The ZD7DC spot is "Unconfirmed DX" for me, because I do not have ZD7
confirmed *on phone*. I do have it confirmed on several bands on CW
(thanks to ZD7XF)
It depends on one's *objectives*. If the user's objectives are DXCC
mixed and the awards tab objectives are configured correctly,
Unconfirmed DX is only unconfirmed entities, not unconfirmed band-
entities and not unconfirmed mode-entities. DXKeeper does not track
band-mode-entities (the W8AH Memorial DX Hog Championship).

If one wants "unconfirmed DX" to be announced and displayed the same
way as an all-time new one, simply set the color of the third item in
the "Font Colors" list the same as the fifth item and select "Needed
includes Unconfirmed as well as Unworked" in the "Audio Alarm Trigger"

You should create separate "my QTHs" for WPA and EPA, update your
logged QSOs, and only check the "WAS" box for the appropriate "my
QTH".

Re: spotcollector question

Your ZD7DC is correctly highlighted -- in green, as you have things configured -- to highlight it as a worked-but-unconfirmed
entity, entity-band, or entity-mode.

The statement "There is no color coding in SpotCollector for 'unconfirmed entity' " is incorrect.

What I suspect you mean to say is that SpotCollector does not provide the option of highlighting unconfirmed entities in a color
different than unconfirmed entity-bands and unconfirmed entity-modes.

"Unconfirmed DX" is actually "unconfirmed band or mode" (the captions really should be updated to reflect that detail). There is no

That's not correct, Iain. Worked-but-Unconfirmed entities, entity-bands, and entity-modes are all highlighted with the same

How does that make what I said incorrect? The entries are coloured the
way they are because of the band or mode being unconfirmed. The
confirmation status of the entity is not a factor.

Re: QRZ.COM subscription

DXView's QRZ button directs Pathfinder (if running) to initiate a lookup via QRZ.com. To gain access to all of the information,
specify your QRZ username and password on Pathfinder's Configuration window.

If you have a QRZ XML subscription, you should configure the Callbook tab of DXKeeper's Configuration window to access it, as it's
quite a bit faster than accessing QRZ.com via Pathfinder; there is no need to wait for all of those advertising graphics. See

Re: Marathon Progress Report Problem

I suggest setting the "WAZ VFY" item to 'I' in any QSO that is questionable for Marathon.

Just before you make your Marathon submission, filter the Log Page Display with

(YEAR(QSO_BEGIN)=2013) and (WAZVERIFIED='I')

and review the QSOs in the Log Page Display. For any QSO worth submitting to Marathon "just in case", clear its "WAZ VFY" item
before generating your Marathon submission.

I think what we need is a questionable or suspect category, perhaps by
preceding the callsign with a "?". What this would do is include it in
awards totals if it is the only one but still show it as needed and
exclude it if there is more than one. I just worked 3C1TR which is
suspect (perhaps a pirate). But would like to include it in the Marathon
report provided I don't work another one from Equatorial Guinea and
still show it as needed or perhaps in another color for questionable.

Subject: Re: [dxlab] Marathon Progress Report Problem

Pete's trying to secure his zone 36 credit without losing out on a
potential credit for TT. Is there a way to mark a QSO as invalid for
marathon zone credit, but still valid for entity credit?

+++ Yes, and I should have suggested this: set the QSO's "WAZ
Verified" item to 'I'. If a QSO is not valid for CQ WAZ, it won't be
valid for CQ Marathon -- and vice versa. The same is not necessarily
true for DXCC.

That still does not answer Pete's question. He knows TT8/US3EZ is not
valid for DXCC (no documentation received) at this time. However, since
he does not have any other TT8 this year, he *still* wants to submit it
for *country credit* in Marathon with the hope that documentation will
be received before entry processing is complete.

I'm in the same boat - frankly I'm not pleased that Marathon sponsors
waited until the second week in December to announce a "country" I
worked in *January* was not acceptable. With my antenna situation,
I don't beat my head in the pile-up working countries I have already
worked for Marathon - even on another band - unless I need them on
the second band for Challenge. Frankly, to wait 10+ months to before
invalidating a country is bad form (stinks). Announcements like that
should be made within two or three weeks to give *all* participants a
chance to work a replacement.

