Removing Duplicate QSOs from the Currently Open 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,

    1. click the Filter panel's X button (to ensure that all of your QSOs are present in the Log Page Display)

    2. click the Adv button to display the Advanced Filters, Sorts, and Modifiers window

  3. in the Advanced Filters, Sorts, and Modifiers window's Duplicates panel, click the Filter button

  4. if you don't care about choosing which of a pair of identical QSOs to delete, then on the Main window's Log QSOs tab, depress the CTRL key while clicking the Delete button

  5. if you'd prefer to select which of a pair of identical QSOs to delete, possibly moving information (e.g. from Name or Address items) from one QSO to the other before deleting a duplicate, then

    1. on the Main window's Log QSOs tab,

      • click the Filter panel's X button to remove all Log Page Display filtering

      • set the Sort panel to UTC

    2. if the APP_DXKEEPER_SELECT item is not visible in the Log Page Display, add a column for this item using the table in the Log Page Display panel on the Configuration window's Log tab

    3. review the QSOs in the Log Page Display, setting or clearing the Select items of those QSOs you do or don't wish to have deleted; double-clicking a QSO to filter the Log Page Display to show only QSOs with that same callsign can be helpful when performing this review.

    4. on the Main window's Log QSOs tab,

      • click the Filter panel's Sel button, and verify that the QSOs now visible in the Log Page Display are the ones you wish to delete

      • depress the CTRL key while clicking the Delete button
