Re: All KG4 calls assigned to Guantanamo on import

I had 4 KG4xxx calls and all were K in N1MM and imported as Guantanamo.  Good thing Clublog sent me an email response saying it had them as US.

That happened to me as well when I imported the N1MM+ ADIF file from the NAQP-SSB. I only had one:

but it was assigned to Guantanamo Bay.

DX Keeper question

Ron KU7Y
 

Hi Dave,

I have a file I use in Spot Collector to show me the Clubs a station is a
member of. I would like to show these memberships in DX Keeper. The files
are in the following format:

CALL,CLUB-Number (Example - VE5SDH,BUG-001

Is there any way this file could be used with DX Keeper to show the
Club-Number?

Thanks,

OK, back in my hole,

If you do not have any log backups, you can go to various online logs you are using (eQSL, LotW, QRZ, etc), export as ADIF log and then import into DXlabs log, allowing for some loss of data.  I note that my various online logs do not have the same number of entries, so maybe importing a variety and dupe checking can help recover most of them.

I have been very comfortable with Windows Defender for several years now, after quitting both McAfee and Norton in disgust.  Defender is particularly good at being non-destructive with unrecognized  downloads and giving you an easy option to say, "No, I know this one is all right."

All KG4 calls assigned to Guantanamo on import

ND9G Mike
 

When I import an ADIF file from my contest log, every station I work with a KG4 prefix is assigned to Guantanamo Bay, even when the call is a 2x3 call, which are US based calls.

I notice when I enter any of these calls into the capture window, or direct logging of a new QSO, it correctly identifies them as United States, not Guantanamo Bay.

Is there something I can do to have these identified correctly on import, so I don't have to go back and find them and fix them?

Re: Commander Spectrum Waterfall

Chris - N0CC
 

Dave,

 

Thanks for that info.  It makes perfect sense and it’s not something I noticed in the docs.  I’ll have to be careful when using Win4Icom.  My main purpose was to be able to run Commander, N1MM, and SKCCLogger at the ssame time since they (and others) need the COM port.  I just got lazy and the ability to have the simultaneous connections is nice and most of the time it does what I need.  I’ll just have to weigh the pros and cons and operate accordingly.  One minus I’ve noticed is that the Win4Icom response is a bit sluggish, something that doesn’t happen with Commander’s waterfall.

Note .. I said firewall ..  antivirus programs are a differetn issue.    I agree McAfee (and I also include Norton) are living on their past laurels.    I have been using AVG for years.  I have it set to notify me when it thinks it found something and >> I << then decide whether or not to delete it.  It also allows me to send the program to AVG to get it deep scanned, after which it reports back to me within 10 minutes on what its found.      It used to pause installation of programs, but not delete anything.
