Date   

DXV Timezone?

Kent N6WT
 

I am looking at DXView and have clicked on a spot for AG7GP. She is in the Pacific time zone, just as I am.  The time zone shown in the DXView window is UTC-8, so the time is 1 hour less than the correct time. I assume this does not take into account for daylight savings. Is there a way to change it for this, either automatically or manually?

I may have asked this before. Sorry in advance!

Thanks

Yes, it looks like sometime between 1450 and 1500z that someone
in ARRL's IT department fixed the router/DNS issue. The LotW
Queue status update at 1500z (nominal) ran as scheduled. It
appears the system is again processing uploads and communication
has been restored among ARRL.org, p1k.arrl.org and lotW.arrl.org
although the number of QSO records is incrementing slowly.

Not really. LotW is showing an error message that means ARRL still have in an
in-house networking/routing issue.

The number of QSOs/QSLs is not incrementing, the queue status is not
updating, any user inquiry is getting an empty response because the web
server apparently can not communicate with the database server (which may
still be down).

NEW version 4.0.1 program AWARD_SECRETARY cooperatin with CLUBLOG

Jerzy Smietanski
 

Hello all !

I would like to inform that I project a new version

AWARD_SECRETARY.EXE  version 4.0.1 at  30.06.2022 year

The following changes have been made to this release:

  • The program is used to create applications - for awards in a  automatic and cost-optimal manner
  • It's been two years since the previous version 3.0.3 was developed and I made a lot of changes
  • First 4of all, the program is much less restrictive when it comes to licensing conditions and practically the full version is available for every ham radio without paying any fees -completely free. You just need to write me to e-mail sp9auv@... and provide the main sign of the station for which you have obtained or intend to obtain the ARRLcertificate. You will receive a license file back, which you just copy to the main AWARD_SECRETARY directory .The DEMO version after the 1st installation includes only the basic most popular awards

  • In fact, you can install and run the program without an Internet connection - although then you will be deprived of the valuable property of checking data on CLUBLOG
  • At the moment, the program can do calculations for  30 awards, including 18 DXCC awards and 12 WAZ and WAC awards or others, and for 8 special inquiries, eg - tell me how long I wait for confirmation with QSL cards.
  • The issue of duplicate QSOs has been cleared. The problem is that the emission symbol is not treated unequivocally and the same over time by logging programs. Ie. Logger 32 used to use PSK31 and PSK63 symbols as emission symbols.The program AWARD_SECRETARY as a symbol that uniquely identifies the QSO also uses the emission symbol (MODE). . Now PSK31 and PSK63 emission are converted to PSK when reading ADIF data and in various other situations. .  For DXCC awards, they will be combined into a DIGITAL mode.

  • Introduced and improved the method of numbering QSL cards with a sticker on the card in the logger when selecting  the QSL card has been received, which greatly speeds up the process of looking for cards when submitting a award. Currently, you use the DXCC country sort method for QSL numbering.
  • The synchronization of QSOs data from the logger adif with data entered intothe MYSQL table was also taken care of - because it was found that someloggers increase the TIME_ON parameter by 1 sec after some time,which means that the program may malfunction in the future and give a false result.TIME_ON is a critical data because it is included in the so-called QSO index.
  • Currently, it is possible to submit multiple awards in one application. This is done in the so-called In the 1st application form, the method of uploading ON-LINEto the ARRL website of the appropriately produced application file.The application file may contain any number of awards. It is also possible to include supplements in such application - endorsement
  • A new browser program has been developed to work with CLUBLOG.Browser_chrome3.exe. .The previous program, Browser_chrome.exe, stopped working in the new Windows environment.
  • The program can work with CLUBLOG. Then the comparison of the data downloaded from  the ADIF file from the logger and the data calculated on the CLUBLOG website takes place. After the data comparison, the data can be improved to the MYSQL DIFFERENCE_LOGGER_CLUBLOG table and to  QSO_AWARDS
  • It is possible to choose all QSOs automatically or manually one QSO.

                        Program can download from page

And at 12:40Z

The queue status has not updated since 02:58z and the status
page: <https://status.lotw.arrl.org/> shows "All Systems DOWN".

Nothing from the "Director of Operations" or any other HQ
representative in the LotW list either. Typical Newington

Re: MyQTH??

Is there any easy way to set "MyQTH" when I start up DXLabs, or switch it?

I operate several QTH's, some remote, and would like to see this on the Main DXKeeper "Log QSOs" tab with a way to switch it before I start logging qso's.

+ Like the other settings in the "Log Settings" panel on the Configuration window's Log tab, your "default myQTH ID" is stored in your log file, not in the Windows Registry; thus it cannot be associated with a Workspace.

+ From the Main window's "Lot QSOs" tab, one click of the Config button makes the "default myQTH ID" selector accessible by displaying the Configuration window's Log tab.
