Re: Discrepancies Between LOTW and Logger32 DXCC counts

Gary Hinson
 

Hi Pete.

 

Here are some suggestions to try:

 

  1. First, be sure to check the options/selections at the bottom of the DXCC awards table in Logger32.  It’s possible to select and report on CW QSOs only, for example, and/or just one of your callsigns and/or just this year’s log, and/or just QSL card confirmations … which may well account for the apparent shortage, e.g. compare these two:






  1. It is possible Logger32’s statistics are broken leaving gaps in its awards tables, so recalculate your statistics using the recalc function in Logger32 under Tools à Database maintenance:

   

A recalc will take a while (it takes something like 30 seconds to process every 1,000 QSOs in my log, on my PC) but ensures that the QSOs in your logbook are properly reflected in the awards tables.

 

  1. Export your entire log from Logger32 as ADIF (one callsign at a time if you manage several calls in the same logbook) and upload it/them to Club Log.  Select the Club Log import option to replace your existing log/s.  After the import and validation completes, Club Log will email you reports identifying any problematic QSOs e.g. wrong country allocation.  Use that to check and correct your log (e.g. South Cooks stations misidentified as North Cooks and vice versa).   [As you have already validated your log using Club Log’s rules, this step may be redundant … but maybe it will find something wrong after all.]

 

  1. Systematically check the DXCC awards table in Logger32 against the DXCC reports from LoTW and/or Club Log’s table, looking for and exploring specific discrepancies (e.g. compare the band or mode totals to home-in on the ones that are different, or visually compare the DXCC tables line-by-line).  This is tedious but if you really do have such a major difference, you will have plenty of discrepancies to hunt down!  It’s harder when you are down to the last one or two discrepancies, trust me.  Satisfying when you resolve them though!

 

73 GL,

Gary   ZL2iFB

Yes, I ran Synchronize LOTW (from ADIF).  I also ran the DXCC code check with Clublog, but the discrepancy remains

Re: How to remove...

Gary Hinson
 

Another approach is to ‘consolidate’ the statistics for all the digimodes into one column, using the menu that appears when you right-click the worked-confirmed window:

 

 

Likewise with the phone modes (e.g. AM, DSB and SSB QSOs all count as phone).

 

A disadvantage of deleting modes from the ‘Bands and modes’ is that you will no longer be able to log QSOs on those modes if your interests change (e.g. if a rare DXpedition ONLY uses some obscure digimode?).  If you don’t care, go ahead.  Make my day.

It is in Tools | Setup Bands and Modes  and there it is column no. 8

If you want to remove e.g. FT8 you have to do it for every band it has been assigned to, one Y left will keep the column, hi.

Backup - Verify

John Pink
 

Running W10 and Logger 3.50.367

 

My Logger is set to backup on exit, and occasionally, – that is when I get around to it,  I ‘Zip’ the databases and Logbook– and of course I include the User files.  Today was one of those days that I remembered to do the housekeeping!

 

The backup went well, but when I came to ‘verify’  I got an error message - #503.  I checked that the save location was correct – it was, and to my surprise, the saved files were there in the folder, and apparently fully readable.

 

After, some investigation I changed the save location to another disk – and everything was ok.  However, I was keen to understand the original problem.  It appears that there were many backups in the folder - too many – more than 10, and at that point ‘verify’ results in the error message.

 

I deleted some old backups, and ‘verify’  work correctly again, but when I backed up several time  - enough that there were more than 10 copies in the folder, it fell over.

 

The same occurs with the ‘Zip user Files’ utility.   It is the same on my laptop copy of L32.

 

Small housekeeping issue, that I am sure will be easily fixed – please.

Jim, AD1C, has an app that you run on the ADIF file before importing and it fixes that.  I have used it for years and it covers most if not all state QPs, some of the combination state QPs (IN7QPNE which also includes DEQP) NEWEQP (New England QP, NAQPs.  You can find out all of the QPs that it handles.

Re: DXCC 000 errors cropping up in logbook

Gary Hinson
 

A common example would be maritime mobiles: they may sign and upload their logs to LoTW, and match your QSO details, but they don’t count towards DXCC.  They do, however, count towards the ARRL grid challenge if they confirmed their grids.

 

Also I deliberately use DXCC=000 for DX QSOs in my log that cannot be confirmed, in order to take them out of the statistics.

Were the operations approved by the DXCC desk?  Do the approved dates for the operations match what is in your logbook?  Do you use ClubLog to "verify" your Q's?

In all cases in my log (~50K Q's), those with DXCC=000 are for operations that were either not approved or the dates were incorrect or out of operation activity timelines (pirate?).

In all cases within my log where I show DXCC=000, my logbook was incorrect or matched the above qualifications.

All those 000s were somehow put in my log as it was entered.  I did discover, though, that there were hundreds more in some transferred contest logs. 

I've belatedly discovered the Clublog verification process, and am running it now.
