JTDX files and 80m

Post by G3ZSS » 14 Mar 2019, 14:50

I currently use JTDX for FT8 QSOs, and use ADIF File Polling to import QSOs into Log4OM. I have noticed that when it imports QSOs on 80m then it does not attach any country to the callsign. I have to manually edit each 80m QSO to add the country.

If I look at the ADIF file then I cannot see any issue as it does not include a country field;

<call:6>PD1DTH <gridsquare:4>JO32 <mode:3>FT8 <rst_sent:3>-09 <rst_rcvd:3>-12 <qso_date:8>20190314 <time_on:6>143602 <qso_date_off:8>20190314 <time_off:6>143644 <band:3>40m <freq:8>7.076500 <station_callsign:5>G3ZSS <my_gridsquare:6>IO90nu <eor>
<call:5>G6TEL <gridsquare:4>IO90 <mode:3>FT8 <rst_sent:3>-03 <rst_rcvd:3>+07 <qso_date:8>20190314 <time_on:6>143932 <qso_date_off:8>20190314 <time_off:6>144014 <band:3>80m <freq:8>3.575500 <station_callsign:5>G3ZSS <my_gridsquare:6>IO90nu <eor>

This only happens when I am working 80m FT8, and not on any other bands.

Peter,
Do any of the qso's in the JTDX ADIF contain a country?

Is there a reason you don't use JTALERT in conjunction with JTDX which would log correctly direct to Log4OM?

I have just looked at a WSJT-X ADIF file and it also does not contain Country data. Basically the ADIF files produced by JTDX and WSJT-X are the same file structure. I've not tried JTALERT as I did not feel it gives me any benefits, and I have enough applications running on my desktop already!. The ADIF Polling error only occurs with 80m QSO imports. 73 Peter

Ok Peter

I suspect that there is a small bug with the import if a field is missing specifically for 80 contacts I will ask Lele to check
