    Our engineer, Stephen VA7STV has just completed a great upgrade to the site.

    Notice the callsign search box at the top of each page. When you click on the text input area, the last 12 callsigns that you've looked up will appear for easy selection. This search history is stored in a browser cookie so if you are using multiple browsers, etc., each one will have its own lookup history.

    This should make it easy when bouncing around between calls, or just wondering where you were a minute ago. More enhancements coming soon.

    UPDATE

    We have just released a new styling for the forums called Dark Shack. You can select it in your user preferences area (at the top of this page, under your call).

    That is way cool.

    The QRZ crew has done Great work on the site. While Fred may be sipping drinks and smoking cigars in Cuba.:D

    I am trying to get over web addiction, and you are making my habit better.

    A nice feature to add, would be to let the subscribers have more time to edit and delete their double post.

    Thanks for all the great work Stephen, and Fred too for letting you do your thing.

    Excellent concept + feature, QRZ rocks.


    Footnote:
    Most browsers keep a history of your searches (ALL - not just 12) in the drop-down automatically -so when you typed, it would recall them for you.
    Now, only your recent history (12 items) are shown.

    So before if I typed say: 8P6.... all my 8P6 items quickly appeared because of default browser behavior, but now: nothing... just the last 12 items as per the cookie

    Would be nice to have the browser cached history in the drop down (as before) , PLUS a separate div with the QRZ cookie data.

    So keep the default drop down behavior of the browser, and ADD the new make #topcall div.history position left: 160px That way we have the best of both worlds.

    HRD is working oddly for me too. I get a whole bunch of "non call" stuff when I access QRZ from HRD. (Not XML, but the QRZ tab on HRD. This info is always the same.

    I have to scroll down through it to get to the actual QRZ page for the call I looked up.. I've attached what I see. Most of these are hyperlinks.. It doesn't show below because I attached the text and not the HTML:

    What version of HRD and Windows are you using ?

    That issue may be best on another thread.

    Good Luck.

    As I understand it, the older version of HRD has the function of IE7 internally. IE7 is garbage and we will never support it again. It was only luck that it worked at all, even before our upgrade. Even Microsoft hates it. Their new browser, called Edge, is pretty good!

    I know this won't help you, but I thought that I'd be straight about it.

    I totally agree with the footnote of K4ECD:
    «Most browsers keep a history of your searches (ALL - not just 12) in the drop-down automatically -so when you typed, it would recall them for you.
    Now, only your recent history (12 items) are shown.

    So before if I typed say: 8P6.... all my 8P6 items quickly appeared because of default browser behavior, but now: nothing... just the last 12 items as per the cookie

    I am working on SSB with the QRZ.com website in front of me and I am trying to open the page of the contacted station. I like to read details about his station and his bio. It was very useful to see if I worked a guy before just by typing the first characters of his callsing, i. e. his prefix. The browser offered me all the stations holding that prefix I worked, not only the last 12 callsigns, so I could thank them for a new call and a new contact. I am sorry we lost now that feature. I would be pleased to have it back, if possible. Thank you.
