A Bands and Modes Utility for DXKeeper
DXKeeper's automation of the QSL Card/Label generation process assumes that the operator wants to work every DXCC entity on some or all bands, in some or all modes; it cannot be configured to automatically generate QSL Cards or Labels for the operator seeking to work every DXCC entity on combinations of bands and modes, e.g. "I want to work every DXCC entity on 20m SSB, 20m CW, and 20m RTTY". The Bands and Modes Utility (BMUtil) now provides this capability.
Only the last QSO for a given Band & Mode will be added. Choosing the last QSO logic was selected because there is more of a chance to get a card for a recent QSO than an old one.
You can always mark the QSO's by hand, in DXKeeper, if this logic won't work for you.

The program will select the last database name that DXKeeper used and assume you want to open it. If this is not the database you want to use, double-click the database window and select the one you prefer. Note that any database used must be in DXKeeper format with an .mdb extent to work with BMUtil.
BMUtil will detect DXKeeper's status and display it in the title bar.
If DXKeeper's database is a different name than the one BMUtil is using, there will be a warning message issued asking if you want to proceed. It will allow a different database to be used, but this should be avoided as confusion could result.
Pressing the tab key will set the database and display the next screen.
A counter directly above the database window keeps you informed of how many QSOs are loaded in DXKeeper's QSL queue at any given time.
Select an action to be performed.
Optionally you may also set the following parameters if needed.
Note: See the on-Line help file for more information about using
this utility. See the Revision Log here for a
history of changes.
Send me an email and let me know if you have problems or suggestions for making BMUtil better.
