I also have my B4's as white on a black background.  I set those colors in JTAlert and sent over to WSJTX.  73, Herb WB8ASI

Phil,

there is no before colour. The WSJT-X decode highlighting includes colours for new calls and new calls on band. If a call is worked before then the default CQ colour will be shown.

Did you have to wipe the drive and reload everything, or did you have a backup to restore?

If you had to wipe and reload, you probably don't have the wsjtx_log.adi file with all your previous QSOs.    Unless you can recreate from a logger, or elsewhere, you won't get the B4 color.

Yes. DXKeeper is a wonderful logger, and I've used it as my general logger since getting back on the air in 2003. I do exactly as Dave suggests, exporting my contest logs to DXKeeper after each contest, using DXKeeper to interact with LOTW, eQSL, and ClubLog, which it does almost automagically. I also find several of the other apps in Dave's DXLab integrated suite of programs useful. And they are all bug-free, well supported, and FREE! Thanks very much, Dave!

None of these are contesting applications. N1MM Plus Logger is contesting software, and integrates with WSJT-X. WriteLog is also contesting software, and it MAY integrate with WSJT-X. N1MM Logger Plus is Freeware. WriteLog is not. You will need one of these to get the Worked B4 function relative to the contest and it's rules (for example, some are Worked B4 per band and or mode, some are Worked B4 on any band and/or mode.

Hi All,

 

As I have seen a few threads regarding adi files merge questions. 

I am just finishing an enhancement to my Alltext.exe program to facilitate 

appending ADIF records from one adi file to another. The program 

will take care so that no duplicates will exists in the destination file no matter 

how many times the same files are used. Should be ready before the weekend.

Hi Radi,

Just use any text editor such as Notepad. You need to open using that text editor program as you got Adifmaster installed. Cut and paste or copy and paste as appropriate from one log file to another one. Save the result so that Windows don’t add .txt to the filename or remove .txt by renaming the combined file.

Remember to check that you have only a single header (or none) at the beginning of the file.

Of course that method may be more complicated, if the QSOs you want amend are distributed all over the source file.

I think that also adif generate by the Adifmaster will be ok. You may take copies of the adif files and experiment by those.

Hi Carl,
Thanks for the response. You said ADIF Master is not needed. But then which application to use to open the wsjt_log.adi , cut QSOs from certain date blocks and create two new .adi files, one containing remaining QSOs and other cut and pasted QSO groups.
Now, Windows opens the log with ADIF Master as default application, but I am not sure that if I save logs from ADIF Master if the resulting logs would be legitimate for wsjtx !
Please clarify.

If you're using a built-in WSJT-X contest mode, then just let it build

However, if this is a 'local' contest not built-in to the program, doing
what you have listed for the log is the way to go, but still adjust

Hi Andy,

Yes, the mp_* routines are there to do slow-but sure multiple-precision arithmetic.  This is necessary because we need to save a 71-bit result of the packing operation.

I just wrote a simple Fortran test program that you can use to help yourself figure out what is going on.  You can download it here, compile it for yourself, and then work out how to re-write it in C (or whatever).
