Hello FM,

When I want to look for my DXCC status the 4m band is not showing, it's showing in the grids and in my settings it's checked.

How can I see my DXCC status on 4m ?

Thanks for reply.

I had the same problem and edited awards.xml , now i can select the 4M band in the DXCC award status.
But LOG4OM is acting strange. i tried to add the 4meter band to all award sections in the "awards.xml" file , but then things got broken and i was not able to select anything. Strange is also the 70cm band is not declared anywhere in the "award.xml" file , however it is showing up in the DXCC MIXED status and other MIXED awards, but i was not able to get the 4 meter band show up there.

What i did is only add the 4meter award definition to "awards.xml" at the top of the file, starting at line number 183 i added:

Code: Select all

<Award>
    <AwardCode>DXCC_4M</AwardCode>
    <Band>4m</Band>
    <AwardSearchParameters>
      <QueryParameter>
        <ParamOperator>=</ParamOperator>
        <ParamValue>4m</ParamValue>
        <ParamName>BandParam</ParamName>
        <TableColumn>band</TableColumn>
        <Query />
      </QueryParameter>
    </AwardSearchParameters>
    <AwardSponsor>ARRL</AwardSponsor>
    <AwardName>DXCC 4m</AwardName>
    <AutonomousAward>false</AutonomousAward>
    <AdifValue>DXCC_BAND</AdifValue>
    <AwardAlias>DXCC-4</AwardAlias>
  </Award>
That is between 6 meter en 2 meter award section, and now i can select the 4 meter band from the DXCC status dropdown menu.

If you try this , please make a copy of your "awards.xml" file first, so you can always go back to the original version.

You just found a bug and it must have been like this for ages!

I will get Lele to fix it for the next maintenance release

Correct, 60m is not valid for DXCC.
