By way of setting the understanding bar very low, I am new to having any sort of computer in my shack and to computer logging, and have no skills or experience in any sort of programming. I am using a Raspberry Pi4 (2 Gb) running CQRLog 2.4.0 (001) and WSJT-X with an IC7300 satisfactorily, in that the remote facility logs FT8 QSOs for me, and I type in other QSOs manually. That's pretty much all I use it for at the moment, though I may look into QSLing electronically in future.
'Show QSO list' shows that I have 1029 entries in log nr 1, of which around 540 are from this year and recorded directly; the remainder are from previous years of low activity (and pre-Pi) most of which were typed in manually. I have created a backup of the log file, just in case.
It appears that if I scroll through the 'Show QSO list' that I am limited to reviewing around 500 entries, whether I scroll back from today's date, or change the sort and scroll forward from 1 Jan 2021. But occasionally I seem suddenly to be able to scroll through the full list. I'm not aware that I'm doing anything different when it does allow me to go back further, but I can't seem to do it deliberately and on demand. I haven't found any setting which addresses the number of lines accessible in 'Show QSO list'.
So, three questions please:
- How do I scroll back through the 'Show QSO list' reliably to see the full list of QSOs?
- If 1000+ QSOs is too long and I split the list into chunks of less than 500 OSOs, how do I still maintain 'Previous QSO' records and DXCC statistics and the like on an 'all-time' basis?
- is it possible to set some sort of counter to show the number of QSOs from a set date, say to count the number of QSOs this year in addition to the total (assuming the log is for a longer period)? I guess I could set up a new log for each year, but would I then have the problem with previous QSO records and statistics outlined above?
I don't know anyone local to me who uses CQRLog to ask them. I read back through several pages of the forum to see if I could find enlightenment, but failed.
Most grateful for assistance. Thank you.
