Hi Buddy,

Do you have "Show All" checked in the Spot Log window ?? If you uncheck it you wont see any more CW spots, but you'll only see spots you need.

I believe the correct way to disable CW spots entirely is via the band table and not the mode table. Just go to the Options tab in the Spot Log window, then go to Band Setup, uncheck all the "Spot for this Band" checkboxes for the CW band segments. You can then undo all the CW mode table changes you made as well as re-checking "Show All" in the Spot Log main window.

Right -- unchecking Spot in the Mode table will not prevent a spot from showing in the spot log -- it will just not show progress for the award.

To make it ignore CW spots altogether, do it from the band table. You can block spotting for the CW band segments. It will also block any digital modes from those band segments that you want, however.

Unfortunately, spots do not include modes. You have to figure it out from the frequency or the spot comment.

Tnx & 73,
