Re: Brush on Liquid Tape

Export both of your logs as ADIF files from your current logging program.

Then create a new log file in your logging program with a new name and import the two ADIF files into that new file. Then upload the new file to the 070 checker.

Because I use a separate machine and account for my QRP work, I uploaded that ADI file separately to the log checker.

 

I lost ALL my 365 day credits. Is there a way to merge the two logs so as to get credit for them?

 

Dave, this is more your expertise… I use DXLabs on the laptop for QRP work as well as using DXLabs on my main setup at the QTH. I do not generally merge the logs (Mainly because I do not know how in DXLab) and my LoTW setup is different due to the call sign difference. With that being said how do I keep my credit for home station work and QRP work if I upload 2 separate logs?

 

If you wish, email me off reflector and explain how I can do this please.

Re: A slightly technical question

Rick Harrington
 

Thanks to everyone who has chimed in.  It looks like that while this has been a nuisance, it's not uncommon. 

Since other software provides a workaround by shifting the center frequency of the waterfall, I started messing around with HRD to see what I could come up with.  Lo and behold there is a little green box in the toolbar that allows me to "Adjust the main channel so that it's on the center frequency".  So once I select the signal in the waterfall, I click the green box and it automatically centers it to 1500hz (or whatever).

Hopefully my output will be consistent if the software always sees the signal at 1500.  Thanks again!
