Plotting Worked and Confirmed Grid Squares on the DX Atlas World Map

If you have DX Atlas installed, you can configure DXView to display information on the DX Atlas World Map by clicking the Enable button in the DX Atlas panel in the bottom-left corner of the World Map tab of DXView's Configuration window.

To plot the Grid Squares of worked and confirmed QSOs in DXKeeper's Log Page Display on the DX Atlas World Map

  1. Configure DX Atlas to display grid square boundaries by setting its Map menu's Grid item to Grid Squares; then zoom in so that individual grid squares are visible

  2. In the DX Atlas panel on the World Map tab of DXView's Configuration window, check the Update grid status box

  3. Filter DXKeeper's Log Page Display to contain the QSOs to be plotted; to plot all QSOs in your log, click the Filter panel's X button at the bottom of the Log QSOs tab of DXKeeper's Main window.

  4. just above the Log Page Display on the Log QSOs tab of DXKeeper's Main window, click the Plot button

  5. On the Plot Settings tab of DXView's Configuration window, the Selection panel will have changed from Spots to Log; check or uncheck the Unworked, Unconfirmed, Confirmed, and Verified boxes in this Panel to filter the plotted QSOs as desired.

QSOs in the DXKeeper's Log Page Display will be plotted as red dots on the DX Atlas World Map. Placing the mouse cursor on plotted red dot for a second or two will produce a small popup window describing the logged QSO's callsign, DXCC entity, band, mode, and grid square.

If Google Earth is installed and enabled, QSOs plotted on the DX Atlas World Map will also be plotted on Google Earth.
