log4om2 IOTA qsl entry

Post by G3RTU » 30 Jul 2020, 07:00

Hi All,

Updating log entries for IOTA as yet not linked to clublog.

Pardon me as I still maintain my original electronic log and have
the habit of exporting updates in as an adi file to update log4om.
Previously used log4om (V1) which seem to flag qsl's cfm in the awards
statistics for the older prog.

Updated to log4om2, which I like, and imported my full adif but had to
do some work manually for DXCC cfm and granted. Now working on
IOTA however noted all iota WKD are flagged however have to go into
qso manage to manage and save even though the Sent or Received in
the right hand side box has correctly entered from my transferred adif
before W is changed to V, don't fancy doing all the hundreds I have.
Did try another new database and that worked but lost other awards
which I chase DDFM etc so question short of using clublog and entering
that adif what options do I have in the IOTA award file.
Regards, Keith G3RTU

No! IOTA do not verify/confirm Qso's that is why they show as just worked

However if you uncheck the box to the left of the IOTA awards grid, I think it's called strict something the display then shows those Qso's that have been confirmed and verified by other confirmation methods like LOTW

Hello all,
Not showing in the award view of the IOTA's confirmed by LoTW or QSL is also my observation, and in my opinion this was introduced since the V2.8. Before that time it was all right. The statistics shows the correct quantity in confirmed QSO's, also (of course) the information on the IOTA-website.

Have any of you downloaded and merged your IOTA files?

Hello Terry,
Yes, I did and all the validated and granted IOTA's are shown.But I supposed it must be possible to see the (yellow) IOTA's which are confirmed by Card and/or Lotw, so outside the award view. I am sure I saw this survey, but cannot find it any more now. And I need this survey to decide which IOTA-qso's must have a follow-up again.

See the reference 1 and 2 columns which you can allocated an award ref to in the program config and rename in the field edit window.

See user guide

So I did from the beginning. Reference 1 is dedicated to IOTA and Reference 2 to WWFF. But since V2.8 I cannot see the confirmed QSO's in the Award view anymore. Also is since V2.8 the column Reference 2 in the logbook empty on the start of the programm. After logging a QSO all references are shown again. Something happened in that release, see the other reported and unsolved problems about the WWFF tables.
That is a pity, because all the new functionality is excellent. Am very glad to be a (new) and gratefull Log4OM user.
