Website update: some new features, some revisions

Some updates were deployed to the QO-100 Dx Club today, with several improvements mainly to the Profile section, and some global adjustments.

Modes

As it has been announced, we reviewed the modes we considered as DATA for the rankings. Our announcement explains it, but in a nutshell the list was reviewed and expanded. We also preemptively excluded some modes that don’t can’t be operated on the satellite related with digital voice.

The modes we count as DATA across the site are: AMTORFEC, ARDOP, ASCI, CHIP, CHIP128, CHIP64, CLO, CONTESTI, DOMINO, DOMINOF, FMHELL, FSK31, FSK441, FT8, GTOR, HELL, HELL80, HFSK, ISCAT, JT4, JT44, JT4A, JT4B, JT4C, JT4D, JT4E, JT4F, JT4G, JT65, JT65A, JT65B, JT65C, JT6M, JT9, MFSK, MFSK16, MFSK8, MSK144, MT63, OLIVIA, OPERA, PAC, PAC2, PAC3, PAX, PAX2, PKT, PSK, PSK10, PSK125, PSK2K, PSK31, PSK63, PSK63F, PSKAM10, PSKAM31, PSKAM50, PSKFEC31, PSKHELL, Q15, QPSK125, QPSK31, QPSK63, QRA64, ROS, RTTY, RTTYM, T10, THOR, THRB, THRBX, VOI, WINMOR, WSPR. Of course this list can be updated when needed.

Profile > Logbook

  • The search can now be performed also by mode, in addition the previously available Dates, Callsigns, and DXCC entity. You can also search for DATA modes for a consolidated view.
  • At the end of the  list there’s a “Download as .CSV” button that downloaded the currently listed QSOs in  CSV format, in case you need to perform some kind of analysis while offline.

Profile > QSOs with Issues

  • At the end of the list there’s a “Download as .CSV” button that downloaded the currently listed QSOs with issues in  CSV format, in case you need to perform some kind of analysis while offline.

Profile > Grid Map

  • You can now view your grid map by callsign and mode, previously you could only navigate to a page with your other callsigns, if you had any.
  • In the bottom of the page (with a link next to filter section) there’s a list with grids you have worked with the selected filter (callsign and mode). It defaults to all.

Profile > Status

  • The main table had a little facelift.
  • The main table now shows some statistics (worked and valid DXCC and Grids) per callsign and per mode (SSB, CW and DATA).
  • Fixed a bug where if you had more than one callsign, only the first table of worked DXCC entities was sortable.

The Club > Operating Abroad

We have included a link to DARC’s CEPT-Länderliste that is maintained by Hans Schwarz DK5JI, a compilation of regulations of the CEPT countries. If you are planning to travel and operate in a new country, this document is a valuable tool to make sure you follow the local laws and regulations, not only for QO-100 but also for other bands.

Have fun on the satellite and 73
