Ref: POB 88.

When I was stationed at Kodiak Alaska there were times we would interact (to 
put it nicely) with Russian Bear bombers near Adak and Attu with our USCG 
C-130's. My mail came thru the Coast Guard mail room. One day I was called into 
the C.O.'s office where our base security officer was holding a letter from POB 
88 and had me open it in front of them. They knew I was a Ham and I had to do 
some explaining why a Russian Ham was sending me his QSL card. I could have 
lost my Top Secret clearance.

Re: [Dx4win] Cannot start after update

I concur. DX4WIN lost my Country file once and would not open
correctly. I have DX4WIN on two computer, a laptop for when I travel
and the main home PC. I went to the laptop and copied the country file
from it to a thumb drive, then copied this country file to the main PC
and all was well. I then went to HELP> Check for updates and updated
the latest country file.

It sounds like your country file may be corrupt.

See if you can download the file for DX4WIN 9.x here and extract

Re: [Dx4win] How do I reset the label flag on 1600 QSOs

2020-06-22 Thread Alan Zack
I just want to throw in that if you discovered the mistake before you saved the 
log you can exit without saving and the Y will be gone when you reopen DX4WIN. 
In other words the log will reopen to how it was before you made the changes 
but did not save the changes. A warning will come up when you attempt to exit 
telling you the log has been modified and do you want to save the changes. You 
would click NO and the log is saved to as it was before you made the change. In 
your situation you would need to import the N1MM contest log again without 
having it set the labels to Y. But that might be easier than setting dates, etc.

When I import a contest log or do other stuff to my log like LoTW stuff I 
always go to FILE>SAVE AS and right click my dxl file and send it to a USB 
thumb drive. Then if I mess up my contest import I can always go back to where 
I was before by reloading my saved .dxl file rather than using the new modified 
.dxl file that I made a mistake to.

First of all you need to select these QSOs. I assume that these are between 2 
dates.

So go to file>preferences>QSO and be sure  that in QSO Date you have "Range". 
This allows you to select QSOs between 2 dates. Save and exit

Then press F8 and write the 1st date. Enter and write the 2nd date

Now you have selected the QSOs you want to clear label flags.

Go to QSO window QSLs>Clear QSL Label flag

You will have been asked if you want the filter, you need to say yes.

That's it

Re: [Dx4win] ADIF file

2020-06-22 Thread Alan Zack
Like you guys, I do a monthly (or after a contest) upload to LoTW,
QRZ.COM, ClubLog, and eQSL. All goes well. I am not a real eQSL user
but do my uploads for those who may desire my NV cfm thru eQSL.

After reading this I decided to try to download my eQSL confirmations
from the eQSL website to my DX4WIN file. All seemed to go well (I had
to convert their file to an adi file for DX4WIN to accept). But after
the download using eQSL>confirm eQSL using ADIF file the download the
eQSL cfm flag had changed to Y for every QSO in my log, even some made
just a hour ago. I knew this could not be correct so I exited from
DX4WIN without saving so the eQSL upload. I don't know what I did
wrong uploading the eQSL website adi file to DX4WIN to make the eQSL
CFM flag go to Y for each and every QSO. I am not concerned as I said
I am not a eQSL user, I was just curious of how it would work.

Hola Luc,

There is an easier way.

In the QSO Window, LoTW | Export to LoTW.  This function uses the LoTW
and Upload Date fields in the logbook to remember all the QSOs you
have already submitted to LoTW in the past, and creates a new ADIF
file containing only the NEW QSOs since the last export.  You can then
upload this same file to *both* LoTW and eQSL (and QRZ and HRDlog if
you so choose).  There is no filtering involved, as long as all your
old QSOs have already been marked as uploaded to LoTW.

This same flow applies using eQSL | Export to eQSL, but I never do
this, because the same ADIF file for LoTW can be used for eQSL.

This is an old application note, but most of it still applies:

I would go to Jim AD1C excellent website:

There are slight differences between ver 9 and earlier versions but
you should be able to figure it out. Other wise email me and I will
put together a little checklist of how I do it.

Re: [Dx4win] Missing Contacts

2020-06-22 Thread Alan Zack
When you work with LOTW or other such stuff always check afterwards in
the SAVE AS folder that you are using the DX4WIN/SAVE folder. For my
purposes I use a separate LOTW folder to save my LOTW adif files.
Afterwards, If I am not careful my SAVE AS folder will open to my LOTW
folder and I will start saving my .dxl file into the LOTW folder
instead of the DX4WIN/SAVE folder.

You might also check your DROPBOX, if you have one. My .dxl files also
get saved in my dropbox.

Do you have more than one log or more than one DX4WIN installation?

Are you opening up the same log from multiple places (at once), i.e.
over a network?

Re: [Dx4win] Comments in logbook?

2020-06-22 Thread Alan Zack
Yes, I agree with Jim. All kinds of info can be placed in the NOTES THIS QSO 
and NOTES FOR THIS CALL. For example, today I worked NB6GC. To further 
memorialize this QSO in the NOTES THIS QSO Window I entered Op: Jeff (as this 
is a club station there could be many different ops). In the NOTES THIS CALL I 
entered: USS HORNET AMATEUR RADIO CLUB. So if was to look up this call again in 
DX4WIN I would know when I last worked it, what the call represented, and the 
op at the time.

Another example. I work the Bulgarian Saints stations (there is a new saint 
every month). Today I worked LZ734PA, The current monthly saint station. In the 
NOTES THIS QSO Window I entered Bulgarian Saints. I enter Bulgarian Saints in 
this window for every saint station worked. 108 since 2008, some multi 
bands/modes. That way I can easily find which and how many Bulgarian Saints 
Stations I have logged. In the NOTES THIS CALL I entered The name of the 
current saint for the current month. For June 2020 it is Bulgarian Saint 
Propodobni Petyr Atonski. Every month there is a new saint featured. You can go 
to http://www.lz1kcp.com/ to see who is the saint of the month. I am already on 
the Honor Roll so need more actives to keep me busy on Ham Radio so I now 
collect IOTA's, museum ships, Bulgarian Saints, and some others.

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

Check out Jim, AD1C, excellent help page:
https://dx4win.ad1c.us/appnotes/lotw.html

I always follow this when I do my LOTW uploads/downloads

Jim has other excellent programs such as:
https://dx4win.ad1c.us/appnotes/contest.html
That I always use after a contest to add contest QSO's to DX4WIN.
Remember to use a new group number to identify one contest from
another.

We do not pay Jim enough for all his software support.

Hello all.

I am attempting to upload my entire log 13K plus qsos to LOTW.  Many
were made and logged to DX4WIN before there was a LOTW.

I used the LOTW in DW4WIN to set all upload files to Y.

Then using TQSL I attempted to sign and upload all qsos to LOTW.  The
program indicates that no qsos are signed and/or uploaded.

What am I missing.

Tnx in advance

Re: [Dx4win] Lost Contacts

2020-03-23 Thread Alan Zack
This sometimes happened to me when I do an ADIF contest log input to
LOTW and then download my latest updated LOTW QSO info back into
DX4WIN. What appeared to happen is after doing the LOTW
download/inputs my latest DXL file got saved into whatever contest
folder I took the contest ADIF from to do the excellent ADIF to DX4WIN
conversion provided by Jim AD1C.

My suggestion: do a windows search for your DXL file (in my case I
search for k7acz.dxl). You may find another DXL file lurking in
another folder someplace you did not suspect.

After working with LOTW I always go to FILE>SAVE AS and check to see
what folder my saved files are going to. If I see a contest folder or
some other folder shown in the SAVE IN window instead of SAVE I change
it back to SAVE as it should be.

A personal hint of what I do: If you want to do a quick back up of you
DXL file open FILE>SAVE AS and find your DXL file. Right click on the
DXL file (or any other you may want to save) and select SENT TO. You
can then send a copy of the file to a thumb drive, ext HD, etc.

Another hint: When I do my LOTW upload to the ARRL website I use the
same ADIF file that DX4WIN made for LOTW and import it to ClubLog,
eQSL, and my QRZ.COM logbook. Yes, I know DX4WIN will make an input
file for eQSL but I find my way faster and easier since I already have
an ADIF file to use.

Re: [Dx4win] Disaster

2019-11-01 Thread Alan Zack


Carol

Check to see what file your log is in. 
Open SAVE AS window and look what folder your .DXL log is shown in. It should 
be in the DX4WIN/SAVE file. But sometimes when working with importing contest 
files this will get changed to something dealing with your contest files. For 
example, your SAVE AS file may open to your WRITELOG/N1MM, etc folder instead 
of DX4WIN/SAVE. This frequently happens to me when I import my contest adif 
files from ADIF2DXQ. My SAVE AS save folder gets changed to the adif2dxn 
folder. I know how and why this happens and then reset the SAVE AS to look at 
the SAVE folder. Yes I know I can save the result of my adif2dxn conversion to 
the SAVE folder but I do it my way.

You can also type (yourcall).dxl in the windows search box and see what 
locations it may be found.

HINT: Before I make changes to my log (import contest files, export to LOTW, 
etc) I place a thumb drive in my PC USB slot. Then I open the SAVE AS/SAVE 
folder. I right click on the DXL file and a drop down menu opens. I click on 
SEND TO and send a copy of the current DXL file to the thumb drive to keep it 
safe..

Carol,

Not sure how you can loose all your QSOs when importing a log. The only way to 
do this, as far as I know, is to start a new log using the same name as your 
regular log.

DX4WIN keeps various backup copies of your log; see on-line help in the section 
“files”

[Dx4win] IMPORT errors

2019-10-10 Thread Alan Zack
Using Ver 9.0.6.1230
 
This may have already been addressed but when I updated my email from
Outlook 2007 to Office 265 Outlook version my email got messed up and
I can't find the info I need.
 
I noted when I did my latest LOTW update using Jim, AD1C, excellent
instructions I got some new results I had not seen before.
 
The first one was when I placed "IMPORT" for a search in the NOTES FOR
THIS QSO field I got many many GRID SQUARE= errors but no grid square
number was shown. In the past if there was not a match the import
error would show the grid square the DX station provided to LOTW so I
could correct it in my log. But now there is no grid square shown so
what am I supposed to place in my DX4WIN GRID field?
 
Next, when I check the REVIEW QSO's NOT FOUND under the F column I now
see a new notation, the letters U and C. I have searched the help
files but could not find what the notation U or C mean in the F
column. In the past there was only an X or . (period) in this F
column. 
 
I am guessing when these changes were made Jim gave an explanation but
thanks to MS forcing me to update to 365 I can't find it
 
TIA and 73
 
Alan, K7ACZ

Now I cannot open my IOTA and SAME CALL windows.
My WINDOWS drop down menu has these four selections with a check mark:

I do not see the IOTA and SAME CALL windows. The COUNTRY and WORLD
MAP, as well as all other sub windows (SUNRISE/SET, LOGBOOK, STATE,
COUNTY, ZONE, etc), open and close as normal but I cannot find the
IOTA and SAME CALL windows. The quick answer would be they are hiding
behind another window but I don't have any other windows open. Are
they hidden beyond the edges of the desktop somewhere? How do I find
them?

[Dx4win] Callsign: RU5D/6

2019-07-07 Thread Alan Zack
Several days ago I did a monthly log upload to LOTW. I use the same
ADIF file to send my log to ClubLog, my qrz.com logbook, and eQSL.
Normally I will receive a feedback email from ClubLog and qrz.com
telling me my file was accepted and added to my databases.
 
