Hello, cqrlog team,
there is this web application that organizes stuff for our club station, in particular, collects logs.
Individual OPs may use whatever logging software they prefer, so naturally, I use cqrlog. I want to export ADIF out of cqrlog and import into that web application. Doing so, I have a problem.
The programmer of that web application has read the ADIF spec and found that the QSL_SENT field should contain the letter "R" for "Requested", for people that want a paper QSL from our club station. (In case it matters, that programmer, that's also me. But I think it doesn't.)
So I enter "R" in this field in all pertinent QSOs in cqrlog. Which is not offered in the drop down list, but can still be entered into the field all right. The "R" becomes visible in the QSO list, and it also is listed duly when I execute an SQL statement such as
select qsl_s from view_cqrlog_main_by_qsodate;
However, when I export this to an ADIF file to contribute to our club station effort, the export process out of cqrlog changes the value from "R" to "Y". Incidently, even the automatic backup file has the same problem. So should I ever need to make use of the backup file, my original "R" values would be lost. (Should I ever decide to make use of both "R" and "Y" in the way suggested by the ADIF spec, utter chaos will ensue.)
This is about cqrlog version 2.3.0 as available for the Debian Stretch Linux distribution.
