No, I'm not looking for spots in cluster window limited to LOTW users only, but spots that went through the filters which are LOTW users highlighted/marked.

Hello,

I did some grahpical work during Xmas to make my feature requests for the cluster window visible.
I also proposed some changes in description (e.a. to avoid double denials in one description as they are mostly felt as brain crackers)

in Log4OM settings / TAB [Cat & Cluster]
- Added "Country not confirmed"
- Added "Band/Mode not confirmed"
- Added "User specified callsigns" (This was on the list already if I understood it correctly)

I just used the colors Red (Alarm), Orange (Alert) and Green (Ok) but they are configurable as they are now allready.

in Cluster window (Extended View]
- Added collum "LOTW User"

Cluster window examples gives all (I think) possible combinations available for the specific setting of the "highlight spot".

(I hope I didn't make a mistake in the last 2 examples)

I think this will help the DXCC/Slot hunter who likes both QSL and LOTW confirmation.
At least he will be warned/alerted if applicable.

Evert,
I will add this to the Mantis list

A couple of points

I like the title 'Need LOTW' etc

Perhaps we could also remove the / in the options and change it to

'Band or mode not worked'

'Band or mode not confirmed'

'Country, Band or Mode Confirmed'

I believe these changes make it more understandable?

Sure it does!
Thanks for the additional suggestions.

Looking forward

On the same theme, a facility to highlight LOTW users (as opposed to the current tick box that only shows LOTW cluster stations) would be useful and should be fairly easy.

Its already there and detailed in the user guide!

Don't click the LOTW users box in the cluster filters

In the options select 'Show LOTW user'

Now the LOTW users will be highlighted by the time in red

Hi Terry

Showing the spot time in red appears on my laptop with Log4OM ver 1.24 regardless of that setting... I haven't access to my desktop PC at the moment, but I'll check that too.

Thanks for pointing out the setting, it wasn't obvious.
