Dear users,

I have released a beta including the following improvements (latest changes highlighted in boldface):
  • NEW: Transceiver control: now supporting up to 8 transceiver options. Swisslog will play the sound of the selected transceiver number in morse code. Download this file then unzip it in the C:\Swisslog\WAV folder.
  • NEW: Statistic Quick-View: now you can set this window as standalone (via pop-up menu).
  • NEW: Transceiver control window and toolbar: when using more one transceiver, clicking on the transceiver number will display a small list with the transceiver number and the name assigned by the user to select the desired transceiver. Now there is not need to go through all transceivers in sequence! 
  • NEW: Transceiver control window: fully redesigned and implementing the following features:
    - Mouse wheel tuning. Simply move cursor over any digit and move wheel up and down.  You can also type a frequency in Hz then Enter to set (as it was previously).
    - Window can be set as standalone via pop-up menu.
    - A button panel is available through a button with a red arrow to open/close it. This panel offers 12 buttons. User can customize every button with a caption and set a CAT command supported by your radio. Very useful to set filters, other modes, trigger CW or SSB memories saved on your radio, etc. This only works for Kenwood, ICOM, Yaesu transceivers and DX Lab Commander. In order to configure a CAT command to be sent through DX Lab Commader you need to add 000xcvrcommand'ASCIICATComand or 000xcvrcommandHexadecimalCATComand. Kenwood and new Yaesu uses ASCII commands and old Yaesu and ICOM uses Hexadecimal commands. Please read the radio manual to know about the CAT commands supported by your radio. Mouse right click to select the Configuration window.
    - A Digital S-Meter / Power Output is also available. See the S-Meter chapter to know which transceiver options are supported.
  • NEW: S-Meter / Power output: added support for Yaesu FT-817, FT-847, FT-857 and FT-897. Now S-Meter works for all Yaesu except FT-747 and FT-757. Many thanks to F6JON, EA5HKZ and LU1DZ for all testings!
  • NEW: Transceiver options: new tab "COM monitor and Command tester". User can now monitor COM port and also be able to send CAT commands. This tab is only available in Kenwood, ICOM and Yaesu transceivers. Trace option has been deleted.
  • NEW: Satellite users using SatPC32/SatPC32ISS. Added a new transceiver control option for SatPC32. Swisslog will read the SatPC32's Uplink frequency/mode and the selected satellite from SatPC32/SatPC32ISS will be set automatically in the satellite name field of the QSO Entry. The satellite panel will be visible automatically when SATPC32 is sending data (by default when satellite elevation is higher that 0) and will be hidden when satellite is out of range. This is a very useful transceiver control option specially for ICOM users where the uplink frequency in satellite mode is not read. 
  • NEW: The DM780 option now also supports QSOs saved from N1MM on UDP Port 12060.
  • NEW: Options > Rotor Interface / Transceiver Control menu: now it displays the transceiver/rotor name assigned by user instead of Transceiver 1-4 or Rotor 1-4
  • NEW: QSO Entry > Comments tab: added a vertical scroll bar to make navigation easier in case you place a lot of text.

  • NEW: ICOM Transceivers: added USB-D and LSB-D modes
  • NEW: TCP API: now supports the GreenCube Terminal by OZ9AAZ to work the IO-117 satellite
  • NEW: Schedules / Dx alerts: user can now sort ascending/descending by clicking on any column (except NOTES). Very useful when having many entries.
  • Corrected: Azimuth window: when not using a rotor interface it didn't show any beaming after entering a callsing in the QSO Entry window.
  • Corrected: Import QSO: if Merge QSO option was enabled and during the same session user perform another(s) importations, the Merge option was always enabled.
  • Corrected: DX window > Selection criteria: selecting all modes was not possible.
  • Corrected: Tools > ClubLog > Set DXCC from CLubLog. An exception raised if the QSO Entry window was not open.
  • Corrected: Update POTA references: some references were wrongly imported raising a "QTH Locator is invalid error message" after entering a POTA reference in the QSO Entry window.
  • Corrected: Callbook databases: QTH locator were not copied into the QTH locator field under certain scenarios.
  • Corrected: Enabling link to DM780, SIMPSK or JT65-HF, menu items were not checked on program launch.
  • Corrected: "Invalid floating point operation" error message on program startup or when clicking a callsign in a logbook view.
  • Corrected: QSO Entry: "Do not set mode from TX" option remained checked after closing WSJT-X or restarting Swisslog even if user didn't check it. This option is checked automatically during WSJT-X link to allow setting the QSO mode from WSJT-X into the QSO. But after closing WSJT-X, disabling the UDP button or Swisslog restart, this option must be restored to the initial user setting and this failed most times. 
          IMPORTANT: The "Save desktop at exit" main option must be checked to save all settings! Otherwise all changes won't be stored for the next session. Keep in mind that this may fail if Swisslog crashes
  • Corrected: ADIF import: SAT_MODE ADIF field was wrongly converted into the Propagation mode when should be skipped (there is no such field in Swisslog).
  • Corrected: improved S-Meter response in Yaesu FT-1000, FT-1000MP, FT-990, FT-920, FT-900 and FT-890. Many thanks F6JON for all testings!
  • Corrected: HRDLOG realtime edition not working.
  • Corrected: DEE update: importation stopped. Rewritten code to skip reference errors in the original file.
  • Corrected: transceiver toolbar was not displayed (if enabled by the user) if the transceiver option could not be started.
  • Corrected: Set DXCC from Club Log: closing this function minimizes the window instead of closing it.
  • Corrected: Realtime logging to eQSL: if not defined an eQSL Nickname in the selected MyQTH to avoid synch to eQSL, the QSO was uploaded equally.
  • Corrected: some important dialogs were hidden if changing focus to another programs being necessary to use task manager to get them back.
  • Corrected/improved: some issues when there were pending Log QSO requests from WSJT-X, DM780, etc when closing Swisslog. Raised the number of pending log QSO request to 100 (before was 20).
  • Corrected: Shazam/Query Report editor: TODAY filter function didn't work in languages using the dd/mm/yyyy date format. Only worked in countries using mm/dd/yyyy.
  • Corrected: World Map: The Show DX Stations on map only worked if a Dx Window was active. Now it will also work if a Band Map is active.
  • Changed: deleted TBDXC (True Blue DXers Club) from the membership panel because no longer exists (see
  • Corrected: Satellite panel could not be activated on bands higher or equal than 10m under certain scenarios.
  • Corrected: Transceiver control options: when pressing Start a Violation access error occurs and there is no way to close.
  • Corrected: LOTW Synch: expired certificates error message. This message happened if user deleted certificates from TQSL which were previously configured in Swisslog. Now Swisslog handles this scenario automatically, ignoring those which are not available anymore in TQSL.

Morning Jordi

where I can download this beta version??

Interested to log qso on LOTW - Sat IO-117 qso...not found this sat on my Swisslog version

Hi Franco,

If you want to use beta versions you need to read this thread:

However the source of your issue has nothing to do with Swisslog but you are not using latest TQSL software. It's VERY IMPORTANT to update TQSL before using the Swisslog's LoTW synch! Open TQSL then go to Help > Check updates. Current TQSL version is 2.6.5. If you are using a very old version you won't be able to update TQSL from this option. You will have to download and install TQSL manually. You can download latest TQSL version from the Download section of the Swisslog website. Once you have installed latest version, run it and maybe it will prompt you to update latest configuration file. Afterwards perform again the LOTW synch and all will work as expected.
