Setting VUCC Award Objectives

On the Awards tab of DXKeeper's Config window, checking the Realtime Award Progress box in the VUCC Bands & Modes panel enables realtime award tracking for the VUCC family of awards administered by the ARRL. With this box checked, the band and mode boxes in the VUCC Bands & Modes panel determine

  1. which callsigns are highlighted as needed in DXKeeper's Main and Capture windows and in WinWarbler's QSO Info panel (via bold red font)

  2. for what QSOs DXKeeper generates an outgoing QSL card/label soliciting confirmation when you invoke the AddNeeded operation with the VUCC box checked in the Awards panel on the QSL Configuration window's General tab

  3. whether or not DXKeeper prints Please! or Pse! on generated QSL cards and labels respectively

  4. which QSOs are considered by DXKeeper's QSL Aging report

  5. which newly-imported QSOs DXKeeper reports as confirming or verifying needed gridsquare-bands and gridsquare-satellite combinations
  6. which newly-received LotW confirmations DXKeeper flags as confirming needed gridsquare-bands and gridsquare-satellite combinations
  7. which Spot Database Entries SpotCollector highlights as needed and announces audibly, with a G in the Needed column

Note: if you are using SpotCollector and change your DXing objectives, the "need colorization" of pre-existing Spot Database Entries will still reflect your previous DXing objectives. To update the "need colorization" of these entries, open the the Spot Database tab of SpotCollector's Config window, and click the Recomp button in the lower-right corner.
