Paula,

There is a robust "Find" feature in the Alarms which allows you to find call signs directly or by using wildcards and other logical entries.

I've used it many times for different reasons.  My alarms are in 070 member order which I prefer, since that way I can easily find a recently worked member using the received 070# and then uncheck the alarm box for that call.

I'm an HRD throwback, still using the old 5.24 version, the last released by Simon.  Works great for me on Windows 10, though. YMMV.

I have the file loaded and on the surface in appears good.
All members are there and all alarms are on. I see no colours
on the LONP entries and don't know how to add them.
I have yet to catch an active station to see if it actually works.
It is basically the same list I have and I just turn the alarm off
to signify that I have worked that station.

Not sure if you found how to sort the alarms but this might help.
open DM7800
open TOOLS/ALARMS
This is same panel you use to import Rick's list
Click on the word Title at the top of the list of callsigns.
The list should sort in ascending/descending order

Nice surprise

Jerry N9AVY
 

Always pays to work new calls or ones you don't recognize.  Today on 20m , I worked W2  who had a 599 signal with beam pointed East.  Figured he was just another W2 in NY/NJ.    Was I wrong !!!   Turns out he was in Idaho !  Unfortunately I had already worked DN13 or it would have been a new Grid.

Sometimes working a call you don't recognize will yield a PODXS # not worked and not advertised.  This has been a good day for propagation here in Northern IL and I managed to work J69DS in St. Lucia.  Had a nice QSO with him since we worked back in 2008.  Told him about my first QSO with St. Lucia way back when St. Lucia had a VP2 prefix.  Think he was surprised to have a QSO that wasn't the usual type and more like a ragchew.  

Am having fun on 20m  PSK31 today. Hope tomorrow is more of same.

Re: HRD-DM780 Member and LONP Member Alarm Uploads

Rick - N7WE
 

Paula -
The alarms are in 070 # ascending order.  I guess it was originally set up that way because it was linked to and derived from the membership list.  It used to automatically update. But the order is still handy as you can just add new members at the end of the list as they occur.  It is an XLM file and beyond my capabilities to sort the order of the list.  Maybe someone else can. 

But you are right, too few on the waterfall makes it hard to find a known member.  I did see Jerry N9AVY last night and he didn't trigger the alarm on the Win 10 machine.  Thank goodness the old Win 7 computer is still semi-functional and the new alarm def file worked FB on it.  Jerry popped up with a green background (LONP member). 

Not sure what is going on with my setup, but I'm sure it relates to my SuperSweeper crashing DM780 when I click on a call.

Thank you, Paula.

Just like you, we do these things for the love of the hobby!

And just like everyone else, we are hoping that improved propagation will result in many, many members and PSK fans returning to the bands.

It gets lonesome some times!

It is great to see enthusiasm mounting to grab that 365/366 Endorsement.

Geary, KE5IRK has completed his 366 on July 18. Congrats, Geary!!


Dave, KB3RAN now needs only August 23 to complete his 366 Award level. Look for him during his APE activity from West Quoddy Head Lighthouse State Park, ME.



Also needing only one date to complete the 366 Award are Ruud, PA3EEG needing only August 2 and Alan, KA5VZG needing only August 6.


Larry, WA7HDZ needs only 3 August dates to complete his 366 award.



Good job Bob, KK6KMU, who picked off 15 needed dates in July. A special note of encouragement to Bob, K4VBM who, although he needs over 200 dates, has been valiantly picking up every day in July. Keep it up, Bob. You’ll get there.


In the table below, I have shown August and September need dates for those members needing fewer than 60 days total. These are the folks really getting close. Be sure to look for them.


[cid:attach_0_1696E5DFEA4C78E1_29101@groups.io]



I will publish this table periodically as the time approaches. Best of luck and good Propagation to boot!
Please verify your own need dates as I may have missed some.


To see what dates you need, upload your full log and check the "Online Endorsement Checker". In the "In Progress" section, click on "Target" for the 360 category and a list of needed dates will show. If you have a problem seeing that, please just let me know.



A helpful hint from Alan, KA5VZG is to check each day around 2345Z and hang around until after 0000Z to see if you can pick up two days. Be sure to call CQ 365 to make your needs known.


The new 365 Chat that KB3RAN set up should be a big help in coordinating.