This time ClubLog did not like my RU5D/6 entry. It changed it from UT
to UA. I am using ver 9.0.6 1228 which logged RU5D/6 as UT. I changed
it to UA in my log.
I looked at my LOTW record for RU5D/6. It is not confirmed so it does
not tell me if LOTW accepted RU5D/6 as UT or UA, only that it is part
of my record.
 
Here is the report from ClubLog:  
 
Callsign: RU5D/6 Date: 2019-05-19 02:28:20   Band: 40
QSL: No
Your log claims UKRAINE. Overriding your choice and using EUROPEAN
RUSSIA.
 
If you logged RU5D/6 you may want to make this change.

Re: [Dx4win] Version 9.05 available, window options not working

2019-06-26 Thread Alan Zack
That fixed it! Here are the details for future reference:

I went to C:/DX4W904  note: when I did the update to 9.0.5.1221 it used the 
DX4W904 folder. It did not update the folder to DX4W905. I see no problem with 
this

I opened the SAVE folder

I found the CONFIG.DAT file and renamed it to CONFIGXX.DAT

I opened/started DX4WIN

Only the main QSO window opened (as expected)
When I opened the WINDOW drop down menu I observed none of the options had a 
check mark. As I placed check marks in front of COUNTRY, IOTA, SAME CALL, WORLD 
MAP (one at a time) the windows opened and I was able to move them to where I 
wanted to place them.

I closed DX4WIN and went back to C:/DX4W904 /SAVE and observed there is now a 
new CONFIG.DAT file. I deleted the CONFIGXX.DAT that I had renamed.

I reopened/closed DX4WIN several times and all is FB.

TU again Jim for all your help

Is it the DX4WIN file you are looking for there?
Or is it the contest log file you try to find there?

Depending on your contest log program, you have to save an ADIF file
somewhere. That ADIF file can be imported to DX4WIN via the menu File

Import/export  and in the new box File -> Import (be sure that you
have
marked ADIF in the first line).

[Dx4win] DX4WIN Support

2018-07-10 Thread Alan Zack
I just wanted to give Paul a big shout out for his very quick and
accurate fix to my DX4WIN program crash.
Yesterday afternoon I had performed some QSL functions and closed the
program. Later that evening I tried to open DX4WIN and it crashed. A
little window opened concerning the crash and asked if I wanted to
send a text stating my problem (bug report). I replied in the
affirmative, my email opened, and the text was sent. I went to bed
wondering what had caused the crash and what I will need to do to fix
it.
 
This morning when I opened my email there was a message from Paul
telling me what to check for and what to do to fix the crash. His
advice was right on, I followed his instructions and am now 100
percent back in business.
 
For you inquiring minds the crash was caused by my country.dat file in
my SAVE folder going away. (I don't know why or how). Paul told me to
look for a copy in my BACKUP folder. I found it and copied and pasted
it into my SAVE folder. WaLa, DX4WIN now opened and performed normally
and all my changes made yesterday were still in place. I did a quick
HELP>UPDATE which gave me the current country.dat file that makes me
all current.
 
Thanks for the BIG help Paul!

Re: [Dx4win] DX4WIN and QRZ Lookups

2018-05-12 Thread Alan Zack
Correct me if I am wrong but doesn't that only work for USA Calls? If you click 
on UPDATE QSO in the CALLSIGN/MGR window for a DX call nothing happens. For a 
USA call the info is filled in.

If you hit F3 it brings up a Window with all that same info (IF.you
have it configured correctly to do so under Preferences>Ext Data>Online
Callsign Lookup). You have to have not only the proper URL info for
QRZbut also your password and userid for QRZ. Once you get that
configured right in Preferencesand you hit JUST F3 (not Alt F3that
brings up your web browser and the QRZ website)...then "Update QSO" in the
bottom right corner of the popup windowit will populate that info into
the QSO window. HOWEVER, currentlythere is a known bugwhere the
info gets lost when you enter/save the QSO. The KP (known problems and
workarounds)is to bring that QSO back up AGAIN after saving ithit
F3 againhit "update QSO" again...but THIS time, hit F10 and it will
repopulate that same info again. THIS timesaving itit will stay.

They are supposed to be working on a fix for that.

Not sure if I understand what you are requesting but I can pass on
that when I upload a contest ADIF file to DX4WIN using Jim's ADIF to
DX4WIN little program I assign it a GROUP NR. Then when I use the
DX4WIN print QSL Labels function I click on Print Group Names and the

I do NOT hit enter after typing in VERSION for the call. When you type
VERSION in the call box the QSL Mgr window will fill and show the date
of latest revision and the CTY window prefix will show the designation
that Jim used for that revision. Once you have noted these entries
simply highlight VERSION and hit delete and it goes away without
becoming part of the log

If you press enter after typing "version" in the log window, you will
log
that as a contact and will later have to go back and delete it.

If you go to preferences/qso and check Callsign update,  the desired
results
will show up in the country box and in the qsl mgr box without
pressing the
enter key.  This way you won't have to go in and delete the contact
you just
logged.  

Another plus of checking this box is that as soon as the first few of
letters of the call of someone you want to work is entered, the
country will
pop up.  You won't have to type in the whole call to see what country
it is
from.  Handy if you just want to know the origin of a call.

Hope this helps.

Re: [Dx4win] DX4WIN.CTY country file Release #18.5 - 22 March 2018

2018-04-10 Thread Alan Zack
I would like to just interject a little note here.
Reading all the posts it seems many people are having problems with
the latest CTY files.
If you read the release notes that Jim places on his CTY release
emails it will tell you what to look for after an update.
For example I go to HELP (on the main menu) and click check for
updates. If there are updates I allow DX4WIN to install them.
I look at the release notes so I can confirm I have the latest CTY
file. To check for the latest version type VERSION in the Callsign
window and hit return. The version notes says I should see Tanzania,
5H for the country, which it does. In the QSL Mgr box it shows
22-MAR-2018, which is the date of the release. If you see these then
you know you have the latest CTY file. This update function of Ver 9.0
is so much better than the previous update methods.

Re: [Dx4win] New DOK number

2018-02-10 Thread Alan Zack
Thank you Uli,

My question came from my contact with DK200MARX, who gave me a DOK (DLD) of 
200KM, which is listed in your referenced excel .csv file.
My confusion came from the difference between regular DOK's with a LNN and the 
special DOK's with a different numbering system. The DX4WIN logger tracks only 
the LNN DOK's. I know it would be very difficult for Jim AD1C to keep up with 
the special DOK's so when I work one I add a note in my NOTES FOR THIS QSO for 
a special DOK. I only have a couple Special DOK's so there is no problem for me 
to track them separately.

Maybe you could ask more DL OPS to show their DOK number on QRZ.COM. I have 996 
unique DL calls in my log but only 106 of these show their DOK number on 
QRZ.COM. That makes it difficult to qualify for the DARC DOK Award.

Subject: Re: New DOK number

Hi YLs and OMs,

in Germany we have two kinds of DOKs

1: Standard DOK which have always one letter an two numbers. The format is LNN. 
The letter stands for the district and the numbers run from 01 to (thoretical) 
99.

2nd: Special DOKs which are divided in several subgroups:

2.1: personal SDOKs for

2.1.1: our mebers of the board; they have VO

these SDOKs are temporary unlimited till the owner leaves the board, then the 
SDOK ends

2.1.2: the chairmen of any district (and his deupties); they have DVx, where x 
means the letter of the district (see also 1.)

these SDOKs are temporary unlimited till the owner leaves the position, then 
the SDOK ends

2.2: Special DOKs for Special Event Stations

these DOKs are only valid for so called club stations, which have to be 
registrated at DARC members database

2.2.1: time unlimited DOKSs for SES

they are used for several special groups inside DARC, for examples for YLs or 
YLs of an district, other, temporary independend activity groups

2.2.2: time limited DOKSs for SES

they are limited between two weeks and one year. They are used for examples for 
Fairs, Aniversaries of Cities, Clubs, Districts, VIPs and so on


In general, since 29.04.2012 the length of SDOKs is limited to six characters 
and/or numbers (german special characters are allowed, but till now only used 
one time). Older SDOKs have been long (and sometimes very complicated). At the 
moment I have knowledge from a 11 characters long SDOK, but I'm not shure, that 
this is the longest


The lists of SDOKs will be updated once per month at the end of the old or 
beginning of the new month. There is an CSV file, containing all SDOKs ever. 
The URL is https://www.darc.de/fileadmin/filemounts/gs/SDOK/SDOK_List.csv

Access should be possible without login into DARC's website.


I hope I could inform you a little bit about the structure of german special 
DOK.

Re: [Dx4win] DX4WIN crash, Missing IOTA Window

2018-02-10 Thread Alan Zack
Thank you Kostas, that fixed it. 

There were already some number settings there that I assumed sent the window 
into outer space. I replaced them with 0 (zeros) as you instructed. When I 
opened DX4WIN my IOTA window was in the upper left corner (the result of the 
zero settings). I was able to click and move it where I want it and all is FB.

I will definitely keep your email in my DX4WIN info folder in case it ever 
happens to another window. I did search the help files and opened the DOC: User 
Manual but could not find this info. 

Yours was the only response to my request. I could not figure this one out on 
my own but now I understand the process on how the windows remember where they 
are supposed to be positioned.

BTW you are in my log in 2005 and again 2010, and maybe as an OP from EP6T in

Backup everything in case something goes bad.

Close dx4win

In dx4win>save directory find config.txt

Open it with notepad and search for [W-IOTA]

You will see something like this below

HEIGHT=80
LEFT=0
TOP=325
WIDTH=312

but with different numbers

Write

LEFT=0

TOP=0

Save the config file, open the dx4win and go to preferences. Load the just 
saved config file and open iota window.

It should appear somewhere on the left top of the screen

Hello Jim,

VERY VERY LOW PRIORITY!

I tried this shortly after I rcv'd ur email but no joy.
I just tried again and still no joy.
I am at DX4WIN ver 9.0.4.1176 so shud have all the latest revisions/databases.

When I run Check Custom Awards I get the following warning for DK200MARX :

AWDERR: Awd=DLD AwdV= Msg=Award value is empty|Special-DOK: 2ØØKM

My DLD list shows A01-Z94 by numbers or by name G01 Aachew to M21 Utersen. It 
doesn't show any DLD numbers with more than three digits. Since these are 
special DOK's maybe they will not be on the regular DOK listing

I found current DOK/DLD list on 
https://www.darc.de/der-club/referate/conteste/worked-all-germany-contest/en/service/districtsdoks/.
 I also did find a list at: https://www.qrzcq.com/page/doklist but it does not 
show special numbers such as 200KM. Maybe you just add special DOKs to the 
application and let the DARC checkers figure it out. I am at 97 DOK's cfm'd

The new IOTA website is: https://www.iota-world.org/
I don't like it as well as the old rsgb website. I can't find stuff on

The old RSGB IOTA site is gone.  That site was the source of the
"fulllist.xml" file that is needed for DX4WIN 8.05 and earlier.  Until
I determine if that file still exists, you may encounter errors trying
to run the Updater.

Remember, this applies to DX4WIN 8.05 and earlier.  9.01 and later

Re: [Dx4win] Kosovo

2018-02-07 Thread Alan Zack
I had worked Z61DX in 2013 and 2015 and Z63MED in 2015. Both times the
D4W country window remained blank but I typed Kosovo into the QTH
window just for my info. But as far as I know they do not really count
for Kosovo before it became official.

