Re: shortcuts, COM port questions ic-7300

There is no such scenario. Sorry for the confusion.
What I would like to achieve is to have instances of Commander, WinWarbler and WSJT-X to be running at the same time without adding one more physical connection to the rig.
Saying "working" I didn't mean operating. If I want to operate digital modes I have to turn off Commander, because WSJT-X and Commander use the same serial port.

+ If you have Commander controlling your transceiver, WSJT-X does not need a serial port to control your transceiver. On the Radio tab of the WSJT-X Settings window, set the "Rig" selector to "DXLab Suite Commander".

Changing antenna preset values

I must have missed a box to check or other omission but <CTRL> click does nothing when trying to change antenna preset values. I must have missed something. Thanks in advance for any help! John K8UMF

I think I added the new location and grid to LOTW, but I don't find a place to tell DXLabs to use the new location.
Can someone point me in the right direction

Have a similar question, is there a way to make Commander, WinWarbler and WSJT-X working at the same time without adding an extra serial connection for WSJT-X?

Re: Can two Spot Collectors connect simultaneously to same DXKeeper database?

Dave AA6YQ
 

+ AA6YQ comments below

That's really all I need for my current operating conditions, thx. Out of curiosity, are there any other clients that could operate this way (just the client + UDP)?
If WinWarbler did that I think all modes would be covered for the occasional non-FT8 QSO on the Radio PC.

+ At present, WinWarbler logs QSOs to DXKeeper via DDE, which requires that the two applications be running on the same computer. DXKeeper can accept "Log this QSO" directives via TCP, so it would be straight forward to extend WinWarbler to offer that option, but there would be some loss of functionality compare to the "both on the same computer" configuration:

- the Call textbox's caption would not indicate the number of previous QSOs with this callsign

- details of the most recent QSO with this station would not be displayed in the expanded QSO info panel

- the Call textbox's font and background colors would not be set to indicate "award need" and "participation in eQSL/LoTW"

+ Restoring these lost capabilities would require extending DXKeeper to send an "after the QSO was logged" message back to WinWarbler containing the above information, and extending WinWarbler to display it.

+ Who would use this capability if it were provided?

# more AA6YQ comments below

+ 100% of DXCC credits granted to LoTW confirmations will auto-link with no manual intervention.

132 of 133 did in this case. The one that didn't was an unusual case in that I had logged two QSOs with the station, same band and mode but 8 minutes apart. The report said DXKeeper couldn't tell which QSO to link.

# I'd forgotten about that scenario.

The QSOs were several years ago. I vaguely recall there was some unusual circumstance that caused me to work and log the station twice, but I cannot recall the details now.

There were a number of duplicate credits which needed no action but I did check to be sure the relevant QSOs were marked as verified in DXKeeper.

# I've never understood why DXCC Records contain duplicate entries.

I'm not sure why but assume it has something to do with LoTW oddities in selecting QSLs to include in a submission or possibly the fact that I had done a QSL card submission in 2016. I don't know whether LoTW is able to check my DXCC credits in order to be aware of those when choosing QSLs to submit.

# When assembling a DXCC submission, LoTW does check your DXCC record to avoid submitting an LoTW confirmation for a counter that's already received DXCC credit for a submitted QSL card.

# In an earlier post in this thread, you reported that DXKeeper's DXCC submission generator identified 128 QSOs confirmed via LoTW to submit for DXCC award credit. LoTW chose 133 QSOs to submit. The cost of LoTW's suboptimal submission was 5 unnecessary confirmations submitted; at $0.12 per confirmation, that's $0.60.

If you are using WSJT-X just click in the call area and hit F4 , this clears the call from WSJT-x and DX Labs will follow.

myqthid.

Make one for every place you have operated from. Do the same in
TQSL's "station locations". Then you can point DXLab's myqthid at the
matching TQSL station location.

Re: Can two Spot Collectors connect simultaneously to same DXKeeper database?

Hey Dave - that ability to connect WSJT-X (or JTDX) + Commander to a remote SpotCollector / DXKeeper [/DXview] is just what the Dr ordered!  Very slick!

That's really all I need for my current operating conditions, thx.  Out of curiosity, are there any other clients that could operate this way (just the client + UDP)?  
If WinWarbler did that I think all modes would be covered for the occasional non-FT8 QSO on the Radio PC.

Re: SpotCollector

eddy on5jk
 

Evidently, that will solve my problem Dave. I should have known!

But still, in the past the <Show Spots>-window stayed as a "part of.." SC-window.

I always was able to copy correct info from that "Show Spots" part right to the Notes box of an outgoing spot.

But i'll handle the (evident) solution you proposed.

Dave i noticed a small inconvenient in my SC.

When i activated "Show Spots of <Callsign> near <QRG> in SSB " the apropriate window apears on top, showing a bunch of former spots.

Usually in the past it was possible to write a reference or so in the "Notes" box of a possible outgoing spot, still showing the window <Show
Spots> thus able to copy an earlier given reference.

Now, when i have the <Show Spots...> visible, and i move the cursor and
click in the box for the "notes for outgoing spots"

the moment i click the window "Show Spots" dissapears. It is no longer
"on top", but hidden by the SC-window.

+ That's correct behavior, Eddy: when you click on a window, it becomes active, and obscures any parts of windows behind it that do not have their "always on top" properties enabled. The "Spots of ..." window has never had its "always on top" property enabled; DXLab applications only enable a window's "always on top" property if that window displays information that the user must immediately see.

So i am not able to copy data from it, in order to generate a new spot with correct references.

+ Position the "Spots of..." window so that it is not behind SpotCollector's Main window.
