QSL Card Label Print Request

Post by AE4RM » 14 Nov 2016, 00:13

I talk to many of the same people month after month, esp with CW sprints and other events with orgs like SKCC. I also import many of these QSOs from the SKCC logger. When I go to print labels, I do not want to send a QSL card to someone I worked (and sent) a QSL card to last month (and the month before, and the month before that).

I'd like to see a list of QSO/QSL Cards sent as an information field when choosing to print the labels. Right now its a manual process to do that. Of course, I may be missing something and maybe someone will enlighten me.

Thanks for taking this into consideration

Hello Roger,
One solution could be during the qso you choose the option "Ignore or invalid" for "send QSO Option in F5.
A better approach would be to have in configuration a way that we can choose to not send qsl for contacts with same station in same band and mode. But this requires the accordance of Daniele.
I enclose a picture from my old Swisslog I have used some years ago with this option.

Once every couple of weeks, in the QSO Manager, I bulk edit my recent QSO's and mark all the QSO's that I don't want to send another card to as I-ignore

Then when I next print labels I use the search parameters to filter as follows

QSL sent status - Not equal to I-ignore
QSL sent status - Not equal to Y-Yes

The remainder then require labels
