Tips to use utlities

There is no menu bar in some utilities. Right click on the window to show menu.

a.       I recommend you to setup a utility as one of utility programs in Logger32.

b.      Almost all utilities should be run together with Logger32. Utility communicate to Logger32 using Logger32 external inteface. External interface allow to use max 5 utilies at same time. If connection is established successfully then you see “Connected to Logger32-n”, “L32-n”  etc in the window or pull down menu. (n=1 to 5)

c.       Logger32 should run always as administrator. This is suggested in Logger32 Help file.

If Logger32 run as administrator then utility program should run also as administrator. Otherwise utility does not work correctly.

If Logger32 run as NOT administrator then utility program should run also as NOT administrator. Otherwise utility does not work correctly.

d.      If utility runs as compatible mode (Windows XP SP3 etc) you get a little diffrent appearance. I reccomend you to set Windows XP SP3 compatible mode.

2) Make BandPlan folder (or BandPlanMini folder) anywhere you prefer. Copy BandPlan.exe (or BandPlanMini.exe) in the folder.

3) Unzip downloaded zip file (one of BMP set). You have BMP folder (contains 160.bmp, 80a.bmp, 80b.bmp etc). Copy BMP folder in the BandPlan folder (or BandPlanMini folder)

 

<How to run BandPlan>

It should read BandPlanMini below if you install BandPlanMini.

1) Configure BandPlan.exe as one of utility program to run from Utility menu in Logger32 .

a. On the Logger32 Menu Bar select: Tools/Utility Program Setup to open the Utility Program menu setup window.

b. On an available line enter the item BandPlan and with the Browse button on the right go to the Logger32 folder, open the BandPlan folder then click the BandPlan.exe file to set the link.

c. If you want the BandPlan utility to autostart, check the box to the left on the BandPlan item line then select Apply.

2) Run BandPlan. You will find the BandPlan window at the top left of your screen.

3) Resize the window to view the entire map then drag to any location on your screen.

4) Right click the BandPlan top title bar and you can select the font style, font size, title bar color and freq format.

5) Click “X” to close BandPlan.

 

<How to use BandPlan>

It should read BandPlanMini below if you install BandPlanMini.

1) Run BandPlan.

2) The BandPlan window should now display the current radio frequency and mode. Mouse click anywhere on the BandMap. The radio will change to that frequency and mode. If you click an out of band location on the BandMap you will get a "Not supported frequency" message. It is very important that you have edited your Logger32 Bands and Modes database for your QTH.

On the Logger32 Menu Bar select: Tools/Setup Bands & Modes. Here you may edit the Bands, Modes and frequency limits for your QTH. Refer to the Logger32 Help Files. When you t une the radio frequency the BandPlan map will automatically change to the correct map when you reach an active band listed in your Bands & Modes database.

 

<How to make your BMP file>

At first I recommend you to use one of provided BMP files which is contained BMP set above. When you are familiar to BandPlan then try to modify existing BMP files or create your own BMP files. Windows Paint, PhotoShop or something similar will work for you. a. Picture size must be 600 x 60 pixels (width x height)

Frequency span must be 500KHz. 0KHz(or 500KHz) should start at 50 pixels from left side of picture and 500KHz (or 0KHz) should end at 550 pixels from left side of picture.

 

If you have any difficulty then do not hesitate to send me email. We may help you to modify/create your bmp files.

Each utility works together with Logger32 ver3.45.0 and after. It does not work as stand-alone. Please read ReadMe.doc in each package first before you use. I am sorry but Lookup_QRZCQ_XML is discontinued.

 

Lookup_QRZ_XML ver3.11 

QRZ XML service is not free.

 

 

 

Lookup_HamQTH_XML ver1.96   

HamQTH XML service is free, however you must be registered. This is much faster than their ADIF service.

 

 

 

Lookup_HamQTH_ADIF ver1.94   

HamQTH ADIF service is free, however you must be registered.

CheckColor ver2.4  

 

CheckColor is an external program which reads Logger32.ini (or your ini) and shows a color box for most of highlight/background color you configure.
As you know Logger32 provides many choices of highlight/background color. Can you always understand what each color means when you see the Logbook Page Window, Award Table or DX Spot Window, etc? Probably not. This will help you!

     ChecSpotPlus 1.26   

 

 

 

a.       It shows DX spots received from Logger32.

b.      It shows reference number and different backcolor for IOTA, RDA, WWFF and DME award in column “Plus”
It is not easy to populate reference number while reading comment. There are many patterns you type reference number. This is not 100%, however I think 80% will be OK.

c.       It shows IOTA accepted status in column “A” (Y: accepted, N: not accepted, empty: not added in IOTA database)
You must download your myqsos.csv and copy it in CheckSpotPlus folder to use this feature.

d.      It shows “not valid for DXCC” as “X” in “X” column.

e.       Column “Comment” can be hidden.

f.       Each column width can be adjusted and restored at re-start.

 

CheckSpot ver2.6.7  

 

CheckSpot is useful to check how the callsign you are interested has been spotted. (Freq ? Mode ? and Time ?)
It works ONLY together with Logger32 (after ver 3.35.0)


1) It receives DX spot adif from Logger32 when Logger32 displays DX spot in DXSpot window.
2) It saves received adif in CheckSpot.txt which is created in the same folder as CheckSpot.exe. (Append mode)
3) You can select save mode. (after ver2.5.2)
a. All: All spots received are saved in CheckSpot.txt
b. Only spots with highlighted color: Only highlighted color spots (may be your interested spots) are saved.
c. Only spots with specified callsigns: Only sots with specified callsigns are saved. You can specify any callsigns, HK0NA, 3D2YA, A35AY etc etc.
Specified callsigns are saved in CheckSpotCall.txt in the same folder as CheckSpot.exe.
4) If you put a specific callsign in callsign box (e.g. T32C, YJ0VK, OJ0X etc) then it shows matched data in the table reading CheckSpot.txt.
5) This table is refreshed when it receives DX spot adif which has a exactly matched callsign as one entered in callsign box.
note: It does not refresh if you put callsign with wild card !.
6) Each line is back-colored with same color as in Logger32 DXSpot window.
7) Left-clicking any spot in the table transfers callsign in Logbook Entry window and changes Radio Freq/Mode.
8) Aux table is provided.
