Managing Multiple Operating Locations

(Under construction)

If all of your QSOs were made from the same operating location, then all logged QSOs will "count" towards all awards, and the QTH-related information printed on QSL card never changes.

However, if you've made QSOs from more than one operating location, then

* only some of your QSOs may count towards some of the awards you're pursuing; QSOs made in pursuit of ARRL WAS awards, for example, must be made from locations that no two of which are more than 50 miles apart.

* some of the information you print on an outgoing QSL card -- your grid square, state or province, city, CQ zone -- may vary as a function of the location from which the QSO was made

You can define a my QTH for each location from which you've operated. Each my QTH specifies the details of its location, and a unique my QTH ID. Every logged QSO made from a particular my QTH should specify the appropriate my QTH ID.

Defining a my QTH

  1. select the Main window's my QTHs tab

  2. click the New button

  3. specify a unique ID

    • a town name is usually a good choice unless you've operated from more than one location within the same town
    • the ID cannot contain a single apostrophe

  4. specify the other information you want associated with this my QTH; typically you should specify your

    • Name

    • Street address

    • Pri Sub (Primary Administrative Subdivision, e.g. your State or Province or Bundesland or Department or Oblast or Prefecture or ...)

    • Sec Sub (Secondary Administrative Subdivision, e.g. your County or District or City/Gun or ...)

    • Country name

    • PostCode

    • Grid square

    • CQ zone

    • ITU zone

    • IOTA tag

  5. Click the Save button

The ID of the my QTH you've just defined will now be available as a choice in
