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!

 

 

CheckSpotPlus ver1.50     Testing
 It shows DX spots received from Logger32 and 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.

 
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.
 
It shows “not valid for DXCC” as “X” in “X” column.  Column “Comment” can be hidden.  Each column width can be adjusted and restored at re-start.

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)
