Re: REALLY MESSED UP LOG
+ AA6YQ comments below
My call sign recently changed I was Va7fc and now I am ve7dx
+ Instructions for handling this "event" are here:
... I did the bc qso party contest and up loaded my contest logs to DX ab ... But it didn’t insert station location and put old call
+ You could have accomplished that by specifying your station callsign in the "Substitution options" panel on the Main window's "Import QSOs" tab.
... so I tried to change it to Ve7dx thinking it was just the displayed page .
+ The first step in the instructions for using the "Modify QSOs" panel to make bulk changes is "backup your log":
+ Did you do that?
But it wasn’t I changed my entire log to ve7dx and station location !!!
+ Both the step-by-step instructions in the article cited above and the Reference Documentation for the "Modify QSOs" panel state that all QSOs in the Log Page Display will be updated:
I have over 80,000 qsos in the log ... and very dumb me haven’t done a back up since 2018...
So I tried Recovering lost qsos from lotw from the dx lab wiki but it does 10000 errors and stops I believe and it did change the call sign back but not the station location ...
+ Are you referring to this procedure?
+ If so, that would not correct your logged QSOs, it would insert duplicate QSOs into your log.
I really screwed this up !!! can you help me please!!
+ I'll wait for your answers to my questions above before suggesting next steps. In the mean time, I strongly suggest that you take no action other than reading the documentation.
