[SD-User] WAE: QTC handling in SD V9.89
Wed, 5 Jun 2002 08:28:04 +0200
Hello Paul, Hello mailing list,
Thanks for the introduction of the WAE QTC recording into SD.
SD - QTCs in WAE (DARC - Worked All Europe).
Reception and logging of QTCs by EU stations is
supported. The QTC command brings up a window for
recording QTCs. They can be edited before being
logged to NAME.QTC where NAME is the name of your
.ALL contest log.
That was what I missed since long time ago, and puts me in the situation to
forget an other well known contest logger for all single operator
activities! Because the other one "Eats up" some QTC's every year... ;-)
Only two small adaptions are missing to fulfill the requirements of the WAE
Every received QTC-Series needs to be flagged by band information (where
each series has been received), and the time of receiving the series.
This becomes difficult to reproduce it, if you contact a DX station
several times to complete the maximum of 10 QTC during the contest. Can
you include the actual band and time when ever you recording a
QTC-Serial identifier (i.e. 103/7) by program? That will be a real
differentiation to the contest logger mentioned above!
Can you modify the WAE.CTY in a way, that call areas of BRAZIL are
handled as separate multipliers too, since the new rules of WAE
indicating the call sing areas of W, VE, VK, ZL, ZS, JA, PY and UA8/9/0
as separate multipliers? (As it was until several years ago)
Just for information of the mailing list members
WAE rules are modified in several items, the most important are:
that SINGLE OP stations have NOT to OBSERVE the 10-minutes-QSY-rule
the introduction of the class SINGLE OP/ LOW POWER (max. 100 W).
The complete list of rule changes can you find under
See you (or listening to your performance by recording QTC's) in the WAE
