Removing Duplicate QSOs from the Currently Open Log

This procedure checks each QSO in your log to see whether any other QSO in your log that exactly matches its Callsign, Band, Mode, and QSO Begin Date and Time (to the second), and makes it easy to delete any duplicates that are discovered.

  1. if the Main window's QSL tab shows that the QSL Queue contains one or more entries, either complete the QSLing operation in progress, or abandon it by clicking the Clear button; do not proceed until the QSL Queue is emptry.

  2. on the Config window's Log tab, click the Log panel's Backup button (to make a backup copy of your log in case you don't like the results of this procedure)

  3. on the Main window's Log QSOs tab,

    1. click the Filter panel's X button (to ensure that all of your QSOs are present in the Log Page Display)

    2. click the Adv command button to display the Advanced Filters, Sorts, and Modifiers window (the Adv command button is located above the Log Page Display, not in the Sort panel)

  4. in the Advanced Filters, Sorts, and Modifiers window's Duplicates panel, click the Filter button; since this operation will clear the Select item in every logged QSO and then set the Select item to Y in each duplicate QSO, you will be prompted to confirm that you wish to proceed.

  5. if you don't care about choosing which of a pair of identical QSOs to delete, then on the Main window's Log QSOs tab, depress the CTRL key while clicking the Delete button

  6. if you'd prefer to select which of a pair of identical QSOs to delete, possibly moving information (e.g. from Name or Address items) from one QSO to the other before deleting a duplicate, then

    1. on the Main window's Log QSOs tab,

      1. click the Filter panel's X button to remove all Log Page Display filtering

      2. set the Sort panel to UTC

    2. if the APP_DXKEEPER_SELECT item is not visible in the Log Page Display, add a column for this item

    3. review the QSOs in the Log Page Display, setting or clearing the Select items of those QSOs you do or don't wish to have deleted; double-clicking a QSO to filter the Log Page Display to show only QSOs with that same callsign can be helpful when performing this review.

    4. on the Main window's Log QSOs tab,

      1. click the Filter panel's Sel button, and verify that the QSOs now visible in the Log Page Display are the ones you wish to delete; note that if no QSOs are visible, that means no duplicate QSOs were found.

      2. depress the CTRL key while clicking the Delete button
