Re: Problem with eQSL downloads

David Rounds
 

Do you have any new eQSL inbox records since the date you requested.

Typically this error message simply indicates that there are no new eQSL acknowledgements since the starting date entered in your download request.

When you click the [All Since] button to request a download of new records, try entering a date that is before the most recent acknowledged eQSL log.  For example, If the most recent QSL that has been acknowledged via eQSL is dated July 5th, specify that date when attempting to download new records.  The fact that you have already downloaded the acknowledgement will not affect that acknowledgement.  It just insures that there is at least one record in the download.

Hello.  Does N3FJP have a log for the IOTA contest?  I looked at the website and didn’t see one but wanted to ask in case I missed it.  Our club is participating in the contest from a local island and we need a log that will keep track of the serial number.  One of our operators is blind and does not have the ability during a contest to go up in to the log to see the contact number.

Hi Jack,

Thanks for your e-mail.  I'm sorry that you have run into trouble.  There aren't any other related settings besides those on the eQSL form.  Try clearing and reenter your settings.  Also, if you have unusual characters that would throw off the URL eQSL builds, change your settings to only include letters and numbers, without slashes and any other special characters.

Enjoy!

Use ADIF Master http://www.dxshell.com/adif-master.html which can save your ADIF file as an Excel CSV (File->Save As --- the last choice just above Exit).

Off Topic: 10_Meters_Open_USA e-mail Group

Scott Davis
 

Hi All,

I have really been enjoying the sporadic E the last few weeks on 10 meters!  It's been a blast being able to work the closer in states.  I just got my 50th state, Vermont, confirmed on 10 meters via LoTW for WAS on 10 last evening!

10 meters has been open for a few hours roughly every other day and I've worked hundreds of stations the last few weeks.  One of the things that really struck me is how many hams commented that it was the first time in months they could remember hearing 10 meters open, even though 10 has been open quite often these past few weeks.  They just haven't been checking at the right times!

We have 10 meter beacons to check, but we have to remember to do that and it seems that perhaps another method of alerting 10 meter enthusiasts to meter openings might be worthwhile.

I don't know if this is a good idea or not, but I thought it might we worth setting up an e-mail group to get the word out:

https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/10_Meters_Open_USA/info

Here is the group description:

Sporadic E on 10 meters is a lot of fun!  While 10 meters is always fun for DX when sunspots are active, sporadic E on 10 meters can come alive anytime, even at the bottom of the sunspot cycle.  It can happen at the flip of a switch and is much tougher to predict.

With the shorter skip that usually accompanies sporadic E, it is often possible to work the closer in states and even work all states on 10 meters!

The trick is knowing when 10 meters is open.  We have lots of beacons below 28.300 to listen for, but we have to remember to tune there and check back often, since conditions can change quickly.

The purpose of this e-mail group is to let other 10 meter enthusiasts know when 10 meters is open in the continental United States.  If the beacons come alive or you are hearing skip on 10 meters, be sure to e-mail 10_Meters_Open_USA@... to let us know!

If beacons are all you are hearing, there is an excellent chance it is because no one is calling, so after you e-mail the group, start calling CQ!  If you hear others calling, by all means, answer them!

All Amateur Radio operators in the USA are welcome.  If this sounds like a good idea, please click the Join Group button above now!

Since this is off topic, please don't reply here.  If this sounds good or you have another suggestion, please join this group and let's kick it around!

Hi Arnie,

Thanks for your e-mail.  It is normal.  Disabling the quote and apostrophe keys has saved considerable headaches for guys attempting to parse data in applications outside of AC log (and for me in supporting them).  I'm not planning to enable them at this time.

Re: Worked vs. QSL Received

Christopher Scibelli
 

You can use Clublog.  Export your LoTW file from the ARRL.  You'll see a V for a band slot which has been confirmed via LoTW and then export your AC log and it will pickup those which were confirmed by QSL cards.  With a little bit of work one can tell which countries need to have their QSLs checked by an ARRL card checker.

Re: Worked vs. QSL Received

David Rounds
 

Here are two approaches to this issue, one that gives you a list of the countries worked vs confirmed and the other, a method to review the log to manually search for unconfirmed countries.

To get the list of countries for manual comparison:

1. Open the Awards by state, County, Country window.
2. Click [Calculate] to show summary lists for all stations worked.
3. Click on the "Worked" header under the "Countries" section.  This copies that list to the Windows clipboard. 
4. Open Notepad and paste the contents of the clipboard into the Notepad window.
5. Go back to the Amateur Locations Worked List window then click the "QSL Received" checkbox then click the [Calculate] button.  This will update the list to show the confirmed contacts.
6. Compare the Countries Worked list shown to the list you copied into your notepad.  If you remove each confirmed entry from the list in notepad, the entries remaining will be the unconfirmed Countries.

To manually review the countries confirmed do the following:

Click on the "Country" column to sort your log by country.  As you scroll through the log, review the information shown in the R or R-Conf column of the log.  The R column shows if an acknowledgment has been received, the R-Conf shows the type of confirmation.

For example, in my log it shows a call for Australia where I posted the call to LotW but no confirmation has been received.  For Brazil, I have two calls in the log.  Both have been posted to LotW and eQSL but one was confirmed via LotW (R-C = L) and the other via eQSL (R-C = E).
