Turn off Auto-Upload to LoTW

Hasan Schiers N0AN
 

It's got to be staring me right in the face, but I'm missing it.

I found how to turn it off in the Capture Screen, but how do you turn it off for when WSJT-X logs a qso and DXKeeper accepts it.

I'm finding that LoTW is very unreliable. It is up and down several times per day (confirmed by others) and that slows down the software, so I want to turn off auto-upload and then at then of a session, I can simply go to the qsl tab and click on "Add Requested" and the Queue is loaded ready to go.

DXKeeper is taking too long to fill-in logbook data.

Is there free secondary callbook I can download on to my PC?

+ I'm not aware of any downloadable callbooks that are free.

+ Please do the following:

1. reboot Windows into "safe mode with networking"

2. start the Launcher

3. direct the Launcher to start DXKeeper

4. type my callsign into the Capture window, and click the Capture window's Lookup button; any change in the time required to populate the Capture window with my Callbook information?

Re: Commander 6700 signal level not displayed

+ AA6YQ comments below

I am new to DXLabs and am starting by getting Commander running before I pursue the rest of the package.

+ Welcome to DXLab, Keith!

I believe I followed the DXLabs instructions on Flexradio connections and have Commander displaying the frequency and mode of my
6700. Displayed frequency changes as I tune the 6700 and the 6700 follows frequency changes in Commander. I do not see signal
level in the window above frequency; it is greyed out. Obviously I have missed something.

+ No, that's the result of a defect. To correct it,

1. terminate Commander

2. download this file and save it to your Commander folder, replacing the existing Radios.txt file:

http://www.dxlabsuite.com/commander/Radios.txt

3. start Commander

+ Is the signal level now displayed above the VFO?

Re: Challenge

Your screen shot shows that both the "Award Progress" panel and the generated report are showing your 15 worked-but-unconfirmed Entities on 20m.

Changing the Band selector will enable you to produce similar reports for each band of interest.

What information are you seeking that DXKeeper is not providing?

The information in the "Award Progress" panel is present in your log's Progress table. If you want to explore this, make a copy of your log, and then direct Excel to open the copy's Progress table. Directly opening one of your log's tables with Excel can result in a log file that DXKeeper can no longer open.

Here are the screen shots. As you can see I do all the logging on windows and RDP to it from my Linux machine.

Is there a way to print/export that matrix to a text file?

Seems like "any" would have the same number or more DXCC entities.

+ As I've stated, setting the Band selector to "Any" reports the number of worked-but-unconfirmed Entities - on any band.

+ Setting the Band selector to "20m" reports the number of worked-but-unconfirmed 20m entity-bands.

+ It's not possible for the number of worked-but-unconfirmed entities on 20m to be less than the number of unworked Entities on any band.

"The Award Progress panel's Award Progress Filter panel contains a set of controls that let you filter the Progress Grid to show what's unworked, what's worked but not requested, what's requested but not confirmed, what's confirmed but not verified, and/or what's verified -- on any band, in any mode, or on specific band-mode combinations; setting the Band selector to ANY and the Mode selector to MIXED will display entity progress. You can also choose whether or not to include DXCC entities that are no longer current. Only Progress Grid entries that match the criteria set in these controls are visible; the number of matching entries is shown in the Award Progress panel's caption."

I know I've ask this question before and could of sworn I kept the messages with the SQL expression, BUT I can't find it. So, here goes again. When I do a DXCC report, it shows I have 807 worked towards Challenge, but only 735 confirmed. What is the SQL expression to find the DXCC entities that have been worked but aren't confirmed? Would like to try and work those unconfirmed ones again so hopefully I can get a bit closer to making Challenge.

+ The "DXCC Challenge" award is based on entity-bands. To see entity-bands that are worked but not confirmed, you must proceed one band at a time.

+ In the "Award Progress Filter" panel on the "Realtime Award Tracking" window's DXCC tab,

1. Uncheck all boxes except Worked.

2. Set the Mode Selector to MIXED.

3. Set the Band selector to 160m; all DXCC entities that are worked but not confirmed on 160m will be displayed; click the Summary button for a report.

Not in the shack now, but I seem to recall placing an “I” in one of the qsl fields marks the qso for invalid, and counted towards any awards....

+ Setting a QSO's "QSL Rcvd" item to 'I' makes it invalid for DXCC awards, but the QSO would remain valid for other awards. To also make the QSO invalid for WAZ awards, for example, you'd have to set its "WAZ Vfy" item to 'I'.
