Re: Exporting to Logger 2

Ken Bandy, KJ9B
 

Ron, you can filter your log by the SQL expression of DXCCPrefix='K' .  Then, you can export the resulting display of your log as an ADIF file.  If you want Alaska and Hawaii also, then your SQL expression would be (DXCCPrefix='K') or (DXCCPrefix='KL7') or (DXCCPrefix='KH6')

I would like to export an ADIF file to a program that the county hunters use called Logger2, It keeps rejecting any DX contacts. I think because it is looking for a county. I need to set it up so that it only includes stateside contacts. I have read the help information in DXKeeper and it looks like this is not possible but if it is doable would appreciate help. Thanks.

Newbie Question from an old fart

backhoeken
 


Trying to clean my laptop up and deleted my old Icom 7600 from MyQTH when the K4 got going.
Had (verified) WAS for everything for 160 -12 and only missing HI on 10. 
Did not know the backup button was unchecked. 

Now when I check WAS progress hardly anything is present.   Need a little (maybe a lot) of guidance  

Thank you

Re: DXkeeper and LoTW submission

Fred Roberts
 

Hello group..
      In reference to my latest question, I found the answer.....to ignore the mode while compiling a  DXCC QSL cards or  LoTW submission, uncheck all the check boxes - on the Check Progress >  CONFIG (button) > Awards tab -  for the mode (Phone, CW, Digital, FT8, and QRP). I thought they all had to be checked to picked up by the  submission activity, but unchecking the boxes worked!!!!

Recently I received via mail few "digital QSO cards" in .jpg format.
Is there a way to insert them in DxKeeper (as I do for eQSLs) ?
Where and how?

+ There's no automation, but you could record the pathname of a stored "digital QSO card" in a QSO's File item, or in one of its user-defined items.

+ Yes. As described in

https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/DXCCAwardObjectives

+ In the DXCC Bands & Modes panel on the Awards tab of DXKeeper's Config window, check all the band boxes except 2M

+ If you're also pursuing mixed Honor Roll, you'd also check that panel's Mixed box.

Re: ICOM 7800 RS232 interface

Dave AA6YQ
 

+ AA6YQ comments below

I have been helping a fellow HAM to interface his ICOM 7800 with 3.1 firmware to Commander. He has an Acom 2000a amp which he also is connecting to his radio. When the Acom is connected to the remote port of the radio it follows the radio as it should. When the ICOM 7800 is connected to the radio via the RS232 port using a USB to DB9 DCE there is no response, the error log looks like it is just sitting waiting for a response.

+ As documented on page 12-22 on the IC-7800 manual, there's an "RS-232C Function" menu item that determines whether the backpanel RS-232C connector conveys CI-V data or decoded PSK/RTTY. To use the RS-232C connector for CAT control, this menu item should be set to "CI-V".

He connected the CT17 up and connected it to the radio and the USB to DB9 to the CT17 via a DB25 to DB9 adapter and the radio communicated with commander as expected but connecting the ACOM to the CT17 had no affect on the ACOM, as I expected it would, no ACOM control. The ACOM did sense the RF and follow the radio.

Is it possible to control the radio via the RS232 and and the ACOM via the remote jack? My friend lives several states away from me so it is not possible to work at the radio console. he only has wifi and no hub so ethernet is out..

+ Configuring the RS-232C connector to support CAT control should Commander to control the IC-7800 via the RS-232C port and CT17, and the amplifier to track the transceiver's frequency via the REMOTE port. Alternatively, you use Commander's Secondary CAT port to enable the amplifier to follow the Primary transceiver's frequency -- even if the primary transceiver isn't an Icom. See

+ Yes, you can rename Uncompacted_K2CIB.MDB to K2CIB.MDB but

1. you should investigate to determine why your K2CIB.MDB file dissappeared; check the Windows event logs

2. you should set up a backup mechanism that backs your K2CIB.MDB file daily; see

I have FT8 RBN spots in SpotCollector, and false decode spots are one of the reasons I asked Dave to add a "spot count" data column to the SpotCollector database. It sounds like these might be similar on the CW RBN. 

 

For most of my SQL filters in SpotCollector I can then set "and SpotCount > 1" and only see entries that have been spotted at least twice.

 

It isn't perfect, and there are times when you might want to see spots the first time they are spotted or even if they are spotted only once, but it has helped cut down on chasing ghosts.