Work first, worry later.  Your ability to work and log Kosovo stations
is not impacted in any way by DX4WIN.  Use paper/pencil if you have
to.

Shortly after there is an *official* announcement *from the ARRL*
regarding the DXCC status and start date, I will publish an updated
country file.  But not before then.

I fail to understand why everyone gets so wound up when these kinds of
things happen.  It's just a check box on a form, it's not a
life-and-death situation.

When you opened the REPORT GENERATOR window did you select ALL MODES?
If you have only CW or PHO selected that will be all that it will

I am using Ver 9.0.4.1176

I did an update yesterday on the new files provided by Jim AD1C

Now , in regards to the Z60A qsos I have made,  on 160 thru 15 meters

All qsos made since the most recent beginning date All contacts show
when I do a search Z60A Using F2 I have flagged all qsos as confirmed
( LOTW )

The problem is when I do a search of DXCC using the "Reports"
button, I see the new Kosovo listed in the DXCC total.

However when I open my DXCC page to show all dxcc counters for each
country , under Kosovo I only see an X for 40 20 and 17 meters

My 160,80,30 and 15 meter qsos are not X'd !

I have checked dates , made sure the calls were typed correctly etc

I have gone into preferences and all the bands etc are checked etc

I have the program running on a second PC and it shows the same
problem.

I am stumped, any thoughts from anyone ?

[Dx4win] DX4WIN crash, Missing IOTA Window

2018-02-07 Thread Alan Zack
I have been using the new ver 9 since November last year with no
problems.
I recently connected an EXT HD to my PC via a USB connection. DX4WIN
has a provision for backing up to an EXT HD via
PREFERENCES/QSO/SECONDARY BACKUP. I clicked on this window and a list
of my files on my PC appeared. I scrolled down and clicked on my new
HD shown as F:  Before I could even save my changes DX4WIN crashed.
When I tried to open it again all I got was the little window that
will send crash data to Paul. I could never get D4W to open again. I
saved my ini file, license, and dxl files in a separate folder then
uninstalled D4W. I then installed a new fresh D4W. I seem to be back
to normal again. I used HELP/CHECK FOR UPDATES and updated to ver
9.0.4.1176.
 
Only problem is I lost my IOTA window. On my WINDOW drop down menu I
have COUNTRY, SAME CALL, IOTA, and WORLD MAP selected. I suspect my
IOTA window is open but is somehow off screen. I have moved all the
other windows around and closed them one by one but can't find where
the IOTA window is hiding. I am using a 22/23 inch screen. Any
suggestions on how to find it again?
 
And any idea why it crashed when I selected a EXT HD for my secondary
backup? It never recovered.
 
TIA

[Dx4win] New DOK number

Using DX4WIN ver 9.0.4.1176

Special event station DK200MARX shows on their QRZ.COM page that they have
been issued a special DOK number for their event: 200KM. 200KM is not listed
in the DOK/DLD list as a custom award value for the DLD award. 

How can I add it or just wait for an update in the file from Jim AD1C. Note

The "Fresh Install" also has all the data file updates that I released on
October 30.  Note that you can get these through Help | Check for Update.
In other words, there is no need to do a fresh install of
9.02 *just* to get the data file updates.

Also note that you will no longer be prompted to update (download) the
Sample log, if you have deleted it.

Re: [Dx4win] Options Callsign Update

2017-11-03 Thread Alan Zack
Ref: Ver 9.0.2.1134

I have a similar situation. In ver 8 with CALLSIGN/MGR F3 window open the
logged stations call would appear in the CALLSIGN window (with auto updates
clicked on). I could hit ENTER/RETURN and qrz.com would open to the stations
info. Now hitting ENTER/RETURN has no effect. But if I hit ALT+F3 qrz.com
does open so it seems my path is correct. (The path is the same as in ver
8).

Any suggestions please?

I had hoped in the newer version you would no longer have to hit F3 to open
the callsign lookup window. I had hoped it would function as all the other
windows from the WINDOW drop down menu so you could set it to open when you
start DX4WIN as all the other windows operate.

Solution:
 
That exactly is, what Lee Hallin, N7NU, has done. He kindly offered me to use 
my downloaded .CSV file for changing IOTA award flag (Mixed) in .DXQ file. 
After importing the updated .DXQ file into my .DXL log file, there were 
confirmed 741 IOTA group numbers out of 752, I had applicated for. Remaining 11 
IOTA group numbers I have updated by hand. It took minutes only, instead of 
hours or days before. 
 
The main reason for import fault in case of remaining 11 IOTA QSOs seams to are 
callsign changings made by IOTA application process, such as IK2DUW/1 
(application) => I1/IK2DUW (accepted) ore date/time differences.
 
I'm really lucky with obtained result and THANK OM Lee so much for the effort 
he has done to help a satisfied DX4Win user. May be, his solution is applicable 
for other user and other award flags also.

This is something I am interested in also having almost 500 IOTA's confirmed by 
RSGB/IOTA program.

 I am confused by your term: changing IOTA award flag (Mixed).
Do you mean the AWARDS flags in the main QSO window that you see by hitting F5 
until the window is fully open?
If so I don't see how that will accomplish the desired results.

Example: I worked FO/HA9RE/P on OC-131 in 2006 on 20 mtr CW. When I received 
his QSL I go to that QSO and changed the QSL status from M to Y. This changes 
the status in the IOTA sub window also from M to C. This tells me I have OC131 
confirmed by DX4WIN but not by RSGB/IOTA. So then submit my cards, IOTA Contest 
log, etc, to RSGB. I get a report back from them showing what IOTA's they have 
given me credit for. So to use my example of FO/HA9RE/P on OC-131 the RSGB 
report shows I have credit for that QSO. Then, if I desire, I must go to 
FO/HA9RE/P in my DX4WIN log and manually place a C in the IOTA Mixed column. OK 
so far. But years later I work TX5EG on OC-131 on 15 mtrs SSB. When I log TX5EG 
the award flag does not show that I have OC-131 already credited by RSGB/IOTA 
because it is a different band.

Another example, I work JA1ABC on ten different bands/modes (easy to do with JA 
contesters) and he sends me a QSL for a 20 mtr CW QSO. I submit his QSL to my 
IOTA card checker and I am given credit for IOTA AS-007 Honshu Isld. So let us 
say I place a C in the IOTA Mixed AWARDS flag box for that QSO entry. That 
shows I have that one QSO with JA1ABC confirmed for IOTA. But any other QSO’s 
with JA1ABC on a different band, past or future, will not have the IOTA Award 
flag marked as C. So setting the IOTA Award flag for one QSO is of no help to 
me. Rather I look at the IOTA sub window. There it will show what bands/modes I 
have AS-007 marked as C. This is very good info for me. It tells me if I need a 
QSL for AS-007. BUT, it does NOT tell me if I have credit with the RSGB/IOTA 
awards people. That info can only be found on their web site and on the .cvs 
file from their website.

One thing to consider is RSGB/IOTA only wants/needs one confirmed QSO for IOTA 
credit. There is no extra credit for new bands or modes. So I see no way of 
using the DX4WIN AWARDS flags to track your RSGB/IOTA credits.

A better way is to use the REPORTS> Awards=IOTA to track your IOTA's. But again 
that only shows what IOTA's you have worked (W) or have confirmed (C) in your 
DX4WIN log. I don't see any way of using the IOTA .cvs file to change the 
status from C to * to tell you that IOTA has been credited by RGSB. In my 
thinking you have to print out your My accepted all band QSOs listing from the 
RGSB/IOTA website and manually set the flags in the REPORTS> Awards=IOTA to * 
to show the IOTA is confirmed by RSGB. I don't see how your .csv file can do 
this except to use it to manually set the flag from C to *

All I do is I print out my WANTED REFERENCE NUMBERS listing from my IOTA 
account and use it as a check list like the old DUPE cheat sheets we had to use 
before computer logging to see if I need an IOTA or not.

Alan, K7ACZ

Re: [Dx4win] [WriteLog] CTY-2702 Country Files - 14 February 2017

2017-03-08 Thread Alan Zack
Yes, the old GARBAGE IN, GARBAGE OUT. Cannot be helped when the FCC database 
does not reflect the actual station location.

It seems KK9A holds several call signs all registered to his North Carolina 
address including WP2AA as a club call.
He placed a blurb on his WP2AA qrz.com page to the effect that all QSO's made 
with that call were from the U.S.V.I. but the FCC database reflects his N.C. 
address so of course that would indicate a CONUS U.S. station on any database.

This differs from a REAL KP2 station such as KP2XX who has an actual U.S.V.I. 
mailing address in the FCC database.

I was under the impression that you could only hold a KH6, KL7, KH2, KH3, KP2, 
etc call IF you had a mailing address to reflect that location. (That is why so 
many Filipinos and Japanese have PO Box mailing address in Guam or Saipan so 
they can hold KH2 or KH0 calls.) I thought maybe that only applies if the call 
is a 2 by 1 but my log shows many actual KP2 calls are 2 by 2 unlike KG4 calls 
when actual GITMO calls are 2 by 2 and KG4 2 by 3 calls are CONUS calls.

I worked WP2AA on four bands. I noticed that when I typed the call into the 
logger the first time it did not indicate a NEW MULT as it should had. After I 
logged it, I noticed it was logged as United States. Therefore, I edited it 
from K to KP2 each time I logged him.

Too bad KK9A did not notify Jim AD1C before the contest that he would be using 
WP2AA in the contest FROM USVI. I would think all serious contesters know Jim 
is the KING of the contest CTY databases. I suspect many folks missed this MULT 
due to the mix-up.

The FCC database has a stateside mailing address for WP2AA, so my software that 
builds the country files assumed the call was USA.  A country file release to 
fix this will be released Tuesday night, March
7 local time (after 0z March 8).

To fix WriteLog, change the country prefix of each WP2AA QSO from K to
KP2 and it will rescore the QSOs.

Re: [Dx4win] [WriteLog] CTY-2702 Country Files - 14 February 2017

2017-03-06 Thread Alan Zack
Jim and WriteLog users

I am using WriteLog ver 12.11D Nov 2016. I will upgrade to ver 12.15 (or
later) in time for the CQWWDX in the fall.

If I understand WRITELOG things correctly before each contest I start a new
contest log (example last weekend's ARRL DX SSB). Then I go to FILE>WEB
UPDATE and click on WEB UPDATE COUNTRY FILES. This places a folder
WL_CTY.ZIP in my C: PROGRAM DATA/WRITELOG folder. I go to this WL_CTY.ZIP
file and right click and select EXTRACT ALL. This then places many DAT and
BIN files into my C: PROGRAM DATA/WRITELOG folder. I go to the file
WL_CTY.DAT and open it using Notepad. I do a search for VERSION and find
VERSION= Mauritus 3B8. So I assume I have the correct CTY file in use. Am I
correct to assume this?

If so, I need to warn everyone who used WriteLog in the ARRL DX SSB last
weekend that the call WP2AA comes up as United States and NOT U.S. Virgin
Islands. I worked them on four bands and corrected my log from United States
to KP2 U.S. Virgin Islands after each contact. After the contest I went back
to the above mentioned WL_CTY.DAT file and searched for WP2AA. It shows
WP2AA as a USA entry WP2AA(5)[8].

