 1. on the '''Config''' window's '''Log''' tab, click the '''Log''' panel's '''Backup''' button (to make a backup copy of your log in case you don't like the results of this procedure)

 1. on the '''Main''' window's '''Log QSOs''' tab, click the '''Filter''' panel's '''X''' button (to ensure that all of your QSOs are present in the '''Log Page Display''')
Line 5: Line 9:
 1. create a new log (using the '''Config''' window's '''Log''' tab)   a. set the '''Options''' panel to '''Export standard ADIF'''
Line 7: Line 11:
 1. select the Main window's '''Import''' tab   a. check the '''export QTH definitions''' box
 
  a. click the '''Start''' button, and specify a file into which your log's QSOs will be saved
Line 9: Line 15:
 1. check the '''check duplicates on import''' box; set the''' range''' to +/- 0 minutes so that only exact duplicates are removed (unless you have duplicates whose times don't match, in which case set the range appropriately)  1. on the '''Config''' window's '''Log''' tab in the '''Log file''' panel, specify the name of a non-existent log file for DXKeeper to create, and then click the '''Create''' button
Line 11: Line 17:
 1. import the ADIF file you created in step 1
DXKeeper is not very efficient at removing duplicates, so step 5 might take awhile if your log contained a lot of QSOs. But its much faster than deleting the duplicates by hand!
  * for instance, C:\Program Files\DXLab Suite\DXKeeper\Logs\AA6YQ_no_duplicates.mdb

 1. on the '''Main''' window's '''Import''' tab

  a. in the '''ADIF style options''' panel, select '''standard ADIF'''

  a. in the '''Duplicate checking''' panel, check the '''check duplicates on import''' box, and set the '''range''' to +/- 0 minutes so that only exact duplicates are removed (unless you have duplicates whose times don't match exacty, in which case set the range appropriately)
 
  a. uncheck all other boxes

  a. click the '''Start''' button, and select the ADIF file you exported in step 3c


Each imported QSO is checked against each QSO in your log before importing it, so step 5d might take awhile if your log contained a lot of QSOs. But its much faster than deleting the duplicates by hand!

Removing Duplicate QSOs from a Log

  1. on the Config window's Log tab, click the Log panel's Backup button (to make a backup copy of your log in case you don't like the results of this procedure)

  2. on the Main window's Log QSOs tab, click the Filter panel's X button (to ensure that all of your QSOs are present in the Log Page Display)

  3. using the DXKeeper's Main window's Export tab, create a standard ADIF file containing all QSOs in your current log (the one containing duplicates)

    1. set the Options panel to Export standard ADIF

    2. check the export QTH definitions box

    3. click the Start button, and specify a file into which your log's QSOs will be saved

  4. on the Config window's Log tab in the Log file panel, specify the name of a non-existent log file for DXKeeper to create, and then click the Create button

    • for instance, C:\Program Files\DXLab Suite\DXKeeper\Logs\AA6YQ_no_duplicates.mdb
  5. on the Main window's Import tab

    1. in the ADIF style options panel, select standard ADIF

    2. in the Duplicate checking panel, check the check duplicates on import box, and set the range to +/- 0 minutes so that only exact duplicates are removed (unless you have duplicates whose times don't match exacty, in which case set the range appropriately)

    3. uncheck all other boxes
    4. click the Start button, and select the ADIF file you exported in step 3c

Each imported QSO is checked against each QSO in your log before importing it, so step 5d might take awhile if your log contained a lot of QSOs. But its much faster than deleting the duplicates by hand!
