Support for International Grid Chase

I would like the ability to reset the worked-before status for all grid locations on a monthly basis.

With this change the new coloring of the CQ's in WSJT-X will work great to make it easier to pounce on the grids that you need.

Thanks for a great program!

Hi Kirk!

World is full off different contests and it is not possible to make programs like Swiss knife supporting every issue.

I suggest either:

- Make new log for every month. You can later combine all month logs to one global log with adif export/import.
or
- use Window/qsl list/file/group edit and reset "Locator" to be empty on whole log once a month.

Be warned: Do backups first. Group edit is very powerful tool without "ooops"-button.

The ARRL International Grid

The ARRL International Grid Chase https://igc.arrl.org/ is not like other contests in that this one lasts an entire year, not just one or two days.

However, your first suggestion should work. It will take a bit of work recombining the logs at the end.

I don't think the second suggestion of resetting the "Locator" to empty for the whole log is wise as I will lose the entire data set of locations.

I simply want to reset the Locator worked Before status on a monthly basis for the WSJT-X grid coloring. But I understand this is not possible with the current code.

Hi!
>I simply want to reset the Locator worked Before status on a monthly basis for the WSJT-X grid coloring. But I understand this is not possible with the current code.

Not with current code, but mysql is very flexible and all we need is to add "and date > xxxx.xx.xx" to locWB4 seeking mysql command where xxxx would be the date of the history limit.

But that multiples things as one command is used for coloring, other for grid map routines. And of course it have to work with both.

And so the code grows....
But maybe. On some cold and windy winter day...

Maybe we should open a wishlist, or at least I should write them down so that I remember them when winter comes.

Hi!

Would filter give any help?

Window/Qso list/filter

Set "Locator" to have only: % include
Set "Sort By" to have: Gridsquare
Set Date "from" and "to" to have desired values.
Save filter for next use
OK

From "QSO list" you see locators sorted in order.

Does this mean that the coloring done in the WSJT-X Monitor is based on the FIltered QSO List, not the entire database?

Hi!

% is mysql substitute character for "any character"

Monitor coloring does not use filter. It is always against full log, not filtered result.

How can I set up a filter to show me only blank location field? \0 doesn't work.

At least by using SQL console. Enter line to upper part of console and press green arrow (top, left) to execute it.

select qsodate,time_on,callsign,band from cqrlog_main where loc =""

For items that you can add to above list (comma separated) see column names with:

show columns from cqrlog_main

OK Thanks.

OK Thanks.
That seems to work. That cannot be applied as a custom filter?

FYI In the SQL console window when I click the help button, it says it couldn't find the file "/usr/share/cqrlog/help/h27.html"

I did a search and found the file in /share/cqrlog/help/h27html (No /usr)

HI!

Did not check the source but it seems that it does not count empty string "" when entered to edit box.
At the moment I do not know any trick that would work. Perhaps there could be one...maybe someone else knows.

There should not be a folder named /share under root directory.
Did you install from package or from tar file?

If there is nothing else (other folders) under /share than cqrlog you should move whole share under the /usr.
It has been created by fault installation, I think.
In case there are also other folders under /share than cqrlog then do not touch it. Otherwise:
sudo mv /share /usr
should make it as /usr/share/cqrlog as expected

I fixed my installation. I had remnants of a previous installation in the wrong places. I removed it all, and then reinstalled from your most recent version using the package. That seemed to work best.

The help file now comes up fine.