What is strange is when I enter WP2AA into my regular logger DX4WIN it shows
up as KP2 U.S. Virgin Islands. But I have not updated my DX4WIN CTY file for
awhile so maybe the latest DX4WIN CTY file also has WP2AA mapped
incorrectly.

Just wanted to throw this out there for anyone who worked WP2AA in the ARRL
DX SSB

[Dx4win] LoTW: QSO's Not Found

2017-01-05 Thread Alan Zack
Using ver 8.05. 
 
I use the DX4WIN LoTW Export/Import feature to keep my ARRL LoTW database up
to date. Following Jim's AD1C excellent instructions I export my most recent
QSO's to LoTW named in the format LOTWmmdd_adi. Before the export I take
note of my number of QSO's currently shown on my LoTW webpage. After
exporting the file to LoTW I export the very same adi file to ClubLog, my
qrz.com logbook and eQSL. These sites do not care how I named the file and
readily accept my adif files as LOTWmmddyyy_ .adi to update my info on these
sites. For anyone not familiar with ClubLog if you export your log info to
their website and later you look up a DX call to see if you are in their log
and order a QSL via OQRS your contact info will be filled in, no need to
enter your QSO date/time/band etc info, it is inserted for you in your QSL
request.
 
OK, after exporting my most recent QSO's to the ARRL LoTW website I go back
and check the number of my QSO's now shown. If the new total matches the
number of QSO's I just exported I know my export has been processed
(sometimes this is very quick, may take several hours or even overnight). I
then use Jim's instructions to download the ARRL LoTW report to my DX4WIN. I
click the boxes INCLUDE DETAIL and STATION DETAIL. This usually works FB and
updates my LoTW CFM flags EXCEPT for the QSO's that do not have a match. I
then use the DX4WIN REVIEW QSO NOT FOUND feature and see a list of QSO's not
found and possible matches. This is where the confusion comes in. Most of
these mismatches do not make the LoTW CFM flag show a Y, but some do. I do
not understand why this is. Anyway I follow the instructions and correct the
mismatches. These are mostly because the state or counties do not match. So
I make the corrections to my log as needed to make a match. After I make the
corrections to have a match should I manually reset the LoTW CFM flag from N
to Y or will it be reset to Y when I import the next ARRL LoTW REPORT to
DX4WIN?
 
This has been a very minor inconvenience to correct the few QSO's that have
a mismatch and has been more frequent with NPOTA QSO's since these ops are
traveling all over and are at different locations for different NPOTA
contacts using the same call. For all my NPOTA contacts I made sure the
STATE, COUNTY, and GRID boxes were blank so my later LoTW REPORT would fill
in the blanks to avoid mismatches. But I still got mismatches based on
differences between STATE or COUNTY entries. I am wondering where these
STATE/COUNTY mismatches came from because my ADIF file to LoTW did not show
and STATE/COUNTY data (I double-checked). I expected my ARRL LoTW report to
fill in the blanks to avoid mismatches but it did not happen that way.
 
But my main question is should I manually reset the LoTW CFM flag from N to
Y after I correct mismatches or will DX4WIN do it upon processing my next
ARRL LoTW report?
 
And just a side note to anyone who worked AI8Z during NPOTA. AI8Z signed as
/5, /7, and /0 from various NPOTA locations and I logged him that way. This
is confirmed by his spots shown on DXSummit. But my AI8Z QSO's were not a
match with LoTW with the portable designations. I checked if AI8Z had made
uploads to LoTW with portable designations and found he did not so I made a
separate entry to LoTW for AI8Z without any portable designations and had
matches.

Re: [Dx4win] DX4WIN Data Updater re-write and feature request

2016-12-29 Thread Alan Zack
Many many moons ago there was a side instruction on how to save your current 
QSL Manager list and addresses so that the updater would not overwrite them 
(well, it does overwrite them but you had an option to save them in a separate 
file). I did save these in a separate folder in case I needed to go back to 
whom I first sent a QSL to. I am still doing that but am not sure if I am doing 
it the most efficient and quickest way.

Subject: [Dx4win] DX4WIN Data Updater re-write and feature request

Hi Folks,

I'm considering re-writing the DX4WIN Data Updater (porting from Perl to 
C/C++).  The main reason is to reduce the program (file) size from approx 5MB 
to something under 300KB (about 6% of the original size), as well as making it 
easier to debug.  I'll be cleaning up a lot of the code, and removing some 
features that I never finished or that never worked right.  I'll change it so 
that a failed download (like
eQSL) won't stop the update process to wait for user input before it can 
continue.  Plus, I can use a free compiler to build the program.

Is anyone using any of the following features in the Updater?  If not, then I 
will not implement them in the new version.

http://dx4win.ad1c.us/updater/index.html#options

–prompt : ask before updating each file

–auto : run Updater Program without graphical interface

keep-alive functionality.  I have never thought this worked very well,
the VE7CC user program does a much better job of this.

I'm considering adding the options described at the URL above as some sort of 
configuration menu  that you can access from within the program, but that's a 
low-priority item right now.  Getting the existing functionality working again 
is most important.

Here is a screenshot of what the new Updater may look like, subject to change, 
of course.

http://dx4win.ad1c.us/new_updater.png

I may have trouble supporting Windows XP, but Windows Vista and later should be 
fine.  If this is a deal-breaker for you, let me know.

If there are new features you want, please let me know and I'll try to 
implement them.  One new feature I want to add is a "Reset" button that removes 
all the downloaded files from the UPDATE directory.  This will force the 
Updater to download all the latest files if things get out-of-sync.

Support for ARRL National Parks on the Air (NPOTA) will be left in for the time 
being, but be disabled.  The framework I created (i.e.
sub-menus for Calendar and Membership Lists) is useful for adding similar 
features.

Please do not ask me when it will be ready.

[Dx4win] Importing my LoTW Confirmations into DX4WIN error

2016-09-08 Thread Alan Zack
I have just completed my monthly DX4WIN log download to LoTW. My imports to
LoTW went FB as confirmed on the LoTW page YOUR QSO's then clicking on the
most recent QSO or most recent QSL. I also confirmed that my QSO RECORD
count increased by the number of QSO's I imported to LoTW. (92)
 
BUT, when I tried to do the Importing of my LoTW Confirmations into DX4WIN
step there is a problem.
 
I waited until I was sure the LoTW program had processed my new QSO's by the
fact my total QSO count had increased by the amount of QSO's I had imported
(92 QSO's).
 
Then on the LoTW page, I clicked on DOWNLOAD REPORT. I saved the download as
LOTWREPORT_09072016.adi in a special LOTW folder I have on the desktop for
this purpose.
 
Then I went back to DX4WIN and attempted to import the
LOTWREPORT_09072016.adi file into DX4WIN. I have done this maybe a 100 times
before without a problem. However, this time DX4WIN gives me an error
message: 
IMPORT ABORTED BECAUSE OF DUPLICATE QSO CALL=MM0PAI/P DATE 08/31/2016. 
 
I opened my LOTWREPORT_09072016.adi file using NotePad and this is what I
see:

call.
 
I have never had this happen before. I tried deleting the
LOTWREPORT_09072016.adi and downloading a new DOWNLOAD REPORT but always the
same result. 
 
Why doesn't DX4WIN want to import my DOWNLOAD REPORT
LOTWREPORT_09072016.adi?
 
Any help/suggestions would be appreciated as I don't know where to go next.
 
The only thing different this time was that when I opened my TQSL link it
told me there was a newer version available and did I want to update. I said
yes then TQSL opened as usual.

Re: [Dx4win] Buckmaster question

2016-04-29 Thread Alan Zack
I use the RAC CD. It is a little tricky to set up and the links, etc, must
be set to the exact setting DX4WIN wants to see. BUCK should be similar.

My set up for the RAC looks like this:
DATA SOURCE: FLYING HORSE CDROM (from the drop down menu)
DATA DIRECTORY: C:\Program Files (x86)\Radio Amateur Callbook\ (I think this
is where you may have a problem as to where DX4WIN looks for the data)

As far as the dll set up I don't know. I use the golist. My DX4WIN is set

Re: [Dx4win] another question export log to club log

2016-04-04 Thread Alan Zack
Not a direct answer to your question but something to consider.

Do you make regular uploads to LoTW?
If so, just use the same ADIF file that DX4WIN created for your upload to
LoTW.
I use Jim AD1C suggestion and name the LoTW ADIF file as to the date of the
file. Example LOTW_04012016.
I take this very same file and upload it to ClubLog, my QRZ.COM log, and
eQSL. None of these programs care that the name of the file is LOTW_xx.
They just accept the ADIF file as an up load to their programs. That way
every time I upload to LoTW I do the same to ClubLog, QRZ.COM and eQSL. Just
be sure you use the ADIF file that DX4WIN generated for you and NOT the
LOTWREPORT file you get back from LOTW

It looks like you're right-clicking on the Report window and selecting
"Write to file", but that is not the way to go about exporting your log. 
In the main window, select File -> Import/Export, the ADIF format should be
on the top of the list - select File -> Export and choose a name. 
That should do it.

Re: [Dx4win] DX4WIN, LoTW, and the DXCC Award

2016-02-28 Thread Alan Zack
One thing to be VERY VERY careful about is when you import the file from
LOTW to DX4WIN be SURE you are using the LOTWREPORT file and not reusing the
file you sent to LOTW.
For example I follow Jim AD1C's style of naming my files. If I was to send
my latest QSO's marked LoTW=Y to ARRL today I would name my file
LOTW02282016.adi. After LoTW accepts my file I can download from LoTW my
report. I name this file LOTWREPORT02282016.adi. I want to be VERY sure I
import to DX4WIN from LOTW the file LOTWREPORT and not the original LOTW
file. If you import the LOTW file you sent to LOTW all your LOTW contacts
would incorrectly show C (cfm). You have to be careful to keep the two
separate. Sounds simple but if you get distracted or are not paying
attention it could happen.

Another reason to ALWAYS back up your call.DXL file before starting a LOTW
export/import or any other changes to the log. If you screw up you can go
back to before the mistake.

Subject: [Dx4win] DX4WIN, LoTW, and the DXCC Award

I would appreciate some help to more thoroughly understand in what ways
DX4WIN (v.8.05) "communicates" with the Logbook of The World program (LoTW)
and possibly also with the DXCC desk at the ARRL.  I haven't been able to
find answers to my questions using the HELP services in DX4WIN.

The ability of DX4WIN to export my logs to LoTW and for LoTW to send a
report of successful matches back to DX4WIN is wonderful.  It is not clear
to me, though, if DX4WIN also communicates with the DXCC desk at the ARRL
with regard to paper QSL cards that have been checked, submitted, and
approved.  Does DX4WIN have this ability as well?

What about the meanings of the letters W, L, M, C, S, and the asterisk(
"*") in the DXCC Listing report?

The "W" (for station worked) seems clear enough.

The letter "L" seems to mean that I put a "Y" in the box under "Label" in
the QSO window, asking DX4WIN to mark a QSO so that a label can be printed
later.  Does the "L" mean anything else?

The DX4WIN instructions say that the letter "M" means I mailed a QSL card
for a contact I made.  What is the "trigger" in DX4WIN that causes an "M"
to appear?  Is it that I have entered a date in the "QSL Date" boxes? Not
that I have put a "Y" indicating I want to create a label?  Am I right that
the "M" has to do only with my outgoing paper QSL cards?

