Summary 0003462: call sign lookup options should always list Unique Call sign Database first
Revision 2019-09-25 22:21 by WA9PIE
Description The functional specifications for 0003001 was to have the HRD Country List listed, permanently as the "source of last resort."

The specification reads as follows:

The callsign lookup operation uses the remote station’s callsign to retrieve information about the callsign identified in the QSO. The lookup operation proceeds with these steps:
1. The Public Unique Callsign Database (UCSDB) is searched for the target callsign. This data source is used unconditionally; the user may not re-order it or disable it.
2. The Private UCSDB is searched for the callsign. This option is performed unconditionally.
3. Each of the options specified by the user as “enabled” in the Callsign Lookup settings dialog box are visited. These sources are visited in the order specified.
4. The Ham Radio Deluxe Country List is visited to retrieve the callsign’s country (FLD_QSO_COUNTRY). No other fields are retrieved from this source. The Country List data source is used unconditionally.

Then...

The Public UCSDB, Private UCSDB, and HRD Country List sources are always listed, since they’re unconditionally considered. Their entries are not movable. They are shown in the UI for discover-ability; so that users understand they exist and understand their relative position.
