What’s New in Win1010 Version 3.5d Released Oct. 18, 2015

Contest Program

The text on the ASCII Contest Log Screen has been updated. Use only the Cabrillo option for all logs except the Mobile and use the 'M' button for that. The Cabrillo log now has the callsign, contest name and the last two numbers of the Year. It can be edited if desired.

County Hunter

Added routine to check the County Hunter for dupes. This displays every every dupe grouped together in the County Hunter logging window. To remove this list, hit the REF key to redisplay the County Hunter database. There will be dupes in the County Hunter because you might work the station if he gets a new VP number, is a mobile, changes to a new county, worked on a digital mode plus other reasons. This routine is activated by hitting Control-U (upper or lower case). Under the County Hunter Utilities menu, added new option to run all three "Create Index" files (County, Prefix and DXCC) at one time with a single mouse click. The first two index files are fast, but the DXCC requires some user input.

 

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 3.5c Released July 30, 2014

The FTP/Web Page hosting company changed the folder layout and the paths in the Update Databases routine had to be updated.

 
What’s New in Win1010 Version 3.5b Released April 20, 2014

The FCC database files were moved from the LeHigh FTP server to the ten-ten.org server and the 'Update Database' routine in Win1010 was modified for the new path.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 3.5a Released January 25, 2014

Added support for the QRZ XML Database search from within Win1010. You have to have a paid subscription to use this feature. Price is $29.95 per year from QRZ.COM. The most important info is shown in a window with the option to click Alt-J to view a biography, if available, or Alt-S to view the entire QRZ buffer information. Enter your UserName and PassWord in the Options Menu under the "Paths" tab and click the 'Installed' box. The information is saved in the QRZXML.TXT file. When starting Win1010, click the QRZ button to log into the QRZ XML server and obtain a Session Key. Then after entering a call into the call field, click the QRZ button to access the QRZ XML info.

 

Contest Program

The ASCII Contest Log is now in the Cabrillo format. Make the log the same way as you did the ASCII log.

 

Daily Log

In the F8 routine to transfer 'new ones' from the Daily Log into the County Hunter, there was a bug in the transfer of a new country that used the popup country selection popup box in the case where a single prefix could be counted for more than one country. It was not using the correct DXCC number in the transfer.

What’s New in Win1010 Version 3.5 Released June 22, 2013


Added JT65 and JT9 to the list of Modes. Extended the capacity of the 070 and EPC databases to 30000 records.


Contest Program

The Default mode should be set-up before the contest starts. In case, it is forgotten and all the modes are wrong or a portion of them are wrong, a new routine was written and is activated by hitting ALT and 'G' key to edit all the modes at one time. The ALT-G combination will list all the available modes and the next popup will ask you which mode to change to. The next two popups will ask you the starting record number to change and the ending number. The contest file should be loaded to run this routine.


County Hunter County Hunter

Added option to make an ASCII file for emailing applications for most of the Award Applications. Updated the DXCC Award. Added ASCII output to the Mobile Award and fixed the 25 limit upgrade to the 100 level. Working with the DX Awards Manager Mike, N5MT, the CTY_AZ95.TXT file was updated and several of the popup boxes to choose the country for a prefix that covers more than one country.


Daily Log
Daily Log

In case a contest was exported to the Daily Log and had all the modes wrong, a new routine was written to change the modes and corresponding RST values of a range of records in the Daily Log. A backup of your default Daily Log should be made 'just in case'. This routine is activated by hitting the ALT and 'I' key. The 'I' is the 'eye' letter not the number one. The Daily Log does not have to be running to use this routine. After running the routine, if the Daily Log is running, you will need to hit the REF key to refresh the display with the changes. Added the mode in previous contacts to the Log Archive and County Hunter display in the small info windows when a call is entered into the Daily Log.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 3.4b Released October 24, 2012


Added the Win1010 User's 10X and VP number to the blue heading bar at the top of the Certificate Chaser, Contest, and Daiily Log programs as per an users request. This is for us that cannot remember numbers.


Certificate Chaser

Added a list of Club Calls and Trustees that was provided by Daryl, N5SCA. Daryl is going to maintain the list, so email Daryl with any additions or corrections. The list is displayed by clicking the new red 'Clubs' button. The 'Daily' screen was moved to get to the new 'Clubs' button and was not moved back. This was fixed and the date of the V3.4b was changed to October 25, 2012.


County Hunter

The red OM/XYL label was giving wrong info in some cases. The OM/XYL search routine for the CoHunter actually was using the same code as in the Daily Log OM/XYL routine. If the XYL was also in the Daily Log, then it worked as it should. Instead of searching the County Hunter file for a match, the Daily Log file was being searched. This was fixed. On all Award Applications in the ASCII format, the BAR number was added to the filename.


Daily Log

Fixed F8 Routine case where two entries in Daily Log were the same and a new Prefix. Both would be exported to the CoHunter. This would happen if you logged the station also for your club station. Added filter routine for ADIF output that was used for the ASCII output in Version 3.4a. Added routine to detect a 10X number that was being used in the Anniversary Contest. For 2012 the number is 50. It will change every year. After the ENTER key is hit after the 10X field, if it is an Anniversary number, then the black 10X label will turn red and will read 10X - ANV. Also a line wiil be added to the small Info windows to reflect an Anniversary number.

What’s New in Win1010 Version 3.4a Released October 6, 2011

Daily Log

As requested by a Win1010 user, an optional filter was added to the Daily Log Print Menu under item #2. If desired, the exported records can be filtered by a word in the MISC field. For Example, if your club works the same station that you worked and is entered into the Daily Log with the 'Worked by Club' in the MISC field, then you can filter by the word 'Club' and all records with 'Club' in the MIsc field will be skipped when creating the ASCII file. Case of the filter word does not matter. Fixed an issue that prevented a DX station without a 1010 number or not on 10 Meters from being filed.

Contest Program

The Demo 25 QSO limit has been removed for free use of the Contest Program during the 2011 1010 Sprint Contest.

What’s New in Win1010 Version 3.4 Released August 8, 2011

Added two SK Displays to the Database Utility Menu. One list sorted by 10X number and the other sorted by callsigns. In the 'Update Databases' routine, the Unzipper program used was not compatible with Windows 7 64 bit version. However, it was compatible with the 32 bit version. A newer 64 bit Win7 compatible version has been found and is now being used to unzip the databases and FCC files from the web page.

Certificate Chaser

A ramdom problem happened whenever the Certificate Chaser (CC) indicator in the County Hunter was updated to 'Y' for a new Certificate Chaser. On some computers and O/S, this could cause a runtime error #63. This was addressed by including an error handler routine that reports the error, but allows the program to continue without crashing. The routine to update the CC indicator also was by-passed. If the CC indicator is desired to be updated to a 'Y', then it can be manually edited in the County Hunter. The red button #10 Backup routine was modified to use the new Zipper program that is Windows 7 64 bit compatible. Added routine to find correct call in CoHunter for short calls. For Example: if KK4AA was entered into the CC, the CH was searched for KK4AA, but in a rare case it ran across KK4AAA first and used that info. Added a length checking routine to make sure both calls are same length. The font was changed to Arial on several labels, text boxes and buttons in the Certificate Chaser and ASCII import routine. The Arial font makes for a smoother display with less jagged stairsteps.

Contest Program

Some calls have two 10X numbers assigned. Maybe the first holder is SK and a vanity call also has a 10X number. In the past, if one call of such a pair were entered into the contest program, a popup box would list both 10X numbers and you could decide which 10X number to use. The call sign has just been added to the display. The SK call sign will appear in lower case. This should make it faster to decide. A big-gun contester said making the choice slowed down his operation and wanted the non-SK 10X number by default. An option was added to the "Contest Setup" tab under the Options Menu. Clicking this box will by-pass the popup window choice and enter the non-SK 10X number by default. This feature may be added later to the County Hunter and Daily Log, if requested. However, the callsign display has been added to the CH and DL. When exporting a contest log into the Daily Log, if the Springbok option is checked, a valid 10X number is required for the associated Springbok info to be transferred. Now, if there is no 10X number, then no blank Springbok info will be entered into the Daily Log. The routine that checks to make sure the county entered is in the state worked was modified not to prevent the QSO from being filed, but will be filed for editing later.

.

Daily Log

Fixed a problem that only happened with Windows 7. The 'Send-Key' function was used in the Auto-F4 routine to automatically file new Counties, 10X, VP, etc from the Daily Log into the County Hunter. A work-around was found and used to prevent the problem.

What’s New in Win1010 Version 3.3e Released February 2, 2011

Contest Program

Added support for the revised rules for the Mobile Contest. To activate the Mobile Contest Mode, click the 'Mobile Mode' box on the 'Contest Setup' tab of the Options Menu. This mode is saved in a config file and will still be activated everytime the Win1010 program is restarted until the Mobile Mode is unchecked and saved. Click the 'Mobile Help' button by the Mobile Contest box on the Options Menu. The 25 record demo limit in the Contest Program has been removed until April 3, 2011 to allow for free operation during the 2011 Winter Phone and 2011 Mobile Contests.

What’s New in Win1010 Version 3.3d Released November 19, 2010

Added 4 new countries with the PJ2, PJ4, PJ5 & PJ6 and PJ7 prefixes to the CTY_AZ95.TXT file. If a call is entered with the PJ5 or PJ7 prefix, a popup window will ask if you want the current new country name or the Deleted Country name. Normally, you would choose the current country name, unless you were entering data from an old log.

Certificate Chaser

Fixed a problem when the last station entered in the County Hunter matching the call entered into the CertChaser was a mobile. This caused a runtime error #63. This was fixed.

Daily Log

Fixed a problem when creating a Daily Log ADIF file: the 070 and EPC numbers were placed after the <EOR> flag. The field for the EPC number would only accept a 4 digit number. This was increased to 5.

What's New In Win1010 Version 3.3c Released April 25, 2010

Increased capacity of the EPC/070 numbers. Renamed PSK62 to PSK63. Renamed QPSK61 to PSK125. Added routine to alert user if a second instance of Win1010 is running. When Win1010 starts, it creates a file named 'Running.TXT' This file is erased during a normal Exit from Win1010. Added code to determine if the Windows O/S is Windows 7.

Certificate Chaser

Added to the MyList routine a new button "C" on the View Update Log menu. This displays only the changes made to the Chapter/Seal records. Also a text file is created named Update.txt and is in the MyList folder. This file can be loaded into a word processor and printed if desired.

Contest Program

Added support for the new Spirit of 76 Contest. To activate the Spirit of 76 mode, click that box on the Contest Setup tab of the Main Options Menu. Use ALT-M to change modes before entering the Call. Changing the log heading titles spacing was not working for the County column. These settings are under the Misc tab on the yellow 'Change Log Spacing" label and was fixed.

What's New In Win1010 Version 3.3b Released September 20, 2009

Added the web page ham search at BuckMaster.com. With a call in the Call Field, click on the red "BUC" button. If the BuckMaster CD is not being used, then the web page will popup with the info for the station in the Call field. This routine works in all modules. If no call is in the Call Field, then the BuckMaster web page is accessed. Likewise, if the QRZ CD is not being used, clicking the QRZ button will bring up the QRZ.COM Callsign search web page.

Download Databases

Added a button in the 'Download Databases' screen to display the Win1010DL web page. Also a button to send email to K4HAV. Completely revised FCC Database and Win1010 databases download routine. The old routine used the HTTP file transfer and if the file was in the Windows Cache, then the old file was used. In this routine, all the files are downloaded and then they are unzipped. The earlier version had the FCC path hard-coded so that only the C and D drives were useable for the FCC downloads. Now any path in the Options FCC Path can be used. Whatever is in the Options Path will be used. There is a 2 second wait added after each file that is unzipped to make sure it is finished before going to the next file. On the downloads, a routine called "StillExecuting" is used to make sure the download of that file is complete before proceeding to the next file. Before the Download Databases screen is displayed, the routine logs on to the HDS.NET FTP server and downloads the WebFiles.TXT file. This will take several seconds and the hourglass symbol will be displayed for the mouse cursor.

Contest Program

The red VOLUNTEER label was not being removed after filing the record. Fixed.

County Hunter

The red VOLUNTEER label was not being removed after filing the record. Fixed. Whenever making a 10X BAR Award Application, there is now an option not to make the printout, since if the ASCII file is submitted, there is no need for a printout unless you want a hard copy.

