Hi Dave, I followed your below instructions and conditions remain the same.
"Marzoneprog," and "Needed" columns of SC seem "unable" to track Marathon
Zones.
Marcntryprog, and Needed columns of SC, track needed countries very well for
Marathon.
Could there be a problem within the software and zone tracking.

Yes, a regression (defect) was introduced in SpotCollector 5.8.1 that
causes the Marathon Zone Progress, Marathon Zone Band Progress, and Marathon
Zone Mode Progress to be incorrectly recorded in each Spot Database Entry.
The regression is corrected in the forthcoming SpotCollector 5.8.2.

Hi Dave,
I have gone over your instructions and found that my set up is
identical to what your instructions directed me to do. I have looked at
each line item three times.

According to the SC help files, its my understanding that with the column,
marcntryprog (marathon country progress) and set up properly it should tell
you if you need the entity that has just been spotted. That works great, no

problems.

Now here is where the problem appears. In the next column marzoneprog
(marathon zone progress) appears and this is supposed to track the needed
zones for the Marathon award as Zones, and CQ Countries have to be tracked
during the entire year for this award. Well all that appears in this column
for every spot is "?" . That tells me SC is unable to determine which zone
the spotted station is.

I also have been looking at the "Needed" column to see how it was tracking.

I installed spot collector 5.8.1 and have got the telnet site working but it will not display spots on spot collector. I see spots in the telnet window. Error log below. I have commander, dxkeeper, winwarbler and spot collector installed, do I have to add more for it to work?

Re: How to print a single QSL Card ? I can do that!

Kenneth Johansson <kenjohan55@...>
 

Rich.

I own a digital camera and I have, as late as today, taken a couple of pictures with the highest quality possible as an experiment. The camera menue says the file extension is "raw", which sounds familiar. Unfortunately the files appear as hrw or something, definitely not raw, in my computer and not one of several imaging software I have, can open these files. But, again, it is of no importance any more and I have restored the camera settings to what I usually have and I do not intent to do any further experiments.

I knew that Kodak, despite Paul Simon's demand: "Please don't take my Kodachrome away", has done just that. That they've discontinued Kodacolor as well, is news to me, but quite understandable.I was in the photo-business as a young man in the yearly sixties and Kodachrome and Kodacolor were the only useable color films at that time. Other brands fell short of Kodak, by far.

Most digital cameras (even inexpensive ones) provide a means to set the
resolution. As long as your camera is capable of producing a reasonably
high quality 3 megapixel or greater image and you don't set the
resolution to tight to save memory it will produce a very lightly
compressed .jpg image that produces excellent quality. If it didn't,
digital photo technology would not be replacing film as it most
certainly is. Are you aware that Kodak no longer manufactures Kodacolor
film because it is no longer profitable?

One of the drawbacks of Windows Paint is that it doesn't provide a way
to crop a picture to specific dimensions I.E.: 5.5 x 3.5 inches at a
specific resolution while maintaining the original aspect ratio.
Distorting the aspect ratio is like standing in front of one of those
trick mirrors that makes everyone look tall and fat or short and skinny.
This is where some good imaging software such as Adobe Photoshop is real
advantage. Unfortunately, Photoshop isn't cheap and learning to use it
takes time and effort.

If you converted a .jpg to .bmp and are not able to open it with
QSL-config then something went wrong in the process and your .bmp image
is corrupt. Try again with a different image.

Yes it has come up before and it's not a problem. .jpg files can easily
be converted to .bmp format using almost any photo processing software
or even Windows Paint which is an integral part of all versions of
Windows. Usually this is done by opening the .jpg file and using
File>Save As... to save the image in .bmp format.

The upshot is that you and I could have fun making contacts off of

Probably cut'n pasted more than needed here but need both.

Al, I believe your query didn't work because not knowing any better I included the asterisk and "

SELECT * FROM QSOs
WHERE

"
Taking these out produces a result. This search takes a while in my log. It includes QSOs with QSL received = S and V, more than desired.

Ian, while your query returned a group of QSOs it is not the same country list as the one produced by Dave's method using his RAT setup. Dave's returned countries not found in a list produced by your query. Later I will sort the differences and post.

