GridTracker does not manipulate log entries or add details. This is the job of logging software and services such as LoTW and QRZ.com. Since WSJT-X QSO entries do not contain US State information, I detect the state based on the US Callsign database (ULS) information. I could detect by grid , as I have this information but a grid can belong to more than one state. So it’s hard to know which one is the correct state for the QSO which is why I defer to ULS.
If anyone has opinions on how to reliable detect the state from the grid please shoot me an email.
Example: Fm29 belongs to Delaware, Virginia, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. If you have a QSO in wsjt-x with grid FM29. Did you work all 4 states?
If the answer is to do a callsign lookup to a callsign service like QRZ.com, then when the Caller is in DM86 but lives in FN20 and QRZ.com lookup returns Grid : FN20 and State : New Jersey, do we say the QSO was in New Jersey? But since DM86 is in New Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas, which state did we work?