Certificate Chaser

Entering a call into the call field will bring up the Chapters for this station. Instead of clicking on a chapter, if you click on the blank space (of a short list), a Runtime Error #381 would be generated and the program crash. A trap was inserted to prevent this.

What's New In Win1010 Version 3.3a Released September 9, 2009

Changed all the display fonts from the Visual Basic default MS Sans Serif to Arial. The original fonts were bit-mapped fonts and it was read in a "Tips and Tricks" article that the Arial True Type font was much sharper and did not have the jagged stairstep edges when in large sizes.  The resulting text in the log screens is slightly larger and the Log Height setting may have to be changed to view the last added record. This is done by using the Control-I routine. You may have to lower the default setting by one. Added to the "Update Databases" info display a routine that displays the total memory in the computer, the total available memory and the percentage of the memory used. This serves no purpose for Win1010, but was added only for the information.

Certificate Chaser

If the Auto-transfer to the County Hunter option is turned off and after a   record was entered that was in the County Hunter —  the next record, if the station was not in the CH would display the info from the previous station. This was fixed.

Daily Log

The 3.3 version increased the capacity of the EPC database to 20,000 records and noted that the last EPC number at that time was 8093. If using Auto-EPC-insert, the last number 8093 was entered into the Daiily Log by default if the call did not have an EPC number, but could be edited out. It was assumed that the file would also have 8093 records, but several numbers were skipped including EPC-6000 and the total number of EPC numbers was 8089. This caused the program to read in some blank records into memory and was causing this problem, which was fixed.

What's New In Win1010 Version 3.3 Released September 4, 2009

Replaced the FreeSize OCX control with the Active Resize OCX. The resize OCX controls make the screens full screen no matter what the monitor resolution is. FreeSize has been conflicting with Microsoft Vista and is no longer being supported. The new Active Resize OCX is Vista compatible. Added new routine for automatic downloading of database updates. To access this routine, click on the new 'Download Updates' label at the top of the screen. You must be logged on the Internet to use this new routine. This routine will also update the FCC files and program updates.. This 3.3 update also adds two new OCX files — one for the resizing control (AResize.ocx)   and one for the Internet access (Msinet.ocx).

Contest Program

Added routine to read the "Contest Fast Start" PDF file from the 'Help' label at the top of the screen. The Adobe Reader or some other PDF reader must be installed for this option to work.

County Hunter

Whenever a record was edited, the "RST Received" displayed was the same as the "RST Sent". Most users just use the default 599 and 59 for both, so this has gone un-noticed for a good number of years. It was discovered by a new Win1010 user who entered 33 for the received report and 55 for the sent report. When editing, both were 55. This also happened in the Daily Log and was fixed in both places.

Daily Log

The routines that checked the County Hunter to see if the Mobile, CW, RTTY, or PSK31 contacts were new, did not work right if the preceeding contact was that same mode. If the mode was changed for every contact, then the routines worked correctly. This was fixed. The 070 database capacity was increased to 10000 and the EPC to 20000. The F8 routine was expanded to include new CW, PSK31, RTTY and Mobiles. Before running the F8 routine, the various Index files should be up-to-date. After running the F8 routine, exit Win1010 and restart. Added a reminder on the small opening screen for the 10-10 Anniversary Contest. The values are based on the computer date, so will adjust automatically for the changing of the year.

What's New In Win1010 Version 3.2d Released January 31, 2009

Contest Program

Added a red popup ‘Volunteer’ box to indicate that the station worked is a 10-10 Volunteer. The Open Season ASCII and printed log format was modified as per a suggestion from the contest scorer. The ‘Wrong County’ check routine had to be by-passed for the Open Season Contest, since it uses the County input field to store the EPC number.

Daily Log

Added support for the ‘Work the 10-10 Volunteers Contest. Whenever a Volunteer is worked, a red popup ‘Volunteer’ box will appear. In the Daily Log Print Menu, a new #9 button was added. This brings up a choice to display the entire list of Volunteers with the ones you have worked marked or the list of just the ones you have worked. A printout of the first list can be used as a worksheet during the year. This later list will be used in preparing either an ASCII log for emailing or a printout for the Award Application. Only Volunteers worked during 2009 will be displayed. The red ‘Change Ann/Vol Year’ button will allow you to change the year to 2010 next year and change every year afterwards. This single button changes both the year dates for the Anniversary and Volunteer Contest. The ADIF export routine had the wrong length for the PSK31 mode label and was corrected.

What's New In Win1010 Version 3.2c Released October 5, 2008

Added 9M6 to the DXCC Country Selection routine. Both Spratley Island and East Malaysia have the same prefix. Updated the DXCC number for Gambia to 422. Also changed the DXCC number for White Russia from zero to 27 which is now Belarus.

Contest Program

Added an option in the main Options Menu in the Contest Setup Tab to file duplicate QSOs. The default is OFF and this is the recommended setup. This option will be filed in the Config File. If the File Dupe option is checked and a dupe is worked, a popup message will give you the option to file or not file the dupe. If a dupe is filed, then the point value is set to zero. The dupe will be printed in the log/ASCII file but will not count in the score. With this File Dupe option OFF, Win1010 will not file a dupe call or 10X number. The ASCII log format has been changed. Moved Broomfield County in Colorado to the top of the county selection list. It was at the bottom, but some missed it. Did not change in the Daily Log or CH. Whenever the Contest Print Menu is accessed, a popup message will ask you if you want to run the "Check Log" routine. This routine compares the callsign in the 1010 database to the log and displays any that are different. This may be due to a typo or a vanity call that has not been updated in the 1010 database yet. Any errors should be corrected before printing the log.

County Hunter

Added a new display option in the VIEW MENU, County Hunter Displays under County Displays: "Display Wrong Counties". This checks each County Hunter record to make sure the county is in the state for that record. If it is not, then it will be displayed. An ASCII file "WrongCounty.TXT". This might be the case if a record was edited to change the QTH State and you forgot to change the county. Added wrong-county checking to FileCH routine. A popup warning will alert the user to make corrections before filing. Added time to the info window whenever a dupe is worked. The Control-I value for the CH Log Height value is now saved in the Config file. The value for the CH and Daily Log Log_Height is different and must be saved separately while in that module. The new value will become the default value.

Daily Log

Added wrong-county checking routine to the Daily Log record filing routine. The Control-I value for the Daily Log Height value is now saved in the Config file.

 

What's New In Win1010 Version 3.2b Released July 15, 2008

Changed the display, printouts and ASCII files reference of the PSK mode to PSK31. The various eQSL web sites looks for PSK31 instead of PSK in the ADIF file. In previous versions, it was possible to have a blank Grid Square record in the Grid.DAT file. A routine was added to remove these blank GS records the first time the 3.2b update is run. It will only be run one time. This routine will create a dummy file named GSFixed.txt, so that the next time Win1010 is started, if this file is present, the GS Fix routine will not run. Updated the CTY_AZ95.TXT file with new DX Countries of St. Barthelemy, Swains Island, and Montenegro.

Contest Program

Added an Open Season Contest ADIF export file which includes the 070 and EPC numbers. Also added an Open Season Contest export routine to the Daily Log. If any new 10X numbers were worked in the Open Season Contest, then export to the Daily Log and run the Daily Log F8 routine to transfer the new 10X to the County Hunter.

Daily Log

Revised the Grid Square input routines to accept duplicate Grid Square entries as long as they are in a different mode. In past versions, working a new Grid Square using SSB would be filed, but if the same station was worked on PSK, then the Grid Square would not be filed since it was a dupe. However, in past versions duplicate Grid Squares would be recorded if it was a new 070 or EPC number. Added an option in the VIEW Menu for Grid Squares to list all Grid Squares worked with a 10X and using the PSK31 mode. Since the Grid.DAT file can contain duplicate Grid Square records, they are duped in the ASCII output files. The printout routine does not dupe. A Win1010 user requested that the Mode be included in the window listing previous contacts in the Daily Log. Depending on your monitor, you may have to slide the scroll bar to see the mode at the right side of the display. In the event that a new Grid Square was worked on PSK31 that was already worked on SSB and not filed in the Grid.DAT file, find the record in the Daily Log display and double-click on it to edit. Then if the auto-insert GS from the FCC Database is on, the Grid Square will be inserted after the first "Enter" key is hit to move to the next field. Hit F1 to refile the record and the Grid Square will be entered into the Grid.DAT file. If the auto-insert GS is not being used, then kept hitting ENTER until you get to the Grid Square field and enter the Grid Square, then hit F1 to file. Fixed Option 7 on Daily Log Menu. Instead of printing the range, the entire Daily Log was printing. Added "Print a Range" to the Option 1 routine. Only choice on old versions was to print/ADIF entire file. Added EPC/070 numbers to Daily Log ADIF exports.

What's New In Win1010 Version 3.2a Released May 23, 2008

Revised the CountDown numbers when the program loads. Now each file has a specific countdown number, whereas in the past, several different files were included in the same countdown number. Now it is easier to spot a missing file. Added to the full setup program a file (MSVBVM50.DLL) needed for installation on a Vista computer. Email me if you just need the 3.2a win1010.exe file.

Contest Program

Contest Program

Added PSK export into the County Hunter. Updated CW export into the County Hunter.

What's New In Win1010 Version 3.2 Released April 10, 2008

Earlier Win1010 versions were written and compiled with Visual Basic 5.0 running under Windows 2000. This version is written and compiled with Visual Basic 6.0 running under Windows XP. VB6 works with Windows Vista better and adds some new features. All future versions will be created by Visual Basic 6.0. This means that several of the existing DLL and OCX files will have to be updated before using the new Win1010 V3.2 update with an earlier version Win1010 program. A program named DLL_UP.EXE will update all the necessary DLL/OCX files. The DLL_UP.EXE program and its CAB file are zipped into a file named DLL_UP.ZIP. It will have to be downloaded and unzipped into a temp folder and then run the DLL_UP.EXE program. It uses the same setup program as Win1010, so accept the default install location. However, no files will be installed there -- only in the Windows/System32 folder.

Modified the 1010.txt file from 75000 records to 85000 records. The newest 10X member in March, 2008 was assigned 10X-74955. Either version of 1010.txt will work with Win1010 version 3.2 and later, but in a few months, the older 75K version will not contain the latest new members. The Win1010 Version 3.2 update will contain the larger 1010.txt file current to April 2008. Fixed the Options Menu Color Help file. It was not displaying and causing a RunTime Error 424. Added two files, epc.txt and 070.txt, to be read into memory upon startup. These are the EPC and 070 Callsign/Number databases. If the option is checked to auto-insert in the Main Options menu CH/DLog tab, the 070 and EPC numbers will be auto-inserted into the Daily Log for contacts in the PSK mode, but not for other modes.

Daily Log

Revised the Anniversary Contest Printout/Displays routine. In the past, the Year Date and 10X number were hard-coded into the program every year. Now the Win1010 user can enter his own date by hitting the red "Change Year" button. 2008 is the default date with the 10X containing "46". Changing the year date to 2009 will automatically change the Anniversary Contest 10X value to contain "47".

Contest Program

A recent addition displayed a new prefix, 10X, VP or County in red in the contest log. However, exiting the program or hitting the REF refresh button would remove the red letters. Added to the "Full Log Display" in the VIEW "Contest DIsplays" menu, code to make a new Prefix, 10X, VP or County be displayed in red. This display occupies the entire screen and the new ones are easy to spot. Added support for the new ‘Open Season Contest’. For this contest the 070/EPC numbers are auto-inserted in the Contest Program. There is an option on the Contest Tab in the Main Options screen to activate the Open Season Contest Mode. Checking the OS Contest Mode will also change several other configuration options as indicated by a popup window when the SAVE button is hit. Also added a popup Open Season Contest Help page on the Contest Tab screen. An ASCII contest email submission file is available for the Open Season Contest.

What's New In Win1010 Version 3.1b Released November 26, 2007

Bug Fix Release: The trap to alert user if an entered call has two different 10X numbers was also inserted into the Red Button #1 code and caused a run-time error 381 if a Chapter List was made. Removed code and fixed the problem.

What's New In Win1010 Version 3.1a Released November 23, 2007

Added a routine to add or edit OM/XYL pairs to the Database Utilities. This new routine is on the "Edit 1010 and VP Database" screen. Updated the OM/XYL database with 175 new pairs. Fixed the popup window when you enter a call that has two 10X numbers. The first digit of a five digit 10X number was not shown on the first 10X number.

