Entering incomplete QSO info in DXKeeper


Phil Deaver
 

I recently applied for DXCC via a LOTW request. LOTW also let me link in a previous callsign and I received an additional 30 countries credit from the 1970's. The 1970's countries are listed as MIXED (in LOTW) but have no band or mode data, only a date and no time is listed either. I was trying to enter them in DXKeeper (to track them) and even though I uncheck the box "Flag Invalid Callsigns", I still get flashing red messages next to mode and TX band windows. Is there a way to track these countries in DXKeeper? (maybe just make up band and mode info?)

In DXKeeper -> Config -> Awards ... lower left check "Credit only
QSO Creation".

Unfortunately, "Credit only QSO Creation" is not documented in the
Help File.

See: http://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxlabwiki/CreateCreditOnlyQSOs in
the DXLab Wiki

+ Not true. Credit-only QSO Creation" is described in the reference documentation here:

<https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxkeeper/Help/Progress.htm#Generating%20Credit-only%20QSOs>

+ Alternatively, click one of DXKeeper's Help buttons, and navigate to

Checking and Managing Award Progress > Generating Submissions and Managing Award Credits > DXCC > Managing DXCC Credits > Generating Credit-only QSOs

+ I doubt that the learning curve required to master the downloading of DXCC credits is justified by the automated creation of ~30 QSOs.

But not here:
<https://www.dxlabsuite.com/dxkeeper/Help/Configuration.htm#Awards Tab>

where the option actually lives - and is the first place one would
think to look.

* Again, not true. It's right here:
