It would not be that hard to print your own QSL as if it had  been received in the mail. Eventually you would probably be caught, especially if you are dong many.

No, it is not enabled on the "Rotator Control" tab of DXView's Configuration window.

In fact, I worked more QSOs, after quitting each of the following in turn:

DXView
PropView
SpotCollector

which left only Commander, DXKeeper, and Launcher running, and the behavior persists.

+ Thanks. Are you logging QSOs via DXKeeper's Capture window, the "Log QSOs" tab of DXKeeper's Main window, WinWarbler, or another application?

+ On the Defaults tab of DXKeeper's Configuration window, to what is the "Antenna Path" selector set?

They are not.

In simple terms, in order to be valid (for ARRL awards), a computer
generated QSL requires an original signature or separately applied
"QSL Manager's stamp". Without the signature or stamp a computer
generated card is assumed to be e-mail/fax as there is no way to
authenticate it.

Re: Digital QSL Web Creator

 

Hello,

 
I have a few QSL cards sent to me that are nothing more than printed paper QSLs.
 
Now, they are not P5 or BV9P etc...but they are on regular paper, and have been accepted by 

ARRL for DXCC credits. That was back in the 80s/90s. Contact the ARRL DXCC desk and they will more than happy to answer that question from the horses mouth.

When DXKeeper 16.4.0 was released on 14 Dec 21, Azimuth values started showing up in every logged QSO.

This is undesired behavior because I use wire antennas, and I manually enter az/el data only with EME in order to track noise.

Compacting Spot Database

eddy on5jk
 

Dave,

Recently SC started "Compacting Spot Database" when we prune manualy the Spot Database.

I have the "Prune hourly" box not checqued.

I have set "prune entries older than" to 0,05 (aprox 1 hour) . So i can prune whenever i want to, not automaticaly.

Now when pruning, often "Compacting Spot Database" starts. Thus loosing a lot of time before i can see Spots again.

Can't you please provide a "switch", so we can select "compacting or not" when pruning manualy?

The compacting Spot Database is very anoying during a contest or any other special Event. (Like the ON75... now)

I know there has been similar questions before.

Thanks and best wishes to you and your family.

Yeah, I think "dark mode" should be the job of the OS and/or the brightness control. (Android and iPhones both handle dark-mode at the OS level.)

Found this: https://www.businessinsider.com.au/how-to-turn-on-dark-mode-on-windows-2020-7

+ The directions provided in that article are ineffective with DXLab applications, which were developed years before Microsoft provided the mechanisms to support "application dark mode".