Daily Log

When working a new mobile and there was a County Hunter log entry for the same mobile, but before the start date of January 1, 1996, it would not recognize it as a new mobile. This was fixed and if you have any mobiles in the County Hunter before the start date that were entered into the County Hunter after that date, they should be checked to make sure the MBAR indicator is set correctly.

Certificate Chaser

Added the Grid.dat file to the backup/restore routines. A trap to alert user if an entered call has two different 10X numbers was added.

What's New In Win1010 Version 3.1 Released October 3, 2007

Added support to save Grid Squares in the Contest Program and the Daily Log. The Grid Square info is filed in a new file named Grid.dat. Also added a popup window that will calculate the four-place Grid Square from either the zip code or the Lat/Long values. Activate this routine by right-clicking on the Grid Square (GS) entry box. Read about the various Grid Square options and displays in the Daily Log Help File. Added four different Grid Square displays in the County Hunter VIEW menu.

Added 12 new modes to the existing six modes. The 12 modes are all digital modes and will be used in the new WAMODES Award. Choose any of the 12 new modes by hitting ALT-M. The original six more-common modes are still chosen in the same manner in the Daily Log and County Hunter.

Created a new help file named "NewNHelp.RTF". This is a collection of the new help items added in all four help files. It will be easier to read them as a group rather than search through each help file looking for the new material. However, if you do read the four help files, then the new material will appear in red. Access this new file from the Help button at the top of the screen.

In the Database Utilities, the ‘Edit 1010 and VP Databases’ was updated with a new popup window. A display by range of all 10X and VP numbers was added.

Certificate Chaser

Added option to the special GB Ten routine (CTRL-G) to make the CARS application using one seal at a time. Added an option to the Red Button #1 Chapter Display to only display DX stations and another option to only display records with more than a specified total points, such as 2000 or 5000. This option can be used in one of the GB Ten Awards. There is more info on the CTRL-G routine in the Certificate Chaser Help file. Added new routine in the Utility Menu ‘U’ to remove calls with a zero 10X caused by importing a ML file with no or a misplaced 10X number.

Contest Program

The Contest Program has been configured to run unlimited in the Demo Mode until February 19, 2008. This period covers three contests: 1010 Sprint, CW/Digital and Winter Phone QSO. This was done to promote more activitiy and to demostrate the contest program. Added three options in the Contest Setup tab of the main Options Menu. (1) Added check box to activate the Grid Square input routine. (2) If the FCC Database is checked to be accessed on each contact and the box to auto-insert the Grid Square from the FCC DB is checked, then the Grid Square will automatically be inserted into the GS field. If the Grid Square is a new one, then the box will turn red. (3) The default contest mode is now chosen from a drop-down menu listing the 18 different modes. This default contest mode will be used in a contest QSO record unless another one is chosen by the use of the ALT-M routine. More info in the Contest Help file. A new config file (win10cfg.cfg) was created to save this info. A popup info window will appear whenever a new contest is started. This is to remind the user of the new changes. The Mode field was added to the Edit QSO window. Updated ADIF Contest Log Import/Export to include the new digital modes. Also Contest Log Export to the County Hunter and Daily Log to include the new digital modes that were added.

County Hunter

Added a new display option in the VIEW Digital Menu. This display will list all digital records sorted by mode. Then this display will be used to display the 100 contacts required using 10 different digital modes for the WAMODES Award. An ASCII file and printout is available. Added four Grid Square displays in the County Hunter VIEW Menu. Added ASCII file for the County, VP and PX Awards. Added the ADIF export of the mode for the County Hunter file.

Daily Log

Added Grid Square input box and popup window to calculate Grid Squares from the Zip Code or Lat/Long values. Added new Mobile and CW contacts to the Auto-F4 routine. Working a new Mobile will turn the callsign red and a "New Mobile" will display on the small display window. Fixed bug in the Auto-F4 of Mobile and CW contacts when Auto-F4 was activated by a new 10X, VP, County, PX, DX or Digital contact. The MBAR and CWBAR Indicators were not being set correctly. Therefore, before running any Mobile or CW Applications, you should use the County Hunter Utility Menu option to "Update" the Mobile and CW Indicators. Added the mode to the ADIF export for the Daily Log file.

 

What's New In Win1010 Version 3.0 Released August 1, 2007

County Hunter

Added ASCII output file for the 10X BAR Award Application. Filename is YourCall_300.TXT representing the 300 BAR. Email ASCII BAR Applications may be accepted sometime in the future. Added support for the QRZ.COM web access to all Win1010 modules. Added extra length in all modules for the OM/XYL red popup bar. Changed the Help files from the *.HLP Windows Help system to the RTF format which can be read by WordPad. Vista no longer supports the original Windows Help System. All help files were updated.

Daily Log

Added support for the 070 and EPC numbers. Various displays/printouts/ASCII files including list sorted by calls and by number. Also DXCC and WAS displays/ASCII/Printouts. Updated the Dupe10X.TXT file which lists the calls that have two different 10X numbers. Access this list by using the F11 key in the Daily Log.

What's New In Win1010 Version 2.9g Released June 22, 2007

County Hunter

The OM/XYL red popup box was enhanced to include the last Daily Log or DL Archive work date. If not worked, then "Not Wrk" will appear which will alert the Win1010 User to ask if the other member is available for a contact. If the last contact was in the Archive file, then "-A" will be appended to the date. This feature was also added to the OM/XYL popup red bar in the Daily Log and Contest Programs.

Daily Log

The 44th 10X Anniversary Contest routine was changed to the 45th 10X Anniversary Contest. All printouts, displays, etc., were changed to reflect working a 10X member with "45" in the 10X number. Enhanced the OM/XYL red popup as indicated above.

Certificate Chaser

Added VP support for the ADIF to CSV conversion routine. Also added a counter so that the progress will be displayed. Enhanced the OM/XYL red popup as indicated above.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.9f Released September 22, 2006

County Hunter

The F11 CheckLog routine for the County Hunter data file has been enhanced to make callsign editing easier. An option in the Main Options Menu (CH/DLog tab) was added to change the use of the CITY field for use as a NEW CALL field. If this option is checked, then the label for the CITY field is changed to NCALL. Use of this is optional, but since the City is not required for any awards, it might be better used for this purpose. For example, you worked KC5CP back in the 1980's and when you run the F11 routine, it points out that the call does not match that of the present 1010 database call which is N5MT. You can use the CITY file (now NCALL) for his new call of N5MT for this old record. This is only for information. The F11 ASCII compare routine was expanded to either display calls of the same first letter or different first letter. If you want to edit a record in this display, then select by clicking on it and then doing a right-click and the record is automatically displayed in the EDIT fields. Also the FCC and XXIP data is shown in the small window to allow the user to confirm the name and QTH. If you then desire to put the new call into the NCALL field, simply hit the ALT-Z  key and if a city was in the field, it will be deleted and the new call entered. The ALT-Z routine should be used for vanity callsign updates. If the original call was transposed or one letter wrong, etc., then the original call should be edited in the CALL field.

Daily Log

The Auto-F4 routine was not handling new Digital contacts correctly, if an old Digital contact was already in the County Hunter before the August 1, 2006 start date. The County Hunter date was not being checked. This has been fixed.

Main Options Menu

In the "Database Path" tab/page is a new box for an USB Thumb Drive (or external hard drive) path. This external media device can be used for backing up a contest file, the County Hunter CH95.DAT file and/or the Daily LOG Log.DAT file. This can be done by entering "SAVEA" into the call field in each of the three programs. The backup will only take a second and can be done anytime and will overwrite the existing backup file. The "SAVEA" command was used in the very first 1010 DOS Contest Program to backup a contest file to a floppy disc. Hovering the mouse cursor over the Thumb Drive field in the Options Menu will display several accepted formats for the path. This path will be saved to the CH Config file, so it only has to be entered one time. This external USB Thumb Drive can also be used in the CertChaser red button #10 backup routine "To a Zip Drive or Other Hard Drive". Just enter the drive letter that was assigned.  (Look in My Computer for the drive letter). The complete backup will be in the /Backup folder on the Thumb Drive. The individual backup files done by the "SAVEA" routine will be in the root folder on the Thumb Drive. NOTE: The SAVEA type backup should not take the place of a full backup.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.9e Released August 15, 2006

County Hunter

Added a new option to the F11 CheckLog for the County Hunter data file. The F11 routine was modified to also create an ASCII log (F11.TXT) of the potential errors found by the CheckLog routine. Most of these discrepancies are vanity calls, but some will be transposed letters in the callsign, such as entering K4HVA for K4HAV. In the option to sort the list by call or 10X, a new option was added to compare the call in the County Hunter to the call in the 1010 database. The ASCII value of the various callsign letters are added and compared and if both beginning letters are the same and the difference less than 75, then the two calls are displayed with the difference. A difference of zero would indicate a transposed call. The difference between K4HAV and K4HAU would be one, since the ASCII value of the "V" and "U" are one apart. The Score Box was modified to also contain the number of Digital contacts worked and unused for the BAR Award.

Daily Log

The Auto-F4 routine was modified to automatically transfer new PSK, RTTY, and CW contacts into the County Hunter. Previously, the user had to manually use the F4 key for this transfer.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.9d Released August 8, 2006

County Hunter

Added support for RTTY contacts for the Digital Award. The award can now use a combination of PSK and/or RTTY contacts. The DigBAR indicator system prevents using a single station on both PSK and RTTY. A Digital WAS display and printout was added. The printout does not require contacts in all 50 states so it can be used as a 'States Needed" reminder. An ASCII file is automatically created with each printout. This award will probably be activated early in 2007 and will use contacts on or after August 1, 2006.  A 10 record RTTY printout/ASCII file was added to apply for the RTTY Endorsement. This will use the first 10 RTTY contacts. The popup box asking for the membership expiration date has been removed from all award applications. This info is no longer required for awards.

Daily Log

If a new RTTY contact is entered that is not already in the County Hunter, the RT mode box will turn red. Hitting F4 will also file into the County Hunter.  If this 10 already has a PSK contact, then the County Hunter DigBAR indicator will be set to "U".

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.9c Released July 25, 2006

Certificate Chaser

An option to use an application starting date was added to the red buttons #1 and #2 which make the long-type applications for chapters and seals. The routine checks the Daily Log and if a QSO is there on or after the starting date, then this chapter/seal record is included in the application.

County Hunter

Added support for the new Digital Award which begins August 1, 2006. The Digital BAR application is in the County Hunter Print Menu with the other BAR applications. At the present time, only PSK contacts are considered in this Digital Award. There is an option to make an ASCII version of the printed application which can be emailed. In the VIEW menu, you can display the Dig_BAR.DAT file, all Digital contacts since August 1, 2006, all Digital contacts that have been used in an award application (DigBAR = "Y") and all Digital contacts that have not been used for an award application (DigBAR = "N"). The Dig_BAR.DAT file is a recap of all Digital BAR applications. A similar xx_BAR.DAT file exists for all awards. The DigBAR indicator box is to the right of the RST Received box. There was not room for a label for this box. The DigBAR indicator can be reset using the CoHunter Utility Menu and there is a routine there to set duplicate PSK contacts to DigBAR indicator = "U" for Unusable.

Daily Log

If a new PSK contact is entered that is not already in the County Hunter, the PSK mode box will turn red. If you want to also file this contact in the County Hunter, then hit the F4 key to transfer it, before hitting the F1 key to file. The Auto-F4 or F8 routines will not file new PSK contacts unless they happen to also be a new 10X, VP, PX, County or DX. Use the manual F4 routine instead.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.9b Released June 9, 2006

Certificate Chaser

In the ASCII import routine to the Daily Log, the imported data went into the original Log.Dat file. This was fine if the multiple Daily Log option was not being used, because the target file was hard-coded to the original log.dat file. Now the import will be into the Default Daily Log file, whichever one is active during the import. In the "F" button Files Menu, an option was added to the #18 button - Import ASCII files. This option will convert an ADIF file to a comma-delimited (CSV) ASCII file. Many of the popular logging programs do not have CSV output but will output in the ADIF format. This will allow Win1010 users to import their logging data into the Win1010 Daily Log. Read the Help file in the ASCII routine for more info.

Contest Program

If editing the contest database for U.S. stations, a two letter USPO state abbreviation would appear in the database in the same manner it was typed. For example: GA, Ga or ga. A trap was inserted to make all two letter QTH's upper case.