Its all good! I'm learning.

I'm at work and don't have access to any data or a running copy of DXlabs, but the SQL to do this with the QSOs table only is pretty simple:

SELECT * FROM QSOs
WHERE BAND="80M"
AND DXCCID NOT IN
(SELECT DXCCID FROM QSOs WHERE
(QSL_Rcvd="Y" OR APP_DXKeeper_LoTW_QSL_RCVD="Y")

This should return all QSO's on 80M for DXCC entoties that have not been confirmed on 80M by either cards or LoTW.

It's a bit of a sledge-hammer approach, but it does seem to work (I'm
a little surprised that you can get away with it!).

BTW, to consider QSLs that have been submitted or verified, it should really be:

BAND='80M' AND DXCCID NOT IN (SELECT DXCCID FROM QSOs WHERE (QSL_Rcvd
in ('Y','S','V') or APP_DXKeeper_LoTW_QSL_RCVD in ('Y','S','V')) and
Band = '80M')

A possible refinement to exclude QSOs for which a card has alredy been sent:

BAND='80M' and QSL_Rcvd<> 'R' and DXCCID not in (SELECT DXCCID FROM
QSOs WHERE (QSL_Rcvd in ('Y','S','V') or APP_DXKeeper_LoTW_QSL_RCVD in
('Y','S','V')) and Band = '80M')

Re: Tracking Marathon with Spot Collector

Chuck, WS1L
 

Sorry, Pete, my bad. Try DXKeeper, Config, Awards. I have Marathon
sub-panel all blank except 'Include QSOs with no prop mode' and 'Realtime
Award Progress.' I also have max power filled out.

Having done that, on SC I have checked the box 'Mrthn' to the left of the
filter buttons. The result for me is that a new Marathon spot is colored
red, just like an all-time new one. Right-clicking the spot and choosing
award tracking shows what it is needed for.

That is what I have set up... I pretty much know which are my all-time new
ones so anything red gets my attention and if it isn't a known new DXCC then
I know its a new Marathon for 2011.

Another thing that has to do with printing out paper-QSLs: The background must be in bmp-format. I certainly don't have a lot of bmp-pictures on my computer but thousands of jpg-pictures. I guess that goes for most of us. Is there a way to use jpg-files as QSL-backgrounds?
I bet this question has popped up b4.

Hello everyone -

In DX Keeper,
in the QSL Tab,
after clicking on the QSL Configuration button,
in the Printer Tab,
in the Media for QSL Cards section,
in the SIZE pull down menu,
there is a selection called "User Defined":

Once I have selected "User Defined" how do (or where do) I go about
actually defining it (specifying the definition's parameters) ?

That option is provided by your printer manufacturer. If it's not
described in your printer's documentation, you could try calling the
manufacturer's customer support department.

On the "QSL Configuration" window's "QSL Labels" tab, try reducing
the "QSL Information" panel's Font Size to 7.
Better. Thank You.

Re: DK QSL Print center feed and slashed-zero ?

Hi Dave,

When i put my card in the center feeder and i print , left or right, nothings printed on the card.

If i feed the card left or right without using the gliders , the printing goes completely wrong and i get allways paperjam.

Dave,

I hope you add centerfeed also.
My printer only accept centerfeeds..

What happens when you try the left-feed and right-feed options?

Dave -

OK, I will call Samsung tomorrow and let you know what I find out.

By brute force experimentation I have discovered that if I tell DK to
print a single card using QSL Media of "Envelope Monarch 3 7/8 X 7 1/2"
I can get the center-feed printer to print on 8 1/2 X 11 inch paper with
the correct vertical spacing for the printed card-image. Looking at
the sheet of paper that comes out of the printer doing this (looking at
the sheet of paper in Landscape orientation) the printed card-image
would then only need to be shifted about 3 1/2 inches, in the extreme
left direction, on the "page" so that it would print on the edge of the
paper and in the right place if the sheet of paper paper were a card
instead.. I think I then could insert an actual pre-cut QSL card
instead of the 8 1/2 X 11 inch sheet of paper and it would print on the
QSL card in the right place.