*** The only practical way to fine-tune a Marathon submission at that level is to use a spreadsheet application to directly
edit the
Submission DXKeeper generates.

*** It does seem unlikely that CQ would declare TT8/US3EZ "valid" at a point in time where ops who'd already submitted their
Score
Sheet could not include it.
There was a similar situation a year or two ago - I think it was with
9Q6AL. The recommendation at that time was to include the QSO if you
had no other that would qualify for the entity, but be prepared to
lose the point from your "claimed score". I think it'd be unwise to
omit a TT8/US3EZ QSO based on an assumption that it won't count,
because you might get an unpleasant surprise....

BTW, I'm in the same boat - I worked TT8/US3EZ early in the year, and
the entity disappeared from my radar at that point. I've been chasing
the TT8ES spots for the last few days, but have yet to hear a peep
from Elvira. I did work various other zone 36 stations before
TT8/US3EZ, though.

Re: spotcollector question

iain macdonnell - N6ML
 

"Unconfirmed DX" is actually "unconfirmed band or mode" (the captions
really should be updated to reflect that detail). There is no colour
for "unconfirmed entity".

For example, if I had VU7M confirmed on 17 CW and had worked (but not
confirmed) VU7KV on 15 SSB, a spot for VU7AG on 15 SSB would show in
the "unconfirmed DX" colour (purple? plum? magenta? in your case). If
I'd worked 5A1A in past years, but never got it confirmed, any spot
for 5A1AL on any band/mode would also show up in the "unconfirmed DX"
colour.

There is no way to distinguish (by colour) an unconfirmed entity from
an unconfirmed band or mode. This is not an issue for me any more - I
only have one unconfirmed entity now - but for someone earlier in
their "DX career", I (still) think it's a gap.....

I've suggested it in the past, but Dave was unwilling to add an
additional colour coding item, due to perceived complexity (for the
user) or/and lack of space in the UI.

don't have it confirmined by LotW, or card on any band. Another words, I
have 140 countried worked, and only 69 confirmined. I would now like to have
a spot displayed in red even though I already worked that country, but have
no confirmation. Thanks for any help with this....

I'm trying to find a conversation that took place earlier this year
between dave and me about changing spot collectors spot colors and how to
control the color help me work DXCC from my new station. Does anyone know
how to search through the archives in the new Yahoo? I can historically go
back, to say Jan 2013, but don't know how to then do a search for a
character string in that month.

WinWarbler: RTTY problems on a new system

W2IRT
 

Hi guys,
When setting up my new system everything seems find in DX Lab until I got to WinWarbler. Some initial problems with SSB macros were quickly overcome but RTTY has me dead in the water.

I can receive fine, on both channels; the problem is in transmitting. At least that's as far as I've gone--there may be more headaches lurking under the hood but this is where I'm stumped.

I can't send RTTY properly from WinWarbler. If I have WW closed and I send a test  FSK signal from MicroHam Router via my original MicroKeyer it's fine; the PTT keys, both LEDs on the MicroKeyer flash green and I can hear low and high tone. Using WinWarbler, with the correct FSK port selected, I generate PTT but only the low tone transmits, the PTT light flashes --but not the FSK light -- and the low tone stays on continuously for the duration of the macro. There is no diddle if I go into transmit manually either, just PTT+Low tone.

In WinWarbler Config, on the PTT tab, RTS is selected but greyed ut. I have tried RTS+DTR and XCVR Ctrl App but nothing changes.

I vaguely remember something about EXTFSK, but I'm not sure if that's applicable or if I even need MMTTY or its engine installed; am I confused or is that a relic of the old days, before I was using WinWarbler?

Any ideas on what I'm missing here?
Thanks!

WinWarbler question

Stephen Rabinowitz
 

WinWarbler is the latest addition to the DXLab suite in my shack.  I have all the others, including Commander, running well on my Window7 system and TS-990.  Commander tracks the VFO well, but WinWarbler doesn’t budge from one frequency.  My reading of the help files didn’t help.  Please advise.

Go into SC Config, Spot Database Display, and change the colors to whatever you wish!
