xmlog666.zip - This .zip file contains the current version of XMLog, version 6.66
- Version 6.56 includes a change to the QRZ.COM XML support - "Can't connect" messages were being displayed because the address of the server was changed.
- Version 6.65 includes changes to support the new ADIF scheme that uses a combination of MODE and SUBMODE fields to describe the QSO mode. Unfortunately TQSL (the program used to "sign" ADIF files prior to uploading them to LoTW) does not yet support this new scheme and results in error messages about illegal modes like PSK. To handle this problem until a new version of TQSL is available you can use a feature of the current TQSL version to map unrecognized modes to acceptable values.
2. From the "File" menu select "Display or Modify Preferences..." and then select the "ADIF Modes" tab.
3. Click the "Add..." button.
4. In the "Add ADIF Mode" window enter the unrecognized ADIF mode to be mapped (PSK).
5. Select the mode to map to (PSK31) from the "Resulting TQSL Mode:" drop down menu.
6. Click OK
7. You can now sign the ADIF file and upload the TQ8 file to LoTW.
Any current test version of XMLog will be available at: www.xmlog.com/beta
XMLog-LOTW.rtf - This file is a clip from the XMLog help file that describes the LoTW features added in XMLog version 6.00.
WAVES.ZIP - This .zip file contains the XMLog voice alert files.
WAVES.ZIP is required if you want to use the voice alert feature for PacketCluster spots. After you install XMLog create a folder named "Voice" in your XMLog install folder and extract the files from WAVES.ZIP into this folder. See the help file section on PacketCluster Alerts for more information.
There is no separate manual for XMLog but the help file is available online at www.xmlog.com/help
