Multiple Callsigns

I have operated using eight different call-signs to date and would like to track each of these call-signs separately for award and logging purposes. How do I do that?

Having all of the contacts in one "mega" log is OK for checking if I have ever worked someone, but sometimes I just want to know if I have worked them under my current call.

Bob,
Since LOGic QSO records have an operator field, just add the records with the appropriate call.

When I started with LOGic, I went back and entered all the QSL cards I had. Then I (slowly) entered my paper logs dating back to 1964.
These covered my old WA2UZI call as well as the current W2ZI call.

The old calls uploaded to my LoTW account just fine. I had to break them up when I uploaded to eQSL.

I can narrow the search/filter/report to my older call or just hi-lite a previous QSO and see the operator.

Never found my (really old) K1LTQ (tech) logs but my old license is framed in the shack.

73s, Don

Don,

Yes, I know how to enter contacts under the various call-signs.

I want to be able to do award tracking only on selected call-signs.

I think I may be able to do this via a filter on one of my call-signs, then do an incremental search, and then do update award function. I am experimenting with this now.

In Awards/Update Awards Progress Info you will find what you need. Kinda a pain, because you have to retally awards to switch callsigns.

If for example you have your current active log and QSOs from a DXPedition, I would put the DXpedition calls in another database. There is no reason to have them co-mingled that I see.
