When I went thru this I felt it was misleading. I misread the wiki and thought that everything after the = was the password. Maybe you could make a mention that it is only the first number.

Thanks

I have just tried to follow the instructions in the above-titled Help page, but instead of yielding an account number, clicking on View Award Credit Matrix produces the matrix requested, but the URL reads "/lotw.arrl.org/lotwuser/awardaccount?awardaccountcmd=status&awg_id=DXCC&ac_acct=1&bingo=1#list"  .  Everything after the ampersand is different.

+ As indicated by

ac_acct=1

+ your DXCC account number is 1

Any ideas what's wrong? 

+ There is nothing wrong. The

bingo=1#list

+ is just another parameter the ARRL added to the URL.

Hi I am currently running DXLab suite with my Yeasu ftdx3000. I was wondering if there is a way to configure the commander to power the radio on and off. Thanks!

Download DXCC QSL List

Pete Smith
 

I downloaded my DXCC QSL report from LOTW.  Once I had done that, I attempted to run the Analyze routine, but then thought "dummy, you need to put that download where DXK can find it."  Rather than guess at where that might be, I used the download button on the DXCC Credits window to re-download the report.  After chugging for a while, it announced that I have zero DXCC credits.  I know that's not correct, because I have a 254k ADIF file in my Downloads folder.  What's the problem?  Did LOTW refuse to send my credits a second time?  If so, should I write them and ask that they reset my account?

Re: Download DXCC QSL List

Those are the instructions I was working from.

The reason for this exercise is that my LOTW account says I have 4 more DXCC credits than DXK does.  I would like to identify the discrepancies in a relatively efficient manner.

Re: UDP address on WSJT-X panel on the Configuration window's Spot Sources

When I click on the check box to "Enable" the UDP for WSJt-X I get this:
Cannot connect to WSJTX via UDP address 192.168.3.102 port 2237 because address is not available from local machine.

So I can go no further in testing.  I have opened port 2237 on the other PC, I can ping from either PC to the other, I even forwarded the port on the router which should not be necessary for the internal network.

So, I guess that ends that unless the Check Box let's me enable it.

+ That can be accomplished by depressing the CTRL key while clicking the "Sync LoTW QSLs" button. DXKeeper will direct LoTW to report all of your QSOs that are confirmed via LoTW, identifying those to which DXCC Credit has been granted. DXKeeper will then review that report, and update your logged QSOs to reflect LoTW confirmation and DXCC Credit granted to LoTW confirmations.

+ With a large number of QSOs confirmed in LoTW, the above procedure can take a long while. If the words "not responding" appear in the title bar of DXKeeper's Main window, ignore them; that's Windows speak for "waiting for LoTW to assemble and download the requested report".

+ Note that QSL card confirmations to which DXCC Credit has been granted will not be reported by LoTW.

Re: Download DXCC QSL List

* There's a faster way to accomplish your objective than what's described below:

1. follow the procedure given in

<https://groups.io/g/DXLab/message/184862>

2. in the "DXCC, Challenge, & Toplist" panel on the Main window's "Check Progress" tab, click the "Compare" button; this will display a report listing discrepancies between the DXCC Credit shown in your ARRL DXCC Record, and the DXCC Credit shown in DXKeeper.

3. for each QSO that the discrepancy report shows as having been granted DXCC Credit to an LoTW confirmation,

a. locate the QSO in the Log Page Display

b. right-click, and select "Update from LoTW" from the pop-up menu

Is that because another system/method is used to process cards?   I think doing it that way is a bit of a pain.  But, it is what it is I suppose.

Oh.  I misunderstood what you were saying.   That's the way I manage my DXCC credits, but the way I do it is manual/more difficult method.   Will try to not do that next time...

Hi Dave,

it appears that SpotCollector is binding to the local loopback network interface regardless of the address specified in the SpotCollector configuration. TBH I do not understand why an address needs to be specified at all, normally a server binds to the wildcard address 0.0.0.0 which means that it will traffic through any enabled network interface on the local machine. The only reason for binding to a specific network interface would be to restrict traffic from certain subnets.

OTOH optionally specifying a multicast group address to join is a desirable feature that SpotCollector should implement so that the full capabilities of the WSJT-X protocol can be realized.