Daily Log

Changed 'Work the Numbers' award data from 43 to 44. In the Daily Log Print Menu, options 2 and 7 did not use the correct Mode when making as ASCII file. This was fixed. Daily Log Print Menu option 6 was changed from print all records to print a range of records. Also added option to print a single mode and/or single band. An ASCII output file option was also added. In the Daily Log Utilities Menu, option 3 was expanded to include both the mode and band. The display can now be done for a single mode or frequency (band).

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.9a Released February 9, 2006

Daily Log

Fixed Run Time Error 13 when entering a new Daily Log Name. The max-length error checking routine had been deleted. The maximum capacity of the Daily Log Archive file has been increased to 60,000.

Certificate Chaser

The maximum point values in the Springbok weekly contact program was changed requiring a modification in the code.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.9 Released May 29, 2005

Added default values to the "top of form" variable that makes the last added record appear at the bottom of the form. If a non-standard screen resolution/size was used (as in a wide-screen notebook), the last file record and all the ones before it might be off the screen display and the screen would appear to be blank.

Certificate Chaser

Added ML User display sorted by call. Now two ML User lists sorted by 10X and call are displayed in separate windows. Double-clicking on the Call sorted display will give an option for a printout of both list side-by-side. This ML User routine is activated by hitting the green 'ML' button in the ML routine screen. Added Option #21 and #22 to Files Menu (the ‘F’ button) to Merge either two Chapters or two Seals. The merged file names are MergedChap.CHP and MergedChap_MergedSeal.UPG. These can be duped by using red buttons #1 and #2 and then sorting on the 10X column. Write down the record number of the dupe to remove and then use the F4 and F5 routines to delete the dupes. Then use the Utility Menu (the ‘U’ button at the bottom of the screen) to remove the Deleted records.

Contest Program

Changed maximum number of contacts from 3000 to 3500. Added ALT-M routine. When working the Sprint or CW Contest, you can hit the Alt-M keys and enter a different mode. When making an ASCII log, these different modes will be used. Also when exporting to the Daily Log, the different modes will be transferred to the Daily Log. These different modes will also be transferred with the new 10X numbers to the County Hunter.

County Hunter

Added option to the F4 and F11 routines to omit mobiles and portables from the display. Added Control-I routine to reduce the number of log items displayed when the screen is not full screen. If window is 1/4 size, then use #3 or 2 as a trial and error starting point. Added to the VIEW 10X_BAR routine the option to display the records in the 10X Bar file sorted by 10X. This is a great way to spot dupes that have been submitted. If you were editing a record and did not file it or clear the input fields before hitting the 'EXIT' button, the record that was being edited would become corrupted. This has been fixed. Normally one would not start to edit a record and not finished the routine, but it has happened. Added a print option to the VIEW Menu "Display DX Stations Worked". Prints 50 records per page. Also added QSL indicator number to display.

Daily Log

Increased capacity from 22000 to 30000 records. Added option on Daily Log Utilities Menu to delete a range of the Daily Log. Several users have exported a contest log twice (or more) into the Daily Log by mistake. This routine will allow you to delete a range of Daily Log records which will remove the duplicate records. Added option on Daily Log Utilities Menu to delete the non-10X records in either the Daily Log or the Daily Log Archive file (log_arch.dat). This was added to remove non-1010 records to make more room in the log files. Added Control-I routine to reduce the number of log items displayed when the screen is not full screen. If screen is 1/4 size, then use #3 or 2 as a starting point. Added on Main Options Menu 'Misc' Tab a routine to use multiple Daily Log Files. Additional daily log files must be in the 'DL_xxxxx.dat' format. Max Filename length = 8 digits. The default Daily Log file is saved to the config file. See the Daily Log Help file for more details on how to use this new feature. If you were editing a record and did not file it or clear the input fields before hitting the 'EXIT' button, the record that was being edited will become corrupted. This has been fixed. Normally one would not start to edit a record and not finished the routine, but it has happened before several times. Changed Worked the Numbers Award to those 10X with 43 in it.

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.8c Released October 6, 2004

Two new OCX files were required to run under Windows XP Service Pack 2. Version 2.8c was compiled using these two new OCX files. For previous versions copying the updated CSTEXT32.OCX and CSCMD32.OCX files into the Windows/System32 folder is all that is needed to run prior versions of Win1010 when using XP SP2.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.8b Released May 1, 2004

Removed user callsign validate routine from the stand-alone 10X program. Now user can modify his call in the User_95.dat file in the Options Menu and the 10X program will work. This version (both update and full setup) is compiled with the new TABCTL32.OCX file. The Version 2.8a update was compiled with the new TAB OCX file and some users had the 50003 error. Manually installing the new TAB OCX file solved the problem.

County Hunter

Fixed the OM/XYL display so that dupes will not be displayed.

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.8a Released January 28, 2004

Added routine in Database Utilities to display all the SK records in the County Hunter or Daily Log (and DL_Archive file). The SK display in the CH has a print option. The XXIP database search routine was updated to find calls with the "/M" on the end of the call.

Certificate Chaser

Added routine in Database Utilities to display all the SK records in the County Hunter or Daily Log (and DL_Archive file). The SK display in the CH has a print option. The XXIP database search routine was updated to find calls with the "/M" on the end of the call.

Certificate Chaser

Modified the Springbok Weekly Contact Birthday routine to meet the new Monthly Birthday requirements.

Contest

Added red popup msg box to alert user of a possible OM/XYL team. Added the state on the County Selection window to make sure you are in the correct state when choosing the county. Added support for the 2004 Mobile Contest. Before any new contest files are created or existing contest files reopened, you must go to the Options Menu under the Contest Setup tab and check the red "Mobile Mode" button. This must be rechecked if the Win1010 program is restarted. The checkbox for "County Input Mode On" must also be checked. If the "Auto Insert County From FCC Database" is on, then the county for a fixed station will be inserted; however, the county for a "/M" mobile station will not be inserted.

The contest name must begin with the six characters "Mobile". Suggested contest name is "Mobile04" for a station working Fixed. For a mobile operator working from more than one county, the suggested names are "Mobile04a" for the first county working from, then "Mobile04b" for the second county, "Mobile04c", and so on from each different county. Each county worked from must have a separate log. A file named "MobileCo.TXT" is created to keep track of the different counties you have worked. This same file was used during the 2003 Mobile Contest and if exists, you will be prompted to delete it. If you do a test run before the contest, the file will be created and should be deleted (when prompted) before the Mobile Contest starts. If you are a mobile changing counties and starting a new contest log, then you should NOT delete this file, since it will be keeping a running record of the various counties that you have worked from all counties of operation.

A mobile working from different counties should keep a record of the contest filename that corresponds to that county operation. No record is kept in Win1010 of the county of operation as was the case of the 2003 contest. Another contest file naming option for mobile stations would be to use the name of the county in the contest file name. For example: Mobile04_Tift, Mobile04_Turner, Mobile04_Worth which represents counties in my location in Georgia.

A mobile working from a two, three, four, or five county line location should just create one log for that operation. Then after the contest that same log can be used to print the multiple logs. A popup question will ask you which county you were working from if you are a mobile operation. Just reprint the log 4 times for a 4 county line operation, changing the county name each time.

For a fixed station, the yellow score box will be accurate since the final score will be the number of different counties times the number of contacts. However, for a mobile station changing counties, the score box will not display the total score, but only that score for the current contest log. The number of total counties will be correct, since this value will be obtained from the MobileCo.TXT file.

A fixed station that works a mobile on a multiple county line should enter the contact for each of the counties. Working a mobile on a 3 county line will count for 3 contacts and therefore should be entered 3 times, changing the county each time.

For the Mobile entry, the ASCII file created for the 2nd, 3rd, etc counties will have to be renamed. There is a trap to prevent over-writing the first. It is suggested that if the first ASCII county line contest file is named K4HAV_Mobile04a.log then the next file be named K4HAV_Mobile04a2.log, and so on for each county file on this multi-county line operation. A popup window will advise that the file already exists and will prompt you for a different file name. Or see the section below on how to combine logs from a multiple county operation if you are using the ASCII electronic log method.

A county is required for all US, British and some Canadian contacts. The only Canadian provinces that have counties are Nova Scotia, Pr Edward Is, New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario. If one of these QTH’s is entered, then the county selection window will display the counties for that QTH. Double click on the proper county. If a county is not entered in one of these contacts, a pop-up window will prompt you to go back and enter the county or the option to file the contact with zero points to be edited later.

During contest operation, the Control-C routine may be needed. When hit, the counties will be displayed for the U.S. state, VE1, VE2, VE3 or England that is in the QTH field. Double-click the proper county. To edit an existing contact, double-click on the record which will bring up the Log Edit Window. Double-clicking on the CoWrk (Counties Worked) label in the yellow Mobile Contest Score Box will display all the counties that have been worked. A DX county will have "DX County" next to the county name.

CAUTION: When editing a contest record and changing the county, the MobileCo.TXT file is NOT updated. This was done in the 2003 Mobile Contest because only one log was used; however, this year a separate log is used for each different county making this impossible to update. Therefore, if the county had been worked before (or worked later), no harm will be done, but if the record being edited was the only contact in that county, then the total counties will be in error and will have to be manually corrected at log printing time. If the county that was just edited is a new county, then the MobileCo.TXT file will be updated. The score box will not be updated until the next QSO is filed.

Many of the Mobile stations will probably log by hand. These contacts can be entered into Win1010 by using the "Post Contest Mode" which can be activated in the Options Menu under the "Contest Setup" tab. The Mobile Contest mode must also be chosen before a new contest file is opened..

A call vs. county dupe file is maintained for each contest. Working K4HAV/M in Tift County and K4HAV/M in Turner County will not trigger the dupe warning, but working K4HAV/M twice in Tift County will. This file will be named the same as the contest file, but will have the "log" extension instead of the "Q95" contest file extension. The normal contest dupe routines (calls and 10X) are by-passed for the Mobile Contest.

An ASCII electronic log will be accepted for this contest and provisions for making the ASCII file is in the Contest Print Menu. Load the contest file, go to the Contest Print Menu and then click on the red "M Log" button. Follow the instructions in the popup boxes to make either the ASCII file(s) or the printout(s). An ASCII file or printout will have to be made for each contest log for a mobile working in different counties (or combined into a combo log – see below). The ASCII filename will be the call sign plus the filename of the contest file. For example: K4HAV_Mobile04a.log.

 

How to make a Combined Log for a Multiple County Mobile Operation

The ASCII log below is for a 3 county line, individual class mobile operation: Tift, Worth and Turner Counties in Georgia. Make the ASCII log one time and then open NotePad, making sure the font is set to Courier or some other fixed-spaced font before opening the file. Open the file and then copy the file and paste two copies below the first file. This results in the same contest log being shown 3 times. Then go to the second log and edit the second line to "Operation from Worth County - GA" and the second line in the 3rd copy to "Operation from Turner County - GA. Resave the file using the same name.

This will result in a combo log covering a 3 county-line operation. If you operated from a 2 or 4 county line, then you would have 2 or 4 logs shown in the combo log.

NOTE: The Win1010 program does not combine scores for each log. This will be done by the Contest Scorer. The score for this combo log would be 3 x 54 = 162.

The Contest Scorer will accept individual logs or either a combination log, but he cautions to be sure not to use a proportional font as the columns will not line up. It would be just as easy to combine logs from 20 different counties by copying and pasting from two NotePad programs running at the same time. The combining of multiple county line operations saves time and work in renaming the 2nd, 3rd, etc., county log using the popup window when the file is found to already exist.

The log shown below, even thought in a fixed-space font doesn't line up on the web page. However, the "What's New in Version 2.8a" file in the Win1010 program will line up. Access this file from the "Help" button.

Mobile Contest Run Time Error 75 - If you should get a RTE 75 when entering a QSO, then you opened the contest file before you went to the Options Menu and selected the Mobile Operating Mode. The Options Menu step must be done first.

County Hunter

Added routine activated by Control-O to check the CH file and display all the OM/XYL teams found. An OM-XYL database is compared with the CH95.dat file and if both OM and XYL have been worked, then it will appear in the display. Double-click on the display for an ASCII file and option for a printout. Added red popup msg box to alert user of a possible OM/XYL team in the Contest, County Hunter and Daily Log programs. Control-J will list any contact made with a single member of an OM/XYL team and display the missing member. Added red popup msg box to alert user of a possible OM/XYL team.

