I thought I read some posts that lead me to
believe if I went to the DXCC button on DXview I
could change the entry for Swaziland to
Eswatini. I tried that today and local spots
generated by me are still coming up as Swaziland.
I did recomputes for DXK and Spot
Collector neither made any difference. Is there
something else I should have done?

+ Whether you're accepting a new DXCC database
from Joe W4TV or modifying your copy, you must
terminate and restart DXKeeper and
SpotCollector.

I am having trouble connecting with clusters using VE7CC's CC Cluster software.

+ VE7CC's CC Cluster software is not supported. I'm not aware of any functionality provided by this software that isn't provided by SpotCollector.

Note: editing the DXCC Database will not change what is announced by "Joe DX". Until a new 3DA0.wav file is made available, SpotCollector will still announce "Swaziland."

+ Any user can record a new 3DA0.wav file that announces "Eswatini". Or I can record such a file and make it available.

At the present time, I am targeting a new DXCC database
when the British government make official the change in
VP8-G, VP8-H, VP8-O, VP8-S and VP8-A to VP0 prefixes.
That is, unless there is an unexpected change elsewhere
that impacts callsign prefixes or creates new/deletes an
entity.

Dave, Should we type in Upper Case or Lower Case in emails?
When typesetting should we always use the Upper cabinet or Lower cabinet.
Should all emails be in Upper Case?

+ Emails and posts to this group should be written in "mixed case", e.g. capitalizing the first word of each sentence, proper nouns, and acronyms.

+ "All upper case" is interpreted by many readers as "shouting", and thus should be avoided unless absolutely necessary.

Re: Icom 7300 Command to Expand Display

If it's like the IC-705, and it probably is, it's in the 1A-05 area,
as these things usually are, but it's also not in the regular manuals.
Search the Icom site for a separate CI-V PDF.

Spotcollector compatability with VE7CC Cluster

Brian Bowers G0VAX
 

Hi All,
I am having trouble connecting with clusters using VE7CC's CC Cluster software.

When I go to log on, it will not do it automatically.

I have to put in my call, then press enter, then, if I use a password, I again have type in the password and press enter..

Is there a work around so it connects just like DXSpider clusters?

If not,, Can I suggest perhaps a return option after sending each piece of info is added?

Best Wishes

Brian G0VAX
