Yes I do. But a number of entries have been entered before I realized I had an issue

+ Since you don't know what damage was done to your current log, I suggest that you

1. manually review and correct the QSOs in your current log made after the date of your last backup

2. export an ADIF file containing the corrected QSOs in your current log made after the date of your last backup

3. terminate DXKeeper

4. rename your current log file by appending _DAMAGED to its filename, e.g. VA3BXG_DAMAGED.mdb

5. make a copy of your last backup file, and name the copy VA3BXG.mdb

6. start DXKeeper

7. direct DXKeeper to open VA3BXG

8. direct DXKeeper to import the ADIF file you created in step 3 above

Re: DXKeeper, I do have a question

Dave AA6YQ
 

+ AA6YQ comments below

On the main log QSOs. I have question on 2 of the fields. One labeled RX Freq in the QSO block and the other labeled ADDR in the QSL block.

Where did the DXKeeper get the information from and how?

+ Since you were logging QSOs from JT-Alert, the information in both items came from JT-Alert.


I am asking because this morning I downloaded GridTracker and instructed GT to send the logging from JTDX to DXKeeper via GT. Everything seem to be okay except those two fields did not get fill properly (blank). For RX freq I will have to manually type it in and for ADDR, I will just hit EDIT and hit the CBA and save.

Prior I was using JTALERT sending logging information to DXKeeper, everything got filled properly.

With GT, those two were blank. I am wondering what did I miss. I setup the look up in GT so that was not it, I am thinking GT did not send those that were missing to DXKeeper. That is why I am curious on how / where DXKeeper got those information from.

+ I'm not aware of any interoperation between GridTracker and DXLab.

+ Note that DXLab can plot logged QSOs on DXView's native world map, Google Earth, and the DX Atlas world map; worked and confirmed grid squares can be plotted on the DX Atlas world map.

I have the same problem as Kent, if you use the space to change fields, the same thing happens, works fine (in my case Pathfinder to perform "lookup" operations) but you lose the focus.

+ I've sent Kent N6WT and Phil WR7T a new version of the Gateway that should prevent "focus theft". I just sent the new version to you as well; please let me know how it goes.

Re: Spots Clearing Issue when Running N1MM+

Dave AA6YQ
 

+ AA6YQ comments below

There are times when I want to toggle off spots on my SSDR displays coming from SC to see just spots from N1MM+'s Telnet function. To do so I switch off Commander>Config>Bandspread>Display calls on panadapter and I no longer get SC spots displayed as expected. However the spots coming from N1MM+ are very frequently cleared from the display. If I close Commander, this no longer happens. Is it possible that when SC updates and sends new spots to Commander for display, something like a "redraw" command is involved which includes a "clear spots" function that is still happening even though the spots themselves aren't being displayed ?

Obviously, I'd prefer to have Commander running to provide the radio interface for the rest of DXL so I don't want to just close it, right ?

+ Commander is not designed to share SmartSDR with another transceiver control application.

Given I do not know which qsl have been changed by my niece, I do not know from which date she 'submitted' from

I assume that it was qso dated after Jan 1st.

The ask is to create an sql (spell check change that to sal in previous email) to reset the indicator back to not submitted. ( I assume that is an 'N') from any qso that were logged Jan 1 2020 and afterwards

+ Do you have a log backup that you can restore?

Walt, the ARRL has daily bulletin service in RTTY from W1AW.  Check the ARRL web site for the schedule.  The Reverse Beacon Network also spots RTTY, but in my experience activity is pretty low outside contests

For spots, please use your favorite

While using the gateway, if I enter a callsign in N1MM and hit enter the info is populated in N1MM but then the focus goes to the gateway application. I have to click on the N1MM log window so I can hit enter to log the qso. Is there a way to keep the gateway from taking the focus?
+ The new "Operation log" added in  Gateway1.1.6 may be responsible for that; I will investigate...

Thank you for your quick response for the update to N1MM to DxKeeper Gateway. I'm trying it out now and really like the new log feature.
One issue though. I get a popup from DXkeeper "there is no log page display sort specified, sorting the log page display by QSO date". 
+ In the Sort panel in the lower-left corner of the "Log QSOs" tab on DXKeeper's Main window, select "UTC".

Dave-
Thank you for your quick response for the update to N1MM to DxKeeper Gateway. I'm trying it out now and really like the new log feature.
One issue though. I get a popup from DXkeeper "there is no log page display sort specified, sorting the log page display by QSO date". This popup puts a halt to the contacts transferring to DXkeeper and LOTW. If I press OK, I get one more contact transferred and then the message again. It doesn't appear to lose any, it just holds them. I had to press it twenty times this morning to clear the logjam.  I've looked at the menus and don't see one to indicate a default sort to prevent the popup from appearing. I've been seeing the issue lately and I think I've seen it before this latest revision. 
Thanks again for the quick revision to N1MM to Dxkeeper Gateway.
