Subject: [DXLab] DXKeeper 15.6.0 is available

This release

- doesn't disable the "Bottom Line Font" panel on the "QSL Configuration" window's "QSL Labels" tab (tnx to Pete OH2EUU)

- prevents erroneous detection of invalid QSO items by the "Sync LoTW QSOs" function (tnx to John W1JA)

- will upload a QSO to LoTW whose RX frequency is not specified (tnx to Tony KG4TAH)

- updates the displayed TQSL version number when selecting a newly installed version of TQSL whose pathname has not changed (tnx to
Phil GU0SUP)

- if a callbook lookup for a station whose callsign ends in /am or /mm specifies a DXCC entity, leaves the QSOS's DXCC code set to 0
(tnx to Rich K1HTV)

- normalizes the tab order on the Advanced Sorts, Filters, and Modifiers window (tnx to Steve K8JQ)

- prevents an errorlog.txt file entry from being generated by DXLogModule.GetSpotDetails (tnx to Ed K2TE)

- when clearing the QSL Queue with "QSL Via" set to LoTW, doesn't change a queued QSO's LoTW_QSL_RCVD item from 'R' to blank if it's
LoTW_QSL_Sent item is set to 'U' or 'Y' (tnx to Björn SM7IUN)

- when clearing the QSL Queue with "QSL Via" set to eQSL, doesn't change a queued QSO's eQSL_QSL_RCVD item from 'R' to blank if it's
eQSL_QSL_Sent item is set to 'U' or 'Y' (tnx to Björn SM7IUN)

- with realtime VUCC award checking enabled, when the "Sync LoTW QSLs" or "Update from LoTW" function reports an LoTW confirmation
that does not specify a grid square on a band on which VUCC is sought, reports the logged QSO's grid square and confirmation status
(tnx to Iain N6ML)

- with "Handling of LoTW QSL detail inconsistencies set to "Overwrite Log Data with LotW data", the after action report shows each
updated item's new value, and its previously logged value (tnx to Iain N6ML)

- with "Handling of LoTW QSL detail inconsistencies set to "Display a dialog box and let operator choose", the after action report
shows each updated item's new value, and its previously logged value, as well as items whose values have been retained (tnx to Iain
N6ML)

- when reporting the results of a "Sync eQSL QSLs" or "Sync LoTW QSLs" or "Update from LoTW" function for a QSO whose QSO mode is
represented by an ADIF mode and ADIF submode, reports the QSO mode

- considers QSOs confirmed via LoTW as confirmed for IOTA (tnx to Peter N5UWY)

- adds RS-44, HO-107, and Taurus to the DefaultSatellites.txt file (tnx to Paul N8HM)

- augments the SecondarySubdivisionDatabase with new Districts defined in http://rdaward.org/press16_eng.txt (tnx to Jerry SM6BZV)

- if "Sync LoTW QSOs" or "Sync LoTW QSLs" are invoked with the Log Page Display filtered, offers a "cancel" option (tnx to Steve
K8JQ)

- includes an EntityCount.txt script (tnx to Rich K1HTV)

- updates the Configuration.htm, ConfigurationLogPageDisplay.htm, Items.htm, and Progress.htm documentation files


Notes:

1. The RDA press release in http://rdaward.org/press16_eng.txt specifies the deletion of 52 Districts, each re-assigned to another
district. The deleted Districts have not been removed from the SecondarySubdivisionDatabase, as logged QSOs likely still refer to
them. If updating those logged QSOs to reference current Districts is the appropriate course of action, a script could be developed
to accomplish that.


2. Update your firewall and anti-malware applications to consider this new version of DXKeeper to be "safe"


3. If this upgrade doesn't work correctly, see the "After an Upgrade" section of
<http://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/ApplicationStoppedWorking>


4. After upgrading, to revert to the previous version of DXKeeper, see
<http://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/RevertApplicationVersion>


DXKeeper 15.6.0 is available via the DXLab Launcher and via
