DXCC Award help

Post by N5ZY » 03 Sep 2018, 21:21

I downloaded the ADIF of all my DXCC Award credits, used an ADIF to Excel converter and then I compared each to Log4OM. For each one I found in Log4OM that did not reflect the award I updated the QSO Awards tab with the proper DXCC credit. Surprisingly now in Statistics and Awards the QSO is merely “Confirmed” not the “Credit Granted” I expected. :x

How does one manually change the DXCC Status to “Credit Granted”? I don’t see a field in Archive Manager for this..


ARRL evidently is not going to update my LoTW account (LoTW account and DXCC award account are linked so I don't know why it's not confirming the previous QSOs). I suppose for JTAlertX this is good enough (it’s marked Confirmed at least).

Select each QSO>awards tab and you'll see award credited. Check the boxes that apply and save the QSO. You may have to restart Log4OM.

That's what I did to change them.. but they still only appear on the Statistics and Awards as 'Confirmed'.

Can you send me a adif file via my email address on QRZ a few, maybe 10, QSOs from your log that should be "credited"? I'll take a look at them. Thanks.

The issue that Marcus brings up is NOT a bug. The QSO Received status must be set to "V" (Validated) before it can be used for an award credit. Cards are "Validated" by a card checker or mailing them direct to the ARRL.

The user must set the QSO Received status to "Validated" in Log4OM.
