The ADIF import can be used in two different scenarios:
For the user definable logging fields see: Preferences–>General.
Contest ADIF file: The received and transmitted control numbers can optionally be imported into the Note field.
RUMlog can import the ADIF Text format or the ADX format in xml. RUMlog detects the file format. The ADIF file must have one of the following file extensions:
When the log is empty, the options
should be deselected, because this makes no sense at this point. This can speed up the import routine dramatically.
When you expect just few New Ones (DXCC, band or mode) check the option Show New Ones. This will increase the needed computing time.
With the option No Dupes, the import of the same QSO (same time, band and mode) will be avoided. This may be useful, when you want to reimport a modified ADIF file. The set option slows down the import routine.
When the option No Dupes is checked, you can use the function Update QSO record. You have to select which fields you want to use for overwriting. If the affected QSO is already in the log, the selected fields will be overwritten. This may be useful, when you manipulate your QSOs with the third party application
