Summary0003145: Enhance logging output of callsign lookup feature
DescriptionThe Callsign Lookup process is almost completely opaque. The user enters a callsign and initates a lookup. The lookup uses an elaborate set of rules to lookup an collect information about the contacted station, and that information is entered into the logbook record.

Users might be surprised or disappointed in the results of the lookup operation. There's no way to see what the operation did, other than its completed results.

The product should be enhanced to help users understand what's hapened, and help them and support diagnose problems. Logging will also help correctness verification and testing.
Steps To ReproduceThe callsign lookup feature should be enhanced to add progress and diagnostic information to the logfile.

The feature should always log its steps and some timing: "Lookup of K7ZCZ at returned failure in 0.750 seconds", for example. This message can be shown in order for each data source visited, including the internal Logbook and country databases.

When "Debug" is enabled in the logifle view, the callsign lookup option should show details of each field and value retrieved from each data source as it goes. As a very simple example (with only a couple fields), this output is offered:

Lookup of K7ZCZ at returned failure in 0.750 seconds
Lookup of K7ZCZ in Logbook returned success in 1.115 seconds
Lookup K7ZCZ in Logbook: Country == "USA"
Lookup K7ZCZ in Logbook: Name = "Mike Blaszczak"
Lookup K7ZCZ in Logbook: QTH = "Mercer Island"
Lookup of K7ZCZ in Hamcall returned success in 0.990 seconds
Lookup K7ZCZ in Hamcall: Country == "USA" ignored, already popultaed
Lookup K7ZCZ in Hamcall: Address1 == "500 Main Street"
Lookup K7ZCZ in Hamcall: Name == "Mike Blaszczak" ignored, already popultaed
Lookup K7ZCZ in Hamcall: QTH == "Colorado Springs" ignored, already popultaed
Lookup of K7ZCZ completed with 3 data sources