The OM/XYL database (OMXYL.DAT) consist of approximately 1300 teams and the data is the 10X numbers of the pairs. This database was built using existing lists of OM/XYL teams and comparing names, addresses and ages of hams living in the same zip code in the FCC Amateur Database. It was assumed that a man and woman having the same last name, living at the same address and whose age differences were in the normal marrying range were indeed a valid OM/XYL team. However, since it is possible that this could be a brother-sister team, it is the Win1010 user’s responsibility to confirm the validity of all teams. It is also quite possible that some of the teams in the database are not valid or are date sensitive. Take the case of the OM/XYL team, where the OM became a SK in 1999. Then his son got the vanity call that belonged to his dad. Contacts of the pair before 1999 would be valid, but contacts after the OM was SK would not be valid. In most cases, the 10X comparison should keep the later mother-son team from being used. Just using the calls would lead to an error in using the current team. Should anyone find any errors or know of any OM/XYL teams not in the database, please email details to me at k4hav@hds.net so they can be added or corrected. The updated list will be posted on the Win1010 download web page.

Daily Log

Added red popup msg box to alert user of a possible OM/XYL team. Added 10X search for call not in the contest database (db95.dat)

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.8 Released January 28, 2004

Certificate Chaser

Added the option to edit the Last Sent/Received List Logs in the Certificate Chaser Utility Menu (the ‘U’ Button). A backup of the List Logs is automatically made. Modified ML input routine to accept 8x3 DOS format ML files generated by the DBTEN ListWiz program. Earlier versions required the underline character "_" to be in the file name. The ListWiz ML files had the "_" in all cases but for a six letter callsign. Added routine to check to make sure the Zip.EXE file is present. This file is used in the Zip Backup Routine. It was included in several recent update packages, but at least one user was reporting the RTE 53 "File Not Found". At the time, the absence of this file was not considered as the cause of the error. Several times a space in the filename before the ".CHP" or ".UPG" would also cause the error. The file is now posted on the Win1010DL web page for any who skipped those updates.

Contest

Revised ASCII LOG routine to meet new Contest Rules requirements. The new ASCII file can be emailed to the Contest Manager saving time and postage. Existing windows and buttons were used for this routine and as time permits, the ASCII routine may be rewritten. For the existing routine, load the contest log, run the Contest Print Menu and just hit the ASCII button, fill in the Cover Page items and hit the Continue button, then fill in the default log items and hit the Make ASCII File button.

Daily Log

Added Partial Call support to the Daily Log. Entering a partial call and hitting the "PAR" button will search both the Default Contest Database and the Daily Log. The Archive Log is not checked. Changed the code to support the 42nd Anniversary Contest.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.7c Released October 30, 2003

Added the option to Edit the VP Database under the Database Utility Menu. Now you use the same menu item to edit either the 1010 or VP databases. Modified FCC search program so if call is a DX, then the Flying Horse - Radio Amateur CallBook CD or the QRZ CD will be searched (if installed).

Certificate Chaser

Modified ASCII Import routine for Seal import, so that if the Total Points and/or Used Points Field Number is left blank, then the Total Points will be given the default value of 1 (one) point and the option to set the Used Points to 1 (one) or 0 (zero) points. Added Edit routine to Red Button #1 and #2 to be able to edit the TPoint values. Highlight or select the record to edit and hit the blue EDIT button. Enter the new Total Points and hit the F1 key or just ENTER to file the record. The updated display will change the values and display in red. This edit routine works with the calls sorted.

Contest

Added trap in the Contest Log Export/Import routine to prevent program crash if no contest log is loaded.

County Hunter

Fixed bug in VP Database printout routine that prevented entire list from being printed. Added option to View VP Database to show display sorted by QTH. This can be used to find VP members in those rare states for VP WAS. This routine uses the Contest Database (DB95.DAT) to obtain the state; therefore, if the station is not in the DB95.DAT, then he will not appear in this display.

Daily Log

Modified F11 routine to find all calls that have two or more 10X numbers. This routine now uses the current 1010.txt database and displays the results sorted by calls. My AMD 1800 takes about 70 minutes to complete. The output file is included in the update package. It will be used for the display if present or you can create a new one. Added Last List Sent/Rec dates to small window display for call entered into the Daily Log. Editing the Springbok value in the MISC field only worked for an increased value. Now it also works also for a smaller value. Editing the SBxx# value in the Daily Log MISC field will trigger the option to also update the Chapter file. Fixed ADIF Export (button #7) to only include records in the range. Old version exported all records to the ADIF file. Also added option to export all bands in addition to the existing one band option.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.7b Released August 25, 2003

Certificate Chaser

Fixed the date trap for the Daily starting date. The trap was only to apply to the Springbok Weekly routine, but applied to all the Daily routines also. Modified the Springbok Weekly dupe removal routine. The first method left the first contact of the week. The new method leaves the latter record if it has a higher point value.

County Hunter

The "R" to repeat the last date is now working also for the EDIT routine. You must edit the first record to put the date in memory and then hit "R" for the next date to repeat the previous date.

Daily Log

The "R" to repeat the last date is now working also for the EDIT routine. You must edit the first record to put the date in memory and then hit "R" for the date to repeat the previous date. The Springbok Chapter file (if it contains records) is searched for the 10X of the Daily Log entry and if found, inserts the point value into the MISC field using the SBxx# format, for use in the Springbok Weekly program. Added Edit routine for Archive Log display. Double click on the record to edit. This will bring up a pop-up window with the 15 fields listed. Enter the field number to edit and hit ENTER. This will bring up a box to enter the new value. After entering the new value, the info window will refresh showing the edit changes.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.7a Released August 5, 2003

Certificate Chaser

Somehow the Progress Bar got removed from the WAS and WACA routines, thus causing the Run Time Error #454 "Object Was Not Found". Replacing the Progress Bar solved the problem. The routine that displays the Certificate Chasers in the County Hunter (Red Button #5) now gets the call from the 1010.TXT file rather than the call in the County Hunter. The calls in the 1010.TXT file will be more current than the call in the County Hunter file.

Contest

On some computers, a null ASCII character is added after the callsign. This normally does not cause any problems, but in the case of the Add-a-Note feature (ALT-N or the NP button), the null ASCII character prevents the ".NOT" file extension from being added to the file name. A null trimming routine was added to the Note routine to cure this. In the past, only four separate notes were allowed for each call. This was increased to six.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.7 Released July 31, 2003

Modified the Update Win1010/FCC program to use the FreeSize OCX control. Added error message to Options Menu for Run Time Error #482. The Options Menu requires that a Windows printer be installed.

Contest

Fixed bug in VP number export from contest log to County Hunter.

Certificate Chaser

Added error routine in Zip Drive Backup to display name of file giving an error and name of group the error occurred. New SentList.log added to backup items. Set ASCII import field indicators to zero when changing from DH to CH. Added support for new Springbok Weekly Contact program. See Daily Help file. Added Last List Sent Date routine. Activate by hitting ALT-Control L. This is similar to the Last List Received Date activated by the Control L keys. The F12 display was modified to also display the Last Sent List Date in a separate window so both can be compared. A new routine activated by hitting Alt-F12 that compares both sent and received list dates and displays (also printout option) calls and dates. Put trap in Daily date ranges to make sure the ENTER key was hit instead of the TAB key. Changed the Utility Menu #4. The chapter or seal highlighted in the big window displaying all the deleted records is now the chapter or seal to be used in the remove 'deleted' records routine. So now you can select one chapter or seal to run and then hit the #4 button, then select another one. By hitting the #3 button, the display will be refreshed minus any chapters or seals that contained deleted records.

County Hunter

Added 'Display all Counties Worked' option to the Print/Display All CH Data, the last item in the County Hunter Print Menu. This info was already available in as ASCII file and printout, but now it is also displayed.

Daily Log

Added routine to check QSL status in County Hunter, Daily Log and Daily Log Archive file to display highest QSL indicator number, date and record number. Not Sent = 0, Sent = 1, Sent and QSL Received = 2. Added new routine in the Daily Log Utilities Menu to extract a range of records from the Log_Arch.dat file. Routine also to display this log. If you want to substitute this 'Extracted' log for the regular Daily Log log.dat file, then you must first rename the log.dat file to something else and then rename this newly extracted file, log_extract.dat to log.dat. Needless to say, you need to have a backup of you Daily Log (log.dat) file BEFORE you start renaming to be safe. The date was also added to the Daily Log and Log_Arch.dat displays so you can extract records for certain dates. Completed Daily Log Utilities Menu Option #2 to delete a range of records from the Log_Arch.dat file. The range entered to delete is displayed before the final OK is hit to make sure you have entered the desired range.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.6 Released March 5, 2003

Mobile Contest Support Added to Contest Program

Added support for the 1010 Mobile Contest. Since the rules are different for this contest, many of the regular contest routines were bypassed and new routines were added. To operate in the "Mobile Contest" mode, the following steps should be done.

(1) Go to the main Options Menu under Contest Setup and check the Mobile Contest check box. The color of this box has been changed to red for easy recognition. This option is not saved in the Win1010 Config file and must be activated each time you restart Win1010. The County Input Mode should also be activated and the Auto Insert County from FCC Records should be inactivated since most mobiles may not be in the home county. The FCC display will display the home county in the FCC info window.

(2) Click on the 'CTY" button at the bottom of the form to find the County Number from which you will operate. If you are going to be mobile, then you should write down the county numbers for those counties you plan to operate from for use later.

(3) Click on the File Menu, then Open New Contest and choose the name of the contest file, something like Mobile03 would be ideal. When leaving this step, a popup box will ask for the County Number you plan to operate from. If you are mobile and change counties, then you should hit the Control-L key to enter a new Location county number. This county will appear in red in the "Mobile Contest" score box. The Fixed station will only enter this County Number one time.

A county is required for all US, British and some Canadian contacts. The only Canadian provinces that have counties are Nova Scotia, Pr Edward Is, New Brunswick, Quebec and Ontario. If one of these QTH's is entered, then the county selection window will display the counties for that QTH. Double click on the proper county. If a county is not entered in one of these contacts, a popup window will prompt you to go back and enter the county or the option to file the contact with zero points to be edited later.

Since the rules of the Mobile Contest allow you to work a mobile in multiple counties, the regular call and 10X dupe checking routines have been bypassed. A mobile can be worked again for county credit, but the contact points will be zero for additional contacts. A contact with a mobile in the same county will be duped and not entered. For this duping, a new file is created named Mobile03.log (or whatever your contest file is named with the "log" file extension). This file records the call and county of each contact and is checked for each contact to make sure a dupe is not filed. The contents of this file can be displayed by hitting Control-I.

The yellow Mobile Contest Score Box has the Operating County Location shown in red. Also updated with each contact is the number of unique contacts, number of counties and the total score based on these values. This will be the exact score for the fixed station, but the mobile station will add the number of counties he worked from to the number of counties worked to calculate his final score. This is done automatically in the log print routine. The operating county is entered in each QSO record and is used in the log print routine to determine how many counties the mobile worked from. Again, use the Control-L to enter the county number whenever you change counties.

Two or three county line operation: Enter the first county number with the first contact, then use Control-L to enter the 2nd county number before the 2nd contact, and finally use Control-L again to enter the 3rd county number before the 3rd contact. These counties will appear in the log and will be used to determine the score of the contest. Comments can be added to the log or email sending the ASCII log naming the range of contacts that were from that two or three county line operation. In the event you should forget to change locations for the 2nd and 3rd contact and use the same county for the entire operation from the 2 or 3 county-line location, then you can edit the QSO record of the first and second QSO from this location by double-clicking on it and hit the small "L" button. This will popup a question box asking for the County Number for the location. You must know this number before you edit the record.

Fixed Operation: If you should work a mobile on a two, three, or four county-line, then you should re-enter the QSO again for the other counties. The point value will be zero, but each new county will count as a multiplier. So if you work K7QXG/M on a three county line, you should have three log entries for K7QXG/M in a row with a different county for each one. The first contact will count one contact point and the next two will be zero contact points.

The Mobile Contest log is printed in the regular Contest Print Menu located on the File menu. There is a new red button named "M Log" which will ask you if you are a mobile or a fixed station. Then the option to make an ASCII log with the filename of Call_M.LOG, where Call is the owners call. Then an option for a printout. Hitting the red "M Log" button is the first step - no need to make any other selections. No dupesheet or coverpage is needed for this contest. If you are using the Win1010 Contest mode in the free mode, then a popup box will ask for your name, call and 10X number if you have one.

