 1. In [[http://www.dxlabsuite.com/spotcollector/|SpotCollector]], double-clicking a Spot Database Entry whose mode is ''PSK31'', ''PSK63'', ''PSK125'', or ''RTTY'' will convey the entry's callsign, frequency, mode, and grid square to !WinWarbler, which will populate its '''QSO Info''' panel with this information and direct [[TransceiverControl|Commander]] to QSY your transceiver to the appropriate frequency and mode. If you want !SpotCollector to similarly activate !WinWarbler when you double-click a Spot Database Entry whose mode is ''CW'', ''SSB'', ''AM'', or ''FM'', check that mode's box in the '''Service''' column in the '''Actions with Digital Mode Application connection''' panel on the '''General''' tab of !SpotCollector's '''Configuration''' window.  1.

Logging QSOs from WinWarbler to DXKeeper

WinWarbler can log QSOs as ADIF records in a text file, referred to as the Minilog. However, most users prefer to log QSOs in real time to DXKeeper, DXLab's full-functioned logging application that records and manages QSOs, tracks progress towards DXing objectives, prints QSL cards and QSL labels, and and synchronizes with eQSL.cc, LoTW, and Club Log. Thus article provides basic configuration and operation instructions for using WinWarbler with DXKeeper running. A comprehensive description of WinWarbler's logging capabilities is provided in its reference documentation.

As in all DXLab applications, allowing the mouse cursor to hover over a checkbox, selector, or textbox will produce a small popup explanation describing its purpose.

Configuration

  1. in the General panel on the General tab of WinWarbler's Configuration window,

    1. specify the station callsign you'll be using over-the-air in QSOs

    2. specify your operator callsign, and owner callsign; these are often the same as your station callsign

  2. in the QSO Info panel on the Log tab of WinWarbler's Configuration window,

    1. check the automatic lookup box

    2. check the set QSO start when RST Rcvd box

    3. check the refuse to log if invalid callsign box

    4. check the refuse to log if missing DXCC box

  3. in the Default Settings panel on the Log tab of WinWarbler's Configuration window,

    1. set the Path selector to 'S' (meaning "short path")

    2. set the Item focus after callsign entry panel to RST Sent item

  4. In SpotCollector, double-clicking a Spot Database Entry whose mode is PSK31, PSK63, PSK125, or RTTY will convey the entry's callsign, frequency, mode, and grid square to WinWarbler for logging. If you want SpotCollector to similarly convey information to WinWarbler when you double-click a Spot Database Entry whose mode is CW, SSB, AM, or FM, check that mode's box in the Service column in the Actions with Digital Mode Application connection panel on the General tab of SpotCollector's Configuration window.
