Subject: [dxlab] DXKeeper 2.9.5 is available

Compared to the most recent pubic release (2.9.2), this release

- correctly determines the WPX prefix from callsigns with /MMn
and /AMn suffixes where N is a digit

- accepts alphanumeric characters in the Capture window's RST fields

- forces characters entered into the Capture and Main windows' RST
fields to upper case

- ensures that the printer is properly initialized when QSL card or
label printing is initiated by clicking the Preview window's Print
button

- provides an operation that performs a callbook lookup on every QSO
visible on the Log Page Display, filling in missing information or
optionally replacing existing information

- sets maritime mobiles and aeronautical mobiles to an empty DXCC
prefix and country code 0, updates award tracking and progress
reports to include or exclude mobiles as appropriate, and adjusts the
Broken filter to ignore QSOs with a missing DXCC Prefix

- doesn't allow active QSO information in the Capture window to be
overwritten by a double-click on a SpotCollector Database entry
without giving the user the choice of first logging the Capture
window QSO information, overwriting the information, or discarding
the overwrite; QSO information in the Capture window is considered
live if a QSO start time has been established, either by clicking the
Capture window's Begin button or by entering a received signal report
(if the "Set QSO start when RST rcvd" box on the Config window's
General tab is checked).

- updates the Configuration.htm, index.htm, and Log.htm online
documentation files


From the Main window's Log QSOs tab,

* clicking the CBA button will query the selected Callbook database
for name, QTH information, and address information and add these to
the current QSO, but will not overwrite fields already containing
information [pre-existing functionality]

* depressing the Ctrl key while clicking the CBA button clears the
current QSO's name, QTH, and address fields before updating these
fields by querying the Callbook [pre-existing functionality]

* depressing the Alt key while clicking the CBA button, updates every
QSO in the Log Page Display by querying the selected Callbook
database for name, QTH information, and address information without
overwriting fields already containing information

* depressing both the Alt and CTRL keys while clicking the CBA
button will replace the name, QTH information, and address
information in every QSO in the Log Page Display by querying the
selected Callbook.

Note that applying the latter two operations to large numbers of QSOs
will take significant time, particularly if you haven't copied your
Callbook's database from CDROM to a hard drive. 3000 QSOs took around
15 minutes with my RAC database on a hard drive.

Maritime mobiles are callsigns ending in /MM or /MMn where n is a
digit; Aeronautical mobiles are callsigns ending in /AM or /AMn where
n is a digit. Entering one of these callsigns in Capture window or
the Main window's Log Page Display will set the country code to 0 and
clear the DXCC Prefix. The Maidenhead and VUCC progress reports
include QSOs with maritime mobiles, but not QSOs with aeronautical
mobiles; the WPX progress report includes QSOs with both maritime and
aeronautical mobiles. All other progress tracking and reporting
ignores QSOs with maritime and aeronautical mobiles.

My thanks who tested the predecessors of this version prior to its
release.

This release is available via http://www.qsl.net/dxlab/download.htm
or via this reflector's Files area.

73,

Dave, AA6YQ
