Setting IOTA Award Objectives

On the Awards tab of DXKeeper's Config window, checking the Realtime Award Progress box in the IOTA panel enables realtime award tracking for the IOTA family of awards administered by the RSGB. With this box checked,

  1. callsigns needed for IOTA are highlighted in DXKeeper's Main and Capture windows and in WinWarbler's QSO Info panel (via bold red font)

  2. DXKeeper generates an outgoing QSL card/label soliciting confirmation of QSOs needed for IOTA when you invoke the AddNeeded operation with the IOTA box checked in the Awards panel on the QSL Configuration window's General tab

  3. IOTA award progress is a factor in determining
    1. whether or not DXKeeper prints Please! or Pse! on generated QSL cards and labels, respectively

    2. which QSOs are considered by DXKeeper's QSL Aging report

    3. which newly-imported QSOs DXKeeper reports as confirming or verifying (indicating IOTA award credit being granted) needed IOTA groups
    4. which Spot Database Entries SpotCollector highlights as needed and announces audibly, with a 'I" in the Needed column

Note: if you have DXKeeper configured for realtime tracking of IOTA awards, then after directing DXView to update the IOTA database, click the Recompute button at the bottom of the Check Progress tab of DXView's Main window. After DXKeeper completes the Recompute operation, if you are using SpotCollector, open the the Spot Database tab of SpotCollector's Config window, and click the Recomputation panel's Recompute button.
