QRZ.COM: US-States digrams in returned information string

      QRZ.COM: US-States digrams in returned information string

      Hi All,
      ... at the time we integrated the QRZ.COM database query into TL4 the "STATE" information was not available in the returned data string.
      In the mean time, however, this useful information for working the WORKED ALL STATES ( WAS ) award can be retrieved and exploited.

      In our next update version TL4.11 we will make the States digrams available as a user configurable input to the USERKEY field on the log input line. Since this requires internal software modifications it cannot be made available on the spot.

      However, you can at least display the State information in the QRZ.COM information line right now. All you need to do is:
      1. Edit Turbolog4.asc under the root directory. Just add ,state to the end of line 1170 ( ... or at any other position where you want it to be placed in the string... ) as now to read: call,dxcc,fname,name,addr1,addr2,country,lat,lon,grid,ccode,land,class,codes,iota,qslmgr,email,url,u_views,bio,moddate,eqsl,mqsl,cqzone,ituzone,locref,born,lotw,user,state
      2. Close TL4 and restart in order to let the changes become effective.
      3. Move into the Log Configuration menu, select the QRZ.COM item. You will now see state appearing as the bottom entry of the left box. If you mark the assigned check box the states digram will appear as last entry on the information line.
      This is of great help in finding out whom to call or not ... :)

      Have fun!
