Re: Limiting submission to ones from single entity

I've generated submissions many times before for cards but I've always been a single entity operator. I'm generating a submission from someone who has operated also from Curacao and an entry is showing for that entity as well. He has no need or interest to submit a card for credit from that location.

How do I tell the Submission process to only consider cards that would advance Challenge from the current USA location?

+ Your friend's log should not contain any QSOs made from Curacao; such QSOs should be maintained in a separate Curacao-only log.

+ The fact that your friend has operated from Curacao doesn't invalidate Curacao-bands as points in the DXCC Challenge, thus there is no reason to not include them in a DXCC submission, as DXKeeper's DXCC Submission Generator will automatically do. If your friend really doesn't want to include any QSOs with stations in Curacao in his DXCC applications, set the "QSL Rcvd" item of each such QSO to 'I', meaning "not valid for DXCC"; DXKeeper's DXCC Submission Generator will then ignore them.

Re: TQSL in Admin Mode After Updating via DXKeeper?

Thanks, Hasan. This group does not convey screenshots, as they would count against the storage limits associated with a free Groups.io account, and I want to maximize the availability of storage for information maintained in the Groups' Files area.

Base on the information you've provided below, the question is whether the Launcher is being started with Admin privileges. Since you're running on Windows 10,

1. right-click the Launcher's desktop icon, and select Properties from the pop-up menu

2. in the Properties window that appears, select the Shortcut tab

3. on Properties window's Shortcut tab, click the Advanced... button in the lower-right corner

4. in the "Advanced Properties" window, is the "Run as Administrator" box checked? If so, then

4a. uncheck the "Run as Administrator" box and click the "Advanced Properties" window's OK button

4b. click the Properties window's OK button

4c. terminate all DXLab applications

4d. start the Launcher via its desktop icon

4e. direct the Launcher to start DXKeeper

Does TQSL complain about being started with Administrative privileges?

I installed from Launcher, using the defaults as presented.
C:\DXLab\
...all installed under that directory as expected.
At no point did I knowingly install any of DXLabs stuff as Admin. I was aware how undesirable it was. I can't imagine the Launcher/Configuration would install as Admin without some sort of warning and certainly not on its own....so I must have done something stupid.


I started with the Launcher and its configuration setup.

I installed from it, DXK first, then DX Commander, other stuff later, all from within the launcher.

I then RUN all programs via the Launcher.

I Terminated all DXL programs using the launcher. Now I'm going to start them with "Start"

CMD went from Red to Yellow (assuming due to in minimized state.)

dsk is green and on screen.

dvc went from Red to Yellow (minimized)

pv is yellow (minimized); sc is yellow (minimized)

...ok, since I had the program create icons during install, I just went to the Launcher and looked at properties. I have attached a screen capture of it:

I won't send more info, I await your instructions, and thanks so much for the help. 73, N0AN Hasan

Amazing Replacement

Hasan Schiers N0AN
 

Dave,
I just wanted to quickly share with you my early experience with DXLabSuite

I tried to install it about 3 months ago and got no where. I just could not get a grip on things.

Yesterday I proceeded to download and install and it went pretty much painlessly. I have no idea why. I must have followed the directions by accident. ☺

Prior to your software, I had been using:

Logic9, powerful, confusing and clunky (slow response even on a fast machine) For Logging, Spotting and talking to TRX Manager 

TRX Manager for Rig Control

QRZ both lookup and logging

WSJT-X and JTAlert

Manually uploading all SAT qsos via TQSL

Keeping all these things in sync had become a nightmare. I had a full page sheet of reconciliation instructions I wrote to myself !

After 6 hours yesterday, start to finish I had completely converted to DXLabSuite. Now all the functions I was doing piecemeal are unified under DXL! 

Absolutely astounding. As my other posts indicate, I have a few things to iron out yet, but I truly regret waiting this long to convert.

Thanks so much for your efforts and let me know where and how to contribute!

73 and really do appreciate your help and the quality of the software.

Re: SpotCollector Font Color for unworked / unconfirmed

Dave AA6YQ
 

+ AA6YQ comments below

When clicking ctrl-need in SC I currently see 3 entities i.e. Sri Lanka, Ukraine and Austria (all in red font). Double Clicking each one followed by clicking DXCC in DXK's Log Page Display shows many previous QSO's that have been completed (including those that are Confirmed, Verified and / or worked) for each.

+ Thanks, Curt. Please do the following:

1. On the Awards tab of DXKeeper's Configuration window, check the "Automatically recompute realtime award tracking" box if it isn't already checked

2. At the bottom of the "Check Progress" tab of DXKeeper's Main window, click the Recompute button; this will rebuild your log's DXCC progress table (to which SpotCollector refers when determining "need") by scanning your logged QSOs

3. When step 3 has completed, on the "Spot Database" tab of SpotCollector's Configuration window, click the Recompute button; this will cause SpotCollector to update the "neededness" of each Spot Database Entry based on the updated DXCC Progress table created by step 2

+ Now depress the CTRL key while clicking the Need button in SpotCollector's Filter panel; do you still see entries for stations in entities that are not ATNOs?

+ Note: Step 1 above will eliminate the need to perform steps 2 and 3 in the future.

Re: Manually Entering Satellite Contacts to Catch Up?

Aha! Thanks Bill, as soon as I went to Config  > Log Panel > and checked Propagation, the main log form showed :
Drop down for mode : SAT
Drop down for name : like XW-2B
Drop down for mode (xponder mode, not op mode) liek Mode B or A or J

I assume if I need to enter my paper notes on the log form, it will now include that info in the LoTW submission, is that right?
So when I put a contact in the log form manually, and then right click on it after it has been saved and shows in the log, will allow me to upload directly that qso to LoTW. I'll put a dummy qso in there with KB7IJ ...whom I have worked hundreds of times on the sats.

Re: Manually Entering Satellite Contacts to Catch Up?

Thanks Dave,

The issue is the main log screen does not have entries for SAT NAME and SAT MODE, so when those are automatically uploaded to LoTW, they do not go up as SAT qsos.

I have DXK set for auto-upload and it works GREAT for the TS-590sg and WSJT-x with Commander. I can't tell you how impressed I am with that combo.

So, what am I missing in terms of being able to manually enter a SAT QSO, so that when it is automatically uploaded to LoTW it will have the right info?

Sorry to be so thick. But I'll catch on...  :-)

Hi Kirk,

although you can simply delete the log database, you are probably better just deleting all the QSOs in your current DXKeeper log. The reason is that the log database contains other data related to your configuration that you would not need to reconfigure if the empty log was retained.

To delete all QSOs, first backup the log ("DXKeeper->Config->Backup Folder->Backup"), just in case you change your mind; then remove any log page filter ("DXKeeper->Log QSOs->Filter->X icon" while pressing the Ctrl key) and hit "DXKeeper->Log QSOs->Delete" button while pressing the Ctrl key. *Note that this deletes all your QSOs without any possible recovery unless you have a backup of your log*, only do it if you mean it!
