2019/01/16: CSVUserlistBrowser controls CATSync
Starting with version 4.17 beta 7 any version of CSVUserlistBrowser can control the WebSDR browser CATSync by OM Oscar, DJ0MY, as an external rig via Omnirig. Omnirig and a virtual COM port pair are required. See the instructions on the CATSync page.
2018/12/21: Old EIBI URL is back
From now on the original EIBI URL is valid again (in lower case):
2018/12/20: Solution for the EIBI server issue
As a workaround to the current server issue EIBI has renamed eibi.txt to eibi.TXT. Call the Downloader with Ctrl Alt D, change the URL at EIBI default (txt) to
(TXT in upper case) and click "Save details".
2018/12/17: Misconfiguration of EIBI server
Since today the server at EIBI refuses access to all .txt files (like eibi.txt) with a "403 Forbidden". Files with the suffix .TXT (in upper case, like README.TXT) are not involved. This is certainly an unintended error in the server settings which will be corrected soon. It is not a bug in CSVUserlistBrowser.
2018/11/04: CSVUB 4.16 final
EIBI has started to deliver his new files and the AOKI B18 URL seems to be stable. Thus, as announced, I today terminate the 4.16 beta branch and release version 4.16 of CSVUserlistBrowser as a final version.
2018/10/28: B18 season started
The B18 broadcast season has started today. The URL for the AOKI files is as follows (provided it does not change):
The EIBI files will certainly be updated soon. Those using the EIBI Sked (CSV) schedules in a few days should change the URL to:
As soon as all the schedules are stable in a few days I am planning to release the current beta 4.16 as the next final version.
2018/10/14: HFCC B18 schedule open
HFCC just just published the schedules for upcoming B18 season.
Please note that the list is preliminary, the season starts on October, 28th.
2018/10/07: Classaxe server issues appearently solved
The problem with server error messages inserted in Classaxe downloads seem to be solved. Now the download should be possible again with older versions prior to 4.16 beta 29.
2018/10/05: Classaxe server throws error messages
Currently the server at www.classaxe.com inserts a lot of server warnings and error messages in all download files and web pages. They confuse the conversion in CSVUserlistBrowser. I have made a workaround in Beta 4.16-29. Thus, if you need the RNA/REU/RWW lists, you should download CSVUserlistBrowser 4.16 beta 29 (or higher).
2018/09/04: Classaxe server working again
The database problem at www.classaxe.com has been repaired.
2018/09/03: Classaxe server currently broken
www.classaxe.com currently has a problem with the mySQL database. The fault is not with CSVUserlistBrowser!
2018/07/15: AMLIST/FMLIST, https://
The change-over to https:// at FMSCAN has been completed today. Those who still use CSVUserlistBrowser version 4.14 or earlier now should go for 4.15 or 4.16beta.
2018/05/31: AMLIST/FMLIST, https:// and CSVUserlistBrowser 4.15
The FMSCAN download is currently still working with CSVUserlistBrowser 4.14 (unexpectedly). But please note that the secure https transfer and the opt in choice to send a location cookie to the FMSCAN website are only provided in CSVUserlistBrowser 4.15. I am going to remove the old version 4.14 completely the next days assuming that it will no longer work with FMSCAN in the near future. Version 4.15 is running here without issues for 14 days now on Windows 10. Only in one single case a minor problem was reported for Windows 7/32 which could not be reproduced and somehow disappeared by itself.
2018/05/21: AMLIST/FMLIST downloads from 2018/05/25 only transferred encrypted
As the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) finally comes into effect on 2018/05/25 the www.fmscan.org website now completely switches to secure (enyrypted) https transaction. In order to make downloading possible with CSVUserlistBrowser I have re-written the complete AMLIST/FMLIST download process and the logging procedure for the MWLIST/FMLIST online logbook (for registered members) in the past weeks. The functions are available in CSVUserlistBrowser 4.15. Older versions will no longer be able to receive data from the FMSCAN websites and to post logs.
As a so called session cookie is also sent back to the FMSCAN web server the Downloader now contains an additional checkmark where the user must explicitely agree that the cookie is transferred together with the geographical location data. This cookie is still not permanently stored on the harddisk and is "forgotten" when CSVUserlistBrowser is closed. It is only used when downloading an AMLIST/FMLIST file in the Downloader.
Call the Downloader with Crtl+ALt+D once in case you have automatics like ASD running. Then you can check the option calmly (if desired).
No private data are transferred when reqesting a list from AOKI, EIBI, HFCC and Classaxe.
I was not able to test the new secure transaction 1000 % over a longer period against all kinds of errors which might occur while a transfer is in progress. Thus CSVUserlistBrowser 4.15 will be released as a beta version for some time.
2018/04/21: "WhiteArmor" now renamed "Babable"?
The wayward antivirus software "WhiteArmor" now seems to be called "Babable". The scan results for CSVUserlistBrowser.exe unfortunately are as absurd as with "WhiteArmor" before. A web research did not bring up any informations about the manufacturer of this software. I was able to find out that "WhiteArmor" is probably an antivirus engine for Android systems. CSVUserlistBrowser certainly does not run under Android. Currently (2018/04/21) 63 virus screeners at virustotal do not find a threat in CSVUserlistBrowser.exe, three are unable to scan exe files (???), and only "Babable" once again believes CSVUserlistBrowser contains a "Malware.HighConfidence".
2018/04/02: CSVUserlistBrowser 4.14
The AOKI download link seems to be stable for A18 and I don't expect any more changes in the compilation of the AOKI zip file. Thus I am releasing CSVUserlistBrowser 4.14 final today.
2018/03/31: AOKI A18 contains .xslx file again
The current AOKI A18 .zip under
now contains a clear (not password protected) nxa18.xlsx table. Thus the import via ODBC driver is possible again.
2018/03/29: Remarks on antivirus software "WhiteArmor"
For some time now already "WhiteArmor" reports as the only one out of 65 antivirus scanners at virustotal.com an alleged malware in CSVUserlistBrowser named "Malware.HighConfidence". I had to look up myself what this malware is all about. It is said that it destroys files and registry settings, touts personal data and makes the PC slower. There is not a single byte of code in CSVUserlistBrowser which justifies such allegations. But as I can do nothing against the fake messages of "WhiteArmor" I only can give this advice: If you trust "WhiteArmor" more than 64 other virus softwares and my statement, the case is easy to solve: Delete CSVUserlistBrowser and do not use it!
