Configuring DXKeeper for Interaction with LotW

The following steps assume that you plan to confirm all newly made QSOs via LotW using your PC's internet connection, and that you are making QSOs using one station callsign from one operating location:

  1. Open the Main window and select the QSL tab

  2. Click the QSL Config button; the DXKeeper QSL Configuration window will appear

  3. In the DXKeeper QSL Configuration window, select the LotW tab

    1. click the Update button to display DXKeeper's LotW Account window

      1. set the Username textbox to the Web Account Username specified on the email message you received when you accepted your initial certificate

      2. set the Password to web account textbox to the Web Account Password specified on the email message you received when you accepted your initial certificate

      3. click the OK button

    2. check the Initialize LotW Sent to 'R' for each logged or imported QSO box

    3. check the Set outgoing card/label QSL? to "thanks!" if the QSO is already confirmed in LotW box

    4. uncheck the PC has no internet connection (prompt operator to upload/download on another PC) box

    5. in the Handling of LotW QSL detail inconsistencies panel, select Display a dialog box and let operator choose

    6. in the Options (log-specific) panel,

      1. set the Limit Add and Sync operations to this operator callsign box to your operator callsign

      2. check the Report unmatched QSOs and QSLs as errors box

      3. uncheck the Exclude operator callsign when matching downloaded QSOs & QSLs to logged QSOs box

    7. in the TQSL panel,

      1. set the TQSL.exe pathname pathname to the location where you installed TQSL ; if you don't remember when you installed TQSL,

        • if there's an icon for TQSL on your Windows Desktop,
          1. right-click the icon and select Properties from the menu

          2. in the TQSL Properties window, select the Shortcut tab

          3. the pathname to TQSL.exe will be shown in the Target box.

        • otherwise, direct Windows Explorer to search your hard drive(s) for the file TQSL.exe

      2. select the Station Location from which you are operating

      3. if the Station Callsign box is set to [None], replace [None] with the Station Callsign you used to make QSOs (the callsign you used over the air when making those QSOs)

If the assumptions above are incorrect, see
