Re: Color code confusion and how to determine which are needed

+ AA6YQ comments below

In the settings for color it has many options and it says they cam be turned on or off. It also has f/g in each choice. What do
they mean? I am confused about decode coloring.

+ If you've configured DXLab and WSJT-X to interoperate directly, as described in

<https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/GettingStartedwithK1JTModesDirect>

+ Then you should follow the instructions in the "Installing and Configuring WSJT-X" section of that article, specifically step 7
which says

"In the Settings window's Colors tab's Decode Highlighting panel,
- Check the My Call in message box (at the top)
- Check the Transmitted message box (at the bottom)
- Uncheck all other boxes"

+ Assuming you haven't altered the default colors used in WSJT-X, that will highlight any report containing your callsign in red,
and any message you transmit in yellow.

+ All other coloring of callsigns decoded by WSJT-X will be colored by DXLab using the same coloring scheme used in the Spot
Database Display to identify callsigns with whom a confirmed QSO would advance your progress towards DXCC, IOTA, Leaderboard, VUCC,
WAS, WAZ, and WPX based on the award objectives specified on the Award tab of DXKeeper's Configuration window -- the same award
objectives that drive all functions of all DXLab applications using the same Realtime Award Tracking mechanism used by all DXLab
applications. Participation in LoTW and eQSL AG is also depicted using the same background color scheme that is used in DXLab
applications. See this screen shot:

<http://www.dxlabsuite.com/Wiki/Graphics/SpotCollector/WSJTX.jpg>

+ Say your only DXCC goal is "Mixed DXCC", you haven't yet worked India, and you log a CW QSO with India in DXKeeper; the font color
of the callsigns of any Indian stations shown in WSJT-X would immediately change from red (unworked) to blue (worked but not
confirmed) - without you having to initiate recomputation or export/import a file.

+ When configured to directly interoperate with DXLab, WSJT-X functions as if it were a member of the DXLab Suite - with one
exception: when you double-click the Spot Database Entry for a station operating in a K1JT mode like FT8 or FT4, you must click the
Tx1 button in WSJT-X before you can direct WSJT-X to begin transmitting on a clear frequency; hopefully this deficiency will be
corrected in a future version of WSJT-X.

Gil,

that is not correct. Both JTAlert and DX Lab Suite provide integrated DX chasing using WSJT-X by querying your DXKeeper log, they both have their pros and cons, you need to evaluate each one and decide which provides the best match for your needs. Your basic misunderstanding of how your log is queried by these applications shows that you have not done this.

You also refer to to the decode highlighting provided directly by WSJT-X in you OP above, that is another more basic option that uses your WSJT-X log file to determine what you have already worked. The WSJT-X highlighting is a stand alone solution and probably not the best option if you are using DX Lab Suite as your main station log.

Using JTALERT is not as functional as SC and you have to import your log from DXLABS to get all and it also leads to having logs in 2 places that may or may not be up to date. In my opinion using DXLAB to log and to be the only log is much safer. If I use the function to log to DXKEEPER I am sure I have all and I have all in one place.  Launcher also makes starting a session easier and you can have different setups by having different workspaces.

Re: Spot Collector Overrides Dialog blank - no editing possible

+ AA6YQ comments below
your tips indirectly brought me to the solution, because that button was missing. Actually, Lenovo and Win10 apply 125 % scaling against 13" displays. That caused the "display overrides" button to simply disappear on my laptop. There has been a hint by Lenovo when I initially set up that beast 2 years ago, that scaling might lead to unpredictable results.

Re: Finding Needed Countries to QSL

Dave AA6YQ
 

+ AA6YQ comments below

When I generate a DXCC Progress report, it shows that I have worked 2245 challenge entities and have 2028 confirmed entities.

+ There are 340 current DXCC entities. There are 62 deleted DXCC entities. Thus the maximum possible number of DXCC entities to confirm is 402.

+ The DXCC Challenge award counts entity-bands.


