SWL call not supported by Log4OM2

Post by F1ABL » 06 Feb 2020, 14:56

Hello Team,

I received several QSLs from a SWL station via E-QSL, the call is R6M-48.

I cannot enter its callsign in Log4om2 because it does not accept the dash (-).

In QSL Manager I cannot return my E-QSL to him via Log4OM2 because it does not take the dash (-).

I would like to know how I should proceed to put its SWL R6M-48 code in Log4OM.

Is there a way to accept the dash sign (-) or i have a problem.

Please keep me informed of the next step to validate these E-QSL.

Hi Michel,

think each Hamradio logging software has only the possibility to log real callsigns and not these ones
which selfcreated with any special characters. I handle all incoming SWL eQSL cards only on the eQSL
page himself. For hams SWL cards not counting for anything so i don´t need to have them in my Hamradio
log. For incoming paper SWL cards i fill out directly by hand and send back via the bureau, i also not put
them into my log.

Maybe only my meaning ;) ;)

Thanks Jurgen for your answer,

Yes I can go through E-QSL directly.

In the old version I had no problem with the dash (-), I could enter the special codes or SWL manually and confirm them on E-QSL.

My solution was to write the call R6M-48 on my PC then I make a copy and I paste it in place of Callsign, then I can enter the QSO data manually.

For E-QSL manager I also copy and paste the callsign is taken into account with the dash (-) while I cannot do it with the keyboard.

The procedure is not conventional but it works while waiting for the next update of Log4OM2 to take this modification into account.
