Summary0002632: Logbook: QRZ lookup doesn't handle non ASCII characters at QRZ lookup
DescriptionThe Logbook doesn't handle high-ASCII characters correctly; this is a form of data corruption because fidelity of representation is lost.
Steps To Reproduce
1) Fire up Logbook
2) Use the "Callsign Lookup" command in the "Configure" menu to make sure QRZ XML lookups are enabled
3) Use the "Add" button to open the QSO editor
4) Enter a user who has a name and/or addres with accented characters in it. I'm testing with "EA2KR".
5) Click on the "Loation" tab
6) Press "Lookup"

BUG#1) The name populates like this:

Óscar Sánchez cárdenas
Concejo De Zabalegui nº 24 1º C
31110 Noain (Navarra)

Visiting QRZ, you can find this operator's call and name and address; it looks like this:

Óscar Sánchez cárdenas
Concejo De Zabalegui nº 24 1º C
31110 Noain (Navarra)

The tilde-A characters before the accented characters in the strings is characteristic of a failure to handle UTF-8 encoding.

TagsNo tags attached.

Verified that the ALE now correctly displays Unicode characters with the EA2KR test case call. This will be a greatly appreciated fix no doubt!