The DX4WIN instructions say that a "C" means a QSO has been confirmed.
Confirmed by whom?  Is this because LoTW found a match to my QSO?  Or is it
because the DXCC desk knows I have a valid paper QSL card for the QSO and
tells DX4WIN about it?  Or is it because I have received a paper QSL card
and I have entered a "Y" in the "Cnfm" box?

Does an "S" (for submitted) mean that I have exported a QSO to the LoTW
program but a match was not found at the time of export?  If the other
operator exports his or her logs to LoTW after my submission, does LoTW
remember that I am still looking for a match?  Or do I have reset the upload
flag and clear the date of the original export in order to try again for a
match?  Does the "S" also signify that I have submitted a valid paper QSL
card to the DXCC desk at ARRL?

Finally, the asterisk ("*") is said to mean that the QSO has been approved
for the award.  Approved by LoTW (because LoTW found a match)?  Approved by
the DXCC desk at ARRL (because I submitted a valid paper QSL card?)  Or does
the asterisk mean simply that a matched (or Confirmed?) QSO meets the rules
of the DXCC award program?  Does the asterisk have anything to do with paper
QSL cards that have been checked and submitted to the DXCC desk?

I look forward to some help.

Re: [Dx4win] Print to File?

2016-02-28 Thread Alan Zack
I also use 5160/8160 labels. In the PRINT QSL window there is an entry for
MISSING LABELS. So if you have already printed and used some labels on that
sheet place that number in the MISSING LABELS box. If you have a sheet of 30
labels and you have previously printed and used 8 of them just put the
number 8 in that box and the printer will skip ahead and start at label
number 9. I do that all the time and it works great. I use a HP Officejet
Pro but the printer does not matter as long as it will print sheets of
labels.

Trying to print my QSL labels to file instead of the printer. Now where in
Help did I find where the file is saved. I use 5160 style by the sheet and
unless I am printing a full sheet (30 labels) there is always a lot of
waste. My thought would be to have the QSL data in file so I can manipulate
the labels in Word so I can use partial sheets when I am only printing a few
labels.

I am getting ready to buy a Canon all-in-one LazerJet so the next step will
be to experiment with printing directly to the card.

Re: [Dx4win] Missing QSOs

2016-01-04 Thread Alan Zack
Thanks Jim,

I think I am somewhat redundant also.
When I do a SAVE (ALT+S) my DXL and CTY file goes to DX4WIN/SAVE
When I do a BACKUP (ALT+B) I don't know where my stuff goes. I should know, but 
I don't
My SECONDARY BACKUP goes to a SD card.
I have Carbonite, QUICKEN BACK UP, and my ISP has a cloud at COX.NET. These 
three run a back up on their own schedule at least once a day, one of them is 
once an hour. I have my DXL file saved on those back ups. I have to admit I 
really don't know where they go and how to retrieve them if I need to but feel 
confident if I ever need to retrieve them Carbonite, Quicken, and Cox will be 
able to help me. Carbonite also has a mirror image backup on an Ext HD.

We have iPhones and have the Apple Cloud to save and share photos etc from the 
iPhone to the Apple Cloud. My in house WiFi (password protected) interconnects 
all my PC's laptops, tablets, iPhones, printer, and home security. I think I 
have it set to save my DXL file also.

My system is not as fast or complete as yours. However, being an EE guy and not 
an IT I don't understand all the newer IT technology or programming that I 
should. I don't want to say I'm getting old (72) but the XYL teases me when we 
go to an Air Museum and the actual planes I used to fly are now static display 
museum pieces.

Things have gone a long way since my first IBM Clone in the 1980's with the 5 
1/2 inch floppy disk that you had to insert in the drive for the PC to boot up. 
Everything was DOS then and you had a mess of floopy disks to insert to run 
programs. A year or so later HD's got cheap enough I could afford to buy one. 
The memory size was very small but now I could boot up and run some programs 
from the HD without messing with the floppies. My first logging program was 
WJ20 and first contest logger was CT, both in the DOS format. Before that, I 
remember in contests hand logging onto a paper log with paper DUPE sheets 
spread across the room, one for each band. At that time, I was a test engineer 
at Rockwell Intl working with the space shuttle, MX Missile, and B1B Bomber 
avionics. From what I understand today's iPhones, etc, have more computing 
capability and power that the Space Shuttle computers. Good thing the Vulcans 
decided to share their technology with us humans.

Subject: Re: [Dx4win] Missing QSOs

DX4WIN has two save locations:

1.  The SAVE directory
2.  The Secondary Backup Directory you can specify on the QSO tab of your 
preferences

#1 should *always* be a local hard drive, preferably one connected via an IDE 
or (S)ATA interface, not a USB interface.  You want your log to be saved as 
fast as possible.  This minimizes the amount of time you need to wait between 
exiting DX4WIN and shutting down your computer.

#2 saves at the same media speed as #1.  If you use a USB flash drive, then it 
will take DX4WIN longer to write the files to the secondary save location.

I gave up on using USB flash drives for backup years ago - they are just too 
darn slow for me.  They tend to "lock up" DX4WIN the entire time the files are 
being written.  I guess that's a good thing if you are planning on shutting 
down your computer.  It's not so good if you want to quickly save your log and 
work someone else right away.

Here's what I do:

1.  I leave my computer on all the time.

2.  I never exit DX4WIN unless I have to reboot.  My log is always open, but 
saved when I am not there (see #3).

3.  I try to remember to save (ALT-S) my log every time I step away from the 
operating position.  99.44% of the time at least.

4.  My Secondary Backup Directory is actually DX4W805\SAVE2, i.e. the same 
local drive as the SAVE directory.

5.  I use SyncBackSE to synchronize my entire DX4W805 directory to a location 
on my home's local area network (my development/office computer upstairs).  
This allows me to access the log from the other computer, as well as 
synchronize changes in both directions.  I also synchronize my WriteLog 
directory the same way.

6.  I have a local Acronis backup job on the ham computer that runs every 
night, to a USB-connected hard drive (Western Digital My Desk).
Note that I only started this a week or two ago!  I have never been unable to 
recover data from a crashed ham computer, i.e. I have never lost the hard drive.

7.  I have a local Acronis backup job on the development computer that runs 
every night, to a USB-connected hard drive (Western Digital My Desk).

8.  I use Carbonite to continuously backup my development computer to the cloud.

I realize the above is almost certainly overkill, but I have never lost my log, 
only a rare QSO here or there, mostly due to writing the log from the 
development computer, and forgetting to reload it on the ham computer before 
logging a new QSO.

Re: [Dx4win] Missing QSOs

2016-01-03 Thread Alan Zack
A long time ago I did a SAVE AS and changed the destination from the SAVE
folder to a thumb drive as a form of backup. I made some new QSO's and saved
and closed DX4WIN and removed the thumb drive. Next time I opened DX4WIN it
told me it couldn't find my DXL file as it expected to find the thumb drive.
I opened the SAVE window/folder and selected the DXL file found there. When
DX4WIN opened I noticed my most recent QSO's were missing. Then I realized
they had been saved in the thumb drive the last time I closed DX4WIN. I
copied the more recent DXL file in the thumb drive to the SAVE file/folder
and overwrote the older DXL. When I reopened DX4WIN all was FB. So if you
save your log DXL file somewhere else other than the SAVE folder as a means
of backup you may be creating a problem next time you open DX4WIN.

>From that lesson I now do the following when I want to copy/save my DXL file
in another place for example a thumb drive.
I go to FILE and select SAVE AS (not SAVE). This opens the SAVE AS window. I
find my DXL file (or any other I want to copy/backup).
I right click the DXL file and on the drop down menu select SEND TO>. I can
then select any other drive, etc, to send the file to, in my case mostly a
thumb drive.

As another means of safely back up I use my PC SD slot. I leave a SD card in
the PC SD slot all the time except when I might transfer photos from my
camera. I went to FILE/PREFERENCE/QSO. In that window there is a small
window SECONDARY BACK UP DEVICE. In that little window I put the location of
my SD card, in my case it is named drive G: 
So now my back up info is stored on the SD card.

Just wondering if anyone finds any fault in using a SD card in this manner.
My PC SD slot is not used 99 per cent of the time. Why not put my DX4WIN
back up files on it?

There is another, more sinister possibility.  If you worked them, and didn't
expressly do a save of the new data, then MS applied updates, causing a

soon as an entry is made, I do a CTRL-S to save the log, and often a CTRL-B

Re: [Dx4win] AH6U QSO

2015-10-29 Thread Alan Zack
I worked AH6U in last weekends CQWWDX. The current CTY file thinks it is a
US (K) call but QRZ.COM shows it is a Maui KH6 call. It appears to be a
recent reissued call. The RAC CD says the call used to belong to an YL who
now is W7SMP who had AH6U cancelled on 5/24/15. It looks like another ham in
KH6 had it issued to him on 6/13/15. As researched on the FCC ULS link.

Rick, K1MU has the correct solution.  But it will be broken again on the
next country file update.

Mark, what is the date of your QSO so I can research this and fix the
country file?  I am hoping to release a new one this weekend.

Re: [Dx4win] Error

2015-08-15 Thread Alan Zack
After going back and taking a second look I discovered the reason I could
not make any changes to my fonts, ext data, etc, was that DX4WIN had
reverted back to the REGULAR user level. I was able to change it from
REGULAR to EXPERT level and then was able to adjust back to my normal
settings. When I changed the font to where I had it and the scale factor
back to 100 the main logging window came back to the larger size I had
before so I can see it without having to have my nose to the screen.

I do not know how or why this happened but all seems well again.

I saved this email for my info in case it ever happened to me. IT DID happen
to me today.

DX4WIN has been working FB with no problems. I have not done anything to
change its configuration. I used Jim's DATA UPDATER program about a month
ago to bring everything up to date (his latest revision).

Last night I closed DX4WIN normally and shut off the PC. This morning on
starting up the PC and opening DX4WIN normally, I had the same problem as
Wayne did below: 
In my situation, the main window opened normally but the font was different.
Normally when I open DX4WIN my Map, Same Call, Country, and IOTA sub windows
open with the program. Today they did not open. When I try to open them
using the WINDOW drop down menu I get the error message. ERROR:  An
exception has occurred.  Fixed Column Count must be less than column count.
In addition, all my saved info in the PREFERENCE window such as my address,
my user level, my font settings, ext data, etc. was gone.

So as Jim suggested below I exited DX4WIN, went to my SAVE file, found the
DX4WIN.CFG file and renamed it xDX4WIN.CFG, and opened DX4WIN again.
Now I can open the MAP, SAME CALL, COUNTRY, IOTA widows OK BUT I still do
not have the settings in my PREFERENCE window as before.
BUT my main concern is my MAIN LOGGING WIDOW has shrunk. I use a 21-inch
monitor. My main log window before was 6 1/2 in by 5 1/2 in. Now it is 5 1/4
by 4 1/4 inches. I have to lean way forward to read it. Also in the
PREFERENCE/SCREEN window, I cannot change the FONT style or size. The scale
factor is stuck at 80. I want to change it to 100 but it will not change.

In my SAVE file there is a file named DX4WIN CONFIGURATION SETTINGS. When I
click on it, it opens with WORDPAD. I see all my preference data, such as my
address, fonts, ext data, etc, in this file. Why can't DX4WIN find this file
when it opens? Is that my problem?

Was some file saved in the wrong place? My PC uses WIN 8.1. Sometimes it
wants to save docs I am using to some place named ONE DRIVE. I have checked
there but there are no DX4WIN files there.

