Adding new 3,5 MHz entry in WAZ database

Merry Christmas to everyone!

I tried to add some missing QSO for the zones 18 and 19 to the WAZ database. Everything worked flawlessy except QSO for 3,5 MHz. I am using the Germany "," in my whole system and never had problems. In the ADD box of the database the entry 3,5 is converted to 35.
The solution so far is to overwrite an existing entry. Than the box keeps the given entry. But that way is dangerous. I lost an entry and had to run the log check robot to get it back.
Does anyone has a better idea to overcome that problem?

Hi Gerald
Thanks for alerting me to this problem, I wasn't aware of this, which has probably existed since the beginning of time, it will be a straightforward fix but unfortunately I can't presently see a way to manually add band 3,5 (or 1,8) without switching to decimal "." locale, I think this should be picked up by automated methods though?
The fix will be in next version but no idea when that will be unfortunately.

Hello Colin,

I am glad to read that it is a minor issue to correct it. And it is no problem for me to wait for the next update. I am really pleased to contribute to the improvement of Winlog32 from time to time.
From time to time I have tried other logbook software but none has convinced me like WL32. Some of tehm have interesting features but I always found the handling and setup much more complicated. Thanks for all the time you spent and you are still spending to improve Winlog32.

Happy New Year and all the best for 2020!
