Is WAS fully supported?

Post by va3vf » 28 Jun 2020, 17:13

If yes, is there any configuration required? I don't see anything.

Thanks,

Have you checked in awards statistics?

Yes, it's empty, like I have never confirmed a single State.

The other two awards I follow are DXCC and WAZ, and those work perfectly.

Thanks and 73.

Well as you can see it works for me so either your logbook does not have the states recorded or you need to rescan the award references in the 'Maintenance' tab of the award

I did a re-scan many times before, but I see now that I may not have waited long enough for it to complete.

It now shows 4 States confirmed on most bands, and 12 on one band, for a total of 25.

I actually have 248, as per ARRL LoTW.

Not a big problem, it can stay this way.

Thanks and 73.

You can't have 248 states, DXCC entities (countries) maybe but not states

If it's the 5 band award then that is different to the standard WAS so you will need to modify the WAS award or ask Claus our award manager to do it for you

However it also sounds like you have a database issue, try this

1. Export an ADIF file of your complete logbook
2. Create a new database
3. Import the ADIF file into the new database but ensure that you select option 1 'Apply quality check corrections'
4. Do another rescan references for the award

I'm pretty sure I tried that, and more. I don't give up easily. LOL

As I said, not a biggie, I can easily remember the State and bands still needed. :)

I'll try again later, but right now, I'm more interested in learning about the Win4 Suite discussed in the other thread.

Thank you very much for your help.
