Same Award Entries For Different DXCC Entities

Post by OE6CLD » 24 Apr 2014, 21:37

Hi all,

Apparently it is not possible to create three award entries (all the same) for different DXCC entities.

For the WAJA award I wanted a nice solution. Because both Ogasawara and Minami Torishima count for 10-Tokyio I created 3 entries in the .csv file:

Code: Select all

10;Tokyo (JA1+JD1);Kanto District;;;;339;;
10;Tokyo (JA1+JD1);Kanto District;;;;177;;
10;Tokyo (JA1+JD1);Kanto District;;;;192;;
I thought it would be nice to have only one valid entry in the drop down when assigning this to JD1.

After checking the .xml fie a saw that only the last entry was created (in this case for country 192. I next created three entries manually like this:

Code: Select all

	<QsoActivation>
      <ActivationCode>10</ActivationCode>
      <ActivationProgramCode>WAJA</ActivationProgramCode>
      <CustomAward>true</CustomAward>
      <ActivationCodeDescription>Tokyo (JA1+JD1)</ActivationCodeDescription>
      <ValidFrom>0001-01-01T00:00:00</ValidFrom>
      <ValidTo>9999-12-31T23:59:59.9999999</ValidTo>
      <Valid>true</Valid>
      <ActivationNote />
      <ActivationScore>0</ActivationScore>
      <ActivationBonusScore>0</ActivationBonusScore>
      <ActivationCodeSubGroup />
      <ActivationCodeGroup>Kanto District</ActivationCodeGroup>
      <Dxcc>177</Dxcc>
      <ActivatorCalls />
      <GridSquares />
    </QsoActivation>
    <QsoActivation>
      <ActivationCode>10</ActivationCode>
      <ActivationProgramCode>WAJA</ActivationProgramCode>
      <CustomAward>true</CustomAward>
      <ActivationCodeDescription>Tokyo (JA1+JD1)</ActivationCodeDescription>
      <ValidFrom>0001-01-01T00:00:00</ValidFrom>
      <ValidTo>9999-12-31T23:59:59.9999999</ValidTo>
      <Valid>true</Valid>
      <ActivationNote />
      <ActivationScore>0</ActivationScore>
      <ActivationBonusScore>0</ActivationBonusScore>
      <ActivationCodeSubGroup />
      <ActivationCodeGroup>Kanto District</ActivationCodeGroup>
      <Dxcc>192</Dxcc>
      <ActivatorCalls />
      <GridSquares />
    </QsoActivation>
    <QsoActivation>
      <ActivationCode>10</ActivationCode>
      <ActivationProgramCode>WAJA</ActivationProgramCode>
      <CustomAward>true</CustomAward>
      <ActivationCodeDescription>Tokyo (JA1+JD1)</ActivationCodeDescription>
      <ValidFrom>0001-01-01T00:00:00</ValidFrom>
      <ValidTo>9999-12-31T23:59:59.9999999</ValidTo>
      <Valid>true</Valid>
      <ActivationNote />
      <ActivationScore>0</ActivationScore>
      <ActivationBonusScore>0</ActivationBonusScore>
      <ActivationCodeSubGroup />
      <ActivationCodeGroup>Kanto District</ActivationCodeGroup>
      <Dxcc>339</Dxcc>
      <ActivatorCalls />
      <GridSquares />
    </QsoActivation>
Now I had no entry 10-Tokyo in the drop down.

I decided to remove the DXCC ID for every entry and just allow the same list for JA, JD1o and JD1m.

Any way to make this more elegant?

Yes, that's a tough one and you did it correctly. At least that's my opinion.

Duplicate activation references are rejected you need to find a way to make each reference unique

This is how I arranged the same award

I never thought that a reference could have 3 different DXCC...
It is possible/required to have 3 references with same code from 3 different DXCC or one is valid for the whole reference?

I'm explaining...
Reference+DXCC1 and Referece+DXCC2 are 2 different references that awards 2 points instead of 1, or having one or another it's equal?

If you set all DXCC at award level and leave reference with DXCC = 0 it should be shown in all countries defined at reference award level...

hope i'm clear enough :)