I do not know what happened. I also have DX4WIN installed on a laptop that
is still working OK. I will update my K7ACZ.DXL file and I will use it for
logging until I figure out what is wrong. Any help will be greatly
appreciated.

Re: [Dx4win] IOTA

2015-07-27 Thread Alan Zack
Hello Jim,

I remember seeing this last January and saved it hoping to be able to use
the info someday. The someday is now.

I just completed the IOTA contest last weekend and it made me think of
tracking my IOTA credits in DX4WIN. I presently have 394 IOTA's confirmed.
(They did a great job of card checking at Visalia last April). NONE of these
IOTA's show confirmed in the AWARDS section of my DX4WIN log window. I have
never tracked my IOTA's in DX4WIN other than typing in the IOTA number and
IOTA name into appropriate boxes when I log an IOTA contact. But I do
generate ADIF's files from DX4WIN to submit to IOTA.

As per your instructions below to Mike, R3BM, I went to your app notes. 

Something I don't understand that I am sure I am missing is how to enter my
IOTA data from the IOTA website into DX4WIN. I do not see any ADIF file
download to output to DX4WIN. They do provide a Excel CSV file but I don't
know how to download it into DX4WIN.

In reviewing the app note, I also decided it would be a good thing to enter
all my DXCC credits to DX4WIN. I come under the category you mentioned
under:  If you already have ARRL DXCC credits, but none of them are tracked
in DX4WIN, then start here instead I already have DXCC Award credits, but
have never tracked them in DX4WIN. What do I do? As you pointed out, I can
list all my DXCC credits from the ARRL LOTW webpage to manually update the
DX4Win log AWARDS window. One thing I learned in reading your app notes is
that I don't have to make notations for all my 42,697 QSO's in DX4WIN. If I
understand your example using EA correctly, if my DXCC records show I have
DXCC credit for EA1ABC on 20 mtrs SSB then ALL my EA 20 mtr SSB QSO's will
be flagged as CHECKED. Is that correct?  

However, I have 340 countries confirmed. That is a lot of typing and as you
stated prone to mistakes, which I am good at making.

What is the DXCC QSL Download file on the LOTW webpage? Mine has the heading
of: 
ARRL Logbook of the World DXCC QSL Card Report
Generated at 2015-07-27 23:28:21Z for K7ACZ and looks like this:

eor

And so on, and so on, and so on..for many many more
calls.
This is just for the call K7ACZ. I also have records for the call K6ACZ when
I lived in CA but my DXCC credits are combined since K6ACZ and K7ACZ are
both USA calls.

I might be making too big of a deal of this. I was afraid of trying to send
my QSO info to ClubLog and the QRZ.COM logbook and then discovered I can
just use the same ADIF file I send to LOTW to ClubLog, QRZ.COM logbook and
eQSL. So now every time I send an ADIF file from DX4WIN to LOTW I also send
it to these other entries.

Sorry for all the questions. I am an electronics person (BSEE). I can build
and fix radios, antennas, etc, BUT computers are not my forte.

Take your time (if you have time) to answer. Many questions here. I really
appreciate all your help over the years. Missed you at Visalia.

TIA  73,
Alan, K7ACZ

 Where it says DXCC, think of IOTA instead.

[Dx4win] QRZ.COM Logbook

2015-05-27 Thread Alan Zack
Is anyone downloading their DX4WIN log to the QRZ.COM logbook? QRZ.COM seems
to have a good thing going here. It saves your log to a cloud backup
provides another way of keeping track of your contacts and when the other
station confirms the contact. How are you doing the ADIF download to the
QRZ.COM?
 
Their user guide states:
 
The QRZ Logbook, available to all QRZ registered users, is a feature that
enables users to log their on-air contacts (QSO's) with worked stations into
QRZ's Cloud Database. The advantages of QRZ's database include the ability
to access your logs from any internet connected computer, anywhere in the
world. In addition, millions of other QSO's reside in the same database
providing for easy match-up and operating award verification. Either or both
of the parties of a QSO may enter a record into the QRZ database for awards
credit. 
Records may be manually entered or imported from ADIF files. The user has
full control over what appears in its logbook and may add, delete, or edit
any unconfirmed record at will. Periodically the system will compare the
user's records with all others in the QRZ Cloud Database and automatically
indicate confirmed status when matching records agree with sender/receiver
callsigns, band, mode and date/time within a 30 minute window. Confirmed
records are automatically applied to operating awards. Lacking a
confirmation, a user may choose to forward a confirmation request to another
QRZ Logbook user.

[Dx4win] DX4WIN and QRZ.COM

2015-03-22 Thread Alan Zack
I have DX4win set up so when I have a callsign in the F3 CALLSIGN/MGR LOOKUP
window I can hit ENTER and a QRZ.COM page opens for that callsign. This has
worked FB for me for about 10 years. Lately I have been having problems (not
a DX4WIN problem) with the way this is now working, or not working.
 
I am a paid subscriber to QRZ.COM and need to sign in to use it. But when I
open QRZ.COM I cannot stay logged in for more than a few minutes. I entered
the ARRL DX SSB and was going thru my QSO's to find addresses to send my
QSL's. I would sign into qrz.com, look up 2 or 3 calls then the next look up
I had to sign back in. Sometimes I can do a max of 5 lookups, sometimes only
one, then get kicked off. I have never had this problem before. Once I
signed in I stayed signed in until I shut the PC down. I tried the QRZ.COM
trouble desk and they tell me it is an IE problem and to try a different
browser. I do have CHROME installed and can manually open QRZ.COM using
CHROME OK. In DX4WIN Preferences/Setup/Ext Data in the Callsign Lookup
selection I have www.qrz.com/db/ which takes me to the qrz.com website using
IE. How do I redirect it to www.qrz.com/db/ on CHROME?
 
Again, this is not a DX4WIN problem but just a matter of how to tell DX4WIN
where to look for a database.
 
Has anyone else been experiencing this problem?

I asked Paul about this once not long ago.  The problem is that people will
forget their log was left in contest mode, and then wonder why things are
working differently when the start the program the next time.  A prompt to
discard would be good, unless you are a rush to get (re-)started.  IMHO, if
you're using DX4WIN to log a contest, you're not running at a high enough
rate that a slow restart would matter much.

Yes, I noted that DX4WIN automatically placed I in the DXCC and WAZ status
slots when I logged TI9/3Z9DX/MM.
He is working a lot of people. I wonder how many people are thinking the /MM
contacts while enroute to TI9 will count for TI9.

 I have a question in regard to logging a Maritime Mobile station.
 
 I am running 8.05 with Jim's (AD1C) latest update of Jan 28th.
 
 I have never worked or logged a /MM station in the past as a maritime 
 mobile station is not good for any DXCC entity so it has not 
 interested me in doing so. However, I was interested in working 
 TI9/3Z9DX/MM last night as he is heading to TI9 and that will be a new 
 one for me.
 
 Trying to log him into DX4WIN, it wants to put him in Cocos Is. and I 
 fully understand that. But being he is not there yet and enroute on 
 the ship it does not count for Cocos. I was looking to see if I could 
 Force the contact to another prefix entity but that would not solve 
 the problem either. Then I thought maybe there is a prefix listing of 
 /MM (Maritime
 Mobile) that would basically not count the contact for anything. But 
 as you guessed, not found. Is this an idea Jim could implement in his 
 next database update or is that more of a Paul update for the program 
 itself? I don't think you can leave the prefix field blank, can you?
 
 So anyway, how do you log a /MM station so it does not count for an 
 entity?
 Other than not logging it...
 
 Thanks,
 Brian - NX0X

Subject: RE: [Dx4win] Saving the log

I believe you somehow saved your .dxl log file in a different location other 
than the DX4WIN/SAVE folder. This can happen if you tell it to save the log in 
another location for back up purposes and by doing so change to .dxl file 
location. The program will go to that location until you reset it to look for 
the dxl in the save folder. This happened to me once.

When I want to do back up my dxl file I do this. Under FILE drop down to SAVE 
AS (not SAVE) and the SAVE folder window will open. Right click on your .dxl 
file. A drop down menu will open. Select SEND TO. Then send a copy of the file 
to any of the drives that will be shown on the attached window, including any 
thumb drive you might be using. I use this method to do a back up of the .dxl 
file to an external HD or a thumb drive. Doing it this way you are not changing 
where DX4WIN will look for the .dxl file when you start up the program. 

I ALWAYS do a .dxl back up to my ext HD before I make any major changes to 
DX4WIN such as updates, loading a contest ADIF/dxl file, LoTW 
downloads/uploads, etc. Then if I had a screw up I can revert to the backup 
file and start over.

Re: [Dx4win] Search external data...? QRZ.COM

2014-11-03 Thread ALAN ZACK
Luis,

 

In my setup the actual info shown in the CALLSIGN/MANAGER LOOKUP window comes 
from the RAC/Flying Horse CD data. I installed the RAC program to C:\program 
files\Radio Amateur Call Book (Actually the RAC install setup did it when I ran 
the RAC install program). In the EXT DATA setup window the very top slot has a 
drop down menu. The second item is: Flying Horse CDRom. Next to that is a slot 
to show where the Flying Horse CD info is located (C:\program files\Radio 
Amateur Call book in my case).

 

I can open the RAC window from my desktop anytime with no interaction with 
DX4WIN. But when using DX4WIN the RAC info is also available directly to the 
CALLSIGN/MANAGER LOOKUP window.

 

So what happens is the address from the RAC CD is shown in the CALLSIGN/MANAGER 
LOOKUP window. But then if I click on the callsign as I explained before the 
QRZ.COM page will open for additional info. I find that qrz.com has better more 
up to date info than the RAC.

 

I also have the GOLIST installed on my C: drive so I also get QSL info from 
C:\GOLIST\GOWIN32.DLL.

 

One more point. Right click anyplace inside the CALLSIGN/MANAGER LOOKUP window. 
A menu will open up. Be sure that there is a check (tick mark) besides 
AUTOMATIC UPDATE so the window will track the call currently in the main 
logging window. Otherwise it stays stuck on the last callsign that was entered. 
I think having AUTOMATIC UPDATE selected is the default but it won't hurt to 
check.

 

Good luck

 

Alan, K7ACZ

The callsign shown in the main logging window should now also appear in the

In the CALLSIGN/MANAGER LOOKUP window place your curser next to the callsign

Re: [Dx4win] ADIF

2014-10-04 Thread ALAN ZACK
Dwayne,

I would highly recommend you go to:
http://dx4win.ad1c.us/appnotes/lotw.html
and follow Jim, AD1C's excellent instructions for downloading your DX4WIN
log entries to LOTW. If you have not done so in the past I suppose you could
download your complete log. But remember the contacts you will be converting
to an ADIF file then entering into LOTW will depend on what you have
selected in the little LoTW box on the full main window of DX4WIN. If Y then
that QSO will be added, if N then it won't.

