60M Stats

vjohnson@...
 

Is there an EASY way to see 60 stats without going through all of the filtering steps?

How can I add 60M to the "DXView Info" matrix?   That would be MOST helpful, too!

How can I add 60M to "Check Progress" > DXCC progress button  OR  make a separate "Progress" button for 60M like there is for the other reports (WAC reports, WAS, Maidenhead reports.....etc)?????


Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

You *can not*

For what? DXCC does not accept 60M and Dave has stated clearly
that he will not include 60M until DXCC accepts 60M single band
confirmations.

How can I add 60M to "Check Progress" > DXCC progress button OR
make a separate "Progress" button for 60M like there is for the other
reports (WAC reports, WAS, Maidenhead reports.....etc)?????
One could write a script ...

+ The ARRL goes out of its way to avoid promoting DXing on 60m. None of its HF awards - DXCC, WAC, or WAS count QSOs made on 60m.

+ As Joe W4TV has pointed out, you can create a script to automate the 4-step process now required to see a DXCC-style progress report on 60m. I've placed such a script in this Group's Files area:

https://groups.io/g/DXLab/files/DXKeeper%20Scripts//60m%20DXCC.txt

+ Download it into DXKeeper's Scripts folder, and you'll be able to invoke it by clicking the Scripts button that will appear in the Filter panel at the bottom of DXKeeper's Main window's "Log QSOs" tab after you click the ~ button.

+ Even if I didn't share the ARRL's view that 60m is too narrow for DXing, extending DXKeeper's "DXCC Progress Report" function to include a column for 60m would cause endless trouble, because QSOs made in this band don't count for DXCC awards. An op whose only QSO with 9N is on 60m, for example, would be confused by his or her total entity count being one less than expected. Extending DXLab's realtime DXCC award tracking to support 60m would generate even more confusion. The nooks and crannies in the current DXCC award program rules are challenging enough without reporting statistics for a band that doesn't count. If the ARRL extends the DXCC award program to support 60m, I'll extend DXLab in a heartbeat.

+ Note that DXLab applications do provide realtime award tracking and progress reporting for the CQ DX Marathon and CW WPX awards, in which count 60m QSOs count.

I use this to check DXCC Progess on 60 meters:

QSO_Begin BETWEEN #2020-01-01 00:00# and #2020-12-31 23:59# AND BAND='60M'
