I have only ever used my regular callsign since I started using the above programs. However, currently Canada is allowing a special prefix for the next 30 days to all who want to use them.
What is the impact of effectively changing your callsign in DXLAB ? on LOTW ? on EQSL ?
I only want to have one version of my log, and keep all my awards totals and country counts together.
I know DXLAB has the "auxiliary" section, with Station, Op, and Owner calls, but I wonder what the overall consequences are of using each of them ? And if I use one of them in DXLAB, what happens to the transfers I do to LOTW and EQSL ?
Is there a field I can use so my QSL card to someone reflects the special prefix ? Or is it better to just make a note in DXLAB, and manually send out the different QSL card to avoid a lot of headaches ?
+ The answer to the question "what should I do if I change my primary callsign?" is here:
+ Since you'll only be using your special prefix for a short time,
- skip step 1a
- in step 1b, only change the "Station callsign"
- in step 1.f.iii don't click on your special callsign's "Set Primary" button
- skip step 2
- skip step 3.b
- in step 4, change only the "Station callsign"
