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!
