The new full version contains all components needed for a new installation or  to upgrade Swisslog (only for version 5.2 or higher). It also includes the documentation and help in English, Spanish, German and French as well as other components that previously were needed to download them separately (background world map images, some reports and QSL formats and audio files for the DX-Cluster sound announcements)

After installing Swisslog go to HELP > ABOUT… > REGISTER. Type your callsign and press “Add registration“. Please read Quick Start and Setup

 

IMPORTANT: It’s highly advisable to disable temporarily any antivirus software before installing Swisslog. Also add an exception to Swisslog in your antivirus and firewall after installation. Most  tend to block or slow down normal functioning of Swisslog.

 

WINDOWS VISTA/7/8/10/11 USERS: There is no need to run Swisslog as administrator UNLESS you are installing Swisslog in the “Program Files” folder instead the default “Swisslog” root folder (NOT RECOMMENDED!) or you are running as administrator any of the associated programs used with Swisslog (i.e: OmniRig, Ham Radio de Luxe, DX Lab commander, MixW, FLDIGI, WSJT-X, etc.). In such event, please read carefully the Installation procedure!

 

Trusted QSL v2.6.3 (needed to synchronise with Logbook of the World)

In order to keep your Swisslog logbook synchronised with Logbook of the World you need to install the Trusted QSL software. Read the program help (or the online documentation) to know how to configure it.

 

Changelog:

  • NEW: LoTW/eQSL synch: now you can display the QSLs received during the synchronization in the new QSL List tab.

  • NEW: S-Meter function: added support for FT-1000MP, FT-1000, FT-990, FT-920, FT-900 and FT-890. Only tested on FT-1000MP. I will appreciate feedback from users having the other transceivers.

  • NEW: Sound announcements in Dx Message and DX Alert windows: Once you have configured the sound options, now you can start / stop de sound announcements for the incoming spots by pressing the speaker button or by selecting the appropiated option in the pop-up menu.

  • NEW: Transceiver control for TCI: now spots sent to Panorama from Band Maps includes: spotter, comments and if lotw/eqsl user or dupe (if Show dupes option is enabled).

  • NEW: MMSSTV YONIQ Support: enabling the TCP (only JTDX) option in WSJT-X, JTDX UDP settings Swisslog will be able to read QSO saved from MMSSTV YONIQ. Version 1.13.2 Alpha required: http://radiogalena.es/wp-content/uploads…Alpha3.zip

  • NEW: Added POTA statistic on P_DIPL19 field. After setting a POTA reference, QTH Locator will be automatically set to the POTA locator defined in the POTA official list. Added also an option to update automatically POTA references list.

  • NEW: Added JA_WAKU statistic on P_DIPL3 field for JA stations (Ku Award).

  • NEW: Added new modes DMR, VARA HF, VARA SATELLITE, VARA FM 1200 and VARA FM 9600

  • NEW: when minimizing the main Swisslog window, standalone windows (if any) won’t be minimized. Now all standalone windows have its own taskbar button. This way user will have a better control over all Swisslog windows.

  • NEW: Password fields: now all password fields are displayed with asteriks. There is a button beside the field to show / hide password.

  • Changed: applied some internal changes to fulfill current ADIF version 3.1.3.

  • Changed: LoTW/eQSL synch: error/warnings are now displayed in plain text instead of rich text. Rich text added a lot of extra time in the synchronization process to create the report in case user gets many errors/warnings.

  • Corrected: Rotor interface: continuous violation error messages if turning rotor and no window open in Swisslog.

  • Corrected: Club Log: it was not possible to delete QSOs in realtime if band was lower than meters (cm, mm, etc).

  • Corrected: QSO Entry – Activate/Deactivate Digital program button: no action if clicking on the connection status led.

  • Corrected: S-Meter function: under some transceiver control options, specially Yaesu transceivers, Swisslog seemed frozen or responding too slow. Kenwood TS-850S, TS-940 and TS-950S didn’t work.

  • Corrected: Power Output: recallibrated for better accuracy for ICOM transceivers.

  • Corrected: Transceiver control for Kenwood: frequency and mode was not updated when changing VFO unless user moves dial.

  • Corrected: Transceiver control for Kenwood: added all DATA modes to FT-890 and FT-990.

  • Corrected: Transceiver control for ICOM: if the “Scan for TX Address” option was checked, Swisslog crashed. Now when checked and CI-V transceive radio parameter is ON, Swisslog is able to detect the Hex Address automatically. Othewise user will have to enter it manually. Because the CI-V transceive can be ON or OFF, now it’s also possible to set a different polling value for every transceiver 1 to 4 in the “Time between two queries” field.

  • Corrected: Transceiver control: if entering options for any transceiver different than the active one and exiting without configuring any transceiver (default DDE option), current transceiver was not active.

  • Corrected: ClubLog upload: satellite QSOs were not recognised properly in Club Log because the SAT_NAME field was missing.

  • Corrected: Rotor interface for PSTROTATOR: band selection was ignored and didn’t work.

  • Corrected: was not possible to add manually a new satellite in the Satellite name field.

  • Corrected: WSJT-X UDP link: if Swisslog is linked via UDP with the main instance and user is editing QSO, if WSJT-X is sending a Log QSO request, Swisslog shows 2 pending QSO requests. When user stop editing Swisslog saves 2 QSOs with the same station. Also happenned that Swislsog was not handling properly the queue of pending Log QSO requests under this scenario, missing QSOs.

  • Corrected: Update FOC member number: FOC number was cut to the first 3 digits for members having a number higher than 999.

  • Corrected: QSO Entry: If double clicking on the Region field and there is no associated statistic, INF_WAS was always displayed. Also the INF_WAS was displayed in certain statistics having associated a particular info table.

  • Corrected: Rotor Interface window: ” Value is not valid for this field type” if using a Prosistel rotor.

  •  Corrected: Prosistel rotor: beaming can’t be changed if setting a preset with the manual controller. Improved code for Prosistel.

  • Corrected: Update AGCW member list: AGCW has changed the link to download the full list of members. Last member in the list was not imported.

  • Corrected: S-Meter and DX Alerts windows: latest window position was not saved.

  • Updated country table. THANK YOU VERY MUCH to Erik, EI4KF.
  • Updated: 30MDG, AGCW, ARLHS, BCA, CLUBLOG, CWOPS, DCE, DCI, DEE, DEFE, DERESP, DFCF, DIG, DME, DMVE, DOK, EA QRP, EPC, eQSL, ERC, FISTS, FOC, FT8DMC, HSC, IOTA, LYNX, LOTW, MF, NDG, POTA, RDA, SKCC, SOTA, TBDXC, TEN TEN, URE, USI, WCA and WFF statistics on 12/06/2022
