On Being Assigned a New Callsign

Congratulations on your new call! Here's what you need to do to update your DXLab Applications:

  1. in DXKeeper:

    1. on the Configuration window's Defaults tab, update the Station callsign, Operator callsign, and Owner callsign settings

    2. unless you've moved to a new DXCC entity, continue to log QSOs in your current log file; there is no need to change the name of your log file to reflect your new callsign, though you can do so if you choose.
    3. if you're using eQSL.cc, open the QSL Configuration window's eQSL tab and uncheck the Don't upload QSOs whose station callsign isn't X box (where X is your eQSL username, which will likely remain your old callsign)

    4. if you're using the ARRL's Logbook of the World (LotW)

      1. upload all QSOs made with your old callsign

      2. request a certificate for your new callsign

      3. accept the certificate for your new callsign

      4. create a station location that incorporates your new certificate

      5. On the QSL Configuration window's LotW tab,

        • in the TQSL panel, select your new station location

        • in the Options (log-specific) panel, if you've specified a Limit Add and Sync operations to this station callsign setting, either remove it or change it to your new callsign

  2. in Pathfinder: on the Configuration window, update the your callsign setting

  3. in SpotCollector

    1. on the Configuration window's General tab, update the General panel's Operator callsign setting

    2. on the Configuration window's Spot Sources tab, update the Username settings in the Telnet DXClusters and IRC panels

  4. in WinWarbler: on the Configuration window's General tab, update the General panel's station callsign, operator callsign, and owner callsign settings
