Awards?

Post by N5INP » 28 Apr 2014, 23:15

Ok I give up. I'm an idiot. I've looked at the manual and searched this forum (I tried to search for "award" but the system told me it was too common a word so I couldn't perform the search).

What in the heck are all these "awards" categories I'm seeing all over the place here, and where do I learn about them, how are they verified, etc.?

:D
Well, awards (other than the usual ones we already have onboard) is a new feature that permit logging the otherwise called "references" or "activations".
Custom awards can be downloaded here, are included in the release 1.17 and can be user-created as well.

With this part of code you can keep trace of activations and awards (lighthouses, parks, lakes, castles, bunkers, islands, provinces and everything else supported in the award list we provided or created by you. If you want to track the "worked all chemical WC's in Canada" and you have a list of references you can create a custom award and share it with the community, for users that want to track this specific award.

If you want more information about awards and some background I woul recommend to go to http://www.dxawards.com/bkgnd.htm. The information provided may answer many questions about awards hunting.

The awards feature integrated in Log4OM makes it much easier to track a specific award. There is no need to apply all user awards definition files already provided, just take the ones you want to track. Additionally you will need the rules of this specific awards you want to track. For some of the awards there are additional record sheets, record books, Excel sheets, etc. available.

An upcoming version of Log4OM will provide links for some of the awards to easiliy find more information about this specific award. At the moment just search for the award name in e.g. Google, most probably you will find the website of the sponsor.
