SWISSLOG for Windows – Update 5.99

Version  5.99 25.12.2018

This version includes the following corrections/enhancements:

  • NEW: DX Alerts: Now you can set DX Alerts in the renewed Schedules function.Swisslog will show up a DX Alert dialog when reading any spot of the callsigns defined as DX Alerts during the defined range of date  (you can even set a sound announcement!). Please read the Schedules / DX Alerts chapter in the Swisslog help (Other features).
  • NEW: JS8Call support. Please read “Digital modes interfaces” in Help.
  • NEW: Tools / Export log to WSJT-X / JTDX: now with just a single click, you can export all your QSOs worked from the modes recognised by WSJT-X / JTDX and Swisslog will create and copy the wsjtx_log.adi directly into the log folder of WSJT-X and/or JTDX. Swisslog will also create a backup copy of the existing wsjtx_log.adi (wsjtx_log_bak.adi) to revert operation in case of problems. Please read the Other Features chapter in the Swisslog help for further details.
  • NEW: Realtime entry: now you can switch realtime entry ON/OFF by double clicking in the date field. In realtime mode, background colour in the start/end time and date fields will be set to yellow. Otherwise will be set to white colour.
  • NEW: Statistic Quick Info View: Splitter bars position are now saved to remember user customization.
  • NEW: Image viewer: now window position and size is saved to remember these settings for the next session. Defined a timeout of 10 seconds to avoid freezing when an image takes a lot to download.
  • NEW: Added the QSL Manager field to the default query in logbook views.
  • NEW: World Map: Now there is an “ALL” option in the Gridsquares field to display all confirmed/worked/needed grid squares in all bands.
  • NEW: Added Diploma 16 to Diploma 20 fields in the PQTH table to allow more awards.
  • NEW: Added WAZ-QSL, WAZ-LOTW, eZ40 (eQSL), ILLW (International Lighthouse/Lighthouse Weekend) and WLOTA statistics.
  • Deleted: Dx message window: Option “Update Quick-Stat automatically”. This option created many side effects. It really had no sense because the info displayed in the Quick Info was impossible to read if many spots were entering at the same time.
  • Deleted: Update AGCW member list from Internet: AGCW no longer makes available their member list due to EU GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation).
  • Changed: LoTW synch requires SSL connections with TLS 1.2 which is only supported in Windows Vista or higher. If you have Windows XP this function will be disabled.
  • Corrected: ADIF import: the OPERATOR field from ADIF was wrongly imported to L_OPERATOR and C_OP_NAME (this field is the logging operator’s callsign). Now at first start up of this version, Swisslog will read all your callsigns from all your MyQTHs and will delete them if found in the L_OPERATOR and/or C_OP_NAME fields.
  • Corrected: ADIF import: Swisslog didn’t import any QSO from ADIF files without header.
  • Corrected: ADIF import: “PQTH is not in Edit or Insert mode” error message and importation was aborted.
  • Corrected: Import QSO: when asked to assign an unknown field, column size could not be changed. If field name was very long user could not wider column.
  • Corrected: Import QSO: violation error if trying to start a new importation without closing the window of the last importation. Now Swisslog will try to close the last window of the last importation (if exists) before starting a new importation.
  • Corrected: Importing QSOs from another Swisslog database: Time field was displayed as 30/12/1899 in QSO listings.
  • Corrected: World map: if Swisslog is installed for the first time, the default high quality texture was not used and land territories were displayed in green colour.
  • Corrected: World map: if selecting a band in the DXCC field where you have no QSOs, the DXCC colour status was not displayed correctly.
  • Changed: World map: redesigned the upper part of the window to allow more space for map. Configuration button name has been changed by an icon.
  • Corrected: Band maps / Dx messages: “” is not a valid integer value” error message when single clicking on a spot with /MM stations.
  • Corrected: Band maps / Dx messages: now Swisslog uses the UTC time defined in Windows instead the time difference to UTC defined in the selected My QTH in order to calculate spot lifetime. No spots were displayed if user didn’t set the right time difference in the selected My QTH.
  • Corrected: Dx messages: when double clicking on a spot, if “Log QSO” was one of the double click actions, the last spot appeared repeatedly all the time.
  • Corrected: WSJT-X/JTDX link: Swisslog didn’t read data after closing WSJT-X or JTDX then opening it again.
  • Corrected: different errors when creating a new logbook
  • Corrected: Add QSO, “Info QSL” tab: Swisslog counted QSOs as eQSL confirmed if the station was eQSL AG member but eQSL confirmation was not received.
  • Corrected: eQSL and LoTW confirmations were not added in the DME statistic definitions.
  • Corrected: Sound Dx announcements: if using several statistics in Dx message window, sound announcements for New, Needed or Worked didn’t work well. Sound announcements will only read the Dx Type (New, Needed, Worked) from the first statistic in the DX message window. If you need sound announcements from several statistics, you will have to use different DX message windows selecting only one statistic in every one of them.
  • Corrected: some minor cosmetic errors.
  • Updated: 30MDG, AGCW, ARLHS, BCA, BDM, CLUBLOG, CWOPS, DCE, DCI, DEE, DEFE, DERESP, DFCF, DIG, DMC, DME, DMVE, EA QRP, EPC, eQSL, FISTS, FOC, HSC, IOTA, LYNX, LOTW, MF, NDG,  SKCC, SOTA, TBDXC, TEN TEN, URE, WCA and WFF statistics on 24/12/2018
  • Updated country table. THANK YOU VERY MUCH to Erik, EI4KF.

