RR Button

Mike Crownover
 

I just finished answering over 250 bureau cards. As I enter them I have to edit QSL rcvd to Y and QSL sent to R. It would be nice to be able to set the RR button to YR, or RY, Y for rcvd and R for requested. It would save a lot of time on bureau cards. Perhaps I am doing this the hard way, but I’m not aware of any automated approach that prevents me from having to edit both boxes.

 

Just a thought.

Cody,

See:
<http://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/SDRConsoleCWSkimmerConfiguration>

The "RX OUT" port on the FTdx101D/MP is functionally identical to the
RX ANT port on the "splitter" shown in the block diagram.

You can ignore the "SDR Console" block (or treat it as whatever control
software the RTL SDR uses) and connect the CW Skimmer "IF" connection to
your RTL SDR by whatever means you normally use. As Dave suggests,
contact VE3NEA if you have any questions about connecting CW Skimmer
to the RTL SDR.

Yes. Exactly. Although this year I decided just to try to triple-play 13 Colonies, not work them all everywhere.

I had another example of where I thought this would be useful, but it has escaped me at the moment.

+ Whether a Yaesu FT-101D provides an IF output that can drive an RTL SDR, and whether CW Skimmer can work with an RTL SDR are questions entirely unrelated to any DXLab application; thus you should not expect to find answer to these questions in DXLab documentation.

I was bored earlier, waiting for some needed 13 colonies spots to arrive, and I updated my tracking google sheet to generate the SpotCollector filter based on what remains needed - the goal for this is to "triple play" each station.

If anyone else might find that useful, the updated sheet is here: https://km8v.com/u/13colsblank

If you scroll down, you'll see a generated SQL filter for SpotCollector based on what is represented in the sheet above.

And if anyone would like to see my current sheet for 2022, it is here: https://km8v.com/u/13cols2022

Re: 13Colonies how to make SQL Spot Collector filter

I’ve used SpotCollector SQL filters for the 13 Colonies, and they’ve worked well.

 

This year I decided to use N1MM with a User-Defined Contest module for 13 Colonies.  I’m trying to work each of the stations on CW on each band, and N1MM with its Available window is working well for that.

 

https://n1mmwp.hamdocs.com/mmfiles/13colonies-zip/

 

I’ll import the N1MM log into DXKeeper afterwards as I do with all contest logs.

In the for what it's worth category, here is the SpotCollector filter I use, without using Special Callsigns or Tags. I'm trying to "triple-play" it, so work each one on digital, phone and CW. I remove the callsign from the appropriate line after I've worked it.

(CALLSIGN IN('K2A','K2B','K2C','K2D','K2E','K2F','K2G','K2H','K2I','K2J','K2K','K2L','K2M','WM3PEN','GB13COL','TM13COL') and <ORIGINFILTER> and MODE = 'CW' and <AGEFILTER> and SpotCount > 1) or (CALLSIGN IN('K2A','K2B','K2C','K2D','K2E','K2F','K2G','K2H','K2I','K2J','K2K','K2L','K2M','WM3PEN','GB13COL','TM13COL') and <ORIGINFILTER> and MODE = 'SSB' and <AGEFILTER>) or (CALLSIGN IN('K2A','K2B','K2C','K2D','K2E','K2F','K2G','K2H','K2I','K2J','K2K','K2L','K2M','WM3PEN','GB13COL','TM13COL') and <ORIGINFILTER> and MODE LIKE 'FT*' and <AGEFILTER> and SpotCount > 1)

tnx all...

ya, ive been doing it with a simple spreadsheet for years... CW/SSB only as i despise FTx and what its done to 'twitterize' things... 

another is to simply use dxsummit URL, check 'em off one at a time as worked... 

http://www.dxsummit.fi/#/?dx_calls=K2A,K2B,K2C,K2D,K2E,K2F,K2G,K2H,K2I,K2J,K2K,K2L,K2M,GB13COL,WM3PEN,TM13COL

but i thought i'd be able to readily just have it work like DXCC country does... once worked it automatically comes off the list since no longer "needed"... if i have to manually remove it, i may as well just keep either the spreadsheet/URL solution, as its about the same effort.

but thanks for suggestions.