The Mobile Contest Rules published in the 10-10 Newsletter advised the mobile operator to send logs for each county. However, the method used in the Win1010 Mobile Contest routine to combine all counties into one log has been approved by the Mobile Contest Manager and will greatly simplify both the log-keeping, submission and scoring. The Contest Manager will accept either the ASCII log or the printed log.

During contest operation, the Control-C routine may be needed. When hit, the counties will be displayed for the U.S. state, VE1, VE2, VE3 or England that is in the QTH field. Double-click the proper county. To edit an existing contact, double-click on the record which will bring up the Log Edit Window. Double-clicking on the CoWrk (Counties Worked) label in the yellow Mobile Contest Score Box will display all the counties that have been worked. A DX county will have "DX County" next to the county name. Every time a QSO record is edited and saved (or just the SAVE button is hit), the County Worked Index file is recreated. If this was not done, then if you edited in a different county, this new county would not show up as a new county.

Many of the Mobile stations will probably log by hand. These contacts can be entered into Win1010 by using the "Post Contest Mode" which can be activated in the Options Menu under the "Contest Setup" tab.

Certificate Chaser

Added a printout option to the Utility Menu button #3 which displays the deleted records in all the chapter and seal files. Having a printout will make the process of running the Utility Menu button #4 routine easier. You can check off the chapters and/or seals as you remove the deleted records. The printout will be 70 records per page.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.5 Released February 17, 2003

Replaced the Resize32.ocx control with the FreeSize.ocx control on the 11 screens where Resize32 was used. On some computers using Norton System Works, there was a conflict with the Resize32 control and some of the supporting DLL files were evidently replaced on the Norton Install. The FreeSize(VB5).OCX control is included in the 2.5 update and should be placed in the Win1010 folder. The 10X.EXE stand-alone 10X and VP search program was updated to use the FreeSize OCX control.

Whenever Win1010 (V2.5 and later)  is started, the Win1010 folder location (path) is written into the Windows Registry. Future self-extracting updates will use this path in the Registry to install updates directly from the web without downloading and unzipping. You can check this value by hitting the Control-X key when in the Contest, CH or DL programs. An additional function was added to the Control-X routine. It will check all DX entries to see if any U.S. Counties were entered by mistake to the DX record. If any are found, they will be displayed and can be manually removed.

County Hunter

Very Important - Please Read: Version 2.3 added to the Daily Log (the same routine is also used in the County Hunter) the option to hit the F1 key to file the record if the date and time field were blank. If so, then the computer date and time would be used. This created a problem in that if the call was in the DB95.DAT file and all the info was automatically added and if the record was filed, without moving through the various fields with the ENTER key, THEN the 10X and VP duping routines were not activated. This could lead to duplicate unused 10X and VP numbers being used in 10X and VP applications. A trap has been installed to insure that the 10X and VP duping routines are run. To make sure that no duplicate "Not Used" indicators are incorrectly set, you should run the "Update Indicators" routines for the 10X and VP in the Utility Menu. It would be a good idea to run the other two Update Indicator routines also. To run these routines, click on the Utility button and choose County Hunter Utilities, then choose the last choice. Only run the "Update Indicator" Routines. Do not run the "Reset Indicator" routines.

To test to see if this happened in your records, you can view the unused 10X and VP numbers and jot that number down. Then run the Update Indicators routine and then check the view unused 10X and VP again and compare the two totals.

Contest

Added a default signal report 599 (CW) or 59 (SSB) to the ADIF Contest log export routine. This is to benefit those using the ADIF file to send to eQSL.

Certificate Chaser

Added a new routine in the Daily Contact program activated by hitting the "CK" button. This will compare the 10X numbers in a selected chapter to those 10X numbers in the TenTen_DailyBD.UPG file and display any chapter members whose birthdays are not in the UPG file. If any are found, then these calls will not be used for the Birthday search, since they are not in the Daily Birthday database. Please advise K4HAV any additions to the Birthday Database. Added call vs. 10X check routine in MyList Import routine to alert user if the 10X does not match the callsign. Hopefully, you should never see this popup message. This would prevent importing a ML into the wrong 10X number.

There was a situation that would place the ASCII Null Character (value = zero) into the Suffix field if left blank. This only happened on the first chapter entered after starting the Certificate Chaser and only if there was no suffix entered. These null characters were only apparent in the F4 Chapter display. All info to the right of the Suffix field would not be displayed. This caused no harm or loss of data but only effected the F4 Display. A new routine was added in the new "U" Utility Menu (see below) to search through all the chapters and display any records that had this null character. Also a routine was added to replace these null characters with the regular ASCII blank character which is ASCII - 32. Added new Blue Button "U" at bottom of screen. This pops up an Utility Menu. This menu has options to check for Null ASCII characters in a blank Suffix field and to remove any found. This does all chapter files at one time. Also a new routine to display any "Deleted" contacts in the Chapter and Seal files with another routine to remove any "Deleted" call records found. This does one file at a time. Added popup messages in Zip Backup Routine to alert users that the compression was not finished - should this be the case and to wait a few seconds and then hit OK to continue. Put a trap in the ML creation routine not to include the TenTen_DailyBD.UPG file in the ML list.

Daily Log

Changed the Archive log to have a maximum number of 50,000 records. See the County Hunter note on Version 2.3. Changed the Archive Log display to be done from memory instead of reading the file. Changed the 40th Anniversary routine to be used with the 41st Anniversary Contest. The F8 routine in previous versions would not transfer new Prefixes or Counties if the 10X already existed in the County Hunter file. This might be the case where a new vanity call resulted in a new prefix or the station was mobile in a new county. Version 2.5 adds separate routines to transfer these prefixes and counties.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.4 Released January 2, 2003

Setup hot keys to start the County Hunter (ALT-Y), Daily Log (ALT-L) and Certificate Chaser (ALT-A) as per an user request.

Certificate Chaser

Fixed Auto-CC-to-CH transfer to transfer back to the Certificate Chaser after the new call is entered to the County Hunter. Removed the TenTen_DailyBD.UPG seal from the seals checked in the ML Update Names routine. This was to avoid the temptation to delete an "excess" seal, which in this case was not excess, but is the Daily Routine Birthday database. Now the search of the County Hunter for "CC" Certificate Chasers is in reverse order. This will now list a new vanity call instead of the old call which was being found from the search beginning at the start of the file. Inserted a trap in the Chapter Number field to prevent entering a zero. Revised ListLog update routine in the ML routine to use the call in the ML List. In past versions, the call already in the List Log was being used. The old way would not recognize a new vanity call for a call already in the Last List Log. Revised Daily Contact routine to include option to search only for Mobiles.

Daily Log

Revised code to remove the /M of mobiles when searching the Daily Log for previous contacts. Entering either K4HAV or K4HAV/M will find all previous contacts with both K4HAV and K4HAV/M. Revised the 40th Anniversary log print out to include the mode and also to provide an ASCII file for electronic log submission.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.3 Released December 15, 2002

Added trap in FCC routine that reads the VE database. If the record was extra long, a runtime error 5 would occur. Added a line in the File Menu to Run the new Update Utility Program. The DX Editor, N5MT, added some new prefixes to the Cty_AZ95.Txt file.

Win1010 - FCC Update Program Version 1.0

The purpose of this new utility program is to aid in the updating of the Win1010 and FCC programs. Many times users have reported downloading an update and then cannot find where they put it. Or they unzip the update into the wrong location. If you have been using the manual unzip method to update the Win1010 program successfully, you may not want to change your procedure, but this program is available if you need it. To run this new program, hit the Files label in the top left part of your screen and click on the option to run the "Win1010 - FCC Update Program". There is a Help file in the Update Program.

Certificate Chaser

Added Control-M routine to allow the Win1010 user to make a ML file for someone whose records is in his Certificate Chaser data. Hitting the Ctrl-M key will ask for the 10X number of the station whose ML list is desired. During the ASCII file creation, you will be asked for the name, street address and QTH. To revert back to your own ML file creation, hit the Ctrl-M key again and choose 'YES'. Added routine to check for no NumLock after display Chap/Seal info or when filing an update. The NumLock was being removed when using Windows XP. Added routine to handle the Daily Contact programs. A birthday database was created in Seal format named TenTen_DailyBD.UPG for use with the new Daily Contact routine. Reversed search order in County Hunter ch95.dat file for call entered into Certificate Chaser call field. New search order is from last record to first record. Added a line of dashes after the end of the ML file. Some users were adding notes and these caused misfits or Run Time Errors. Now the ML display/import routine checks for the dashes as an end of file marker. Removed Option #2 "Automatic File CC Record into Daily Log" from the CC Options Menu since this serves no purpose. Added a Zip Backup Routine to the Certificate Chaser Backup Routine. Added a routine to make the F4 and F5 displays return to the same record after filing an edit. Added a file named MLUser.TXT that has the 10X numbers of all known ML Users. Whenever a call is entered that is in the MLUser list, the 10X field will turn light green to signify a ML user. In the ML routine, a new "ML" button was added to display and/or print this list.

Users are requested to notify K4HAV via email at k4hav@hds.net of errors or additions to the birthday list and to the ML User list. The TenTen_DailyBD.UPG birthday database in seal format should not be added to the Accepted List in the ML routine. Updates of both of these files will be posted on the Win1010 Download website.

Contest

Added trap to prevent a 10X over 75000 from being entered into call field. Added routine that will place the last contest name into the Registry. When you go to the "Open Existing Contest", this contest name will be in the name to open box. This will save time opening the current contest file, if the computer is shut down overnight. If you wish to open a different contest file, then select from the list.

County Hunter

Added trap to prevent a 10X over 75000 from being entered into call field. Added routine activated by Control-E to remove a zero ASCII blank-space character from the call field. On one occasion part of a contest log exported to the County Hunter had the zero ASCII character instead of the normal "32" ASCII blank-space character for the trailing blank spaces. This caused some of the County Hunter displays not to display all the info. At the beginning of this routine, the CH file is checked and if any bad calls are found, they will be displayed and you will be advised to continue with the routine. In the past, the date and time fields were required. Now if they are blank when the F1 key is hit, the computer date and time will be used.

Daily Log

Hard coded KL7NL, KH6OE and AH6KB to use their DB95.DAT Stateside QTH instead of the auto-DX-Country finder based on their prefix. Added trap to prevent a 10X over 75000 from being entered into call field. If the 10X was entered for the callsign, then the previous contacts were not found and displayed in the small window. The 10X to call conversion was adding blank spaces after the call and the compare routine did not work. In the past, the date and time fields were required. Now if they are blank when the F1 key is hit, the computer date and time will be used. A trap to prevent user from using a comma in the Misc field was added. If a comma is used and the comma delimited ASCII file is created, then the part of the Misc info after the comma will be placed in the next field and will thrown off the other fields. Added routine in Log File routine to check the Freq and if not 10 Meters, then the 10X (if there is one) is set to zero, since obtaining a 10X on another frequency is not a valid 10X exchange.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.2 Released September 20, 2002

Added one line of code to null the city and state before the FCC search. If the zip code was not found, then the last found city/state was being inserted into the Daily Log and County Hunter if this option was activated. Updated the Zip Code database with approximately 500 new zip codes. This supporting file should be downloaded from the download web page http://hds.net/win1010dl.htm and put into the FCC folder.

Changed Zip Codes 80020, 80021 and 80038 to the new Broomfield County, Colorado. Some of the Zip Codes in the FCC Database have been transposed or are wrong for other reasons. These Zip Codes are stored in a new file named XZip.TXT and will be searched if the FCC Database Zip Code is not found in the regular Zip Code Database. The city and state are correct but the Zip Code may be wrong - in many cases numbers are transposed. If these records are used, the notation (FCC Zip Data) will be added to the city and state display. The City and State will be entered into Daily Log if this option is checked in the CH/DL Options Menu.

Added routine to Contest, CoHunter, and Daily Log to notify user if a call has two 10X numbers. This might be caused by a vanity call upgrade for a call that belonged to a 1010 member who was a Silent Key or call was lapsed. Changed maximum allowed records in the DB95.DAT Contest Database from 20,000 to 22,000.