WSJT-X 2.0.0 READ….

The FT8 and MSK144 protocols have been enhanced in a way that is not backward compatible with older program versions. 

The new protocols become the world-wide standards starting 

  10 December, 2018,

and all users should upgrade to WSJT-X 2.0 by

 1 January 2019. 

After that date, only the new FT8 and MSK144 should be used on th

Update LOG4OM 1.35.0

Changelog:

Moved resources to main Log4OM.com project website

Small adjustments in menu

Log4OM download resources moved to HTTPS

Country identification routine fixed and improved

User Callsign Lookup is now able to work also with main SCL files (for internal team management use, but available to everyone)

Forced ADIF export in UTF-8 format to comply with special codepages

Changed upload ADIF version towards LOTW to ADIF3

Improved Clublog exception search mechanism

December YOTA Month 2018

 

The entire month of December several youngsters will become active with

YOTA

as suffix in the callsign.

The idea for this is to show the amateur radio hobby to youth and to encourage youngsters to be active on the ham radio waves.

Give a demonstration in a school or local club, gather together with your friends, grab a pizza and make some QSOs or enjoy a great pile-up.

Let us all show this great hobby to the world!

Feel free to make a QSO with the youngsters, they are happy to get some attention and exchange information.

Licensed and unlicensed youth will be making QSOs, be aware this could be their first radio contact ever and give them a chance to experience a possible new hobby.

LOG4OM Update 1.34.0

Changelog:

Award Management. Added new AwardOverride.csv file to override DXCC automatically calculated by Log4OM (or when Log4Om is not able to determine DXCC from prefix in WFF)

LoTW upload page automatically open on program closing if new QSO are available and not uploaded yet (Settings options in LOTW config page)

Improved logging on some situations

Fixed an issue on historic (monthly) backup under some circumstances

Fixed an issue that miscalculate locator from Clublog coordinates and may produce unexpected issues when a callsign is not found on external source

Fixed (added some proximity logic) to callsign analyzing function that is guessing that KH7P “could” be a prefix bounded to Hawaii instead of a full callsign.
This will prevent correct identification of callsign like KH1/KH7P as Log4om is guessing as a first instance that KH7P may be a country SUFFIX instead of a callsign, in order to maximize search chances. Incidentally KH7P is a valid prefix for Hawaii that will override check on KH1

Clublog error while deleting a QSO in some circumstances fixed.

New option in SETTINGS / SERVICES to make data quality enrichment in QSO added by external software using communicator (JTAlert, WSJT, GridTracker, etc.)

Implementation of new User Special Callsign definition database, accessible from [Settings -> UCL Database] menu

Satellite mode now shows red label with satellite code instead of “SATELLITE MODE” In main user interface, if a valid satellite is selected
