> Confirmed = Light Gray > Worked = Red or Med Gray > Not Worked = Black OK, it seems you want to INVERT the colors. I think what I can add two more check boxes: 1. Confirmed/Checked same color 2. Emphasize Needed grids (or something like that) It sounds like you would want both boxes

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

I would go to Jim AD1C excellent website: https://dx4win.ad1c.us/appnotes/lotw.html and follow his instructions. 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.

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

Very nice Jim, thank you!! May I make a (radical) suggestion about color? For quick reference purposes, Confirmed and Checked are pretty much the same. Not Worked, and Worked but not Confirmed are important. How about this for colors: Confirmed = Light Gray Worked = Red or Med Gray Not Worked

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

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

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

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