Added 5 Guantanamo Bay calls to the Cty_AZ95.TXT file. These calls will trigger the QTH of Guantanamo Bay. Most of the KG4 calls now are in the U.S. Only KG4CD, KG4RC, KG4DX, KG4SD and KG4JY will trigger the Guantanamo Bay DX QTH, but others can be added by the user.

Placed the "FindCountry" routine after the 10X to call conversion if a 10X is entered into the call field. A 10X beginning with "1" and not in the DB95.DAT file would have the QTH of Penguin Island, since the prefix of "1" represents Penguin Island - a deleted DXCC country.

Added routine to automatically place the FCC search results of name, call, street address and QTH on the Windows Clipboard. This can then be pasted in NotePad or other programs. A blank line is added to separate additional pastings.

Certificate Chaser

Added routine (button #19 in Files Menu) to convert the DOS-based EE10 Certificate Program data files, written by NN1J, to comma-delimited files for import into the Win1010 program using the ASCII Import routine. Added option in the ASCII import routine to choose a date for the CH or DL imports if there is no date in the comma delimited file. This would be the case for EE10 data. Added option in the ASCII import routines to import a zero 10X number. If this is done, then the missing 10X number must be edited into the record in the Win1010 module in question. Added option in the ASCII import routine to set all records imported into the County Hunter as being Certificate Chasers. This would be true if the files being imported were from DBTen, EE10, or some other certificate software.

Modified the WACA routine to include the /M for mobile stations. Also now searches the Daily Log Archive file if no record was found in the current Daily Log file. This is used in the "Last Date" worked entry. Modified the WAS routine to search the Daily Log Archive file if no record was found in the current Daily Log file. This is used in the "Last Date" worked entry. Modified the WAS routine to only list one record found in the CH in the optional "Sorted by States" list. If the call appeared in the CH 3 times, then it also appeared in the WAS sorted by state list 3 times. Modified both WAS and WACA routines not to include own 10X record.

Added pop-up question box at end ML import routine to ask user if he wants to record the ML List Date in the List Log. This is normally done in the Certificate Chaser using the Control-L key. There are multiple date options. Added second option to My List View Update Log. The "A" button will only display Actual updates. If nothing was updated then nothing will be shown in the Update Log display.

Added trap to the F5 (display seal file) routine to make sure a chapter had been double-clicked. If a chapter had not been selected before a seal was selected for the F5 routine, then a new blank UPG file would be created that did not have the Chapter Name at the beginning of the UPG file. This would not happen if the normal sequence of events was followed when using the F5 routine. The bogus file created would be named "_xx.UPG" where "xx" was the seal name.

Contest Program

Added a red 'ASCII' button in the Contest Print Menu to create ASCII log and cover sheet files to use in the electronic submission of contest logs. File names will be YourCall.LOG and YourCall.SUM and will be in the Win1010 folder. Modified PostContest Mode to include a date. Old method was to change the date on your computer.

Fixed View Menu option to view Contest Notes. Modified PostContest Mode to include a date. Old method was to change the date on your computer. Removed mobiles and portables from the Check Log routine. Revised AutoFCC insert of County not to insert if a portable or mobile.

Added Control-S routine to sort a contest log by date and time. Added trap to force user to use the ENTER key when entering Call/QTH. The TAB key should not be used since it does not activate the additional search routines, etc. Modified 10X entry field, such that if the 10X if blank (equal = zero) then the VP field is skipped, since a valid 10X is required for a VP. Therefore, a non-10X QSO is filed after hitting ENTER while in the 10X field.

County Hunter

Added option to View Counties Used and Unused for BAR to display results sorted by state. A printout is also available. Added the "CC" and "Note" Indicators to the Import Old DOS County Hunter records routine for someone just getting back into 1010 and updating his DOS program.

Added routine in 'Create PX Index' routine to remove the slash from the prefix. Increased maximum number of prefixes that can be displayed with the VIEW menu. Sometime during the past few updates, the DXCC number was set to zero if the cursor failed to pass through the QTH field as would be the case if the call was in the DB95.DAT database. These records can be manually one-at-a-time corrected with the F8 routine or done all at once. See below.

Added new option to the F8 routine: In the event that you have more than a few records with DXCC = 0, then this option can be used to automatically update all records with the zero DXCC number to the correct number. As with all major file revisions, a CH95.DAT backup should be made first.

Added the CC and Note Indicators to the Import Old DOS County Hunter records routine for someone just getting back into 1010 and updating his DOS program.

Daily Log

Added a FREQ field for those who have requested provisions for using the Daily Log on other bands. 10 Meters will be the default, but other band designators in meters (or Mhz for UHF) can also be used: Accepted values are 160, 80, 75, 40, 30, 20, 17, 15, 12, 10, 6, 2, 220, 440 or 1296. In the existing Daily Log records, the 10 meter band will be assigned to all existing records. For future Daily Log records, 10 meters will also be assigned unless another value is entered into the Freq field. The Daily Log printouts have been changed to include the Freq and a new print option by Frequency has been added. This will only print records that match the chosen frequency to print. ASCII and ADIF outputs are available for this print option. The ASCII and ADIF output options are first, so the printout does not have to be made in order to get the ASCII or ADIF output.

The Print Option #1 ADIF output contains the Frequency as well as the Print Option #2 by Range ASCII outputs. The Certificate Chaser uses the Last Worked Date in the Daily Log in certain routines. Traps have been installed to use only 10 Meter records in this case. Traps have been installed in the auto-transfer-F4 and F8 routines to the County Hunter of new 10X, VP, County, Prefixes or DX, such that it must be on 10 Meters.

The FREQ will remain for the next record and will become the default until changed. If the Daily Log is restarted, then it will default back to 0 Meters. Also the Mode and RST will be saved as the default. The non-printing first character of the call entered problem was resolved. This only happened whenever the F1 key to file was hit while the cursor was in the call field, which would be the case if the ENTER key was hit enough times to return the cursor back to the starting point. Added times, frequency, name and QTH to the Also Worked Display for a call being entered. Added a Confirm question box after hitting the DELETE key in both the Daily Log and County Hunter.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.1d Released April 22, 2002

The CTY_AZ95.TXT file was updated with the Ducie Island DXCC number of 513.

Certificate Chaser

The Control-G routine was modified to skip the Win1010 owner's records. Also the Control-G routine adds an option to use a starting and ending date for QSO's in the Daily Log. The Floppy Backup routine backed up the 3 index files and then checked for remaining floppy disk space. This was changed to check for disk space after each index file. The Delete Seal routine in the ML "Update Names" routine now also deletes the seal in the Family file if there is one.In some cases NotePad was not found when displaying a file in the #8 button Apps display causing a RTE 53 - file not found.

 

What’s New in Win1010 Version 2.1c Released March 31, 2002

Certificate Chaser

When displaying your MyList using the red ML button if you had a zero for your Chapter Number a RTE 55 would happen. A popup window was added to tell you which chapter had the invalid Chapter Number and bypass the error message. Use the F4 key to edit in the proper Chapter Number. Added on Options Menu a check box to activate in the ML routine the changing of a seal point value of zero to one. Added a new routine activated by hitting the Control-G key. This allows you to select up to five seals to submit to the GBTEN chapter at one time. This could also be adapted for use with other chapters. Both an ASCII file and a printout is available. See CC Help file for more info. The SKIP button in the Manual MyList import routine did not advance to the next records in one case. This was fixed. Added the MyList folder to the Backup routines in the Certificate Chaser Backup routines.

 

What's New In Win1010 Version 2.1 Released March 6, 2002

NOTE: Version 2.1a dated March 10, 2002 increases the maximum number of items in the "Accepted List" from 500 to 750. This is the only addition. Version 2.1b dated March 11, 2002 fixed a bug in the Accepted List import routine.

Added to Database Utilities an option to remove the zero 10X number records from the Default Contest Database DB95.DAT. The DB95.DAT file has a maximum capacity of 20,000 records. If these records are removed, then non-10X operators operating the contest for a repeat time will not show up when their call is entered into the Contest Call field. Added a printout routine for the VP Database display under the View VP Menu. This printout will be in four columns of 75 records per column with a total of 300 per page. Therefore, 12 sheets of paper will be required for the printout. It is suggested that the VP column be highlighted with a yellow highlight pen for ease of reading the four columns. Added routine to determine the operating system of the computer and its finding is placed on the opening contest screen. Choices are Win95, Win98, WinME, Win2000 or WinXP. This is used to find the path and location of the Word Pad program, which is used to read the RTF Help files. If the WordPad program is not in the usual places, then a pop-up message will advise to find it and move a copy to the C:\Program Files\Accessories\ folder. If this folder does not exist then it can be created.

Certificate Chaser

Added Auto-List Updater by using the MyList ASCII file. This new routine will auto-import and update the Chapter and Seal files in a matter of a few seconds for a "MyList" received from other Win1010 users. To access this new feature, hit the red ML button and choose "NO". The blank Chapter and Seal files were updated to include only the active Chapters. Several Chapters or Seals were misspelled and these were corrected as well a large number of new seals added. (Chapters = 117 and Seals = 638). Added additional option to Red Button #5. This will offer an option to display all the Certificate Chasers in the County Hunter file with the CC = "Y" and who are Win1010 users. The CHUser.TXT file contains a list of 10X's of the Win1010 County Hunter users. The list is sorted by Callsign and will make a 6 column printout with 65 records per column. Page max = 390.

Contest

Added Control-N to Contest for "No VP field" during contest. This can be used by those not having a VP number or those who do not desire to save the VP during the contest. This will save one key stroke per record during the contest. Make a 1000 QSO's and save 1000 key strokes. In the Contest Export to County Hunter routine for CW and Mobiles, a station with a zero 10X number was being exported and had to be deleted later. This was fixed. The TAB Indexes were modified so that the TAB will move the cursor among the various contest fields for editing purposes. Shift-TAB will move in reverse. The Enter Key should be used after entering data. Use the TAB key only for editing. In the Export Contest Log VP numbers to County Hunter, there was a case where the VP number could be exported more then once. If the County Hunter had more than one occurrence of the record with no VP number, which might be the case when working a station fixed, then again mobile or CW all with no VP number. In this case the VP would be imported that many times. This was fixed with an exit line of code after the first match. There was another case where a duplicate VP might be exported. The contest log VP export routine was rewritten to prevent this. The address label printing routine was modified to now print in two or three columns. The Tab button was changed to Tabs and now allows for user-set tabs for all the two/three columns. For the three column format, the name and call sign are checked for length and if too long to fit the label, the callsign is left off. Tab number 1 is used in the QSL printer. The default is zero. The choice of two or three columns will be offered when the Print button is hit.

Daily Log

Made the heading titles comma delimited to match the data in the Daily Log export by comma delimited file.

 

What's New In Win1010 Version 2.0b Released January 22, 2002

Added "Work the 40's Numbers in 2002" Contest display and printout to the Daily Log Print Menu - Red Button #7. The display can also be used with the County Hunter records. There are a total of four displays and printouts available. For the actual Contest Log submission, you will need to click on the Print button when the display shows the "40's" worked in the Daily Log during 2002. The "All" display for the County Hunter and Daily Log is only for information and will show how may total "40's" you have worked in the past as recorded in the County Hunter or Daily Log files. Only "40's" worked during the year of 2002 will be counted for the Work the "40's" Numbers in 2002 Contest. The printout will be in two columns with 160 records per page.

Certificate Chaser

Added additional date checking line for Red Button #1 ASCII output to insure all records are checked in the date period requested. In certain cases, some records were being skipped. Shortened the LastWorked Date on CC CoHunter info display to LWD. On some monitors the date was not at the first tab stop.

County Hunter

Added ADIF output for the County Hunter ch95.dat file. This option is in the County Hunter Print Menu under "Print Data From CH File" option #1. The file name is CoHunter.ADI and will be in the Win1010 folder. Added popup disclaimer about using the QSL=2 indicator to create the DX Index file. Added Sorted by Call and Sorted by 10X additional display options to the F11 Check 10X routine. The Daily Log Print Menu has an option on the 2002 Work the Numbers Contest to search the County Hunter file for all records worked with "40" in the 10-10 number. This is for info only and the "Display of 2002 Contacts Only" using the Daily Log info should be used in submitting the 2002 Work the Numbers Contest Log.

