How can I see the latest update date?

Many thanks

Where is the database relevant to the German DARC DOK Award?

+ The list of known DOKs can be found in the file Award230.txt in DXKeeper's Databases folder

How can I see the latest update date?

+ This file was last updated on 2017-08-01; I have received no updates since then.

73,

Dave, AA6YQ

The best (for me anyway) solution is to register (free!) with the DARC Community Logbook and upload your logs to there.
Go to  https://dcl.darc.de/public/index.php
and create a new account. Once you have uploaded your logs, you can see matches with all your DOK's, and you can apply for the award directly.
You can also import your LoTW log, which can provide extra matches.

I upload regularly there.

Hi Carlo,

It is easy to register, although the website is only in German and English.
Once registered, upload your whole log (maybe in sections if it is very large!), and then you will be able to see which DOK's are confirmed via LoTW and the DARC logbook, and you can also then apply for other awards directly, not just DOK, but also WAE, EUDX, EU RTTY, WAC, and others.

OK, some remains in German, but it's not difficult to work out what most of the sections mean.

Dave AA6YQ may have some advice?

+ DXKeeper provides a DOK item with each logged QSO. This item is accessible via the DOK textbox in the Award panel on the Main window's "Log QSOs" tab. You can type a "DOK code" into this textbox. As far as I know, there are only two ways to determine a station's "DOK code":

1. ask your QSO partner during the QSO

2. from the QSL card you've received from your QSO partner

+ I'm not aware of any database or online service that will link a callsign and date to a DOK.

+ You can generate a DOK progress report by clicking the "DOKs" button in the "Other progress reports" panel in the lower-right corner of the Main window's "Check Progress" tab.

+ If you check the "DARC DOK region selection" box in the "Other Awards" panel on the right side of the Configuration window's Awards tab, then DXKeeper will load the file Awards230.txt from DXKeeper's Databases folder (230 is the DXCC Country Code for Germany). This file contains more than 4000 entries, so this process takes a few seconds. Each entry in this file contains 3 components: a DOK Code, a region, and a DOK Name, for example:

A01,Baden:Konstanz

+ This entry means "A01 is the DOK code for Konstanz in the Baden region".

+ With the "DARC DOK region selection" box checked, clicking the ? button next to the DOK box in the Award panel on the Main window's "Log QSOs" tab will display a small window entitled "Main Award Selector: DARC DOK". The two selectors in this window enable you to choose a DOK by Code, or by Name. Thus if your QSO partner replies that he is operating from Konstanz in Baden, you'll be able to select that Name, which will populate the QSO's DOK item with A01.

+ The Awards230.txt file is distributed with every DXKeeper release, but the last update I received was on 2017-08-01 from Koen ON7RK; see

https://groups.io/g/DXLab/message/170197

+ and

https://groups.io/g/DXLab/message/170203

+ You can add new DOK entries to Awards230.txt yourself, but I'd appreciate it if you'd send any new entries to me so that I can include them in the Awards230.txt that is distributed with each DXKeeper release. If someone or some group wants to actively manage Awards230.txt , that would be great!

Hi Dave and the group,

Yes, those instructions are great for those that confirm on air, but that's not always possible or practical with digital modes.
The one single advantage of using the DARC Community Logbook is that when DL's upload there - and a great many do - that is enough to be able to claim the DOK towards the award.
You can supplement that with paper cards that then need checking, but does add an extra layer of housekeeping and expense.

It is just an alternative option, and one which I find quite useful.
