Why does what not stop?

On your DXKeeper question, what did you do, what did you expect to happen, what actually happened?

Dual QTH , incremental log update and LOTW

ghassan chammas
 

Dear Dave,
Dear All,

My present query is about DXKeeper and the possibility of incremental updating // vs. LOTW.
Description:

I have 2 QTHs few miles away one from the other, A and B. I use in both QTHs the same callsign OD5YA, and they have the same grid square location. I have installed in each QTH the same rig: IC7300, R8 vertical, Dxlabsuite with a windows 7 professional PC. All systems work perfectly and correctly.

Suppose i have in QTH A dxkeeper 1500 qso's logged. I move for the weekend to QTHB (actually it happened this past weekend) and find out that i only have 1450 QSO's in my log because I did not update QTH B with the latest qso's. So, I work radio during the weekend and log some 210 NEW qso's from QTH B. Now I have in B 1450 + 210 =1660 qso's. I export to an ADIF (call it ADIF B)file and carry it back with me to QTH A today. If I import the ADIF B into location A (having 1500 qso's) I will be importing 1660 qso's, however the log should show  1500 + 210 = 1710 qso's because the 50 QSO i did at QTHA were not incrementally added to the imported file. In that case i will loose the 50 (incremental) QSO that were made at QTH A.

Questions:

1- Is there a way to have an incremental export like only exporting the 210 QSO's I did over the week end from QTH B ? i.e. can I export only those 210 qso's by filtering the date, so that, when weekend is over and i come back to QTH A I just increase the existing QSO's by the new 210 ones only?

2- If the above 1- is not possible, what do you suggest can be done? I know that the best way is to have QTH A exported to cloud BEFORE weekend, hence all 1500 qso's are in cloud, then import into QTH B before operating and then exporting QTH B..... it is tedious and requires remembering to do that before each and every weekend.

3- When I am uploading LOTW from QTH A (i  upload LOTW from A only) I am clicking on ADD REQUESTED, it shows 244 QSO's, when I upload, it says none uploaded because of 24 qso's  duplicate. How can I detect what are those duplicate and how can I remedy DXlab upload function? please note that I exported to ADIF and uploaded from TQSL and all went perfectly well and no error was mentioned. Only when I do it from DXlab and only recently (after this QTH A and B thing started I guess !!!!)

4- When I am uploading to eQSL, no duplicate error is announced and the upload happens with no problem. I am only getting a return page saying I have some SWL qsl pending. How can I answer the SWL's? Or is it just an information that eQSL is sending me that requires no further attention from my side?

all the best and thank you for the help. I truly appreciate it.

Re: change in eQSL.cc Inbox

Hi Dave,

does that mean we should be looking back through our logs to assign sub-modes correctly to achieve matches with the augmented eQSL records or will differences be offered as warnings like zone, grid etc are when syncing LotW records?

I guess the important issue is whether a sub-mode only mismatch still constitutes an eQSL match.

change in eQSL.cc Inbox

Dave AA6YQ
 

When you invoke DXKeeper’s “Sync eQSL.cc QSLs” function, the “Inbox” returned by eQSL now specifies both MODE and SUBMODE for each QSO whose MODE includes one or more SUBMODEs in the ADIF specification, whereas it previously only specified MODE. Thus if you submitted a QSO to eQSL.cc whose MODE is PSK31, the “Inbox” entry will now specify

 

PSKPSK31

 

Previous (a few days ago), the “Inbox” entry specified

 

PSK31

 

This change causes the DXKeeper’s “Sync eQSL.cc QSLs” function to incorrectly report “no QSO matching callsign, band, and mode“.

 

I have extended a new version of DXKeeper to handle this change, and sent it to several users to test. When this new version (or its descendant) is publicly released, you’ll be able to set the “Last eQSL Sync Date” back in time, and thus reprocess eQSL confirmations that were incorrectly rejected as a result of the Inbox change.

 

Plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.

 

       73,

Thanks, Dave.  All of your setting suggestions are what I have been using.  The serial cable is not the null modem type. There are no bent pins. 

The dual serial port is old.  The manufacturer was NetMos Technology.  In November 2012, NetMos was acquired by MosChip Semiconductor.  The driver number was NM9835S.  It could the 98 in the number is a reference to Windows 98? That old??  In February of this year, the company that is responsible and supplies drivers became ASIX Electronics.  Their driver number, MCS9835, is version 2.0.4.0  It is digitally signed by Microsoft Windows Compatibility Publisher.

Here's a thought.  This card was working in Windows 7.  I think it has not worked since I changed the motherboard and began using Windows 10, 64 bit.  Could it be that this old dual port card can no longer make it in the W10 environment?  This would fit your suspicion that I have a hardware problem and not a DXLab software issue.

 

>>>Since there are no reported but uncorrected defects in Commander, and since many ops successfully use Commander with Kenwood radios every day, it is unlikely that your situation is the result of a defect in Commander.

 

>>>If you have an oscilloscope, monitor the radio’s CAT port’s TX data pin to see if there’s any response to the CAT commands being sent by Commander.

Re: Kenwood TS-850 and Commander settings

Bob Main
 

May be that Windows 10 assigned a different COM port number than 2.  I have a USB to COM port adapter and when I installed a new driver the ports changed.  So might want to check that.

The IF-232C interface being used is the LCU3-K made by W1GEE.  Made for Kenwood radios.  Software must assert RTS for the TTL interface to receive power.  No other instructions.  Plug 'n play in terms of hardware.  It's the software settings that have to be right for Commander and the TS-850 to "talk".

Re: SC SQL Filter Error

Dave AA6YQ
 

Thanks for the errorlog.txt file, Mike. It shows that the SQL filter you
have specified on the Audio Alarm tab of SpotCollector's Configuration
window is invalid.

Here's an example:

(CALLSIGN='EA/DL2DXAP') and (FREQUENCY=18085) and (MODE='CW') and
(SPOTTIME=#2017-07-23 10:30:13#) and (k5p)

The last two words "and (k5p)" are what makes it invalid; I suggest that you
remove them.

73,

Dave, AA6YQ

Re: DXView failure to show stateside stations worked-except 6M phone.

Danny Douglas <n7dc@...>
 

>>>I assume that you have the correct log open in DXKeeper. Open DXKeeper's "Realtime Award Tracking" window, select the DXCC tab, and locate the row whose "Prefix" column contains K. Are the status boxes in this row correct? If not, click the Recompute button at the bottom of the Main window's "Check Progress" tab. Does the K row now show the correct status?


-----  I have only one log:   And it is open. 

----- Yes, the K line has a V in all the boxes entity through 2 meters. 

------Went ahead with the Recompute.  Then took another look at RAT and the entries remain all marked with a V in the K prefix

------Took another try at entering K calls in dxView. 

THAT DID THE TRICK.  ALL IS NOW WORKING.   Both, entering calls into DXView manually, and clicking on

SpotCollector  results properly marking the DXView boxes. 


I had done everything yesterday, except the recompute.    


Thanks for the help Dave.  I knew I hadnt lost logs, but it was perplexing.

woe is me. Last night, just before closing down, I noticed that DXView info screen suddenly is showing only ONE mode/band indicator of having any contacts in the log when I click on a SpotCollector call. . I have a W - in the SSB box, and every other box is blank on all modes and bands. I then clicked on some 50 meters DX calls, and have a normal panel with boxes filled with C and V indications, in all bands and mode. Its only the stateside , click in SPotCollector - or typing a call in the DXView box, that fails to fill the other boxes. They all come up with a W in the 6 M phone box.
