplicates.

 Have you tried running this program on your log to convert the contest
 abbreviations to real ADIF county names?

 In fact, this program will create two QSOs out of the county line, and
 will add 1 second to the second QSO.

Re: [Dx4win] Questions re:Spots and Group Names

2010-02-24 Thread Alan Sewell N5NA
I was just playing around with this for a few minutes.  It's a round 
about way of getting there but see if this will work.

1,  Under the File menu select DatabasesReports
2.  Click the New button.
3.  Name it Group Names (or whatever)
4.  From the Available Fields select Group and Groupname
5.  For the Sort Index select Group
6.  Click OK.  You should now have a report format called Group Names
7.  Now go to Preferences
8.  Click the Rep/Lab tab
9.  For the Default Report Format select the report format you just 
created, Group Names
10.  Save your Preferences
11.  Now go to the Window menu and select Logbook.  It will show the 
Group and Groupname for each QSO, sorted by Group.
12.  Right click on the report and select Write to File.  That will 
create a CSV file.
13.  Open the CSV file with Excel.
14.  Do a search in Excel help for delete duplicate rows.  Follow 
those instructions.

You should end up with a list of your Groups and Groupnames.  It's not 
as hard as all those steps makes it sound.  If you have more QSO's than 
the number of rows Excel will handle you may have to split the CSV file 
with a text editor such as EditPad.

 can I pipe that information out to another program (automatically,

 my iPhone?

 There are so many cool applications on the iPhone and so few for
 amateur radio.  It would sure be nice to see more for ham radio.
 Ultimately, I'd love to be able to remotely control my station through
 the iPhone AND be notified of important spots when not at home as
 well.  Anything out there I don't know about?

Re: [Dx4win] dxw 8.01 BUG? key board

2009-08-14 Thread Alan Sewell N5NA
Confirmed here as well.  Tested with version 8 and version 7 and got 
same results as Mel and Oms.

Windows XP Pro, DTR set to CW keying, RTS set to None.

 Interesting Dave. I tested using a COM port and the first two letters

 when using the COM port only. BTW... using XP Pro. It works fine with a

 formatting the CW.

As a work around, I uninstall and then reinstall the new version and not use

This places new entries into the log dxl file in the upgraded version folder.
Not being able to use the ini file from the previous version adds a lot of work

Does anyone have solution for comparing 2 DX4WIN log files to find entries

Short version of the story. Somewhere along the line a lot of the state data

was deleted from many of my U.S. entries. By the time I discovered it was
too late to go back and use one of the back up files as they all had the
same change. Plus I also have added many more entries between when the
incident occurred and when I discovered it.
 
Up until now I had been manually going through each log entry to correct.

However, last night I found an older log file that is still intact with all
the correct state data. Now if I can just find some way to compare the files
and make notes of the differences it would help speed up the process of
fixing the file.

You'll need to import the names into the Notes For This Call field.  
Just open your ADIF file in a text editor and do a search for whatever 
ADIF field has the name and replace that field name with NOTES.  If you 
want something to import into the Notes For This QSO field then use 
COMMENT as the field name in the ADIF file.

I also noticed that although I did input my grid square and  Lat/Lon info, my

any QSOs first!

F8 search for K in prefix field and 0 in callsign field (you must use substring 
matching).  Generate labels for these QSOs only, then print them.  Do the same 
thing for #1, #2, #3 etc.

Portables will mess with this, but it's better than nothing.  Or you can search for
