|Summary||0003125: QSOs with stations that aren't in a valid DXCC country show up in the awards totals for a country and should not|
|Description||QSOs with stations with a /MM suffix are maritime mobile stations and they should not count towards a country.|
Over the years, there have been many reports of this. This is the latest report:
For example, if a QSO is with a station with a callsign of FT5WQ/MM was operating from a boat and outside the boundaries of a country. This QSO should not count for any DXCC country. Per the ADIF standards, it should count for "None" with a DXCC numeric value of 0 (zero).
We need to add the DXCC Country of "None" and assign it DXCC=0.
Besides /MM, there may be other suffixes that should map to "None".
This should be factored into updates to callsign lookup and needs to apply to the DX cluster pane.
(On a related note - DX clusters use a suffix of /QQ to designate it as a "Pirate" station. This should also go into the "none" bucket.)
|Steps To Reproduce||Open Logbook|
Login to a DX cluster (like WA9PIE-2)
Dropdown "Show" to "Console"
Send the following command to the cluster from the command field in the upper left: "sh/dx RA0LQ/MM" without the quotes and hit "Enter"
You'll see that the cluster shows these incorrectly as "Asiatic Russia (UA9)"
Right-click the spot and select "New ALE Window" to the log. It incorrectly shows up as "Asiatic Russia (UA9)"
In both cases, it should say, "None".
|Additional Information||There's some work we need to do here with the Country List to accommodate this for logging and import/export.|
I can add the country ("None") into the Country List and try to identify the adverse impacts of doing so. Then we can fix them.
