Re: DX Filters on Comments


Gary, they are NOT case sensitive. *SOTA* and *SoTa* are the same. SeventyThree(s).

I’m being alerted to DXcluster spots with comments that mention SOTA using the alerting string *SOTA*



I hope I would also get alerts for Bear Island and Shetland Island spot comments (both separate entities for CQ but not for DXCC) although I wonder if the alerting strings are case-sensitive …  I haven’t checked them yet since they are both as rare as hen’s teeth and I don’t like to generate fake cluster spots.

Jim, I've never tried it, but in theory, it works like this:


RTTY  Blocks DX Spots where the comment text is RTTY.

RTTY*  Blocks DX Spots where the comment text starts with RTTY.

*RTTY  Blocks DX Spots where the comment text ends with RTTY

*RTTY*  Blocks DX Spots where RTTY is somewhere in the comment text.

Try *RTTY* instead of RTTY.

I have set a filter on dx spots to filter out spots that have RTTY in the comment field.  I still see comments that contain RTTY.  Is it case sensitive?  Can it occur anywhere in the string ?  I don’t want to filter based on the band plan, because there are non-rtty spots in the rtty portions of the band I want to see.  See picture attached.
