Re: Label Printing
Hi George. I probably can’t add much to the printing and replying to QSL chore. At one time I used “BV” by DF3CB. I stopped using it several years ago because of the difficulty in formatting the label templates and I seem to recall having to recreate the database used to create the labels. Within the last year or so Scott, N3FJP, was convinced that we sorely needed the ability to print multiple QSOs on a single label and that has eased the chore immensely (thank you again Scott).
You probably know this but if not for multiple QSOs with the same station:
1. Enter the stations call in the “Call” field.
2. Click on “Search”.
3. Highlight the first entry, hit SHIFT key and highlight the last entry.
4. Click on “Print QSL Strip”
I haven’t tried this but it might work on various calls:
1. In an unused field i.e.: the “Other” field enter something meaningful to you i.e.: “REP” (replied to QSL) or whatever you want to use.
2. Click on “Clear”
3. Enter “REP” in the “Other” field.
4. Click on “Search”.
5. Highlight the first entry, hit SHIFT key and highlight the last entry.
6. Click on “Print QSL Strip”
7. Go back into each of these records “Other” field and delete “REP” or just leave it there if you don’t use this field for anything else.
Again I have not tried this and although it’s kludge (sp) it just might work.
Sorry I can’t help much more than that. ACLog has a fairly robust QSL’ing module but like you I wish there was a little more.

Pat, let me pick your brain for a moment. You mentioned returning
a lot of QSLs from the JAs. I know exactly what you are talking
about. Now, how exactly do you go about generating a large group of
labels? I know how to print QSL labels a few at a time but have you
found a way to mark Qs for QSLs and then print out 50-100 labels in one mass
printing? I have never figured a way with ACLog to do
this. I've always thought ACLog was about perfect except for the QSL
issue. It's fine for the occasional QSLer who initiates a QSL after a contact
but I have never found a way to handle simply a box or group of envelopes of
QSLs from the bureau . So I end up using another program
solely to do my QSLing, which is a big pain. How are you handling
