Re: DX Commander with an IC-7300 and SDR Console

Joe Subich, W4TV
 

Since SDR Console V3 uses Omni-Rig for transceiver interfacing,
the information in
<https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/HDSDRCWSkimmerConfiguration>
should be directly applicable with SDR Console V3 replacing HDSDR.

Specific configuration of SDR Console V3 is left as an exercise
for the student. Omni-Rig is probably best configured to control
a Kenwood TS-2000, Commander's Secondary CAT serial set for Kenwood
CAT Protocol and "Follow & lead primary", and SDR Console configured
for the Kenwood transceiver. Icom protocol may work as well but
there is an added complexity of the correct CI-V address and the
Kenwood protocol is a bit more "full featured" in this application.

Hello to the group. I am presently using the latest version of DX Lab suite/WSJT/JTAlert.

I recently installed Grid Tracker so that it interfaces with WSJT-X and JTAlert. I have JT Alert logging set up to log to DX Keeper. All works fine with one exception.
The issue that I am experiencing is that after making a FT-8 contact, the QSO is successfully logged by Grid Tracker and DX Keeper.
However, in the case of DX Keeper after 30 seconds or so, I get an audible alert along with a pop up message indicating:

"DXKeeper CLub Log Upload

Upload QSO to CLub Log succeeded: Dupe"

OK

I need to click on the "OK" button to close the pop up.

I have reviewed the DX Keeper related documentation and cannot seem to find a way to prevent this message from popping up.
I'm not familiar with Grid Tracker, but I know that JTAlert does have
the capability to automatically upload QSOs to Club Log, as does
DXKeeper. If JTAlert uploads the QSO first, then DXKeeper tries to
upload the same QSO, it will be a dup.

In JTAlert, it's configured under Settings -> Web Services -> Online
Logbooks -> ClubLog.org

In DXKeeper, "Auto upload" is configured under QSL Config -> Club Log

I don't know if Grid Tracker has yet another equivalent.

Only one should be enabled.

+ It' not possible to provide step-by-step instructions for every available panadaptor. The article you cite above shows 6 different topologies for using Commander's Secondary CAT port to interoperate with panadaptors and SDRs. This article provides instructions for interoperating with a panadaptor that uses OmniRig for transceiver control:

https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/HDSDRCWSkimmerConfiguration

Combined with documentation provided by the panadaptor developers and a general understanding of CAT control, these have proven sufficient over the years. However, if you encounter and then resolve a roadblock not mentioned in these articles, please let me know and I will update them.

Re: Special Call Signs support request - W1EBM

Hello Dave & the group,
 
Trying to use Spot Collector's "Special Call Signs" in an annual event.    Hit a speed bump.
 
I downloaded the newest list of calls, from G4FOC and stored the file.
 
Using Spot Collector's CONFIG button, I selected the "Special Call Signs" tab.
 
Clicked LOAD, and transferred the new member file into "Special Call Signs."  I could see the 1,500 calls listed.  Good.
 
Entered some calls to "test" using DXcapture.
Clicked LOOKUP, and the info from the Special Call Signs file can be seen in DXkeeper for those special calls.  Good.
 
THE ISSUE:  All new Members can be seen in a scroll of "Special Call Signs" in Spot Collector.   Good.
                    But, using DXcapture's LOOKUP:  these new calls get NO response from DXCapture's LOOKUP.   Nothing.
 
                    What am I doing wrong ?
 
EXPANDED ISSUE:  Using DXcapture LOOKUP, I tested  randomly-selected calls (not limited to the newest calls).
                               Some are NOT shown in DXkeeper, even tho' they are visible in the Special Call Signs list. 
 
                               Corrective action, please.

+ As described in "Identifying and Logging QSOs with Club Members, Callsigns with Leaderboard Competitions, and other Special Callsigns"

https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/IdentifyLogClubMembers

+ If a callsign's Entry in the "Special Callsign List" includes one or more tags, and if the "Log Special Callsign Tags" option is enabled on the General tab of DXKeeper's Configuration window, then when you enter a special Callsign in the Capture window and strike the Enter or Tab key, the Capture window's Comments item will be populated with the tag(s).

for members to show DXCC totals etc.  my concern is if I receive a card today for a previous QSO and I mark it confirmed how do I get club log updated?
Is it done automatically or ?? So I guess I can update any QSO by relogging it then it will work? Only way? Correct?

+ It should never be necessary to "relog" a QSO. Here's how DXLab supports uploading to Club log:

+ You can configure DXLab to automatically upload each newly-logged QSO to Club Log. This sets that QSO's "Club Log" item to 'Y', meaning "uploaded to Club Log"

+ If you modify a logged QSO's Entity, Frequency, Band, Mode, Date, Time, Propagation Mode, "QSL Rcvd", or "LoTW QSL Rcvd" items, that QSO's "Club Log" item will be set to 'M' (meaning "modified since last uploaded to Club Log")

+ If you click the Upload button in the "Club Log" panel in the lower-left corner of the Main window's "Check Progress" tab, then all logged QSOs that have never been uploaded to Club Log ("Club Log" item is blank), and all QSOs that have been modified since last being uploaded to Club Log ("Club Log" item is 'M') will be uploaded to Club Log.

+ Additional information is available here:

https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxkeeper/Help/Progress.htm#Club%20Log

I just started using the club Log interface and would like to know what I have to do to confirm a QSO for a country  in Club Log after inputting it into the log as received. Does it do it automatically or is there something else I need to do to confirm the QSO for the country in Club Log

+ DXKeeper supports submitting QSOs to Club Log so that your QSO partners can check for the presence of their QSOs in your log, and so that your Club Log Account's analytics will include all of your QSOs.

+ A QSO marked confirmed via QSL card or LoTW in DXKeeper and submitted to Club Log will be considered "confirmed" by Club Log's analytics.

+ DXKeeper does not check for matches (confirmations) in Club Log. To my knowledge, Club Log confirmations do not count towards any awards; you can submit QSOs from Club Log to IOTA, after which they will be reviewed by IOTA personnel before IOTA credit is granted. You can also submit QSOs to IOTA directly from DXKeeper.
