Valentine Sprint Log Uploader did not seem to pick up OM/YL data


Harry, N6TE
 

I uploaded the adif file of my sprint contest log and the report correctly indicated the number of qso's, st/pr, and dxcc but did not indicate om/yl points. I had put OM or YL in the "notes" section of the log. Should I have put it somewhere else?

I noticed the same thing

I put OM or YL after their name

but the checker didn't recognize the format

Question?

How does the checker know id your contact was either an OM or YL?

The uploader results didn't show the number of my YL's, however the three YL entries I uploaded showed YL in the data field, so I imagine they will get counted as long as YL shows up in your data.

Hey folks.

I'm looking into this, but I likely won't have a quick answer to what
the scoring is doing. What I can say right now is a few things:

1. The code is correctly identifying YL entries. Looking at K5SP's log
and the debug output from the code, I see that the 4 YL multipliers got
picked up with the other multipliers.

{'mults': {'dxcc': {'data': ['291', '1'], 'errors': []},
'state': ['TX',
'UT',
'IL',
'SC',
'ON',
'FL',
'NC',
'WV',
'AZ',
'MS',
'GA',
'CA',
'MI',
'NY',
'OH',
'WA',
'IN'],
--->> 'yl': 4},

2. The YL is picked up if it's put in any of the following fields in
descending order (and yes, I have seen it put in all of these fields):
app_n1mm_misctext
srx_string
srx
comment
notes
name
class
other
award

So the odds are very high that if you put the info in any of these
locations, it got picked up.

3. While the output is not displaying discrete information about a
contact's status (OM/YL), it is being recognized.


What I'm looking into is whether or not the actual scoring logic is
working as intended. I'll check some things and figure out if anything
is broken first, and look into more detailed output to represent this in
the displayed results once that's validated.

I had originally put YL in the "RST IN" area and changed it to the "Name" area and then it picked it up.  In the process of making the change I noticed my logger did not pick up a few States so I inserted them manually and uploaded again.  I gained a  State multiplier and the addition of the YL contacts made my score increase by 105.  Make sure your logger records the state/country.

Ok, good news, bad news.

The bad news is there is a bug in how the data is displayed. Fixing it is not
trivial and I don't currently have the time to devote to a large-scale update
to fix it. If I find some time, I'll do my best to clean it up.

The good news is it's a display bug in the individual report only; the actual
total is correct. Even though any information about the YL entries is not being
displayed properly, the value *IS* being collected and scoring properly, so the
contest results themselves are accurate and will be accurately displayed in the
end report.

For example, here are the current standings in the summary report:

There are folks here that refuse to share their settings and how they do things like this, and where they populate things in ACLog and with their spreadsheets. 
I'm not like that and always eager to share.
I use ACLog, and have labeled one of the "Other" fields as SRX and that's where I put a multiplier from 
a contest or in the case either YL or OM.
There may be other ways to do this but this is how I did it.
I uploaded my log earlier today and all went as it was supposed to.
