Re: DXKeeper 1.1.6 is available


Dave, AA6YQ <dhb@...>
 

The progress problem is a defect that was easily fixed; I'll send you a
progress report file so youc an verify that this was the only problem.

I noticed a lot of "truncated name" messages. With the "Import from Logger"
box checked, I look for names and qths being concatenated in the name field,
separated by a colon; its easy to split these and place the name and QTH in
their proper fields. But there are lots of situations where the name field
contains contest info, or names and QTHs without a separating colon. In
DXView117, I added code to detect this condition and put the contents of the
name field into the comment field (where there is plenty of room); let me
know if you think this is a bad idea, or have a better suggestion.

I've imported your .ADI files several times without a crash, but clearly
there's a latent defect. I'll take a look at QSO# 3757 to see if it contains
anything unusual, and will add instrumentation to 117 so that we can track
it down.

Has CI-V Commander created any error log files for you when you rapidly QSY
your TenTec?

73,

Dave,

The import went fine, except for the program error that occurs at
QSO #3757. I found that all I have to do to recover from that is
to close and reopen DXKeeper, then start the import again. The
first 3757 are then duplicates and after passing those it
completes normally. Performance is much improved. I'll send you
the entire ADIF file (privately) so you can see that too.
