Type F8, then type any text you want to search for in either the
"Notes for this QSO" or "Notes for this Call" field.  DX4WIN will find
the QSOs whose notes match.

OK, that's indeed a good point. It likely would be hard to find notes in
random QSOs. I've never tried searching on those fieldsand I wouldn't
be surprised (don't have the software in front of me here on the work
laptop) if there is no search capability on the existing Notes fields.

2020-06-23 Thread Dan Violette
Yep, there are a few ways someone could do it.  I just think it would be hard 
to find the notes when they are inside random QSO records.  In a paper log I 
would add it to the middle of the row with blanks top/bottom.  Then a quick 
scan through the logs finds the notes.  I can see using personal call and then 
search your own call for the “station notes”.

You missed the point.

Tom meant non-QSO related notes (e.g., raised dipole to 60', new TS-990, new 
amp, North Korea added to deleted countries, etc.).  QSO related notes are easy.

I liked someone's idea about logging yourself and using that for personal 
station notes.  I actually still have a paper log handy where all it is used 
for now is station notes.  I should just use a notebook and can then file a lot

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.

Re: [Dx4win] Comments in logbook?

2020-06-19 Thread Mike Cizek
Use your own callsign. Then, when you want to search for notes (F8) just type 
your own callsign.73,Mike Cizek WØVTT Sent from my Verizon, Samsung Galaxy

 Subject: [Dx4win] Comments in logbook? Years ago, in 
the dark ages before we had electronics logs, it was very convenient to write a 
comment in the logbook. Something like “new dipole” or “new radio”. I would 
like to suggest a similar function for dx4win. Maybe have the program recognize 
and entry made with the callsign field starting with the #sign as a comment. No 
entries for qsl, etc. but just day, time, notes for this qso. Maybe the current 
frequency and mode. Items would appear chronologically in the log, but nowhere 
else. Not sure how difficult this would be, but it would be very useful, albeit 
only used occasionally. 73, Tom W4KXSent from my iPad
