DX Code of Conduct, PLEASE use it, we will all work allot more DX if "We All" follow it --> http://dx-code.org
LoTW & eQSL uploads are usually done daily. I'm now using DXkeeper as my main log repository. Clublog uploads are automated and sent shortly after each QSO. Contest logs sent a few days after completion of the test.
PREVIOUS CALLS: KE1HA, M0EHA, KN4YU, KC4QPQ, NNN0NHA (Navy MARS, Norfolk VA.)
CLUBS: 30MDG-3546, EPC-11101, DMC-2984

DARC-DCL: Just started working on my DARC Contest Logbook (DCL) with a focus on collecting DOK's & SDOK's for the DLD - Germany Diploma, along with the EU DX Diploma. Log submission and verification is very easy if you use eQSL & LoTW, as you can import from LoTW, and / or send QSO's from the DCL interface within eQSL. In addition to electronic submission, there is a manual entry method for paper cards recieved. DOK's are assigned by DARC staff by Districts & Chapters to operators who join the DARC. See link below for the District List & Map (A) thru (Y), note (j) is intentionally missing. To see the Chapters for each District, click on the area you'd like to view and select "Ortsverbande or Chapter if your translating pages". From there you can explore each chapter. Each has their own website on DARC, which makes for nice reading. Im about 75% complete in making an extensive Excell tracking system, when complete, I will post it here for those interested. There are several major WW contests that can automatically accredited towards awards: (WAE; CW, RTTY and SSB), (CQ; WWDXSSB, WWDXCW, WPXSSB and WPXCW). (DRCG; DLDXRTTY) see link below for the full list.
30MDG: 30M is a great band and the 30m Digital Group has put together a nice package of "ALL FREE" awards, along with the u30 Software Package for Automated Awards Tracking & Submission. The software simply parses an ADIF file, and you submit completed objectives, very simple. After 4 years, I've completed about 50% of the 111 or so awards. Needless to say, some are very challanging, some just take time, and others are a bit of a search & work mission, as the criteria for completion is unknown until you've worked them :-) Check it out, it's allot of fun !!
WSJT-JT65/JT9: by Joe K1JT is well known in the VHF EME, Meteor Scatter worlds, but JT65 is relatively new (last couple years) on the MF / HF bands. I've taken a keen interest in these modes of late, and there is allot of development happening such as the newly released JT9 mode and several others. A few ports of WSJT exist. A commonly used application called JT65HF by Joe W6CQZ (not currently under develeopment by the original author) and a new port JT65HF-Comfort v3.3 by DL3CVO in addition too several very popular add on applications such as JT-Alerts & JT-Macros by Laurie, VK3AMA. Current WSJT development focus seems to be on the WSJT-X platform (JT9). It's rumored that other popular modes are to be ported into the new framwork, such JT65A among others. A new development push by Laurie, VK3AMA is also underway to port JT-Alert onto the WSJT-X framwork (JT-Alert-X). You can find allot more information and download these applications via the following links:
WSJT, WSJT-X, JT65HF and JT-Alerts:
If your not in the log, it's either a busted call or we didn't work. I upload all QSO's, contests, nets or otherwise.
