I'm wondering if there's a way...or if a method could be instituted...that would allow a QRZ.com logbook user to determine if the call sign entered in "search" was actually keeping a QRZ.com log, doing so BEFORE bothering to log the contact. I ask this because I'm attempting to achieve a QRZ.com "50 United States Award" and a "DX World Award." When I search for a call sign I see spotted, and then click on "Log NEW contact with ______" button, I have to enter the QSO information (OR enter nothing), and then click "Save." It is only when it's saved to my QRZ.com log that I can determine if that QSO can possibly be confirmed in MY QRZ.com logbook by seeing if the call sign is shown in Boldface Blue or Normal Black. In short, I often waste time going through that entire process, only to find that the contact can't possibly count towards QRZ.com log awards because the contacted station doesn't keep a QRZ.com log, and therefore, can't confirm the contact. I realize that's a very "wordy" question, but I've attempted to ask it as concisely as I can. When searching for a call sign on QRZ.com, ALL call signs come up in Boldface Blue, but that call sign MUST be entered and logged before one can tell if the contact also keeps a QRZ.com log (and can confirm the contact). It would be helpful to know before making all the effort to log the contact and finding out they don't log on QRZ.com, Sorry to sound so complex. It's just an observation....and a suggestion as well. 73 de KB3ZIM ------------------------------------- FROM THE HELP FORUM: Q: Why are some callsigns in my logbook bold-blue, while others are normal-black? A: Bold-blue callsigns in your logbook indicate that the user has a QRZ Logbook and can reciprocate QSO entries for confirmation. Normal-black callsigns indicate that the user does not yet have a QRZ Logbook. Why don't you invite them?