The DXL file is your saved QSO's in the log. It is NOT used for creating the
LOTW files. If you mess up the DXL file and have not saved a copy in a safe
place then your previous log entries will be corrupted or lost and gone
forever. As a bare minimum you should go to the main FILE menu, select
PREFERENCES, open the QSO tab, and assign a safe place in the SECONDARY
BACKUP DIR box. I use an ext HD for this. But whenever I am going to perform
some function such as doing an update using Jim's
http://dx4win.ad1c.us/updater/index.html sub program, or entering a contest
ADIF file into DX4WIN, or doing a LOTW download, etc, I also save my DXL
file to a thumb drive. I save the DXL file to a thumb drive quite
frequently. It is very easy to do. Plug your thumb drive into a USB port. A
little window will open asking if you wish to look at the files on the thumb
drive. Use this window to identify the drive number your PC has assigned to
the thumb drive (D: E: M: etc), then you can close the little window. Then
in DX4WIN go to FILE and select SAVE AS. A widow will open showing your DXL
file (ve6qx.dxl). Using your mouse right click on this DXL file. Another
small window will open. Then select SENT TO: and select the thumb drive and
COPY. If you already have a DXL file on the thumb drive you can tell it to
copy and replace or copy and keep both files (the last one you previously
saved and the current one). Your DXL file is now safe on your thumb drive.
It just takes four quick clicks and after you do it a couple of times it
will just take you a second to do it.

One last thought. Once you have uploaded your ADIF file to LOTW and after it
is processed you can get your report back from LOTW showing what QSO's you
have matches with and additional info about them (state, county, zone, grid,
etc). This is under Jim's instruction: Downloading the confirmations from
ARRL. You will get a report back from LOTW with the same ID you used to
upload your ADIF file. For example, say I uploaded my latest upload file I
named LOTW_10012014.adi (This is the date of the upload). I will get back
from LOTW the report file named LOTWREPORT10012014.adi. DO NOT MIX UP THESE
TWO FILES The very first time I did the LOTW upload I accidently used my
upload file (example LOTW_10012014.adi) as the report file and uploaded it
back into DX4WIN. When I checked my log I noticed everyone of my QSO's
showed confirmed by LOTW but none of them showed the extra info (state,
county, zone, etc) I expected to see. Then I realized what I had done. I had
saved my DXL file to the thumb drive after doing the upload to LOTW. So I
replaced my now corrupted DXL file with the known good one and then uploaded
the correct LOTWREPORT10012014.adi to DX4WIN and all was well. Had I not
saved my DXL file along every step of the way I would have been in BIG
trouble. So be careful to not mix up the file you send to LOTW with the
report file that they send back to you. They will have the same name except
the report will have REPORT as part of its name and will have a later
date/time. They appear very similar and if you are not careful they can get
mixed up.

Good luck
Alan, K7ACZ

I have DX4WIN on two separate PC's. When I want to update my log on the

SAVE folder.

But I have always wondered. When I do a SAVE besides the DXL file the CTY
and CFG files also show the date/time of my most recent SAVE. I wonder if I
should also cut and paste the updated CTY file along with the DXL file. I
don't want to move the CFG file because the second PC uses a larger screen

Re: [Dx4win] Possible log corruption

2014-09-28 Thread ALAN ZACK
I don't know what you mean by QSO's in the previously worked window. If
you mean the OTHER QSO's window here is an explanation:

Go to FILE: PREFERENCES. Then open the QSO tab. Check what setting you have
for SEARCHING CALLSIGN. If it is anything other than EXACT then calls close
to the one in the logging window will also show.

For example, I have mine set to SUBSTREAM. So if I search for K4M when that
call was used for the Midway Isld DXpedition K4M will appear in my main
logging window but in my OTHER QSO's windows calls such as any VK4M
stations, K4MIJ, K4MM, IK4MHB, etc show up. In other words any call
containing K4M will be in my OTHER OSO's window. What you see depends on
what setting you are using for SEARCHING CALLSIGNS. I would use the left and
right pointers on the top of the main window to scroll back and forth among
all the calls the search for FW5JJ is showing you. Some might be close but
NOT the same call.

I have 7 QSO's with FW5JJ but no other calls close to him show in my OTHER
OSO's window.

Hi All,

Since I started seeing Paul say he might work on a new version I started
thinking about features I could use:

1)Ability to email DX alerts to myself

2)Ability to sound a horn or some loud noise through the computer sound
system when a needed station appears in the cluster spots, this must be
selectable by band. This would be useful to me for 6 and 160 new countries
when I am somewhere in the house or office doing something else and a new
one shows up.

BTW, I have also downloaded all of the free trials of other programs I can
find and tested them. I found that DX4WIN is really a good program and
filling in all of the confirmed and/or checked status of 12,000+ contacts is
a very difficult thing to do.   So Paul, it you update occasionally I am
here to stay!

[Dx4win] QRZ.COM xml files

2014-08-17 Thread ALAN ZACK
I received an email from the QRZ.COM people advising me it is time to renew
my subscription (currently the ad free option). One renewal option is their
XML LOGBOOK DATA. They state: 

our XML Logbook Data gives real time callsign lookups to most logging
programs. This subscription is Guaranteed to Work with your logging program.

 

Is anyone using this with DX4WIN? Does it work?

TIA  73,

[Dx4win] Program shortcut

2014-08-14 Thread ALAN ZACK
Using DX4WIN ver. 8.05 with WIN 7 Home Premium 64 bit, Service Pack 1

 

I lost my DX4WIN shortcut icon. How do I get it back?

 

I had DX4WIN open and was preparing to upload my latest QSO's (mostly my
W1AW/1 VT and W1AW/2 NJ) to LoTW. I opened the TQSL/QSL program and it said
there was an update available (ver. 2.0.3) so I closed DX4WIN and downloaded
the new TQSL pgm and did the install. After I completed the 2.0.3 TQSL
install I went to reopen DX4WIN and noticed my DX4WIN shortcuts were
missing. I went to C:\DX4W805 folder, opened it and found the dx4win.exe
application start command. But instead of it having the yellow box with the
red yagi icon all it had was a white box with a window looking panel inside.
I right clicked on it and sent it to the desktop as a shortcut.

 

So how do I change this generic windows symbol to the normal DX4WIN symbol?
Inside my DX4WIN805 folder there is a DX4WIN icon but I can't figure out how
to make it change the shortcut icon. In older versions of Windows if I
remember right you could right click on an icon and change it from a list
that was saved someplace but in WIN 7 I don't see that option anymore. The
shortcut works OK but I'd like to have it show the DX4WIN icon. I have
turned off and started the PC several times but each time the bad icon comes
back.

 

Any suggestion please?

Re: [Dx4win] Label print problem

2014-06-20 Thread ALAN ZACK
Are all the QSO's you wish to print in the same GROUP?
For example I assign each contest I enter a separate GROUP name and number.
So if I worked you in the 2014 ARRL DX CW contest and also in the 2013
CQWWDX SSB contest and wanted to send you a QSL it would print 2 separate
labels.

Hope this helps. 73,

For some reason DX4WIN will only print one call to a label. It has always
printed multiple calls until this week.

I have opened Preferences and  find the settings unchanged.  

Under Print Labels / Edit the settings are  MAX QSO's = 3

Labels across = 3Labels down = 10   Under Preview the labels all show
only one QSO per label.

I have reset everything  and no change. 

Anybody have any ideas ?

Re: [Dx4win] DX4WIN to LOTW

2014-05-16 Thread ALAN ZACK
Thanks Jim, 

After doing a more detailed search I discovered about half the errors were
due to a bad frequency in the Freq (khz) box and the other half were bad
calls. The bad calls were actually years of Armed Forces Day calls such as
WAR, AIR, NNVR, NMC, NBM, etc, etc. I log them the same as regular calls but
they don't match the normal callsign format so LOTW rejects them. No problem
there as I would guess the Armed Forces Day special stations don't use LOTW
so I will just ignore those errors.

The bad frequency errors came from a 2004 IOTA contest log when I used the
free ED5DI IOTA Contest logger program. I forgot if I used the ED5DI ADIF or
Cabrillo file to upload to DX4WIN (this was before your great ADIF to DXQ
program). What it did was to cut off the actual frequency. Example, instead
of 14250.0 it downloaded the freq as 14.250 and then after the import in the
DX4WIN Freq (khz) window it became 0.01425 and so the error. Since they were
all in one group I just scanned through each QSO and wiped out the Freq
(khz) box and left it blank. I then resubmitted those corrected only QSO's
to LOTW and this time they were accepted using just the BAND info.

Every day you learn something new!

I have now submitted 26,254 LOTW QSO's for K7ACZ with 12,394 QSL matches. I
know many DX stations don't use LOTW so I won't have a match. But what if I
messed up the time or freq and that is why there is no match? Is there an
easy way to determine if the DX did use LOTW but my QSO does not match his
info? I will continue further with your Compare DX4WIN DXCC Credit Status
with LoTW program but it does not appear to be able to help me with
mis-matched contacts.

I have another 40K or so from K6ACZ in Calif before 2003 but I know I need
another certificate for a different call. I won't worry about those older
QSO's before 2003.

Thanks for all the help!

Alan, I think that's the best you can do.  The program for signing/uploading
logs does compare the BAND against the FREQUENCY if both fields are present
in the ADIF file, and reports errors if they don't match, as you saw.  In
your case, you'll have to assume BAND field is correct.

Are these from QSOs you logged in real time, or ones you imported?  If the
QSOs were imported, and you have the original source, we can try to find out
how to fix them.

Also note that if you export your log to ADIF or DX4WIN8 format, then import
the resulting file into a new DX4WIN log, it will also help identify these
kinds of problems.

Re: [Dx4win] Can't edit a call

2014-04-17 Thread ALAN ZACK
There is a little quirk to DX4WIN that when you change a callsign you must
hit F10 or scan down the QSO tab to UPDATE QSO. Hitting ENTER or RETURN
won't save the new callsign like it will for other changes.

Like you I made mistakes in my WriteLog CQWWDX SSB log. Think I copied OK
but typed call wrong. But was surprised how many DX stations copied me
wrong. Some of the big gun DX stations have such a fast rate it's no
surprise they bust calls.

couple went just as expected.

Then I get to EZ7ZK which I somehow fat-fingered into the log instead of the
correct EC7ZK.  I change the EZ to EC and tab over to verify that correct
country, zone, etc., is filled in, but when I hit enter to save the changes
nothing happens.  Once again, all other edits work just fine.  What am I

Re: [Dx4win] U.S Counties VA

2014-04-17 Thread ALAN ZACK
I was born and raised in St. Louis, MO. It is confusing because the actual
city of St. Louis is the County of St. Louis. The suburbs are St. Louis
County. At least that is how the tax structure is set up and the City
Stickers a sort of additional registration fee for city residents is set
up. If you live within the city you have to purchase and display a little
decal on your windshield. I notice the DX4WIN Mo F1 list shows MO95 for St.
Louis County (the suburbs) and MO96 for St. Louis City, (the city itself).
So St. Louis, MO, is not an independent city, it is an actual county that is
named in a confusing manner but is correctly listed by DX4WIN as a separate
county. I was born inside the city limits and my birth certificate shows St.
Louis in the county block. If I had been born in the suburbs it would say
St. Louis County.

Re: [Dx4win] A simple feature request

2014-01-07 Thread ALAN ZACK
My suggestions:
1. Allow the actual freq to be printed on labels as shown in the Freq (kHz)
window of the main logger window. ( 21.022 vs. 21.0) if it has been entered.
I receive QSL's with the actual freq printed on them. I don't know what
logger the sender has used.
2. Allow the Callsign/Mgr Lookup to open and close automatically with the
other windows selected. As it is you must click F3 after starting DX4WIN to
open the Callsign/Mgr Lookup window each time you open it.
Small stuff to be sure but if there are to be updates would be nice.

want to print envelopes. Some people have purchased a second tray so they
can quickly switch them but I don't print enough envelopes to justify that.
I am VERY happy on how little ink it uses compared to the Epson printer I

Hello,

 I finally updated my DX4Win from 8.04 to 8.05 version.

