Re: Callsign lookup

Dave, AA6YQ <dhb@...>

We can certainly change "?" from "check for previous QSOs" to "check for
previous QSOs and lookup DXInfo but don't set the start time". Seems a
little complicated to remember.

Or we could modify the "lookup" button to not set the start time, perhaps
making start time the same as end time for all QSOs logged throught the
capture window. Or should I add a "start QSO" button to record the start

Which would be more intuitive and/or convenient?

Is there a better idea?

Entering a callsign in DXKeeper's capture window and clicking on
the question mark next to it causes the callsign to be placed into
the filter window and looked up. If the callsign exists in the
log, the information is also transferred to DXView which then
provides beam heading and progress information. However, if the
callsign does not exist in the log, nothing goes to DXView. I
could click "lookup" to get the call into DXView but that does
other things including noting the start time and I haven't started
a QSO yet.