If the QTH is placed into the QTH field by the contest database (db95.dat) then the QTH field will be skipped when hitting ENTER at the City field. An example would be KH6OE in KY. In past versions, when the cursor was moved to the QTH field, the Auto-DX-Country routine would enter Hawaii based on the KH6 prefix. The Hawaii would have to be edited back to KY. You can still use the Auto-DX-Country routine by placing the cursor into the QTH field. If it is a prefix that has more than one choice the the Multiple Prefix Window will popup.

Daily Log

Added ADIF output for the Daily Log log.dat file. This option is in the Daily Log Print Menu option #1. The file name is DailyLog.ADI and will be in the Win1010 folder. Revised "Also Worked in Daily Log" display to start with the latest contact, then the Archive file if it exists. The Edit routine was modified when checking for the existence of a Note File, to check for the existence of the file name instead of checking for a file length more than zero. This caused a RTE 53 'file not found' error for one user who backed up his win1010 folder but not the lognotes folder. Separate New County, New 10X, New VP, New Prefix and New DX Country flags are now being used for the auto-F4 filing from the Daily Log to the County Hunter. In past versions, only one flag was set, but could be reset to zero if a later field was edited and was not a new item.

If the QTH is placed into the QTH field by the contest database (db95.dat) then the QTH field will be skipped when hitting ENTER at the City field. An example would be KH6OE in KY. In past versions, when the cursor was moved to the QTH field, the Auto-DX-Country routine would enter Hawaii based on the KH6 prefix. The Hawaii would have to be edited back to KY. You can still use the Auto-DX-Country routine by placing the cursor into the QTH field. If it is a prefix that has more than one choice then the Multiple Prefix Window will pop-up. Added "Work the 40's Numbers in 2002" Contest display and printout to the Daily Log Print Menu. The display can also be used with the County Hunter records.

 

What's New In Win1010 Version 2.0a Released October 31, 2001

Modified GetCountry Routine to have popup window for those DX prefixes that can be used with 2 to 5 different countries. Current prefixes that will trigger the popup country selector window are: 3D2, 3Y, CE0, CY0, FO0, FR, FT, HK0, JD1, KH5, OH0, PY0, SV, VE1, VK9, VK0, VP8, VU, VU7, and ZK1. This routine is not used with the DB10 import routines or the ASCII import routines at the present time. The CTY_AZ95.TXT file was updated. Added Broomfield County, Colorado to the counties.TXT file and added new county to all County View and Printout routines.

Contest

Reworked Export Contest Log to County Hunter routines to include the multiple DX country popup window. Fine-tuned the export routines to allow for more accurate bar indicators assignment. Hard-coded the Arial font for the condensed log printout. Depending on what you last printed, the font may have defaulted to Courier. Changed condensed log printout from 146 per page to 140 per page. In some cases of very wide calls such as WA0WWW/VE8, the allowed space is too small and the balance of the line will wrap to the next line. This will allow room for several line-wraps per page without leaving off the page recaps at the bottom of the page.

County Hunter

Fixed the F6 key to only display the call in question. In the past, KM5M would find KM5M, KM5Mx and KM5Mxx. Modified the F5 routine to move the record found to the top of the log display window. By double-clicking on the other calls found, the log display will move to that call. Then if you want to edit it, just double click on the record number in the log display window. Modified the "Create DX Index" routine to have option to use the popup Multiple DX Country list or to use the DXCC number already in the CH95.DAT records. The later choice should be used if you have deleted countries in your County Hunter file, provided you have the correct ARRL DXCC number assigned to the record.

Modified the VIEW DX Index routine to display sorted by DXCC number or by Country name. Modified View VP Submitted with a "Y" to produce an ASCII file named "UsedVP.TXT" every time the display is shown. This file is over-written each time. Modified the VIEW DX Index routine to display sorted by DXCC number or by Country name and modified routine to make an ASCII file named DX_Index.TXT every time either option is run. This file is over-written each time. Modified View DX Countries worked to produce an ASCII file named DX_List.TXT every time the view display routine is run.

Daily Log

The Control-C routine that has been in the Contest and County Hunter programs was added to the Daily Log. This key combo will display the County Selection Window.

 

What's New In Win1010 Version 2.0 Released September 27, 2001

The "Get Country Name" routine was modified to accept up to 6 digits for the prefix. This will allow entering calls that are exceptions to the rule and it will insert the correct country. The CTY_AZ95.TXT file was updated by the DX Manager N5MT to include some new DXCC countries and exceptions to the rule. The maximum file size for the CTY_AZ95.TXT file was increased to 1200 to allow for specific calls to be entered that are exceptions to the rule. This updated file is included in the Version 2.0 Update package as well as updated Help files.

Contest

Added fixed-space font printing for log exports to CH. In the past, the font used in the printout was the last font used in the printer. Now the font is set by code to Courier. Page numbering was also added to printouts. Revised "Merge Two Contest Databases" to compare 10X numbers instead of the call signs. Revised the Find Database dupes by 10X number to include the current call assigned to the 10X number. This will make it easier to determine which of the records contain the current data. Updated Contest Names for log printouts to include years 2002 and 2003.

County Hunter

Added sorted by DXCC number display/printout for VIEW All DX Countries Worked Display. Added routine to include user's VP number on the VP application heading as per request from VP Award Manager. The PX 100 BAR printout routine stopped working after a recent update. This was fixed. The screen (and info) was erased before the printout and it should have been erased and cleared after the printout. The VP WAS display and printout selection routine will now give you the option to only use records with QSL indicator set to "2". This has been a feature in the 10X WAS display for a while but was not included in the VP WAS application. An error routine was added to allow you to skip a record if it has bad data. Added a trap to prevent letters to be entered for the QSL indicator. Only 0, 1, 2 are allowed. Revised 10X BAR application printout to allow space for Award Manager's "Approval Stamp".

Daily Log

Reset NewCounty Flag to 'NO' in GetLogCounty routine before the selection of a county name. If a mobile's home county was a new county and the mobile county was not a new county, then the first NewCounty flag was not changed. This could lead to already worked counties being auto transferred to the County Hunter from the Daily Log as a new county. Also reset NewCountry Flag to 'NO' in GetCountry name routine before the selection. Reset the 'RunAutoF4' Flag to 'NO' after filing the record. Changed maximum number of contacts in Daily Log to 22,000. Added a Daily Log Utility Menu which provides for transferring records from the Daily Log Log.Dat file to an Archive file named Log_Arch.Dat. This Archive file has a capacity of 40,000 records and may be increased later. This menu is under the "Utilities" button at the top of the screen. When a call is entered into the Daily Log, the Archive file is searched first and if any records are found, the record number will begin with an "A#" meaning they were found in the Archive file. Records found in the current Log.Dat file will be marked with a "DL#". The F6 routine will search the Archive before searching the current Log.Dat file. The F8 and F10 routines do not access the Archive file. This applies also to the Daily Log Print Menu.

 

What's New In Win1010 Version 1.9a Released June 29, 2001

This is a minor update adding several requested items and a bug fix. There has been options added to create ASCII files from three of the County displays for use in emailing county list. This is the same info available from the display or printout. If you start Win1010 in the Daily Log mode, hitting several key combinations would popup a window saying that the Daily Log is already running. The work-around would be to just start Win1010 in the default Contest mode. This update fixes that problem.

 

What's New In Win1010 Version 1.9 Released April 19, 2001

When changing QTH or Call in the Options Misc Menu, added an attribute-setting routine if the user_95.dat file is write protected, . Some CD burners will set the Attribute of all files on the CD to 'Write Only'.

Added a new Help Menu item to display this "What’s New?" file which is in the RTF format. The entire Revisions file (Rev.TXT) can still be read from the VIEW Menu

Modified the full setup program to create the blank folders that was normally created whenever the Certificate Chaser was first run. The blank chapters and seals are also unzipped into the new folders in the main setup routine. On some computers, they may not be unzipped and will be unzipped the first time the Certificate Chaser is run as indicated by a popup message.

Contest Program

Revised Contest Log Comma Delimited export not to have any trailing blank spaces. Added Mode indicator at end of record. Removed false requirement to have a contest log loaded for ADIF import.

County Hunter Program

A MAJOR CHANGE in the BAR indicators is being introduced. In the past, 'Y' and 'N' were used to indicate whether a record had been used for a BAR Award. "Y" meant YES it had and "N" meant NO it had not. In this old method, the 'Y' also referred to the 2nd, 3rd, etc occurrence of a 10X, VP, etc and was confusing. The various VIEW displays of all records submitted with a 'Y' could include dupes if a 2nd, 3rd, etc., occurrence was also marked with the 'Y' meaning that it was not available for use for a BAR Award. The new indicator convention will now use the 'U' indicator to indicate that a record is Unavailable or Unusable for a BAR Award. For new users this change will be automatic, but for existing users, an indicator update routine will have to be run once. These routines are on the 'Reset Indicators' menu in the County Hunter Utilities Menu.

Revised 'Reset Indicators' form to include an option to update the 10X, VP, CW and Mobile BAR Indicators to 'U' for the 2nd, 3rd, etc., occurrence. An ASCII file is created for future reference, if needed. These four routines should be run by all current users of Win1010. A popup message was added to the program start-up to remind old users to run these four Indicator Update routines. It should only be shown one time.

Added a Scorebox that pops up whenever the County Hunter is run. It can be removed by clicking on the Scorebox. It can be shown again by clicking on the 'SCORE' button. There is an option in the CH/DL Options Menu to update the score with every new record. The default is OFF. This Score Box can also be seen in the Daily Log.

When the F5 key is hit, the first matching call was displayed, but now any other matches are also displayed in the small display window along with the CH record number. To display additional records with the same call, hit the F5 key again and enter the next displayed record number. After the first "hit", the balance of the CH file is searched by 10X. This will list any new vanity calls as well as mobile operation.

The 10X validation routine was reworked. A mobile was not being recognized as the valid call and sometimes false warnings were given. Other cases also resulted in a false warning. There is an option to check in the CH/DL Options Menu to turn this Off or On. If it was turned off to avoid these warnings, then it should now be turned back on.

The VIEW "Unused VP Numbers for BAR Award" has been modified to add an option to view the list in a sorted display. Also a printout option for this new display was added.

Added Option in CH/DL Options Menu to enter the date you received your VP Number. This will be used in the VP QSO validation routine to make sure you are not entering a VP QSO before you received your own VP number. This date is also used in the View "All Worked VP Numbers", View "All Unsubmitted VP Numbers" and the 100 VP BAR Application. No QSO's will be displayed or used before this date. If you don't know your exact date, an approximate date can be found in KB0ON's MastrVP program or email K4HAV. The use of this VP Date is optional.

A note was added on the popup box for the membership expiration date to enter '10Life' for a lifetime membership. When the application is printed the date will be printed as 10X-LIFE. This applies to all Awards applications. A six digit number such as 999999 could also be used to signify lifetime membership. It would be printed as 99-99-99.

Added a new VIEW Menu item for the Sorted VP Unused Display. Now there are menu items for the sorted by VP display and the display in the order that the VP numbers were entered into the CH. There is a printout option for both menu choices.

Daily Log

If entire Daily Log was being displayed, editing by hitting the F5 key, filed the correct edit; however the edited record was shown on the screen display in the wrong place. Hitting the REF to refresh the display corrected the display. This has been changed to only show the edited record if it was edited by double-clicking on the record. The F5 edit routine will not show the change until the REF button is hit.

Added additional records in Daily Log when F5 key was hit to the small info display window.

The 10X validation routine was reworked. A mobile was not being recognized as the valid call and sometimes false warnings were given. There is an option to check in the CH/DL Options Menu to turn this Off or On.

Certificate Chaser

Fixed the F4/F5 printout leaving off the last record. The mis-alignment of the Edit info in the F4 routine was fixed.

Fixed the WAS ASCII output file. The heading had WACA instead of WAS.

Finally found the sequence of events that would cause a negative new point value which has been reported on rare occasions. While editing Chapter info, if you decided not to proceed with the edit and hit the CLEAR button, the Used Points was not reset to zero and this value was used if a new entry was added. Hitting the F1 key to file the record would reset all values to zero. The new point value is found by subtracting the used value from the total value. Later the zeroing of the new points would make the used value the correct value.

Changed the WAS and WACA Search routine to start at the end of the file and go backward. This will find the last date worked. Also added an option to start search with an user-designated starting date. An option to allow duplicate stations for two or more states was added to the WAS Award. Since the calls found are in order that they were entered, it is possible that a mobile station might be the first found in several states. This option (if answered ‘NO’) forces the WAS routine to find another call and not to use the mobile station again.
