Update Swisslog Version: 5.97 (05.12.2017)

      • NEW: Band map function! wide zoom in/out range, custom font size for DX-Spots, band filtering (including 60m), resizable window, Full spot details (including if LotW/eQSL user) when placing mouse cursor over a DX spot. Including the following Swisslog exclusive functions:

        • Customizable statistic selection! By default is DXCC but user can select any statistic.

        • Enable/disable CAT link by means of a button

        • Gradient colors for frequency ruler

        • Colors customization: background, ruler gradients, ruler measures, frequency and even buttons!

        • You can have as many band maps as you want with different band filters, colors and statistics!

        • Even you can place every band map as standalone window for dual monitor systems!

          This version includes the following corrections/enhancements:

          Can be used along with normal DX-Message window. Many thanks to Tom, N1MM for giving me some clues when I was stucked at a certain point developing this new function. Also to Erik, EI4FK for his excellent suggestions and deep testing.

      • NEW: Realtime logging to most important online logs: QRZ, Club Log, eQSL, HAMLOG, HAMQTH and HRDLOG. Multiple callsign configuration for eQSL, HAMLOG and QRZ! It allows to Add/Delete QSOs in realtime and also realtime edition in HAMQTH, HRDLOG and ClubLog.

      • NEW: Tools menu: Function to upload full or partial logbook to eQSL, HAMLOG, HAMQTH (only full), HRDLOG and QRZ.

      • NEW: Support for PSTROTATOR! a fantastic software to control your rotator, UltraBeam and SteppIR now supporting tracking from Swisslog.

      • NEW: Added support for TCI for transceiver control. TCI is a new protocol to control SunSDR transceivers. If using TCI, all spots from every band map will be sent to the SDR Panorama with colours of the corresponding statistic status. User can disable this feature in the Option menu of every band map.

      • NEW: The following news/changes have been made to adapt Swisslog to new ADIF v3.0.7 specifications:

        • Added the following new digital modes: T10, FT8, PSK500, PSK1000, QPSK500, PSKAM10, PSKAM31, PSKAM50, MFSK4, MFSK11, MFSK22, MFSK31,MFSK32, MFSK64, MFSK128, FMHELL, FSKHELL, HELL80 and PSKHELL. Renamed FSQ to FSQCALL. This way Swisslog recognises now all different PSK, MFSK and HELL submodes.

        • ADIF import: new option called “Check if file contains SUBMODE field for MFSK/PSK”. If checked Swisslog will convert/recognise properly all PSK/MFSK submodes if the SUBMODE ADIF field is found in QSOs made on PSK/MFSK mode. Swisslog also recognises now all ADIF SubModes either found in the MODE or SUBMODE ADIF fields and convert them properly. IMPORTANT: First check in the ADIF file that the SUBMODE field is found in every QSO in MFSK/PSK mode.

          The QSL_SENT_VIA field is imported into the QSL_ACTION field following these rules:

          • ‘B’ is imported as ‘Bureau’

          • ‘D’ is imported as ‘Direct’

          • ‘E’ is imported as ‘Electronic’

          • ‘M’ is imported as ‘QSL Manager’

        • Changed the following band names to adapt them to ADIF specifications: 1.5cm to 1.25, 10cm to 9cm and 2200m to 2190m

        • ADIF Export: Swisslog will now export MODE and SUBMODE fields accordingly (except for LoTW synchronization that only MODE will be exported). The QSL_ACTION field is exported in the QSL_SENT_VIA field following these rules:

          • ‘Bureau’ is exported as ‘B’

          • ‘Direct’ is exported as ‘D’

          • ‘Lotw’, ‘eQSL’, ‘LOTW+eQSL’ is exported as ‘E’

        • Added new Swisslog fields: L_LOTW_SENT, L_EQSL_SENT, L_LOTW_CREDIT_SUBMITTED, L_LOTW_CREDIT_GRANTED, L_CREDIT_SUBMITTED and L_CREDIT_GRANTED. At first start up of this version fields L_LOTW_SENT and L_EQSL_SENT will be set to 1 if L_LOTW_STATUS/L_EQSL_STATUS contains any data. Users with large logbooks may experience the first start up a bit longer than usual to perform these operations.

      • NEW: Enhanced info tables view. The Info tables view (when double clicking on a statistic field or when editing/viewing info tables contents) now implement column sorting (by clicking on column title) and incremental filtering! Just type anything below the column title and the view will show the matching records (case sensitive!!)

      • NEW: Added option to communicate with JTDX via TCP. If using latest versions of JTALERT along with Swisslog the UDP option doesn’t work and user must use the new TCP option (please read the Digital Modes interfaces, JT65 WSJT-X/JTDX Operation section in help).

      • NEW: WSJT-X/JTDX new operation mode! Now when entering a callsign in the DX Call field (only if using the UDP connection) or when double clicking to make a QSO, the callsign is entered in the Add QSO window of Swisslog like in MixW, FLDIGI, etc. This is very useful because now you don’t need to use any external program (i.e.: JTALERT) to know if you worked before this station and you take all the profits of Swisslog about realtime statistics, membership panel, etc. If you clear the DX Call field the Callsign field in Swisslog will be cleared as well. A new button will appear in the Add QSO window to activate / deactivate the UDP link. Please read the Digital Modes interfaces, JT65 WSJT-X/JTDX Operation section in help to know the new operation method.