I need to find those 217 QSO's so I can attempt to confirm the contact.

I've been doing this manually by determining the needed prefix on the progress report, then using DXView to find the qso's.


Is there an easier way to do this?

+ Yes:

1. configured DXKeeper with your DXCC Award goals, as described step-by-step in

<https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/DXCCAwardObjectives>

2. On DXKeeper's Main window's QSL tab,

2a. set the "QSL Via" panel to "QSL cards" or "single/2-column/3-column labels", depending upon how you wish to generated outgoing QSL cards, as described in

<https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/HardcopyQSLing>

2b. click the "Add Needed" button; DXKeeper will populate the QSL Queue with every unconfirmed QSO whose confirmation would advance your DXCC award progress


Is there a report to generate the needed DXCC (or other award) call signs that is not dependent on the QSL sent/received fields?

+ A QSO's "QSL Rcvd" item indicates whether a confirmation has already been requested, or has already been received. It is not possible to accurately generate outgoing QSL cards/labels that request confirmation of "needed" QSOs without relying on each QSO's "QSL Rcvd" item. Since LoTW confirmations "count" for DXCC awards, the state of each QSO's "LoTW QSL Rcvd" item is also considered: for DXCC awards, the "Add Needed" function will not populate the QSL Queue with QSOs already confirmed via LoTW.

I have set all of this and selected to do real time tracking of only FT8. I wanted to just see spots come in and either on SC or on WSJTX page just click on one that I can instantly tell by color is a needed. I will do some more document reading which is what I should have dome anyway. I am sure this can be done. Thanks for your time.

That caused the ‚display overrides‘ button to simply disappear on my laptop. There has been a hint by Lenovo when I initially set up that beast 2 years ago, that scaling might lead to unpredictable results. But I did not think of dissapearing buttons.

Recently, after I imported a file to DXKeeper from N1MM+ and uploaded that and some other QSOs to LoTW I began to get an error
message from TQSL which reads " Invalid contact - QSO does not specify a callsign on line 8". I check through my log and all
appears ok. I click ck "Ignore" on the TQSL error message and everything uploads normally. My question is where the H is "line 8"?


+ When you direct DXKeeper to submit QSOs to LoTW, it assembles an ADIF file containing one record for each QSO to be submitted.
This file is named

LotWUpload.ADI

+ and lives in your DXKeeper folder. "line 8" refers to the 8th line of this file.

+ Any logged QSO missing a callsign would be considered Broken by DXKeeper. DXKeeper won't log a QSO without a callsign, but it will
import a QSO without a callsign (or with any number of other serious errors). Such errors should have been reported when you
directed DXKeeper to import the file; were they?

+ If you still have the ADIF file you imported from N1MM+, please attach it to an email message, and send the message to me via

Now is there a quick way to switch between two home sites, I have a remote setup that I log into that I want the MyQTh to be Westminster: when I'm using the remote, or do I just change the root myQTH ID in the "Log Settings" panel?

+ If you want to rapidly switch among already-defined "myQTHs", keep the "Include radio name in myQTH ID" option disabled (Configuration window, Log tab, "Log Settings" panel)

+ Starting from DXKeeper's Main window , to select a different "default myQTH ID",

1. click the Config button; the Configuration window's Log tab will be displayed

2. in the "Log Settings" panel, open the "default myQTH ID" selector and click on the desired Location:Radio combination

Error Message when uploading to LoTW

Recently, after I imported a file to DXKeeper from N1MM+ and uploaded that and some other QSOs to LoTW I began to get an error message from TQSL which reads " Invalid contact - QSO does not specify a callsign on line 8". I check through my log and all appears ok. I click ck "Ignore" on the TQSL error message and everything uploads normally. My question is where the H is "line 8"? This may be more of a question for the LoTW group but since many of us us DXLabs and LoTW use both I thought I might start hear. Anyone have an idea of how I fix this?
