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
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
The entire month of December several youngsters will become active with
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.
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
NEW: Image viewer: Support to display images encoded in CMYK.
NEW: Image viewer: the image viewer window will be closed automatically after saving the QSO.
NEW: Add QSO > MyQTH: Added the field “Operator Call”. This is very useful for multioperator or clubs to assign the operator. This field will be exported into ADIF as the OPERATOR field.
NEW: Added TTLOC statistic. This statistic counts all Grid Squares (Maidenhead) confirmed by QSL, LoTW and eQSL.
NEW: Logbook view: JTALERT Exportation query in the ADIF Export folder. This query is very useful if you want to synchronise QSO from Swisslog to JTALERT. Use this query in a logbook view to select automatically all QSOs with modes recognised by WSJT-X/JTDX. Use the export function to export QSOs from Swisslog to the log ADIF file used by JTALERT. Simply save the export file with the same name you use for the ADIF log file in JTALERT and copy it in the log directory of JTALERT, overwriting the existing one. That’s all!
NEW: Enabled LotW and eQSL confirmations in RDA statistic
Corrected: Bug since 5.98 affecting users located in time zones where local time is -1 to -12 from UTC. Swisslog didn’t calculate correctly the time difference to UTC set by Windows and displayed a message box prompting user that “The Timedifference to UTC for the current QTH does not match the settings in Windows”. Swisslog detected Windows settings as positive number when should be negative.
Corrected: Band maps: code fully rewritten for better performance and stability. Thanks to this change some issues have been solved such as no spots after certain running time, lock ups or low performance.
Corrected: Tools | For experts only | Set DXCC in Callbook. Swisslog seemed frozen while executing this function.
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 12/10/2018
