Watch external ADIF file - howto use ?

Post by dk3dua » 12 Sep 2017, 18:46

Hello,

I want to use this feature, but the option to select the file is grey ? I use Win 8.1 and start as admin, Communicator started also without any error as far as I can see.

I can only watch and import a single ADIF file, not several files ?
Is there a way to import custom fields or in general a way to define which ADIF filed in external Log goes to which field in Log4OM database ? Some external tools create ADIF with informations in comment field (Membership numbers and so on).

What are you trying to achieve?

You need to stop the communicator for the inbound and outbound connections to be highlighted, this is covered in the user guide and our YouTube tutorials

Thanks for your help, yes it works perfect now for one file.

I wrote a small Perl script to aggregate all different ADIF files from Contest Logger, SKCC and FISTS club log tools etc. into one file
