3G1D Bouvet?

Post by w9mdb » 27 Oct 2018, 21:08

3G1D is showing Bouvet Island for DXCC but is really in Chile.
Where is this asumption made?
This happened to two of us...one guy has no external lookup source and I have them all turned on.

I have searched for the answer but still cannot find it so be patient and wait for Lele.

However this is a contest station and you could add it to the UCL (User call list) which can be found in the Log4OM settings drop down menu and it will then be correctly identified in the future.

UCL is a great addition allowing users to add the call signs that dont conform to convention and are not listed in the Clublog or log4OM SCL files.

Dont forget to restart Log4OM after adding user calls

Same here. I knew it was not Bouvet but caught my attention. As Terry said, I just made a manual edit.

It's an error with the country file not correctly counter-fixed by program code (i'm updating now)

[HOTFIX]

- Open country.xml file in program settings
- Find "Bouvet" xml tag
- Change tag PREFIXLIST from:
<PrefixList>^3Y.*|^3G9*</PrefixList>
to
<PrefixList>^3Y.*|^3G9.*</PrefixList>

The "dot" was missing and produced unexpected results.

Unfortunately Log4OM still point to Chuck K7PT for country updates, so i'm not able to hotfix that yet.
New release will point to Log4OM website and all those issues will be addressed automatically.

[TECH MODE ON]
- edit logomui.exe.config file with an xml editor in main log4om path (where executable resides)
- Find section "DownloadCountries"
- replace the value with: https://www.log4om.com/log4om/resources/country.xml
[TECH MODE OFF]
