Hello Dennis
Some time ago I joined the Club Log and uploaded my QSOs there, since it makes it much easier to use the OQRS system for requesting QSLs.
But every time I upload my QSO's to Club Log I get a lot of messages of wrong DXCC for some calls from serbia, Slovenia and Bosnia-Herzegovinia.
It looks for me as the prefixtable is not quite correct, and in the beginning I made my own corrections, but they are overruled in new updates.
I enclose the message from ClubLog. Maybe you have someone who can correct the prefixlist for a coming updates ??

Carsten,
Your post referred to error messages you were getting but the link only refers to an article on the prefixes, dates and DXCC entity (ADIF number) for credit.

The prefix table has start and/or end dates and matches that to a DXCC entity. That might not match the logged DXCC of existing QSOs. What gets exported is whatever is in the QSO. Is it possible you have have entered old (paper) logs and LOGic matched them to the current uses for that prefix?

I recently finished entering my old paper log books. I often had to correct the DXCC since I had the QTH for the QSO and LOGic did not lookup right. Dennis' prefix table does not have every old use of a prefix. Entering my old logs, I had some KH7 (Kure Is) QSOs. Nowadays, that would just be Hawaii. Since I had the paper QSL cards, I knew which were Kure and could log correctly.

73s,
Don

Hi, Don
Thank you for your answer. And yes I had exact same problem, when I entered my old paperlogs back in 2011. And I can see, that my explanation of the problem is not quite clear.

When I upload my new QSO's to ClubLog I often get this message (exsample):

Dear OZ4CG,

While processing your ADIF file for Club Log, the following possible problems were detected. Your log may be correct, but if necessary you can resolve these problems and create a new ADIF. If you make changes, it's recommended that on your next upload you use the option to clear your existing log, to avoid leaving prior records in Club Log.

If you would like to discuss these problems, then please open a discussion on the reflector, or reply to this email to ask the volunteer team for help. You can disable these emails from the Settings page if you prefer.

This time I had QSO's for May and June 2018, and still got these messages. But of course I should have sent this messages with my Question.

I think, the prefix list in LOGic is not up-to-date, since the new QSOs with YU3, YU4, YT3 YT4 etc. is not correct registered. Thats why.

The reason for my question is, that I suppose many others may have the same problem ??

Thanks for the report. I fixed Slovenia, Serbia, and BOSNIA-HERZEGOVINA. Pse download and install 9.1.36.

If you see any more of these, let me know and I will fix them.

Good references BTW. I use the CTY files, but they are good only for current stuff.

Many thanks & 73,

Dennis WN4AZY
