I haven't found the entire list online. So this morning I downloaded the POTA files individually and merged into over 47,000 entries. I have not tried to Import the list into LOGic but will send it to Dennis to make sure the list is workable.

I never had any kind of error. Wonder why date, odd

How are you importing?

Awards>Setup>Awards list>Import List ??

Just to make sure we did it the same way.

No problem here either.

Here is the same data in DBF format. Try that (unzip first of course)

Found an error in my code. Not sure why it worked for me. Try the DBF. If no go, I will have another official update in a few days.

Tnx & 73,

For some reason the new 5-digit parks (K-10###) aren't being spotted as needed in the Spot Log. The park is listed in the Comment field for example K-10546, but never Red as needed in the Value column of Spot Log.

Anyone else seeing this?

Something I have to fix here.

What a mess! Poor planning on someone's part. They now appear in the list with K-10001 appearing after K-1000 (instead of K1001).

The whole list should be redone. K-0001 should now be K-00001.

Tnx & 73,

Not sure if you know this, but here is an email I received from the Pota folks in response to a question I asked.

Hi Dave, If you are looking for parks list, use this link https://pota.app/all_parks_ext.csv It is updated each night. If that is not what you want, let me know what you are needing.

Thanks!!!!!

That is perfect.

LOGic can import this file, after changing some column headers. See Import and Export in Help.


Original New
REFERENCE VALUE
NAME DESCR
LOCATIONDESC COMMENT4
LATITUDE COMMENT2
LONGITUDE COMMENT3
GRID COMMENT


Go to tools/setup/list of valid values to import it.

For convenience, I have attached the .DBF version to this message, ready to import. Be sure to unzip.

I will probably write an import utility for this to pretty much automate everything.

Tnx & 73,
