HAMLOG Upload

Use this function to upload your logbook into HAMLOG. Select the callsign to upload from the dropdown list (contains all callsigns added in all your My QTH). QSO will be uploaded in sequence (one QSO after another) sorted by date. 

NOTE: If you have not configured yet your HAMLOG log in details in Options | Online Logbooks, Swisslog will prompt you to enter the log in details the first time you run this function.

You can upload QSO within a range of dates. This is useful in very large logbooks to split the upload by periods of time or when you import QSO from another program and you want to upload only these QSO instead of the full logbook. The range of dates used will be saved so that next time you open this function user knows the last range of dates used. If this option is not checked (unchecked by default) the full logbook will be uploaded.

Depending on your internet connection and server work load, the time response from server may vary. Set in the timeout field the maximum time (in seconds) you want to wait before skipping to the next QSO.The default timeout value is 15 seconds.

When you are ready press the Upload button. A progress bar is displayed indicating record number and total number of QSOs to be uploaded. Please note that only QSOs not previously uploaded with Swisslog (the ones with L_HAMLOG_QSO_UPLOAD_STATUS = 0) will be selected to upload. In case of any error it will be displayed below. At the end of the process you can save the list of errors in a text file. You can cancel the process at any time by closing the window.

The ADIF file will be saved in the HAMQTH folder (located where Swisslog is installed) with your callsign and current date as file name in the following format: CALLSIGN_YYYYMMDD.ADI.
