Summary0003689: Cannot connect to DX cluster when the user has selected a callsign to use that contains a slash character
DescriptionNow that we have the ability to add callsigns for customers in QLM, we have requests for those callsigns to include a slash character. Examples include - VK4/WA9PIE, WA9PIE/M... and so on.

At present, the value used for connecting to the DX cluster comes from: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Amateur Radio\HRD User Profile\WA9PIE\Callsign (where WA9PIE is the station profile being used)

We need to change it so that the value used for connection to the DX cluster comes from: Computer\HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Amateur Radio\HRD User Profile\WA9PIE\Operator
Steps To ReproduceUse a call that has a key assigned to it in QLM
Add a slash as an additional call
Attempt to connect to a DX cluster using the slash call as the active callsign
The DX cluster connection fails because they don't support slashes in the call
Additional InformationThis change will cause the Operator value to be sent to make the DX cluster connection, rather than the Callsign value. This will correct the problem.
TagsNo tags attached.

Doug - can you take a look at this one?

I changed the get function in HRDStationLicense.cpp so it now gets the Operator value for DX cluster connections.

EA6/***, /P and /M worked as they should.

@g3ucq John, try this with the VK4/G3UCQ callsign I just put in your key (the call shows up in My Station; select that "station" and connect to the cluster after it's selected.)

Mike. /M, /P, /8 work OK with my new callsign.

This isn't working correctly. I'll need to capture the steps and add them to this item later. (We can't release it the way it is.)

I've recorded a video here. The free recording software I used limited me to 5 minutes. It cut off with about 15 seconds left. I hope there's enough in these examples to give you an idea about how it should work. Let me know if you have any questions.

I did not get the window pop up that you see Mike.
VK4/G3UCQ is the same as your example.

In this scenario, you would only get the popup if you had selected VK4/G3UCQ as the active call. Pardon me for asking, but you did that? (sorry, just checking)

I have added HRD test.mp4 to the Dropbox/Ham Radio Deluxe(1)/HRD Beta Team folder
Hope this helps.

It looks like those fields weren't using the same get functions as the actual connect function. I updated it so that they use the same functions. I also set the user info to update after you exit the my station dialog so if your in your connection menu you don't have to close and reopen for it to have your changes. My station kept popping up in your video because your locator option wasn't filled in. We probably want to add an error dialog or something similar to let the user know there is missing required info.

@WILL Agreed on the error dialog. We can pick that up whenever. Thanks.
