In his 3.3 release you can export selected records to an adif file. Highlight the records you want to upload which effectively is a batch upload from n3fjp program.

Re: Eqsl

Jerry N9AVY
 

Just got eact same answer from N3FJP  !!!!

So, I guess they'd rather see me upload 18,000+ QSO's every day than upload 20-40 QSO's daily ???   That seems strange.  Anyone have a real answer about this ?   Or are the Eqsl people suffering from CRS ???

Just sent an email off the N3FJP.  That answer about batch files seems like he's trying to avoid work.  If I upload my 18,000 +  ADIF file every day this would probably cause Eqsl bigger problems.  Let's see what I get back from N3FJP....

Re: Eqsl

David Westbrook
 

" It was more like upload by ADIF or go scratch."

Actually, the programmer in me absolutely agrees with that ... Everyone
(especially in the digi modes world!) should be using logging programs
(which then use standard mechanisms) to bulk upload & manage lotw/eqsl/etc.
It's much more robust and much more efficient for a win-win on both sides
of the transport. Moving lots of qso data around (for anything -- uploads,
qsls, contests, awards, etc) in custom/undefined/non-robust formats and/or
in manual ways is just not ideal -- that's exactly why ADIF was created.

"I tend to not want to fool with adding features to software and leave that
for guys like you who know what they're doing."

And that would be the author of your logger that isn't providing you with
enough functionality -- definitely let him know, or ask in a n3fjp group
how others deal with it ... From your description (i'm not familiar enough
with the logger itself), it sounds like the problem here isn't on the eqsl
side so much as it is on your logger side -- if the logger did the bulk
uploads for you (as opposed to manually uploading Q's individually), sounds
like you'd be all set.

Re: Eqsl

Joseph Miller <kj8o.ham@...>
 

I haven't noticed, but then I upload by ADIF.

Have been using AC Log for 4 years, and I create an ADIF file and do a
batch upload. Granted, you go thru a few extra steps to create and save the
ADIF file, but it sure beats uploading them one at a time. Also, if an
incoming eQSL doesn't match with one of your outgoing cards, it gets
highlighted in the inbox.

Not a huge fan of eQSL but I do like that you can track by prefix and
county.

Anyone noticed a change in Eqsl verification procedures ? Seems that
they now require you to go back and add time when you do verifications
manually. However, if you upload an ADIF file that won't happen. They are
worried (really ?) about people claiming cards they are not entitled to.

I usually just go back and verify those QSLs which come in via the web
site, but now I have that extra step of having to add the time before I can
verify the contact. This is a time waster for me and so I have chosen to
dump Eqsl.

If I upload an ADIF file, it will be my entire log because that is the way
my logging system works for me . I doubt that Eqsl wants to see me upload
18,000 + Q's every day ! My logging program is N3FJP and it only allows
the Q's to be uploaded one at a time to Eqsl whereas LoTW lets me upload
in batches from N3FJP. Daily, I upload about 30-40 Q's.

I have posted to my QRZ pages that I will not accept Eqsls any longer.
Only used Eqsl to verify contacts as a courtesy to others.

Re: [Ten-Ten List] End of Life for Callsign lookup software

Jeff Steinkamp
 

If you downloaded the windows installer, there was an error in the installer that did not put the library files in the proper folder. I have fixed that and loaded an update.

If you are a user of my Hamcall, Hamcall Search or FCC Lookup software, those program have reached end of life. They are being replaced with Calllookup. The new program is written entirely in Java making it suitable to run on Windows, Linux and Mac, whereas the others were windows based only.

You can download the program from http://www.n7yg.com/java.html

The windows download is an installer. The Linux download is a zip archive that can be extracted anywhere in your HOME tree. You might have to create a launch script if your machine is not setup to run the java realtime with files that have the .jar extension. If that is the case, launch it from a command line as java -jar calllookup.jar from the folder where it is installed.

For Mac users, I do not have an installer for Mac, but the same rules for Linux will basically apply to the Mac.

Currently the data source will be my callsign server, but future additions will have support for the subscription services at QRZ XML and HamQTH.

The program functions exactly the same as those that are being replaced. For the FCC Lookup users, you will no longer need to download the FCC data as the data on my server is updated on a weekly basis.

I've been letting David's WTW checker do all the brain work, too !  This whole WTW is giving me an Excedrin headache, hi !   Need lots on A's and N's, yet....

If you're not using David's WTW Checker, you should because it's less painful.

Ted,
I was under the same impression until I used David's  WTW checker program.
You are allowed to use the same station's suffix letter 9 times in totat
(once for each of the 9 sections  SA, AU, OC, etc.).  Go git um!!!

can one collect letters over and over from the same station? I thought it
was 1 contact per station for WTW. Guess I need to revisit the rules !

Re: Today on 20m

David Westbrook
 

These are the two key logic rules:
* A QSO can only be used once per WTW (entire award).
* A callsign can only be used once per Endorsement (SA, NA, AU, etc).

So yes, work stations multiple times!! A callsign can be used up to 9 times
(1 per endorsement) in some cases ... This is case if you see multiple
yellow (partial progress) cells for a given letter in the WTW checker ...
It's also why there's a "used-up callsigns" list on the WTW checker for
reference.

The checker handles all of that, so just work 'em all and it'll sort it
out :)
