The actual RX frequency is logged in HRD​Log (v5 build 2893) for me.  Maybe that is dependent upon having a CAT connection to my Icom 746Pro as I do, but the QSOs all show an actual frequency.

I was very happy to see I was assigned LONP #298! After PSKFest, I needed 4 more (I think) club contacts. I appreciate the help I got getting those last ones in the log.

I also am guessing that a LOT of people (or programs) log the QRG (dial
frequency), and not the actual trace frequency ....
. .. just took a quick look at the endorsement checker database. There's
600,000 20M PSK Q's in there ... and at least 170,000 of them have FREQ of
14.070
Fldigi logs the freq of the trace I'm listening to. When I lock a
split TX, it doesn't care about what I'm transmitting on, it's based on
what I'm RX-ing. The dial frequency just sets the base for the offset
to determine the RX freq of the trace.

Re: Split

 

May I ask why it matters how you log a split?

I've been working split for over 40 years when chasing dx. All that matters, even with LotW, is the band.

I think we're being too picky on this.

If you work someone on 20m, log it that way. What does your vfo say? log that.

I know of no award or organization that requires you to identify the split, as long as it isn't cross band, or cross mode.

If you're thing of split, I'd only recommend that for a large DXpedition. I operated the W1AW/9 event on PSK and , aside from 070 members, most PSK operators haven't a clue about anything other than setting the rig on one frequency and calling/answering.

Re: Split

David Westbrook
 

I would hope the digital/logging software would cover that for people ...
As far as the checker, the frequency doesn't matter for any award/endorsement -- just the band.. And split is irrelevant unless it's cross-band ...
There are four ADIF fields (http://www.adif.org/304/ADIF_304.htm)for band/freq:
     QSO Band
   in a split frequency QSO, the logging station's receiving band
      QSO frequency in Megahertz
   in a split frequency QSO, the logging station's receiving frequency in Megahertz

The checker just uses BAND,  and if not given, then tries to translate FREQ into a band.

I also am guessing that a LOT of people (or programs) log the QRG (dial frequency), and not the actual trace frequency ....
 . .. just took a quick look at the endorsement checker database.  There's 600,000 20M PSK Q's in there ... and at least 170,000 of them have FREQ of 14.070

~~~~~

Side/off-topic --- I enjoy the yearly MARS cross-band event ... fun to do voice contacts with RX on 18Mhz out-of-band and transmit on 40M ham band  (or whichever band combos they happen to pick).
