Checked my log and don't have either of you on 30m so I'll have a look around 0000 UTC tonight.  Charles may be too close and Paula too far, but we can sure try.  May the Propagation Genies smile on us!

Yeah - I called for 15 minutes but saw no activity of any kind there. I was just hoping, since there was so much FT8 on 10.136 that maybe I could get some PSK action too. Oh well, I will keep trying another day!

Stan -

Yes, ARRL sells a printed copy of the DXCC list for $5.95. But you can download a text file version of the entire entities list (current and deleted) at

http://www.arrl.org/files/file/DXCC/2019_Current_Deleted(2).txt

The entity codes are in farthest right column. Since it's a rigidly-formatted text file, you might be able to import it into some programs.

And glad to see that Rick WS8G was able to make it work.

I think Steve has the right idea.

Edit your log to add the DXCC Number (Entity Code) in the DXCC block.

Canada  1
Dominican Republic  72
Cuba  70
Venezuela  148
Columbia  116

These Entity Codes are available thru ARRL for $5.95. Possibly other places?

I am looking for a way to automatically populate this block. If anyone knows how, I would appreciate your post.

The checker wants DXCC, not DXCCPREFIX. DXCC is a one, two, or three digit integer that represents uniquely the DXCC entity. Canada is 1, and US is 291.

I don't know FLDIGI so I don't know how it gets that info to put into the ADIF, but that's what you are looking for.

Re: St. Pat's Logs Due
imrisk@... 10:43am  #6143
Im having trouble with my international contacts in the St Patty’s contest.  They are all showing up as an error.

The log shows ?? for DXCCPREFIX for each of them.  I have tried several ways to log the countries in the DXCC ADIF column.  I don’t see any column in the ADIF which lists K for the US states… Maybe the logger is generating them.  I don’t see an available column for DXCCPREFIX in FLDIGI.

My countries are Canada, Dom Republic, Cuba, Columbia, and Venezuela.  I’ve tried country abbreviations (CA, DM, CU, CO, VE) in the country ADIF field and VO, HI, CO, HK, and YV in the DXCC column.

I’m sure I am doing something dumb.

Software: FLDIGI.

Any help appreciated.

I use ACLog by N3FJP and it automatically populates those fields.  Think most programs do that as well.   Think with FLIDIGI that may have been an oversight.

Hi Rick,

I don't know FLDigi that well. but have not had any problems uploading to David's scorer.

Here's what  do, Bring up FLDig, go to, at the top left, click on 'Logbook, => ADIF => click
on 'Export'. A new window with pop up. On the left side all your log data. Click off all the
ST. Pat's contacts, 0n the left side of the window is the info you want contained in the ADIF
 be sure and check the State, province and country and other info you want. then clickclick 'OK'.
Another window will pop up and you can save it within FLDigi. I prefer to go to a Flash drive, and 
save my file there.

One of these days, I will hook my computer to my radio, and bypass all this.

Hope this helps,
