Re: Confirming 6m grids for users not on LoTW


Joe Subich, W4TV
 

Can you please elaborate on steps 2 and 3? Where are these located?
On the QSL tab, in "QSL Config" -> "General" -> Add Needed panel.

You had to have set all those values at some point.

I mentioned the FFMA initially since I'm also looking to confirm all
US grids, but I don't want to limit it to *just* FFMA counters.
FFMA *IS* all Grids for the contiguous US. I doubt that "All US
Grids" even makes sense if one includes Alaska/Hawaii.

I have filtered the display with the 3 conditions I mentioned up thread (only 6m QSOs with a date after Jan.1 2015 and not an LoTW
user).
You should need to filter only by "not LotW User" if you select
FFMA in the Awards box of the QSL Config dialog.

But the trick becomes how to filter it further to *only* include grids that have not been otherwise confirmed via LoTW by other stations. This is the part I'm having difficulty with.
If you are looking at grids worldwide, again selecting (filtering
the log) for "not LotW User" and selecting VUCC in the Awards section
of the Add Needed dialog should identify any needed cards (a card
is *not needed* if one already has an LotW confirmation).

This information (describing QSL Config and the "Add Needed" panel)
*IS* in DXKeeper's help files.

actually be able to accomplish what you want by:

1) Filter the DXKeeper Log display with:
App_DXKeeper_LotW_User <> 'Y'
2) Clear the "Add Needed requests" boxes
3) Clear the Awards boxes in Add Needed
4) Select *only* FFMA
Can you please elaborate on steps 2 and 3? Where are these located? It's been more than a year or more since I last did anything with DXKeeper except import contest ADIFs; I'm a bit rusty on where certain things are located.

I could add the condition of the entity being K or VE, but I'm fine with worldwide since I can send the non-US cards out via the bureau...most non-US/Canada are Italy, England, Scotland, Spain and Portugal.
