Hi every1,

according to his QRZ.com record and to the QSL card which he shows in his record, it's definitely Asiatic Russia.



ITU zone 21 and CQ zone 18 are Asia. On that ITU zone map you see the Europe/Asia border in pink dots, and ITU zone 21 being much farther to the East:



(Source: http://www4.plala.or.jp/nomrax/ITU/zone21.htm )

And the Krasnojarsk Region (RDA: KK-nn) is a Central Asian region. See this on Google Maps:



"A" marks Krasnojarsk region. The red line is (very roughly) the Europe/Asia border.

So... no doubt about him being in Asia.

Hope that helps.

Guys,
I worked that station (RW0BT) a week or so ago so checked the details. I checked his address in the detail section of QRZ and shown here  as Dudinka, NP39cj. Can’t say Asiatic or European though. Logged as European. He seems more southerly on the map from what i remember now so wonder if he was based away from his registered address and didn’t change the call settings.

Hi Ed,

There are two different processes at play here.

1. The country name displayed below the decoded callsigns is determined by examining the callsign. These are a "Best Guess" as they don't involve any actual lookup of the specific callsign.

2. The country name for your current qso partner, shown in the log fields is first determined as per the first method and then updated with the results of a QRZ XML lookup (if enabled) or from a previous Log entry (if available).

Regarding RW0BT, it is first determined as AS Russsia (dxcc 15). The
qrz xml lookup returns EU Russia (dxcc 54). The xml lookup is
assumed to be the most accurate. I do note however, that eQSL shows
as AS Russia and the HamQTH xml lookup also returns AS Russia. Which
is correct?

No Joy.

As to using "Restore Point" .. that I will have to think carefully

As I have been trying in vain to find the solution, for a week I guess, there
is a lot of stuff to be lost if I revert.

I don't do Email on that computer but do have 2 or 3 programs that have

It is a rather Draconian overkill to need to do a system-restore merely
to fix an error that Microsoft caused itself to have.

    Thanks for the reply Laurie.

    A toggle that would allow the op to select or deselect this option would be ideal and would allow each op to choose specifically which award he is working towards.

    A log entry cannot have an "M" in the Lotw_Cfm field unless a valid QSL has been received (modes match) from LotW. So a toggle that allows JTAlert to focus on THAT field rather than LotW_QSL_RCVD would do the trick.

cross-discussion. I posted this question today on the DXLabs reflector, 
and it was suggested that I ask here, so here goes:

     If I upload a JT-9 QSO with the mode as "JT-9" and the other 
station also uploads with that mode, no problem. The modes match, so 
credit is allowed by ARRL towards a single-mode award, such as JT-9 WAS.

     However, if the other station uploads the same QSO as DATA mode 
instead, the QSO does not earn credit for single-mode, because the modes 
do not match exactly.

     I currently have 121 QSOs that have been QSL'd, however the mode 
the other stations uploaded was "DATA". Now, I can change all 121 of 
those QSOs to "DATA" mode on my end, but then all the rest of my JT-9 
QSOs won't match!

     DXKeeper uses a field title "LotW CFM" to indicate if the modes are 
a proper match, by placing an "M" in the field (along with a couple of 
other characters for other purposes).

     As JTAlert is structured right now, it only looks at LotW QSL Rcvd 
and QSL Cards Rcvd (e-qsl is an option, but not for ARRL awards). 
Therefore, the 121 JT-9 QSOs I have show as LotW RCVD, but since the 
modes don't match, they are invalid for ARRL single-mode awards.

     My proposal is that there be some kind of toggle (since I'm sure 
not everyone is chasing single-mode awards) that would include this LotW 
Cfm field when determining if an entity has been confirmed or no.

Thanks for considering it!

locked JT-Alert call (mine)

Stephen M. Shearer <wb3lgc@...>
 

I am using WSJT-X and the latest JT-Alert...
Within JT-Alert, how do I change/reset the callsign?
I have a couple of club calls and when I switched to the other call,
JT-Alert didn't change. Station Alert is OK. station call can't be changed
(that I can find).
WSJT-X is correct.

Laurie,

I located his city on a map to try to determine which area of Russia he is in, but since I do not know the dividing line between Europe and Asia in Russia this is a problem (looks like Asia). I also could try to drop him an email and ask, directly but he may not know English and I only know a few words of Russian. I could also try the JTAlert-X text message capability if I see him on the air again.

I am not sure that all of this is worth the effort since I do not need his DXCC entity for any award...mostly, I was just curious why the two entities disagreed and you explained that adequately.

Thanks!

Hi Ed,

There are two different processes at play here.
  1. The country name displayed below the decoded callsigns is determined by examining the callsign. These are a "Best Guess" as they don't involve any actual lookup of the specific callsign.
  2. The country name for your current qso partner, shown in the log fields is first determined as per the first method and then updated with the results of a QRZ XML lookup (if enabled) or from a previous Log entry (if available).

Regarding RW0BT, it is first determined as AS Russsia (dxcc 15). The qrz xml lookup returns EU Russia (dxcc 54). The xml lookup is assumed to be the most accurate. I do note however, that eQSL shows as AS Russia and the HamQTH xml lookup also returns AS Russia. Which is correct?

Laurie,

I worked a station, RW0BT, this morning and I noticed that in the call sign area (at the top of the window) of JTAlert-X that his DXCC entity showed as Russia (AS) and below that in the log info area, he showed as European Russia. I believe that I have observed this discrepancy with Russian stations before, but I cannot give you specific call signs.

Thanks in advance for looking into this!

After sending the " 73 " message, WSJTX pops up the log message. I then OK it and then JTAlert pops up a message that the QSO was logged.

After the session is over and I am quitting for the day, I open Logger-32, and download the .ADI file from WSJTX. I then delete the .ADI file from WSJT.

I ama trying to get the laptop setup for portable operations. I want the two computers to stay in sync until which time I change the CAll to K4DJG/4 and use a different grid square. Copying the log from one computer to the other is OK, as they are both located at the same place.

Am I missing something about the logging?

Bob, K4DJG

Bob,

It is possible, but depends on what Logging method you are using.

How are you logging QSOs?

Hello,
Me too using ODBC path for 3 free PC on one HRD all is work well.
Just do a correct configuration on all PC with the ODBCAD32.exe in windows system (not 64)

You don’t say what logging system you use however this may generate an idea.

I use HRD and generally use one machine for all my ham operating. However at times I retire to a ‘sun room’ where the laptop is used. I use HRD and simply use an ODBC link to the logbook on another machine which can be defined to access a database on another networked machine. As JT-Alert points to an ODBC connection then that was already present after installation so all logging goes to one central logbook.

Is there a way to sync the logs for multiple computers, and where are the logs that JTAlert uses located?

I like to run WSJT-X on both the home machine and a laptop. I can't figure out how to make the notifications work properly, such as B4 and needed state, etc.

Is there a way to copy the logs from one computer to the other so that they are identical?

Thanks