I noticed one minor problem with the F3 key function.

In the 8.04 you would press the F3 key and the station information would
come up. When you would log that QSO and type in another station callsign
the information for the new call sign would come up automatically.
Unfortunately with the 8.05 version one has to keep pressing the F3 key for
each new callsign that you enter.

 Is there is an easy fix in the Preferences window or is this a programming
issue?

73  Thanks,

[Dx4win] Printing Labels showing frequency

I've been poking around various HELP topics but can't find an answer to

I keep two separate logs, one for my home QTH and another for when I operate

did not keep separate logs my DXCC, IOTA, etc tracking would be messed up
because I might think I have a new CTY for K7ACZ that actually was logged as
K7ACZ/DU. When I look in my SAVE sub folder I have my main log, K7ACZ.DXL

Hal,

The group numbers work out very well for me. As said, I do maintain all my
DXpedition calls and PG5M contests in a single log, but using the group
numbers to identify the respective call/contest. Now with incoming QSL's, I
just type in the call and get all QSO's listed that I worked, regardless the
DX-call or contest. Next I can confirm the respective QSO's. A the time of
printing, I let the program also print the group number at the bottom of the
label (this is a tick box in the QSL printing menu). Now all QSL labels come
with the call associated with the group number. Example: You worked 3D2GM
or You worked PG5M CQWWCW. With all the sheets with labels in front of me,
I peel off the label and can see on what QSL card I have to stick the label.

The benefit of this process is that you don't need to run label printing for
each call sign. Especially when people send me QSL requests for different
call signs, I can confirm in one go, instead of opening different
logs/databases to check the different calls.

Gerben - PG5M

 Hal,

 To be more precise on how I handle this, do the following.
 You have your current log which may be called MASTER or N4GG (whatever 
 name you use).
 Assuming you have the other logbook already in an electronic format, 
 create a new log (File | New) and give it a name (you can use the call 
 sign for that log). Next you have to indicate the group number for the 
 QSO's in this log. Go File | Preferences | QSO, and fill 2 in the 
 Group field. I assume you have 1 for the first log.
 Next import all the QSO's into this log.

 Now you can handle the 2 different logs accordingly or you can merge 
 the two logs. To do the latter, take the following steps:
 First open the first log (MASTER or N4GG in this example).
 Next: File | Import | and chose DX4WIN8 I/E and chose from the menu 
 File | Import. Follow the next steps to select your file with the 
 second log and import it. Save the log.

 Now go to the menu and chose Filter | Edit Group Names (look in the 
 manual how to do this) and give a name to the group numbers. In your 
 case 1 is N4GG and 2 is the other call. Once ready, you will have all 
 calls in one log but you can see for which call the QSO is (assuming 
 you have selected group field in your logbook report.

 Success,

Re: [Dx4win] V8.05 PROBLEM

2013-08-20 Thread ALAN ZACK
Also after you save your log with all the latest changes go to FILE and open
the SAVE AS window and check the date and time of your .DXL file. It should
be the same date/time as when you just did the save. IF NOT, you are saving
the log in a different location. I learned this from a mistake I made years
ago when I accidentally changed my save location to an EXT HD as a means of
back up. After that my log kept getting saved to the EXT HD and not the
C:\DX4WIN file where it should have gone. After that, whenever I want to
back up my .DXL file I open the SAVE AS window, right click on my .DXL file
and then use the SEND TO function to send a copy of the file to other
devices.

 Save it as a 'save as' and rename it N4TJ-V8.05 as an example.
 Then when you restart DX4WIN it will automatically open that log.

When you try to Open a log in DX4WIN, you'll get the standard Windows open

Re: [Dx4win] Wish list

2013-08-01 Thread ALAN ZACK
I looked at HRD at the Visalia Intl DX Convention, even got a sample trial
CD. I was looking at a way to use RTTY and digital modes directly from HRD
where you could read what was being sent right within HRD and then send your
reply. But it seems really complicated. He was using 2 monitors full of
info. It would seem the learning curve would be big. When I asked how do you
do a lookup of a station that you have just logged or are presently in QSO
with it seemed like a difficult procedure on HRD whereas with DX4WIN you
just have to have the CALLSIGN/MGR LOOKUP window (F3) open and click on the
guys callsign and it takes you to his QRZ.COM lookup (or Buckmaster if you
have it so programmed). Very simple.

I'm not sure but is HRD both a contesting and a general logging program? I
am now using DX4WIN as my general logger and to track awards (DXCC, IOTA,
WPX) and printing QSL labels and N1MM as my contest logger. Jim has a FB
conversion program to convert a contest ADIF file to a DX4WIN.DXQ file to
import to DX4WIN. I just used it again after last weekend's IOTA contest and
DX4WIN now shows I logged a few new IOTA's.

Re: [Dx4win] FW: lost QSO's

2013-05-19 Thread ALAN ZACK
Dick,

One thing to watch out for. If you had the ~xb log saved in the memory
stick, renamed it, then had DX4WIN find it and load it from the memory stick
DX4WIN will now try to save your new log entries to the memory stick and not
to the regular SAVE folder.

You should do the following:

1. With DX4WIN open and running go to FILE and in the drop down window click
on SAVE AS. Your DX4WIN save folder will open. Click on KS0M.dxl and rename
it so it will be safe. Try a new name like KS0Mold.dxl.

2. Go back to your memory stick and copy the KS0M.dxl log file that is saved
in the memory stick.

3. Copy that KS0M.dxl file from the memory stick to the DX4WIN SAVE folder
and paste it there.

4. Now in the DX4WIN/SAVE folder you should have 2 log files, KS0M.dxl and
KS0Mold.dxl.

5. Close the DX4WIN log so that all you see is the small top window with
FILE RADIO HELP along the top.

6. Click on FILE then OPEN. Your DX4WIN SAVE folder will appear. Click on
KS0M.dxl then OPEN to open the logging window. 

7. Now with the logger window open Go to FILTER then COUNT and make note of
the total QSO's it shows in the KS0M.dxl log. Also look at the contacts in
the log and see if they look like they are all there. 

8. Now go back to the main FILE menu and click on CLOSE. The logging window
will close.

9. Repeat step 6 except this time select the KS0Mold.dxl (not KS0M.dxl)
file.

10. Repeat step 7 to compare the KS0M.dxl saved log to the KS0Mold.dxl saved
log.

11. Decide which one is the most accurate and make it your real KS0M.dxl log
file. There is a good chance they may be identical or there is a chance one
has more QSO's than the other. Whichever one you decide to use should be
named KS0M.dxl.

Now when you open DX4WIN it will look for and open the KS0M.dxl log file in
the DX4WIN/SAVE folder.

Hope this helps. Congrads on being 87 yrs old and still being able to figure
this stuff out. I am a young fart at 69 but still at times struggle. But we
were weaned on IBM clones with no Hard Drives where you had to stick a 7
inch floppy into the drive with the DOS program commands to let it boot up
then put in a different floppy to run a program. It was a big day for me
when I paid almost $200 for a 50 kb Hard Drive so I could put DOS on it so I
didn't need a floppy to boot up the PC.

Jim / AD1C

I finally have my full log back, thanks to you. I could not get the ks0m.~xb
file into DX4WIN at first. I finally saved it on a memory stick,  changed
the name to ks0m.dxl and then had DX4WIN open it and save it. All QSO's
through May 12 are now back in the log. It sure is a relief to get it all
back. It took me a while to understand what you were telling me. But, when
you are 4 months away from being 87 years old it just takes a little longer
to understand. 

I did put a call in the log and I did see the modified sign pop up. I was
not aware of why it did that.  It has been a while since I read the DX4WIN
Manuel JFrom now on it is backup, backup, backup every time I add calls.

Thank you very much for you good help.

 Jim,
 Thanks for the help. I have looked for all the  extensions ending in 
 .dxl and ~xl.  I can only find 3  .~xl and one (current) .dxl file.  
 The .~xl files are for February and March.
 I found a KS0M.~XB file and opened it in notebook. It was difficult to
read
 but I found some calls near the end and they are not in my current log.
How
 can I put this file into my DX4WIN log, or this be done ?

Copy it to a name with a .DXL extension, as I said:

 You'll probably need to search for all *xl files you can find.  The 
 latest/largest one is the best you can do.  You will have to give it a
.DXL
 extension for DX4WIN to be able to open it (if it's a .~xl, .dxb or 
 .~xb file).

Jim,

I hope that you were one of the volunteer software developers they recruited
to contribute to this project. I know you would do a good job. Funny they
don't mention these changes on the regular LOTW page
http://www.arrl.org/logbook-of-the-world.

I hope this will be an easy update. It took me awhile to get LOTW working
for me. I'd hate to mess up my present TQSL, TQSLCert and the TrustedQSL
files.

Re: [Dx4win] Help Wanted marked QSL`s not printing on first go

2013-04-26 Thread ALAN ZACK
After you mark which QSO's you wish to make labels for do you hit SAVE
(ALT+S)? You must save this configuration before doing a print labels. Also
I suggest in the PRINT LABELS window before you actually print under
DESTINATION hit preview to be sure the labels look like what you want and no
addresses run out of the box. Sometimes I have to make adjustments to the
address to make it fit on a label.

Subject: [Dx4win] Help Wanted marked QSL`s not printing on first go

Hello Fellow Dx4Win users and greetings from Wales.

 

I write to ask for help in sorting out a glitch in my Dx4Win version 8.05.

 

The problem is:  when I am confirming QSL cards sent in via the Buro using
the F2 key. All goes well until I go to print these labels. Then there is
nothing shown to print. But if I close the program down and reopen it all
the marked QSLs are there for printing.

 

Could anyone advise what the problem is that causes me to have to shut the
program down then open up it again before it will show my marked QSL`s for
printing.

 

My thanks to you all in advance.

Re: [Dx4win] Country Window Question

2013-04-14 Thread ALAN ZACK
Thanks for that info Dave. I did not know this. What I have been doing is
having to use the FILTER to select which band or mode I wanted and maybe a Y
or N for QSL Cnfm depending on what info I wanted. Your way is much faster
and easier. 

Just a note, be sure to hit CANCEL FILTER after your search or the log stays
in the search mode.

If you want to see all stations worked on a band, double click on the
appropriate band number on the top row.  If you want to see all the stations
worked on a specific mode, click on the appropriate mode box in the first
column.  If you want to see all stations worked for a particular country

  I have been using DX4WIN since Ver. 1.10, but just recently decided to
print labels since I started chasing the ARRL DXCC Challenge Award.  In the
Country Window, if there is a W under a band/mode, I can double click on
it to see who and how many QSO's I've had on that band/mode.  After I choose
a station the send a QSL and print out the label, the W becomes a M.  If
I now double click on that band/mode M, the only call that appears is the
call of the station I sent to for a card.  Is there some setting that I
missed to keep all the calls showing?  
If yes, please tell me how to change my present settings.
Thanks  73,

Re: [Dx4win] external data software such as hamcall, qrz, etc

I have found the best prices and service for the RAC from John on the
GOLIST: 
http://shop.golist.net/index.php
I paid $37.00 for the current Winter 2013 edition which came on a CD and USB
thumb drive.

He is presently out of stock for the current RAC. He takes orders in advance
then submits his order to Germany. But you could ask if he has any left
over.

I use his GOLIST for my QSL MGR info in the F3 window.
