I have been testing the IMPORT/EXPORT and have come up a with a problem.
I successfully IMPORTED a 17000 QSO .adi file which I had exported from
CQRLOG...which all went  into xlog correctly - although the earliest QSO
was displayed at the top and the newest QSO at the bottom of the list -
I prefer the newest QSO at the top of the screen. I then EXPORTED the
new xlog log to a new .adi file....after  deleting the old log, and
re-imported the new .adi file made with xlog 2.06. However, only part of
the log was imported....strange.

Is the EXPORT working properly????

Hi Stephen,

Thank you for sending that rather large ADIF file.  I have duplicated
the problem.  With your file, the new ADIF v2 EXPORT malfunctions.  The
resulting exported file only has about 3500 QSOs instead of 17,196 QSOs.
  I have not yet found the root cause.

I tried this same experiment with xlog 2.0.5 and I discovered no
problems, so something seems to be amiss with 2.0.6beta.

Thanks, and 73,


HI Stephen,

I found the problem, but have not yet fixed it.

In your log, some QSOs are specified with mode MFSK.

According to the ADIF specification, version 2.2.7, that is not a legal mode specifier. Close to it, and legal, are MFSK8 and MFSK16.


CQRLOG indicated that the ADIF version was 2.2.1, and the same was true in that version of the specification. I claim that is may be a bug in CQRLOG, or perhaps an omission in the ADIF specification.

However, xlog should have acted in a different way. It should have flagged an error when the file was imported in the first place, and it didn't. I plan to address that deficiency.
