Dave, I don't know how you implemented your web server, but, if
possible, it'd be good if you could implement an HTTP redirect (301 or
302 response) to "/spots" when the root "/" is requested....

That presumes that "Spots" is the only web page the server will ever
generate, which is unlikely to remain true...

It's not hard to type

Well then you could remove the redirect when there's something better
at the root URL.

Alternatively, you could return a very simple HTML page with just a
link to "/spots". It'd be much more friendly than the obscure error
message.

Dave,

thanks mate and yes, wandering around the 'Outback' is just a great
lifestyle (for me at least) and having the benefit of a trauiler with a
home brew wind up mast, 4 element tri-bander and an assortment of wire
antennas is a whole lot of fun. (doing it tough eh?)

I did as you suggested but curious, the database still reflects vk4fd.mdb
and total qso's is shown as 17,000 odd. How do I distinguish which callsign
is accumulating data such as DXCC for example?

The DXCC rules say that all QSOs made from within the same DXCC entity
"count" towards your DXCC award progress. On the ARRL web site, you can
link
your VK1ZZ callsign to your VK4FD callsign. Thus its fine for your QSOs
made
as VK1ZZ and your QSOs made as VK4FD to be stored in the same DXKeeper log,
no matter what name you've given to this log file. When displaying DXCC
award progress, DXLab applications consider all QSOs in this log file as
counting for DXCC.

Am I able to to 'see' what contacts belong to VK1ZZ vs VK4FD?

If all of your VK1ZZ QSOs have their "station callsign" item set to
VK1ZZ, and if all of your VK4FD QSOs have their "station callsign" item set
to VK4FD, then you can filter the Log Page Display to show only your QSOs
made as VK1ZZ by using the SQL expression

STATION_CALLSIGN='VK1ZZ'

Similarly, filtering with the SQL expression
STATION_CALLSIGN='VK4FD'

will show your QSOs made as VK4FD. If you're going to be doing this
frequently, you can define a "permanent" SQL filter using the "Advanced
Sorts, Filters, and Modifiers" window's "SQL Query Filter" panel, that give
you buttons named VK4FD and VK1ZZ in the Filter panel at the bottom of the
Main window's "Log QSOs" tab; let me know if you need help setting this up.

Hi Dave:
It would be fantastic if the US Postal Service state list could be used to cover the known state and Canadian province contests that don't have Contest IDs. E.g. HI-QSO-PARTY,IN-QSO-PARTY, MI-QSO-PARTY, MN-QSO-PARTY, MS-QSO-PARTY, OR-QSO-PARTY, and others.
As for other contests, here is what I use internally:
9KCC - 9KCC Contest-CW/SSB, by the 9K Contest Club (Kuwait)
ALL-ASIAN-DX-CW All Asian DX Contest CW (JARL)
ALL-ASIAN-DX-SSB All Asian DX Contest Phone (JARL)
CQ-M CQ-M International DX Contest (Peace to the world) (Russia)
HOLYLAND Holyland Contest - Israel Amateur Radio Club
IARU-FIELD-DAY IARU-Region-1-Field Day (DARC)
MIDATLANTIC-QSO-PARTY Mid-Atlantic QSO Party
OMISS-QSO-PARTY Old Man International Sideband Society
SP-DX-RTTY SPDX RTTY Contest - Polish Radiovideography Club
US-COUNTIES-QSO Mobile Amateur Awards Club
VENEZ-IND-DAY Venezuelan Independence Day Contest-Radio Club Venezolano
WORKED-ALL-GERMANY Worked All Germany (DARC)
XE-INTL-RTTY Mexico RTTY International Contest
All this works great for sorting/searching thanks to your ongoing robust implementation of the latest ADIF standards.

How do I add a contest to the "Contest" tab on DXKeeper Config?
You can type any contest name you like into the "Contest ID" box on the
Contest tab of DXKeeper's Configuration window. However, if you want QSOs
exported to an ADIF file to be properly "understood" by another application,
you should select a contest name from among those appearing in the > "Contest ID" selector.

If there's a contest name not present in the "Contest ID" selector that
should be, please describe it, and I'll propose to the ADIF Development
community that it be included in the next version of ADIF; if this proposal
is approved, it will be included in the "Contest ID" selector in the next
version of DXKeeper released after ADIF approval.

Yes: specify the "Station Callsign" you'll be using in the "Station

all subsequent QSOs logged will be recorded with this Station Callsign.
When
you switch callsigns, update this setting.

If you are operating from multiple locations and want your location

location from which you operate and record a "my QTH ID" with each QSO.
This
is described in
